If a completely cylindrical bar with a mass of 5000kg is flung into a wall with a surface area of 500un^2 and is morphed into a square at 50NMC/m at 40 degrees tangent to the area of initial impact. What is the length of the sides?

    Try drawing all the vectors and their rates for EACH stage and see if that helps.
    Your final answer should be:
    If you still can't get it don't be afraid to ask for an explanation.

  2. I get:
    all at E of S of the radius

    VecE=27.8m/s at N of W
    VecF=101.1m/s in a linear spiral

    Final= 1.87m
    Which of my vectors are wrong?

  3. Your F stage vector should be 784.3m/s in a spiral is correct.

    My guess is you didn't take [4(pi)SA^3] when finding F (:
