Micro-F Capacitor Voltages

Hi. Can someone please check these two answers? (a) seems very low and (b) seems very high to me. A 0.22 micro-F capacitor is charged by a 1.5-V battery. After being charged, the capacitor is connected to a small electric motor. Assuming 100% efficiency, (a) to what height can the motor lift a 5.0-g mass? (b) What initial vol

Fluids, Pressure and Depth

A patient is to receive an intravenous injection of medication. In order to work properly, the pressure of fluid containing the medication must be 109 kPa at the injection point. (a) If the fluid has a density of 1020 kg/m^3, find the height at which the bag of fluid must be suspended above the patient. Assume that the pressure

Laws of Motion/Free Fall

Question: When baseball players throw the ball in from the outfield, they usually allow it to take one bounce before it reaches the infield, on the theory that the ball arrives sooner that way. Suppose that the angle at which a bounced ball leaves the ground is the same as the angle at which the outfielder threw it, but that the

Classical Physics Problems

1. During a rockslide, a 520 kg rock slides from rest down a hillside that is 500m long and 300m high. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the rock and the hill surface is 0.25 (a) If the gravitational potential energy U of the rock-Earth system is zero at the bottom of the hill, what is the value of U just before the

The Conservation of Energy

A skier coasts down a very smooth, 10-m-high slope (v =20 m/s), what is his speed at the bottom of the slope. If the skier has a mass of 60kg and the force of friction retards his motion by doing 2500 j of work, what is his speed at the bottom of the slope?

Spring constant problem: Work done, speed of block, maximum compression

A 230 g block is dropped onto a relaxed vertical spring that has a spring constant of k = 2.5 N/cm (Fig. 7-30). The block becomes attached to the spring and compresses the spring 14 cm before momentarily stopping. What work is done on the block by the spring force while the spring is being compressed? (in J) What is the s

Strength of a fishing line

1. The tension at which a fishing line snaps is commonly called the line's "strength." What minimum strength is needed for a line that is to stop a salmon of weight 85 N in 8.0 cm if the fish is initially drifting at 2.5 m/s? Assume a constant deceleration.

Two conducting wires each of length L are...

Two conducting wires each of length L are connected to a knob, whereby a total electric charge Q is deposited onto two small spherical metallic spheres, each of mass m and diameter d, at the end of the wires. We observe each wire of this electroscope to lie at an angle q from the vertical. Find an expression for the charge Q

Kinetic frictional force for a skier: Work done, magnitude of force

A 63 kg skier coasts up a snow-covered hill that makes an angle of 25 degrees with the horizontal. The initial speed of the skier is 6.6 m/s. After coasting a distance of 1.9 m up the slope, the speed of the skier is 4.4 m/s. (a) Find the work done by the kinetic frictional force that acts on the skis. (b) What is the magni

Power, work

A car can accelerate from rest to 25 m/sec in 12 seconds on a level road. The weight of the car is 10,000 newtons. Determine (a) power used in the acceleration in Kw. (b) Maximum speeed it will be able to maintain on an uphill road of angle 30 degrees. (c) Work done by the force during the first 5 seconds from start. (d) avera

Simple Harmonic Motion: Write a program to integrate an equation

See the attached file for the formulas. Determine an appropriate step size h by assuming that an h that works as expected for simple harmonic motion is good enough for the given initial angle. In particular, if the position at the end of one period is within 0.1% of the original point, we'll be satisfied.

Gravitational force

Mars has a mass of about 6.4 x 10^23 kg, and its moon Phobos has a mass of about 9.6 x 10^15 kg. If the magnitude of the gravitational force between the two bodies is 4.6 x 10^15 N, how far apart are Mars and Phobos? Please show the work, answer and the formulas you used. Thanks!

Work/kinetic friction on a system moving at constant speed.

"A 276 kg piano slides 4.02 m down a 30.2° incline and is kept from accelerating by a man who is pushing back on it parallel to the incline, as seen in the figure (attached in a Word file). The effective coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.400. Calculate the work done by the man on the piano." See attached file for full pro

Work and Energy: Speed of block, maximum compression of spring, block rebounds

On an incline a 2.00 kg block is released 4.00m from a long spring with a force constant k= 60.0 N/m that is attached at the bottom of the incline. The incline makes the angle of 53 degrees with the horizontal, and the coefficients of friction between the block and the incline are u static = .40 and uk= .20. a) what is the s

Work done by a constant force: Lifting and carrying a pumpkin from a field

I think I have both answers, but I really need (b) explained. You go to a pumpkin patch to select your Halloween pumpkin. You lift the 3.2kg pumpkin to a height of 1.2 m, then carry it 50.0 m on level ground to the checkout stand.

Pulley problem

A thick rope with a length of 5m is draped over a pulley, such that the right side y=3m is dangling free and on the left side L-y=2m is dangling free. The rope has a mass of 10kg. Since the longer side is more massive than the shorter side, the rope begins falling downward, with the shorter end going up towards the pulley. As
