Homework Statement
A rectangular waterproof air mattress is 2.0m long, 0.50mwide and 0.08m thick. It has a mass of 2.0kg and is supporting an additional mass of m, while floating in the water,
calculate the mass, m, assuming the density of water is 1000kg/m^3 and density of air is...
So in state 1 there is potential energy, no kinetic energy. State 2 there's kinetic energy, where v is half of the max speed and there's potential energy and that's when we solve for x.
k. i got the answer, the max speed is 0.28m/s.
The next part of the question is, for what value of x does the speed equal one-half the maximum speed.
What i did was to solve for x with v = 1/2(max speed)
I got the answer wrong.
Can someone point out where i went wrong?
