## The most prominent feature of ocean topography discovered in the 1960s was: A. seamounts B. volcanic activity at the ocean bottom C. subduction zones D. a mountain ridge which circles the earth

The western part of South America is a region that is geologically very active. This is due to the boundaries between the South American tectonic plate with the Nazca tectonic plate, and also with the Pacific tectonic plate. Since both, the Nazca and the Pacific plates are oceanic plates, they are heavier, and they subduct below the lighter plate of South America, thus enabling the pressure and temperature from the mantle to come out towards the surface on this boundary lines. This creates lots of earthquakes, as well as volcanic activity.

## The weights of certain machine components are normally distributed with a mean of 8.5 g and a standard deviation of 0.09 g. Find the two weights that separate the top 3% and the bottom 3%. These weights could serve as limits used to identify which components should be rejected. Round to the nearest hundredth of a gram.

To solve this problem,lets say that

X = the weight of the machine components.
X is normally distributed with mean=8.5 and sd=0.09

We need to find x1 and x2 such that
P(X<x1)=0.03 and P(X>x2)=0.03

Standardizing:

P( Z< (x1 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03
P(Z > (x2 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03.

From the Z standard table, we can see that approximately P
= 0.03 is achieved when Z equals to:

z = -1.88          and      z= 1.88

Therefore,

P(Z<-1.88)=0.03 and P(Z>1.88)=0.03

So,

(x1 – 8.5)/0.09 = -1.88 and
(x2 – 8.5)/0.09 =1.88

Solving for x1 and x2:

x1=-1.88(0.09) + 8.5   and
x2=1.88(0.09) + 8.5

Which yields:

x1 = 8.33 g

x2 = 8.67 g

Answer: The bottom 3 is separated by the weight
8.33 g and the top 3 by the weight 8.67 g.

## Which sentences in this excerpt from Leo Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich show Ivan Ilyich’s struggle with his life and his inability to let go of his past? For three whole days, during which time did not exist for him, he struggled in that black sack into which he was being thrust by an invisible, resistless force. He struggled as a man condemned to death struggles in the hands of the executioner, knowing that he cannot save himself. And every moment he felt that despite all his efforts he was drawing nearer and nearer to what terrified him. He felt that his agony was due to his being thrust into that black hole and still more to his not being able to get right into it. He was hindered from getting into it by his conviction that his life had been a good one. That very justification of his life held him fast and prevented his moving forward, and it caused him most torment of all. Suddenly some force struck him in the chest and side, making it still harder to breathe, and he fell through the hole and there at the bottom was a light. What had happened to him was like the sensation one sometimes experiences in a railway carriage when one thinks one is going backwards while one is really going forwards and suddenly becomes aware of the real direction. “Yes, it was not the right thing,” he said to himself, “but that’s no matter. It can be done. But what is the right thing? he asked himself, and suddenly grew quiet.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

## Super-yummy soup, inc. wants to paint their entire soup can red, including the top and bottom. if the diameter of the lid is 5 cm, and the height of the can is 9 cm, what is the approximate total surface area that will need to be painted?

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=   …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

…………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

Substitute x in [1]

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

## The greatest ocean depths on the earth are found in the marianas trench near the philippines, where the depth of the bottom of the trench is about 11.0 km. calculate the pressure due to the ocean at a depth of 9.1 km, assuming seawater density is constant all the way down. (the validity of the assumption of constant density is examined in one of the integrated concept problems.)

a) The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) The total distance traveled by the officer was 225 m.

Explanation:

The equations for the position and velocity of an object moving in a straight line are as follows:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

v = v0 + a · t

Where:

x = position at time t

x0 = initial position

v0 = initial velocity

t = time

a = acceleration

v = velocity at time t

a)When the officer reaches the motorist, the position of the motorist is the same as the position of the officer:

x motorist = x officer

Using the equation for the position:

x motirist = x0 + v · t (since a = 0).

x officer = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

Let´s place our frame of reference at the point where the officer starts following the motorist so that x0 = 0 for both:

x motorist = x officer

x0 + v · t = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²      (the officer starts form rest, then, v0 = 0)

v · t = 1/2 · a · t²

Solving for t:

