How did the coastline of the Confederacy offer the South an advantage during the Civil War? A) It enabled the South to implement the Anaconda Plan. B) It gave the South complete control of the Mississippi River. C) Its length made it hard for the North to control. D) It shortness made it easy to defend against invaders.

[ad_1]

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:06 AM

Actually I disagree with A. The north implemented the anaconda plan not the south. I would say C. Because during the anaconda plan people started starving in the south. The north had blocked off all ships that went to deliver food or goods to the south. Of course the occasional smuggler got through but that wasn’t enough to feed the entire south. Their long coastline gave them the advantage because they managed to get some goods through. As well as to the Mississippi which also gave them ways to move goods.

The entire South did not succumb to the mystique of cotton. Based on this statement, which of the following is true A.Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry B. South Carolina devoted itself to coal C. Georgia continued to devote themselves to tobacco D. Kentucky cultivated tobacco.

[ad_1]

The correct answer is A) Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry.

The entire South did not succumb to the mystique of cotton. Based on the statement, what is true is that  Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry.

With no doubt, cotton was the fascination for many farmers in the Southern states. They were dedicated to growing cotton and they did as much as they could. From 1810 to 1850, slavery was an important part of the economy of the Southern states. They depend so much on the labor force of slaves. But no all the states were fascinated with this “cotton fever.” Other Southern states were known for other products. That was the case of  Virginia and North Carolina that continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry. South Carolina focused on the sugar plantations that were a good business too. Others states, such as Kentucky were renown because they bred and sold horses.

Use the Pythagorean theorem to answer this question. Becca paddles a boat from the south bank of a stream to the north bank. She paddles at a rate of 8 mph. The stream is flowing west at a rate of 6 mph. What is Becca’s actual velocity?

[ad_1]

Since a stream of water is perpendicular to the movement
of Becca, her boat must have been moving going at an angle of north east. Using
the Pythagorean formula, we can calculate for the resultant velocity, c.

c^2 = (8 mph)^2 + (6 mph)^2

c^2 = 64 + 36

c^2 = 100

c =
10 mph

A ship traveled for 4 hours heading west and for 5 hours heading north. If the total distance traveled was 119 miles, and the ship traveled 5 miles per hour faster west, at what speed was the ship traveling west

[ad_1]

To answer this problem, we will use the formula of
hypotenuse:

c^2 = a^2 + b^2

Where,

c = total distance traveled / displacement = 119 miles

a = distance traveled north = 5 hours * x mph =  5 x

b = distance traveled west = 4 hours * (x + 5) mph = 4 (x
+ 5)

Substituting to the equation:

119^2 = (5 x)^2 + [4(x + 5)]^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x + 5)^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x^2 + 10 x + 25)

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 x^2 + 160 x + 400

0 = 41 x^2 + 160 x – 13,761

x =[ – b ± sqrt (b^2 – 4ac)]/ 2a

x = [- 160 ± sqrt (160^2 – 4 * 41 * (– 13,761))] / 2 * 41

x = – 1.95 ± 18.42

x = -20.37 , 16.47

Since speed cannot be negative, therefore x = 16.47

Therefore the speed of the ship travelling west is:

x +
5 = 21.47 mph         (ANSWER)

B) Organized Freedom Rides in the South.

The Freedom Rides, which began in 1961,  were carried out by activists who rode buses to protest how the Supreme Court’s decision wasn’t being enforced, in regard to segregated busing policies.  (The Court had ruled that segregation in transportation was unconstitutional.)

A few years later, in the summer of 1964, the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), in cooperation with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), also launched a campaign called “Freedom Summer.”  The aim of the 1964 campaign was to get African Americans registered to vote.  The efforts focused especially on the state of Mississippi, where up until that point less than 10% of African American citizens were registered as voters.

Why did the African Americans move to the North?

[ad_1]

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. ”

Who explored North America and the artic

[ad_1]

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.

What prevents wind from blowing a straight line from the north pole to the equator

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7.

Explanation:

The given steps show that how the rocks are recycled from one form to another form due to certain factors like weathering over geological time scale which was explained by James Hutton and he termed this concept as the rock cycle.

