The procedure of Question 15 for determining the instantaneous velocity of the car can be carried out for a whole set of different times and the resulting values of v﻿﻿x can be plotted against t to form a graph. This has been done in Figure 28, which shows how the velocity varies with time. At time t = 0 s, the car has zero velocity because it starts from rest. At later times, the velocity is positive because the car moves in the direction of incre

In the accentual-syllabic system, the dominant tradition in English, both accents (stresses) and syllables are measured and counted. In accentual metre, the stresses are counted and the syllables can vary. In syllabic metre, the syllables are counted, while the stresses can vary.

Here is pentameter, the line of fi

The range of frequencies that are referred to as 'microwave' is not exactly defined (or, rather, slightly different ranges are used in different contexts), but roughly speaking it is from about 200 MHz to 50 GHz. [Remember that MHz stands for megahertz, which is 1,000,000 Hz (106 Hz) and GHz is gi
