In a fast-pitch softball game the pitcher is impressive to watch, as she delivers a pitch by rapidly whirling her arm around so that the ball in her hand moves in a circle. In one instance, the radius of the circle is 0.608 m. At one point on this circle, the ball has an ...

A bomber flies horizontally with a speed of 175 m/s relative to the ground. The altitude of the bomber is 4780 m and the terrain is level. Neglect the effects of air resistance. gravity is 9.8 m/s a) How far from the point vertically under the point of release does a bomb hit ...

So this is the problem: A comet is in an elliptical orbit around our Sun. At its point of closest approach, it is moving at 6.3x10^4 m/s and is 4.2x10^10m away from the sun. When it is at the farthest distance, 7.5x10^12m away, how fast is it going? This is what I did K1+U1=K2...

Starting from rest at t = 0 s, a wheel undergoes a constant angular acceleration. When t = 1.6 s, the angular velocity of the wheel is 5.9 rad/s. The acceleration continues until t = 19 s, when the acceleration abruptly changes to 0 rad/s2. Through what angle does the wheel ...

A car is initially travelling at 30m/s, which is above the speed limit. The driver sees a speed limit trap ahead and applies the brakes for 5 seconds, causing the car to slow down by 2m/s every second while the brakes are on. How far does the car travel while the brakes are ...
