A "seconds pendulum" is one that moves through its equilibrium position once each second. (The period of the pendulum is precisely 2.000 s.) The length of a seconds pendulum is 0.9928 m at Tokyo and 0.9943 m at Cambridge, England. What is the ratio of the

2. physic

An air column in a glass tube is open at one end and closed at the other by a movable piston. The air in the tube is warmed above room temperature, and a 350 Hz tuning fork is held at the open end. Resonance is heard when the piston is at a distance d1 =

In certain ranges of a piano keyboard, more than one string is tuned to the same note to provide extra loudness. For example, the note at 110 Hz has two strings at this frequency. If one string slips from its normal tension of 550 N to 520.00 N, what beat

4. microeconomic

Consider a monopolist facing a demand curve given by P = 20 – q, where P is the market price and q is the quantity sold. The monopolist's marginal costs are MC = 2 per unit and a fixed cost of \$20. What is the monopolist's profit it is charges a uniform
