This type of problem involves a lot of trig idenities, I just looked them up.. Lets look at the LHS: csc^2(x)= 1/sin^2(x) cos^2(x) = 1-sin^2(x) Now we can say: csc^2(x)*cos^2(x) = (1-sin^2(x))/sin^2(x) now lets look at the RHS: csc^2(x) = 1/sin^2(x) and we can change that 1 to...

Note that "r" and "g" cancels out when you put the coefficient of friction equal to each other for car A and car B
October 20, 2014

physics
Coefficient of friction is: u=v^2/(r*g) now lets apply this formula to the problem Set Car A = Car B and you get V_a^2/V_b^2 = u_a/u_b v_b=v_a*sqrt(u_b/u_a) (13.8)*sqrt(.843/.333) = 21.95 m/s

Well, rate of change = slope deltaY/deltX = slope deltaY = (y2-y1) deltaX =(x2-x1) For the year 1990-1992: deltaY = (55-52) = 3 deltaX =(1992-1990) = 2 3/2 = 1.5=slope So basically, you have to pick 2 years where deltaY > 3 deltaY <= 2 so the only years that meet those ...

Sorry, I made an error… Vector A has both an x and y component: Fx=10cos25=9.06 Fy=10sin25=4.266 Magnitude of A = sqrt(9.06^2+4.266^2) = 10.0141 Vector B only has x components: Fx=8 Magnitude of B = 8 10.0141*8 = 80.112

If I'm reading this correctly, the question wants you to find the magnitude of vector A and then multiply it to magnitude of vector B. If that's the case then… Vector A has both an x and y component: Fx=10cos25=9.06 Fy=10sin25=4.266 Magnitude of A = sqrt(9.06^2+4....
