What is the optimal angle for a projectile to be launched at to maximize range? height? time?
The range equation is [math]R = \frac{v_0^2}{g}sin(2\Theta)[/math]. Thus, to maximize range, we need to get the maximum value of [math]sin(2\Theta) = 1[/math]. The resulting angle is 45 degrees. For height and time, the angle should be 90 degrees. Both of these are based on the initial vertical velocity; the maximum vertical velocity occurs when all initial velocity is in the vertical direction.
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 twice as slowly?

I haven't done enough fluid dynamics to be sure, but I can guess: for an ideal fluid the flow rate would change to 4Q (Q=Av) and for a non-ideal, viscous fluid, the flow rate would change to 16Q (Poiseuille's Law)? Less sure about the second one but either could be wrong. At least I don't actually have to do this for real.
I should have clarified the question a lot better.Consider a pipe with radius r.

Derive a formula for the acceleration of the blocks in a real atwood machine with two masses of mass [math]m1[/math] and [math]m2[/math]and a pulley in the shape of a uniform disk of mass [math]M[/math] and radius [math]r[/math]. The string is massless. Ignore friction.
