    This magnet question confounds me

    Homework Statement Today, my teacher gave us some practice AP multiple choice and my friend and I were debating between answer choices H and J (changed from A and B to remove any confusion) the question as i remember it: blah blah... B-field into the page, constant velocity v, radius R and...

    Need help with gauss law and charged ring AP Physics FRQ

    Homework Statement 1. 2. Homework Equations ∫E.dA = Qenc/\epsilon_{o} \lambda=Q/L \rho=Q/V V= q/4πε_{o}r The Attempt at a Solution these types of problems i suck at, i dont know how to do these at all independently, and is there any difference in question 2 if there is an insulator or...

    How can I be really fast at maths?

    im no expert at this stuff but when i was practicing for the SAT i would take off a small chunk of time from the allotted time. for example, if a section is 25 mins 24 questions, i would give myself 20 mins for 24 questions. overtime i was able to get faster. on test day, i finished the...

    How do/did you study Physics?

    this is how i do it 1. try to solve the problem as long as possible without going to the solution 2. go ask somebody for helping hints and try again 3. look at solution understand what is going on 4. try the problem again

    Schools What should i expect in physics in college?

    First off, sorry for wrong location of post. I am wondering what kind of stuff you guys do in college physics. Is it similar to AP Physics? What should I expect in the Biochemistry Major, I was looking at the suggested courses on my future college's website and I think it was something like Gen...

    Circuit help - resistors and batteries in a network

    1) -1.5-3(i1)-2.5(i2)=0 2) -2.5(i2)-3(i3)=0 3) -1.5-3(i1)-3(i3)=0 1) 1.5=-3(i1)-2.5(i2) 2)-2.5(i2)=3(i3) 3)1.5=-3(i1)-3(i3)

    Circuit help - resistors and batteries in a network

    ok i just redid my loops im not sure what is going wrong 1) 2-1.5(i1)-2.5(i2)-3.5-1.5(i1)=0 2) 3.5-2.5(i2)-1.5(i3)-3.5-1.5(i3)=0 3) 2-1.5(i1)-1.5(i3)-3.5-1.5(i3)-1.5(i1)=0 1) -.6-1.2(i1)=i2 2)-.833(i2)=i3 3)-.5-i3=i1

    Circuit help - resistors and batteries in a network

    ok so i set up 3 loops and after simplifying i get: Loop 1(the square on the left):-.6+1.2(i1)= i2 Loop 2(right square): 2.5(i2)=1.5(i3) loop 3(the whole rectangle): 1.5=-3(i1+i2) and that i1 = i2+i3

    Electric potential of tiny spheres question

    Homework Statement Two tiny metal spheres A and B of mass mA = 3.40 g and mB = 3.90 g have equal positive charges q = 4.50 µC. The spheres are connected by a massless nonconducting string of length d = 1.00 m, a distance that is much greater than the radii of the spheres. (a) What is the...
