    Anybody know where I can find more logic problems?

    I would like to practice logic thinking more. The sort of problems I'm talking about are like this: Define two constraints, which relates the variables x and y to v such that if either x or y is 1 then v is forced to be 1. Where the answer is then: x ≤ v y ≤ v Does anybody know where I can...

    Do pretty girls not care about a guy's education?

    Yeah but what if you suddenly get bad at playing Smash Bros. and no longer cna win tournament prizes, then you have no income and no education to rely on? Wouldn't it be more wise for girls to choose a guy that has a steady income? A guy who is actually smart?

    Do pretty girls not care about a guy's education?

    My mom always used to tell me that girls are attracted to guys with a good education but now I'm thinking it was something she just told to get me to study. I've noticed that I have no more luck with girls than my friends who don't have an education past high school and that in many cases, guys...

    Is the mass flow rate in a regenerative vapor power cycle constant?

    Does the mass flow rate differ depending on whether it's after the feedwater heaters or before the turbines or is it just constant throughout the entire system?

    Is there a guide for the properties of ideal gasses?

    Oh, I see. Actually when I looked at my notes I found a place where it says the change in pressure is zero. It's just a lot of information to keep up with. Thanks! :)

    Is there a guide for the properties of ideal gasses?

    What I'm asking for is if there is a guide for the properties of processes like isochoric, isobaric, isothermal and adiabatic. For instance, a comprehensive guide that tells me that the pressure in an isobaric expansion is the same before and after, etc. If there isn't, does anybody have any...

    Figuring out the potential energy

    Ahh, I mixed them up. Ok I changed the drawing so now d is the distance the mass moves up and x is the distance the roller moves down: So I have: h' = x * sin(theta) And: h = d * sin(beta) And... I know that the distance that both the mass and roller travels are equal to each other: x = d...

    Alright let me see... I drew this line in the drawing: The number "2" on the left indicates the final position where the cylinder is when the box is at the top. If we assume that "d" is the distance down the triangle that the cylinder rolls and if h' is the height of the potential energy for...

    In which direction does the friction on the wheel go?

    Oh I see. If the situation was where the wheel was standing at rest and didn't move then the friction force would be to the right to prevent it from rolling but since the wheel is rolling that means our friction force is to the left, correct?

    No you can not reverse the process so it is an irreversible process. Was that correct?

    How to tell the difference between reversible and irreversible process

    My guess is no because the steel block cannot spontaneously go back to 100 degrees celsius after it has been cooled so it is an irreversible process?

    Not sure if I calculated this correctly (Find the final temperature)

    Oh yes, you're right. Then I get: T=\frac{2\cdot 4190\cdot 20+2\cdot 910\cdot 600-2256000\cdot 2}{2\cdot 4190+2\cdot 910}=-319 °C That's clearly not correct though so I'm assuming this isn't the correct method that I'm using. How do you know the final temperature is 100 °C? Is it because it...

    I just realized that I miscalculated on both equations. Let me try again: If the cylinder was made of copper: I assume that the water does not boil so the final temperature will be less than 100 °C (boiling point of water). T=\frac{2\cdot 4190\cdot 20+2\cdot 390\cdot 600}{2\cdot 4190+2\cdot...

    Finding the momentum after a collision

    It's half. So that would make the linear momentum after the collision: p=2Mv+m\frac{v}{2}?

    Finding the momentum after a collision

    I found my v to: v=\frac{u}{2+\frac{m}{3M}} The CM velocity would be: v_{CM}=\frac{2mv}{2m}=v So the velocity of CM would be equal to the speed of the balls?

    Finding the momentum after a collision

    That is I=\frac{1}{3}ml^2 So then I have L=\frac{1}{3}ml^2\frac{v}{l} But how do I go from the angular momentum to the momentum? I need to incorporate it into p=mv somehow but I haven't been able to figure it out.

    Finding the momentum after a collision

    Is it L=I\omega? If my angular momentum is conserved, that means the angular momentum before and after are equal each other. The angular momentum before the collision was L=Mul so that has to be equal to the angular momentum after the collision: Mul=I\frac{v}{l} Then I can find an...

    The incoming ball's angular momentum about the rod's axis before collision is L=Mul The two ball's angular momentum after collision is L=2Mvl The rod moves at velocity v and its angular velocity is \omega=\frac{v}{l} Therefore the momentum before the collision is just the incoming ball...

    What is conserved in the system?

    Is it correct to assume that there is conservation of angular momentum about the CM? Since the added weight (when the two ball join together) thus balance out the uneven weight by moving the center of mass thus the rotation has angular momentum conservation?

    Uniform circular motion and angular momentum?

    Originally I had my speed: M\cdot g=m \frac{v^2}{R} After the water was added, I have: (M+M_{water})\cdot g=m \frac{v'^2}{R'} But I'm not sure how to combine these equations with L = mv'R'? Can you explain that?

    Uniform circular motion and angular momentum?

    My guess is that it got bigger? For a particle, we have that L=mvR Since the angular momentum is conserved, that means that the angular moment before and after is adequate: mvR=mvr Where R is the radius before water was added and r is the radius after water is added (the radius that...
