Real World Radical Formulas
This week’s assignment involved solving real work radicals. We were required to solve two problems on pages 605 and 606. While this assignment was not easy for me, I feel like I most definitely learned something new. The problems involve sailboat stability and speed. I will be looking for the capsize screening value and the sail power of the sailboat.

Page 605 Problem 103
Sailboat Stability. To be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening value C should be less than 2. For a boat with a beam (or width) b in feet and displacement d in pounds, C is determined by the function:

C = 4d-1/3 b
A)Find the capsize screening value.
Displacement = 23,245
Beam = 13.5
C = 4(23245)-1/3 (13.5)Values plugged into the formula.
C = 4(.035)(13.5)Applied exponent first.
C = 1.4(13.5)Multiplication left.
C = 18.9Capsize Screening Value.
B.) Solve for D.
C = 4d-1/3 b
4d-1/3 b = cFlipping equation so d is on the left.
4d-13 b = cDivide both sides by 4b.
4b 4b

(d-1/3)3 = c3Raise all sides to the 3rd power.
4b

D = c3 Formula solved for D.
64b3

Page 606 Problem 104
Sailboat Speed. The sail area-displacement ratio S provides a measure of the sail power available to drive a boat. For a boat with a displacement of d pounds and a sail area of A square feet S is determined by the function:

A.)S = 16Ad-2/3
Sail Area = 810 Square Feet
Displacement = 23245
S = 16(810)(23245)-2/3Values plugged into formula.
S = 16(810)(.00122776)Exponent applied first.
S = 12960(.00122776)Multiplication left.
S = 15.9Formula solved for sail power.
B.)Write d in terms of A and S.
S = 16Ad-2/3
16Ad-2/3 = SMoved d to the left of the equation.
16Ad-2/3 = SDivide both sides by 16A
16A 16A

...In her book, The RealWorld of Technology (1999), Ursula M. Franklin argues that technology has a disruptive effect on humanity. If left-unchecked technology will eventually destroy society as we know it. Franklin illustrates her point by focusing on the effects technology has had on society and cultures in the past. She uses examples from China before the Common Era to the Roman Empire, with a majority of examples coming form the last one hundred and fifty...

Dell Inc. was founded in 1984 by Michael S. Dell, who developed the supply chain formula, which would end up making Dell one of the world leaders in PC sales. When applying the resource-based view and the VRIN-framework to Dell, it becomes clear that Dell has a definite competitive advantage. Dell’s success-formula combines several resources which are “unique, valuable to customers, and...
