## A student used a yardstick to model the displacement of rock at a fault during an earthquake. The student bent the yardstick without breaking it and then let it go. What process did the student show? A. A moment magnitude vibration B. Elastic rebound C. Isostasy D. The formation of a new fault

I think the correct answer would be B. The process of elastic rebound is being shown by the student. It is a theory that is used to explain earthquakes. It focuses on how energy is being spread in times of earthquakes. As the rocks on the fault experiences shift and force, these rocks would be accumulating energy causing it to deform reaching the internal strength and eventually exceeding it. At that moment, a rapid motion would happen along the fault, which releases the energy, then the rocks would go back to its original shape or the undeformed state. This theory is the first theory that sufficiently was able to explain earthquakes.

## His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton. Based on the passage, how do you think Zachary will deal with the conflict in the remainder of the story?

The literary elements suggest that Zachary learned from last year and will have more success this time.

Explanation:

this time Zachary learned to come prepared so he could get the part that he wanted so you should always practice for what you want

## Sonya has just finished a large birthday dinner. when the waiter offers to give her a complementary birthday dessert, she explains that she is not feeling hungry at the moment. this is likely because her:

However, they also point out that it’s OK to have an unusual kind of family structure. On One Tree Hill, for example, Lucas is being raised by a single mom, and he has a close relationship with his uncle, but his dad isn’t completely out of the picture. On a teen show such as iCarly, on Nick, Carly’s older brother plays the role of guardian, because her dad is in the Air Force. Her mom is never really spoken of.

2. I do feel that most of the portrayal of family is accurate, on TV. Modern shows have steered away from the conventional “Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids plus dog” formula, which is accurate, because not all TV watchers are fortunate enough to have that kind of situation. See above answer for specific examples.

3. I think that a definite negative theme in today’s modern shows, revolve around views on alcohol and drugs. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own views, but more often than not, after a character drinks, or does something they shouldn’t, they panic about what their parents will do once they find out. This panic may lead them to increasingly dangerous situations. For example, in OTH, Nathan is drinking, and then goes out to drive his girlfriend’s car. When he crashes it into another car, he realizes the trouble he is in, and leaves the scene of the accident; thus potentially getting him in even more trouble. I realize that TV is in no way an accurate depiction of all life aspects, and it is “only TV”, but I think Nathan should have faced the consequences right away, because by running from the scene, he only put himself in danger of being caught, or arrested. Again, though, I’m reading too much into it.

## Read this stanza from "The Raven." Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, Soon again I heard a tapping something louder than before. "Surely," said I, "surely that is something at my window lattice; Let me see, then, what thereat is and this mystery explore– Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore;– 'Tis the wind and nothing more." This stanza contributes to the suspense of the poem because a) the reader knows what is making the noise while the speaker does not. b) the speaker and the reader wait again to find out what is making the noise. c) the tapping gets louder, which foreshadows that the noise is made by a bird. d) the wind gets stronger and makes more noise against the speaker’s window.

## An object is moving north at a constant speed. A force of 5 N begins to push the object east at the same moment that a force of 5 N begins to push it west. What will happen to the object?

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

## 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.

Hope this helps

## Ryan realizes that his heart is beating faster than usual the moment jenna walks into the classroom. he wonders whether he has a crush on her. this reaction is best explained by the _____.

The correct match would be:

1. Cerebrum – responsible for speech, emotion, and memory
2. Cerebellum – responsible for muscle coordination and balance
3. Brain stem – responsible for involuntary muscles like the heart

The brain can be divided into three main parts:

1. Cerebrum: It is the largest part of the brain. It can be divided into two halves termed as right and left hemisphere. It can also be divided into broad regions termed as lobes (frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobe).

The main functions of the cerebrum include control of voluntary muscles, interpret information received from sensory receptors (touch, vision, hearing, vision), reasoning, learning, emotions, and speech.

2. Cerebellum: It is located below the occipital lobe in the back of the brain. The main function of the cerebellum is the coordination and precision of voluntary actions and the maintenance of posture and balance of the body.

3. Brain stem: It connects the brain with the spinal cord. It consists of the midbrain, pons, and medulla oblongata. It helps in controlling and coordinating involuntary movements like the heart, lungs, swallowing, breathing, sneezing et cetera.

## Reflect for a moment on the political leaders in Latin America you have been learning about. What impact do you think the rulers had on the culture of their people? What influence did the culture have on the ruler?

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

## Your memory of the moment you heard about the planes crashing into new york’s twin towers on september 11, 2001 would be most appropriately termed a(n) _________ memory.

Rochelle’s erratic memory of her mediocre performance is most likely due to HINDSIGHT BIAS (Answer).

Hindsight bias refers to “an eye for predicting some events in life before they have even happened.” It is that leaning many people have to see events as more predictable than they are.

It is also common to listen to people saying that they knew or had the feeling about the outcome of an event. It is the same that happened with Rochelle, once she realized her real grades, she remembered how poorly she did in college; it says: ” She then started telling everyone she remembers being a pretty poor student”.

