The following equation can be used to calculate the acceleration that the block experiences:
y = v0 * t + 0.5 * a * t^2.
Since the block starts at rest we know that ...

Solution Summary

This solution calculates the acceleration and mass of an object by taking into account gravity and tension.

What is the magnitude of the acceleration that this force5.0 x 10³ N will cause when applied to a car with a mass of 1.1x10³Kg
Then calculate the final speed of the car (above) assuming that it was standing still initially and that the force of 5.0 x 10³ N is applied for 6.0s
Why would the car take longer to reach the c

Three masses are connected as shown in the attached figure. The masses of mA, mB, and mC are 2.00 kg, 4.00 kg and 6.00 kg respectively. Mass A experiences a frictional force of 10N, andmass B experiences a frictional force of 15.0N. Assuming the string rides without friction over the rod at the table's edge, calculate the accel

A uniform electric field produces an acceleration (10 m/s^2, 10 m/s^2,0) at (1 m, 1m, 1m) for a -5 micro Coloumb charge of mass 10 g. Write the electric field at all points in space. (Hint: it would be a good idea to know what uniform means here).

In a setup if the mass (M) of the glider is 300 grams and the small mass (m) is 27 grams (the two masses are connected by the string), calculate what the acceleration of the system will be when the small mass is free to fall with no friction in the system? include units.

An 9.00 kg point massand a 12.0 kg point mass are held in place 50.0 cm apart. A particle of mass (m) is released from a point between the two masses 20.0 cm from the 9.00 kg mass along the line connecting the two fixed masses.
