Homework Statement
I'm doing an experiment where I have to calculate the stretch of a spring needed for it to launch itself into a trashcan located some distance away. The spring is located on the edge of a ramp that is 1.13 m high. The angle of the ramp is 30 degrees above horizontal. The...
Homework Statement
A girl is riding a bicycle along a straight road at constant speed, and passes a friend standing at a bus stop (event #1). At a time of 60 s later the friend catches a bus (event #2)
If the distance separating the events is 126 m in the frame of the girl on the bicycle...
no when you add the 3 equations together you only have 2 unknowns. Then if you find the acceleration (7.35) and solve for mC you get 39 kg, which seems to be the correct answer.
Homework Statement
Block B, with mass 5.00kg, rests on block A, with mass 8.00kg , which in turn is on a horizontal tabletop. There is no friction between block A and the tabletop, but the coefficient of static friction between block A and block B is 0.750. A light string attached to block A...
##D_A + 6.69 = D_B##
It took me a while, but I finally found meaning behind this equation...
displacement of rock A: ##D_A = -6.69 m [up]##, and B: ##D_B = 0 m.##
-6.69 + 6.69 = 0, brilliant!
Homework Statement
Two stones are thrown simultaneously, one straight upward from the base of a cliff and the other straight downward from the top of the cliff. The height of the cliff is 6.69 m. The stones are thrown with the same speed of 9.97 m/s. After what time do the stones cross paths...

Homework Statement
We calculated times of the periods of varying pendulum lengths. (20cm, 40cm, 60cm, 80cm). Then the frequency was calculated for each length and then a frequency-length graph was made. Since the graph is an exponential relationship we graphed our values on a log-log chart...
