Work at Lifting and Lowering Phase

A weight lifter is bench-pressing a barbell whose mass is 85 kg. He raises the barbell a distance of 0.65m above his chest and then lowers the barbell the same distance. The weight is raised and lowered at a constant velocity. Determine the work done by the weight lifter during (a) the lifting phase and (b) the lowering phase.

Power Output of a Motor

The crate has a mass of 150 kg and rests on a surface for which the coefficients of static and kinetic friction are us= 0.3 and uk = 0.2 respectively. If the motor supplies a cable force of F = (8t^2 + 20) N, where t is in seconds, determine the power output developed by the motor when t= 5s.

Kinetic Energy and Work

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 frictio

What is the total work done by the two tugboats on the supertanker?

Two tugboats pull a disabled supertanker. Each tug exerts a constant force of 1.9e10^6 N, one at an angle 12.0 degrees west of north, and the other at an angle 12.0 degrees east of north, as they pull the tanker a distance 0.700 km toward the north. What is the total work done by the two tugboats on the supertanker? Express your

Physics Calculations: Finding the Length of a Ramp

Question: Truck brakes can fail if they get too hot. In some mountainous areas, ramps of loose gravel are constructed to stop runaway trucks that have lost their brakes. The combination of a slight upward slope and a large coefficient of friction in the gravel brings the truck safely to a halt. Suppose a gravel ramp slopes upwar

Roller Coaster Physics

ROLLER COASTER DESIGN Designing a roler coaster is very tricky. Patrons of theme and amusement parks want to be thrilled , but generally do not want to be injured. Downard accelerations of greater than 10 g cause bodily harm. Negative (i.e upward) accelerations of greater than about 5 g also cause damage ( "red out") The
