Physics
A 3 m long lever is used to lift a mass of 500 kg. If a force of 200 N is to be used to life the mass, then how far from the mass should the fulcrum be placed? Assume the mass and the force act at the ends of the lever.

A hot-air balloon is rising upward with a constant speed of 2.22 m/s. When the balloon is 7.74 m above the ground, the balloonist accidentally drops a compass over the side of the balloon. How much time elapses before the compass hits the ground?

physics
A police car is traveling at a velocity of 15.0 m/s due north, when a car zooms by at a constant velocity of 45.0 m/s due north. After a reaction time 0.700 s the policeman begins to pursue the speeder with an acceleration of 3.00 m/s^2. Including the reaction time, how long ...
