Physics
At a playground, a 18.7 kg child plays on a slide that drops through a height of 2.07 m. The child starts at rest at the top of the slide. On the way down, the slide does a nonconservative work of -318 J on the child. What is the child's speed at the bottom of the slide? I...

Thank you, I understand that now.

1) my teacher is really bad. 2) Is delta potential energy = mgvf - mgvi

Catching a wave, a 65 kg surfer starts with a speed of 1.3 m/s, drops through a height of 2.10 m, and ends with a speed of 8.2 m/s. How much nonconservative work was done on the surfer? I have genuinely no idea how to solve this problem.

That's why I was getting it wrong. I kept using delta x which was one in both cases. Have I mentioned you are a lifeseaver.

The work required to stretch a certain spring from an elongation of 4.11 cm to an elongation of 5.11 cm is 32.0 J. (a) Is the work required to increase the elongation of the spring from 5.11 cm to 6.11 cm greater than, less than, or equal to 32.0 J? (b) Verify your answer to p...
