A 6.0 kg block is pushed 8.0 m up a rough 37 degree inclined plane by a horizontal force of 75N. If the initial speed of the block is 2.2m/s up the plane and a constant kinetic friction force of 25N opposes the motion, calculate the initial kinetic energy of the block, the work done by the 75N force, the work done by the friction force, the work done by gravity, the work done by the normal force, and the final kinetic energy of the block.

Radiation of a certain wavelength causes electrons with a maximum kineticenergy of 0.62 eV to be ejected from a metal whose work function is 2.65 eV. What will be the maximum kineticenergy (in eV) with which this same radiation ejects electrons from another metal whose work function is 2.01 eV? Units are in eV.

When an average force F is exerted over a certain distance on a shopping cart of mass m, its kineticenergy
increases by 12 mv2.
(a) Use the work-energy theorem to show that the distance over which the force acts is mv2/2F.
Am I on the right track? UGH so very frustrated!
Kineticenergy = 1/2 mass x speed2
KE = 1/

On a frozen pond, a 10.6 kg sled is given a kick that imparts to it an initial speed of V(0) = 1.73 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the sled and the ice is mu(k) = 0.102. Use the work-kineticenergy theorem to find the distance the sled moves before coming to rest.

A child playing marbles shoots a marble directly at another marble at rest. The first marble stops, and the second marble continues in a straight line with the same speed that the first marble had initially. What is the ratio of the masses of the two marbles? I need to see each step and formula to solve this question.

Question: A 16-kg sled is being pulled along the horizontal snow-covered ground by a force of 24 N. Starting from rest, the sled attains a speed of 2.0 m/s in 8.0 m. Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the runners of the sled and the snow.

In the high jump, the kineticenergy of an athlete is transformed into gravitational potential energy without the aid of a pole. With what minimum speed must the athlete leave the ground in order to lift his center of mass 2.00 m and cross the bar with a speed of 0.670 m/s?
