In 1992, Akira Matsushima, from Japan, rode a unicycle across the United States, covering about 4800 km in six weeks. Suppose that, during that trip, he had to find his way through a city with plenty of one way streets. In the city center, Matsushima had to travel in sequence 280 m north, 220 m east, 360 m north, 300 m west, 1

Electric force on an electron

What is the electric force (with direction) on an electron in a uniform electric field of strength 2780 N/C that points due east? Take the positive direction to be east.

Mass and cord tension of mass on a frictionless plane

A block with unknown mass M is held stationary on a frictionless plane inclined at angle b= 30 degrees, by a cord attached to the ceiling. The angle between cord and ceiling is angle a=50 degrees. The normal force exerted on the block by the plane is N= 74 nt. SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for arrangement. Part a. On the diaqram shown as
