    Particle in a Box

    I got the answer now, but by changing my calculator to radians when calculating sin(2n∏x/L). Am I suppose to use radian instead of degrees?

    Absorbance of a solution

    Not sure if correct but heres what I did to find the concentration. 5.49 ppm = 5.49 micrograms/mL = 0.00549 grams/L 0.00549 grams/L /(55.845 grams/mole) = 0.000106 M 0.000106 M * 5 mL / 50 mL = 0.0000106 M EDIT : Also I just realized that the molar absorptivity of FeSCN is not given in the...

    Line Integral

    Honestly, I have no idea what to do, but here what I did. From (0,0) to (2,1) r(t) = (1-t)<0,0> + t<2,1> r(t) = <2t,t> x=2t y=t I found that the integral is from 0 to 1. dx/dt = 2 dy/dt = 1 ∫(x+2y)dx+(x^2)dy Then I set x as 2t and y as t into the equation...

    Centripetal force vs period

    Homework Statement When plotting the centripetal force vs period graph, what goes on the x-axis and y-axis? I thought that since centripetal force does not depend on period, it goes on the x-axis, but now I'm not too sure. It also says plot Plot Fc as a function of T. Homework Equations...

    Analytical Chemistry - Systematic Treatment of Equilibrum

    Hey Borek, I wrote out all the formulas. My question now is what exactly am I solving for? Am I suppose to solve for all the concentrations? [Ag+], [C2O4(2-)], [HC2O4-] and [H2C2O4]? Also how am I suppose to solve for Ag+? Is it 5.4E-12 = [2x]^2 [x]?
