    Calculating effects of air resistance on a falling mass

    Calculating effects of air resistance on a ball of mass 0.67kg, being dropped from a height of 4.93m. I have worked out theoretically what time it would take without air resistance using s=ut + 0.5at(squared) however i cannot find an equation that will factor in air resistance. thanks

    Calculating decay constants and half-life

    thanks lol, i do that alot it seems, better brush up on those skills before the exam lol.

    Calculating decay constants and half-life

    now i get 1.4448x10^15 which is still wrong, im so confused. x

    Calculating decay constants and half-life

    oops that should have been 10^23 lol, thanks i'll try that x

    Calculating decay constants and half-life

    A scientist wishes to find the age of a sample of rock. Realising that it contains radioactive potassium, which decays to give a stable form of argon, the scientist started by making the following measurments: decay rate of the potassium in the sample = 0.16Bq mass of potassium in the sample...

    Opinions on determinism

    But at the same time something must help us make our desicsions, possibly the chemicals in our body and if thats the case, our chemicals dont change therefore our choices are already made.

    Opinions on determinism

    yeah, basically do you believe that our path in life is already chosen.

    Opinions on determinism

    I am writing an essay on determinism, i was just wondering what peoples opinions on it are, my arguement is going to be that it is possible, but i would like to include other peoples opinions and reasons. Thanks Steph.
