# A 56.0kg ice skater spins about a vertical axis through her body with her arms horizontally outstretched, making 2.50 turns each second. The distance from one hand to the other is 1.5m. Biometric measurements indicate that each hand typically makes up about 1.25 % of body weight. Part A) horizontal force must her wrist exert on her hand F=150N Express the force in part (a) as a multiple of the weight of her hand?

Net force = 129.4, Force as multiple of weight of her hand = 18.84

Explanation:

Given Data:

Total body weight = 56.0 kg   ;

no. of turns = 2.5/second        ;

hand to hand distance = 1.5m ;

weight of hand = 1.25% of body weight ;

Solution:

mass of hand = *56 = 0.7kg ;

radius = d/2 = 1.5/2 = 0.75m     ;

Now we need to find velocity, as we know that velocity can be calculated by dividing distance by time

v = d/t = = 11.775 m/s or 12 m/s;

a.

The formula to calculate force is given as

F = mv²/r = (0.7*11.775²)/0.75 = 129.4 N

b.

To calculate force as multiple of weight on her hand, we need to calculate the gravitational force W on her hand first.

W = gm = 9.81 * 0.7 = 6.867 N

Now the wieght on her hand can be represented by

= 129.4 / 6.867 = 18.84

Under normal conditions of temperature and pressure, the gaseous state of a liquid is called _______. A. vapor
B. water
C. smoke
D. ice

The gaseous state of a liquid is called as vapor under normal conditions of temperature and pressure.

Explanation:

Vapor is a form of substance floating in air where increasing or decreasing the temperature and pressure changes the state of the substance into gas or liquid.

For example : consider water where heating it to the boiling point makes it as water vapor and reducing its temperature makes it as ice.

A) vapor

Why isn't the earth the same distance from sun all year long?

Earth's orbit is elliptical

Explanation:

The earth's orbit is not a straight circle and the sun is not in the very center of it. The orbit is more of a wonky oval with the sun closer to one side of it than the other causing the earth's distance from the sun to vary throughout the year.

Because the planets (and everything else in the solar system) don't travel in circular orbits with the sun at the center of the circle.

They travel in elliptical orbits, with the sun at one focus of the ellipse.

Different points on the ellipse have different distances from the focus where the sun is.
