As a particle moves along the x axis it is acted upon by a single conservative force given by Fx = (20 - 4,0x) N where x is in m. The potential energy associated with this force has the value +30 J at the origin 9x =0). What is the value of the potential energy at x = 4.0 m?

A 63-kg ice-skater glides with a speed of 10 m/s toward a 14-kg sled at rest on the ice. The ice-skater reaches the sled and holds on to it. The ice-skater and the sled then continue sliding in the same direction in which the ice-skater was originally skating. What is the ...

Radio waves of wavelength 163 m from a galaxy reach a radio telescope by two separate paths as shown in the figure below. One is a direct path to the receiver, which is situated on the edge of a tall cliff by the ocean, and the second is by reflection off the water. As the ...

A 64.8 kg ice skater is skating along in a straight line (in the positive direction) at 9.2 m/s when he bends down and scoops up his 24.4 kg doggy sitting still on the ice. What will be the new velocity of the dog-n-skater?
