Homework Statement
Hi- this is actually part of my physics homework, but all I need help with deals strictly with algebra.
This is my equation:
(0.97)(1 + Beta gas (-Ti)) = (1 + Beta steel (-Ti))
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
How do I solve for Ti...

Homework Statement
What is the density of radon gas at 0 degrees C and 1 atmosphere?
Homework Equations
PV= nRT
0 C = 273 K
density = mass/volume g/m^3
The Attempt at a Solution
I want density = g/m^3
Below are the units of PV = nRT. I thought that breaking it down...

I don't have a homework question exactly, but I need help with an equation please.
Angular frequency: W= 2 pi/T = 2(pi)(f) f= frequency
And- W = square root of (k/m) k = spring constant m= mass
So, wouldn't T = 2 pi / square root of (k/m) ??
