If a student keeps asking similar questions the student needs to look at earlier replies and try to do the next one without help Jack. We can then check the answer but just telling the student how to do it time after time helps not in the least.

pi r^2 = s^2 4 s + 2 pi r = 3600 it seems they want you to use x for 2 pi r so r = x/(2pi) pi r^2 = x^2/(4 pi) = s^2 so 4 s + x = 360 2x/( sqrt pi) + x = 360 2.13 x = 360 x = 169.1 cm 360 - x = 4s = 190.9 cm s = 47.7 ------------------------- check r = x/(2 pi) = 26.9 pi r^2...

well, we know that sqrt 4 = 2 so the answer is (1/2) sqrt 3 however in general to clear the denominator: multiply top and bottom by sqrt 4 3 sqrt 3 sqrt 4 / (3*4) = 6 sqrt 3 /12 = (1/2) sqrt 3

The 90 kg student was standing still, momentum of zero. there was a push for .0003 seconds then his speed was 5 m/s so change in momentum = 90*5 - 90*0 = 90*5

force = change in momentum / change in time 90*5/.0003 in Newtons by the way .0003 is a very short pushing time, impractical I think. (typo?)

call the slope m then in general for any two points on a line of form y = m x + b the slope is change in y / change in x so for two points (x1 ,y1) and (x2 , y2) m = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) the same is true for any other point on the line (x , y) so also m = (y2 - y) / (x2 - x) or m...
