An airplane at a height of 2000 meters is flying horizontally, directly toward an observer on the ground, with a speed of 300 meters per second. How fast is the angle of elevation of the plane changing when this angle is 45 degrees?
Pushing on the pump of a soap dispenser compresses a small spring. When the spring is compressed 0.55 cm, its potential energy is 0.0035 J. What is the force constant of the spring? What compression is required for the spring potential energy to equal 0.0094 ?
You raise a bucket of water from the bottom of a deep well. If your power output is 128 W, and the mass of the bucket and the water in it is 6.00 kg, with what speed can you raise the bucket? Ignore the weight of the rope.
Never mind, i figured it out.
A new record for running the stairs of the Empire State Building was set on February 3, 2003. The 86 flights, with a total of 1576 steps, was run in 9 minutes and 33 seconds. If the height gain of each step was 0.20 m, and the mass of the runner was 68 kg, what was his average...
A 1.1 kg block is held against a spring of force constant 2.0×10^4 N/m, compressing it a distance of 0.20 m. How fast is the block moving after it is released and the spring pushes it away? v=____m/s
never mind, i figured out how to do this problem 1. K = 11J 2. v = 9.1m/s 3. W = 14J the wording was just alittle bit confusing
At t= 1.0s, a 0.61 kg object is falling with a speed of 6.0 m/s. At t= 2.0s, it has a kinetic energy of 25 J. 1. What is the kinetic energy of the object at t= 1.0s? 2. What is the speed of the object at t= 2.0s? 3. How much work was done on the object between t= 1.0s and t= 2...
A small plane tows a glider at constant speed and altitude. If the plane does 2.00X10^5 J of work to tow the glider 165 m and the tension in the tow rope is 2660 N, what is the angle between the tow rope and the horizontal?
A 55-kg packing crate is pulled with constant speed across a rough floor with a rope that is at an angle of 44.7 degrees above the horizontal. If the tension in the rope is 155 N, how much work is done on the crate to move it 9.0 m? *looking for W=__J
