physics
Consider a body falling through the air. The force due to air resistance is given by, F(air)=CAv^2, where C is the coefficient of air friction, A is the area facing the direction of the motion, and V is the velocity of the object with respect to the air. Take the value, C=0.88...

The heat of vaporization of ethyl alcohol is about 200 cal/g.If 2.4 kg of this fluid were allowed to vaporize in a refrigerator, find what mass of ice would be formed from 0 degree C water.

physics
A 9.0 kg iron ball is dropped onto a pavement from a height of 110 m.If half of the heat generated goes into warming the ball, find the temperature increase of the ball. (In SI units, the specific heat capacity of iron is 450 J/kg*degree C.)

physics
If you drop a piece of ice on a hard surface, the energy of impact will melt some of the ice. The higher it drops, the more ice will melt upon impact.Find the height from which a block of ice should ideally be dropped to completely melt it that falls without air drag. [Hint: E...

when a car goes around an 8-km track in 20-minutes. what is the average speed and velocity.

Physics
Light waves with two different wavelengths, 632 nm and 474 nm, pass simultaneously through a single slit whose width is 7.63 x 10-5 m and strike a screen 1.30 m from the slit. Two diffraction patterns are formed on the screen. What is the distance (in cm) between the common ce...

4 Consider an airplane with a total wing surface of 90 m^2. At a certain speed the difference in air pressure below and above the wings is 4.2% of atmospheric pressure. Find the lift on the airplane.

physics
What would be the final temperature of a mixture of 50 g of 15 degrees C water and 50 g of 40 degrees C water?
