A 2 kg pendulum bob is hanging from a 30 cm long piece of string. If the pendulum bob is allowed to move in circular motion in a horizontal plane, determine the tension in the string if the angle the string makes with the vertical is 37 degrees. Need Step by step solution.

An anvil hanging vertically from a long rope in a barn is pulled to the side and raised like a pendulum 1.6 m above its equilibrium position. It then swings to its lowermost point where the rope is cut by a sharp blade. The anvil then has a horizontal velocity with which it ...

A circular shop sign of mass 10kg is to be hung from the wall of the shop. The sign hangs from a light, rigid horizontal support of length 0.48m that is hinged to the wall at one end A. The other end B of the support is attached by a model string to a point C at a distance 0....

The pendulum bobs in the figure are made of soft clay so that they stick together after impact. The mass of bob B is 14 times that of bob A. Bob B is initially at rest. If bob A is released from a height h above its lowest point, what is the maximum height attained by bobs A ...

My problem is as follows "A 3 kg brick is dropped from a height of 1.0 m onto a nail which is vertically stuck in a plank of wood. If the nail doesn't move in much, how much heat is produced in the system when the brick hits and sticks onto the top of the nail." I know PE is ...

Refer to the equation you derived in exercise (4). Assume that 1 y = 0.30m and 2 y = 0.10 m. What is the initial total mechanical energy if the pendulum is released from rest? What is the speed of the pendulum bob at the lowest point if the total mechanical energy is conserved?
