A partridge of mass 5.01kg is suspended from a pear tree by an ideal spring of negligible mass. When the partridge is pulled down 0.100 m below its equilibrium position and released, it vibrates with a period of 4.20s . What is its speed as it passes through the equilibrium ...

An object is swinging from a point that is horizontal compared to the lowest point the object will reach (where the rope is vertical). If the length of the rope is 2 meters and the mass of the object is 30 kg, what is the tension in the rope at the bottom of the swing? Need ...

A thin uniform rod has mass M = 0.5 kg and length L= 0.49 m. It has a pivot at one end and is at rest on a compressed spring as shown in (A). The rod is released from an angle θ1= 55.0o, and moves through its horizontal position at (B) and up to (C) where it stops with &#...

Consider a rod plus disc system. The rod has a total length L =1.30 m, while the disc has a radius of R = L/2. The pivot is at P where the distance between P and the end of the rod is L/4. Point O is at the center of the disc, and the distance between O and P is 0.975 m. The ...

A 25kg child on a 2m long swing is released from rest when the swing supports make an angle of 30 degrees with the vertical. (a) Neglecting friction, find the child's speed at the lowest position. (b) If the speed of the child at the lowest position is 2m/s, what is the ...

Two physical pendulums (not simple pendulums) are made from meter sticks that are suspended from the ceiling at one end. The sticks are uniform and are identical in all respects, except that one is made of wood (mass = 0.17 kg) and the other of metal (mass = .85 kg). They are ...

"The exact relationship for the period T of a simple pendulum is T=2*pi*sqrt_of(l/g) where l is the length of the pendulum, and g is the acceleration of gravity." I have to rearrange the formula to where you solve for l instead of t. I started to try to do it, but I don't ...
