This problem is baffling myself and several of my friends in the infamous Physics 152 class... so I give it to you to solve. It was on the homework earlier today, and no one got it. Needless to say, we got 5/6 on the homework as a result. But the problem has been bugging us since. So, I was hoping you may have a solution on how to solve this or setup a function of time to assist in solving this.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The question reads as follows:

Assuming the length of day uniformly increased by .0010 secs per century, calculate the cumulative effect one the measure of time over 40 (fourty) centuries.

I would really appreciate help on this problem guys and girls. Thx in advance!
