If J is the midpoint of MN and JM=5x-5 and JN=4x+2, find the length of MN.
If P is the midpoint of RS and RS=17x-8 and RP=8x+1, find the values of x and PS.
Points A, B, and C are collinear, and C is between A and B. If AB=8x-4, BC=x+2, and AC=x^2, find the values of x.
When 6 gallons of gasoline are put into a car's tank the indicator goes from 1/4 of a tank to 5/8. What is the total capacity of the gas tank?
An electron is accelerated in the uniform field E = 2.0 x 104 N/C between two parallel charged plates (Negative charged plate is on the left and positively charges plate is on the right). The separation of the plates is 1.5 cm. The electron is accelerated from rest near the ne...
Imagine a car involved in a head-on crash. The driver, whose mass is m, is to be brought uniformly to rest within the passenger compartment by compressing an inflated air bag through a distance sc. Write an expression for the average force exerted on the bag in terms of m, vi,...
Show that if a satellite orbits very near the surface of a planet with period T, the density (mass per unit volume) of the planet is p(rho)=3pi/(GT)^2
If the mass of the Moon is 7.4 x 1022 kg and its radius is 1.74 x 106 m, compute the speed with which an object would have to be fired in order to sail away from it, completely overcoming the Moons gravity pull.
An 8.0 kg puck floating on an air table is travelling east at 15 cm/s. Coming the other way at 25 cm/s is a 2.0 kg puck on which is affixed a wad of bubble gum. The two slam head-on into each other and stick together. Find their velocity after the impact. How much kinetic ener...
