    I do not understand Variable density

    Hey forum I need to ask for a link to a page for Variable density or preferably an explanation from someone who can describe it simply. I am trying to teach myself about the function of Qubits and have run into probability density functions and cannot find a good reference on what exactly...

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    ok...Thank you for the help I appreciate it.

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    and 1.37s is the time it took to go up and down

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    well 1.37s is all that I was given in which I am suppose to use to find out the Launch velocity of the cork.

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    well I was assuming that the total distance would be 9.2m to travel the full parabola or 4.6m to get to maximum height I was getting there through my own weird means. I tend to take unorthodox methods to get to answers. I just want to know if it took a cork 1.37s to go up and down if the...

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    jeeze i should re-read what I post. The time i presented is the time the cork took to travel vertically up and down and I am looking for the launch velocity of the cork. I used d=1/2at^2 equation so that I could find the full distance that it traveled I just derived it from d=1/2at^2+vt if that...

    Verticle launch velocity given only time.

    Homework Statement you are given the time it takes for a cork to be launched up vertically which is 1.37s Homework Equations d=1/2at^2+vt The Attempt at a Solution d=1/2(9.8)(1.37)^2 d=9.2m Because I wanted the height of the parabola I devided both the time and the distance by 2...

    Is there an indent when standing on a solid surface?

    Does anyone know for sure that when standing in a single spot (for a better idea we will say on a block of steel) that there is a microscopic indent (not permanent) on the steel block. For more elaboration I see it as the same aspect as walking on a plank of wood and it will bend due to your...

    Information on Higgs?

    What is the "standard model" you guys mentioned?

    Information on Higgs?

    I cannot tell you how reliable the information of this website is due to the fact that it is my only source of information on science news but "Phys.org" just posted something about the Higgs boson.

    What should I study to be an EE or ME?

    I seem to be at a stalemate. I have an interest in the workings of all things, I enjoy getting my hands dirty and getting hands-on with my job. I enjoy tinkering and designing (using the word lightly) things for fun, also an interest in circuits and the works. I am trying to figure out...

    Engineering Guidance on choosing electrical or mechanical engineer

    I seem to be at a stalemate. I have an interest in the workings of all things, I enjoy getting my hands dirty and getting hands-on with my job and designing new things which mechanical engineering gives more opportunity for (I understand somewhat that they have other people to do that for...
