Answers (1)

We have that Mark cuts the board with 12 feets length on 8 same pieces. So, we have to divide 12 by 8:
\(12/8=1.5\) feet is the length of one piece
Result: 1.5 feet is the length of one piece

4.7 A multiprocessor with eight processors has 20attached tape drives. There is a large number of jobs submitted tothe system that each require a maximum of four tape drives tocomplete execution. Assume that each job starts running with onlythree tape drives for a long period before requiring the fourthtape drive for a short period toward the end of its operation. Alsoassume an endless supply of such jobs.
a) Assume the scheduler in the OS will not start a job unlessthere are four tape drives available. When a job is started, fourdrives are assigned immediately and are not released until the jobfinishes. What is the maximum number of jobs that can be inprogress at once? What is the maximum and minimum number of tapedrives that may be left idle as a result of this policy?
b) Suggest an alternative policy to improve tape driveutilization and at the same time avoid system deadlock. What is themaximum number of jobs that can be in progress at once? What arethe bounds on the number of idling tape drives?

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).
