Homework Statement
There is a frictionless table 1 meter above the ground. A spring is on one end of the table with a constant of 200N*m that is compressed .5m by a block of 5kg. The block of 5kg is released and then collides with a 2kg block also sitting on the table.
a. Find the velocity...
Hey, I have heard a few things about tension I am unsure about and would like to check. Is it true if there is a string hanging with both ends and the same mass on each the tension is equal to the mass of one of the weights times gravity? (ex. on each end of hanging string and pulley 500N, so...
Hey, I ran into a few things about angular quantites and am a little confused on finding the number of revolutions something such as a tire would make. Would the distance traveled divided by a circumference of a circle equal the number of revolutions? I was finding that there are equations that...
It would cause a downward counter clockwise motion that is positive. The tension is greater for the string on A than B w/ more weight. The weights need to be converted to newtons and multiplied by 9.81 for gravity.
A 2-m long uniform rod AB is suspended horizontal by two vertical strings attached to the ends A and B. The rod has a mass of .6kg. A mass of 2kg suspended from the rod .8m from the end A. Determine the Tension in each string.
Hi, I have a physics worksheet I am trying to work on. This has...
Hi, I was told about Centripetal Motion and learned some about rides at the fairs. There is one ride with chairs hanging by a chain in a circle that simply rotates at a certain speed without turning at any angle. Does anyone understand why all of the chairs move up at the same angle even though...
Hi, I have a problem that says to solve this equation for the interval 0<theta<2 pie which is one revolution of the unit circle. The equation is:
(square root of 2)(cos 2theta) = 1
The cos2theta is a double angle, but I couldn't find any solutions for theta that would = 1 at the end. The...
Hi, I have a question about a problem:
1/2csc(THETA)sec(THETA)
I have to find the identity for it and I know that csc is 1/sin and sec is 1/cos but after that I don't see where it can lead to a simple answer. If anyone knows it would be helpful, thanks!
Hi I have a problem that reads: A car drives downhill on a road that is inclined 20 degrees to the horizontal. At a speed on 30 m/s the driver suddenly brakes until the car stops (coefficent of kinetic friction = .8, coefficent of static friction = .9).
A. When all of the wheels are locked...
