There is a clever kitchen gadget for drying lettuce leavesafter you wash them. It consists of a cylindrical container mountedso that it can be rotated about its axis by turning a hand crank.The outer wall of the cylinder is perforated with small holes. Youput the wet leaves in the container and turn the crank to spin offthe water. The radius of the container is 13 cm. When the cylinder is rotating at1.6 revolutions per second, what isthe magnitude of the centripetal acceleration at the outerwall?

1. The centripetal acceleration is
\(a = r_2 = (0.14)(2\cdot1.7)2 =15.9729\ m/s^2\)
2. Given that
The radius \((r)=10cm=0.10m\)
The angular valocity is revolutions/sec
The centripetal acceleration is substitute the above given values you get the required answer
3. Radius of the container \(R =14cm\)
Angular velocity of the cylinder \(w= 1.7rev/s\)
Centripetal accelearation \(a = Rw^{2}\)
4. The equation for centripetal acceleration is \(a = v^2/R\); where v is velocity and R is radius. The equation for velocity is change in X (position) divided by the change in time, t. The change of position during a circle motion is \(2(PI)R \times \#\) of Revolutions all divided by time, t. So \(v = \frac{2(3.14)(0.11m)(2.4)}{1sec}\) Place this velocity in the equation for centripetal acceleration \((v^2/R)\) and you should get an answer of \([6.25\ m/sec^2]\).

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?

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?

If John, Trey, and Miles want to know how’ | many two-letter secret codes there are that don't have a repeated letter. For example, they want to : count BA and AB, but they don't want to count“ doubles such as ZZ or XX. Jobn says there are 26 + 25 because you don’t want to use the same letter twice; that’s why the second number is 25.
‘Trey says he thinks it should be times, not plus: 26-25, Miles says the number is 26-26 ~ 26 because you need to take away the double letters.

Ben and Carl are remembering how you told them that a 0 at the end of a whole number makes it ten times greater. They remember that 420 is ten times bigger than 42, for example. They wonder if the same thing works with decimals. Ben argues that putting a 0 at the end of a decimal number makes it ten times greater. Carl says, "No. You've gotta sneak it in right after the decimal point and push everything to the right." How do you help them to see what's true and what's not?
