How do I solve this? Traveling at 60. mi/hr you see a dog in the road. Your reaction time to hit the brakes is 0.75 seconds and you can decelerate at 7.9 m/s^2. (1 mile = 1609 meters) A) How far do you travel from the moment you see the dog until the moment you hit the brakes...

A small motor is mounted on the axis of a space probe with its rotor (the rotating part of the motor) parallel to the axis of the probe. Its function is to control the rotational position of the probe about the axis. The moment of inertia of the probe is 6000 times that of the...

Would it be correct to say that inertia is the reason a moving object continues in motion when no force exists? I think that is correct. Inertia is the property that allows an object to continue moving in the same direction and at the same velocity unless acted upon by a force...
