2. A train starts from rest and accelerates uniformly at 0.096 m/s^2, until it has traveled 3.0 km. The train then moves at a constant speed for 8.0 minutes. The distance traveled by the train in the entire trip is:
a. 7.6 km
b. 8.5 km
c. 9.1 km
d. 11.5 km
e. 14.5 km

3. A prejectile is fired from ground level on level terrain. The initial velocity components are vox= 100 m/s and v0y = 49 m/s. How far from the initial position, in the horizontal direction, does the projectile reach its maximum height?
a. 120 m
b. 500 m
c. 380 m
d. 620 m
e. not enough information given to determine this

Please see the attached file for detailed solutions.

1. The object is always subject to the gravitational acceleration g = 9.8 m/s2, whose direction is downward.
So the acceleration is nonzero and directed downward.
When the object reaches the highest point, the velocity is 0.
Answer: e

2. With initial velocity v0 = 0 and ...

Solution Summary

The solution analyzes the motion of projectile in detail. The velocity and acceleration is determined.

An object executing simple harmonic motion has a maximum speed of 4.3 m/s and a maximum acceleration of 0.65 m/s^2.
Find (a) the amplitude and (b) the period of this motion.

In uniform circular motion, the acceleration is perpendicular to the velocity at every instant. Is this true when the motion is not uniform, that is, when the speed is not constant?

A person bounces up and down on a trampoline, while always staying in contact with it. The motion is simple harmonic motion, and it takes 1.98 s to complete one cycle. The height of each bounce above the equilibrium position is 54.0 cm.
(a) Determine the amplitude of the motion.
(b) Determine the angular frequency of the

An 0.50 kg object is attached to one end of a spring, and the system is set into simple harmonic motion. The displacement x of the object as a function of time is shown in the drawing below. With the aid of this data, determine the following values.
(a) amplitude A of the motion
(b) angular frequency
(c) spring c

A picture of the system has been attached. There is no friction between m and m1. How would you determine the coordinates to describe the system and the equations of motion?

The Moon revolves arond the earth in 27.3 days in a nearly circular orbit with a radius of 3.8 x 10^5 km. Assuming that the Moon's orbital motion is a uniform circular motion, what is the Moon acceleration as it "falls" toward the earth?
