    Help! Electricity and work

    Two identical point charges of q = +1.25 x 10-8 C are separated by a distance of 1.10 m. What is the minimum amount of work required by an external force to move them closer together so that they are only 0.60 m apart? I have no idea how to do this. I tried using -q(Vb-Va), but that got me...

    Application of Vectors: Work (calc 3)

    Wow! Take it easy! I wasn`t trying to make fun of you. Geez.. I literally have never seen a problem like that before. How can that be taken as an insult? anyway, there is one more thing to try. Are you sure your calculator is in degrees/radians mode? (for whatever the problem calls for)

    Application of Vectors: Work (calc 3)

    Eh? That`s odd. I`ve never heard of a problem neglecting gravity before. also isn`t (dot) multiplication. NOTE: to a helper who is reading this: I really need help with my topci before 2 hours, please! :confused:

    Application of Vectors: Work (calc 3)

    You forgot about Vectors. Force is a vector. It has X and Y components. Also remember about Mass x Gravity.

    A few questions about water pressure, temp, and sound

    OK. I have done most of them correctly on my own, I need 2 checked and help with one: Check: A sound source emits sounds of frequency 210 Hz that travel through still air at 340 m/s. The source moves away from the stationary listener at 80 m/s. Find the wavelength of the sound waves...

    Need help with 2 problems

    So, the equation: Nf*L/2*sin(90-theta)=Us*Nf*L*sin(theta) Will solve the problem? Making this L/2*cos(theta)=Us*L*sin(theta) then 1/2=Us*tan(theta) then 1/(2*Us)=tan(theta) and finally: arctan(1/(2*Us))=theta? Also, just to be sure, is the answer to: It takes a...

    Need help with 2 problems

    1. OOPS! I`m such an idiot. That was supposed to be the mass. If 460 is repalced with 520, will the problem be correct? 2. I thought I needed to meansure the length from where mg affects the ladder, in the middle. Also I`m having trouble since the only value given is the coefficient of...

    Need help with 2 problems

    1.A 110 kg scaffold is 6.8 m long. It is hanging with two wires, one from each end. A 520 kg box sits 2 m from the left end. What is the tension in the left wire?(g = 9.8 m/s2) For this one I tried using: 6.8 *t=460*9.8*4.8+110*9.8*6.8/2 and solving for t, but I for some reaosn get...
