    Dispersion by diffraction grating

    That's the equation I'm used to. If we assume that the angle is small then sintheta=y/L dsintheta=m*wavelength d(y/L)=m*wavelength m*wavelength*L/(d)=y ? I don't know what's wrong with the equation. For the units I coverted everything to cm because 1/7300=d in cm.

    Induced emf at a specific time

    I plugged in -36.12 but it's still wrong. Can we have a negative voltage?

    Voltage experience by the bird

    I thought that was the equation for voltage loss. Is it not?

    Voltage experience by the bird

    Ok so I got it by using voltage loss=amps*wire resitance/meter*distance Usually this equation is voltage loss=amps*wire resitance/meter*distance*2 wires Why was it not necessary to multiply the answer by 2 in this case?

    Time an object takes to oscillate

    Homework Statement An object in SHM oscillates with a period of 5.73 s and an amplitude of 10.47 cm. How long does the object take to move from x=0 cm to x=5.78 cm? Homework Equations x=Acos(wt+ro) The Attempt at a Solution I solved for ro which was pi/2 when x=o and t=o. Then...

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    The question has several parts and it's asking me for the phase at t=.5s. I used the same formula but it's wrong. Could you please let me know what's wrong? thank you.

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    I got the correct answer for the phase constant but I'm trying the phase for t=.5s. Sorry for the confusion.

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    ok, so for t=.5s I get -102.115 but that's wrong. All I did is wt+constant(-103.48). But that's wrong for some reason. Does the constant change at that time?

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    Also, in this case, is angular speed the same as velocity? If I wanted to find the phase at t=0 s would I just need to use wt+ro, w being the velocity?

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    is it because it's negative and the distance is negative?

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    yeah, I tried that as well which was 76.4751. Then I minus it from 180 so it's 103.525 but that's wrong.

    Amplitude problem

    I got it. For some reason the answer was -.042 when the calculator was in radian. do you know why I have to put the calculator in radians? I have a test tomorrow and I would not have gotten this answer right.

    Finding Phase Constant and air-track glider

    I minus that by 180 so it's 107 but that's still wrong. What do you think is wrong?
