how far apart are they ? t in hours sqrt (x^2 + y^2) =sqrt [(50t)^2 + (60 t)^2] so d = (2500 + 3600)^.5 t d = 78.1 t so separation speed is 78.1 mph all the time

well they have to add up to one and there are 6 sides p(1) = n prime p(2) = 2n prime p(3) = n prime p(4) = 2n p(5) = n prime p(6) = 2n sum of p s is one 9 n = 1 n = 1/9 primes are 5n or 5/9

Angular momentum after = angular momentum before angular momentum before = I w = 1.4*10^-3 * .33 = .462 * 10^-3 angular momentum after = (1.4*10^-3 + 4.2*10^-3) w so w = .462/5.6 = .0835 rad/s

Actually I think the historical advantage of rivers is that you can float down them easily and if the wind happens to blow up river commonly, you can get up the river easily as well. (the Nile :)

In fact, more often than not, rivers are more like highways than barriers. Of curse as you know I feel the same way about oceans, but that is because I use them.

Of course there is a more basic way to look at this. F = m a = -mg so a = - g = -10 so v = -gt = -10 t so+- initial speed * t - (1/2)(10) t^2 0 = 3 + 0 - 5 t^2 t = sqrt(3/5) so v = -10 sqrt(3/5) = -sqrt(60) = -2 sqrt 15 = -7.75 which we knew
