I'm guessing it has to do with the extra carbon. Maybe since it is a secondary halide, the substitution...

What is the value of the principal quantum number for a hydrogen atom to have a size of one micron?
Homework Equations
r=(5.3x10-11)(n2)
r=1x10-6/2=5x10-7
The Attempt at a Solution
5x10-7=(5.3x10-11)(n2)
97.1 = n
How is this possible? lol Maybe it's more complicated...
Don't you divide 2mm by 100 twice to get to m?
Yes, A is 0.36m. They give the dimensions of the plates as .6mx.6m
Yup, that's what they give in the question. It says charge density is 10 Coulombs/m2
Nope, I double-checked the problem and I wrote it exactly the same. Is it possible we can used substitution? Ex, solve for q and then plug it back into solve for r.
Ooooooh I see, thanks, you made that really clear. So,
E = (1.13 x 1011)(10) = 1.13x1012 Coulombs/m2
b) V = EL = (1.13x1012)(.0002m) = 2.26x108Volts
c) I'm going to attempt this one and say that since you said E = (1.13 x 1011)(Q/A), then:
1.13x1012=(1.13x1011)(Q/.36)
27.8...
a) Well it gives 10 Coulombs/m2 which equals Q/A, so how do I relate this to E=1.13x1011 Q/A?
b) V=(answer in A)(.00002m)
c) I still don't quite understand
Alright so let me attempt this:
F=mg=(1)(9.8)=9.8. This can then be used:
F=Kq1q2/r2
9.8=(9x109)(q1q2)/r2, but then I'm still confused with what r is. Is it what I said?
Homework Statement
Two uniform plates have a uniform charge density of 10 Coulombs/m2. The plates have dimensions of 0.6x0.6 m2 and are separated by 2mm
a) The electric field (V/m) between the two plates is given by E=1.13x1011 Q/A where Q is the charge in Coulombs on one plate and A is the...
I believe r in the first equation is between the centr of the Earth and the object, so would it just be as if the object is on the surface of the earth. And the 2nd equation is the distance between the two objects.

Two equally charged 1g masses repel each other. The lower mass is held fixed.
a)What is the charge on each mass for the Coulomb force to balance the gravitational force of the Earth on the upper mass?

I don't believe we did, but if you say that it wouldn't make sense if we didn't, then why would we be assigned this question? And it says that L=5 in part b.
We are just touching on basics of different waves, sound included. Yes we did touch a little on the nodes. No, we did not discuss tuning forks in a pipe.
Homework Statement
Consider pipe of length L. The pipe is closed at one end and open at the other allowing a standing wave where a node exists at the closed end and a max exists at the open end.
a) what are the resonant wavelengths?
b) If L=5, what is the lowest frequency?
Homework...
So basically it has nothing to do with any wave equations? It`s more of a kinematics question?
So light would be:
3x108=33/t
t=33/3x108
t=1.1x107
So you would just add the two and it would basically be 0.1sec that the violinist should wait since t is so small for light?
b) They see the...

m1u1+m2u2=m1v1+m2v2cos60
(.5)(2)+(1)(0)=.5v1+(1)(.75)cos60
1=.5v1+.375
.625=.5v1
1.25=v1
b) The final direction would just be forward because the value of the speed is positive. Or do you use a formula to find the direction. I'm...

Yes my bad. and for c, does it look something like this?:
mgh=mv2/2
The m's cancel and you get:
gh=v2/2
Solving for h,
h=v2/2g
And then you could work out W=mgh?

Not really lol. I was thinking more along the lines of r3=M and then cubed root M to find the radius. The T can be ignored since its a constant and is the same for both moons.
Ok, this is what I thought of first. When you cross multiply the T (which is constant) multiplies with M so you get M. Then you divide M by 2 and then cube root the answer and you get a smaller answer. But then I used common sense and thought that shouldn`t the mass be larger if the radius is...