## At 20 miles per hour the average driver, from the moment he sees danger until he hits the brake, will travel about: 55 feet 88 feet 44 feet 10 feet

The equation for how temperature changes the resistance R is:

R=R₀(1+α(T-T₀)), where R₀ is the resistance at T₀=20°C, T is the temperature for which we want to calculate the resistance and α is the temperature coefficient for resistance.

The resistance of the copper wire increases by 18% or by 0.18, so the new value for the resistance is R=1.18*R₀.

T₀=20°C
=0.0068
R=1.18*R₀

Now we need to input that into the equation for resistance change and solve for temperature T.

1.18R₀=R₀(1+α(T-20)), R₀ cancels out,

1.18=1+α(T-20),

1.18-1=α(T-20), we divide by α,

0.18/α=T-20, we put 20 on the left side,

26.47+20=T

T=46.47°C

So the temperature on which the resistance of copper wire will increase by 18% is T=46.47°C.

## What are thermal plasmas? A) Plasmas that have particles that collide infrequently… B) plasmas that reach a temperature equal to their surroundings.. C) plasmas that do not reach thermal equilibrium…D) plasmas that only have a few particles ionized at any given moment.

Answer is: A. f > d > p > s.

Aufbau principle is a scheme used to reproduce the electron configurations of the ground states of atoms by successively filling subshells (orbitals) with electrons in a specific order.

Filling subshells in the following order: 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, 3d, 4p, 5s, 4d, 5p, 6s, 4f, 5d, 6p, 7s, 5f.

The azimuthal quantum number (l) determines its orbital angular momentum and describes the shape of the orbital.

s-orbitals (for example 1s, 2s) are spherically symmetric around the nucleus of the atom.

p-orbitals are dumb-bell shaped. l = 0,1…n-1, when l = 1, that is p subshell.

d-orbitals are butterfly shaped.

f-orbitals are similar to the d orbital, but cut in half (eight lobes instead of four).

## Why did Orson Welles read the radio broadcast War of the Worlds as if it were happening right that moment, rather than just reading the novel as it was written?

In 1938, the radio was the main means of mass communication. People kept their radios on to have access to news and entertainment, including music and soap operas.

Welles’ program on radio did not have such a large popularity as people believed for many years. Apparently, at the same time it was broadcasted, listeners would tune in to another show, a comedy one, on a different station. Welles, who did not lack creativity, might have chosen to broadcast War of the Worlds as a news report in order to create sensation and excitement. Perhaps, it was a way to draw listeners’ attention to his show.

For decades the broadcast was believed to have caused panic among people. But, currently, it is said that such panic was not real precisely because of the small number of listeners.

## You and your friends have probably either already begun to drive or soon will. Imagine for a moment that you’re a parent and your son or daughter is about to take the car out with his/her friends. What advice would you give him/her? Be specific.

Three signs of depression
– change in mood or behavior
– change in sleep or appetite
– lethargy

Three warning signs of suicide
– they are always talking or thinking about death
– have clinical depression
– putting affairs in order, tying up loos ends, changing a will

Things you should do if you want to help
– Take the person seriously, listen to them, maybe even try to ask what they are planning. But do not attempt to argue them out of it, instead let the person know you care and are listening.
– Avoid saying cheesy and over rated statements such as ” You have so much to live for” the main reason is because the whole reason most people try to commit suicide because they feel worthless and helpless and if you say things like this they are not going to trust what you have said or going to say. Instead try to see if they have sought professional help or are doing so currently.

## A fluent reader thinks about phrasing. To read aloud smoothly, a reader groups words that go together and takes a breath only after saying the complete phrase. If you were reading aloud from “Daughter of Invention,” which underlined words would you need to say together as a group? Check all that apply. 1)Her daughters would seek her out at night when she seemed to have a moment 2)Yoyo stormed out of that room and into her own. 3)She was a good enough Mami, fussing and scolding and giving advice 4)Important, crucial, final things, and here was their own mother, who didn’t have a second 5)“I kept telling you, one of these days my ship would pass me by in the night!”

Answer: A. Gordon should revise sentence 1 to provide specific details about what “struck” him as he first entered the room.

Explanation: In the given paragraph from Gordon’s personal narrative, we can see the description of how he started his studies to become a professional chef and how that was his dream since he was a kid, and watched his parents (that were chefs) cooking delicious things. But in the first sentence he says that he saw something that left him struck, he doesn’t explain what is that he saw, so he should revise that sentence to provide specific details.

## Which word correctly completes the sentence? The moment to observe the lunar eclipse has already __________. A. past B. passed

The correct answer is A. 15th

Explanation:

The phrase “Beware the ides of march” belongs to “Julius Caesar” which is one famous Shakespearean literary work, in this, this expression is used to warn Julius Caesar about a possible danger. The term “ides” refers to the 15th day of most months including October, May, July, and March, although this can also refer to the 13th day of other months. Additionally, it is believed this term is related to the Ancient Roman Calendar and derives from Latn. Considering this, it can be concluded the word “ides” which is the word in bold means “15th”.
