    Thanks for helping Janitor. 1) Since the mass is greater on weekdays the period of oscillation with be greater. 3) Thanks for the tip about beat frequency! The formula is Fb = |F1-F2| Interference will alter the sound. Fb = |100kHz-102kHz| = 2kHz the human ear can hear at 2kHz...

    Please double check my work

    for #3) Can I do y' = (3x^4-9x^3+12x^2+3x) / (x^3+1)^2 y' = 3x(x^3-3x^2+4x+1) / (x^3+1)^2 ? for #5) Can i do h'(x) = 1/2(3+2x)^(-1/2)(2) h'(x) = (3+2x)^(-1/2) ? Im not sure about 10 and 12 it seems like something could be done or? TRhanks again guys i really appreciate it

    What is the tension in the cable

    angle = (80N/60N)/tan = 57.2 Thats how I got the previous answer. How do I calculate it the right way? And I guess it would be from the X axis since the y-component of the force is greater.

    What is the tension in the cable

    Hi, thanks for your help. I think I realized what I did wrong. You have to turn the formula around to solve for just the angle so its angle = (80N/60N)/tan = 57.2 Do I answer the direction is 57.2 degrees North West?

    So for #2, you said it depends if the frictional force is adding or subtracting. If the ball is thrown up it is adding to the weight so it would be positive f. But when it is falling it is subtracting. For #3. You are not able to tell whether the object is moving at those velcoities because...
