How to Generate Pythagorean Triples using an Odd Number 1. Start with an odd number, e.g. 3. Then the square of 3 can be expressed as the sum of two consecutive numbers, i.e. 32 = 9 = 4 + 5. Therefore the Pythagorean Triples are {3, 4, 5} since 32 + 42 = 52. Generate another ...

A wooden block with mass 0.26{\rm kg} rests on a horizontal table, connected to a string that hangs vertically over a friction-less pulley on the table's edge. From the other end of the string hangs a 0.20{\rm kg} mass. What minimum coefficient of static friction \mu _{{\rm s...

Block 1, with mass m1 and speed 4.5 m/s, slides along an x axis on a frictionless floor and then undergoes a one-dimensional elastic collision with stationary block 2, with mass m2 = 0.41m1. The two blocks then slide into a region where the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0...
