I am tempted go say for heavens sake Google him but try A.

calculus
find dy/dx, the slope call it m at the given point use the point in the equation to find b in y = m x + b

calculus
Exactly the same way I did the ellipse.

Now wait a minute. Try this one yourself first.

Physics
Ac = omega^2 R F = m Ac 26.4*9.81 = 3.19 (omega^2)(.795) omega^2 = 102 omega = 10.1 radians/s maximum v = omega R so v </= 8.03 meters/ second

calculus
2 x dx + x dy + y dx - 2 y dy = 0 dy ( x-2y) = - dx ( 2x + y) dy/dx = (2 x + y)/(2y-x) = slope at x = 2 4 + 2 y - y^2 = 5 y^2 - 2 y + 1 = 0 (y -1)^2 = 0 y = 1 so dy/dx = (5)/0 undefined

calculus
8 y dy + 2 x dx = 0 so dy/dx = m = -x/4y at x = 3, y = -2 dy/dx = -3/(4y) = 3/8 = m so y = (3/8) x + b -2 = (3/8)3 + b b = -25/8 so y = (3/8) x -25/8 8 y - 3 x = -25 3 x - 8 y = 25 (b)

Mat/116
went down 30 degrees in six hours T = - (30/6) t + b = -5 t + b -17 = -5 (2) + b b = -7 so T = -5 t - 7 check at 8 hours T = -5(8) -7 T = -40 - 7 T = -47, yes, good

well, let's do the first half of the problem, upward, symmetrical velocity profile during fall g = -9.81 m/s^2 v = Vi - g t v = Vi - 9.81 t v = 0 at top in 5 seconds 0 = Vi - 9.81(5) Vi = 49 m/s

Physics
v = Vi + a t v = 0 after 20 ft we hope Vi = 20 * 5280ft/mi /3600s/h = 29.33 ft/s so a t = -29.33 a = -29.33/t d = Vi t + (1/2) a t^2 20 = 29.33 t + .5 (-29.33/t)(t^2) 20 = .5 * 29.33 t t = 1.36 seconds a = - 21.6 ft/s^2

physics
.7 = a/g = a/9.81 a = 6.87 m/s^2

?????
What net force is acting on this system if both blocks are on the table?

Physics
F = m g F = 2.25 * 9.8 = 22.05 N accelerated mass = m = 5.53 + 2.25 = 7.78kg a = F/m = 22.05/7.78 = 2.83 m/s^2 F on top block is force in cord F = m a = 5.53 * 2.83 = 15.7 N

Physics
m g = 33 * 9.8 Newtons 2. MASS DOES NOT CHANGE !!!!!!! 3. 33 * 9.8 / 6

Physics
u = horizontal velocity = 5.7 cos 58 = 3.02 m/s forever Vi = initial speed up = 5.7 sin 58 = 4.83 m/s v = Vi - 9.8 t at top, v = o 0 = 4.83 - 9.8 t t = .493 s at top h = 1.3 + Vi t - 4.9 t^2 t at top is .493 so h at top = 1.3 + 4.83(.493)-4.9(.493)^2 = 2.49 meters above ground...

Physics
The horizontal component of velocity does not change. Ignoring friction, there is no horizontal force, therefore no acceleration, therefore constant velocity in direction with no force. THIS IS IMPORTANT ! u = 15.6 cos 56.9

a = F/m F pilot = m pilot * same a

d = (1/2) a t^2 solve for a F = m a = mu m g so mu = a/g

copy and paste: this: (x^2+x-2) / (x^2-3x-4) here: http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/function-grapher.php

Math
y = (x-1)(x+2) / [ (x-4)(x+1)] when x = +1 , y = 0 when x = -2 , y = 0 when x = 0 , y = -2/-4 = 1/2 vertical when x = 4 or x = -1 = x^2/x^2 --> 1 when x is big positive or big negative

Calculus

as + af + ca = 778 af = as -195 ca = as -242 so as + as-195 + as-242 = 778 3 as = 1215 as = 405 you can take it from there I think.

Sloshing water frequency
sorry, have shallow water limit wrong speed proportional to square root of depth v = k L^.5 T = L/v = L/(k L^.5) = c sqrt L so frequency = constant / sqrt L so same ratio, 1/sqrt 10

Sloshing water frequency
by the way if the wavelength is long compared to the water depth then the speed is proportional to the depth. v = k L T = L/v = L/kL = 1/k and the speed would be so much faster in the deeper pool that the period would be the same.
