    Two physics questions

    C. Using one of the three laws of projectile motion. It obviously cant be A as it doesn't have Distance in it. It can't be B because that doesn't have time in it and D doesn't even hold acceleration. Therefore C is the right answer you would just need to re-arrange the equation to get a as...

    Basic Electrical Engineering

    I'm just really trying to understand this equation: V = IR I have an example here where someone used it to find the total resistance of their resistor on their circuit. For example. A 12 volt battery connects to a 2 Ohm resistor. How would you calculate the total resistance made by...

    Basic Electrical Engineering

    Homework Statement I'm currently trying to find the total resistance of my resistors in my curcuit I have designed. Homework Equations I'm using the equation V = IR, where V = Potential difference in volts, I = Current in Amps and then there's R... It's a constant of sorts but I...

    Circuit Schematic

    I've currently got an assignment for a basic physics class. The job to be done is that I need to create a simple circuit that holds some use in society. It doesn't need to be too complicated but I've been stuck on finding a decent website that I could get a circuit schematic/build instructions...

    Speed of light

    This depends, is it just a fraction of the speed of light (as obviously nothing can travel at it bar light itself), and for how long? Either way, you can use this formula to equate Proper time to earths time: t = to/sq[1-v^2/c^2 So for example, Bazza jumps in his crazy new spaceship and...

    The Photoelectric Effect.

    Homework Statement Having some problem with this question: The threshold fequency for a material is 5.0*10^14 Hz. Find (a) the work function and (b) the maximum velocity of electrons ejected by radiation of frequency 8.0*10^14 Hz. The mass of an electron is 9.1*10^-31kg. Homework...

    When is suicide justified?

    While I think suicide is the ultimate act of stupidity, I find it morally alright. It's basically just giving up, when you give up you go nowhere but where you left. Suicide is avoiding the future, it's giving up all the possible opportunities and good things that can happen to you. Suicide...

    Projectile Motion of trebuchet

    Homework Statement I'm looking at trebuchets. Basically, a trebuchet shoots a projectile with an initial velocity of 30ms-1 at an angle of 55, 65 and 75 degrees. Friction/Wind resistance do not account. I need to find the maximum height reached, the time the projectile spends in the air...

    Bridge Work

    I'm currently in my final year of highschool, doing physics. We have been given an assingment about bridge structures. Basically, we build a bridge out of spaghetti, test it and discuss it. I'm thinking of things in which I can talk about. I've built an Arch Design Bridge. Mainly due to...

    Human Perception

    Disection of the eye? I do believe that people's perception is different to the next mans, but to some extent. On average I believe we feel, act, hear, smell etc everything different to others, but to a small extent.

    Question about Atheism

    Well, I'm not going to make the obvious "What came before God" statement, cause I'm more than sure you have pondered this yourself. Myself, as an atheist. I beleive in it due to a larger quater of realism in the big bang theory. Personally, its just because I find it hard that a god...

    Is the earth only 6,000 years old?

    Haha, like an atheist on a Christian. Well, judging that he's not extremely bias to the situation (he may though... williing to risk $250G on the topic), wouldn't it just be almost as simple to not prove him wrong, but get him to prove himself wrong? Is there any significant evidence that the...

    Why have kids of your own?

    Personally for 2 reason's. First, being the most popular of choice that of passing on your own gene. More in a sense of leaving a legacy people will come to realise, behold and notice. But if anything, it would be pressure onward from family/friends and generally the way human life is suppose...
