A street light is at the top of a 15.000 ft. tall pole. A man 6.300 ft tall walks away from the pole with a speed of 6.000 feet/sec along a straight path. How fast is the tip of his shadow moving when he is 45.000 feet from the pole?

8. A 4.70 m long pole is balanced vertically on its tip. What will be the speed (in meters/second) of the tip of the pole just before it hits the ground? (Assume the lower end of the pole does not slip.) I did V^2=0^2+2(9.8)(4.70) and was wrong. I did remember to square root ...

A light string that is attached to a large block of mass 4m passes over a pulley with negligible rotational inertia and is wrapped around a vertical pole of radius r. The system is released from rest, and as the block descends the string unwinds and the vertical pole with its ...

A wind storm caused a 64 ft pole to lean due easwt at an angle of 63.8 degrees to the ground. A 106 ft long guy wire is then attached to the top of the pole and anchored in the ground due west of the foot of the pole. How far from the foot of the pole is the guy wire anchored?
