AP Physics Summer Assignment Question

  1. Aug 25, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Ts=2π√4.5*10-2kg/2.0*103kg/s2

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I just started Physics Yesterday and have no idea what to do.

    That's not a problem statement.

    I assume you are trying ro simplify the expression.
    First, let's make the expression correct by using parentheses. I believe it should read Ts=2π√(4.5*10-2kg/(2.0*103kg/s2)).
    Or more clearly, ##2\pi\sqrt{\frac{4.5 *10^{-2}kg}{2 *10^3 kg s^{-2}}}##.
    You can work with the numbers and the units separately. For the units it reduces to √(kg/(kg s-2)). Can you see how to simplify that?

    @haruspex I am probably so late to this response that it might be a little silly to respond, but I feel as if I have to thank you because your answer, all those months ago, helped me realize what I was supposed to being doing. I honestly meant to respond soon after you posted but it somehow slipped my mind. Better late than never, right?
