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 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?

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

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
