A 4.51-kg box is sliding across the horizontal floor of an elevator. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the floor is 0.382. Determine the kinetic frictional force that acts on the box when the elevator is (a) stationary, (b) accelerating upward with an acc...
A rocket blasts off from rest and attains a speed of 30.4 m/s in 10.3 s. An astronaut has a mass of 60.1 kg. What is the astronaut's apparent weight during takeoff?
The sun is more massive than the moon, but the sun is farther from the earth. Which one exerts a greater gravitational force on a person standing on the earth? Give your answer by determining the ratio Fsun/Fmoon of the magnitudes of the gravitational forces. Use the data on t...
A space probe has two engines. Each generates the same amount of force when fired, and the directions of these forces can be independently adjusted. When the engines are fired simultaneously and each applies its force in the same direction, the probe, starting from rest, takes...
At an instant when a soccer ball is in contact with the foot of the player kicking it, the horizontal or x component of the ball's acceleration is 940 m/s2 and the vertical or y component of its acceleration is 710 m/s2. The ball's mass is 0.35 kg. What is the magnitud...
Two horizontal forces, F1-> and F2-> , are acting on a box, but only F1->is shown in the drawing. F2-> can point either to the right or to the left. The box moves only along the x axis. There is no friction between the box and the surface. Suppose that F1-> = +8...
A tiger can run at approximately 100 km/hr (27.7 m/s) and a zebra at 80 km/hr (22.2 m/s). If both animals are running at full speed, with the zebra 70.0 m ahead, how long before the tiger catches its prey? a) 12.6 s b) 25.2 s c) 6.30 s d) 10.7 s
If pump A and pump B work together, they can fill a pool in 4 hours. Pump A, working alone, takes 6 hours to fill the pool. How long would it take pump B, working alone, to fill the pool?
how do we derive the formula at=vf-vi if we will find acceleration? please have it step by step. Thank you
Please complete the formula and process in arriving the answer. Please. Thank you. Nathaniel is driving his sports car down a four lane highway at 40m/s. He comes up behind a slow moving dumptruck and decides to pass it in the left hand lane. If Nathaniel can accelerate at 5m/...
