I tried to get help from a friend, but her email just said to use tan theta = x/D. I'm not sure why she said to use tan theta, and when I do that-> tan 0.00001165*2.4m=x I get x= 0.000000487 which is obviously not right.

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) can resolve objects that have a small angular separation because there is no atmospheric distortion of the light. (i.e. The HST has excellent resolving power.) Its 2.4-m-diameter primary mirror can collect light from distant galaxies that ...

Hi Bob, I have to derive the error in the wavelength. I only know how to derive error equations from multiplication or addition/subtraction. For example, if I needed to derive an arror equation for N=MT it would be deltaN=(deltaM+deltaT)N So how do I do it for a division ...

okay, so I set it up as a ratio: [(1-v child)/v]*freq sound OVER [(1+v child)/v]*freq sound ALL THAT =1.05 So I have 1.05=[(1-v child)/343]/[(1+v child)/343] But I can't figure out how to manipulate this equation. I keep getting the v child as 341 m/s, and I know that kid ...
