If an unknown element has a mass of 17 and contains 6 neutrons, how many protons does it have ?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

The mass number is the total number of protons and neutrons within an atom and since we know that the unknown element has 6 neutrons, we can simply subtract the number of neutrons from the mass number to get the number of protons.

17 - 6 = 11

There are 11 protons in this unknown element.


Extra:

The number of protons (+) and electrons (-) are equal in a neutral atom so since you know that there are 11 protons you also know that there are 11 electrons. On the periodic table, the element with 11 electrons is Na or Sodium.


Hope this helps! :)

What’s the mass of an object that weighs 32 newton’s

Answers

Answer:

m

3.878

Kg

Explanation:

By Newton's second law,

F  = m a

So, W = m g

 m = W /g

m=32/ 8.25  Kg or 3.878  Kg (approx)

An object with mass 3.5 kg is attached to a spring with spring stiffness constant k = 270 N/m and is executing simple harmonic motion. When the object is 0.020 m from its equilibrium position, it is moving with a speed of 0.55 m/s.(a) Calculate the amplitude of the motion._____ m(b) Calculate the maximum velocity attained by the object. [Hint: Use conservation of energy.]______ m/s

Answers

Answer:

Part a)

A = 0.066 m

Part b)

maximum speed = 0.58 m/s

Explanation:

As we know that angular frequency of spring block system is given as

here we know

m = 3.5 kg

k = 270 N/m

now we have

Part a)

Speed of SHM at distance x = 0.020 m from its equilibrium position is given as

Part b)

Maximum speed of SHM at its mean position is given as

One side of the roof of a building slopes up at 32.0°. A roofer kicks a round, flat rock that has been thrown onto the roof by a neighborhood child. The rock slides straight up the incline with an initial speed of 15.0 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the rock and the roof is 0.355. The rock slides 10.0 m up the roof to its peak. It crosses the ridge and goes into free fall, following a parabolic trajectory above the far side of the roof, with negligible air resistance. Determine the maximum height the rock reaches above the point where it was kicked.

Answers

Answer:

Explanation:

When rock is moving up along the inclined plane then the deceleration of the rock is given as

now we have

so final speed at the top of the ramp is given as

now at this point the vertical component of the velocity is given as

Now maximum height from the ground is given as

A 1.8-m uniform rod is being used to balance two buckets of paint. One pucket is full, but the other is mostly empty, and has only 0.25 the inertia of the full bucket. How far away from the full bucket is the center of mass of the system located?

Answers

Answer: 0.36 m

Explanation:

By definition, the x coordinate of the center of mass of the system obeys the following equation:

Xm = (m1x1 + m2x2 + …….+ mnxn) / m1+m2 +……+ mn

Neglecting the mass of the rod, and choosing our origin to be coincident with the location of the full bucket, we can write the following expression for the X coordinate of the center of mass (Assuming that both masses are aligned over the x-axis, so y-coordinates are zero):

Xm = 0.25 mb . 1.8 m / (1+0.25) mb

Simplifying mb, we get:

Xm= 0.36 m (to the right of the full bucket).
