4. A toy car runs off the edge of a table that is 1.100 m high. The car lands 0.400 m from the base of the table.?

... pulling downwards with an acceleration of 9.8 m/s^2 so, 1.100 = 0*t + 1/2 * 9.8 * t ^2 or, t^2 = 1.1 / 4.9 so, t ~= 0.474 seconds...

7. an object traveling 1,100 feet per second?

The distance in feet = 27500000000*365824*3600*186000*5280, taking c = 186000 miles per second Time taken in seconds = (27500000000*365824*3600*186000*5280)/1100 = (27500000000*365*24*3600*186000*4.8) s = [(27500000000*365*24*3600*186000*4.8 /(365*24*3600)] = (27500000000...

10. Convert cm to angstrom?

Does this help .. 1\$ = 100c .. so 1c = (1/100)\$ .. .. do the same with A and cm .. 1A = 1^-8 cm.. 1cm = 1/(1^-8) = 1.0^8 A so .. 1.22^-5 cm = 1.22^-5 x 1.0^8A .. .. ►1.22^3 A
