A large water tank is 18m above the ground. Suppose a pipe with a diameter of 8cm is connected to the tank and leads down to the ground. How fast does the water rush of the piper at ground level? Assume that the tank is open to the atmosphere.
Jen and Heather went to lunch. When the bill came, Jen discovered that she only had $8. Luckily, Heather had enough money to pay the other part, 3/5 of the bill. How much did Heather pay? How much was the total bill? I'm having a hard time understanding the steps in gettin...
wave speed: the violin is a four stringed instrument tuned so that the ratio of the frequencies of adjacent strings is 3:2. (This is the ratio when taken as high frequency to lower frequency.) If the diameter of E string (the highest frequency) on a violin is 0.25 mm, find the...
a cylinder that is 20 cm tall is filled with water. If a hole is made in the side of the cylinder, 5cm below the top level, how far from the base of the cylinder will the stream land? Assume that the cylinder is large enough so that the level of the water in the cylinder does ...
A block of wood will sink 10 cm in freshwater. How far will it sink in seawater. The specific gravity of seawater is 1.025. I'm confused as to how to approach to problem
why is work done during the rise= mgh directly?
(a) a spherically shaped buoy is made from wood, which has a specific gravity of 0.6. find the acceleration of the buoy when released from rest at the bottom of a freshwater lake. (b) if the buoy starts out 10 m below the surface of the water, determine the height above the wa...
If 4.83 mL of an unknown gas effuses through a hole in a plate in the same time it takes 9.23 mL of argon, Ar, to effuse through the same hole under the same conditions, what is the molecular weight of the unknown gas?
A sample of natural gas is 85.2% methane, CH4, and 14.8% ethane, C2H6, by mass. What is the density of this gas mixture at 18.0°C and 771 mmHg? Assume ideal gas behavior.
