Physics
A man standing on very slick ice fires a rifle horizontally. The mass of the man together with the rifle is 70 kg, and the mass of the bullet is 10g. Q:If the bullet leaves the muzzle at a speed of 500 m/s, what is the final speed of the man? I dont know how to set this up, help?

A compact car has a mass of 1400kg. Assume that the car has one spring on each wheel, that the springs are identical, and that the mass is equally distributed over the four springs. What is the spring constant of each spring if the empty car bounces up and down 1.9 times each ...

A 3.0-m-long rigid beam with a mass 130 kg is supported at each end. An 90 kg student stands 2.0 m from support 1. (beam 1 is to the left, and beam 2 is on the right.) How much upward force does support 1 exert on the beam? How much upward force does support 2 exert on the beam?

physics
A spring exerts a 17 N force after being stretched by 3.0 cm from its equilibrium length. By how much will the spring force increase if the spring is stretched from 5.0 cm away from equilibrium to 6.0 rm cm from equilibrium? I dont know how to approach this at all or how to so...

Flywheels are large, massive wheels used to store energy. They can be spun up slowly, then the wheel's energy can be released quickly to accomplish a task that demands high power. An industrial flywheel has a 1.5 m diameter and a mass of 250 kg. Its maximum angular velocit...

Physics
The centers of a 15 kg lead ball and a 140 g lead ball are separated by 8.0 cm. What gravitational force does each exert on the other? Answer: 2.2×10^−8 N Now: What is the ratio of this gravitational force to the weight of the 140 g ball? I dont know how to do this...

Physics
An object's moment of inertia is 2.5 kgm^2. Its angular velocity is increasing at the rate of 3.0 rad/s^2. What is the torque on the object? In N*m units

Physics
How much force does an 88 kg astronaut exert on his chair while sitting at rest on the launch pad? Answer: 860N Now the question: How much force does the astronaut exert on his chair while accelerating straight up at 14 m/s^2? What do you do first, how do you go about getting ...

physics
A loudspeaker of mass 24.0 {\rm kg} is suspended a distance of h = 2.20 {\rm m} below the ceiling by two cables that make equal angles with the ceiling. Each cable has a length of l = 3.30 {\rm m}. What is the tension T in each of the cables? Use 9.80 {\rm m/s}^2 for the magni...
