## At a playground, a child slides down a slide that makes a 42° angle with the horizontal direction. the coefficient of kinetic friction for the child sliding on the slide is 0.20. what is the magnitude of her acceleration during her sliding?

Assuming metric units, metre, kilogram and seconds

Best approach: draw a free body diagram and identify forces acting on the child, which are:
gravity, which can be decomposed into normal and parallel (to slide) components
N=mg(cos(theta)) [pressing on slide surface]
F=mg(sin(theta))  [pushing child downwards, also cause for acceleration]
m=mass of child (in kg)
g=acceleration due to gravity = 9.81 m/s^2
theta=angle with horizontal = 42 degrees

Similarly, kinetic friction is slowing down the child, pushing against F, and equal to
Fr=mu*N=mu*mg(cos(theta))
mu=coefficient of kinetic friction = 0.2

The net force pushing child downwards along slide is therefore
Fnet=F-Fr
=mg(sin(theta))-mu*mg(cos(theta))
=mg(sin(theta)-mu*cos(theta))   [ assuming sin(theta)> mu*cos(theta) ]

From Newton’s second law,
F=ma, or
a=F/m
=mg(sin(theta)-mu*cos(theta))  /  m
= g(sin(theta)-mu*cos(theta))   [ m/s^2]

In case imperial units are used, g is approximately 32.2 feet/s^2.
and the answer will be in the same units [ft/s^2] since sin, cos and mu are pure numbers.

## “That you want us to call him Nikhil.” “That is correct.” Mrs. Lapidus nods. “The reason being?” “That is our wish.” “I’m not sure I follow you, Mr. Ganguli. Do you mean that Nikhil is a middle name? Or a nickname? Many of the children go by nicknames here. On this form there is a space—” “No, no, it’s not a middle name,” Ashoke says. He is beginning to lose patience. “He has no middle name. No nickname. The boy’s good name, his school name, is Nikhil.” Mrs. Lapidus presses her lips together and smiles. “But clearly he doesn’t respond.” “Please, Mrs. Lapidus,” Ashoke says. “It is very common for a child to be confused at first. Please give it some time. I assure you he will grow accustomed.” Which statement best explains how Lahiri explores conflict brought on by globalization? 1.Lahiri uses descriptions to compare elements of traditional schooling in different cultures. 2.Lahiri uses the characters’ actions to show how people from different cultures can work together to resolve conflicting values. 3.Lahiri uses the setting to highlight her opinions on the educational systems in both the United States and India. 4.Lahiri uses dialogue to show how people from different cultures can have difficulty relating to each other’s experiences.

The answer is D. Lahiri want’s to bring attention to how much cultural tension there is between an Indian transfer student and a typical American school. In this  example the conflict isn’t between the child and the teacher: but the communication barrier they have over his name.

## At the city museum, child admission is \$6.40 and adult admission is \$9.60. On Tuesday, 160 tickets were sold for a total sales of \$1305.60. How many adult tickets were sold that day? numbers of adult tickets

X = children

6.40x + 9.60y = 1305.60

x + y =160

x=160-y

6.40(160-y) + 9.60y = 1305.60

1024 + 6.40y +9.60y = 1305.60

1024 = 3.2y = 1305.60

3.2y = 281.6

Y = 281.6/3.2 = 88

So 88

Double check now

X = 160-y

X=160-88 = 72

6.40 x 72 = 460.80

9.60 x 88 = 844.80

844.80 + 460.80 = 1305.60 this checks

88 + 72 = 160 this checks

## A playground merry-go-round has a mass of 120 kg and a radius of 1.80 m and it is rotating with an angular velocity of 0.500 rev/s. what is its angular velocity (in rev/s) after a 22.0 kg child gets onto it by grabbing its outer edge? the child is initially at rest.

To answer this problem, we must remember that momentum is
conserved. Therefore,

Initial momentum = Final momentum

In this case we use angular momentum which it is defined
as:

Momentum =0.5 m ω^2

So finding for final angular velocity, ωf:

mi * ωi^2
= mf * ωf^2

120 kg * (0.5 rev / s)^2 = (120 kg + 22 kg) * ωf^2

ωf^2
= 0.2113

ωf = 0.46 rev/s

## What was the leading cause of the Pullman Strike? Pullman cut wages but did not cut the rent he charged. Pullman forced workers into horrible living and working conditions. Pullman locked workers out of the factory. Pullman used only child labor.

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

## Labor unions did not accomplish which of the following items for the workers? collective bargaining labor laws better working conditions a ban on child labor

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

## You are to create a story for a child of 5-6 years old. You will explain the brain and its functions to them. You need to use the following terms and explain their functions in simple terms. Use the format of a story to keep the child interested, and be sure to use illustrations. Add characters (Dora, Superman, etc.) to make the information fun.

1) Water has very high specific heat.

2) It expands when it freezes

3) ability to dissolve in ionic substances

4) Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid.

Explanation:

1) Water molecules due to their high specific heat , undergo relatively less increase in temperature after absorbing heat. So they prevent their adjoining area to experience sharp increase in temperature.

2) Water is an example which expands on freezing. In it , large spaces are left between molecules when it cools. It happens because hydrogen bonds prevent any two molecules to come very close thereby  creating gaps. This gap is filled up when ice melts , which results in overall reduction in volume of water.

3) Uneven distribution of charge results in water molecules becoming polar in nature . A polar substance  can be dissolved in polar solvents only.

4) It is due to property of surface tension. Property  of surface tension results due to molecules of water near the surface experiencing a  net downward  force due to hydrogen bonds . It is due to fewer hydrogen bonds made by them.

## A child whose parent is depressed is susceptible to depression due to genetics. Please select the best answer from the choices provided. T or F

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

The answer to the question: Although she does not have a background in law, she hopes to land the job because of the:___, would be: Screening effect.

Explanation:

The screening effect is a theory that is used by companies and recruiters in order to effectively select and screen the best candidates for a specific position, even if these candidates may not fulfill all the requirements for that position. What the theory does is propose that candidates who have completed a college degree show their capacities, even if these are not specifically related to an expected topic, by simply achieving this goal, and are therefore worthy to be taken into account for selection. In the case of Tracy, she has not just fulfilled the part of the theory of finishing her degree, but she has overachieved by obtaining the best degrees in topics that are related to a job as a legal assistant. The screening effect will allow recruiters to see Tracy´s records and take her into account, even if she has never had any legal experience, due to her achievements in related topics.

## The average 6-year-old child from a developed nation weighs _____ pounds.

We solve this problem by assuming that the relation is
linear. With that, the slope m must be constant with x = machine hours and y = average
maintenance costs, therefore

m = (13,000 – 8,000) / (\$1.20 – \$1.50) = (13,000 – 10,000)
/ (\$1.20 – X)

(\$1.20 – X) = (\$1.20 – \$1.50) * (13,000 – 10,000) / (13,000
– 8,000)

\$1.20 – X = – \$0.30 * 3,000 / 5,000

\$1.20 – X = – 0.18

X = \$1.38

Therefore total expected maintenance cost is:

Total maintenance cost = \$1.38 * 10,000

Total maintenance cost = \$13,800

Therefore the answer is closest to the value of \$13,440.
