If one has the mean and standard deviation of a population, is it possible to calculate (or estimate) the mean and standard deviation of the inverse population (ie. 1/(every value in the original population)?
Ahh yes I see, thank you! However, does 20dB not correspond to a factor of 10, and 40dB to a factor of 100, given the fact it is dB SPL, and hence 20logx as opposed to 10logx?
Also, the next part of the question asks - if the sound pressure of D is four times that of E, by how many decibels do...
1. What is the total sound pressure levels of two identical tones, each 88db SPL, when added together?
For this question, using the equation dB SPL = 20log(P/2*10^-5), I found the value of P where dB SPL = 88, then doubled this value, then fed it back into the equation, to obtain a value of...
Thanks for the reply. If 40mV was the total battery voltage, and there are 40mV across the capacitor, does that mean that there are 0v across the resistor? My physics is really rusty ever since I became a medic..!
See file below:
This is for a biological membrane, but the principles are the same. I am asked what the value of the initial voltage, Vt is.The options are:
What was the value of the initial voltage, Vt?
A. +58 mV...
I was wondering what the changes would be if the a) the lung compliance decreased and b) the chest wall compliance decreased. Am i correct in thinking both would result in a fall in FRC, or would that only be for a fall in lung compliance? In addition, what would happen to other lung volumes...
ah okay; i see it now. Thanks so much. Yes, there was an accompanying chest radiograph which showed the gas clearly, but i couldn't see it in the abdomen which is why i only asked about this image. Thanks you!
Hmm I see your point. I made sure no identifiers etc were present but I guess i won't do it again!
I see the inferior margin of the liver, but I am still unsure of where the falciform ligament is;is it the line which is crossing from the right over to the left in the midline at the top of the...
Yes, I am a first year medical student. No, I would certainly not be hacking patients records or anything! The url is for "image shack", a popular image hosting website.
Hmm yes I know the falciform ligament is the ligament attached the liver to the anterior abdominal wall and the diaphragm...
I was struggling with the radiograph below;I am told that "the plain abdominal X-Ray shows the falciform ligament outlined by gas. This is the appearance of extraluminal gas."
However I am unable to see this; is it possible...
I was struggling with interpreting the following pedigree diagram:
I can see from the diagram that only females seem to be capable of transmitting the disease - not males - this lead me to believe it is X-linked. In...
i was undertaking a question regarding a patient who had a mutation in their mitochondria, and hence experienced lethargy. A subsequent test of his mitochondria found his mitochondria to have an increased state 4 respiration, but a normal state 3 respiration.
In order to explain this, I would...
I started to reply about how i still didnt understand, but then as I tried explaining why I saw the reason! Although the polymerase may go beyond the region of interest, on the next cycle, the primer will only bind to the start of the region of interest, and so after a few cycles, youll be left...
I have a question regarding PCR which I was unable to find the answer to (maybe because its obvious and I am just not thinking of the reason!) How is PCR terminated? For instance, say you wish to amplify a 2kb length of dna, how does one ensure that just this 2kb region is amplified as opposed...
I was struggling with the following question:
In a frog heart preparation that is beating spontaneously, the longest part of the cardiac cycle involves:
A. Contraction of the atria
B. Contraction of the ventricle
C. Relaxation of the ventricle
D. Electrical conduction through the...
i was struggling with the following question:
Partial occlusion of one renal artery is likely to result in which ONE of the following:
A. Increased renin secretion from both kidneys
B. Increased sodium excretion
C. Constriction of the efferent arteriole of the other kidney
D. Dilatation of the...
In southern blotting, how are the DNA bands visualised? i have read two conflicting methods; one using ethidium bromide stain, and one using DNA probes. Can either be used, or are the two distinct methods used in different circumstances?
I was undertaking the following problem:
A man takes out a 5 year loan for $10,000 with an annual interest of 8% with equal annual repayments. How much must be paid each year?
I'm stuck as to where and how to start. Is there are particular equation which I should be using?
Would I say y = 0.5ft^2 - (particular solution of the equation), and then find when dy/dt = 0, to find the time at which y is a max, and then subv this time back in, to find ymax, and then use the tension equation?
For the tension, you forgot to divide by the natural length = a, and hence the a seems to fit! Thanks a lot for the help though, it makes sense now! How would I do the last part of finding the maximum tension in the spring?
Can someone please help me with the problem above? I am unable to start it. Clearly, using the constant acceleration "suvat" equations, 0.5ft^2 is the distance obtainined, however I am unable to proceed.
Thanks in advance.
A closed container C consists of a thin uniform hollow hemispherical bowl of radius a, together with a lid. The lid is a thin uniform circular disc, also of radius a. The centre O of the disc coincides with the centre of the hemispherical bowl. The bowl and its lid are made of the same material...
My question is, why does the dc voltage vary with time in this way? Ply it is something to do with the diode allowing current to flow when it has 0.7V or more across it, allowing the capacitor to charge, and when the voltage...
I do not understand how circular motion can be occurring a point B - surely at B, the reaction force occurs in a direction away from O. Therefore, there is no resultant force that can be acting towards O, since the weight is...
process A: isothermal compression at low temperature with an input of work of 83 J

See the image above. I am able to get to (where x = distance):
x = (1/2k)ln((g - k(V^2)(tan a )^2)/(g - kv^2))
If you let v = 0, and then multiply by mg, you find potential energy gained presumably - I don't understand why the...
