SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram of initial conditions. Spacecraft A is initially 120 m from spacecraft B, moving towards each other on parallel paths. Both spacecrafts apply reverse thrust to reverse their motion after which they meet twice. Spacecraft A has initial velocity VoA= +25 m/sec and acceleration aA= -3 m/sec^2. Spa

A rock is thrown upward from ground level with initial upward velocity of 25 m/sec. The rock falls back down into a hole and strikes the bottom 35 meters below the ground surface. Find the maximum height reached and the total flight time.

A balloon is descending with a constant acceleration "a" less than 'g' weight of the balloon with the basket and the contents is W. What weight m of the basket should be released so that the balloon will begin to accelerate upwards with constant acceleration 'a' ? Neglect air resistance.

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters. On a frictionless table, mass M is attached to the free end of a spring whose force constant is k. The free end is located at the origin of an x axis. The other end of the spring is fixed. Now the mass is moved toward +x to position the free end at xm, and at that point is r

See attached file. On an inclined plane at angle b from horizontal, a frictionless block, mass m, is placed behind and in contact with a uniform cylinder of radius R and mass M. Released from rest, the two objects remain in contact as the block slides and the cylinder rolls down the plane. Find a, the acceleration down the p

See attached file. Mass m= 8 kg is suspended from a cord which passes over a frictionless pulley then wraps tengentially on the surface of a uniform cylinder, mass M= 12 kg radius R = .66 m, on a plane inclined at angle b= 25 degrees from horizontal. As the suspended mass descends it gives angular acceleration A to the cylind

A cord is wrapped on the surface of a uniform cylinder, of mass M=12 kg and radius R= .36 m. Released from rest with the cord vertically tangential to its surface and tied to a ceiling support, the cylinder descends with angular acceleration A as the cord unwinds from its surface.
