Solution Summary

The solution provides detailed calculations, explanations and a drawing for the problem.

A boat is pulledinto a dock by a rope attached to the bow of the boat and passing through a pulley on the dock that is 1m higher than the bow of the boat. If the rope is pulled in at a rate of 1m/s, how fast is the boat approaching the dock when it is 8m from the dock?

2 (a) If A is the area of a circle with radius r and the circle expands as time passes, find dA/dt in terms of dr/dt
(b) Suppose oil spills from a ruptured tanker and spreads in a circular pattern. If the radius of the oil spill increases at a constant rate of 1m/s how fast is the area of the spill increasing when the radius

(a) Determine the speed of the boat when there is 13 feet of rope. What happens to the speed of the boat as it gets closer to the dock?
(b) Determine the speed of the rope when there is 13 feet of rope. What happens to the speed of the ro

A uniform rope of mass m and length l is attached to a block of mass M. The rope is pulledwith force, F. Find the tension at distance x from the end of the rope. Neglect gravity.

Relative Velocity Problem
Consider a boat on the West bank of a river of width D=1664 meters to be at the origin of an x,y axis system with the 0° direction East along the +x axis.
The river water runs South with velocity vector W= 3.9 m/sec at 270°.
At coordinates (1200, -390) is a dock on an island. At coordinates (16

A skier is pulled by a tow rope up a frictionless ski slope that makes an angel of 12 degree with the horizontal. The rope moves parallel to the slope with a constant speed of 1.0m/s. The force of the rope does 900J of work on the skier as the skier moves a distance of 8.0m up the incline. (a) If the rope moved with a constant s

Joe enjoys fishing & goes out about 20 times per year. One day, Sara told him that fishing is too expensive of a hobby. She thinks he should stop going because she calculated that it costs about %28.75 for every fish he catches because he usually catches about 20 fish per trip. She says it would be much cheaper to buy fish fr

A sledge loaded with bricks has a total mass of 18.0 kg and is pulled at constant speed by a rope. The rope is inclined at 20.0° above the horizontal, and the sledge moves a distance of 20.0 m on a horizontal surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the sledge and surface is 0.550.
(a) What is the tension in the ro
