I am almost done with my junior year at a top 15 liberal arts college. I'm majoring in physics with an overall gpa of 3.5 which I hope to pull to a 3.6 by graduation. My physics gpa is about 3.85. I am interested in attending a top school to do medical physics. Duke, UChicago,UW-Madison, and...

A sphere or mass, m and radius r rolls along a horizontal surface with a constant velocity, Vi approaches an incline with (angle theta). ie bottom angle :smile: If it rolls without slipping,
a) what is the maximum distance,x it will travel on the incline?
b) If it begins to...
How do i find the period of small oscillations and length of the equivalent simple pendulum, for a rectangular plate (edges a and b) suspended at its corner and oscillating in vertical plane?
T = 2pi (I/mgl)^1/2
i calculated l (length) to be (a^2 + b^2 )^1/2 ---(the diagonal) is this right...
How do i find using integrals, I of a rectangular plate with sides a and b with respect to side b?
I know i have to use the equation I = integral of (a^2 dm) and i know
density = m/ab but i'm having trouble figuring out the mass element. Can someone tell me what the mass element is? and...
