math
I'd go for "negative y-values are reflected in the x-axis", but my terminology may be out of date.

Math
Apart from the subject, that equation isn't going to peak for x > 0. I think you may have an error in the question.

Math
First, 5:00, 120 minutes, is right. You can do this without algebra. In fact, algebra would only complicate it. In the jargon, 120 is the lowest common multiple (LCM) of 40 and 60. That means that it's the smallest number that both divide into evenly. 40, 80, 120 60, 120 S...

Physics - heat
1 caloris is the amount of energy needed to raise the temp of 1g or water 1 degree. So if it raises 50g by 28 deg, that's how many calories? OK, so we know how many calories affected the water, but we are also told that the burning was only 40% efficient, which means that ...

physics
You're very welcome, Mary. Sometimes, just sometimes, a picture, or graph, or video, is worth much more than a thousand words.

physics
When the rivet goes in, let's say its length is L. As it cools, it shortens a little, so its length is now L-delta(L). But it's holding the two plates, so as it shortens, it pulls them together just a little, by the amount delta(L). What you're thinking is that its...

physics
Consider the amount of contraction in cooling - in _both_ directions. The cross-sectional contraction is a minor negative, but the rivet is much longer than its cross-section, so the contraction along its length is proportionally greater. And, remembering that the rivet is hol...

Logarithums?
I don't see why you have to convert it; they are indeed the same thing. I want to draw a graph for this, but I can't :-) In general, you can use the rule that ln(1/x) = -ln(x), so you can simply declare that and be done. I'll try to show an equivalence so it might ...

science
For more details, look up "Newton's law of universal gravitation" on Wikipedia, but the gist is that the force between the Earth and the Moon depends on the product of the masses divided by the square of the distance, and then thetre's a factor g that is cons...

math
I think this is not the full question?

math
The brackets mean that you need to add the 8 and the 7 first. 8 + 7 = 15. Now multiply that 15 by 3, and multiply that answer by 2.

Algebra I
Call the numbers A, B and C We know A + B + C = 147 We are told that: B = 2 A + 4 (two times the first number and add 4) and C = 3 A - 5 (five less than three times the first number) This is called substituting. Now we can substitute (2 A + 4) for B whenever we see it. Using t...

What might be the differences between liquids in a mixture? They might have different... what? Boiling points? Freezing points? Density, which in liquids we often measure as specific gravity. If it's a mixture, the two liquids will very probably have different boiling poin...

physics
Sorry, missed your followup earlier. I get the numbers you do, but something is funny with the question. h = 3.40t^3 anything with a t^3 term isn't acceleration; it's jerk. Constant jerk, in fact, that would have the chopper well into outer space in 60 seconds! Sorry, ...

physics
How high is the chopper after 2.05 s? call it H H = 3.4 * 2.05^3 m Now from that height, it drops something. I assume we're not taking air resistance into account here, or the question would be much longer. I don't know how accurate the measuure your class uses for g, ...

ad lib. is short for ad libitum meaning at will (more or less) et alia, shortened to et al. (et = and, alia = others) versus (against) gets cut to vs. (why is abbreviation such a long word? :-) Quod (which) vide (see) gets shortened to q.v. cf., short for confer, means compare...

physics
Assume the particle starts at x=0. What is the position after 2.3 s? x = (50 * 2.3) + (10 * 2.3^2) That's how far it has travelled in 2.3s From there the average velocity is easy, I think

math
Scientists and mathematicians tend to avoid pie charts, because humans have a harder time judging angles and areas than line lengths. The Wikipedia page on Pie_charts, which I just visited, shows examples of a pie chart with apparently equal-ish segments that show up as clearl...

physics
Is the question average speed? Assuming average speed, you must find total distance, then total time, then divide them Time is easy: 24 + 36 + 44 + 13 minutes So how far do you get driving 24.0 min at 63.0 km/h? 36.0 min at 45.0 km/h? 44.0 min at 49.0 km/h? 60 min at 63 kph wo...

math
How you present the pie chart is kind of up to you, unless you were given specific instructions. You could put the numbers of deaths, or the percentages, or both. Apparently I can't put a link here, but if you go to the Wikipedia page Pie_chart you will see typical examples.

math
The numbers are close, but not exact since for example alcohol is about 12.6 rather than 13, but yes, you've clearly got it - but be careful; those numbers are degrees, not percent Alcohol is about 3.5%, and that makes about 12.6 degrees of a circle

math
Ayup! 54120 total deaths 510 from murder will be represented by about 3.4 degrees of the circle

math
A useful approach is to take a simpler case Suppose there were just 5 by murders, 30 by accidents, and 65 by tobacco How many would all the deaths add up to? What proportion of all deaths would be by tobacco? So there were 100 deaths, 65 by tobacco So tobacco would be 65% of a...

Technology
What about the zipper? Always my favorite tech story. :-) Or the camera phone? Quite recent, and there's a great story about its invention, which you can find in several places.

math
Multiply both sides by d^2 F(d^2)=G(mM) Divide both sides by F (d^2)=G(mM)/F Now take the square root d = SQRT(G(mM)/F)

math
Well, you have a) one variable per entity, and they are b) discrete rather than continuous, and c) within a reasonable range; the largest is no more than 80 times as big as the smallest, so you won't go wrong with a simple linear graph - column or bar chart. If you had two...
