Physics
A ball is launched with a velocity of 10 m/s at an angle of 50.0 degrees to the horizontal. The launch point is at the base of a ramp of horizontal length 6.00 m and 3.60 m high. A plateau is located at the top of the ramp. a) Does the ball land on the ramp or plateau? Justify...

Physics (Rolling)
In Fig. 11-35, a solid brass ball of mass m will roll smoothly along a loop-the-loop track when released from rest along the straight section. The circular loop has radius R, and the ball has radius r << R. (a) What is h if the ball is on the verge of leaving the track ...

Physics
A mass sits at the top of a 2 meter long ramp inclined at an angle of 30 degrees (to the horizontal). When the mass is released, it slides down the ramp and then onto a level floor. If both the ramp and the board have a coefficient of .25 (Friction), how far out onto the floor...

Physics
Maricruz slides a 66 kg crate, m, up an inclined ramp 2.0 m long and attached to a platform 1.0 m above floor level, as shown in Figure 10-19. A 415 N force, F, parallel to the ramp, is needed to slide the crate up the ramp at a constant speed. (a) How much work does Maricruz ...

physics
A 15 kg crate is held with a rope at the top of a metal ramp that has an incline of 25(degrees) with the horizontal. The rope breaks and slides down the ramp a distance of 5.50 meters before it hits the floor. If the coefficient of friction between the crate and the metal ramp...
