1.) The gravitational force i.e., 5N acts as a net force on the ball during it's free fall.
F(during fall) = -5j --Answer
(vertical up ward direction considered as +ve direction and downward as -ve direction)

When ball strikes with the ground, it will apply the force on ground due to it's weight and change of momentum.
F = -5j - {m*v(1+e)/dt}j --Answer

Where, m = weight/g = 0.51 kg, v is the speed with which the ball strikes the ground, e.v is the factored speed by which the ball will bounce back, and dt is the time of contact of the ball with the ground.
After strike, if the ball stops, e = 0, if ball bounces back with same speed, e = 1, and if ...

Solution Summary

The solution includes calculations of force, distance, acceleration, and mass using Newton's 2nd Law.

Accodting to Newton's universal law of gravity, if the separation between to bodies is increased by a factor of three, the gravitational pull each has on the other will be X by a factor of Y ?

An airplane has a mass of 3.1 x 10^4 kg and takes off under the influence of a constant net force of 3.7 x 10^4 N. What is the net force that acts on the plane's 78-kg pilot?

You step into an elevator at the 10th floor and press the 2nd-floor button. The elevator accelerates downward briefly as it picks up speed. There are two forces acting on you: the floor pushing up on you and gravity pulling down. Compare these two forces while the elevator is accelerating downward. explain your answer in terms

If a cup of coffee has temperature 95 degrees Celsius in a room where the temperature is 20 degrees Celsius, then according to Newton'sLaw of Cooling, the temperature of the coffee after t minutes is T(t)=20+75e^(-t/50). What is the average temperature of the coffee during the first half hour?

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

The 6lb slender rod AB is originally shown at rest, suspended in the vertical position. A 1lb ball is thrown at the rod with the velocity v= 50ft/s and strikes the rod at C. Determine the angular velocity of the rod just after the impact. Take e = 0.7 and d= 2ft. (See attachment for diagram)

A roasted turkey is taken from an oven when its temperature has reached 185 Fahrenheit and is placed on a table in a room where the temperature is 75 Fahrenheit.
(a) If the temperature of the turkey is 156 Fahrenheit after half an hour, what is its temperature after 45 minutes?
(b) When will the turkey cool to 100 Fahrenheit

1. A rocket lifts off the pad at Cape Canaveral. According to Newton'sLaw of Gravitation, the force of gravity on the rocket is given by F(x)= -GMm/x^2
Where M is the mass of the earth, m is the mass of the rocket, G is a universal constant, and x is the distance between the rocket and the center of the earth. Take the radiu
