    Significant figures

    What is the number 227.32 related to? if you measured it your significant figures would be related to the accuracy of the measuring instrument. If it was from a question the i would just use the amount of significant figures that was used in the numbers in the question.

    Determining values of resistance, voltage, and current throught a circuit

    Firstly, with the battery the smaller line (on the left) is negative, the other is positive. You should be able to work out which side of the V is negative and which is positive from that. The A is just showing that there is 1.5amps flowing through the circuit at that point. That's the best i...

    3 mass, 2 pulleys help please

    I will leave this to someone who has more of an idea of what they are doing, the only thing i can see is that you have wrote down the angle as 30 degrees on the diagram when it says 35 degrees in the box underneath. Other then that I'm at as much of a loss as you are.

    Basic speed/time/distance equation

    I have no idea. now we have 2 variables to try and solve. once the ? is known then the rest is simple enough. As we basically have d/s + d/s and we know the speeds, i only need to find the distance she has to run at 7.8m/s as you said. so she runs x/10km at 3.7ms per second she then needs to...

    Basic speed/time/distance equation

    ok so we so 2703 + 1282.05 = 3985.05s then d = s / t d = 0.474 /3985.05s d= 10000-9962.6 d= 37.4m from the finish? that doesn't sound right sorry i havn't done any sort of equations in a long time

    Basic speed/time/distance equation

    Ok then i didn't think it was going to be quite that easy but couldn't think of any other way to do it. So the equation should look something like t= (2702.702s - 2400s)*7.8m/s or is that basically making the same mistake still?

    Basic speed/time/distance equation

    Homework Statement A runner is planning for a 10km race. She can maintain a steady speed of 3.7 m/s for as much time as needed before ending the race with a 7.8 m/s sprint. If she wants to finish in 40min or less, how far from the finish should she begin to sprint? Homework Equations S =...

    Average volume gained each day

    Homework Statement If the child's birth mass is 3.3 kg, birth rate =1.2×10−2 kg/d (baby gains that amount each day) A child is born after 39 weeks in its mother's womb. Assuming the fetal density is 1020 kg/m^3, what is the average volume gained each day? Homework Equations The...
