Physics
So if I dropped the same ball twice at different heights suppose 1m and 500m the ball that was dropped at 500m would have a lower acceleratino but greater velocity?
April 2, 2009

Physics
Why is acceleration the same for all free-falling objects regardless of mass and distance? Please don't say according to this formula or something. could you please actually explain the theroy behind it.
April 2, 2009

Physics
How does mass effect a free falling object? I was thinking that if the mass is greater then object would have a higher acceleration because due to it's weight it would have less drag on it from the air. Something of that sort. Could someone else this to me please.

I dropped an object from a certain height and gravity was acting on it. What type of motion is that and how do I know this?

I did a ester lab not too long ago I was wondering why we submerged the ester in cold water before we started to waft the smell towards us.

Thank you :)

Chem
I did an experiment for creating an ester. So basically I added an acid to an alcohol. We were to also add H2SO4 solution. Why did we add that?

how would I do the elimination reaction of 2-chloropentane. When I figured it out I got the products as being 1-pentene and hydrogen chloride. Is this correct?

for the equation: propane + bromine how do I know on which carbon the Br would attatch itself to.

Why is it C7H8? Dosen't every C in benzene, with the exception of the C attacthed to the methyl group, have 2 hydrogens attactches to it since C needs to make 4 bonds?
March 12, 2009

chem
How would I balance the equation then. I`ve tried several times but it's not working out.

methyl benzene + oxygen is this just a combustion reactions so CO2 and H2O are produced?

Markovnikov's Rule
What if both carbon's have the same number of hydrogens, then which carbon gets "richer" in hydrogens?
March 12, 2009

OK, thanks DrBob :)
March 12, 2009

chem
I have a question that say 2-butyne reacts with hydrogen and butane is the product. Wouldn't 2-butene be the product because there are only 2 hydrogens and therefore they can only break one bond not 2.
March 12, 2009

chem
oh ok, thanks :)
March 12, 2009

chem
so chloroethane and HCL?
March 12, 2009

chem
if I had ethane reacting with chlorine would the chlorine remove two hydrogens and form dicholorethane?
March 12, 2009

chem
Oh, I see it now. Thanks so much :)
March 12, 2009

chem
For methyl-2-butene how do I know what the methyl group is coming off of?
March 12, 2009

chem
yes that's where it would go then. Is the C making too many bonds because I count 5? Should I get rid of the hydrogen?

CH3 - CH2 - CH (which has a Br and ethyl group off of it) - CH2 - CH3 - so basically the Br and CH2CH3 shift over to the CH
March 12, 2009

chem
.............Br .............| CH3 - CH2 - CH - CH2 -CH3 .............| ..........CH2CH3 This is what I meant to draw. The Br and ethyl group just shifted over after I clicked post answer. So would this be 3-bromo-3-ethylpentane
March 12, 2009

chem
I meant 3-bromo-3-ethylpentane The bromine and ethyl group are off the third (CH) not the first (CH3)
March 12, 2009

chem
Br | CH3 - CH2 - CH - CH - CH2 -CH3 | CH2CH3 How would I name the structure above? Would it be 3-bromo-3-methylpentane?

Geology
The dew point indicates the amount of moisture in the air. The higher the dew point, the higher the moisture content of the air at a given temperature. Conversely, the dew point of humid air will be higher than the dew point of dry air.

Is this statement correct: When part of sound travelled through water, wavelength and speed of sound would change because since the particles are closer together in water than in air, the speed of sound would increase which in turn would decrease the wavelength according to ...

drwls said that sugar is atomic however aren`t atomic substances supposed to be insoluable?
March 1, 2009

Chem
We were told to attempt to bend the substance which made absolutely no sense it me. So would you say that without the Brinell hardness test you can't exactly figure out the hardness of sugar?
March 1, 2009

Chem
drwls had said that sugar is molecular and I have this chart where it says that moleuclar substances are usually soft. So would you say that sugar is soft? My teacher said that hardness is more like if you can bend the substance and I find that a bit confusing.

I have another question. How would someone check the hardness of sugar? That was one of the objectives in the lab. Would you say that sugar is hard?

Find the minimum/maximum
The question is as followed: y=-3x^2 + 4x This is how I solved it: y=-3x^2 + 4x y= -3 (x^2 + 4/3x) y= -3(x^2+4/3x +4/9) + 4/3 y= -3 (x+2/3)^2 + 4/3 The answer sheet said that x = 2/3 but wouldn't it equal -2/3 because there is a -3 before the bracket?
