Physics
A single conservative force acts on a 5.00 kg particle. The equation Fx = (2x + 4) N describes this force, where x is in meters. As the particle moves along the x axis from x = 1.40 m to x = 5.80 m, calculate the following. (a) the work done by this force on the particle (b) ...

Physics
Estimate the terminal speed of a wooden sphere (density 0.770 g/cm3) falling through air, if its radius is 9.00 cm and its drag coefficient is 0.500. (The density of air is 1.20 kg/m3.) (b) From what height would a freely falling object reach this speed in the absence of air ...

Physics: fictitious forces
A plumb bob does not hang exactly along a line directed to the center of the Earth's rotation. How much does the plumb bob deviate from a radial line at 39.0° north latitude? Assume that the Earth is spherical. This was in my textbook with an angle of 35 instead of 39 ...

Physics
An iron bolt of mass 80.0 g hangs from a string 38.8 cm long. The top end of the string is fixed. Without touching it, a magnet attracts the bolt so that it remains stationary, displaced horizontally 28.0 cm to the right from the previously vertical line of the string. (a) ...
