The problem:
A projectile enters a resisting medium at x = 0 with an initial velocity Vo = 900 ft/s and travels 4in. before coming to rest. Assuming that the velocity of the projectile was defined by the relation V = Vo - kx, where V is expressed in ft/s and x in feet, determine the initial acceleration of the projectile.

Solution Preview

First, you need to solve the value of K. To do this, you need to set the energy equation that says:
E_initial=E_final
(1/2)mVo^2= (1/2)Kx^2 ...

Solution Summary

This solution is provided in less than 100 words and provides calculations for finding the initial acceleration of the projectile through the use of a total energy equation.

A projectile is launched vertically from the surface of the Moon with an initial speed of 1400 m/s. At what altitude is the projectile's speed three fifths its initial value?
Show all your work and calculations and the final answer.

A projectile of mass 20.2 kg is fired at an angle of 65.0 degrees above the horizontal and with a speed of 84.0 m/s. At the highest point of its trajectory the projectile explodes into two fragments with equal mass, one of which falls vertically with zero initial speed. You can ignore air resistance.
a) How far from the point

Scientists are experimenting with a kind of gun that may eventually be used to fire payloads directly into orbit. In one test, this gun accelerates a 5.0-kg projectile from rest to a speed of 4.0 x 10^3 m/s^2. The net force accelerating the projectile is 4.9 x 10^5 N. How much time is required for the projectile to come up to sp

A projectile is launched with an initial velocity of 2.8 m/s at an angle of 30 degrees above the ground. Assume there is no air resistance and that the acceleration due to gravity is g = 9.81 m/s^2. ??What is the maximum height the projectile will reach???

I need help with a simple experiment.
I'm trying to create an experiment that relates to curvilinear motion. However, I'm unsure how to set up an experiment and show all the calculations. Can someone help me with creating a simple experiment to show what curvilinear motion is and do those calculations I can make up the data
