convert this into a projectile problem. First solve for velocity of projectile needed to reach ground at 10 meters when fired at 45 deg from height of 1 m Call that V1 Now find V2, the new velocity Q2 = .5 Q1 = .5 * V1 * A1 and Q2 = V2 A2 so V2 = .5 V1 (A1/A2) = .5*(1/.2) * V1...

**Calculus**

dC/dx = 100 - .2 x at x = 35 dC/dx = 100 - 7 = 93 dollars per club at a level of 35 clubs by the way total C for 35 clubs = 3877.5 or about an average of 111 dollars per club

**Chemistry**

one C per molecule? 6.02 * 10^23 molecules per mol 2.46 * 10^25 molecules *(1/6.02*10^23) = 40.9 mols How many grams? 40.9 * (12 + 4(35.5) ) what volume? grams / 2.71 g/mL

I bet you mean [ f(x) - f(a) ] / (x-a) Parentheses are VITAL ! f(a) = -2 a^2 + 5 a - 1 so [ -2(x^2-a^2) +5(x-a) -1+1 ]/(x-a) = [-2(x-a)(x+a) + 5(x-a) ]/(x-a) = -2(x+a)+5 Note for future calculus purposes that the limit of this as a approaches a this becomes -4 x + 5
