## Down under boomerang, inc., is considering a new three-year expansion project that requires an initial fixed asset investment of \$2.64 million. the fixed asset will be depreciated straight-line to zero over its three-year tax life, after which time it will be worthless. the project is estimated to generate \$2,060,000 in annual sales, with costs of \$755,000. the tax rate is 35 percent and the required return on the project is 13 percent. what is the project’s npv?

To answer this problem, 1st let us calculate
the total annual cash flow.

We define the given variables:

Annual Income = \$2,060,000

Annual Cost = \$755,000

Annual Profit = \$2,060,000 – \$755,000 = \$1,305,000

Annual Tax = \$1,305,000 * 0.35 = \$456,750

Depreciation = \$2.64 million / 3 = \$880,000

Savings from Depreciation = \$880,000 * 0.35 = \$308,000

Therefore,

Annual Cash Flow = Annual Profit + Savings from
Depreciation

Annual Cash Flow = \$1,305,000 + \$308,000

Annual Cash Flow = \$1,613,000

The present value of annuity is:

P = A [1 – (1 + i)^-n ] / i

P = \$1,613,000 [1 – (1 + 0.13)^(-3)] / 0.13

P =
\$3,808,539.14 = NPV

## A mercury thermometer has a glass bulb of interior volume 0.100 cm3 at 10°c. the glass capillary 10) tube above the bulb has an inner cross-sectional area of 0.012 mm2. the coefficient of volume expansion of mercury is 1.8 × 10-4 k-1. if the expansion of the glass is negligible, how much will the mercury rise in the capillary tube when the temperature rises from 5°c to 35°c if the bulb was full at 5°c?

The gravitational force Fg between two objects is given by the equation:

Fg=(G*m₁*m₂)/r₂, where G=6.67*10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻² is the gravitational constant, m₁ and m₂ are the masses of the two bodies and r is the distance between those bodies.

Due to the gravitational attraction the pencil and the eraser will attract if we there is no friction on the surface.

m₁=10 g=0.01 kg is the mass of the pencil
m₂=20 g=0.02 kg is the mass of the eraser
r=2.5 cm = 0.025 m

First we calculate the Fg:

Fg={(6.67*10^-11)*0.01*0.02}/(0.025²)=2.1344*10^-11 N

To get the velocity v of the pencil:

v²=2as, where a is the acceleration of the pencil and s is the path. In our case s=r so we can write:

v²=2ar

a=Fg/m₁= 2.133*10^-9 m/s²

v²=2*(2.133*10^-9)*0.025=1.0665*10^-10

v=√(1.0665*10^-10)=1.0327*10^-5 m/s

We have the velocity and the acceleration, so we can calculate the time t with the equation:

t=v/a=(1.0327*10^-5)/(2.133*10^-9)=4841.6 s

1 hour has 3600 s so when we divide time t in seconds by 3600 we get time T in hours:

T=t/3600=4841.6/3600=1.3449 h.

So the time for the pencil and eraser to touch is T=1.3449 hours.

Also time T can be expressed like T= 1h and 20 mins and 41.64 s

## During winters freezing temperatures, some plants can remove water from their cells to reduce the amount of water that will freeze inside them. Why would plants need to do this? A. The frozen water constricts organelles and causes plant cells to shrink. B. As the water contracts during freezing, the cells would pull away from each other, causing damage. C. Less water in the cells means the cells are smaller and need to do less work. D. The expansion of excess water as it turns to ice inside the cells would break the cells apart.

Correct answer: C). Genetically different haploid cells

Meiosis is a type of cell division in which four haploid cells are produced, which are genetically different from the parent. It reduces the chromosome number exactly half as contained in the parent. That is why it is called as a reductional division.

In the first round of meiosis I homologous pairs of chromosome separate and the sister chromatids separate during meiosis II.

## What would be your estimate of the age of the universe if you measured a value for hubble’s constant of h0 = 30 km/s/mly ? you can assume that the expansion rate has remained unchanged during the history of the universe. express your answer using two significant figures. yr?

