Answer #1

An arch shaped monument is often mistaken to be parabolic in
shape. In fact, it is a catenary, which has a more complicated
formula than a parabola. The arch is 475 feet high and 456 feet
wide at its base. Complete parts (a), (b), and (c).
(a) Find the equation of a parabola with the same dimensions.
Let x equal the horizontal distance from the center of the arc.
(b) The table gives the height of the arch at various...

A dam which is v = 21 meters tall has an outflow gate.
The gate, height u = 4 meters, has a shape given by the
region under the equation, y = u −
x2, y ≥ 0. Note that y is the
vertical distance from the bottom of the gate in meters, and
x is the horizontal distance from the middle, measured in
meters.
If the entire dam is under water (That is, the surface of the water
is...

Equations of motion are used to describe the velocity (speed and
direction) as well as distance travelled by projectiles when they
are launched or thrown. The following equation is used to model

a recreational lake created by an artificial damn has
the shape of a truncated cone. if the depth of water in the lake
(h) is 0 the radius of the lake would be r_1= 300meters. the radius
of the lake at it's surface is given in terms of the lake's depth
via the following relation r_2 = 300 + h.
a) given that the volume of a truncated cone is given
by the formula pi/3 × h(r(2/1)+ r(2/2) + r...

Two wells are drilled 50 m apart in an aquifer which has K =
0.05 cm /s. The original height of the phreatic surface above the
aquiclude is 12.2 m. The wells are pumped at a rate of 10 L/s. It
is estimated that the effect of the pumping extends a distance of
600 m from the center of the well group. Determine the shape of the
drawdown curve. The well diameters are 0.5 m.
