The period of a pendulum in seconds is given by T = 2π L g (for small displacements) where L is the length of the pendulum in meters and g = 9.8 meters per second per second is the acceleration due to gravity. My Seth-Thomas antique 1 schoolhouse clock needs T = 2 second and I can adjust the length of the pendulum via a small dial on the bottom of the bob. At what length should I set the pendulum? 8. The Cobb-Douglas production model states that the yearly total dollar value of the production output P in an economy is a function of labor x (the total number of hours worked in a year) and capital y (the total dollar value of all of the stuff purchased in order to make things). Specifically, P = axb y 1−b . By fixing P , we create what’s known as an ‘isoquant’ and we can then solve for y as...
