**I JUST NEED THE STEPS ON HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS** An object experiences an acceleration of 6.8m/s^2. As a result, it accelerates from rest to 24m/s. How much distance did it travel during that acceleration? A car which is traveling at a velocity of 15m/s undergoes an ...

A car is traveling around a horizontal circular track with radius r = 240 m at a constant speed v = 25 m/s as shown. The angle èA = 34° above the x axis, and the angle èB = 65° below the x axis. I found the car's acceleration to be 2.6 m/s^2 (a=v^2/r). Now I need to know the x...

**Physics**

A car traveling at 20 m/s applies the brakes. The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the tires and the road are 0.80 and 0.50 respectively. (A) Determine the stopping distance if the car is able to stop as quickly as possible without skidding. (B) Determine ...

A passenger sitting in the rear of the bus claims that he was injured when the driver slammed on the brakes, causing a suitcase in front of the bus to come flying towards him. If you were the judge in this case, what disposition would you make and why?

Cathy takes the bus home from work. In her hand she holds a 2 kg cake box, tied together with a string. As she ascends the steps into the bus,the box accelerates upward at a rate of 2.5m/s^2. what is the force exerted on the string? Fg=ma =2*9.8 =19.6N Fn=ma-Fg =2*2.5-(-19.6...
