D. The correct option is 76 mg.
Ordered dosage = 50   m g / m 2
Patient height = 158.49 cm
Patient weight = 54.43 Kg
Empercial constant = 3600
According to nomogram and mosteller method,
Body surface area ( m 2 ) = 158.49 × 54.43 3600
Body surface area ( m 2 ) = 8623.6 3600
Body surface area ( m 2 ) = 2.39
Body surface area ( m 2 ) = 1.54
1 m 2 = 50   m g 1.54 m 2 = 1.54 × 50 = 77   m g

A 30.0 kg block is resting on a flat horizontal table. On topof this block is resting a 15.0 kg block, to which a horizontal spring is attached. The spring constant of the spring is 325 N/m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the lower block and the table is 0.600, and the coefficient of static friction between the two blocks is 0.900. A horizontal force is applied to the lower block. This force is increasing in such a way as to keep the blocks moving at a constant speed. At the point where the upper block begins to slip on the lower block,determine (a) the amount by which the spring is compressed and (b) the magnitude of the force F.

An elevator (mass 4850 kg) is to be designed so that themaximum acceleration is 0.0600g. What is the maximum and the minimum forces the motor should exert on the supportingcable?
I already know how to find the maximum force (just multiplyingthe maximum acceleration by the mass), but I've got no clue as tohow to find the minimum acceleration when no minimum accelerationhas been found.

Two basketball players are essentially equal in all respects. In particular, by jumping they can raise their centers of mass the same vertical distance, H. The first player,Arabella, wishes to shoot over the second player, Boris, and forthis she needs to be as high above Boris as possible. Arabella Jumps at time t=0, and Boris jumps later, at time tR(his reaction time). Assume that Arabella has not yet reached her maximum height when Boris jumps.
Part A.) Find the vertical displacement D(t)=hA(t)hB(t), as a function of time for the interval 0<t<tR, where hA(t) is the height of the raised hands of Arabella, while hB(t) is the height of the raised hands of Boris. (Express thevertical displacement in terms of H,g,and t.)
Part B.) Find the vertical displacement D(t) between the raised hands of the two players for the time period after Boris has jumped (t>tR) but before Arabella has landed. (Express youranswer in terms of t,tR, g,and H)
Part C.) What advice would you give Arabella To minimize the chance of her shot being blocked?
