Physics
The track near the top of your favorite roller coaster has a circular shape with a diameter of 36 m. When you are at the top, you feel as if you weigh only one-fifth of your weight on the ground. What is the speed of the roller coaster?

Physics
What is the minimum speed the rock can have without the string becoming "slack"? (The rock is traveling in vertical circle. Assume that m = 1.6 kg and r = 0.48 m.)

A soccer ball is kicked with an initial speed of 27 m/s at an angle of 20° with respect to the horizontal. A) find the maximum height reached by the ball. B) find the speed of the ball when it is at the highest point on its trajectory. C) where does the ball land? That is ...

Physics
A quarterback is asked to throw a football to a receiver that is 32.6 m away. What is the minimum speed that the football must have when it leaves the quarterback's hand? Ignore air resistance. Assume the ball is caught at the same height as it is thrown.

Physics
A cable attached to a block of mass 8 kg pulls the block along a horizontal floor at a constant velocity. If the tension in the cable is 5.3 N, what is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the floor?

Physics
Two children are playing on a 154-m-tall bridge. One child drops a rock (initial velocity zero) at t = 0. The other waits 1.1 s and then throws a rock downward with an initial speed v0. If the two rocks hit the ground at the same time, what is v0

Physics
A squirrel is resting in a tall tree when it slips from a branch that is 43 m above the ground. It is a very agile squirrel and manages to land safely on another branch after only 0.47 s. What is the height of the branch it lands on?
