    Monkey Business Please Confirm!

    Ahh i get it. Ok im off on that part, but it works since the object is being pull downed towards the earth so it would add to the tension. Anywhere besides straight down though, my calculations would be totally off. Except at the exact top of the circle, where the tension would be F(c) minus the...

    Monkey Business Please Confirm!

    I think part 2 of the problem is right, since it doesnt deal with the tension. I am still confused about part 3 though also. According to my book: At the bottom of a vertical circle: F(centripital)=F(normal)-mg I assume that F(normal)=T (thats what i always thought, but im not sure)...

    Monkey Business Please Confirm!

    ok first i solved the x equation to be: T(a)=T(b)(cosB/CosA) Then i substituted it into the y equation. I moved mg to the right side and factored out T(b) from the numbers. Then i solved for what was left on the right side (the sines and cosines) to recieve T(b)=42.4785N Does this sound...

    Angular speed prob

    Show me some work, and then ill help you. Or atleast convince yourself of the concept. I'd be happy to help, but i dont want to do it for you.

    What a notice is that angles of A and B are complements, so if i messed up using sine and cosine i would have done the opposite vine. I cant figure out if I'm using the right equations and solving them the right way.

    Work Problem-Physics

    Here is the problem: A 10.0-kg crate is pulled up a rought 20 degree incline by a 100-N force parallel to the incline. The initial speed of the crate is 1.5 m/s, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.40. The crate is pulled a distance of 5.00m. Determine the work done by the: 1...

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    After i did that equations, and the plugged them into the third equation, I got the value of 2.15x10^-14, does this seem about right or did i get off somewhere?

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    Ohhh, so would u first solve Oy for T, then sub T into Ox and solve for F then take the absolute value? Then when u solve for the next equation, are the two vacuum permitivites both 8.85.10^12? Ive never heard of this concept before.

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    ohhh ok i get it. Now to solve for F electric can u just use F=ma? And then for the two vacuum permitivities, are they the same number, or are they different?

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    Ok i understand every part to the problem except the 4Pi and the things after it up until the parentheses. What do those mean, and where did they come from.

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    I found this equation online, does it work? http://homepage.smc.edu/physsci/dept/Physics/P22Hwk/EField.htm [Broken] Go there, its on number 5. Its the equation where q=2Lsin...... If so, how is it derived?

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    Newton's second law says F=ma, so in equalibrium that means that the sphere has to exert an opposite force for every force it encounters. The thing is i have no clue how to solve for them. I think i can solve for the attraction to earth, but i have no idea how to solve for the tension or...

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    Well, first i used the equation F=k(q1q2)/(r^2), but I cant figure out the value that the F would be. I used F=ma and try to find it that way, but the numbers dont seem to work out when i plug them into the equation. For q1 and q2 i just combined those, and then at the end after i solved for...

    Electric Fields of Like Charges

    Can anybody help me with this problem? Two small metallic spheres, each with a mass of .20g, are suspended as pendulums by light strings from a common point. They are given the same electric charge, and the two come to equilibrium when each string is at an angle of 5 degrees with the...
