A 0.31-kg stone is held 1.2 m above the top edge of a water well and then dropped into it. The well has a depth of 5.6 m. (a) Taking y = 0 at the top edge of the well, what is the gravitational potential energy of the stoneEarth system before the stone is released? (b) ...
Two blocks are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley as in the figure below. The system is released from rest while m2 is on the floor and m1 is a distance h above the floor. (a) Assuming m1 > m2, find an expression for the speed of m1 just as i...
Im still confused. Ive tried solving for k a couple of different ways and the website tells me that I am wrong. My answers have ranged from .0286 to 791.1 N/m. Ive tried converting 1.55 cm to m, and it still says that I am wrong.
Two blocks, each with a mass = 0.168 kg, can slide without friction on a horizontal surface. Initially, block 1 is in motion with a speed = 1.28 m/s; block 2 is at rest. When block 1 collides with block 2, a spring bumper on block 1 is compressed. Maximum compression of the sp...
Consider the markets for pizza and fried chicken. Show graphically and explain the impact you would expect if technological change leads to the development of a pizza oven that is both much cheaper and uses less energy than current ovens.
The 78.0 kg climber is supported in the "chimney" by the friction forces exerted on his shoes and back. The static coefficients of friction between his shoes and the wall, and between his back and the wall, are 0.840 and 0.630, respectively. What is the minimum norma...
At the bow of a ship on a stormy sea, a crewman conducts an experiment by standing on a bathroom scale. In calm waters, the scale reads 172 lb. During the storm, the crewman finds a maximum reading of 215 lb and a minimum reading of 131 lb. Calculate the maximum upward and dow...
The point L(a,b)in quadrant 1, is rotated 90 degrees about the origin and then reflected across the y-axis. What are the coordinates of the image of L?
I need help with the riddle in pizzaz, "what should you say when you meet an angel?" Anyone know?
