**Physics Mechanics (unsolved)**

An electron of mass 9.1E-31 kg is released from rest at a distance of 7.1 E-10 m from a fixed electron. The force on the movable electron is given by the function F = 2.3E-28/r^2, where r is the distance between the electrons. Find the maximum velocity (in meters/second) of ...

An umbrella with a diameter of 1 m turns 22 rev every 44 seconds. If it's 1.5 m from the ground, calculate the time it takes for a drop to reach the ground and the distance away from the umbrella a person should stand so as to not get wet. For this problem I made a = (0, -g) ...

**physic's problem**

GPE = MASS X GRAVITY X HEIGHT GRAVITY IS ALWAYS 10 M/S 2 (SQUARED) KE = 1/2 X MASS X SPEED 2 (SQUARED) I am uncertain what your question is. As a matter of interest, the value of 10m/s^2 for the acceleration of gravity is in error, in fact, it is never that value, but is less...

This is also another problem that I'm having trouble on. A motorboat can maintain a constant speed of 16 miles per hour relative to the water. The boat makes a trip upstream to a certain point in 20 minutes; the return trip takes 15 minutes. What is the speed of the current? ...

**math**

the force of gravity varies inversely as the square of the distance between the centers of the two masses. If an object weighs 500 pounds at a distance of 12,000 miles from the center of the earth, at what distance will the weight be 50 pounds
