The inverse square law 2018-06-05 Amy pose la question :Question about inverse square law ; Hi, I'm trying to understand some nuances about this law and have been reading about it a lot online and trying out some homework for personal interest (hobby ) - not school related. I understand that the simple formula is ; 1/d^2 I was wondering about what appears to be an oddity to me, that I came across when I was working with a test example I found at this link ; http://www.softschools.com/formulas/physics/inverse_square_law_formula/82/ The problem that caught my interest was this one on that page ; "1) If a bright flashlight has a light intensity of 15.0 candela at a distance 1.00 m from the lens, what is the intensity of the flashlight 100.0 m from the lens?" So I have a few different questions about this, but the most important one is, what does it mean if we replace the "1" in ; 1/d^2 with a different value such as a ratio in the form of a decimal value, so instead we have something like this ; 0.75/d^2 ??? Does this ratio represent a curve then? I am thinking that the "1" in the normal formula represents a straight line Some of the links I was researching ; http://wisptools.net/book.php?c=3&s=2 http://www.softschools.com/formulas/physics/inverse_square_law_formula/82/ https://www.nde-ed.org/GeneralResources/Formula/RTFormula/InverseSquare/InverseSquareLaw.htmPenny Nom lui répond.

Monthly Pension 2018-05-28 Kenneth pose la question :Hello: I have a question regarding how the units cancel in the following: A company uses the following calculation to determine the monthly payment for its employees as they retire: 1.1% * average 5 years highest salary * years of service If an employee worked 33 years and his average 5 year salary is \$30,705.17, what is his monthly payment? I used the following to determine his monthly payment, but I am not sure how the units cancel especially the years. 1.1% * \$30,705.17 * 33 years divided by 12 months/year I determined his payment as \$928.83 per month, but the year units do not cancel unless the 1.1% is per year. Is the correct calculation 1.1%/year * \$30,705.17 * 33 years divided by 12 months/year so that the units cancel properly? The \$\\$30,705.17\$ is an average for 5 years of working. It is not \$30,705.17 per year. I thank you for your assistance.Penny Nom lui répond.

Converting inches to centimeters 2018-05-25 Jason pose la question :Hi! Is there a method to approximately convert inches to cm in my head without using a calculator? Thanks! JasonPenny Nom lui répond. Pre tax and post tax percentages 2018-05-22 Tom pose la question :Hi, I work in a clothes shop which can also do mail-orders. My Head Office has sent a report with which we can check the records we keep in store tally with those at HO. According to that report we have taken £2578.25 in orders, excluding VAT (20%), which would therefore be £3093.91 including VAT (2578.25+20%=3093.91). According to my records, we have taken £3179.32 including VAT, which would be £2543.45 excluding VAT (3179.32-20%=2543.45). Why is it that the difference between the VAT inclusive figures (3179.32-3093.91) is +£85.41, but the difference between the VAT exclusive figures (2543.45-2578.26) is -£34.81? Now, I can see from the report that 1 order has not been recorded by HO, and I know that our average order value is around £30, so the -£34.81 makes sense. But surely both figures should be a minus, regardless of whether they include VAT? I'm sure there is an obvious answer, but I just cannot see it! Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks, TomPenny Nom lui répond.
