A stone of mass 0.62kg is fired upwards at an angle to the ground and with a speed of 5.5 m s-1, as shown in the figure in the attachment. The figure shows the path of the stone until it strikes the ground at point C.

Disregard air resistance. Take the acceleration, g, due to gravity to have a value of 9.8 m s-2.

Calculate:
1. the kinetic energy of the stone as it leaves the ground at point A.
According to the definition, the kinetic energy is

So the kinetic energy of the stone as it leaves the ground at pint A is 9.3775 J.

2. ...

Solution Summary

The potential energy and kinetic energy of the stone are investigated. The solution is detailed and has a '5/5' rating.

In the high jump, thekineticenergy of an athlete is transformed into gravitational potentialenergy without the aid of a pole. With what minimum speed must the athlete leave the ground in order to lift his center of mass 2.00 m and cross the bar with a speed of 0.670 m/s?

A block of mass m = 0.65 kg is fastened to a spring with k = 65 N/m. The block is pulled a distance x = 11 cm from its equilibrium position at x = 0 on a frictionless surface and released from rest at t = 0. v= 1.1 m/s^2

In this simulation, an object traverses the "hills and valleys" of a frictionless roller coaster in the realm of zero air resistance. You will be asked to find measurements and make calculations concerning total mechanical energyand whether it is conserved. Then you will then make some changes to the global air resistance for

An object whose mass is 1 lb has a velocity of 100 ft/s. How would I determine the final velocity, in ft/s, if thekineticenergy of the object decreases by 100 ft*lbf? What would be the change in elevation, in ft. associated with the 100 ft*lbf change in potentialenergy if g=32.0 ft/s^2?
