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?

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 …

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 …

Which excerpt from “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” best illustrates how Leon’s beliefs differ from those of Father Paul? “Well, I’m glad you understand. I hope I’ll be seeing you at Mass this week—we missed you last Sunday. See if you can get old Teofilo to come with you.” The priest smiled and waved at them as they drove away. Leon walked toward the old man’s bed. The red plaid shawl had been shaken and spread carefully over the bed, and a new brown flannel shirt and pair of stiff new Levi’s were arranged neatly beside the pillow. It was noontime now because the church bells rang the Angelus. They ate the beans with hot bread, and nobody said anything until after Teresa poured the coffee. Leon turned to look up at the high blue mountains in the deep snow that reflected a faint red light from the west. He felt good because it was finished, and he was happy about the sprinkling of the holy water; now the old man could send them big thunderclouds for sure.

Which excerpt from The Great Gatsby best indicates that Nick is not fully content with his life? He didn’t say any more, but we’ve always been unusually communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. Father agreed to finance me for a year, and after various delays I came East, permanently, I thought, in the spring of twenty-two. Instead of being the warm center of the world, the Middle West now seemed like the ragged edge of the universe—so I decided to go East and learn the bond business. I had a dog—at least I had him for a few days until he ran away—and an old Dodge and a Finnish woman, who made my bed and cooked breakfast and muttered Finnish wisdom to herself over the electric stove.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful) Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw. “Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.” A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong …
