Imagine a radioactive source in the middle of a room. A detector is stationed 1 meter away from it, currently reading 10 R. You walk in holding a second detector. How close can you get to the source (in meters) before your detector reads 1 R?
we know variation of radioactivity occurs with distance by inverse square law, I proportional to (1/r^2).
therefore, I = K/r^2
I = 10R for r= 1 m, K = Ir^2 = 10R*1
therefore now, I = 1R, therefore r = = = =3.1623 m away from source.

A swimmer at a depth of 1 meter in a pool looks at a child standing on the edge of the pool. The child stands just at the water level 2 meters away. When the swimmer looks toward the child at an angle of 30 degrees from the vertical, the swimmer sees the very top of the child’s head.(Note: make sure you draw a diagram before doing this problem.) (a)Over what range of angles (measured from the vertical) can the...
1. Superconducting gravimeters are very sensitive and can measure gravitational changes of about 49/9 = 1.0 x 10-11 a. Jackson is standing behind a hay bale holding the meter when Joseph approaches the hay bale from the other side. How close to Jackson can Joseph get before g changes enough for the meter to detect his presence? [Assume Joseph has a mass of 80 kg and is moving very slowly and smoothly - it takes at least a minute to...
1. A 4-meter plank weighing 8 kg is lying on a dock with 2.71 meters of its length on the dock, and the rest of its length extending off the dock. If a child weighing 61.2 kg walks out onto the part of the plank extending off the dock, what is the maximum distance in meters that the child can walk on the plank from the edge of the dock before he falls into the water? 2. A man pulls...
do #5 you will need to look at #4 to understand how to do #5 4. The open-circuit voltage of a battery is 12 volts and it's internal (i.e., source) resistance is one ohm Using a load resistor as a heating element to extract maximal power from the battery to heat up a container of 1 cubic meter of water (to be used as a thermal reservoir for a steam engine). (a) How long (i.e., how many seconds) does it...
please do 4, and 5 4. The open-circuit voltage of a battery is 12 volts and it's internal (i.e., source) resistance is one ohm. Using a load resistor as a heating element to extract maximal power from the battery to heat up a container of 1 cubic meter of water (to be used as a thermal reservoir for a steam engine). (a) How long (i.e., how many seconds) does it take to bring that water from 32 degrees Celsius to...
Option 1 or 2. Option 1: Use the NOAA data set provided, to examine the variable DX32. DX32 represents the number of days in that month whose maximum temperature was less than 32 degrees F. The mean of DX32 during this time period was 3.6. Using Excel, StatCrunch, etc, draw a histogram for DX32. Does this variable have an approximately normal (i.e. bell-shaped) distribution? A normal distribution should have most of its values clustered close to its mean. What kind...
Help, I’m confused. Need help with these questions 9. Without moving the ground probe, find another location where the reading is 0. Continue to find additional points (approximately 8-10) until you can determine the line that connects the points. This line is called an equipotentia of the points on the line. 10.Once you have finished your first line (and not before), move the ground probe to another location. Then repeat the process to create a second line. 11.Create additional lines...

Write a C++ program that reads text from a file and encrypts the file by adding 6 to the ASCII value of each character. See section 5.11 in Starting out with C++ for information on reading and writing to text files. Your program should: 1. Read the provided plain.txt file one line at a time. Because this file has spaces, use getline (see section 3.8). 2. Change each character of the string by adding 6 to it. 3. Write the...
