If a .3kg arrow is fired at 120m/s at a 30degree angle with the horizontal, how high is it at the top of its arc? I'm confused. Do I break up the x and y components of velocity or do I set initial KE + PE = KE (top of arc)+ PE (top of arc) to get 1/2(.3)(120)*2+ 0 = 0 +.3(...

Thanks so much.

My problem is as follows "A 3 kg brick is dropped from a height of 1.0 m onto a nail which is vertically stuck in a plank of wood. If the nail doesn't move in much, how much heat is produced in the system when the brick hits and sticks onto the top of the nail." ...

If a ball is being lifted at a constant speed, does this mean that acceleration is 0 and therefore F=ma=0 and therefore no work is done on the ball?

Thank you.

I'm having a problem understanding a question. "If a man exerts a 200N force while pushing a crate 5.0 m across a floor against a frictional resistance of 40N, how much energy was expended by the person pushing?" I can figure out work done on the box and those so...

Thanks!

Regading my question yesterday about the ball being caught by the man on the scales (Sun. 3:47), I'm now wondering if, to get the final weight on the scales I need to add the actual ball's mass of .50 kg AS WELL AS the force of the ball on the man to his original weigh...

Thank you so VERY much!
