Force of friction and pulling apart two books.

Two identical books each with k pages are placed on the table in a way that the each page of book A is between the pages of book b. The high half of book B is on top of book A. Given that 1) the coefficient of static friction on the surface of card A is mu; 2) Each page of the book has a mass of m; 3) Book A does not move f

Force and Center of Mass

A person holds a bowling ball in his hand with his forearm horizontal. The bowling ball has a mass of 5.10 kg and the mass of the forearm is 1.50 kg. The bicep muscle is attached to the bone of the forearm at a point d=3.00 cm from the elbow joint and the bowling ball is L=35.0 cm from the joint. Model the center of mass of the

Archimedes' Principle on a Body in Water

Hi. Can someone please walk me through how to do the following problem? A person with a mass of 81 kg and a volume of 0.089 m^3 floats quietly in water. (a) What is the volume of the person that is above water? (b) If an upward force F is applied to the person, the volume above water increases by 0.0018 m^3. Find the fo

Euler Equation

Please see the attached PDF file. I would prefer a solution in PDF format. Thank you!

Physics: Application of the principle of conservation of energy

Using the principle of conservation of energy: (a) determine the speed of 3.00kg object just as the 5.00kg object hits the ground. (b) find the maximum height to which the 3kg object rises. (c) How will this mass as it descends rise the mass up as v=0 (m1 and m2 both have a v=0) (solve for y) I have the answers to (a

Find the speed of the bullet after it has passed through a block.

A 3gm bullet with a speed of 300m/sec is fired on a 400gm block initially at rest. The bullet passes through the block and as a result the block begins to move with a speed of 1.5m/sec in the original direction of the bullet. Find the speed of the bullet after it has passed through the block.

Velocity, conservation of momentum, force, force of gravity

1. A ball is thrown in the air with enough force so that it goes straight up for several seconds. a. What is the velocity of the ball 1 sec before it's highest point? b. What is the change in velocity during this 1 sec interval? c. What is the velocity 1 sec after it reaches it's highest point? d. what is the change in veloc
