Question
If the length of rectangular television screen is 24 inches and its height is 18 inches, what is the length of its diagonal in inches?

The diagonal of a rectangle forms a right triangle with the two dimensions of the rectangle. If xx is the diagonal (hypotenuse), then by Pythagorean Theorem,
$$\displaystyle{24}^{{2}}+{18}^{{2}}={x}^{{2}}$$
$$\displaystyle{576}+{324}={x}^{{2}}$$
$$\displaystyle{900}={x}^{{2}}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}=√{900}$$
PSKx=30→30 inches

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.
The top string of a guitar has a fundamental frequency of 33O Hz when it is allowed to vibrate as a whole, along all its 64.0-cm length from the neck to the bridge. A fret is provided for limiting vibration to just the lower two thirds of the string, If the string is pressed down at this fret and plucked, what is the new fundamental frequency? The guitarist can play a "natural harmonic" by gently touching the string at the location of this fret and plucking the string at about one sixth of the way along its length from the bridge. What frequency will be heard then?
