When writing a system of equations or inequalities from a situation, how do you know that you have possibly written the system correctly?

## Answers (1) 2020-10-21
You can check that you wrote the correct system of equations or inequalities by verifying that the equations make sense with the given information and checking that the units of the expressions make sense for the situation.

The outlaw plans to have the wagon roll downthe slope and across the level ground, and then fall into thecanyon where his confederates wait. But in a tree 40m from thecanyon edge wait the Lone Ranger (mass 75.0kg) and Tonto (mass60.0kg). They drop vertically into the wagon as it passes beneaththem. a) if they require 5.0 s to grab the gold and jump out, willthey make it before the wagon goes over the edge? b) When the twoheroes drop into the wagon, is the kinetic energy of the system ofthe heroes plus the wagon conserved? If not, does it increase ordecrease and by how much? asked 2021-03-13 When a person stands on tiptoe (a strenuous position), the position of the foot is as shown in Figure (a). The total gravitational force on the body, vector F g, is supported by the force vector n exerted by the floor on the toes of one foot. A mechanical model of the situation is shown in Figure (b), where vector T is the force exerted by the Achilles tendon on the foot and vector R is the force exerted by the tibia on the foot. Find the values of vector T , vector R , and θ when vector F g = 805 N. (Do not assume that vector R is parallel to vector T .) asked 2021-02-09 In a nonlinear system of equations or inequalities, ______ equation or inequality must be nonlinear. asked 2021-05-20 Assume that a ball of charged particles has a uniformly distributednegative charge density except for a narrow radial tunnel throughits center, from the surface on one side to the surface on the opposite side. Also assume that we can position a proton any where along the tunnel or outside the ball. Let $$\displaystyle{F}_{{R}}$$ be the magnitude of the electrostatic force on the proton when it islocated at the ball's surface, at radius R. As a multiple ofR, how far from the surface is there a point where the forcemagnitude is 0.44FR if we move the proton(a) away from the ball and (b) into the tunnel? asked 2021-01-31 A roadside vegetable stand sells pumpkins for$5 each and squashes for $3 each.

Two stationary point charges +3 nC and + 2nC are separated bya distance of 50cm. An electron is released from rest at a pointmidway between the two charges and moves along the line connectingthe two charges. What is the speed of the electron when it is 10cmfrom +3nC charge?
Besides the hints I'd like to ask you to give me numericalsolution so I can verify my answer later on. It would be nice ifyou could write it out, but a numerical anser would be fine alongwith the hint how to get there. asked 2021-04-26
An elevator (mass 4850 kg) is to be designed so that themaximum acceleration is 0.0600g. What is the maximum and the minimum forces the motor should exert on the supportingcable?
I already know how to find the maximum force (just multiplyingthe maximum acceleration by the mass), but I've got no clue as tohow to find the minimum acceleration when no minimum accelerationhas been found.