2 v/a = t

t = 2 · 15.0 m/s/ 2.00 m/s² = 15 s

The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) Now, we can calculate the speed of the officer using the time calculated in a) and the  equation for velocity:

v = v0 + a · t

v = 0 m/s + 2.00 m/s² · 15 s

v = 30 m/s

The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) Using the equation for the position, we can find the traveled distance in 15 s:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

x = 1/2 · 2.00 m/s² · (15s)² = 225 m

Find the distance between them
distance between (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is

so distance between (-2,4) and (18,-6) is

D=10√5

so in ratio 3:7
3+7=10
3/10 of 10√5 is 3√5

I’m thinkin you want R then Q then S such that RQ:QS=3:7
so
distance from R to Q is 3√5
Q is (x,y)
R is (-2,4)
D=3√5

square both sides

now, ithas to be on the line that R and S are on
do some simple math
slope is rise/run=-10/20=-1/2
y=-1/2x+b
4=-1/2(-2)+b
4=1+b
3=b
y=-1/2x+b

sub that for y in our other equation ()

I’m too lazy to show you expanstion and whatnot so I’ll give you the solution
we get (after some manipulation)
0=x²+4x-32
what  2numbers multiply to get -32 and add to get 4?
-4 and 8
0=(x-4)(x+8)
set to zero

0=x-4
4=x

0=x+8
-8=x
but wait, -8 is not between -2 and 18 so it can’t be

so x=4

remember, y=-1/2x+3
sub that to get y=-1/2(4)+3=-2+3=1

the point is (4,1)
apologies for mishap

## A quart of stain covers 100 square feet. How many quarts should you buy to stain the ramp? (Assume you do not have to stain the bottom of the ramp.)

A cross section parallel to the base of a right rectangular prism is congruent to the base.

Step-by-step explanation:

1. A cross section parallel to the base of a right rectangular prism is a square. This is false as the cross section will be a rectangle if the base is rectangular and square if the base is a square.

2. A cross section perpendicular to the base of a right rectangular prism is congruent to the base. No, only parallel cross sections are similar to base.

3. A cross section parallel to the base of a right rectangular prism is congruent to the base. This is true as a cross section parallel to any shape will give the shape of the base. With each slice, the size gets smaller but the shape is the same as base.

4. A cross section perpendicular to the base of a right rectangular prism has the same dimensions as the base. This is false as a completely different shape is generated with different dimensions.

There are four variables which govern changes in population size.
births
deaths
immigration
emigration

A population gains individuals by birth and immigration and loses individuals by death and emigration.

Biotic Potential
Populations vary in their capacity to grow. The maximum rate at which a
population can increase when resources are unlimited and environmental
conditions are ideal is termed the population’s biotic potential. Each
species will have a different biotic potential due to variations in
the species’ reproductive span (how long an individual is capable of reproducing)
the frequency of reproduction (how often an individual can reproduce)
“litter size” (how many offspring are born each time)
survival rate (how many offspring survive to reproductive age)

There are always limits to population growth in nature. Populations
cannot grow exponentially indefinitely. Exploding populations always
reach a size limit imposed by the shortage of one or more factors such
as water, space, and nutrients or by adverse conditions such as disease,
drought and temperature extremes. The factors which act jointly to
limit a population’s growth are termed the environmental resistance. The interplay of biotic potential and density-dependent environmental resistance keeps a population in balance.
Carrying Capacity
For a given region, carrying capacity is the maximum number of
individuals of a given species that an area’s resources can sustain
indefinitely without significantly depleting or degrading those
resources. Determining the carrying capacities for most organisms is
fairly straightforward. For humans carrying capacity is much more
complicated. The definition is expanded to include not degrading our
cultural and social environments and not harming the physical
environment in ways that would adversely affect future generations.

For populations which grow exponentially, growth starts out slowly,
enters a rapid growth phase and then levels off when the carrying
capacity for that species has been reached. The size of the population
then fluctuates slightly above or below the carrying capacity.
Reproductive lag time may cause the population to overshoot the carrying
capacity temporarily. Reproductive lag time is the time required for
the birth rate to decline and the death rate to increase in response to
resource limits. In this scenario, the population will suffer a crash
or dieback to a lower level near the carrying capacity unless a large
number of individuals can emigrate to an area with more favorable
conditions. An area’s carrying capacity is not static. The carrying
capacity may be lowered by resource destruction and degradation during
an overshoot period or extended through technological and social
changes.

An example of dieback occurred in Ireland after a fungus infection
destroyed the potato crop in 1845. During this potato famine
approximately 1 million people died and 3 million people emigrated to
other countries. Increased food production due to improved agricultural
practices, control of many diseases by modern medicine and the use of
energy to make historically uninhabitable areas of Earth inhabitable are
examples of things which can extend carrying capacity. The question is
how long will we be able to keep increasing our population on a planet
with finite size and resources?

## What do scientists already know about the bottom of the ocean

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky.

In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay

…flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene.

De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse,

And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands,
The gaunt grey rocks between;
And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire
Struck blue on the spindrift hoar –

Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm.

Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes.
