Using "Proof by Contraposition",sho that: if n is any odd integer and m is any even integer, then, $$\displaystyle{3}{m}^{{3}}+{2}{m}^{{2}}$$ is odd.

Let n be odd integer and m be even integer claim: $$\displaystyle{3}{m}^{{3}}+{2}{m}^{{2}}$$ is odd.
We will prove this by contradiction.
On contrary suppose $$\displaystyle{3}{m}^{{3}}={2}{m}^{{2}}$$ is not odd.
i.e. $$\displaystyle{3}{m}^{{3}}={2}{m}^{{2}}$$ is even
$$\displaystyle\therefore{3}{m}^{{3}}$$ is even
$$\displaystyle\therefore{m}^{{3}}$$ is even
$$\displaystyle\therefore{m}$$ is even
which is contradiction
$$\displaystyle\therefore$$ our supposition is wrong
$$\displaystyle\therefore{3}{n}^{{3}}+{2}{m}^{{2}}$$ is odd.

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. asked 2021-04-24
