Final Destination is an American horror franchise composed of five films, two comic books, and nine novels. It is based on an unproduced spec script by Jeffrey Reddick, originally written for The X-Files television series, and was distributed by New Line Cinema. All five films center around a small group of people who escape impending death when one individual (the protagonist of each film) has a sudden premonition and warns them that they will all die in a terrible mass-casualty accident. After avoiding their foretold deaths, the survivors are killed one by one in bizarre accidents caused by an unseen force creating complicated chains of cause and effect, resembling Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity, and then read omens sent by another unseen entity in order to again avert their deaths.
The series is noteworthy among other films in the horror genre in that the antagonist is not a stereotypical slasher or other physical being, but Death manifested, subtly manipulating circumstances in the environment with a design on claiming anyone who escapes their fated demise.
In addition to the films, a novel series, which includes the novelizations of the first three films, was published throughout 2005 and 2006 by Black Flame. A one-shot comic book titled Final Destination: Sacrifice was released alongside select DVDs of Final Destination 3 in 2006, and a comic book series titled Final Destination: Spring Break was published by Zenescope Entertainment in 2007.
Hey everyone, I have an attempt at fully solving this problem (my final pressure is ##p_f = 5373,64 hPa##, final temp. is ##T_f = 303,15K = 30C##), but this exercise confuses me very much.
First, I have not used the masses in my calculations and I'm pretty sure my prof. accidentally copypasted...
Here is the problem statement along with the figure.
Here, I take the right-ward and anti-clockwise directions to be positive.
After the ball collides with the wall, its angular velocity remains the same and its velocity changes direction while remaining the same in magnitude.
Using the...
a = 9.8*sin(25*pi/180)=>a=4.1417 m/s^2
vf^2=vi^2+2*a*s=>vf=sqrt(0^2+2*4.1417*3)=>vf=4.9850 m/s
Meanwhile the correct answer is:
(vf+vi)/2=>(vf+0)/2=2=>vf=4 m/s
Why is my answer wrong? It seems that the acceleration is what is wrong, but I don't understand why.
For calculating the total impulse, I'm taking the individual impact force times the elapsed time and adding them all together to get the total impulse. Given F = 25N, ## \Delta t_1 =3 secs##, ##\Delta t_2 = 4secs##, ## \Delta t_3 = 5secs##, ## \Delta t_4 = 6secs##.
$$ Impulse 1 = F \Delta t_1 $$...
First I found work:
W=(3.85x10^5)(2.45x10^8)
W= 9.43x10^13
Then used that for difference of kinetic energy:
9.43x10^13 = (1/2) (4.55x10^4)v2^2 - (1/2)(4.55x10^4)(1.22x10^4)^2
9.43x10^13 = (22750)v2^2 - 3.386x10^12
9.43x10^13 + 3.386x10^12 = (22750)v2^2
9.77x10^13 = 22750v2^2
9.77x10^13/22750...
I'm using conservation of energy to solve for both a) and b).
a) Initially, the cart is released from rest, which has maximum GPE at the top of the inclined plane. U_g is converted to K.E as it reaches the bottom of the incline.
$$ E_i = E_f $$
$$ U_g = K.E_f$$
$$ 2mgh = \frac {1}{2}2mv^2$$

Note: wording is ambiguous so I assumed spring started from equilibrium, in which case it stretches as we go downslope. Final height (at lower point on slope) is 0.
Distance along slope = Distance the spring stretches = d= ##s_f## = ##2/cos{\theta}## =2.13
Height change = h = ##2 tan{\theta}##...

I have attempted the problem a few times, and have posted my work below. I thought to check my work using

In a system with no external force like gravity, the final and initial momentums are conserved.
If we have a firework that explodes radially (disregarding gravity), the momentum before the explosion should equal the momentum after explosion. But isn't the explosion caused by an external force?

When a tomato is thrown up with a velocity ##v_0## it’s kinetic energy is 1/2mv_0^2. It will stop at the top and then again comes back to the launch point where it’s kinetic energy will be same as before, 1/2mv_0^2. How is this possible?
Also when we throw the tomato up how can you be so sure...

I'm having trouble putting the rest of the equations together, I believe I need the different from (0,0,0) to (1,0,0) and then (1,0,0) to (1,1,0) right? Then solve for x direction and y direction. What would I use for Wnc tho? I'm very confused.
I am a little lost on the last step of this problem. I get that we want to know how much time elapses for the capacitor to reach 2/3 of its final charge. That is why 2/3Qf is equal to Qf(1-e^-t/RC).
I don't understand how we make the jump to e^-t/Tau is equal to 1/3? and then somehow e^-t/Tau...
Hi Everyone,

