A rescue plane wants to drop supplies to isolated mountain climbers on a rocky ridge H = 231 m below. If the plane is traveling horizontally with a speed of 227 km/h (63.1 m/s), how far in advance of the recipients (horizontal distance) must the goods be dropped? Suppose, ...

A 52 g mountain climber, start from rest, climbs a vertical distance of 730 m. At top, she is again at rest. In the process, her body generates 4.1*10^6 J of energy via metabolic processes. Her body acts like a heat engine with efficiency ( W/Q_h.) W is the magnitude of work ...
