Agree, if you lose 20 people in one fire they are probably crowded into tiny spaces.

m g h = 6 * 9.81 * 12 Joules

commission per CD = .08*12 = .96 so 52.8/.96

**Calculus**

(1/2)x^2+2x at 4 - at 1 = 8+8 - 1/2 -2 = 13.5 assuming by under you mean below the line and above the x axis

**Math**

(b-7)(s-7) = 72 b = s+6 so (s+6-7)(s-7) = 72 (s-1)(s-7) = 72 s^2 - 8 s + 7 = 72 s^2 - 8 s - 65 = 0 (s-13)(s+5) = 0 s = 13 then b = 19

yes, you have the idea. The points on the bar that do not move are the nodes. The sand flies off the rest of the bar.

**Physics**

time = 1/frequency = 1/(2.7*10^9) =(1/2.7)* 10^-9 seconds distance = speed*time = 3*10^8 *(1/2.7)(10^-9) = about 0.1 meter = 10 cm

**Maths**

You need as many equations as unknowns. Here yoou have 3 unknowns and two equations so no unique solution. There are two basic ways: 1, substitution, for example say s = 100 - (c+h) and use that for ss in the next equation so 40[ 100-(c+h) ] +65 c + 2 h = 3279 now you do not ...

average speed across window = 1.3/.22 = 5.91 m/s speed at top of window = Vt speed at bottom of window = Vb in general v = Vi + g t = Vi + 9.81 t so Vb = Vt + .22*9.81 = Vt + 2.16 Vt+Vb = 2 Vt + 2.16 (1/2)(Vt+Vb) = Vt + 1.08 = 5.91 so Vt = 4.83 m/s how far did it drop from a ...

mass times acceleration. Your units are correct and your answer will be in Newtons of force. However m/s^2 not m/s2. The convention online is to write exponents as ^

Agree first two. I think you are right about Paraguay as well, 1811.

y = amount at end of every week after 4 weeks = 1700 + 200 (x-4) so y - 1700 = 200(x-4)

Now this is just like the other one (cos x/sin x)^2 - (1/sin x)^2 = (cos^2 x - 1)/sin^2x = sin^2 x / sin^2x = 1

**Calculus**

This is an odd function so its integral from -1 to +1 will be zero but anyway find average value on that interval that is the integral /(1 - -1)= integral/2 integral = (1/4)x^4 - 8x^2 from -1 to + 1 = 1/4-8 -(1/4)+8 = 0 so where is the function zero? at x = 0 of course I think...

**Physics**

I already did this http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1491155418

**algebra 1**

the van uses 1 gal/20 mi so amount used = x/20 the tank holds V gallons so amount remaining after x miles y = V - x/20 we are given a point on that line 10 = V - 120/20 V = 10 + 6 = 16 gallons so in the end y = 16 - x/20

**Maths**

I am going to guess that your mean: 1/(1-x) + 2/(1+x) multiply tops and bottoms by [(1-x)(1+x)] [(1+x) + 2(1-x) ] /(1-x^2) **** remember a^2-b^2 =(a-b)(a+b) *** = [3 - x]/(1-x^2)

**Physics-Graivty**

F = G m M/r^2 F' = G m 2M/(2r)^2 F'/F = 2/4 =1/2 700* 1/2 = 350 N

**Physics**

100 = V i so i = 100watts/110 volts=about 1 coulomb/second (you use calculator) e = 1.6*10^-19 coulomb so (1/1.6)*10^19 electrons/second so 800 hours = 800*3600 seconds = 8*3.6*10^5 seconds so (8*3.6/1.6)* 10^24 electrons (quite a few)

**11 grade / physics**

5 kg*40cm = m kg *30 cm m = 5(4/3) = 20/3 kg

**Trig**

volumes of similar objects have dimensions proportional to length dimension cubed 800/2700 = 8/27 = 2^3/3^3 = (2/3)^3 so (2/3)15= 10 inches radius

**Physics**

(1/3)^2 = 1/9 so r = 3 re from earth center=19200 subtract re to get above surface so 19200-6400= 12800 km

**statistics**

like permutations = 10!/(10-3)!

**Geometry**

6 in expands to 36 in that would be times 6 10 in expands to 48 in that would be times 4.8 so the 10 inch dimension is limiting and the scale ratio is 4.8 6*4.8 = 28.8 inches so what is used is 28.8 in x 48 in

**Chemistry**

N = 14 g/mol O = 16 g/mol 2 Mols N2O5 = 56+160 = 216 grams 1 mol O2 = 32 grams so 32 grams O2 for each 216 grams N2O5 so (32/216)44.2

**Hey, come on**

been there, done that.

**physics**

initial momentum north = final momentum north so 6,000*5 = 10,000* Vn same for west 4,000*15 = 10,000* Vw speed = s = sqrt(Vn^2+Vw^2) tan angle north of west = Vn/Vw initial Ke=(1/2)[6000*25+4,000*225) final Ke = (1/2)(10,000)s^2

**PHYSICS**

the force is the same in each so add the extensions: mg/k1 + mg/k2

**physics help**

force = mass * centripetal acc = m v^2/r c = 2 pi r = 2 pi * 1.8 v = (c/6.2) meters/second so F = 20 * (c/6.2)^2/1.8 when F = mu * m g, we slip mu = Ac/g= (c/6.2)^2/(1.8*9.81)

**calculus**

Well, supposed to be your words, not mine. If a variable y depends on x as a continuous smooth function y = f(x) and we want to find the rate of change of y as x changes then on a graph, that is the slope of a tangent to the function, change in y / change in x at the point (x,...

**Physics**

dv/dt = 9 - 12 t and v(0)= 0 v = 9 t - 6 t^2 + constant when t = 0, v = 0 so constant = 0 v is radians/sec v = 9 t - 6 t^2 at v = 0 0 = t(9-6t) so v = 0 at t = 0 as we knew and v = 0 at t=9/6 = 3/2 = 1.5 so how far did it go? x is radians x = (9/2) t^2 - (6/3)t^3 + 0 x = (9/2...

**check your wording**

It is probably the minimum speed you mean. The centripetal acceleration must be at least 9.81 m/s^2 on earth or the string will go slack and the ball will fall on your head. Now you have given enough information already to find out. By the way, any old mass m will do v^2/r>...
