### Subject:Calculus

Question:

Let's assume to two funcitons, x1 and x2, are antiderivatives of x. How are x1 and x2 related?

Mike K.

As a tutor, my philosphy is to strengthen conceptual understanding before reinforcing memorized processes. In my practice, this has been the best way to tackle unfamiliar problems when having my knowledge tested. In this case, rearranging the given information to conclude that x - x = 0 will reveal that x1' - x2' = 0. This shows that the derivative of a certain function, x1 - x2, has a derivative of 0 at every point. Therefore, x1 and x2 are both constant and thus are related in that their difference is a constant value as well.

Question:

Please explain the purpose of utilizing an em dash in a gramamtical context and provide a proper example.

Mike K.

An em dash is used to separate groups of words, typically to add emphasis or provide additional specificity to a noun. He enjoyed cooking two Italian meals - spaghetti and baked ziti.

### Subject:Physics

Question:

Two objects move toward each other, collide, and separate. Knowing that no net force was lost, but some kinetic energy was lost, describe to me the type of collision that occured and how this scenario affects linear momentum, if at all.

Inactive
Mike K.

The collision is an inelastic collision because kinetic energy was lost. This is a key differentiating factor between elastic and inelastic collisions, so identifying that piece of information and applying it to fundamental definitions is very important. Additionally, the linear momentum is not affected by this scenario because no net force was lost.
