Step 1 Consider that the maximum range of the radio is 2 miles. One leaves at 1:00 P.M with rate 4 miles/hr due north and other leaves at 1:15 P.M with rate eaves at 1:00 P.M with rate 4 miles/hr due south. Find at what time they will be unable to communicate. Let t denote the time in hour. after 1:00 P.M. Since 60 minutes =1 hour therefore, $$15\text{minutes}= \frac{60}{4}\text{minutes}=\frac{1}{4}\text{hour}$$ Step 2 $$Since Distance=Speed \cdot time$$ Distance travelled by first children $$(d_1)$$ at any time t after 1:00 P.M will be 4t and distance travelled by second children $$(d_2)$$ at any time t after 1:00 P.M will be $$d_2=\begin{cases} 0& 0\leq t\leq \frac{1}{4}\\ 6(t-\frac{1}{4}) & t\geq\frac{1}{4} \end{cases}$$ Children will unable to communicate when the distance between them will be greater than 2 miles and since they are travelling in opposite direction therefore the distance between them will be the sum of the distance they have travelled. For $$0\leq t\leq \frac{1}{4}$$ the distance between the is maximum $$4 \cdot \frac{1}{4}=1$$ mile which is less than 2 mile hence they will be able to communicate. After $$t \geq\frac{1}{4}$$ they will be unable to communicate when distance between them will be greater than 2 that is, $$4t+6\bigg(t-\frac{1}{4}\bigg)>2$$
$$10t-\frac{3}{2}>2$$
$$10t>\frac{7}{2}$$
$$t>\frac{7}{20} \text{hour}$$ and $$\frac{7}{20} \text{hr}=\frac{7}{20} \cdot 60\text{ minutes}$$
$$=21\text{ minutes}$$ Hence 21 minutes after 1:00 P.M that is after 1:21 P.M they will be unable to communicate.

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). asked 2021-05-05

A spring is mounted vertically on the floor. The mass of the spring is negligible. A certain object is placed on the spring to compress it. When the object is pushed further down by just a bit and then released, one up/down oscillation cycle occurs in 0.250 s. However, when the object is pushed down by 5.00 X 10^-2 m to point P and then released, the object flies entirely off the spring. To what height above point P does the object rise in the absence of air resistance? asked 2021-02-22

A box is sliding with a speed of 4.50 m/s on a horizontal surface when, at point P, it encounters a rough section. On the rough section, the coefficient of friction is not constant but starts at .100 at P and increases linerly with distance past P, reaching a value of .600 at 12.5 m past point P. (a) Use the work energy theorem to find how far this box slides before stopping. (b) What is the coefficient of friction at the stopping point?

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?
