A. Is very attractive. If it's sublimation directly from water vapor in the air to ice on the glass, then yes. But from liquid water mist to water ice, no. Ice is less dense than water. That's why cubes float in your soda. Better leave 'A' alone. . . . D. Ice pellets turn to liquid. That one's good.

Jordan pushes with a force of 50N> on a crate. The friction forces are 100N<. Will the crate move? What is the acceleration of the crate?

The crate does not move, and its acceleration is zero. Although it's very convenient to treat the effects of friction as a force, and that process usually describes reality quite well, friction is not a real force, and it can never act like a force that's greater than the net applied force. If it could, then we could set a heavy crate down on sandpaper, and use it to generate electricity while it scoots around in response to the large forces of friction under it.

How many times larger than a centigram is a decagram?


The 1 centigram is 0.001 times larger than 1 decagram.


1 centigram is equal to 0.01 grams.

1 cg = 0.01 g ..[1]

1 decagram is equal to 10 grams.

1 Dg = 10 g...[2]

Dividing [1] and [2]

\frac{1 cg}{1 Dg}=\frac{0.01 g}{10g}

\frac{1 Dg}{1 cg}=1000

1 Dg = 1000× cg

The 1 decagram is 1000 times larger than 1 centigram.

A descent vehicle landing on the moon has a vertical velocity toward the surface of the moon of 29.6 m/s. At the same time, it has a horizontal velocity of 54.8 m/s. At what speed does the vehicle move along its descent path?

If the vertical component is 29.6 m/s down, and the horizontal component
is 54.8 m/s parallel to the surface, then the magnitude of the slanty vector is

A water rocket has a mass of 0.8kg and is launched in a school playground with an inital upwards force of 12newtons. what is the weight of the rocket in the playground? What is the inital acceleration of the rocket in the playground? If this water rocket could were launched from the moon what would be its initial acceleration (rember to find the new weight first)

Weight = (mass) x (gravity).
It always acts downward.

On Earth, the acceleration of gravity is 9.807 m/s².
On the Moon, the acceleration of gravity is 1.623 m/s².

On Earth, the rocket's weight is  (0.8kg) x (9.8 m/s²) = 7.84 newtons

On the Moon, the rocket's weight is  (0.8kg) x (1.62 m/s²) = 1.3 newtons

The force of the rocket engine acts upward.
Its magnitude is 12 newtons. (From the burning chemicals.
Doesn't depend on local gravity. Same force everywhere.)

Now we have all the data we need to mash together and calculate the
answers to the question.  You might choose a different method, but the
machine that I have selected to do the mashing with is Newton's 2nd law
of motion:

                           Net Force = (mass) x (acceleration).
Since the question is asking for acceleration, let's first solve Newton's law
for it.  Divide each side by (mass) and we have

                           Acceleration = (net force) / (mass) .

On Earth, the forces on the rocket are

        (weight of 7.84 N down) + (blast of 12 N up) =  4.16 newtons UP (net)

         Acceleration = (4.16 newtons UP) / (0.8 kg) = 5.2 m/s² UP .

On the moon, the forces on the rocket are

         (weight of 1.3 N down) + (blast of 12 N up) = 10.7 newtons UP (net)

         Acceleration = (10.7 newtons UP) / (0.8 kg) = 13.375 m/s² UP

How much time would it take for an airplane to reach its destination if it traveled at an average speed of 790 km/hr for a distance of 4,700km? What is the airplane's speed in miles/hour?

Time = (distance) / (average speed)

Time = (4,700 km) / (790 km/hr) = 5.9494 hours (rounded)

                                                   = 5hrs 56min 58 sec (rounded)

     (4,700 km) / (1.609344 km/mile) = 2,920 miles

Speed = (distance covered) / (time to cover the distance)

                       (2,929 miles) / 5.9494 hours) =  491 miles per hour

Which of these represents a chemical change? A) two compounds combining to form a mixture B) a mixture being separated into two elements C) a compound being separated into two elements D) an element changing state from solid to liquid

Answer: Option (A) is the correct answer.


A chemical change is a change which occurs when chemical composition of a substance changes.

For example, when HCl is added to NaOH then it results in the formation of a salt and water. This means that the chemical composition of reactants has changed.

The reaction is as follows.

           HCl + NaOH \rightarrow NaCl + H_{2}O

Thus, we can see that two compounds combine to form a mixture which is NaCl in the above reaction.

Whereas when we heat solid ice then it gets melted which shows that only the state has changed. Hence, there is no change in its chemical composition because when we freeze liquid water then it will again turn into solid ice. Therefore, it is a physical change.

Hence, we can conclude that two compounds combining to form a mixture represents a chemical change.

Since you're planning on describing the motion of the car, you

What occurs when a swimmer pushes through the water to swim?

The correct answer to the question is that water will exert a force on the swimmer in forward direction, and swimmer will move along that direction.


Before going to answer this question, first we have to understand Newton's third laws of motion.

Newton's third laws of motion states that, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In the given question, the swimmer pushes the water in backward direction. This is the force of action. As per Newton's third law, the water must exert a reaction on the swimmer. The water applies a force on the swimmer in forward direction for which the swimmer can swim in the water.

A 500 kg compact car and a 1500 kg truck are accelerated equally.which vehicle exerts more force?how many times more? (im guessing the 1500kg truck exerts more force but i don't know how to solve for how many times more)

The truck doesn't "exert more force".

It TAKES more force to accelerate the truck at the same rate
as the car, because the truck has more mass.

In order to move two rocks, you have to push harder on the heavy one
than you do on the lighter one.

How much more ?

In order to produce the same acceleration . . .

                    half as much mass  ===>  half as much force

                   twice as much mass ===> twice as much force

             ten times as much mass ===> ten times as much force

 a 1500-kg truck
     compared to
  a 500-kg car . . . triple the mass ===> triple the force, in order
                                                               to accelerate them equally .
