Answer:

$$F_x=m*g*sin(10)$$ $$F_n=m*g*cos(10)$$ $$F_f=F_x=\mu*F_n$$ $$\mu=\frac{F_x}{F_n}=\frac{sin(10)}{cos(10)}=tan(10)=0.1763$$

Answer:

$$\Delta m= M(^2H)+M(^3H)-M(^4He)-M(^1n)$$ $$ = 2.014101+3.016049-4.002603-1.008665$$ $$=.01888208$$ amu $$E=\Delta m*c^2= 17.5887MeV$$

Question:

Determine the area of the region below the parametric curve given by the following set of parametric equations. You may assume that the curve traces out exactly once from right to left for the given range of t $$x=4t^3-t^2$$ $$y=t^4+2t^2$$ $$1<=t<=3$$

Answer:

$$A=\int y dx = \int y\frac{dx}{dt} dt$$ $$A=\int_1^3 (t^4+2t^2)(12t^2-2t) = \int_1^3 12t^6 -2t^5 +24t^4-4t^3 dt$$ $$A=(\frac{12}{7}t^7- \frac{1}{3}t^6 +\frac{24}{5}t^5 -t^4 ) |_1^3 $$ $$A=4586.3619$$
