"A car accelerates from rest and travels for 4.98 s with a uniform acceleration of +1.50 m/s^2. The driver then applies the brakes, causing a uniform acceleration of -1.99 m/s^2. If the brakes are applied for 3.06s, how fast is the car going at the end of the braking period? And how far has the car gone?"
Hi. Here's my problem: "A tennis ball with a speed of 11.8 m/s is thrown perpendicularly at a wall. After striking the wall, the ball rebounds in the opposite direction with a speed of 8.51 m/s. If the ball is in contact with the wall for 0.00175 s, what is the average acceleration of the ball while it is in contact with the
Please help with the following problem. A force F applied to an object of mass m1 produces an acceleration of 3.00m/s^2. The same force applied to a second object of mass m2 produces an acceleration of 1.00m/s^2. (a) What is the value of m1/m2?.........I understand that a2/a1=1/3 --answer (b) If m1 and m2 were combine
A.) A wedge with mass M rests on a frictionless horizontal tabletop. A block with mass m is placed on the wedge. There is no friction between the block and the wedge. The system is released from rest. Calculate: i) the acceleration of the wedge ii) the horizontal and vertical components of the acceleration of the block.
A radar station detects an airplane approaching directly from the east. At first observation, the range to the plane is 360 m at 40 degrees above the horizon. The airplane is tracked for another 123 degrees in the vertical east-west plane. The range at final contact being 790 m. Find the displacement of the airplane during the p
SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters. A crate rests on a truck which is traveling at speed V= 26 m/sec down a hill inclined at angle b= 8 degrees. The coefficient of friction between crate and truckbed is f= .50. Find the shortest stopping distance such that the crate does not slide forward.
A man sitting in a cage is connected to a pulley system of three movable and one fixed pulley in the system shown in ATTACHMENT #1. He pulls down on a rope as shown, to raise himself and the cage. The man and cage have a total weight of 639 nt. Ignore friction as negligible. PART a. Find the force he exerts to move upward
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 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 child is twirling a 0.0120 kg ball on a string in a horizontal circle whose radius is 0.100 m. The ball travels once around the circle in 0.500 s. (a) Determine the centripetal force acting on the ball. (b) If the speed is doubled, does the centripetal force double? If not, by what factor does the centripetal force incre
Energy & centripetal force.Small mass slides down a circular surface, loses contact,and travels in free fall to ground impact.
Energy conservation, centripetal acceleration and force, and projectile. A circular pipe whose radius R= 10 m, has a frictionless surface. A small frictionless mass placed on its highest point, slides down to a point where it loses contact, then travels in free fall to impact on the ground. See the diagram in the attachment.
Projectile Motion: At what angle should the gun be aimed so when it is fired the target will be hit?
A hunter aim directly at a target (on the same level) 120 meters away. If the bullet leaves the gun at a speed of 250m/sec, by how much will it miss the target? At what angle should the gun be aimed so the target will be hit?
During a hockey game, a puck is given an initial speed of 12.00 m/s. It slides 54.00 m on the ice before it stops. What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the puck and the ice?
Shown from the top view are six blocks that are sitting at rest on rotating turntables. All of the turntables have the same rotation rate (i.e. same frequency). The masses of the blocks and how far out from the center they sit varies. The specific values are given in the figures. Which of the following statements are true abo
