Problem 12-6

The position of a particle along a straight line is given by s = (1.5t 3 - 13.5t 2 + 22.5t) ft, where t is in seconds. Determine the position of the particle when t = 6 s and the total distance it travels during the 6-s time interval. Hint: Plot the path to determine the total distance traveled.

3/29/16 Marriage Continued ● Polyandry: having multiple husbands ○ Uncommon ○ Occurs occasionally around the Himalayas, Tibet, Nepal, South India, and Sri Lanka ■ Ideal in that region, but becoming less common ○ Fraternal polyandry: marrying men who are biological brothers ■ Ideal because there is a limited amount of land, so this keeps the land in one family ● Preserves the farm, as there is not enough land to be distributed among multiple male heirs ■ Sex is a tricky business ● The wife must make sure she does not favor one brother over the others ○ Sometimes a schedule is made ■ Collective paternity ● If a husband leaves the marriage, any children in that marriage will remain with the wife and the other brothers ○ Open polyandry: multiple husbands, and possibly multiple wives ■ Starts with a monogamy, and a second husband may be added later to fill an economic need ● The second husband may bring a woman he is already married to, and everyone is married to everyone ■ Group marriage, but not group sex Group Marriage vs. Polyamory ● Polyamory: being in love (and in a relationship) with multiple people ○ There is no secrecy; it is by nature very open ● Group marriage usually has more economic than emotional motivations Marriage Defined ● A culturally recognized committed relationship between people ● People publicly declaring affection (recognized by outside group) ● Classic Anthropological definition includes: ○ Culturally defined ○ Between a man and a woman of different families ○ Regulates sex ○ Legitimizes children ○ Establishes rights and obligations ● Marriage between women ○ Can happen in Nigeria and Sudan ○ Two women get married, and one takes on the masculine role of the husband (female husband) ○ How do they have children ■ A sperm donor is needed for the technical aspects of the process ● The man is not considered part of the family ● Paternity lies with the female husband ○ The women may have a sexual relationship, but not always
