Question by catnip: Questions about the mystic tan or spray tan?
I’m 24, white as a ghost & burn REALLY easily. I’ve tanned (with tanning beds) in the past with poor results. I am considering doing a “Mystic Tan” or and at-home spray on tan. Questions are:

Will the a mystic tan OR spray on tan wash off when I shower?

Will it have to be applied everyday?

If if doesn’t have to be applied daily, how often will it have to be applied?

Will it look orangey/fake on someone very pale?

Thanks :)

Question by ra912: Where is the best neuroscience grad school program out there? and other similar questions.?
I’ve got a couple of questions about getting my grad degree in neuroscience. So, rather than flood the boards with questions, I’ll just ask them all here and hope for your insightful answers. :)

1. Which are the really good schools and programs for graduate training in neuroscience? (I’m not at all picky about locations)

2. Is there a difference between a degree in Neuroscience and other similar ones, like Brain and Cognitive Sciences?

3. I’ve got no research experience in neuroscience (not really an option here in the Philippines). Will that be a big problem? Could research experience in cognitive psychology be a possible substitute? Also, is a GPA of 3.6 (BS Psyc) good enough?

4. What does one do with a neuroscience grad degree, apart from research and teaching?

5. How big of a problem might I have with funding? I’ve got very little money of my own.

I plan on starting 5 years from now, if it makes any difference. I’d love to hear any other tips you might have for me too. :D

Question by Mani: URGENT SCIENCE PHYSICS QUESTIONS! 10 POINTS for explanation :)?
A normal 100W light bulb costs about 50p and lasts for 1000 hours.

An ‘energy-saving’ bulb only uses about 18W to produce the same amount of light. It costs £5.95, but it will last for 6000 hours (100W=0.1kW, and 18W = 0.018kW)

How much money would you save overall by using an energy-saving light bulb if electricity costs 7p per Unit (kW)
Show your calculations

- This question is very difficult because it is very confusing. As my answer, I got the normal bulb saving more money, but the question asks how the energy-saving bulb could save you. VERY CONFUSED!

If you know the answer, please explain how you got it, and you will get 10 points and get the ‘best answer’ status. Thank You in advance!

Best answer:

Answer by Orinoco
I think you have made an error in your calculations.

Using a 60 watt light bulb for one thousand hours consumes 60 kilowatt hours of electricity.

One energy saving bulb goes for 6000hrs at 18W for a cost of
£5.95

plus energy
7p X 18 X 6
=£7.56

Total
£13.51

By contrast…

Six normal 100W bulbs cost £0.50 X 6 = £3.00
plus energy
7p X 100 X 6
= £42.00

Total
£45.00

It is cheaper and greener to use a single (long life) energy saving bulb, rather than 6 normal bulbs.

You would save … well … you work it out.

Then for extra credit you could mention that you save money disposing of one energy saving bulb instead of 6 normal bulbs, transport and shipping costs, storage and handling, etc.

Question by klh.™ – he’s here 3.14.10: Physical Science Physics Questions?
1. Calculate the distance a plane flies on a 7.95-hour flight from Chicago to London. Assume a constant speed of 800.0 km/h.

2. Determine a skier’s velocity in kilometers per hour if it takes her 1.7 minutes to ski down a 1.67 km slope.

3. Calculate the average acceleration of a car that changes speed from 0 m/s to 15 m/s in 5 s.

4. Calculate how long it takes for a stone falling from a bridge with an average acceleration downward of 9.8 m/s2 to hit the water. The stone starts from rest and hits the water with a velocity of 12.3 m/s.

5. Identify the straight-line accelerations below as either speeding up or slowing down.
a. 0.75 m/s2
b. 24.8 m/s2
c.–3.9 m/s2

Best answer:

Answer by Poh
1. Distance = average speed x time taken

2. Velocity = distance / time

3. Acceleration = change in velocity / time taken

4. Using formula v = u + at, where v is final velocity, u is initial velocity, a is acceleration and t is time.
Re arranging gives, t = (v – u)/a and “u = 0″ since it starts from rest.

5. A negative acceleration means it’s slowing down.

Question by klh.<3: Physical Science Physics Questions?
1.Calculate the amount of work done when a grocery store stocker uses 120 N of force to lift a sack of flour 1.5 m onto a shelf.

2.Calculate the average power in kilowatts required to pull a car up a ramp if the amount of work is 250 kJ over a period of 45 s.

3.Calculate the mechanical advantage of a group of pulleys used to raise an engine from a car. The engine is raised 1.2 m with the pulleys when 4.8 m of rope is pulled through the pulleys.

4.Calculate the gravitational potential energy of a 95 kg rock at the top of a 45 m cliff. The acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m/s2.

5.Calculate the kinetic energy of a bicyclist traveling at 11 m/s. The total mass of the cyclist and the bike is 74 kg.

6. Calculate the efficiency of the following machines:

a. A lever is used to lift a 45 N rock. The applied force is 75 N.

b. A pulley system raises a 39 N log with an applied force of 45 N.

c. You do 425 J of work to push a 75 N box up a ramp until the box is 2.5 m above the ground.

Best answer:

Answer by azeenkm
1- work = force* distance = 120*1.5 J

2- power = work/time = 250/45 kJ/s=KW

3- mechanical advantage = 1.2/4.8

4- PE = m*g*h = 95*45*9.8 J

5- KE = (1/2)*m*(v^2) = (1/2)*74*(11^2) J

6-
a- eff = output/input = 45/75

b- eff = 39/45

c- work output = 75*2.5
eff = (75*2.5)/425
