Suppose that a vegetable vendor pays 7% interest daily on a $10 loan. Then, suppose that this individual was able to save $0.50 per day by drinking less tea. Calculate the number of days it would take for the vendor to no longer need to borrow money in order to purchase $10 of...
something is wrong. i couldn't find right answer
Show that a conventional x-ray generator is incapable of generating x-rays of wavelength as low as 10-11m. Do this by determining the identity of the target (in atomic number, Z) which would be needed to generate such x-rays.
The half-life of a first order reaction is determined to be 92.0 years. How long will it take for the concentration of the reactant to reach 2% of its initial value?
A formation energy of 1.11 eV is required to create a vacancy in a particular metal. At 777oC there is one vacancy for every 22,200 atoms. At what temperature will there be one vacancy for every 11,100 atoms?
You wish to increase the carbon content of a slab of steel by exposing it to a carburizing atmosphere at elevated temperature. The carbon concentration in the steel before carburization is 165.0 ppm and is initially uniform through the thickness of the steel. The atmosphere of...
(a) Certain alloys such as LaNi5 can store hydrogen at room temperature. A plate of LaNi5 containing no hydrogen is placed in a chamber filled with pure hydrogen and maintained at a constant pressure. At what depth from the surface will the concentration of hydrogen be 1/2 the...
