It was in a steel box lined with layers and layers of bubble wrap ( one of the many ways my students use in the contest)

Calculus
so it is positive for x>.316 and for x <.316

Calculus
Note that you did the second derivative correctly. It is easier to write it their way y" = 10e^(-5x^2)(10x^2-1) It is zero at x = +/- .316

physics
mass 1 accelerates downward at a so mass 2 accelerates up at a tension = T mass 1: m g - T = m a so 3 g - T = 3 a mass 2: T - mg = m a so T = 2 (g+a) substitute T in mass 1 equation 3 g - 2(g+a) = 3 a g - 2 a = 3 a a = g/5 = 9.81/5 = 1.962 You could also use the total mass of ...

DO NOT USE BOTTLED WATER !!! 1. It is a waste of money 2. It fills the ocean with plastic bottle remains. That is once it gets thrown off the boats and bridges. 3. It burns up energy and resources for manufacture of bottles, distribution fuel etc etc anyway your answer is right.

You are correct, but did you have to ask? :)

You got the second one, just reversed x y = y x !

I am going to assume it is algebra first take t = 0 at 1:30 T = Ti - k t Ti = 32.5 so T = 32.5 - k t 30.3 = 32.5 - k (1 hour) k = 2.2 so T = 32.5 - 2.2 t 37 = 32.5 - 2.2 t t = - 2.04 call it 2 hours so by that linear model 11:30 am now I will work on the more realistic calculu...

Are you sure this is calculus? You want exponential decay to room temp? Or is it algebra and you want a linear function?

Yes !!! You got it. even the -1 * -1 = + 1 part

sorry about the caps, was doing tax returns with caps lock on

math
yOU HAVE [X - [Y-Z) ] THAT IS [ X - Y - NEGATIVE Z ] - A NEGATIVE IS POSITIVE [ X -Y PLUS Z ]

math
x^2-(y - z)^2 exactly the same way let a = x let b = y-z now you have a^2-b^2 = (a-b)(a+b) so [x -(y-z) ] [ x + (y-z) ] (x-y+z)(x+y-z) you were close

math
let x = (a-b) let y = c then you have x^2 - y^2 = (x-y)(x+y) now put in (a-b) for x and put in c for y

physics
the only one that lacks serious damping is the light in a vacuum.

Chemistry URGENT
I see nothing wrong with them.

Chemistry URGENT
Oh, divide by 2 C6 H10 O5 + 6 O2 ---> 6CO2 + 5 H2O

Chemistry URGENT
C6 H10 O5 + O2 ---> CO2 + H2O we need an even number of O atoms 2 C6 H10 O5 + x O2 ---> 12CO2 + 10 H2O now O balance 10 + 2x = 24 + 10 x = 12 2 C6 H10 O5 + 12 O2 ---> 12CO2 + 10 H2O

MATH WORD PROBLEM
b+c = 420 so c = 420 - b c = (3/4) b so 3 b/4 = 420 - b 3 b = 1680 - 4 b 7 b = 1680 b = 240 bears total b = sb + bb but bb = (9/7)sb so 240 = sb +(9/7) sb = (16/7)sb sb = 105 small bears bb = 240 - 105 = 136 big bears I will leave the last part for you

Chemistry
2 * 7.9 = 15.8 mols C 15.8 * 12 g/mol = 189.6 grams of carbon

whoops
we got carbon as a result of step 2 so we could put it back in to step 1 then we would only need two carbons fo each CaCO3

Chemistry
In the end for the carbon 3 C --> CO + C + CaCO3 so in the end we need 3 C atoms for every molecule of CaCO3 C = 12 g Ca = 40 g 3O = 3*16 = 48 g so CaCO3 = 100 g/mol so we get 7.90 mols of CaCO3 for that we need 3*7.9 = 23.7 mols of C 23.7 * 12 = 284.4 grams of Carbon

There is no sure answer since there is not a constant number of leaves per inch 2/3 = .67 leaves/inch 14/15 = .933 leaves /inch so 6 * .67 = 4.02 6 *.933 = 5.6 leaves per inch so probably more than four and less than 6 try 5 also see: http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=12608...
