A woman’s glasses accidently fall off her face while she is looking out of a window in a tall building. The equation relating $h$ , the height above the ground in feet, and $t$ , the time in seconds her glasses have been falling, is $h=64-16{t}^{2}.$

(a) How high was the woman’s face when her glasses fell off?

(b) How many seconds after the glasses fell did they hit the ground?

Astrophysical problem

A very interesting application of quadratic equations is determining the length of a solar eclipse (the moon passing between the earth and sun). The length of a solar eclipse is found by solving the quadratic equation

${\left(a+bt\right)}^{2}+{\left(c+dt\right)}^{2}={\left(e+ft\right)}^{2}$

for $t$ . The letters $a,b,c,d,e,$ and $f$ are constants that pertain to a particular eclipse. The equation is a quadratic equation in $t$ and can be solved by the quadratic formula (and definitely a calculator). Two values of $t$ will result. The length of the eclipse is just the difference of these $t$ -values.

The following constants are from a solar eclipse that occurred on August 3, 431 B.C.

$\begin{array}{ccccccc}a& =& -619& & b& =& 1438\\ c& =& 912& & d& =& -833\\ e& =& 1890.5& & f& =& -2\end{array}$
Determine the length of this particular solar eclipse.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?

The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
