A gymnast of mass 61.0 kg hangs from a vertical rope attached to the ceiling. You can ignore the weight of the rope and assume that the rope does not stretch. How do I calculate the tension T in the rope if the gymnast hangs motionless on the rope? Also, what if the gymnast ...

In mid-nineteenth century England horses were often used to pull barges along canals. The horse, naturally, trudged along a path parallel to the canal and so the rope to the barge was at an angle to the motion of the barge. a) If such a horse was pulling with a force of 155 N ...

A winch is used to drag a 375 N crate up a ramp at a constant speed of 75 cm/s by means of a rope that pulls parallel to the surface of the ramp. The rope slopes upward at 33 degreesabove the horizontal, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the ramp and the crate is...

A water-skier is moving at a speed of 16.7 m/s. When she skis in the same direction as a traveling wave, she springs upward every 6.9 s because of the wave crests. When she skis in the direction opposite to the direction in which the wave moves, she springs upward every 4.2 s ...
