Marilda has a block of modeling clay that is 8 inches by 5 inches by 3 inches. She is experimenting with different shapes that can be made from the clay. Give your answers to the nearest tenth. Suppose Marilda wants to make a square pyramid with a 6 by 6 in. base. How tall would it be?

\(\displaystyle{V}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{3}}\right)}{B}{h}\)
\(\displaystyle{120}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{3}}\right)}{\left({36}\right)}{h}\)
\(120=12h\)
\(10=h\)
From part (a), the volume of the clay is \(120 \ln^3\). Let the volume of the pyramid be \(V=120 \ln^3\). If the square base has dimensiont of 6 in, by 6 in, then it has an area of \(B=6^2=36 \ln^2\). Substitute in the volume and area of the base into the formula for the volume of a pyramid. Then solve for h.

A uniform sphere made of modeling clay has radius R and moment of inertia \(\displaystyle{I}_{{{1}}}\) for rotation about a diameter. It is flattened to a disk with the same radius R. In terms of \(\displaystyle{I}_{{{1}}}\), what is the moment of inertia of the disk for rotation about an axis that is at the center of the disk and perpendicular to its flat surface?

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.
