- Tent - spherical cap

I have a tent in the shape of a spherical cap. Assume we want the volume to be 4 cubic meters, to sleep two or three people. Assume that the material making up the dome of the ten is twice as expensive per square as the material touching the ground. What - Dogde Caliber

The petrol kilometers M (unit: kilometers per liter) of the Dodge Caliber car is modeled by the function: M(s) = - 1/28s² + 3s- 31 What is the car's best petrol kilometers, and what speed is attained? - Acceleration 83304

The acceleration of a mass point during its rectilinear movement decreases uniformly from the initial value a0 = 10 m/s2 at time t0 = 0 to a zero value for a period of 20 s. What is the speed of the mass point at time t1 = 20 s, and what is the path of th - Acceleration 82397

The position of a mass point that moves along the x-axis is given by the relation x=10t²-5t. Express its velocity and acceleration.

- Use L

Use L Hospital's rule to solve (i) Lim x²+5x-14/x²-5x+6 X—>2 (ii)Lim x³+x²-x-1/x²-2x-3 X—>3 - A particle 2

If the motion of a particle is described by the relation a(t) = 7t³ + 2 m/s², and the initial velocity of the motion is zero when t = 0 and the distance is 2m, t = 0.5s. Determine the velocity and displacement when t = 10s. - Parabola with abs

- The MRT train

The MRT running from Taft to North Avenue has a starting velocity of 60km/hr. After a malfunction, the brakes failed, making the train run at a velocity of 80km/hr. What is the acceleration rate if the time for velocity change is 5 seconds? - Penny free fall

A man drops a penny from the top of a 500m tall building. After t seconds, the penny has fallen a distance of s meters, where s(t)=500-5t². Determine the average velocity between 1s and 5s. - Martians

A sphere-shaped spaceship with a diameter of 6 m landed in the meadow. To avoid attracting attention, the Martians covered it with a roof in the shape of a regular cone. How high will this roof be so that the consumption of roofing is minimal? - Megapizza
