Graph a Line Given a Point and the Slope

In the following exercises, graph the line given a point and the slope.

( −3 , 4 ) ; m = 3 2


The graph shows the x y-coordinate plane. The x-axis runs from -12 to 12. The y-axis runs from 12 to -12. A line passes through the points “ordered pair -3, 4” and “ordered pair -1, 1”.

Solve Slope Applications

In the following exercises, solve these slope applications.

Slope of a roof A fairly easy way to determine the slope is to take a 12-inch level and set it on one end on the roof surface. Then take a tape measure or ruler, and measure from the other end of the level down to the roof surface. You can use these measurements to calculate the slope of the roof. What is the slope of the roof in this picture?

The figure shows a wood board at a diagonal representing a side-view slice of a pitched roof. A vertical line segment with arrows on both ends measures the vertical change in height of the roof and is labeled “4 inches”. A level tool is in a horizontal position above the board and above it is a line segment with arrows on both ends labeled “12 inches”.

What is the slope of the roof shown?

The figure shows a  diagonal side-view slice of a pitched roof. A ruler in vertical position is at the bottom of the roof segment and shows unit labels 1 through 8 and extends one further unit. A second ruler starts at the “7” label of the vertical ruler and extends horizontally until it hits the rising roof. The horizontal ruler has unit labels 1 through 11 and extends one further unit.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
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.

I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
