physics
A rifle fires a 1.27 x 10-2-kg pellet straight upward, because the pellet rests on a compressed spring that is released when the trigger is pulled. The spring has a negligible mass and is compressed by 7.87 x 10-2 m from its unstrained length. The pellet rises to a maximum ...

physics
An explosion occurs at the end of a pier. The sound reaches the other end of the pier by traveling through three media: air, fresh water, and a slender metal handrail. The speeds of sound in air, water, and the handrail are 356, 1460, and 5400 m/s, respectively. The sound ...

Physics
A block of mass m = 3.65 kg is attached to a spring (k = 27.5 N/m) by a rope that hangs over a pulley of mass M = 7.30 kg and radius R = 2.81 cm, as shown in the figure. a) Treating the pulley as a solid homogeneous disk, neglecting friction at the axle of the pulley, and ...
