The answer is in the link Ms. Sue gave you.

Alegbra
It is very difficult to fit a line to one point.

Alegbra
both sides are 0 at (6,-8) then y goes down 5 times as fast as x goes up check: from that point go right 1 and down 5 (7, -13) is that on the line? -13 + 8 = ???? -5 (7-6) -5 = -5(1) sure enough

engr240
I have no idea. Is this part of an equation? Should it be equal to zero or something?

Alegbra
y = m x + b 7 = 0 + b b = 7 so y = -6 x + 7 where does that hit x axis ? 0 = -6 x + 7 x = 7/6 so (7/6 , 0) draw line through (7/6 , 0) and (0 , 7)

No (former MIT professor), I do not do MITx problems in Course 8 or Course 2. You are on your own. The 8.01x crowd swamped this board the last time around.

a) Huh? at x = 0 and t = 0 , y = 0 so the phase constant is 0 b) at x = .0229 m and t = .197 .745(.0229) - 42.9(.197) = -8.434 radians = -482 degrees which is -360 - 123 degrees

physics
well, first do the vertical problem, the ball how long does it take to fall 20 m? 20 = (1/2) (10) t^2 t^2 = 4 t = 2 seconds so it will take to seconds to fall. By symmetry it will also take 2 seconds to rise and hit the plane how fast is it going when it hits the ground? u = a...

by the way part B is also the average speed times the time x = 5.25 * 5.2

physics
To go from km/h to m/s divide by 3.6 which is 1000 m/km / 3600 s/min a = change in velocity/time (note it is negative) F = m a By the way, this ignores wave resistance which would be a major part of the retarding force.

chemistry
P1 V1 = P2 V2 so V2 = P1 V1/P2 I am assuming that these are total pressures and no "gage" pressures. If they are gage pressures add 1 atm to both P1 and P2

physics
well, I guess it is ok to use g = 9.81 m/s^2 but we will have to check later if the thing is a significant fraction of an earth radius high. (1/2) m v^2 = m g h v^2 = 2 g h h = v^2/19.6 = 49*10^4 / 19.6 = 25,000 meters that is a small fraction of earth radius so constant g ass...

1 g/cm^3*1kg/1000 g* 100*100*100 cm^3/m^3 = 1000 kg/m^3 you know this anyway because the density of fresh water is about 1 g/cc or 1000kg/m^3

well, if it ends in 0 or 5, divide by 5 26 / 21 that is 13*2/7*3 so there is nothing more to be cancelled.

Because I believe that is the correct value for radius of the earth.

physic
for earth for example F = G M1 M2 /r^2 = (6.67*10^-11)(5.98*10^24)(67.5)/ (6.38*10^6 )^2 = 66.14 * 10^ 1 = 661 Newtons that better be pretty close to m g or 67.5*9.81 = 662 Newtons

physic
F = G M1 M2 / d^2 where G = 6.67*10-11 N m^2/kg^2 I think you mean radius for distance radius of earth = 6.38*10^6 meters

Hey look. I showed you how to do it for the earth mass and man mass. Do the same for the two balls .3 m apart. G * .3 *.3 / 3^2 = G
