A helicopter carrying dr. evil takes off with a constant upward acceleration of $$\displaystyle{5.0}\ \frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}$$. Secret agent austin powers jumps on just as the helicopter lifts off the ground. Afterthe two men struggle for 10.0 s, powers shuts off the engineand steps out of the helicopter. Assume that the helicopter is infree fall after its engine is shut off and ignore effects of airresistance.
a) What is the max height above ground reached by the helicopter?
b) Powers deploys a jet pack strapped on his back 7.0s after leaving the helicopter, and then he has a constant downward acceleration with magnitude 2.0 m/s2. how far is powers above the ground when the helicopter crashes into the ground.

Grabbing a rope attached to a chandelier, heswings down to grapple with the movie's villian (mass 70.0 kg), whois standing directly under the chandelier.(assume that thestuntman's center of mass moves downward 5.0 m. He releasesthe rope just as he reaches the villian).

The unstable nucleus uranium-236 can be regarded as auniformly charged sphere of charge Q=+92e and radius $$\displaystyle{R}={7.4}\times{10}^{{-{15}}}$$ m. In nuclear fission, this can divide into twosmaller nuclei, each of 1/2 the charge and 1/2 the voume of theoriginal uranium-236 nucleus. This is one of the reactionsthat occurred n the nuclear weapon that exploded over Hiroshima, Japan in August 1945.
A. Find the radii of the two "daughter" nuclei of charge+46e.
B. In a simple model for the fission process, immediatelyafter the uranium-236 nucleus has undergone fission the "daughter"nuclei are at rest and just touching. Calculate the kineticenergy that each of the "daughter" nuclei will have when they arevery far apart.
C. In this model the sum of the kinetic energies of the two"daughter" nuclei is the energy released by the fission of oneuranium-236 nucleus. Calculate the energy released by thefission of 10.0 kg of uranium-236. The atomic mass ofuranium-236 is 236 u, where 1 u = 1 atomic mass unit $$\displaystyle={1.66}\times{10}^{{-{27}}}$$ kg. Express your answer both in joules and in kilotonsof TNT (1 kiloton of TNT releases 4.18 x 10^12 J when itexplodes).
In the figure, a cube of edge length L = 0.599 m and mass 970 kg is suspended by a rope in an open tank of liquid of density 1.05E+3 kg/m3. Find (a) the magnitude of the total downward force on the top of the cube from the liquid and the atmosphere, assuming atmospheric pressure is 1.00 atm, (b) the magnitude of the total upward force on the bottom of the cube, and (c) the tension in the rope. (d) Calculate the magnitude of the buoyant force on the cube using Archimede's principle.
As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use $$\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}$$ for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for $$\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}$$, since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.
A 10 kg objectexperiences a horizontal force which causes it to accelerate at 5 $$\displaystyle\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}$$, moving it a distance of 20 m, horizontally.How much work is done by the force?
