I need formula/problem set ups for the following 2 problems: 1)Find The work done by the force in pulling an object on an inclined plane from A to B (ground level to top): Length of incline (like a hypotenuse): 30 m Height of incline (y axis): 10 m Force = 20 N object weight...

Recently there has been technological advances that allow for 3-D imaging up to kilometers away from an object. This can be done by using laser light that bounces off an object. By measuring the time it takes the laser light to get to the object and back, one can construct a ...

I have a question about fluids ok... I've been told that Pressure = (density of fluid) (gravity) (height) ok that's great in all but I don't see how it works... Pressure = (Force perinduclar to area force is acting on)/(Area force is acting on) ok this great and all but leads ...

Starting with the kinematics equation x = vot + ½ at^2, derive an expresion relating the acceleration and initial velocity of an object to two paired position and time measurements. In other words, if an object's position is x1 at t1, find the acceleration a and the inital ...

The kinetic energy K of an object of mass m moving at a speed v is defined as K=(1/2)mv^2. It seems reasonable to say that the speed of an object--and, therefore, its kinetic energy--can be changed by performing work on the object. In this problem, we will explore the ...

Leg traction is applied to a patient's leg as shown in the figure below. If the physician has requested a 57 N force to be applied to the leg, and the angle is θ = 60o , what mass m must be used for the object hanging from the massless cable? So < represents angle ...

An object falling under the pull of gravity is acted upon by a frictional force of air resistance. The magnitude of this force is approximately proportional to the speed of the object, which can be written as f = bv. Assume that b = 10 kg/s and m = 56 kg.

If an object is launched straight up into the air from a starting height of h_{0} feet, then the height of the object after t seconds is approximately h=-16t^2+v_{0}t+h_{0} feet, where v_{0} is the initial velocity of the object. Find the starting height and initial velocity ...