The steps of the rock cycle in sequence according to the question are:

1.  Breakdown of rock by weathering into regolith- step 4

2.  Dumping and deposition of regolith in a reservoir- step  1

3.  Erosion and transportation of regolith by rain or wind- step  3

4. Cementing of the deposited layer to form sedimentary rock- step  5

5. Conversion of sedimentary rock to a metamorphic rock due to intense heat and pressure- step 6

6. Conversion of  metamorphic rocks to magma due to the melting of metamorphic rocks-
step 2

7. Conversion of magma to igneous rocks due to volcanic activities and cooling of magma-  step 7

Therefore sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7 is correct.

Well I live in Florida so; I can explain tourism has always had a large role in our history. During our development, tourism gave us the much needed boost in economy that we needed to get on our feet. People coming from all over to enjoy the oranges and warm sun and beaches was a large source of income for people all over. More people to boy products = a larger income. The ‘boom and bust’ is what im guessing was the time right before the stock market crashed. Americans were richer then ever, they took more vacations, they generally thought of themselves having a brighter economic future, which caused more spending, more vacations, more extravagance. This made Florida truly flourish for a time, becoming a hotspot for wealthy vacation homes. The Great Depression almost killed us.. many buisness owners had come to depend on tourism to make a living wage, but since the great depression loomed over everyone, no one took vacations. No one had extra money to spend. Many of those wealthy vacation homes went into foreclosure. The Floridian Economy tanked during this time, so bad we even feel ripple effects of it today, even though we have built up so much more.

Answer:

Your answer would be that the correct version of the sentence is the following one: My brother took out the garbage, and Motehr was very happy.

Explanation:

You should capitalize words such as Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, Son, Daughter when they are used in place of the person’s name. What is more, you should not capitalize them when they follow possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our). In the sentence above, Mother is capitalized because it is not preceded by any pronoun, while brother is not because it follows the possessive pronoun my.

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?

[ad_1]

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

But the fact is, Minorities in United States are not only African American and the latino/as but also the asian.

What is the capital of North Africa

To answer this problem, we will use the formula of
hypotenuse:

c^2 = a^2 + b^2

Where,

c = total distance traveled / displacement = 119 miles

a = distance traveled north = 5 hours * x mph =  5 x

b = distance traveled west = 4 hours * (x + 5) mph = 4 (x
+ 5)

Substituting to the equation:

119^2 = (5 x)^2 + [4(x + 5)]^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x + 5)^2

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 (x^2 + 10 x + 25)

14,161 = 25 x^2 + 16 x^2 + 160 x + 400

0 = 41 x^2 + 160 x – 13,761

x =[ – b ± sqrt (b^2 – 4ac)]/ 2a

x = [- 160 ± sqrt (160^2 – 4 * 41 * (– 13,761))] / 2 * 41

x = – 1.95 ± 18.42

x = -20.37 , 16.47

Since speed cannot be negative, therefore x = 16.47

Therefore the speed of the ship travelling west is:

x +

The north atlantic treaty organization is an example of ________. mutually assured destruction a bilateral treaty a multilateral treaty the domino theory deterrence

[ad_1]

Answer:  Checks and balances

Details:

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution lays out the process for treaties made by the United States with other nations.  That section of the Constitution says of the President, “He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur.”

The advice and consent of the Senate typically comes after the treaty has been negotiated by the President.  As reported by Justia (a legal information site), “The Senate’s role in relation to treaties is essentially legislative in character.”  In a Supreme Court decision in 1936, this was affirmed by the Court’s decision, which said, that the President “alone negotiates. Into the field of negotiation, the Senate cannot intrude” (United States v. Curtiss-Wright Export Corp., 1936).   However, for the treaty to become active, the President must secure approval by the Senate, with a two-thirds majority vote, as stipulated by the Constitution.

An article on the United States Senate’s own webpage concerning “Advice and Consent of the Senate” notes that this provision in the Constitution was connected to the overall idea of separation of powers that the founding fathers had in mind.  In The Federalist Papers (#75, #76), urging ratification of the Constitution,  “Alexander Hamilton argued that the provision afforded a necessary means of checks and balances.”