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

## Why was Catherine the Great’s acquisition of a warm-water port so important for Russia? Select all that apply. It demonstrated Russia’s rising power. It slowed Western influence on Russia. It limited Ottoman Turkish expansion. It fostered a military alliance with Sweden. It improved the ability to conduct trade.

Industrialization led to rising imperialism because
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

## First answer gets Brainliest! What happened in Chile to fuel the tensions between the United States and Latin American nations? A) an economic depression B) colonial expansion C) a civil war D) a natural disaster

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

## When the temperature of a coin is raised by 79 °f, the coin’s diameter increases by 1.90 × 10-5 m. if the original diameter is 1.55 × 10-2 m, find the coefficient of linear expansion?

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

## Which statement describes one of the political consequences of the Watergate scandal? (4 points) It reversed the gains made by Nixon’s Detente policy toward China. It resulted in a significant expansion of protections for criminal defendants’ rights. It enabled Congress to take control of Vietnam War policy away from the president. It represented a major setback for the federal government due to public suspicion.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America.

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

## With which era of American history is this image MOST closely associated? A) Prohibition era B) the Civil War era C) Westward Expansion Eliminate D) the Reconstruction era

C.) To fuel space exploration programs

C is the correct answer because through the process of elimination, we know that European countries are trying to find energy sources the reduce the amount of air pollution, so A is not correct. Also, we know B is not correct because since fossil fuels aren’t always widely available in Europe, drastically running out, and the population of the continent keeps increasing, European countries are struggling to keep up with the demand for fossil fuels. As a result, they are trying to find cheap, renewable energy resources to keep up with the demands of the ever-growing population. Let’s skip to D. D is not correct at all because European countries actually do want to find new renewable energy sources, for the reasons stated in A and B. By investing in them, European countries are funding scientists to help harness the power of nature (solar, wind, hydroelectric, etc…). Let’s go back to C. Yes, a huge amount of fossil fuels are used for fuel in a rocket, and scientists may be trying to find ways to use renewable energy instead of precious fossil fuels, but is that a main reason for European countries investing in new sources of energy? No, it may be a minor reason, not even a reason at all, but definitely not a main reason. After looking at answer choices A, B, and D, you can conclude C is not a reason for why European countries have invested in new sources of energy.

## Dark matter may explain _____. A.unexpected orbital velocities of stars in galaxies B.the source of energy that fuels stars C.the expansion of the universe D.the origin of life E.what came before the big bang AND DONT YOU DARE SAY E.

The correct answer to the question is : 1) Converting energy and 2) Within about twenty years, natural gas forms.

EXPLANATION:

In coal fired power plants, the water is heated by burning coals. The heat produced in this process will convert water into steam. The steam is allowed to rotate the turbine. The turbine is attached to a generator which converts the kinetic energy of the steam into electric energy due to electromagnetic induction.

Hence, turbine helps in converting energy.

As per the second question, Walt listed the steps that occur during the formation of natural gas.

The natural gas is produced due to natural phenomenon. For this, millions of years are passed. So, it is a long range process in which the fossil of animals and planets buried beneath the surface are converted into natural gas under high pressure.

Hence, the mistake of Walt is  that the natural gas is produced withing twenty years.

## Which statement is correct about the expansion of the roman empire ? A) The roman empire lost its military as it was invading other areas B)The roman empire gained new territory by conquering neighboring lands C)The roman empire closed the roads when people attempted to leave Rome. D) The roman empire expanded because senators loved their dictator , Caesar.

A.  Advancing a particular cause or belief

Interest groups are a type of formal organization of people, whose primary purpose is to advance a particular cause, policy or belief that benefits them directly or one segment of society or several.

They attempt to do so by taking several actions that include to lobby government (including members of Congress, the executive branch, etc.), engage in election activities, educate people about their interests, activities, relevance, current issues, etc., and to mobilize people who act on behalf of the organization in order to perform activities, such as writing letters, making phone calls and demonstrating, among others.

