A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Why is work described as Newton meters?

One definition of work is "Force acting through distance". The quantity of work is (force) multiplied by (distance through which the force acts). The 'dimension' of work is [Force] multiplied by [Distance]. "Newton" is a unit of force. "Meter" is a unit of distance. When you multiply a force measured in 'pounds', by a distance measured in 'feet', you get the amount of work done, measured in "foot-pounds". When you multiply a force measured in 'tons', by a distance measured in 'miles', you get the amount of work done, measured in "ton-miles". When you multiply a force measured in 'newtons', by a distance measured in 'meters', you get the amount of work done, measured in "newton-meters".


What is the unit that energy is measured in?

Energy is the ability to do work. It is measured in joules.


What unit is work done measured in?

Joules (J) This is because work is energy transferred, and energy is measured in Joules.


What instrument measures work?

There are different methods of measuring work. Work is defined as a change in state of energy from one form to another. Mechanical energy can be measured in horsepower, foot-pounds or their metric equivalent. This is measured with a dynamometer. Electrical energy is measured in watts, this is measured with a watt-ohm meter, or a volt-ammeter. Heat energy is measured with a thermometer, and potential energy can be measured with a calorimeter. For other types of energy there are different tools used to measure it. In order to determine work performed, the energy before the work is done must be measured, then the energy after the work is done is measured, then the work done can be calculated from the results.
