I tried this problem and got approximately 35.8 mph and 12.9 degrees south of west. I hope this is right.
A light ray traveling through air strikes a smooth, flat slab of crown glass at an angle of 30 degrees to normal. Index of refraction for crown glass is 1.66. What is the angle of refraction?
An animal population is increasing at a rate of 150+20t animals per year. By how much does the animal population increase between year 5 and year 8?
The answer is 20 because one equals 10 and since there are two multiply 10*2 which will equal 20 or just add 10+10 which equals 20.
A mass m1 = 4.9 kg rests on a frictionless table and connected by a massless string over a massless pulley to another mass m2 = 4.7 kg which hangs freely from the string. When released, the hanging mass falls a distance d = 0.8 m.
if aluminum has the density of 2.7g what would the mass be?
At the train station, you notice a large horizontal spring at the end of the track where the train comes in. This is a safety device to stop the train so that it will not plow through the station if the engineer misjudges the stopping distance. While waiting, you wonder what w...
At the State Fair you see people trying to win a prize at a game booth. They are sliding a metal disk shaped like a puck up a wooden ramp so that it stops in a marked zone near the top of the ramp before sliding back down. You estimate that you can slide the 'puck' at ...
The Navy wants a new airplane launcher for their aircraft carriers that is basically a large spring and your job is to determine the necessary spring constant. The launcher pushes the plane for a short distance along a much longer runway. During that same time, the plane's...
Your artist friend's new work is a simple, high-impact kinetic sculpture called 'Destruction.' A 200-kg steel block is hung from the ceiling by an 8-foot-long rope. A second rope is attached to the side of the block. The other end of this second rope is attached to...
