    What is the normal force in A and B?

    A welded square frame consisting of four equal rods each with mass m and length 2l can move in the vertical plane by means of two small wheels in A and B that move without friction along a horizontal and vertical track, respectively. The disc is released from rest in a position where the sides...

    Does sodium bicarbonate solution release CO2 when heated?

    Homework Statement Solid sodium bicarbonate decompose when it's heated above 50 celsius. However, when it is dissolved in water interactions of components changes. So what happens when sodium hydrogen carbonate solution is heated? Does it release carbon dioxide when temperature is above 50...

    I Thermal Physics: Interpretation of equilibrium constant

    For a reaction defined as such, $$A\rightleftharpoons B$$ the equilibrium constant ##K## is defined by ##K = p_B / p_A##, with ##p## denoting the partial pressure (edit: at equilibrium). However, if ##K<<1##, which implies ##p_A >> p_B##, it is said that the backwards reaction dominates and that...

    Which one is more reactive, CO2 or NO2?

    Homework Statement Which one is more reactive, CO2 or NO2? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I drew the Lewis structures of these species and found there is one delocalized electron in NO2, so I think NO2 is more reactive. Am I correct?

    Does anyone know of a thermally-stable endothermic reaction?

    Hello all, I've used physicsforums a few times over the years, but I believe this is my first post. I'm working on an engineering project in which I need to find a highly-endothermic reaction where the reactants and products will be stable at very high temperatures (well over 800C), or at least...

    Why In Struvite formation HPO42- is favored over PO43-?

    Cheers community, I have been studying the Struvite formation from respective ions. Being the general formula for Struvite MgNH4PO4.6H2O I intuitively tought the reaction would be Mg2+ + NH4+ + PO43- + 6H2O↔ MgNH4PO4.6H2O. However from literature and from practice, not only the optimal pH seems...

    B Entropy change when the number of particles decreases

    Hi. I found following exercise in a high school textbook: "Compute the entropy change in following process:" The solution is "The number of particles decreases from ##N_1## to ##N_2=N_1/2##. Hence the entropy decreases by $$\Delta S=-k\cdot N_1\cdot \ln{2}\enspace ."$$ I can't quite follow...

    Effect of Temperature on Chemical Reaction Equilibrium

    here is the question (part I): For part I, I need some assistance, I cannot figure out how to do the question. I know eventually what to do, it's just working out the equilibrium constants I'm having trouble with. So to start, I want to work out the K values at 600K and 800K, I do this by...

    B Pushing wall

    Dear PF Forum, I have a problem with calculating energy which I should have learnt long ago in my high school time. If I push (accelerate) a 1 kg object 1 meter/sec2 for 10 seconds, I spend energy like this. Distance = 1/2 at2. So I would have pushed this object for 50 metres. So I'm using...

    I Method to know if a reaction is allowed

    Hi guys. This is my first post here. Here it goes. I'm attending an introductory course on particle physics. By now, I'm supposed to know how to find out if a given reaction, say νμ+p→μ++n (for example) is possible or not. Unfortunately, the rules by which a reaction must abide are still foggy...

    A Formula for calculating neutron flux?

    I have a liquid scintillator, the electronics system, and a beam of neutrons from a reactor. How do I calculate the neutron flux? Cold anybody give me a formula or equation? Not this equation: phi = n X v, where phi - flux, n = number of neutrons per cm3, v = velocity of the neutrons, because I...

    B All actions are reactions

    My grandson asked me this question: If in fact,as Newton said,all actions are accompanied by an equal and opposite reaction, then there can be no single actions in the universe;all actions must therefor be part of a reaction between two opposite and equal actions,which are in fact also...
