**Physics**

When most people are asked what makes rockets lift off they say it's caused by the push of the exploding fuel against the ground. Explain why this is wrong. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That's from Newton, I think, but it may have been ...

**Chemistry**

What is the chemical equation for the combustion reaction between methanol and air? CH4 + O2 ==> CO2 + H2O. All hydrocarbons produce CO2 and H2O when they are combusted in air. The above equation isn't balanced. I assume you can do that? If not, ask OR take a shot at it...

Find the sum of two numbers whose sum is 70 and whose product is as large as possible. Ok i got that one equation is y = 70 - x...but how do I show an equation for a product which is as large as possible. The product is P = x (70 - x), where x is one of the two numbers. Set dP...

**Analytical Proof**

The Theorum of Apollonius states in triangle ABC, if M is the midpoint of BC, then AB^2 + AC^2 = 2AM^2 + 2MC^2. Prove this theorum using analytic methods. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=Theorem+of+Apollonius+proof&spell=1

**Geometry and Algebra**

AB is a diameter of a circle with centre O. P is on BA extended, and PT is tangent to the circle. Use the corollary to the Intersecting Secants Property to prove that PT is perpendicular to OT. Here is the diagram (Without the dashes in the "com" and periods instead ...

A clerk pushes a filing cabinet of mass 22.0 kg accross the floor by exerting a horizontal force of magnitude 98 N. The magnitude of the force of kinetic friction acting on the cabinet is 87 N. The cabinet starts from rest. Use the law of conservation of energy to determine ...

**Pre-Algebra**

Solving it would give u x = -4...but I am not sure how you would graph that. You see, a linear inequality is an inequality that has one of the following four forms: Ax + By < C Ax + By > C Ax + By < C Ax + By > C PLZ!Somebody tell me the answer! PLZZZ! umm,, It ...

**Geometry and Discrete Mathematics (Proofs)**

Observe that the last two digits of 7^2 are 49, the last two digits of 7^3 are 43, the last two digits of 7^4 are 01, and the last two digits of 7^5 are 07. Prove that the last two digits of 7^201 are 07. 7^2 = ...49 7^3 = ...43 7^4 = ...01 7^5 = ...07 7^201 = ...07 Break 201 ...
