    Airtight pot with water at 200 degrees celcius

    New to the forum, so might be posting in the wrong subforum. Not sure this is advanced thermodynamics, but it is a university course so... Im having some issues with a problem: You have an airtight pot (closed) with an inner volume of 10L. The pot contains 5kg water (no air is in the...

    6 degrees of freedom manipulator

    A movable panel is connected to two 6 degrees of freedom manipulators. If the two manipulators move apart in x direction within the same force and the same distance, the forces applied to the point in the panel will be the opposite to each other and will be cancelled out. So then the panel...

    how many degrees of freedom?

    How many degrees of freedom does a classical gas composed of 10^23 point particles have? Does point particles have centre of mass? Do we have to account for the centre of mass, vibrational and translational DOF of each point particle?

    Water Velocity Out of 200m Pipe at 5 degrees

    A resovoir releases water into a 200 meter long pipe with 2m diameter. At 5 degrees relative to x axis so the drop is 200m (sin 5 deg) = 17.4m Since v o is 0 all I can solve for in this veolcity vector: v =(vx^2 + vy^2)^1/2 is for vy = (2gh)^1/2 = 18.4m/sec. Without vx how to solve for vz ...

    Degrees in metres?

    Hello, I am trying to figure out how to calculate degrees coordinates into metre coordinates. My professor is asking to give coordinates in degrees and meters in cartesian cordinates. the only problem is I only have the degree coordinates with is 5.6 N and 0.2 W how can I change this...

    Qualitative treatment of degrees of freedom

    Hello everyone, I would be enormously grateful for any help with the following matter. I am writing about the phenomenon whereby heat-detecting ion channels change their conformation when the temperature changes. I am a chemistry specialist but there is a lot of physics in this particular...

    Degrees of freedom

    I am a mathematician refreshing on my classical mechanics. This is not a homework problem and I am not taking a class in classical mechanics right now. I am using L Hand and J Finch, a textbook on analytical mechanics (based on a series of lectures from Cornell). Question: Show that a rigid...

    Degrees of freedom

    Howdy, I'm refreshing my quantum mechanics by working through Liboff's text. I'd like someone to double check my work. Here's the homework for chapter one and my answers. I think they're all correct but wish a second opinion, just to make sure. This stuff can get tricky. 1.1 For each of...

    Initial velocity of lead bullet at 27 degrees Celsius

    I really do not know where to begin with this one. What i have written down is: T = 27 degrees Celsius final velocity = 350 m/s Latent heat of fusion for lead = 24,500 J/kg c (of lead) = 130 J/kg*K Somehow, I need to calculate the mass of the bullet. Once i find the mass, i can plug that...

    Below or above the horizontal! help asap

    Im taking grade 11 physics. Currently we are doing vectors in 2D. i understand everything except when the angel is above or below the horizontal? I also dont understand when you know if the angle is above or below the horizontal. PLEASE HELP! test tomorrow :)

    Degrees of freedom and specific heat capacity.

    a) Write down the number and types of degrees of freedom for a monatomic gas and a diatomic gas. Using these as a basis, write down the heat capacities in terms of R (the gas constant), and include differences between high and low temperatures for the diatomic case. {6} (b) Why does the...
