A 50 kg crate is initially at rest on a plane inclined at an angle of 30 degrees to the horizontal. A man then pulls the crate up the incline via a rope that is parallel to the inclined plane. The tension that the man imparts to the rope is 100 N, and the coefficient of ...

A small mass m swings in a horizontal circle of radius r at the end of a string of length Li and negligible mass, which makes an angle i with the vertical. The string is slowly shortened (for example by pulling it through a hole in its support) until the final length is Lf ...

Jane, looking for Tarzan, is running at top speed (3.6 m/s) and grabs a vine hanging vertically from a tall tree in the jungle. How high can she swing upward? Does the length of the rope matter?

A pendulum consists of a small object hanging from the ceiling at the end of a string of negligible mass. The string has a length of 0.77 m. With the string hanging vertically, the object is given an initial velocity of 1.8 m/s parallel to the ground and swings upward in a ...
