Number of virus particles, in billion after 1 day:
For \(\displaystyle{x}={1}\) day
\(\displaystyle{y}=-{0.79}\times{1}^{{4}}+{3}\times{1}^{{3}}+{27.3}\)
\(\displaystyle{y}=-{0.79}+{3}+{27.3}\)
\(\displaystyle{y}={30.221}\)

To calculate: The number of days after which, 250 students are infected by flu virus in the college campus containing 5000 students. If one student returns from vacation with contagious and long- lasting flu virus and spread of flu virus is modeled by \(\displaystyle{y}={\frac{{{5000}}}{{{1}+{4999}{e}^{{-{0.8}{t}}}}}},{t}\geq{0}\).
Where, yis the total number of students infected after days.

The unstable nucleus uranium-236 can be regarded as auniformly charged sphere of charge Q=+92e and radius \(\displaystyle{R}={7.4}\times{10}^{{-{15}}}\) m. In nuclear fission, this can divide into twosmaller nuclei, each of 1/2 the charge and 1/2 the voume of theoriginal uranium-236 nucleus. This is one of the reactionsthat occurred n the nuclear weapon that exploded over Hiroshima, Japan in August 1945.
A. Find the radii of the two "daughter" nuclei of charge+46e.
B. In a simple model for the fission process, immediatelyafter the uranium-236 nucleus has undergone fission the "daughter"nuclei are at rest and just touching. Calculate the kineticenergy that each of the "daughter" nuclei will have when they arevery far apart.
C. In this model the sum of the kinetic energies of the two"daughter" nuclei is the energy released by the fission of oneuranium-236 nucleus. Calculate the energy released by thefission of 10.0 kg of uranium-236. The atomic mass ofuranium-236 is 236 u, where 1 u = 1 atomic mass unit \(\displaystyle={1.66}\times{10}^{{-{27}}}\) kg. Express your answer both in joules and in kilotonsof TNT (1 kiloton of TNT releases 4.18 x 10^12 J when itexplodes).

Michelle is studying the relationship between the hours worked (per week) and time spent reading (per day) and has collected the data shown in the table. The line of best fit for the data is \(y=−0.79x+98.8\).
Hours Worked (per week) 30405060 Minutes Reading (per day) 75685852
(a) According to the line of best fit, the predicted number of minutes spent reading for a person who works 27 hours (per week) is 77.47.
(b) Is it reasonable to use this line of best fit to make the above prediction?
Select the correct answer below:
1.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is unreliable but reasonable.
2.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is reliable but unreasonable.
3.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is both unreliable and unreasonable.
