A 50.0 kg parachutist jumps out of an airplane at a height of 1.00 km. The parachute opens, and the jumper lands on the ground with a speed of 5.00 m/s. By what amount was the jumper's mechanical energy reduced due to air resistance during this jump? so, you have to take ...

[(z^n)^3] / [z^n*z^3] How can I set this up? I'm pretty sure you have to simplify so that it's z^3n / z^n+3 but where can I do from there? or am I messing up a step somewhere? (z^n)^3= z^3n and z^n * Z^3= Z^(n+3) so z^3n / Z^(n+3) = z^(3n-n+3)

If a young girl is in a truck that is rolling down a hill with a force of 8765 N, what force must the brakes apply on the truck to have the truck roll at a constant speed? Would she have to apply more than 8765 N or less than 8765 N to get the truck to stop? My thoughts are, ...

A shopper in a supermarket pushes a loaded 32 kg cart with a horizontal force of 12 N. How far will the cart move in 3.5 s if the shopper places an 85 N child in the cart before pushing? I don't know how I can add the 85 N to the 32 kg or if I can or how that works in an ...

A 75 kg person escapes from a burning building by jumping from a window 25 m above a catching net. Assuming that air resistance exerts a 95 N force on the person during the fall, determine the person's velocity just before hitting the net. My main problem is finding the ...

A block with a mass of 5.0 kg is held in equilibrium on an incline of an angle with a measure of 30.0 degrees by the horizontal force F. Find the magnitude of F. Find the normal force exerted by the inbline on the block. (disregard friction) Well, I don't even know how to ...

Find all zeros of f f(t)=(t-2)^3-(t-2) ok... now do I have to factor out (t-2)^3 to [t^3-6(t^2)-12t-8] and then minus (t-2) resulting in [t^3-6(t^2)+13t-6]? if so, where can I go from there?? sorry... the second answer would be [t^3-6(t^2)+11t-6]

what do you use sulfur for or what is it made by. Sulfur is a basic chemical, used in production of rubber, plastics, acids, and medicines. I sometimes use sulfur (burning) to fumigate my wine casts.

A ball is thrown upward from the ground with an initial speed of 25 m/s; at the same instant, a ball dropped from rest from a building 15 m high. After how long will the balls be at the same height? The equations I have is final velocity squared = initial velocity squared plus...
