#### Solutions

Chapter 1.11, Problem 9E
To determine

## To find:The equation given that the statement

Expert Solution

The equation is y=kst

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

y is proportional to s and inversely proportional as t

Concept used:

If the quantities x and y are related by an equation

y=kx

For some constant k0

That is y varies inversely as x or y is inversely proportional to x

The constant k is called constant proportionality

Calculation:

If the quantities y,s and t are related by an equation

yαst

y=kst

For some constant k0

That is y varies inversely t or y is inversely proportional to t

The constant k is called constant proportionality
