## 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.

## If the rate-determining step limits the speed of a reaction, which statement is correct? Even if one or more fast steps occur in a reaction, the overall reaction cannot proceed any faster than the slowest step. If the first step is slow and the second step is fast, then the second step should determine the rate of the overall reaction. Increasing the concentration of a molecule that occurs in a fast step after a slow step will increase the overall rate of the reaction. In a unimolecular reaction where A decomposes to B and C, the rate of the reaction will decrease if the concentration of A is increased.

A positive cahnge of enthalpy, ΔH rxn = + 55 kJ/mol, for the forward reaction means that the reaction is endothermic, i.e. the reactants absorb energy and the products are higher in energy.

Activation energy is the difference in the energy level of the reactants and the peak in the potential energy diagram (the energy of the transition state).

For an endothermic reaction, the products will be closer in energy to the transition state than what the reactans will be; so, the activation energy of the reversed reaction is lower than the activation energy of the forward reaction.

Activation energy of reverse and forward reactions is related by:

Activation energy of reverse rxn = Activation energy of forward rxn – ΔH rxn

=> Activiation energy of reverse rxn = 102 kJ/mol – 55 kJ/mol = 47 kJ/mol

## How did some states respond to the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments? A.People used the judiciary to place limits on African-Americans. B.States passed laws to work around Constitutional law. C.Some state officials moved African-Americans to other states. D.Some states ignored the Constitution

After the US Civil War,  the federal goverment aimed to guarantee equality of rights for all US citizens, by including such provision in the  US Constitution. This happened during the so-called Reconstruction era, through the enactment of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments in 1865, 1868 and 1870 respectively. These amendments abolished slavery and included the Equal Protection clause, that guaranteed equality of rights for all US citizens without discrimination in terms of race, color or previous condition of servitude.

Many Southern states disagreed with the Equal Protection clause and started to issue laws which aimed to circumvent it. These are called Jim Crow laws.

For example, for preventing black citizens from voting, newly-enacted laws set voting requirements, such as a minimum income level or a literacy test. In the end, the result of such laws, was that most black citizens could not exercise their right to vote.

## Posted speed limits are based on which of the following (Select all that apply) A- condition of vehicle B- dry pavement C-good visibility D- idea conditions E- common sense F- speed of other vehicles

The answer is: D. Knowledge is present in an individual from birth.

According john Locke, the only way people acquire new knowledge is by conducting various observations to the things that happened around us.

The process of learning occurs throughout our life. As we possess more experience, the more knowledge that we will have on our disposal.

Because of this, John Locke would not believe in an idea that state knowledge is already acquired since birth without having to make any efforts.

## Opposition to the new constitution centered around its stability to act on individuals. What limits were added immediately after ratification to calm these fears?

A. They were forced to remain in one place at all times.

This is false, for if they remain in this one place at all times, then the animals would eat off all the grass and other food, and then they would slowly die off because there is no food left.

These are true because:
B: Because they move around, you really only carry what you need, and unlike cities with storehouses and such, you really only carry what you can carry on your back
C: they are nomad pastorals which meant that they have herds of animals to both feed them and give them clothing and such. As they move around they don’t have time to plant crops.
D: As you move around, you will encounter some places with harsh climates and limited water supplies. As long as it can sustain the herd (as water is always limited) they can stay there until they need to find a larger area with more food and supplies.

hope this helps 😀

## Which of the following is a component of every great work of art? A. An original vision of the world B. A realistic presentation of factual material C. Brushstrokes that clearly define spatial limits D. Images that are recognized as beautiful

Under the Abbasid caliphate (750–1258), which succeeded the Umayyads (661–750) in 750, the focal point of Islamic political and cultural life shifted eastward from Syria to Iraq, where, in 762, Baghdad, the circular City of Peace (madinat al-salam), was founded as the new capital. The Abbasids later also established another city north of Baghdad, called Samarra’ (an abbreviation of the sentence “He who sees it rejoices”), which replaced the capital for a brief period (836–83). The first three centuries of Abbasid rule were a golden age in which Baghdad and Samarra’ functioned as the cultural and commercial capitals of the Islamic world. During this period, a distinctive style emerged and new techniques were developed that spread throughout the Muslim realm and greatly influenced Islamic art and architecture.
Since the style set by the capital was used throughout the Muslim world, Baghdad and Samarra’ became associated with the new artistic and architectural trend. As virtually nothing remains from Abbasid Baghdad today, the site of Samarra’ is particularly significant for understanding the art and architecture of the Abbasid period. In Samarra’, a new way of carving surfaces, the so-called beveled style, as well as a repetition of abstract geometric or pseudo-vegetal forms, later to be known in the West as “arabesque,” were widely used as wall decoration and became popular in other media such as wood, metalwork, and pottery. In pottery, Samarra’ also witnessed an extensive use of color in decoration and, possibly, the introduction of the technique of luster painting over a white glaze. Admired for its glittering effect reminiscent of precious metal, luster painting, the most notable technical achievement at the time, spread in the following centuries from Iraq to Egypt, Syria, Iran, and Spain and eventually also contributed to the development of ceramic decoration in the Western world. In terms of architecture, along with the palace of Jawsaq al-Khaqani (ca. 836 onward), the mosques of al-Mutawakkil (848–52) and Abu Dulaf (859–61) in Samarra’ were important in setting the style that was emulated in regions as far as Egypt or Central Asia, where it was adapted to need and taste.
In the tenth century, Abbasid political unity weakened and independent or semi-autonomous local dynasties were established in Egypt, Iran, and other parts of the realm. Following the capture of Baghdad by the Buyids (932–1062) and Seljuqs (1040–1194) in 945 and 1055, Abbasid caliphs retained little more than moral and spiritual influence as the heads of Orthodox Sunni Islam. The Abbasid realm witnessed a brief revival under caliphs al-Nasir (r. 1180–1225) and al-Mustansir (r. 1226–42), when Baghdad once again became the greatest center for the arts of the book in the Islamic world and the Mustansiriyya Madrasa (1228–33), the first college for the four canonical schools of Sunni law, was built. However, this burst of artistic vitality came to a temporary halt with the sack of Baghdad by the Ilkhanid branch of the Mongols in 1258. Though surviving Abbasids fled to Mamluk Egypt, these caliphs would only have nominal influence. The end of the Abbasid caliphate thus marked the end of the universal Arab-Muslim empire.
