A horizontal slingshot consists of two light, identical springs (with spring constants of 23.7 N/m) and a light cup that holds a 1.97-kg stone. Each spring has an equilibrium length of 50 cm. When the springs are in equilibrium, they line up vertically. Suppose that the cup ...

**Physics**

A stone is thrown up vertically from the ground (the gravitational acceleration is g = 10 m/s^2 ). After a time dt =1 s, a second stone is thrown up vertically. The first stone has an initial speed v1 = 11.0 m/s, and the second stone v2 = 16.0 m/s. (a) At what time after the ...

**Physics**

A stone has a mass of 6.00 10-3 kg and is wedged into the tread of an automobile tire, as the drawing shows. The coefficient of static friction between the stone and each side of the tread channel is 0.73. When the tire surface is rotating at a maximum speed of 17 m/s, the ...

**Phys. pendulum**

A pendulum consists of a mass of 3 kg tied to the end of a string of length 1.5 m. The pendulum is initially held at angle of 45o with the vertical and the pendulum is released. At the instant the mass passes through its lowest position it is 2 m above the ground and the ...
