This is the Crailsheim water tower in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Its construction was completed in 1912. The base of the tower is a graduated cylinder about 19.2 m high with a diameter of 11.5 m at the base and 8.1 m at the top. a)The spherical tank holds 4.08 1...
A regular triangular pyramid has an altitude of 15.0 m and the base is 8.00 m on a side. Find the area of a section made by a plane parallel to the base and 8.00 m from the vertex.
A chemical engineer designed a 625 ft long tailings channel to have a rhombus cross-section that is 9.5 ft deep, with walls sloping at an acute angle of 44a. A contractor placed a bid to excavate the canal at $195/cubic yard plus 20% profit. What was the bid?
A pelican ﬂying along a horizontal path drops a ﬁsh from a height of 6.0 m. The ﬁsh travels 7.7 m horizontally before it hits the water below. What was the pelicans initial speed? The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s 2. If the pelican was travelin...
Janet jumps oﬀ a high diving platform with a horizontal velocity of 2.25 m/s and lands in the water 1.6 s later. How high is the platform? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s 2
If a rock is thrown upward on the planet Mars with a velocity of 13 m/s, its height in meters t seconds later is given by y = 13t − 1.86t2. (Round your answers to two decimal places.) (a) Find the average velocity over the given time intervals.
How do you find the v^2?
A mass m1 = 3.3 kg rests on a frictionless table and connected by a massless string over a massless pulley to another mass m2 = 4.4 kg which hangs freely from the string. When released, the hanging mass falls a distance d = 0.87 m. 1) How much work is done by gravity on the tw...
Four boxes of cereal are to be selected at random from a continuous process that fills boxes labeled "Contents: 340 g." The contents of the first three boxes are found to weigh 339.0g, 337.7 g, and 338.9 g. (a) What minimum weight of cereal must the fourth box contai...
Before going into orbit, an astronaut has a mass of 55 kg. When in orbit, a measurement determines that a force of 67.1 N causes her to move with an acceleration of 1.1 m/s2. To regain her original weight, should she go on a diet or start eating more candy? To answer this, fin...
