17. explain how the sport of pole vaulting dramatically changed when flexible fiberglass poles replaced still wodden poles?

-the fiberglass poles had more momentum and PE than still wooden poles?

20. does the international space station have gravitational pe? ke? explain?

-It has gravitation pe, but I am stuck as to why?

25. what does the work theorem say about the speed of a satillite in circular orbit? (this one I don't understand)

30.a moving hammer hits a nail and drives it into a wall. if the hammer hits the nail with twice the speed, how much deeper will the nail be driven? if it hits with three times the speed?

-would it be three times the speed

- physics problems -

no, yes but why, no , no

fiberglass poles can store energy (from horizontal velocity) and transfer it upward.

Gravational PE occurs when two bodies are separated, right?

The satellite in orbit uses no energy.

work = velocity^2

force*distance=velocity^2

distance is proportional to velocity^2

so what is twice square?
