A skier with a mass of 88 kg

Richman Mwandira 2022-08-03

A skier with a mass of 88 kg hits a ramp of snow at 16 m/s and becomes
airborne. At the highest point of flight, the skier is 3.7 m above the ground.
What is the skier’s gravitational potential energy at this point?

If a tank holds 5000 gallons of water, which drains from the bttomof the tank in 40 minutes, then torricelli's Law gives the volume Vof water remaining in the tank after t minutes (1t402)5000=V0t40.
Find the rate at which water is draining from the tank after (a) 5min, (b) 10 min. At what time is the water flowing out the fastest?the slowest?

Starting with an initial speed of 5.00 m/s at a height of 0.300 m, a 1.50 kg ball swings downward and strikes a 4.60kg ballthat is at rest, as the drawing shows. a. using the principle of conservation of mechanicalenergy,find the speed of the 1.50 kg ball just before impact b. assuming that the collision is elastic, find the velocities( magnitude and direction ) of both balls just after thecollision c. how high does each abll swing after the collision, ignoringair resistance?

In a truck-loading station at a post office, a small 0.200-kg package is released from rest a point A on a track that is one quarter of a circle with radius 1.60 m.The size of the packageis much less than 1.60m, so the package can be treated at aparticle. It slides down the track and reaches point B with a speed of 4.80 m/s. From point B, it slides on a level surface a distanceof 3.00 m to point C, where is comes to rest. 
(a) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction on the horizontal surface? 
(b) How much work is done on the package by friction as it slides down the circular arc from A to B?
