## Oscar Corporation is planning to construct an elliptical gate at its headquarters. The width of the ellipse will be 5 feet across and its maximum height along the center will be 3 feet. The company wants to place two bright spots at the foci of the ellipse. How far from the center of the ellipse will the spots be located?

Draw the elliptical gate and show the foci, the width, and height as in the figure below.
Note that
a = 5 ft, the width
b = 3 ft, the height

The center is at (0,0).
The foci are at (c, 0) and at (-c, 0).

The foci are related to a and b by
c² = a² – b²
= 5² – 3² = 16
c = +4 or -4

The foci are located 4 ft horizontally from the center of the ellipse.

## Read the excerpt from Act I, scene i of Romeo and Juliet. Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all. Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love: Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate! O any thing! of nothing first create. O heavy lightness! serious vanity! Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms! Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health! Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is! This love feel I, that feel no love in this. Dost thou not laugh? The oxymorons in Romeo’s dialogue emphasize a) the anger he feels toward a certain woman. b) his certainty about his romantic fate. c) the extreme emotions that he is feeling. d) his confusion about Benvolio’s advice.

1. About a trillion comets are thought to be located far, far beyond pluto in the Oort cloud. Oort cloud is theoretical cloud of predominantly icy planetesimals and. Many scientists have a belief that it surrounds the Sun at the distance of approximately between 50,000 and 200,000 AU. Such forces as  passing stars and of the Milky Way usually easily affect the outer Oort cloud and dislodge comets right from their orbits through the Oort the cloud and then they send them to the the inner Solar System.
2. The bright spherical part of a comet observed when it is close to the sun is the coma. When coma is viewed by a telescope it looks quite fuzzy and, unlike the stars, it does not have legible form. Such a phenomenon as the coma is created when a comet comes too close to the sun, then a comet warms and sublimes its parts. These parts are placed  around  the nucleus of a comet forming sort of envelope.
3. A comet’s plasma tail stretches directly away from the sun. Both coma and comet’s tail are visible parts of a comet, and when the comet passes through the inner Solar System we it becomes visible right from Earth. Usually comets have two tails :the blue plasma tail and the red dust tail. The plasma tail is formed by an interaction between the solar wind and the cometary plasma. And the dust tail is caused due to the activity of solar radiation pressure directed to the cometary dust.

4. A comet’s nucleus is the frozen portion of a comet. The conet nucleus is  the solid center of the head of a comet that is also called ”dirty snowball” or an ”icy dirtball” among astronomists. It consists of rock, dust, and frozen gases and when they are heated by the Sun they form a coma (which is an atmosphere that surrounds nucleus) by sublimating of the gases.

5. Particles ejected from a comet can cause a meteor shower on Earth. A meteor shower is a celestial phenomenon during which we can see how meteors radiate. The meteors which we can observe are formed by meteoroids that enter Earth’s atmosphere at extremely high speeds and they usually move in parallel directions. Some of the meteors are too small and often don’t even reach the surface of Earth as they disintegrate during the entering process.

6. The Kuiper Belt extends from about beyond the orbit of neptune to about twice the distance of neptune from the sun.  It is the circumstellar disc that uccurs in the Solar System beyond the already known planets. Its formreminds of asteroid belt, but it is far larger, to be more exact in 20 times. I

## Blue light, which has a wavelength of about 475 nm, is made to pass through a slit of a diffraction grating that has 425 lines per mm and forms a first-order bright band. What is the angle of diffraction? Round answer to the nearest whole number.

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

## I have travelled the length and breadth of Alabama, Mississippi and all the other southern states. On sweltering summer days and crisp autumn mornings I have looked at her beautiful churches with their spires pointing heavenward. I have beheld the impressive outlay of her massive religious education buildings. Over and over again I have found myself asking: “Who worships here? Who is their God? Where were their voices when the lips of Governor Barnett dripped with words of interposition and nullification? Where were their voices of support when tired, bruised, and weary Negro men and women decided to rise from the dark dungeons of complacency to the bright hills of creative protest?” What is the main idea of the paragraph?

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

## Read the excerpt from "Annabel Lee," by Edgar Allan Poe. And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; How does Poe use a sound device in the excerpt? He uses euphony to create the sounds of nature at night. He uses alliteration to link images of the night with images of his loss. He uses cacophony to proclaim the depth of his emotion. He uses internal rhyme to enhance the rhythm of his lyrical poem.

## Hector has written this topic sentence. Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech includes many metaphors to show the suffering of African Americans. Which excerpt from the speech best supports this topic sentence? One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual.

C) A certain cool-headedness had come to him

E) [D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength

Both of these sentences show that Rainsford can easily handle stress. The first sentence says that he was overcome by “cool-headedness”. In the second stanza the speaker uses words like “doggedly, slow, deliberate and conserving his strength.” In all of these instances Rainsford was in danger,; however, he was able to keep calm and think clearly about what he should do next.

c. The discoloration of ages had been great.

Explanation:

The Fall of the House of Usher (The Fall of the House of Usher) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1839.  The story begins with an unnamed narrator who arrives at the home of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining about an illness, and asking for his help. When he arrives, the narrator observes a thin crack that extends from the roof at the front of the building to the lake.

Although Poe wrote this tale before the invention of modern psychological science, Roderick’s condition can be described according to his terminology. It includes a form of sensory overload known as hyperesthesia (hypersensitivity to textures, light, sounds, smells and tastes), hypochondria (an excessive worry or temerity in having a serious illness), and acute anxiety. It is revealed that Roderick’s twin sister, Madeline, is also ill and falls into cataleptic trances, as if in a state of death. The narrator is impressed by Roderick’s paintings, and tries to cheer him up by reading with him and listening to his improvised musical compositions on guitar. Roderick sings “The Haunted Palace,” then tells the narrator that he believes that the house in which he lives may be alive, and that this sensitivity stems from the arrangement of the house and the surrounding vegetation.

## The author chose to tell Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy from the perspective of children rather than adults. Which best describes the effectiveness of this strategy in recounting the story? It is ineffective because the reader is not able to understand who is involved in the racial conflict occurring between Phippsburg and Malaga. It is ineffective because the reader is not able to understand the reasons behind the racial conflict occurring between Phippsburg and Malaga. It is effective because the reader is able to better understand how young people are experiencing the racial conflict between Phippsburg and Malaga. It is effective because the reader is able to better understand what occurs as a result of the racial conflict between Phippsburg and Malaga.

The example of deductive reasoning is A. In my community, it’s a law that all dogs out on walks must be on leashes, so most dogs I see on walks today will be on leashes.

Explanation:

Deductive reasoning goes from a broad premise to a more specific/limited conclusion. That means we first have information that reaches everyone or a large group of people/things and, from that information, we can reach a logical conclusion about one or more individuals.

Letter A is the only option that presents deductive reasoning. Our broad premise is the existence of a law that all dogs on walks must be on leashes. If that premise is true, it is only logical to conclude that, when there is a law, most people will obey it. If most people obey it, then most of the dogs I see on walks today will be on leashes.

## 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. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP
