Two curves on a highway have the same radii. However, one is unbanked and the other is banked at an angle θ. A car can safely travel along the unbanked curve at a maximum speed v0 under conditions when the coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is &...
A kite is hovering over the ground at the end of a straight 47-m line. The tension in the line has a magnitude of 14 N. Wind blowing on the kite exerts a force of 17 N, directed 55° above the horizontal. Note that the line attached to the kite is not oriented at an angle o...
The vapor pressure of pure acetone (propanone) is 266 torr. When a non-volatile solute is added, the vapor pressure of acetone above the solution falls to 232 torr. What is the mole fraction of acetone in the solution? Show work. A) 0.69 B) 0.32 C) 0.13 D) 0.045 E) 0.87
Isoamyl salicylate (м = 208.25 g/mol) has a pleasant aroma and is used in perfumes and soaps. Which of the following combinations gives a 0.75 m solution of isoamyl salicylate in ethyl alcohol (d = 0.7893 g/mL)
Explain how you would prepare 100.0 mL of 0.500 M NaCl solution. Include the appropriate glassware and calculations.
A two digit number has the property that the units digit is 4 less than the tens digit and the tens digit is twice the units digit. What is the number?
A model rocket launches with an initial velocity of 6 m/s, at an angle of 90 degrees (with respect to the horizon). The rocket's engine provides an acceleration of 2.2 m/s2, acting in the same direction as the initial velocity. After 20 seconds, the rocket engine cuts out....
A spacecraft is on a journey to the moon. At what point, as measured from the center of the earth, does the gravitational force exerted on the spacecraft by the earth balance that exerted by the moon? This point lies on a line between the centers of the earth and the moon. The...
The drawing (not to scale) shows one alignment of the sun, earth, and moon. The gravitational force SM that the sun exerts on the moon is perpendicular to the force EM that the earth exerts on the moon. The masses are: mass of sun = 1.99 1030 kg, mass of earth = 5.98 1024 kg, ...
