A 1.0x10^-3 kg spider is hanging vertically by a thread that has a Young's modulus of 4.5x10^9 N/m^2 and a radius of 13x 10^-6. Suppose that a 95 kg person is hanging vertically on an aluminum wire. What is the radius of the wire that would exhibit the same strain as the spider's thread, when the thread is stressed by the full
An archer pulls the bowstring back for a distance of 0.470 m before releasing the arrow. The bow and string act like a spring whose spring constant is 425 N/m. (a) What is the elastic potential energy of the drawn bow? (b) The arrow has a mass of 0.0300 kg. How fast is it traveling when it leaves the bow?

A block attached to a spring is acted on by a spring with spring constant k and a weak frictional force of constant magnitude f. The block is pulled a distance Xo from the equilibrium and released. It oscillates many times and eventually comes to rest. a) Show that the decrease of amplitude is the same for each cycle of osci
A +30e-6 charge is placed 32 cm form an idnetical +30e-6 charge. How much work would be required to move a +50e-6 test charge from a point midway between them to a point closer to either of the charges?
The asking problem: For the semiannular area, determine the ratio of r1 to r2 for which the centroid of the area is located at x=-1/2*r2 and y=0. Note: This problem is a 2D problem and not a 3D. It was taken from the «Distributed forces: Centroids and Centers of Gravity» section of my static course. The files is in word97
A very large pipe is set up in a science museum. It is open at both ends, and it is large enough to walk inside it. A large loud speaker is set up at one end of the pipe. A student walks along the pipe and makes the following observations. While walking through the entire length of the pipe the student encountered 3 soft zones
Find the work done in bringing three particles each having a mass of 100g from large distances to the vertices of an equilateral triangle of side 20cm.
A copper piece of mass 10g is suspended by a vertical spring. The spring elongates 1cm over its natural length to keep the piece in equilibrium. A beaker containing water is now placed below the piece so as to immerse it completely in water. Find the elongation of the string. Density of copper is 9000 kg/m^3 g = 10 m/s^2
A simple pendulum having a bob of mass m undergoes small oscillations. If theta is the small angle that makes with the vertical at the extreme positions, find the tension in the string as a function of the angle made by the string with the vertical. When is the tension maximum and when it is a minimum?
1. Imagine a superconductor in its normal state in the shape of a ring immersed in a magnetic field parallel to the central axis (that is, perpendicular to the plane of the ring.) Suppose the ring is cooled and becomes superconducting. (a) Describe what happens to the field (b) If the ring is pulled parpendicularly out of the
Spacecraft A and spacecraft B are traveling on paths parallel to an x axis. Initially, at t=0, A is located at XoA= -30 m, moving at VoA=+25 m/sec, and having constant acceleration aA = -4.5 meters per second squared. Also at t=0, spacecraft B is located at XoB= +60 m, moving with initial velocity VoB= -9.5 m/sec and accelerati
1. Imagine two symmetrical pulses that are identical in every way, except tht one is inverted. These pulses are moving toward each other on a rope in opposite directions. What happens to the energy of the rope at the instant of complete cancellation? 2. In the real world, a pulse sent down a very long, taut rope diminishes in
I have a huge physics exam coming up and I'm not prepared. What are some quick study guides? We're allowed to bring in cheat sheets but how I make them useful?
