Kinematics Problems

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Here, we provide a brief summary of some common kinematics, and solve three common kinematics problems, specifically from College Physics, by J. Serway, et al. We specifically find:

For a car traveling east at a given velocity, the final velocity for a constant acceleration in two different directions.

For an arrow shot straight up in the air, the maximum height of the arrow and the time the arrow is in the air.

For a mailbag released from a descending helicopter, the speed of the mailbag and its distance below the helicopter.

We focus on the strategy for solving kinematic equations efficiently. The full solution/explanation is included in both PDF and PS format.

Here, we follow a summarized introduction to kinematics along the lines of College Physics, written by Serway
et al., and solve a few common kinematic problems from the second chapter of that text.

Displacement in the x direction is given by:
∆x ≡ x_f − x_i, (1)

where x_f is the ...
