## NatalieLove 4 years ago Help Asap I don't get it. I stands for 1.02

1. NatalieLove

2. eyust707

approximate?

3. eyust707

what are the instructions?

4. NatalieLove

In the following equation, T = , l stands for the length of the string in feet. Convert your 5 string lengths into feet by dividing by 12 (12 inches = 1 foot). Then, substitute each of these values into the given equation and solve for T (time for one period). Use 3.14 for π. Record these new measurements in the chart below.

5. NatalieLove

T=

6. NatalieLove

the length is 1.02

7. eyust707

so all five of you string measurements were 1.02 feet?

8. NatalieLove

no i only need one i did the other onew last week i just forgot how to do it

9. eyust707

type this into your calculaotr 2 * 3.14 * Sqrt(1.02/32)

10. NatalieLove

nothing measures 1.02 feet its 10 inches

11. eyust707

so your string measured 10 inches?

12. NatalieLove

yes

13. NatalieLove

but i had to calculate the in seconds and i got 10.2 so you divide it by 10 and get 1.02

14. NatalieLove

then plug 1.02 into the equation

15. eyust707

ok so 1 ft = 12 in.. therefore 10 in = 10/12 of a ft.

16. eyust707

the length of your string = 10/12 ft = .833333 ft

17. eyust707

use .833 ft as I

18. eyust707

now natalie if you dont mind me asking...

19. eyust707

what is it that you are measureing?

20. eyust707

21. sasogeek

eyust, you didn't just ask that... :| on OS...? wow lol, that's something

22. NatalieLove

a pendulum lol

23. eyust707

mm hmmm

24. eyust707

nat do you get it tho?

25. NatalieLove

no cuz i try to do it with the other answer i did a week ago and it doesn't match

26. NatalieLove

so if you do with 0.79 instead what do you get

27. NatalieLove

i got 0.785398163397448

28. eyust707

29. sasogeek

what are all the values of l in inches?

30. eyust707

I is in ft i believe

31. eyust707

"l stands for the length of the string in feet."

32. eyust707

retarded... lol but thats how they did it

33. NatalieLove

no its in inches lol

34. sasogeek

so then you're converting given length values in inches to l, which is length in feet... right?

35. NatalieLove

10 inches divide by 10 = 1.02 then you plug 1.02 into the equation where you see i goes 1.02

36. sasogeek

noooooo

37. sasogeek

10 inches =(10/12)ft =0.833

38. NatalieLove

39. NatalieLove

i being on problem for like 5 hours

40. eyust707

lol its 1.01.....

41. sasogeek

let x be the value of lengths in inches, hence converting to ft, x inches = (x/12)ft

42. eyust707

$2 * 3.14 * \sqrt{(10/12)/32 }$

43. NatalieLove

can you give me the hole #

44. NatalieLove

1.0134286

45. sasogeek

put the value of l in the equation and punch it into your calculator. mine isn't working so i can't participate in the calculation :(

46. sasogeek
47. NatalieLove

48. eyust707

yes

49. NatalieLove
