**(a)** In the case of the wheelbarrow, the output force or load is between the pivot and the input force. The pivot is the wheelâ€™s axle. Here, the output force is greater than the input force. Thus, a wheelbarrow enables you to lift much heavier loads than you could with your body alone. **(b)** In the case of the shovel, the input force is between the pivot and the load, but the input lever arm is shorter than the output lever arm. The pivot is at the handle held by the right hand. Here, the output force (supporting the shovelâ€™s load) is less than the input force (from the hand nearest the load), because the input is exerted closer to the pivot than is the output.

Strategy

Here, we use the concept of mechanical advantage.

Discussion

An even longer handle would reduce the force needed to lift the load. The MA here is:

Astrology, that unlikely and vague pseudoscience, makes much of the position of the planets at the moment of oneâ€™s birth. The only known force a planet exerts on Earth is gravitational.

**(a)** Calculate the gravitational force exerted on a **4.20 kg** baby by a **100 kg** father **0.200 m** away at birth (he is assisting, so he is close to the child).

**(b)** Calculate the force on the baby due to Jupiter if it is at its closest distance to Earth, some **6.29e+11 m** away. How does the force of Jupiter on the baby compare to the force of the father on the baby?

Father’s gravitational force on the baby is:

Jupiter’s gravitational force on the baby is:

**(c)** What should be the father’s weight, so that he exerts the same force on the baby as that of Jupiter? *****this section is not included in the Reference material*

Discussion

Other objects in the room and the hospital building also exert similar gravitational forces. (Of course, there could be an unknown force acting, but scientists first need to be convinced that there is even an effect, much less that an unknown force causes it.)Reference : OpenStax College,College Physics.

PPI can be calculated from knowing the diagonal size of the screen in inches and the resolution in pixels (width and height). This can be done in two steps

Using the Pythagorean theorem, for 3 different screen resolutions:

Using the Diagonal Resolution from the previous formula we calculate the PPI for 3 corresponding screen sizes :

**Results:**

**10.1** inch tablet screen of resolution **1024×600** : **117.5PPI****21.5** inch PC monitor of **1080p** resolution : **102.46PPI****27** inch PC monitor of **1440p** resolution : **108.78PPI**
