A 20 meter long steel cable has density 2 kg per meter. It is hanging straight down. There is a 100 kg bucket of concrete attached to the bottom. How much work is required to lift the bucket 10 meters by lifting the cable ten meters? Gravitational force equals 9.8 in this problem. I tried to do the integration, separately for the top half and bottom half of the rope, but it didn't work.
A factory is located on one bank of a straight river that is 2000 m wide. On the opposite bank but 4500 m downstream is a power station from which the factory draws its electricity. Assume that it costs $3 per meter to lay an
Help: A 2 meter long, uniform bar with a mass of 46 kg is suspended from a pin so it can rotate freely. It is supported by a cable half a meter from the end. Find the tension force in the cable and the magnitude and direction of
A cable runs along the wall from C to P at a cost of $3 per meter, and straight from P to M at a cost of $5 per meter. If M is 16 meters from the nearest point A on the wall where P lies, and A is 50 mters from C, find the

a 10m long steel cable is lifting a 30 ton crate upward off a ship. If the cable streches by .5cm under these conditions, determine the radius of the steel cable. Young's modulus of steel :2x10raised to 9 Pa
A hollow steel buoy in thee form of a sphere of radius 0.5m is fixed by a wire to the base of a river. If the mass of the buoy is 20kg, calculate the tension in the cable. (Take density of water=1000 kilograms per cubic meter).
The diameter of a hydrogen atom is about 5×10^-11 meter. Suppose 8.4×10^8 hydrogen atoms were arranged side by side in a straight line. Multiply these numbers to find the length of this line of atoms. What is the length in
