What you do with ln(xy) is just separate it into 2 pieces: ln(x) + ln(y) ln(x) + ln(y) = 1 + y' 1/x + y'/y = 1 + y' 1/x - 1 = y' (1 - y)

you have: m1 = 60 kg v1 = 5 m/s m2 = 40 kg v2 = 0 m/s (I presume she's not moving because there's no mention of her velocity) so m1v1 = (m1 + m2)V V = m1v1 / (m1 + m2) solve for v once you find v, you plug it into your kinetic energy formula: K = 1/2mv^2 where you'...

Rise is the change in the y coordinate, if you think of the graph, you are going up or down. Run is the change in the x coordinate, left to right. To find the change, we take the second coordinate, and subtract the first coordinate. So, what does that give us? y2 - (y1) = y ...

Kinetic energy is defined with K = 1/2*m*v^2 so you have Kf - Ki [1/2(m)(vf)^2] - [1/2(m)(vi)^2] = m = mass v = velocity; f for final, i for initial your answer will be in kg * m/s^2 which is the developed way of writing Newtons because 1 kg * m/s^2 = 1 N

same thing with kinetic friction. I have a question where they ask me to find the work done by friction between the skis and the snow. my answer is: Wf = -Fc * d, but I have a feeling that I need to add the angle to it, or is that only with gravity?
February 6, 2012

physics
This is a theory question. Let's say I go down a slope on my skis. When I want to calculate the Work done by air resistance, do I take the angle of the slope in consideration? For example, will it be: Wr = -Fr * d * sinTHETA or will it only be Wr = -Fr * d Thank you
