    Critical angle homework

    Ya i knw u can find the critical angle but i got the critical angle of diamond and n for water. I want to knw how to solve the angle between diamond and water.

    Critical angle homework

    Well the question is 2 sentences. Critical angle of diamond is n=2.42. Water n=1.33. Find the angle of incidence. My textbook says the angle is 33 degrees but i do not knw how it arrived at that answer.

    Conservation of Energy and potential energy problem

    well i did 1.5X10^7 J=1/2mv square 1.5X10^7=(1/2)(40000)v square v square=750 v=27 m/s. Well to be more precise its 2.1189600X10^7-5.886000X10^6=1.5303600X10^7 1.5303600X10^7/0.15(40000)v square v square=765.18 v=27.6 rounded to 28 m/s. So according to that method. I subtract...

    Conservation of Energy and potential energy problem

    I found v=27 for B but i cant find the kinetic energy for C and D. As u told me i need EGa-EGb=EKb but i dun seem to have the correct answer for C and D.

    Conservation of Energy and potential energy problem

    So your saying i have that m=4.0X10^4. I got the potential energy for A which is 2.1X10^7, B which is 5.9X10^6, C which is 1.8X10^7, and D which is 1.4X10^7 and B's kinetic energy is 2.1X10^7-5.9X10^6=1.5X10^7. So how do i find the kinetic energy for C, D, and E. I also need to find the speed...

    Conservation of Energy and potential energy problem

    Oh alrite i found the answer of 1.5 X 10 to the power of 7. From A subtract B using the Ek=Eg formula. Now i need to find the speed for points B, C, and D.
