I'm just a bit confused about identifying the capacitors in this circuit as connected in parallel or series.
The Attempt at a Solution
The solution is parallel, though I am unsure why.
A cylinder contains 1 L of air at 10 atm and 298 K.
Knowing that air is composed of 79% N2 and 21% O2 by VOLUME, calculate the initial partial pressure for both.
Ideal Gas Law: PV = nRT
Mole Fraction: yi = moles of i / total moles
Partial Pressure: Pi...
We collected the following data from a virtual lab with two pucks having an elastic collision.
m1 = 1 kg
m2 = 2 kg
v1 = 0
v2 = .2 m/s [318 degrees]
we have to find the final velocities for the pucks... I was trying this out but it seems that there are too many...
A falling rock gains momentum as its speed increases. Does this observation contradict the law of conservation of momentum. Explain.
Answer in the textbook:
This observation does not contradict the law of conservation of momentum. The momentum of the earth increases...
Can the normal force on an object ever do work on the object? Explain your answer.
The answer in the textbook is:
The normal force can do work on an object. For example, when you jump, you push down on the ground and the normal
force pushes up on you and...
