Homework Help: Ap Physics

Posted by Tiffany on Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 2:05am.

Paleontologists estimate that if a Tyrannosaurus rex were to trip and fall, it would have experienced a force of approximately 260,000N acting on its torso when it hit the ground.

Assuming the torso has a mass of 3800kg , find the magnitude of the torso's upward acceleration as it comes to rest. (For comparison, humans lose consciousness with an acceleration of about 7g .)


Assuming the torso is in free fall for a distance of 1.21m as it falls to the ground, how much time is required for the torso to come to rest once it contacts the ground?

delta t (change in t)=?
