A gymnast is in a tucked position to complete her somersaults. While tucked her moment of inertia about an axis through the center of her body is 16.0 kg-m² and she rotates at 2.5 rev/s. When she kicks out of her tuck into a straight position, her moment of inertia becomes 19.5 kg-m². What is her rate of rotation after she straightens out?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

Explanation:

Given that:

  • moment of inertia of tucked body,
  • rotational speed of the body,
  • i.e.
  • moment of inertia of  the straightened body,

Now using the law of conservation of angular momentum:

angular momentum of tucked body=angular momentum of straight body

Suppose a man's scalp hair grows at a rate of 0.49 mm per day. What is this growth rate in feet per century?

Answers

Answer:

58.703 ft/centuri

Explanation:

Length of the hair grow, l = 0.49 mm

Time to grow, t = 1 day

Convert mm into feet.

We know that, 1 mm = 0.00328 feet

So, 0.49 mm = 0.49 x 0.00328 = 0.0016072 ft

Convert day into century.

We know that, 1 century = 36525 days

So, 1 day = 1 / 36525 centuri

growth rate of hair =  

                               = 58.703 ft/centuri

Which unit is part of the SI system? gram



pint



quart



gallon

Answers

Answer:

Gram.

Explanation:

The SI system refers to the International System of Units and it's the most used around the globe. The use of this system is due to the necessity of using the same units in researches from different countries.

This system was first call the MKS system (Meter-Kilogram-Second). The SI system uses these fundamental magnitud units too, meter for length, kilogram for mass and second for time.

Therefore, the right answer here is gram, because it's the base of kilogram which is used in the SI system.

The unit from the SI system would be A) Gram

If a book is knocked off a desk that is .75 m tall at a rate of 2.0 m/s, how far away from the desk does it fall

Answers

Answer: 0.8 m

Explanation:

In the vertical direction, the speed is zero, u = 0.

Distance covered in the vertical direction, s = 0.75 m.

The book would fall with acceleration due to gravity in the vertical direction, a = g = 9.8 m/s²

From the equation of motion,

s = u t + 0.5 a t²

Substituting the above values, we will find out the time taken for the book to hit the ground.

⇒0.75 m=0+0.5×9.8 m/s²×t²

⇒t = √0.153 = 0.39 s ≈ 0.40 s

Now, the horizontal distance covered,

d = v×t ⇒d= 2.0 m/s × 0.40 s =0.8 m

Hence, the book falls 0.8 m away from the desk.

In the light reactions, electrons from _______ replenish chlorophyll molecules that have given up electrons.​

Answers

Answer: water

 The light reactions of noncyclic photophosphorylation takes place in the chloroplast. The light energy is converted to chemical energy to produce both ATP and NADPH, which act as energy-transfer molecules in the light-independent reactions of the Calvin cycle. The addition of phosphate due to synthesizing of ATP by cells results to photophosphorylation.

Moreover, the electrons from water replenish chlorophyll molecules that have given up electrons by photolysis. The two electrons from the water molecule are kept in photosystem II, while the 2H+ and 1/2O2 are left out for further use.
