Uniform acceleration 2011-12-06
From Android:
At a certain instant, two cars A and B are 2000 ft apart. At this instant, car A is traveling at 15 miles/hr. and accelerating at 3 ft/s^2 while B is moving towards A at 30 miles/hr. and an acceleration of 2 ft/s^2.

Find the ff:
a.) The possible time of their collusion in minutes.
b.) The distance in ft. each has traveled before collusion.

The rate of change of the volume of a sphere 2009-03-25
From Kaylin:
why the rate of change of volume of a sphere is not constant even though dr/dt is constant?
Constants, and coeficiants 2009-01-10
From Kelsey:
I am having trouble trying to remember what like terms, constants, and coeficiants are. My math teacher hasent been explaining it very well and i was wondering how to remember what they are, and what they are? I dont understand the concepts.

Constantly accelerated motion 2007-10-29
From Priyanka:
A, B and C are three points lying in that order on a straight line. A body is projected from B towards A with speed 3 m/s. The body experiences an acceleration of 1 m/s^2 towards C. If BC =20 m, find the time taken to reach C and the distance travelled by the body from the moment of projection until it reaches C.
If a circle is elongated into an oval .. 2006-03-16
From Bruce:
If a circle is elongated into an oval, with constant circumference, does the area remain constant?
Degree 2006-02-09
From Jessica:
I am a 9th grade home school student and have started doing degrees of terms in my math book. The following is some examples they give:

25a to the 4th power is a 4th degree term

67c to the 9th power is a 9th degree term

x is really x to the 1st power so it is a 1st degree term

10 is really 10x to the 0 power so it is a 0 degree term

They go on to say that every constant is a zero degree term.

My question is why isn't a constant, like 10, simply to the 1st power (making is a 1st degree term) like x.

Undetermined coefficients 2001-11-22
From Hoda:
The equation is:

y" - 2y' + y = t et + 4

We need to use The method of Undetermined coefficients. I have tried assuming that the solution is Atet+Bet+C, but all I get is C=4 and I tried (At2+Bt+C)et+D, but again I get 0=0 when I calculate the first and second derivatives, so i get no information on the constants. Any suggestions?
