Newton's Second Law

Determining Speed After Movement

See the attached file. A 5.06 kg block located on a horizontal floor is pulled by a cord that exerts a force F = 13.9 N at an angle theta = 18.0° above the horizontal, as shown in the figure. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the floor is 0.06. What is the speed of the block 3.5 s after it starts mov

A block on a plane slides down at constant speed. Find distance and speed.

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters. A block slides down a plane at angle b= 25 degrees with constant speed. If given initial speed Vo= 5.4 m/sec up the plane, it slides up distance x to a stop. The coefficient of friction between block and plane is f, not zero. PART a. If given Vo up this plane, use Newton'

Buoyant force: Stone dropped into sea water

A stone of density 5g/cm^3 completely immersed in sea water is allowed to sink from rest. Calculate the depth to which the stone would sink in two seconds. Neglect effect of friction. Relative density of sea water = 1.025 and g = 980cm/s^2

Centripetal Force

A "swing" ride at a carnival consists of chairs that are swung in a circle by 12.0 m cables attached to a vertical rotating pole. Suppose the total mass of a chair and its occupant is 220 kg. (a) Determine the tension in the cable attached to the chair. (b) Find the speed of the chair.
