Application Word Problem : Distance, Time and Speed - Object thrown Upward

An object is projected vertically upward from the top of a building with an initial velocity of 144 ft/second. It's distance, s(t) in feet above the ground after t seconds is given by the equation: s(t)=-16^2+144t+100 - find the maximum height, s(t), of the object above the ground. - find the height of the building, th

Fields Extensions/Algebraic

Let F be an extension field of K. Clearly F is a vector space over K. Let u be an element of F. Show that the subspace spanned by {1, u, u^2, ...} is a field IF and ONLY IF (iff) u is algebraic over K. Let S be the subspace of F. Hint for the "-->" of proof. If S is a field and u is not equal to 0, then 1/u is in S. What d

Surface Areas and Volumes of Cubes and Spheres

1. A sphere of radius 1 is totally submerged in a cylindrical tank of radius 4 as shown. The water level in the tank rises a distance of h. What is the value of h? 2. A cube has a surface area of 6x. What is the volume? 3. A sphere has a radius of r. If this radius is increased by b, then the sphere's surface area is increased

Q on Lebesgue measures

M*(A) = inf ( A subset of M) of the sum of |M_i|. If A is a subset of K_s, where K_s = { -s =< x_i =< s} Then show that M*(A) = S^n - M*(A^c) A^c is compliment of A ( I think compliment of A in K_s ? )

A stationary car A is passed by a car B moving

A stationary car A is passed by a car B moving with a constant velocity of 15m/s. Two seconds later, car A starts moving with a constant acceleration of 1m/s^2 in the same direction.(If car has constant velocity acceleration must be zero) a) Using the formula s=ut + 1/2at^2,where s is the distance from the starting point in m

Velocity, Time and Distance of a Rock After it has been Thrown

If a rock is thrown into the air on small planet with a velocity of 25 meters/second, its height in meters after t seconds is given by V = 25t ? 4.9t2. Find the velocity of the rock when t=3 A particle moves along a straight line and its position at time t is given by s(t) = 2t3 ? 27t2 + 108t where s is measured in meters and t
