# How do you calculate the angle of deflection of a plumb line assuming that it is pulled downwards by the mass of the earth 5.89 x 1024 and pulled horizontally by mountain mass of 6.399 x 1015 kg?

There is not enough information to answer the question. You need to know the distances between the centres of mass of the plumb bob and the two large masses. The plumb bob may be treated as a point particle, and the distance to the centre of the earth can be approximated by the average radius, but that still leaves the distance to the centre of the mountain.

### Lever is acted on at two different points by two different forces?

When a lever is acted on at two different points by two different forces, the lever will experience a net torque calculated as the product of the force and the distance from the axis of rotation. The lever will rotate in the direction of the greater torque applied. The equilibrium condition is when the sum of the torques acting on the lever is zero.

The freezing point of a solution can be calculated using the formula: ΔTf = i * Kf * m, where ΔTf is the freezing point depression, i is the Van't Hoff factor (for complete dissociation i = number of ions after dissociation), Kf is the cryoscopic constant, and m is the molality of the solution.

### What is the acceleration of a projectile at the peak of its trajectory?

Assuming negligible air resistance, the acceleration of a projectile near the Earth's surface is always the gravitational 9.81 m/sec/sec downwards, regardless of where in the trajectory the projectile is.

### Assuming no change in temperature and pressure calculate the volume of O2 in liters required for the complete combustion of 14.9 L of butane C4H10?

The balanced chemical equation for the combustion of butane is: 2C₄H₁₀ + 13O₂ -&gt; 8CO₂ + 10H₂O. This means it requires 13 moles of O₂ for every 2 moles of butane. The volume of O₂ needed would be (14.9 L * 13 mol) / 2 = 96.85 L of O₂.

### If you insert two electrodes in the water.will an Ameter show deflection.?

The electrodes will not pass a current unless there is a voltage applied between them. If a voltage source such as a battery or power supply is attached, then a current will flow and a meter will show a deflection. Water is not a good conductor of electricity. Pure, distilled water will pass a lower current than water that has impurities dissolved in it (assuming that other parts of the apparatus remain the same).

Assuming you can keep your feet on the ground, there should be no difference. Since the forces of gravity act vertically, they have no effect on things you're trying to do horizontally.

Assuming the room is rectangular, multiply length x width (both in feet).

Assuming the mass and density is known, divide the mass by the density.

### How does gravity affect object that are moving horizontally?

The force of gravity is the same, whether the object doesn't move at all, whether it moves horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or whatever. The force is about 9.8 newton/kilogram.Therefore, if no other forces act on the object, it will accelerate downward at a rate of 9.8 meters/second squared - again, no matter how the object is moving at any given time. Under gravity (and assuming no other forces are significant - such as air resistance), an object that initially moves horizontally will have the tendency to move in a parabola.
