  • Two forces
    forces_1 The two forces F1 = 580N and F2 = 630N, have an angle of 59 degrees. Calculate their resultant force, F.
  • Points on circle
    coordinates_circle In the Cartesian coordinate system with the origin O is a sketched circle k /O; r=2 cm/. Write all the points that lie on a circle k and whose coordinates are integers. Write all the points that lie on the circle I / O; r=5 cm / and whose coordinates are
  • Two people
    crossing Two straight lines cross at right angles. Two people start simultaneously at the point of intersection. John walking at the rate of 4 kph in one road, Jenelyn walking at the rate of 8 kph on the other road. How long will it take for them to be 20√5 km apa
  • The fence
    latkovy_plot I'm building a fence. Late is rounded up in semicircle. The tops of late in the field between the columns are to copy an imaginary circle. The tip of the first and last lath in the field is a circle whose radius is unknown. The length of the circle chord
  • Center of gravity
    map_1 The mass points are distributed in space as follows - specify by coordinates and weight. Find the center of gravity of the mass points system: A1 [1; -20; 3] m1 = 46 kg A2 [-20; 2; 9] m2 = 81 kg A3 [9

For Basic calculations in analytic geometry is a helpful line slope calculator. From coordinates of two points in the plane it calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of segment, intersections the coordinate axes etc. See also more information on Wikipedia.