## The follow list gives the coefficient for the binomial expansion of (x+y)^10 what is the value of B? 1,10,45,120,210,252,210,B,45,10,1

Question 1:
Because we start with the year 2000, we must subtract 2000 from 2015 giving us t= 15 years.
Question 2:
Like Question 1, we must subtract 2000 from 2010, giving us t=10 years.  We then plug t=10 into the first equation, giving 1.5*10+42, which equals 57.  Then because this number is in thousands of dollars, we know that the average income is equal to 57,000 dollars.
Question 3:
For this problem, we can use the same value for t as we used in Question 2, t=10 years, because we are dealing with the same date, 2010.  We then plug this value of t into the second equation, giving 0.3*10+8.4, which equals 11.4.  We then multiply this number by 1 million because this number is in millions of people giving an answer of 11,400,000 Hispanic people in 2010.
Question 4:
We must take the number 11,400,000. from Question 3 and put this into scientific notation by moving the decimal point to the left until there is only one number of the left side of the decimal point and multiplying our result of that by 10 to the power of how many places we moved the decimal point, giving us 1.14*10^7(^ means to the power).
Question 5:
The total income of all Hispanic families is going to be equal to the number of total Hispanic families (0.3t+8.4) times the income of one average Hispanic family (1.5t+42).  However, we first must recognize that the formula for the number of Hispanic families is in millions, but the formula for the average income of one Hispanic family is in thousands.  Since thousands is less than millions we will change both will change the formula for the number of Hispanic families to thousands by multiplying the first equation by 1000.  This gives us an a new equation of 300t+8400 for the number of Hispanic families in thousands.  Now we can multiply the two equations together using the FOIL Method (First, Outer, Inner, Last).  This gives us a resulting equation of (1.5t*300t+42*8400+42*300t+8400*1.5t).  When we multiply out these terms, we get (450t^2+352800+12600t+12600t).  Since there are multiple terms with the same power of t, we can combine like terms and condense the equation to 450t^2+352800+25200t.  Since there are some pretty big numbers in this equation, we can divide the whole equation, which is in thousands, by one thousand, which in turn will make the equation in millions.  This yields (.45t^2+352.8+25.2t) in millions.  This is the equation for the total income of all Hispanic families in a given year after the year 2000 where t is equal to the current year minus 2000.
Question 6:

## Amazon Selling Success Ideas | Amazon Global Expansion

### Amazon Inc.

#### Introduction

Amazon is an American multinational company, which was incorporated in 1994, by Jeff Bezos. Company in July 1995, sold the first book through Amazon.com. Amazon serves worldwide. Amazon has retail in United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Ireland, Canada, France, Italy, Australia, Spain, Netherlands, India, Mexico etc. They also do international shipping in many countries. Amazon is working on best strategies in the market, as they have analyzed the marketplace. They are spotting or focusing on Business-to-consumer relationship; they have realized the values of customers and focused on the business-to-business and consumer-to-business relationship. They are facilitating the customers across the world by providing the products of their choice; however though, they are earning commission all the way through sales and focused on building the entire websites which are based on the Amazon platform.

#### Amazon Make Sensible Choices In Emerging Markets Entry Strategies

Amazon has always focused on its strategies; the company is well aware about the market condition and knows how to target market or potential customers. However, on June 5, 2013, Amazon has entered the market of India and launches its products, 10 before they have entered in the market of China because they know that customers are more willing to buy products there. The strategies were effective. The mode to entering in India have the various competitive strategies example Amazon is the first e-tailor which has entered in the Indian market, they have managed new logistic system at that time and they have offered multiple strategies including sales and incentive so they customers can be motivated to buy the products. Amazon has made the correct decision to enter the Indian market, because over next decade the industry has grown about 61% (Feierman, 2015).

The previous entries of Amazon before India were in China and Brazil, where they have also focused on the various strategies and get success in the market. Amazon has started its business in Brazil and in 2012 the market was expected to grow, Amazon decision was good to enter in the market of Brazil because it is one of the largest emerging market of the world, the population of Brazil have access to internet and mobiles, However, Amazon has also faced problems in Brazil due to poor economic conditions as the complicated consumption of tax system and some other factors which restrict them from development.

Amazon has faced the China as a largest e-commerce market, to entering in the China market was the correct decision for the Amazon, as in past 10 years Amazon has earned profit there by considering the investment plans.
