9)A car, moving along a straight stretch of highway, begins to accelerate at 0.0153 m/s 2 . It takes the car 29.2 s to cover 1 km. How fast was the car going when it ﬁrst began to accelerate? Answer in units of m/s

moving car runs into stationary car, (against a wall)car does not move, however, the wall push back cancelling the force. Explain Newton's law that apply. Thanks, George

A car has a mass of 1500 kg. If the driver applies the brakes while on a gravel road, the maximum friction force that the tires can provide without skidding is about 7000 N. If the car is moving at 18 m/s, what is the shortest distance in which the car can stop safely?

In one dimension, a 5g ball is moving to the right at 7 m/s collides with an 8g ball moving to the left at 4 m/s for a perfectly elastic collision. What is the final velocity of both balls? I just don't understand the whole left and right thing. I have already worked it out I ...

A 1000-kg aircraft going 25 m/s collides with a 1500-kg aircraft that is parked. They stick together after the collision and are moving at 10 m/s. If they skid for 30 seconds before stopping, how far (in meters) did they skid? Hint: Are the aircraft moving at a constant ...

A train moving at a constant speed of 68.0 km/h moves east for 36.0 min, then in a direction 48.0° east of due north for 30.0 min, and then west for 45.0 min. What is the average velocity of the train during this run?

A car travels at a speed of 25 m/s on a flat stretch of road. The driver must maitain pressure on the accelerator to keep the car moving at a constant speed. Are there any forces doing work on the car? Explain. What is the net force?
