NS FL #6 C/P Q48

Hi! I'm a little confused as to how we know delta g has decreased in this question? I understand that the mutations make it more likely to unfold, and hence a greater -ve delta g value. but isn't this considered an increase in delta g as opposed to decrease as in the correct answer choice? Thanks fo...

NS FL #5, CARS 13

Hi --- doesn't the author tell us how the ill suited British white ties are still used among the upper class in India? I was confused why the correct answer says "nonetheless failed to adapt for generations." Doesn't this imply that the culture did not last? Would appreciate any clarification. Thank...

NS FL #5 Chem/Phys Q40

why is the answer here evaporation and not condensation? From my understanding, if the latent heat is decreasing at the ocean (heat energy is given off to the environment), isn't this condensation? evaporation would imply the ocean absorbing (not releasing heat energy) and turning into water vapor. ...

NS FL # 5 Chem/Phys Q5

Hi. I'm thinking that failure to account for air resistance in this case, would overestimate the velocity of the pitch and hence, over estimate the efficiency of energy transfer from arm to baseball (to allow the ball to have that "increased/higher" velocity). why does the answer predict the efficie...

NS FL #5 Chemistry/Phys Q 2

Hi -- between B and C for this question, why is B a better choice? the velocity of the pitch decreases because of the reduced amount of energy transfer through the torso.. but doesn't that happen because of the uncoupling i.e., larger amounts of energy dissipated by the body during follow through? I...

"In Bernoulli's the height actually goes down in the positive direction because of the way that formula is derived. Be sure to remember that larger y corresponds with greater depth." This is what I was missing! thanks so much!!

Re: NS FL #4 Chem/Phys Q58

thanks for this clarification! Assuming up is +ve and down is -ve: In the first equation: - g(h2) = (1/2) (v2)^2 both g and h would be -ve; that is g = -10m/s and h2 = -5m. though the explanation says to use 5m (positive) while using a negative g. why is this? (In this calculation, the sign's ultima...

NS FL #4 Chem/Phys Q58

Hi, I'm having trouble with the sign convention used in this Qs. 1. -gy2 = 1/2 v2^2 why do we use a negative g here? also, shouldn't y = 5m also be negative since it is 5m below the surface of the tank (the arbitrary baseline or 0m)? 2. d = vit + 1/2 gt2 again, why is 20m here used assigned a negati...
