Memeory Lane 2

Although the existence of any such superior race has been generally rejected, the idea was revived by Hitler for political purposes, and became part of the anti-Semitic doctrine of the Nazis. Aryanism n. belief in an ‘Aryan Race’ and esp. in the theory of its racial and cultural superiority. Aryanization n. the act of Aryanizing, the fact of being Aryanized.

The meme (courtesy of Jul):

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag zero people.

The book was The new shorter Oxford English dictionary, volume 1.

Those aren't sentences! keep reading 'till the end of the angle table, and list the first three complete sentences- way more fun.

p.s. I'm impressed that you young'uns still use a paper copy of the rubber bible.

Consider the displacement function s(t) = t^2 + 2t - 3 cm for a particle P moving along a straight line. 1) Find the displacement on the time intervals given in the table and copy and complete the table. 2) Find the average velocity on the time interval t = 1 to t = 1 + h and then find lim (h->0) (s(1+h) - s(1)) / h.
