Finding the slope and y-intercept for x = -9, I beleive is (-9, 0) and the slope is undefined. However what if you are looking for the slope and y-intercept of y = x? Hmmm. It is a vertical line, so you are right, slope is undefined. Now y=x is easy Rewrite it as y= 1*x + 0 ...

I keep on getting the wrong answer I don't know if there is even static friciton in this problem in the begining before the rope snaps or not and if so if it must be equal to the Mu they give because there is only one but you can't have the same values for both coffecients of ...

At a point on the ground 50 feet from the foot of a tree, the angle of elevation to the top of the tree is 53°. Find the height of the tree to the nearest foot. I got 50xtan53 = 66.35 nearest foot ? would I use tan or sin since I'm finding the foot of the tree

When baseball players throw the ball in from the outfield, they sometimes allow it to take one bounce before it reaches the infield on the theory that the ball arrives sooner that way. Suppose the angle at which a bounced ball leaves the ground is the same as the angle at ...

A skier going down a hill accelerates from 5.15m/s to17.3m/s over a period of 11.7 seconds. For all calculations, you may neglect drag. If the skier’s total mass is 57.3kg, what is the average force applied by the snow against the skis to bring her to a stop? would it be: f=(...
