To measure the height of a tree, you throw a rock directly upward, with a speed just fast enough that the rock brushes against the uppermost leaves and then falls back to the ground. If the rock is in the air for 2.1 s, how tall is the tree?

A large rock that weighs 164.0 N is suspended from the lower end of a thin wire that is 3.00 m long. The density of the rock is 3200 kg/m^3. The mass of the wire is small enough that its effect on the tension in the wire can be neglected. The upper end of the wire is held ...

a rock weighing 20.0N falls from a height of 16.0m and sinks 0.600 m into the ground. from energy considerations, find the average force between the rock and the ground as the rock sinks. (avg. force) x (distance sunk) is the3 work done by the soil in decelerating the rock ...

You throw a 20 N rock into the air from ground level and observe that when it is 1 5.0 M high, it is traveling upward at 25.0 m/s. Use the work energy principle to find (a) the rock’s speed just as it left the ground and (b) the maximum height the rock will reach.
