I know that Divergent margins, also known as rifting or spreading centers, happen when two plates move away from one another. Convergent margins happen when two plates move towards on another. The last transform faults happen when plates move past each other grinding against ...

Each of two runners at either end of a 1907 m straight track jogs toward the other at a constant 4.00 m/s. Suppose that a fly were to go back and forth, essentially without a pause, from one runner to the other at an average speed of 13 m/s. How far will it have traveled in ...

A block of mass 0.570 kg is pushed against a horizontal spring of negligible mass until the spring is compressed a distance x. The force constant of the spring is 450 N/m. When it is released, the block travels along a frictionless, horizontal surface to point B, the bottom of...

Physics
Two stunt drivers drive directly toward each other. At time t=0 the two cars are a distance D apart, car 1 is at rest, and car 2 is moving to the left with speed v_0. Car 1 begins to move at t=0, speeding up with a constant acceleration a_x. Car 2 continues to move with a ...

Physics
A line of identical train cars collide inelastically. (They couple.) Three carts are initially coupled and moving at speed v: the rest are stationary. The three moving cars hit a fourth, then those four hit a fth, and so on. This continues until the speed of the "collection" ...
