On a sunny day in an estuary, the surface irradiance is 1.6*10^17 photons cm^-2 s^-1. What is k if the irradiance is 7.3*10^13 photons cm^-1 s^-1 at 16 m depth? At a spot in the ocean, the surface irradiance is 7.8*10^16 photons and k=.14 m^-1. At what depth does the euphotic ...

Dynamics
The acceleration of a perticle as it moves along a straight line is geven by a=(2t-1) m/s2. If x=1m and v=2m/s when t=0s, determine the particle's velocity and position when t=6s. Also, determine the total distance the particle travels during this time period.

A baseball player slams a fastball towards left field. The ball is hit 1.00 m above the plate at an initial velocity of 3.0 m/s at a 30 degree angle above the horizontal. The left field wall is 113 m away and is 3.00 m high. Is this a home run shot or not?.

The battleship Massachusetts' 16" guns could fire a 1-ton shell with an initial velocity of 800m/s. If it fired its guns at an angle of 45 degrees above horizontal, how high and how far would the shells travel? I'm pretty sure that I need to use the Pythagorean Theorem, but I'...
