Homework Statement
Hi- this is actually part of my physics homework, but all I need help with deals strictly with algebra.
This is my equation:
(0.97)(1 + Beta gas (-Ti)) = (1 + Beta steel (-Ti))
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
How do I solve for Ti...

What is the density of radon gas at 0 degrees C and 1 atmosphere?
Homework Equations
PV= nRT
0 C = 273 K
density = mass/volume g/m^3
The Attempt at a Solution
I want density = g/m^3
Below are the units of PV = nRT. I thought that breaking it down...

I don't have a homework question exactly, but I need help with an equation please.
Angular frequency: W= 2 pi/T = 2(pi)(f) f= frequency
And- W = square root of (k/m) k = spring constant m= mass
So, wouldn't T = 2 pi / square root of (k/m) ??

Why 10 degrees? I know all of this relates back to the angle that the path swings out somehow. Would it be the same if I did say, a 45 degree angle (easier to meausre) and then counted 45 cycles and divided by 45? What does the angle have to do with it??

Suppose you were kidnapped and held prisoner by space invaders in a completely isolated room, with nothing but a watch and a pair of shoes (with shoelaces of known length). Explain how you might determine whether this room is on earth or on the moon.

Ok- I guess that makes sense. However, in other contexts I would probably still be confused with the cycles, revolutions, etc... I just can't wrap my head around it- silly I know :shy: I have some more problems to practice with.
Thank you both, chrisk and LP- :smile:
Ok one last question- how exactly do the units work themselves out?
This is what I have:
1.89 x 10^5 rad = 2 pi rad/cycle
To isolate cycle don't I have to multiply by 2 pi on each side? Even then I would be left with 1/cycle? You said to divide by 2 pi rad/ cycle, but then what's left...
