250 milliliters = 0.25 L; To make a 3.0 M NaOH solution from 6.0 M NaOH, you need equal parts of water and NaOH solution You need 0.25 Liters of the solution, so you need 1/2 * 0.25 = 125 milliliters 6.0 M NaOH, and 125 milliliters water

(1/p) + (1/q) = 1/f M = h'/h = -q/p, Where p is distance of object from lens, q is distance of image from lens, f is focal length of the lens, and M is the magnification f is positive when the lens is convex: 1/50 + 1/q = 1/15 q = 21.4 cm M = -21.4/50

F*r = I * a Where F is the force on the merry-go-round, r is the radius, I is the moment of inertia of the merry-go-round, and a is the angular acceleration for a solid, horizontal disk, the moment of inertia is: 1/2*m*r^2 F*r = 1/2*m*r^2*a F = 1/2*m*r*a w = w0 + a*t where w ...
