• ### Can you find another one?

11 + 2 = 13 and 12 + 1 = 13....we all agree on. Using letters we have: ELEVEN PLUS TWO = TWELVE PLUS ONE Each arrangement is an anagram of the other!! Can you find another example of this? Regards.

I have a simple circuit that comprises of a 9V cell powering a small bulb. Using a multimeter, the voltage across the terminals of the cell is 8.5V. The bulb is fairly well lit as it is rated at 12V/5W. When I measure across the bulb I get a reading of about 5.5V. Does this mean the voltage drop is 5.5V or (8.5 - 5.5V)?? i.e. Does the bulb... show more

Does this mean the voltage drop is 5.5V or (8.5 - 5.5V)?? i.e. Does the bulb use 5.5V or 3V?? Also, I thought that it would measure the full 8.5V as it is the only load in the circuit, so wouldn't it drop the whole voltage? If I measure the current, what value would I expect? Very confused on this topic. Many thanks and gratitude to all who answer.

(can you help with this, answer says 11.7m/s) Part b is driving me insane. I've used Newton's laws, Hooke's law and kinematics combined with differential equations....all to no avail. Can someone help put this to bed for me? Thanks to all who offer useful insights.

• ### Solving Trigonometric Equations?

I have tried numerous methods to solve this and I've hit a wall with it. Solve : 2 cos (x + π/2 ) = sec(x + π/6) for x in the interval 0 ≤ x ≤ π. I've used double angles, products/sums...e.t.c. Can someone please point me in the right direction. Many thanks in advance for all genuine responses.

I have been told that not only does Norton use huge memory space, it is also needlessly expensive for the service you get. Also, I am led to believe that there are some excellent others out there like, Microsoft Security Essentials and A.V.G. which are free and offer great basic protection. Please advise as I would be hugely appreciative. Many thanks.
