**physics**

It is a question which requires an unreasonable assumption, namely ignore air-resistance. Without air-resistance, time it takes to reach ground is t=sqrt(2H/g) =sqrt(2*10000/32.2) =24.9 s The horizontal velocity of the plane does not change the time required. If the dimensions...

a) correct. b) use t=sqrt(2h/g) Time to go up: h=5.1m Time fall back to the ground: h=7.1m Add the two times to get your answer.

Time to free-fall 35.56m = sqrt(2*S/g) = sqrt(2*35.56/9.81) = 2.6925 s Horizontal velocity does not change during free fall, so v= Dist/time = 10.36 m/2.6925s = 3.81 m/s

**Physics**

Horizontal velocity does not change in a free-fall, so time = distance/velocity = 146.8/29.33 = 5.0051 s. (keeping 5th significant fig.) Initial vertical velocity = 0 for free fall, so H=(1/2)at^2 =(1/2)*(-9.81)(5.0051^2) =-122.9 m Ans. the ground is 122.9m below the cliff.

Assuming zero friction, the additional force is the equilibrant. We have a force of +480 N and -920 N. The equilibrant is the negative of the vector sum, namely -(480-920)=440 N, i.e. 440 N in the same direction as the 480N force. If friction is present, some additional steps ...
