Physics: 8 word problems about velocity, distance, rotation, volume, time, speed

Until 1883, every city and town in the US kept its own local time. Today, travelers reset their watches only when the time change equals 1.0h. How far, on the average must you travel in degrees of longitude until your watch must be reset by 1.0h? (hint: Earth rotates 360 degrees in about 24 hours ) Gold, which has a mass of

Whirling stone: Maximum velocity

A man whirls a stone round his head on the end of a string 2 m long. Can the string be in a horizontal plane ? If the stone has a mass of 200g and the string will break if the tension exceeds 4 Newton, what is the smallest angle the string can make with the horizontal ? What is then the speed of the stone ? Take g = 10m/s^2

Momentum and magnitude of mass; impulse; force

A constant force acts on a 2kg mass for 3sec while the velocity changes from 4m/sec to 10m/sec. a. Find the initial and final momentum of the mass. b. Find the change in momentum and the impulse given to the mass. c. Find the magnitude of the force.

Submarine A detects sound from sub B. Find the velocity of sub B.

Submarine A detects sound from sub B. Given the frequency received and knowing that emitted, find the velocity of sub B. Submarine A, with velocity 21 m/sec, receives from directly behind it, the sound with frequency 266 cy/sec, from submarine B which is known to emit sound at 265 cy/sec. The two submarines are 1800 meters

Object of mass 2M moving with SHM: Find period, velocity, amplitude

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for diagram showing parameters, and general equations of SHM. Driven by a spring with force constant k, on a horizontal frictionless table, two joined masses, each mass M, is executing SHM between xm and -xm. Known parameter values are: M= 2 kg, k= 64 nt/m, xm= .25 m, PART a. Find the period, and max

Velocity of a falling object is measured.

A construction worker on a new high-rise building drops a wrench and it falls 78.4 m to the ground. How fast is it moving when it hits, assuming no air resistance? Use g = 9.8 m/s2.

Apply conservation of angular momentum to find the final angular velocity.

SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for diagram of before and after rearrangement. A framework consists of two thin, uniform bars of mass M= 12 kg, length L= 3 m, and two thin, uniform bars of mass m= 6 kg, length D= 3 m, forming a rectangle of length L width D. It is rotating in space with initial angular velocity Wo= 18 rad/sec. At some ins

Bernoulli's equation determines ejection velocity of liquid from a tank.

Bernoulli's equation determines ejection velocity of liquid from a tank. Motion equations find x,y coordinates of impact of the liquid. A large tank contains non-viscous liquid whose depth is H. A bullet punches a small hole of radius r in the vertical side of the tank at a point which is distance h below the liquid surface.

Bernoulli's equation of continuity in liquid flow from large to smaller pipe

See attachment #1 for diagram. Bernoulli's equation and equation of continuity in liquid flow from large to smaller pipe A sprinkler supply pipe pumps water upward from a larger pipe, diameter d2=.28 m, to a smaller pipe, diameter d1= .12 m. The velocity of the water through the smaller pipe is v1= 6 m/sec. a. find the

Physics: Speakers A & B are vibrating in phase; what is the distance?

Speakers A and B are vibrating in phase. They are directly facing each other, are 7.80 m apart, and are eack playing a 73.0-Hz tone. The speed of sound is 343 m/s. On the line between the speakers there are three points where constructive interference occurs. What are the distance of these three points from speaker A?

Finding the ratio between two velocities down a ramp.

A marble and a cube are placed at the top of a ramp. Starting from rest at the same height, the marble rolls and the cube slides (no kinetic friction) down the ramp. Find the ratio of the center-of-mass speed of the cube to the center-of-mass speed of the marble at the bottom of the ramp.

Speed of a bullet measured using ballistic pendulum !

A simple way to measure the speed of a bullet is with a ballistic pendulum. This consists of a wooden block mass, M, into which the bullet mass, m, is shot. The block is suspended from cables of length, l, and the impact of the bullet causes it to swing through a maximum angle, A. The initial speed of the bullet is v. a) How
