    Speed up a hill

    Homework Statement At the base of a frictionless icy hill that rises at 29.0deg above the horizontal, a toboggan has a speed of 12.0 m/s toward the hill. How high vertically above the base will it go before stopping? Homework Equations Wtot=K2-K1 K=1/2mv^2 K2=1/2mv^2=K1+Wtot The...

    Newton's Law Flat Curve

    my FBD has Fn opposite W on the Y axis. then at 28 deg from vertical i have Ft from the string-ceiling bus accompanied by Fc in opposite direction. is that all so far? i have tried getting components to sum the forces, but have had no luck getting anywhere.

    Uniform circular motion issue

    Homework Statement A woman rides on a Ferris wheel of radius 16 m that maintains the same speed throughout its motion. To better understand physics, she takes along a digital bathroom scale (with memory) and sits on it. When she gets off the ride, she uploads the scale readings to a computer...
