Physics
A 325-kg boat is sailing 15.0° north of east at a speed of 2.00 m/s. Thirty seconds later, it is sailing 35.0° north of east at a speed of 4.00 m/s. During this time, three forces act on the boat: a 31.0-N force directed 15.0° north of east (due to an auxiliary ...

Physics
drawing shows a 25.0-kg crate that is initially at rest. Note that the view is one looking down on the top of the crate. Two forces, and , are applied to the crate, and it begins to move. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the crate and the floor is mk = 0.350. ...

An ice skater is gliding horizontally across the ice with an initial velocity of +6.3 m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the ice and the skate blades is 0.081, and air resistance is negligible. How much time elapses before her velocity is reduced to +2.8 m/s ?

The drawing shows a large cube (mass = 25 kg) being accelerated across a horizontal frictionless surface by a horizontal force . A small cube (mass = 4.0 kg) is in contact with the front surface of the large cube and will slide downward unless is sufficiently large. The ...
