x=speed of boat in still water. assuming the problem implies 26 miles each way. to figure this out, I wrote this out in simple miles per hour terms. Example: (hours/mile)*miles + (hours/mile)*miles = hours so: (1/(x+5))*26+(1/(x-5))*26=10.6 x+5 represents the speed of the boat...

I'm not understanding. what do you mean figure the moles of H2O2 in 3.4 g of water? You get the same number of moles of water? I calculated: nH2O2 = 3.4g/34.02g/mol= 0.0999412 mol Water on the other hand has 18.02 mol sorry but I'm not understanding. I think for this ...

1 gallon toluene = about 3,785 mL density = about 0.867 g/mL mass toluene = 3785 mL x 0.867 g/mL = 3282 grams. C7H8 + 9O2 ==> 7CO2 + 4H2O moles toluene = grams/molar mass = 3282/92 = about 36 moles. From the equation above, 1 mole C7H8 will produce 7 moles CO2; therefore, ...

f = ma μk * f(normal) = m*a μk *m*g = m*a μk *g =a so a = μk*g this is defined to be a negative acceleration since the friction force works in the opposite direction to the movement of the puck vFinal = v0 + at so t = (vF-v0)/a d = t*(vF+v0)/2 so d = (vF+v0...