Hello!
I have done this problem :
vf^2 = (4.0x10^5)^2 + 2(6.0x10^12)(5x10^-3)
so vf= sqrt((4.0x10^5)^2 + 2(6.0x10^12)(5x10^-3))
I get vf = 4.7 x 10^5 m/s
However, the textbook solutions says vf = 8.7x10^5 m/s.
Where did I go wrong?
Thank you for any help! :)
so I have already done most the work in finding the following things M1A1=M1g-T1, M2A2=M2g-T2 T2=2T1 M2A2=M2g-T2 and then through further working out(use of the invariance of length of L1 and L2 the strings attached to M1 and M2 then finding A1=-2A2) A1=2g(2M1-M2)/(4M1+M2) and...
I have a state |0>|alpha>. Now I want to evolve this state at any time t and find the fidelity between the initial and final states. Any ideas how to do that? My main problem is that I don't know how to evolve this state.
My mentor wants the derivation of this formula.
Me a computer undergrad, unable to figure it out, and my final project are on a halt due to this, any help from the community is greatly appreciated!
Hey there! for this problem i try to use the combinate gas ecuation. First of all the values its necesary to have it in absolutes:
70 F = 527.67 K
90 F = 549.67 K
The ecuation looks like: (200 psig) (1 ft^3)/529.67 K = (0.3 InHg) V2/549.67 K I can eliminate "K" but not psig with InHg for obtain...
I calculated as attached and got it right. However, I just wonder why we can't use conservation of energy as the question has already specified 'frictionless', meaning no energy loss and energy distributed to the rotation only.
So all of the ice melts and I am guessing it then warms some so
Q=mL+mc(change in T)
for the water that cools down
Q=mc(change in T)
Q_cold = -Q_hot so -mc(Tf - Ti) = mL+mc(Tf - Ti)
My issue is that I have 2 unknowns. I don't know the specific heat capacity of water and I don't know the...

Suppose we construct a set, adding at each step a polynomial number of elements.
My impression that after we do countably infinite number of steps, the set will have countably infinite cardinality.
But what happens if we add exponential number of elements each step?
For instance, on step 0 we...
So Ekf-Eki+Epf-Epi=0. I understand that the final potential energy is 0 (distance away approaches infinity), but don't get why the final kinetic energy becomes 0. If the final kinetic energy was 0, wouldn't that mean the object no longer has any velocity and would start being effected by the...
First calculated non conservative work from friction using Ff=umg. Non conservative work was -8.82.
Initial kinetic energy, 1/2mv^2, was 136.89.
Change in potential energy, 1/2k(x)^2, was 8.1216.
Ekf-Eki+Change Ep=Work NC
Ekf=W NC+Eki-change Ep
=-8.82+136.89-8.1216=119.9484
Ekf=1/2mv^2...
Hey guys! I read this fascinating paper about the discovery of a white dwarf merger remnant: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-019-1216-1
To quote the abstract: "For white dwarfs, the mass of the merger product may exceed the Chandrasekhar limit, leading either to a thermonuclear explosion...
So, each capacitor must have a different potential difference, given by its capacity and charge... this would cause charge and current accordingly to flow in the circuit.
But how do I determine the final potential difference, which would of course be the same for both of them? I have tried...
The answer given to the above question is Final pressure$=\frac{(10.0mol\times 5.00bar) + (5.00 mol \times 20.0 bar)}{(10.0 mol +5.00 mol)}= 10.0 bar$ Is this answer correct? if yes, How and why?
My question is while computing this answer, the volumes of each gas is not considered.
Note:-...

First image is an object for the concave lens so won't +ve direction change from right to left?! In that case, object distance will be -ve (from concave lens towards right side). Any ideas? Solution in the book takes first image's distance to be +ve. See attached ray diagram for clarification...
Let's say you have two masses on either side of a spring. Mass 1 is connected to the end of a spring. The spring itself has no mass. Mass 2 is free in space. So you have:
[M1]-[spring] [M2]So it's more descriptive, I'll name the variables like you might in programming. Let's define...

I first calculated initial velocity:
√7.09^2+1.07^2=7.17028
acceleration=√7.22^2+2.47^2= 7.63
then i substituted all values into this equation:
final velocity=initial velocity + acceleration x time
so, final velocity=82.0285
so the magnitude=
final velocity-initial velocity= 74.858271

Here's the problem and the solution provided online by the author (the problem numbers are different but it's the same question). I think I'm okay up until the last step where he declares the Hamiltonian is (1 1 1 -1). Where did he get those components?
Hi,
K₁cos(θt+φ)=K₁cos(θt)cos(φ)-K₁sin(θt)sin(φ)=K₁K₂cos(θt)-K₁K₃sin(θt)
Let's assume φ=30° , K₁=5
5cos(θt+30°) = 5cos(θt)cos(30°)-5sin(θt)sin(30°) = (5)0.866cos(θt)-(5)0.5sin(θt) = 4.33cos(θt)-2.5sin(θt)
If only the final result, 4.33cos(θt)-2.5sin(θt), is given, how do I find the original...
