math - incomplete
speed increases at a rate of 1.2m/s/? If the speed increases, the value (m/s) increases by 1.2m.s every how often? acceleration is not measured as m/s. It looks to me like you should have written the acceleration is 1.2m/s^2, and you want to find how long it takes the speed to...

Your movement relative to the bus is the speed of your walking. Relative to the ground, it would be the difference between your speed and the speed of the bus. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

The velocity of pulling in the line is is V = w * R , which means Linear speed = (Angular speed)*(Radius) = 2.1m/9.7s = 0.2165 m/s Angular speed = 0.2165/0.3 = 0.7216 rad/s

a patrol of timing paths each vehicle needs to travel the first half of the distance at a speed of 140 km / h. if the speed limit is 80km / h. which should be the highest average speed of the car in the second half of the section, to avoid being fined?

a steel ball drops onto a thick steel plate. its speed just before it hits is 10 m/s and it rebounds with a speed of 9 m/s. what percentage of its kinetic energy did it lose during the collision? what would you expect its speed to be after the second rebound?

u = boat speed u-3 = upstream speed u+3 = downstream speed distance = speed * time 35 = (u-3) * 5/6 210 = 5u - 15 225 = 5u 45 = u downstream, 35 = 48 * t t = 35/48 t = 0.729 hr = 43min 45 sec

I'm still confused. to find angular speed = tnngenital speed/radius, would the radii cancel out, leaving only the tangential speed? still confused as to set up

average speed= .35rev/s so in 2.9 seconds, it goes... b) well, when it is half done, 2.9/2 seconds has elapsed. average speed= (.7+.35)/2 rev= avg speed*2.9/2 revs.

With no river flow, the boat crosses the river at 90/4 = 22.5 meters/min. With river flow, it's speed relative to water is the same as above, but it crosses at a speed of 90/5 = 18 m/min, relative to and perpendicular to the shore. Consider the vector right triangle with sides...
