This module provides practice problems designed to develop concepts related to fractional exponents.

We have come up with the following definitions.

  • x 0 1
  • x a = 1 x a size 12{ { {1} over {x rSup { size 8{a} } } } } {}
  • x a b = x a b size 12{ nroot { size 8{b} } {x rSup { size 8{a} } } } {}

Let’s get a bit of practice using these definitions.

Check all of your answers above on your calculator. If any of them did not come out right, figure out what went wrong, and fix it!

Now…remember inverse functions? You find them by switching the x and the y and then solving for y . Find the inverse of each of the following functions. To do this, in some cases, you will have to rewrite the things. For instance, in #9, you will start by writing y x 1 2 . Switch the x and the y , and you get x y 1 2 . Now what? Well, remember what that means: it means x y . Once you’ve done that, you can solve for y , right?

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
