physics
A steel wire with mass 25.0 g and length 1.35 m is strung on a bass so that the distance from the nut to the bridge is 1.10 m. Compute the linear density of the string.
chemistry
Carbon monoxide competes with oxygen for binding sites on the transport protein hemoglobin. $CO$ can be poisonous if inhaled in large quantities. A safe level of $CO$ in air is $50.$ parts per million $(ppm)$. When the $CO$ level increases to $800.\ ppm$, dizziness, nausea, and unconsciousness occur, followed by death. Assuming the partial pressure of oxygen in air at sea level is $0.20\ atm$, what proportion of $CO$ to $O_2$ is fatal?
chemistry
How do the formulas differ for molecular and ionic compounds?
computer science
The program given below determines whether a number n is prime by checking whether 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, . . . , n/2 is a divisor. If a divisor is found, n is not prime. A more efficient approach is to check whether any of the prime numbers less than or equal to $\sqrt{n}$ can divide n evenly. If not, n is prime. Rewrite the program below to display the first 50 prime numbers using this approach. You need to use an array to store the prime numbers and later use them to check whether they are possible divisors for n. ``` 1 public class PrimeNumber { 2 public static void main(String[] args) { 3 final int NUMBER_OF_PRIMES = 50; // Number of primes to display 4 final int NUMBER_OF_PRIMES_PER_LINE = 10; // Display 10 per line 5 int count = 0; // Count the number of prime numbers 6 int number = 2; // A number to be tested for primeness 7 8 System.out.println("The first 50 prime numbers are \n"); 9 10 // Repeatedly find prime numbers 11 while (count < NUMBER_OF_PRIMES) { 12 // Assume the number is prime 13 boolean isPrime = true; // Is the current number prime? 14 15 // Test whether number is prime 16 for (int divisor = 2; divisor <= number / 2; divisor++) { 17 if (number % divisor == 0) { // If true, number is not prime 18 isPrime = false; // Set isPrime to false 19 break; // Exit the for loop 20 } 21 } 22 23 // Display the prime number and increase the count 24 if (isPrime) { 25 count++; // Increase the count 26 27 if (count % NUMBER_OF_PRIMES_PER_LINE == 0) { 28 // Display the number and advance to the new line 29 System.out.println(number); 30 } 31 else 32 System.out.print(number + " "); 33 } 34 35 // Check if the next number is prime 36 number++; 37 } 38 } 39 } ```
