Physics
Yes, if the friction was less than the force required to accelerate the upper block, it would accelerate more slowly than the bottom one. In other words slip :)

Physics
You are welcome :)

Physics
F = - k x = -130 (.1) = -13 N if they do not slip m = 6.25 kg a = 13/6.25 = 2.08 m/s^2 force required to accelerate small block = 1.25 *2.08 = 2.6 N do we have that much? weight = m g = 1.25 * 9.81 so max friction = .3*1.25*9.81 = 3.68 N so no slip :)

You have to add heat so endothermic 129 J per 2 mol 1 mol = 23 + 1 + 12 + 48 = 84 grams 2 mol = 168 grams we only have 18.5 grams so (18.5/168)129 = 14.2 Joules

change in x momentum = 2 * mass * x velocity = 2 * .275 * 4.5 sin 35 force on ball by wall = change in momentum /time = change in momentum/.008 wall on ball is -x so ball on wall is + x direction

R = 10*20 /30 = 20/3 i = 9 /(20/3) = 27/20 = 1.35 Amps Yes !

calculus
(14x + 4)cos(7x^2 + 4x)dx,substitution u = 7x^2 + 4x. u = 7 x^2 + 4 x du = 14 x dx + 4 dx = (14x+4)dx so we have integral of cos u du which is - sin u + c - sin (7x^2+4x) + c

calculus
u = x3 + 5x2 + 18 then du = 3 x^2 dx + 10 x dx so in fact we have u du integrate u^2/2 + c so the hard part is squaring .5 (x^3 + 5 x^2 + 18)^2 + c

also in your explanation explain that the cosine curve is 90 degrees or pi/2 radians behind the sine curve if you graph y = sin theta and y = cos theta versus theta

Algebra II
trig identity: sin theta = cos (pi/2-theta) so y = 3 sin (4x-pi) + 4 but from above trig identity y = 3 cos [ pi/2 - (4x-pi) ] + 4 or y = 3 cos (-4x + 3 pi/2) + 4 but cos (- theta) = cos theta so y = 3 cos (4x-3 pi/2) + 4
