Find the distance between (–3, –2) and (1, 4). (1, 4) - (–3, –2) = (1- -3, 4 - -2) = (1+3, 4+2) = (4,6) |(4,6)| = sqrt[4^2 + 6^2] = sqrt[52] = 2 sqrt[13]

A pendulum clock that works perfectly on Earth is taken to the Moon. (a)Does it run fast or slow there? (b) if the clock is started at 12:00:00 am, what will it read after one Earth day(24hrs)? Assume that the free-fall acceleration on the Moon is 1.63 m/s^2 I tried to do this...

Given that x=Acos(wt) is a sinusoidal function of time, show that v(velocity) and a(acceleration) are also sinusoidal functions of time. (HINT: Use v=square root [(k/m)(A^2-x^2)] and a=(-k/m)X The hint tells you what to do: put Acoswt for X. A second way which is easier is in ...
