you travel down the highways, starting from rest. You travel for 2 hours at a speed of 105 km/h. then you stop and eat your lunch for 30 minutes. Then you travel for 1.5 hours at 75km/hr. Make a distance vs time graph of this motion.

A 25-g lead bullet is shot with a speed of 240 m/s into a wooden wall. Assuming that 70% of the kinetic energy is absorbed by the bullet as heat (and 30% by the wall), what is the final temperature of the bullet? (Assume the bullet is initially at room temperature of 20C.

PHYSICS HELP MEEE SO CONFUSED
1) From the height H that the block+bullet rises, assuming conservation of energy for the process, calculate the initial velocity V' of the block after the bullet is embedded. (m+M) V'^2/2 = (m+M) g H V' = sqrt(2 g H) = 2.62 m/s 2) Momentum (but not mechanical energy) is ...

In relative distance, you travel 2.7x2 meters. Your relative velocity is 9km/hr (change to m/s). time to pass: relative distance/relative speed Now, with that time; how far did you travel.. distance=your speed*time.

Calculus Help
A high-speed bullet train accelerates and decelerates at the rate of 4 ft/s2. Its maximum cruising speed is 90 mi/h. (Round your answers to three decimal places.) (a) What is the maximum distance the train can travel if it accelerates from rest until it reaches its cruising ...

physics
The momentum of the bullet equals the momentum of the block/bullet after impact. the energy of the block/bullet converts to potential energy in rising to the height. So work backwards, and solve for velocity of the bullet.

Physics Honors
A bullet is fired from a rifle, emerging at 340 m/s. It strikes a sandbag some distance away, having lost 10% of its velocity due to air resistance. if it penetrates the sandbag to a depth of 12 meters, how long did it take for the bullet to come to rest in the bag?
