**interesting perhaps relevant**

I just ran into a story about Neanderthals in Europe which might be relevant :) I hope others can open it: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/crux/2017/01/24/neanderthals-underrated-genius/?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=News0_DSC_170126_000000_Final%...

**Needs attention from Social Science teacher**

I tried but not my thing :)

**Physics-Momentum**

initial momentum = 1500*15+2500*9 final momentum = -1500*2 + 2500 x initial = final :) 15*15+25*9 = 25x - 30 25 x = 225+30+225 = 480 x = 19.2 =============== check 45,000 = 45,000 ok

**Math**

20 inches/305 feet = 20 inches/3660 inches = 1 inch/183 inches or 1 inch/15.25 ft

**Trig**

You mean for the slope of that line? y = -4x slope = -4 in quadrant 2 x = -1 y = 4 hypotenuse = sqrt(17) sin = 4/sqrt17 cos = -1/sqrt17 tan =-4 in quadrant 4 x = 1 y=-4 h = sqrt 17 again sin = -4/sqrt17 cos = 1/sqrt17 tan = -4 again

**Math**

easier to factor top and bottom that way

**Math**

That is why I wrote 45 not 4.5 and 2700

**Math**

45 inches/2700 miles = .01666.....inch/mile or 5 inches/300 miles or 1 inch / 6 miles :)

**math**

8x + 24 = 8(x+3)

**Trig**

1/cos T = -5 cos T = -1/5 = -0.20 the absolute value is between 0 and 1 so sure, in quadrant two or three about 101 degrees or 360-101 =259 degrees

Hey, draw number lines !

**Evaluating algebraic expressions**

46 > 42 46 is to the right of 42 on your number line. if you move left n units from each, 46 - n is still to the right of 42 - n

**Math**

(4x + 5)(7x + 7) = 28x^2+63x+35 (10x+10)(2x + 6) = 20x^2+80x+60 ---------------subtract---------- 8x^2 -17 x -25 = remaining roof which is (8x-25)(x+1)

she doubled speed so took half the time ! half of 50 minutes is 25 minutes

**Math please check**

assume you mean: [ f(4)-f(2) ] / (2) f(x) = x(2-x) if x = 4 4(2-4) = -8 if x = 2 2(2-2) = 0 so we have -8/2 = -4

**Applied Calculus**

oh, since this is calculus and not physics: d^2h/dt^2 = -9.81 so dh/dt = -9.81 t + constant at t = 0, v = Vi so dh/dt = Vi -9.81 t then h = Vi t -(1/2)9.81 t^2 + constant h = Hi when t = 0 so h = Hi + Vi t -4.9 t^2

**Applied Calculus**

a. Vi = 5 v = Vi - 9.8 t v = zero at top t = 5/9.81 seconds to top b. h = Hi + Vi t -4.9 t^2 = 25+ 5 t - 4.9 t^2 c. 0 = 25 + 5 t - 4.9 t^2 solve quadratic for t use the positive t the negative t is before you threw it :) d. again v = Vi - 9.81 t v = 5 - 9.81*t use t from part ...

**Trig**

cot = 1/tan = cos/sin csc = 1/sin so cot = csc*cos cos = sqrt(1-sin^2) cot = 3.589142*sqrt(1-1/3.589142^2) =3.447019 or 3.45

**physics**

Look mainly at the low "beat" frequency. 4sin96pit + 8(sin 100pit +sin99pit) 4 sin96pit +16 sin100pitcos4pit saying 199/2 is about 100 that is about 4 sin 100 pi t [1+ 4cos 2 pi t] the low beat frequency is max when 2 pi t = 0, 2pi, etc min when 2 pi t = pi/2, pi/2...

distributive property of multiplication price = x tax = 0.05 x which is 5%/100 of x 1 x + .05 x = (1+.05) x = 1.05 x

**Math (Octants identifying) *emergency***

**Math (Octants identifying) *emergency***

1,1,1 1,1,-1 1,-1,1 1,-1,1 -1,1,1 -1,1,-1 -1,-1,1 -1,-1,-1 are all in different octants you need the sign of x y and z. They are called octants because there are 8 of them. Draw a picture.

**physics**

say the water is moving in x direction at 4 km/h say we swim in y direction at 3 km/h then our speed is sqrt (3^2+4^2) = 5 km/h tan angle above x axis is tan theta = 3/4 = .75

**chemistry**

**Physics**

if you want the compass angle east of north, it is 90 - that

**Physics**

North 150 cos 60 = 75 km N East 150 sin 60 - 100 = 29.9 km E distance = sqrt(75^2+29.9^2) tan angle north of east = 75/29.9

**calculus**

No need for L'Hopital 16-x^2 = (4-x)(4+x) so you really have: (4-x) at x = -4 4-(-4) = 8

You are wasting your time and ours. Please take the course before you try to do the problems.

Well, you do not build each piston for each cylinder. You order the piston from the auto parts store for your type of engine. It better be the same size and shape as the old one or it either will not fit the cylinder or the connecting rod or the piston rings.

**Geometry / Trig**

well, we need the area of an equilateral triangle with sides of one cm. Then we multiply by six for altitude sin 30 = (1/2)/1 cos 30 = h/1 h=.866 so area of triangle = (1/2)(1)(.866) = .433 then multiply by six 6*.433 = 2.6 cm^2

Way too much H2 H2O = 2 + 16 = 18 grams/mol that is 16 g/mol of O so 8 g is 1/2 mol of O H2 is 2 g/mol so 5g is 2.6 mol, more than we need so we end up with 1/2 mol of water which is 9 grams

Yes. I might argue about #3 because Thompson's "plum pudding" model was pretty crude compared to Rutherford's model, but Thomson did have sub atomic particles.

Did the vapor pressure of this liquid change when you squeezed the gas down? I think not. Therefore the pressure did not change. You have half as many gas molecules above the fluid. Half the gas molecules condensed back into liquid form.
