    Proof using Gauss' Law

    A = 2(pi)rL E[2(pi)rL] = Q/ε E = Q/ε[2(pi)rL] E = λ/2(pi)εr Is this correct?

    The Internal Energy of Neon Gas

    So, d = P X MM/RT d = (0.7 atm)(20 g/mol)/(8.31 J/mol*K)(200 K) d= 0.008423586 2 L * 0.008423586 = 1.684717208E-5 kg KE = 1/2(1.68E-5)(499.227 m/s)^2 = 2.09 J (WRONG ANSWER) AM I USING THE WRONG UNITS OR DID I DO A MATH ERROR???

    Car Tire Pressure

    If you divide: 57.2 psi/0.81 = 70.6 psi ALSO NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER! The right answer is 55.8986 psi, so the pressure does get smaller.

    Rolling Cylinders

    well then: y = (1/2)(9.8)(0.368)^2 y = 0.66 m BUT this answer is wrong! The answer is 0.25 m. Am I using the right acceleration and time?
  19. P

    Rolling Cylinders

    I still don't know which equation to use! Is it: v = -1/2gt t = 0.368 and then what? or am I still off?

    A Spinning Top and Rotation Dynamics

    The only equation I can think of is: w^2 = wi^2 + 2(alpha)(theta) so: w^2 = 2(5570 rad/s2)(.80) w = 94.4 rad/s BUT that is not the right answer!
