A 730-N man stands in the middle of a frozen pond of radius 5.0 m. He is unable to get to the other side because of a lack of friction between his shoes and the ice. To overcome this difficulty, he throws his 1.2 kg physics textbook horizontally toward the north shore , at a speed of 5.0 m/s. How long does ittake him to reach the south shore?
An adventurous archaeologist crosses between two rock cliffs by slowly going hand-over-hand along a rope stretched between the cliffs. He stops to rest at the middle of the rope (Fig. 1) The rope will break if the tension in it exceeds N and our hero's mass is 86.5 kg.
Figure 1 a) If the angle is , find the tension iin the rope.
b) What is the smallest value the angle can have if the rope is not to break?
A 1.0 kg ball and a 2.0 kg ball are connected by a 1.0-m-long rigid, massless rod. The rod is rotating cw about its center of mass at 20 rpm. What torque will bring the balls to a halt in 5.0 s? Answer in Nm.
A 0.450 kg ice puck, moving east with a speed of has a head in collision with a 0.900 kg puck, initially at rest. Assuming a perfectly elastic collision what will be the speed and direction of each object after the collision?
At a certain location, wind is blowing steadily at 10 m/s. Determine the mechanical energy of air per unit mass and the power generation potential of a wind turbine with 60-m-diameter blades at that location. Take the air density to be .
A rocket starts from rest and moves upward from the surface of the earth. For the first 10.0 s of its motion, the vertical acceleration of the rocket is given by )t, where the + y-direction is upward. (a) What is the height of the rocket above the surface of the earth at t = 10.0 s? (b) What is the speed of the rocket when it is 325 m above the surface of the earth?
