Question:
Two faulty machines, M1 and M2, are repeatedly run synchronously in parallel (i.e., both machines execute
one run, then both execute a second run, and so on). On each run, M1 fails with probability p1 and M2 with
probability p2, all failure events being independent. Let the random...

Homework Statement
For the system of Fig. 1, construct a complete state diagram showing all 16
states of the system. Your diagram should have 16 circles, numbered 0000
through 1111, connected with arrows showing which state each state goes to
after one tick of the clock. Interestingly, this...
Ball thrown into a vertical jet???
Homework Statement
Like any good physicist, I always have a ball in my pocket to throw into
the vertical jet of any fountain I happen to find. The result is entertaining (at least I think
so). Explain, with a sketch, what you expect to see (you need not...
Homework Statement
A uniform ladder length L stands upon the ground; the coefficient of friction there is μ .
It leans safely against a smooth (friction-free) wall with the base of the ladder at an angle
! to the horizontal. Jim is the same weight mg as the ladder, and so is Jim's friend...
Homework Statement
A popular pastime used to be to construct helter-skelters: tracks along which to
roll (without slipping) a ball (a marble say, or ball bearing). I made one that mimics a
fairground loop-the-loop (see attached .jpg). If the drop from start to base of the loop is D, and the top...
