Re: Ecology B/C

Just wondering, will I need to go super in-depth with all the nutrient cycles (oxygen, carbon, sulfur, rock, water, phosphorus, nitrogen)? I do understand it and have notes on it but is it something that is frequently on the test? Nutrient cycles do show up on almost all of the tests I have taken. ...

Re: Ecology B/C

I was just put on Ecology because of national tournament scheduling conflicts. I understand the basic concepts of pretty much everything in the rules and I'm trying to learn more. Do you think I will need to learn chemotroughs, and all the sub-classes such as methanogens, halophiles, and more? It i...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

I saw this question in a test on the test exchange and couldn’t figure it out. Can one of you help? A monatomic, ideal gas at 0C and 1 atm occupies 57.3L. It expands isothermally to 4 times its volume, is compessed isobarically to its original volume, after which it is returned to its original temp...

Re: Thermodynamics B/C

2.50 L of gas originally at 60 ̊C is warmed to 145 ̊C. 1. What is the new volume if the pressure remains constant? 2. Who named this law? 1) 1.99 L 2) Jacques Charles if you mean who the law was named after Shouldnt the gas expand? It should expand. I get 3.14L but there is technically only one sig...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Consider a pipe with radius r. If an ideal fluid is flowing through the pipe, how would the flow rate change if the radius was increased to 2r? If a non-ideal, viscous fluid is flowing through the pipe, how would the flow rate change if the radius was increased to 2r? Both fluids would go through t...

Re: How do you guys form your cheat sheets?

Size three font, arial narrow. The most narrow font in the smallest size that I can read (and that I think my printer can print) to allow for the most information on the cheat sheet. I usually use three columns to make the information readable (not stretching all the way across the page). As for ima...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Nah, I think rotational motion is fair game. I just haven't gotten to it yet >.> EDIT: For #1, in order for the ball, don't you have to apply a torque to it first though? You can assume that the gravity does all of the work, like it starts on an incline. Gravity and the normal force only apply tran...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Answer Corrections:|For the first two questions, you must take into account that the object is a rolling disk, rather than a sliding block. The disk has rotational kinetic energy as well as translational kinetic energy. Thus, the gravitational energy is equal to the sum of the rotational and transl...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Questions:|1. A uniform disk is rolled down a hill of height 11m. What is the speed of the disk when it reaches the bottom of the hill? 2. As soon as the disk reaches the bottom of the hill, it hits a horizontal surface of frictional coefficient 0.13. What is the acceleration of the disk? 3. A ball...
