Using the fundamentals of thermodynamics, explain why we must continue to eat in order to maintain homeostasis?
A 400-g block of copper at a temperature of 85°C is dropped into 300 g of water at 33°C. The water is contained in a 250-g glass container. What is the final temperature of the mixture?
A force of 1300 lb compresses a spring from its natural length of 16 in to a length of 10 in. How much work is done in compressing it from 10 in to 6 in?
find the work done in winding up a 175 ft cable that weighs 4.00 lb/ft?
a disk has a mass of 2kg and a length of 2 meters and it oscillates about an axis that is 1.5 meters from the center of the disk. It is initially displaced at an angular displacement of 0.2 radians and released. A) What is the equation of motion? B)What is the kinetic energy a...
What is the gravitational force on a bar that is 3 meters long and has a density of 3x kg/m and lies 3 meters from a 2 kg point mass
A 2 kg steel ball strikes a wall with a speed of 8.15 m/s at an angle of 54.4◦ with the normal to the wall. It bounces off with the same speed and angle, as shown in the figure. If the ball is in contact with the wall for 0.243 s, what is the magnitude of the average for...
A 0.30 kg puck, initially at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface, is struck by a 0.20 kg puck that is initially moving along the x axis with a velocity of 2.8 m/s. After the collision, the 0.20 kg puck has a speed of 0.5 m/s at an angle of θ = 53° to the positiv...
