The measure of an angle is 6 less than 5 times its complement. What is the measure of the complement?

## Answers (1) 2021-02-07
Two angles are complementary if the sum of their measures is 90°. If x is the measure of the angle, then 90−x is the measure of the complement, both in degrees.
Using the given statement, we can write:
x=5(90−x)−6
Solve for x:
x=450−5x−6
x=444−5x
6x=444
x=74
So, the measure of the complement is 90−74=16°.

A 1300-kg car coasts on a horizontal road, with a speed of18m/s. After crossing an unpaved sandy stretch of road 30.0 mlong, its speed decreases to 15m/s. If the sandy portion ofthe road had been only 15.0 m long, would the car's speed havedecreasedby 1.5 m/s, more than 1.5 m/s, or less than 1.5m/s?Explain. Calculate the change in speed in that case. asked 2021-04-15

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use $$\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}$$ for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.
