Find the distance between these points. Answer in units of cm. Question 2, chap 1, sect 1. part 1 of 2 10 points The radius of a small ball is around 3 . 11688 cm. The radius of a basketball is about 3 . 85 times larger. What is the ratio of the surface area of the small ball and a basketball? Question 3, chap 1, sect 1. part 2 of 2 10 points What is the ratio of their volume? Question 4, chap 1, sect 4. part 1 of 1 10 points A rectangle has perimeter 30 m. Express the area of the rectangle as a function A ( l ) of the length l of one of its sides. 1. A ( l ) = 15 l + l 2 2. A ( l ) = 30 + l 3. A ( l ) = 15 l l 2 4. A ( l ) = 15 l 5. A ( l ) = 30 l l 2 6. A ( l ) = 30 l + l 2 Question 5, chap 1, sect 5. part 1 of 2 10 points A perfectly spherical piece of metal is found at the bottom of a wishing well. The mass of the object is 2 kg and the radius is 0 . 09 m. What is its density? Answer in units of kg / m 3 . Question 6, chap 1, sect 5. part 2 of 2 10 points What would the weight of this object be if it has the same volume and were make of pure gold? The density of pure gold is 19300 kg / m 3 . Answer in units of N. Question 7, chap 1, sect 6. part 1 of 1 10 points To protect her new twowheeler, Iroda Bike buys a length of chain. She finds that its linear density is 0 . 63 lb / ft. If she wants to keep its weight below 1 . 7 lb, what length of chain is she allowed? Answer in units of ft. Question 8, chap 1, sect 6. part 1 of 1 10 points A water holding tank measures 110 m long, 42 m wide, and 12 m deep. Traces of mercury have been found in the tank, with a concen tration of 78 mg / L. What is the total mass of mercury in the tank? Answer in units of kg. Question 9, chap 1, sect 6. part 1 of 4 10 points It is given that r and s are distances with unit [L], t is a time with unit [T] and θ is an angle in radians....
