physical science
I see, thanks, you had me pretty puzzled :)

physical science
You did 4 right but missed 2? That makes no sense.

physics
Force * time = impulse or change of momentum a) so Impulse = 970*0.0088 b) As I said, impulse IS change of momentum c) initial momentum = -.145*32 (calling negative speed from pitcher to batter, positive from batter to center field) The change of momentum is up in parts a and ...

BSc in Physics, Ocean Engineering professor, retired. You are welcome. and error percent = 100 (ball energy/total energy)

physics
1100 v + 6.2 * 190 = 0 energy of ball = (1/2)(6.2)(190)^2 energy of cannon = (1/2)(1100) v^2 total = sum of those percent = 100 (ball energy/cannon energy) No, I do not think it is confusing.

physics
force = rate of change of momentum change of momentum of vehicle + change of momentum of fuel = 0 in one second: 10,000 (change of vehicle speed) = 1.4*240 = 336 kg m/s so change of vehicle momentum per second =336 kg m/s^2 = Force (answer #1) acceleration = change of vehicle ...

LOL, I think she just wants the part you see from above If D is 14 then the slimy area has diameter of 12 because you take and inch off each side. so area of a circle = pi d^2/4 (pi/4)(14^2-12^2) sure enough 40.8

chemistry electron dots
H has one electron in the first orbital ring. Unlike the elements further down than H and He, those two elements can only fit 2 electrons in that first shell. So an H atom would have one dot anywhere in the shell. When H forms a Covalent bond there are two dots in that shell, ...

Physics question
Initial momentum of A = .3*4 = 1.2 kg m/s Final momentum of B = .8*1.8 = 1.44 kg m/s change of momentum of B = 1.44-0 = 1.44 so Force on B = change in momentum/time = 1.44 kg m/s / .2 s = 7.2 Newtons Now final velocity of A from conservation of momentum 1.2 = 1.44 + .3 Va so ...

By the way km/h is a perfectly good way to specify speed. However once you get into calculating accelerations and stuff you will need to convert that to meters/second
