Go back and check your volleyball question. I just saw it and you missed the angle of launch in your equations.

Pre-Calculus
Hey Alexis, between the two of us we have been doing an awful lot of problems for you. Many of them are the same old, same old. It is time for you to try and post what you did.

Pre-Calculus

first is ok second no by conservation of momentum the velocity will remain the same until an outside force ACCELERATES it F = m A

math
4 y = -x + 5 y = (-1/4) x + 5/4 so m, slope = -1/4 y = -(1/4) x + b 9 = -(1/4)(6) + b 36 = - 6 + 4 b 4 b = 42 b = 10.5 so y = (-1/4)x + 10.5

math
12/8 = 3/2 = 1.5 9 = 1.5 w = 3 w/2 w = 18/3 = 6 feet 6 ft (12 in/ft) = 72 inches

Pre-Calculus
t = x - 6 y = 2 (x-6) - 4 y = 2 x -16

Pre-Calculus
Oh, I see from your other questions you are not using vector notation x = 0 + t = t y = 4 + 6 t

Pre-Calculus
y = 6 x + 4 through point (0,4) slope = 6 well (0,4) + (1,6) t should work

Pre-Calculus
That is the resultant, but you need the opposite to that so move it around 180 to cancel it

Math
y(t) = -16 t^2 + 32 sin 35 t + 4.5 x = 32 cos 35

Physics
three masses m .18 m and m - .18 m = .82 m ----------------------- momentum = m Va forever so m Va = .82 m (0) + .18 m (v) v is relative to ground or Va = .18 v throw speed relative to moving cart = v - Va = .82 v v = Va/.18 = 5.56 Va new speed of baggage relative to ground = ...

Math
what you have is .7 , .75 , .4 , .5 , .67 so 2/5 , 1/2 , 2/3 , 7/10 , 3/4

Alegbra
.05 x + .08(5000-x) = 331

math101
I will assume you mean (1/4) x - 18 = (1/2) x - 6 then -18 + 6 = (2/4) x - (1/4)x -12 = x/4 x = - 48 If I misinterpreted, please repeat using parentheses to show what is numerator and what is denominator.

math
By the way, we know any angle greater than 45 degrees will cause a crash without doing any arithmetic. At 45 degrees the tree is 65 feet high.

math
yes, 65 tan 50 is 77.5 so crash

20 at t = 0 5 at t = 40 A = C e^kt 5 = 20 e^40 k .25 = e^40 k ln .25 = 40 k -1.39 = 40 k k = - .03466 so A = 20 e^-.03466 t when A = 10, we have not only the blank filled but the half life .5 = e^-.03466 t ln .5 = -.6931 = -.03466t t = 20 I think you can do it now

Physics
If it is at rest plane angle T from horizontal force down plane = m g sin T force up plane = mu m g cos T no acceleration so mu m g cos T = m g sin T or mu = tan T

history (presidents)

chemistry
Pb(NO3)2 (aq) + MgCl2 (aq) ----> PbCl2 (s) + Mg(NO3)2 (aq) Pb++ + 2NO3- + Mg++ + 2Cl- ---> PbCl2 + Mg++ + 2 NO3- Mg and NO3 the same both sides, ions so net: Pb++ + 2 Cl- ---> PbCl2 solid

Physics
at rest so no net force force down plane = m g sin T force up plane = mu m g cos T so m g sin T = mu m g cos T so mu = tan T if friction just holds it

physics
On Jupiter 2900 * 2.53 or 2900 * 380.150 which is the same neptune 2900 * 1.18

Hey, all these questions are really the same. I think you can do them now.

physics
m g where g is 6.5 m/s^2

physics
m g' at this altitude = 850 so g' = 850/470 = 1.81 m/s^2 we are way out there! 1.81/9.81 = Rearth^2/r^2 Re^2 = 6370000^2 = (6.37*10^6)^2 =40.6*10^12 so r^2 = 9.81 * 40.6*10^12 /1.81 r^2 = 220 * 10^12 r = 14.8 * 10^6 meters = 14,800 km r - Re = altitude = 8,430 km

math
9.81/1.44 scroll down

physics
The rest is just to confuse the student by the way.

physics
F = G Mm /R^2 F' = G M m /(1.2R)^2 = G M m /R^2 * 1/1.44 9.81 * 1/1.44 = 6.81 m/s^2

Chemistry 2
BaCl2 + Na2SO4 ---> BaSO4 + 2NaCl Ba++ + 2Cl- +2Na+ + SO4-- --> BaSO4 + 2 Na+ + 2Cl- Na+ and Cl- same both sides so net: Ba++ + SO4-- ---> BaSO4

If you find out please tell me. I like meters, kilograms, seconds

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.

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.

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

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
