That is why NY caught up to those earlier big cities, the cheap shipping to and from the west through the canal.

world history 2
The Erie Canal connected New York City up the Hudson River and through the canal to the Great Lakes. It is much, much cheaper to ship grain and stuff by boat than by road. So that opened up the mid west and made NY a big city.

LOL, now how did New York City ever catch up to Philadelphia and Boston ?

Science
F = m a F up from scale - m g = m a but a = -g (free fall) so F up from scale - m g = - mg so F up from scale = 0

Science
Well, I agree because it says changes and the cat changed direction twice, once to turn around and once to go from horizontal speed to vertical speed, thereby changing velocity without much change in speed.

science
To continue moving in a circle requires an inward directed force from tension in a string or banking of a curve because the object is continually accelerating toward the center. If you let it go, it would go in a straight line. The constant acceleration toward the center is ca...

Momentum is product of mass and velocity. At the same speed, the heavier object will have more momentum. I think this is Physics, not English, by the way.

72 km/hr *1000/3600 = 20 m/s average speed during acceleration = (20+0)/2 = 10 m/s 104 = 10 m/s * time to stop so time = t = 10.4 seconds

So what is your known value of x ? multiply it by two then subtract 20

Polynomial
Yes

Math
tan^2 = sin^2/cos^2 = s^2/c^2 (s^2/c^2+1)(c^2-1) = s^2 -s^2/c^2 +c^2 -1 but s^2 + c^2 = 1 so we have -s^2/c^2 = -(1 - c^2)/c^2 = - 1/c^2 + 1 = 1 - sec^2

Pre-Calc
well I suppose x^2 = t^2 -6 t + 9 for x = t-3 and for x = 3-t but t = y-3 t^2 = y^2-6y+9 so x^2 = y^2-6y+9 -6(y-3) + 9 x^2 = y^2 + 36 y^2 = x^2-36 y = (x^2-36)^.5

Algebra
well, 7 d m = 7 d m b^0 You have it in DESCENDING not ascending powers of b -7dm + 25d b^5 - 6d b^6 + 3 b^10

Pre-Calc
b^logb(x) = x so 27^log(2x-1) = 27^(4/3) = 3^4 = 9*9 = 81 so 2x-1 = 81 2 x = 82 x = 41

Math
cos(pi/2+x) = - sin x (draw it on a graph , angle x to the left of y axis in quadrant 2) also sin - x = - sin x so we end up with (-sin x)(-sin x) = sin^2 x

P V = n R T constant here so 550 mL/ 22 = 25 mL

sorry typo cos x cos y + sin x sin y 5 sqrt 7/52 + 9/13 = .9467

Trig
cos (x-y) = cos x cos y = sin x sin y cos x = -sqrt7 /4 cos y = -5/13 sin x = 3/4 sin y = 12/13 so cos(x-y)=5sqrt7/52 - 9/13

I just used 13 because I wanted easy numbers trying x = 15 now .5 y = 12 y = 24 so 15/24 yes 15-3/24 = 1/2 yes 15/30 = 1/2 yes so 15/24 is just as good as 13/20

m and .1 m original momentum = m VA momentum remains m Va throiughout so m Va = .1 m (Va+V) and m Va = .1 m (Va-V) + .9 m Vb so .1 m Va+.1 m V = .1 m Va-.1 m V+.9 m Vb .2 m V = .9 m Vb so V = 4.5 Vb but m Va = .1 m Va + .1 m V so V = 9 Va so 9 Va = 4.5 Vb Vb/Va = 2
