    Linear Momentum and a Toyota and Cadillac Collision

    A 0.90X10^3 kg Toyota collides into the rear end of a 2.2X10^3 kg Cadillac stopped at a red light. The bumpers lock, the brakes are locked, and the two cars skid forward 4.0 m before stopping. The police officer, knowing that the coefficient of kinetic friction between tires and road is 0.40, calculates the speed of the Toyota a

    Speed and Mass Ratios

    Calculate the ratio of v/c and m/m_o for a) 100 keV electron b) 1 MeV electron c) 1 MeV proton d) 100 MeV proton Note: m_o is rest mass

    Speed and Velocity Solved

    1) Two trains, one traveling at 68km/h and the other at 136km/h. They are headed toward one another along a straight level track. When they are 867m apart each engineer sees the other's train and applies brakes. The brakes decelerates each train at the rate of 1.0m/s^2. Is there a collision? a) Yes b) No b) What distanc

    Derivatives (Distance, Speed)

    A lighthouse is located on a small island 3 km away from the nearest point P on a straight shoreline and its light makes four revolutions per minute. How fast is the beam of light moving along the shoreline when it is 1 km from P?

    Calculating Frequency and Energy

    Violet light has a wavelength of about 410 nm. What is its frequency? Calculate the energy of one photon of violet light. What is the energy of 1.0 mol of violet light photons? Compare the energy of photons of violet light with those of red light. Which is more energetic and by what factor? Frequency of violet light:____

    Gas cylinder: Ventilation, pressure, quantity, flow

    See attached file for proper format of symbols. 6. There is a gas cylinder filled with oxygen in front of you. It is 1.5 meters tall, and 30 centimeters in diameter. The oxygen within the cylinder has dropped to a gauge pressure of 2.52 x 106Pa at a temperature of 20°C. This pressure is insufficient to ventilate a patient in

    Speed of sound and Light - calculating time and distance

    During a thunderstorm, we first see the lightning and then hear the thunder. Assume that clouds and storm occur in the lower reaches of the earth's atmosphere, which is approximately 5km above the earth's surface. How long after you see the lightning do you hear the thunder?

    Time dilation test

    Two observers agree to test time diliation. They use identical clocks, and one observer in frame s' moves with speed v=0.6c relative to the other observer in s. When their origins coincide, they start thier clocks. They agree to send a signal when their clocks read 60 minutes and to send a confirmation signal when each receiv
