Velocity

Momentum

A 160 kg hockey puck is moving on a icy, frictionless, horizontal surface. at t=0 the puck is moving to the right at 3m/s 1) Calculate the velocity of the puck(magnitude and direction) after a force of 25N directed to the right has been applied for 0.050s 2)If instead, a force of 12N directed to the left is applied from t=0 t

Momentum, Velocity and Force

A baseball has mass 0.145.kg 1) if the velocity of a pitched ball has magnitude 45m/s and the batted ball's velocity is 55m/s in the opposite direction, find the magnitude of the change in momentum of the ball and the impulse applied to it by the bat. b) If the ball remains in contact with the bat for 2.00ms, find the magnitu

Three-Block Inelastic Collision

A block of mass m1 moving with speed v1 undergoes a completely inelastic collision with a stationary block of mass m2. The blocks then move, stuck together, at speed v2. After a short time, the two-block system collides inelastically with a third block, of mass m3, which is initially stationary. The three blocks then move, stu

Ballistic Pendulum measures projectile speeds

A ballistic pendulum is a great device for measuring projectile speeds that are relatively large. You launch a small mass m into a large mass M, and it swings up a height h where the two masses stick together. Show that the velocity of the projectile (mass m) is given by v= (m+M)/m) times the square root of 2gh

A block of mass m slides on a frictionless table. It is constrained to move inside a ring of radius l which is fixed to the table. at t=0, the block is moving along the inside of the table (i.e., in the tangential direction) with velocity (v)O (v initial) , the coefficient of friction between the block and the ring is "u" 1) find the velocity of the block at later times 2)find the position of the block at later times

Physics Problems (Displacement Vectors; Velocities etc.)

I would like you to show me all of your work/calculations and the correct answer to each problem. 13. A ball rolls at a constant velocity of 1.50 m / s at an angle of 45 degrees below the + x-axis in the fourth quadrant. If we take the ball to be at the origin at t = 0, what are its coordinates (x, y) 1.65 s later? Answers

Vectors - Force & Velocity
