Given: there are 25 shots and 40% of the shots are made. Let the numbers from 1 to 40 represent a made shot, while the numbers from 41 to 100 represent a missed shot.
The following Ti83/Ti84 calculator command then generates 25 numbers from 1 to 100: randInt(1,100,25)
where randInt can be found in the MATH-menu under PRB.
Count the number of integers from 1 to 40 in the result to obtain the estimated number of shots made.
Given: there are 8 free throws and 75.2% of the free throws are made. Let the numbers from 1 to 752 represent a madde free throw, while the numbers from 753 to 1000 represent a missed free throw.
The following Ti83/Ti84 calculator command then generates 8 numbers from 1 to 1000: randInt(1,1000,8)
where randInt can be found in the MATH-menu under PRB.
Count the number of integers from 1 to 752 in the result to obtain the estimated number of free throws made.

A 75.0-kg man steps off a platform 3.10 m above the ground. Hekeeps his legs straight as he falls, but at the moment his feettouch the ground his knees begin to bend, and, treated as aparticle, he moves an additional 0.60 m before coming torest.
a) what is the speed at the instant his feet touch theground?
b) treating him as a particle, what is his acceleration(magnitude and direction) as he slows down, if the acceleration isassumed to be constant?
c) draw his free-body diagram (see section 4.6). in termsof forces on the diagram, what is the net force on him? usenewton's laws and the results of part (b) to calculate the averageforce his feet exert on the ground while he slows down. expressthis force in newtons and also as a multiple of his weight.
