    Programs What are my options with a 2.54 physics major GPA?

    @Student100 Not really, sadly my GPA won't oscillate much at this point even if i get straight A's, and that is what I will graduate with. But to answer your question, I think I'll do better because when i got into college I came with no knowledge of how college was going to be. I got accepted...

    Find the displacement.

    Never mind what i was doing was wrong i was subtracting .18-90 and the sine of that time 0.2m is .199m but what hypnosam is doing seems right I did y= 0.2sin[0.18(0)+90(0)-pi/4] but i just don't know how he got 0.707 when inmy calculator i get 0.013 for sin(-pi/4) wth.

    How much heat is released from water into ice.

    OK this is what I'm doing 1. cool to freezing point q=(.250kg)(4186J/kgK)(273K-283K)=-1.046*10^4J 2.Freeze MLf=(.250)(3.33*10^5)=8.32*10^4 J 3.Cool to final temp Q= (.250kg)(2090j/kgK)(-283K-273K)=-2.90510*10^5 so when i sum up Q1+mLf+Q2= -2.177*10^5 J Like seriously what am i doing wrong?
