Can't help it. You're just too kewt with those beakers and science-type stuff things. :love:

A man is assembling a trade caravan to cross the desert. It must be comprised of three carts tied together with lengths of rope cut from a single coil of rope, and pulled by a very strong camel. The first cart must carry 203.0765 mol of gold, the second must carry 50L of water, and the third must carry 70kg of wood. If the camel is capable of exerting 900 N of force, how much tensional force must the ropes be able to withstand? Assume the molar mass of Ag is 196.97 g/mol, that the density of water is exactly 1000kg/m3, and that the µ (coefficient of friction) value between the cart wheels and the dry, cracked ground is 0.3.

Yeah. N is newtons of force.

Force = mass times acceleration.

1N of force is the amount of force necessary to accelerate 1kg of mass at 1 m/s^2. Therefore it is equivalent to 1kg*m/s^2.

1N/1kg = 1m/s^2. Follow?


Edit: It occurs to me now that you may in fact be trying to give me the answer to the question rather then questioning my metric units.

IS this the case?

That's a very specific amount. Why not just say 40 kilos?

Indeed, Z2, this IS the case. :haha:

EDIT: I took A-Level physics and maths, so do understand what SI units are and what the symbols/letters stand for.

That would be silly because it's 108 g mol-1. Au is gold :wink:

Damnit. I always get those two mixed up, for some reason.

We had to make problems for our Physics class, and I really wanted to mess with my classmates.

Well, you're right. So you actually went through and solved it in the 5 minutes between our posts? Or did you just know that the pulling force would be stronger than the tensions?

Just looking at the numbers, I made an educated guess. :haha:

Nothing is in it
But something is in it
Nobody is in it
But somebody is in it
If you have it
You and I are in it
What is it?

Power?

Love?


UNderstanding?
