a bicyclist and his bike have a combined mass of 105 kg. He is traveling at 15.0 m/s along the path when he sees a fallen tree 4 m in front of him. In order to stop before hits the tree, find the boy's minimum acceleration and the minimum force that must be applied. Thank You...

A robot probe drops a camera off the rim of a 239 m high cliff on Mars, where the free-fall acceleration is -3.7 m/s^2. a) Find the velocity with which the camera hits the ground. b) Find the time required for it to hit the ground. Ok so I'm not even sure of which equation to ...

(a) Calculate the kinetic energy that the earth has because of its rotation about its own axis. Assume that the earth is a uniform sphere and that its path around the sun is circular. For comparison, the total energy used in the United States in one year is about 9.33e9 Joules...

A rock is dropped from a sea cliff and the sound of it striking the ocean is heard 3.9 s later. If the speed of sound is 340 m/s, how high is the cliff? i know you use the equation y=(initial velocity)(time) + (1/2)(acceleration)(time^2) but I'm having problems putting all the...

I need to determine maximum tension/down force with a pendulum. I need to use the lightest string possible to: -support a 16kg bob, with -a velocity of 4m/s -with a swing radius of 2m -at it's equilibrium (ie 0 degrees) -given standard gravity. using T=m(V^2/r)+(g*cos(x)) The ...
