- I am confused by this?
*By*:-

A 40.6 kg person finds that they weigh 65.8 N on Planet X. If the radius of Planet X is 9.1x106 m, what is the mass of Planet X? - Does not the motion of light bend toward the direction of motion of the Source,wasn't that which
*By*:-

light ALWAYS goes in a straight line

its distortions in space (due to gravity) that make it look as though its "bending"

(WE dont see that distortio - If Miles Mathis pi is equal to 4,wouldn't that mean that the rule of Pythagorean triangle would
*By*:-

No. the math of a triangle does not involve Pi so would hold up no matter what you used for Pi. What would fall apart is calculating anything to do with a cir - Physics, please help?

A child stands at the rim of a rotating merry-go-round of radius 2.3 m. The child has a mass of 56.0kg, and the carousel turns with an angular velocity of 2.0 rad/s.

a)What is the child's centripetal acceleration?

b)What is the horizontal force requi - a ball is thrown upward with velocity 100m/sec. find velocity after travelling 180m from ground.?
*By*:-

Let g = 10 m / s²

v ² = u ² - 2 g s

v ² = 100 ² - 20 x 180

v ² = 100 ² - 3600

v ² = 100 [ 100 - 36 ]

v² = 100 x 64

v = 80 m/sec

K - How do we known that the speed of light is the same at all parts of the Universe energy levels?
*By*:-

We can't "know" things like that but the current model has very simple axioms and seems to be correct as far as we can tell, so there needs to be compelling evi - 1.How do pulse that are sent down a coiled spring behave when the other end of the spring is station
*By*:-

Be like a yo-yo with the pulses going to and fro, as the spring lengthens and shortens from the fixed point.

Is the wave electrical or physical?

Think of a glacier as a slow moving river that is frozen solid.

It still flows, but the rate may be measured in inches per year.

A glacier is a movin - Is Determinism disproven by quantum mechanics?
*By*:-

Determinism is the idea that if we knew the state of every particle in the universe, we could accurately predict the future using the laws of physics applied to those particles.

On board NASA's Mars rover is a quantum random number generator that use - which state of matter has the highest density?

*By*:-

Sure, there are cheap adapters, or you can make some with 1/4" plywood.

With modification/adapters, yes. However, why would you want to? Simply purch - Why do we say gravity is a long range force? Does Earth's gravity field rely on real or virtual
*By*:-

Wow, you have managed to ask 3 very difficult questions .... I hope you are serious about this ...

First, let’s talk gravitons. They come from the idea ( - Dr Hawkins says " matter slowed down after the big bang (in a vacuum) , Hubble says Galaxies wa

He may be right because Creation may have taken place at a trillions of time the speed of light .At the speed of light creation would have been - Simple machine?
*By*:-

The purpose of any simple machine is to allow a job to be done with less force than would normally be needed. However, when a string of simple machines are added together to accomplish a task, the overall efficiency of the machine decreases. Write a brief - Can pls explain this physics equation to me, it keep saying my answer is wrong but idk know what I&#
*By*:-

My answer: 0.25

- If i were in a rotating spacecraft module spinning for 4 g’s, and the ship was accelerating forward
*By*:-

So say im in a cylindrical spacecraft spinning for 4 g’s and its accelerating forward at 1 g. If by some miracle i was able to stand up in the first place, would i also wobble backwards a bit.would i feel the forward acceleration? - If the mass of the Sun is lost thru radiation does that mean that the speed of the earth continuousl
*By*:-

If the Sun loses mass, then slowly we move away from the Sun. Still we will be going around the Sun.

The sun mass is 1.989e30 kg. It loses 4.4e9 kg per - What will sink faster a heavy ship or a light ship assuming they both take on water at the same rate
*By*:-

light ship because it will get full faster

Which one has the bigger hole.

IF they have the same displacement, the heavy ship will sink first, - Help with physics please!A train travels 120 km in a time of 1.8 hours. Calculate the train’s averag
*By*:-

I've never studied physics before and I recently moved schools and they're making me take the physics test for our final grade and I don't know what I'm doing!! - Physics question on Kinetic Energy?
*By*:-

A 1.5 tonne car is moving with 750,000J of Kinetic energy. Determine the speed of the car. - Can anyone pls pls explain to me what I'M doing wrong in this physics equation?
*By*:-

My work:

25+30=55

6.0/55= 0.109

when I would enter my answer im being told that its incorrect but idk what im doing wrong!!

What have these units?*By*:-

I know the basics: distance in m; area in m^2; volume in m^3; time in s; velocity in ms^-1; acceleration in ms^-2. Also frequency in Hz which is s^-1 And that got me wondering what, if anything, has units of s^-2, ms, m^2s^-1, and so forth.

Update: - What is the power of a 33 ohm toaster when hooked up to a 120 V outlet?
*By*:-

P = V*I

I = V/R

P = V*I = V*V/R = V^2/R = 144*10^2/33 = 436 watt

E= I x R; you know E and you know R, so get out your calculator and solve for I, t - Is Physics a difficult subject?
*By*:-

I was considering taking a hybrid Fundamentals of Physics course over the summer (8 weeks), but I have no idea what I would be getting myself into and I fear failing it. It also comes with a lab component as well. Would I be making a mistake? Is it better - Is chaos essential to change?
*By*:-

Update:

@Anon I was thinking of chaos in the most general terms. Say for instance, for even a new moment to emerge, the previous moment must first be annihilated. For one course of action to take place all other possible courses of action must not ta
