    Spinning spokes and clay

    Homework Statement A device consists of eight balls each of mass 0.78kg attached to the ends of low-mass spokes of length 2.2m, so that the radius of rotation of the balls is 1.1m. The device is mounted in the vertical plane. The axle is held up by supports that are not shown, and the wheel is...

    What is the direction of the red ball's angular momentum

    Vector C will be perpendicular to both A & B. The angle will be between 0 and 180 degrees A x B = A B sin([PLAIN]https://www.physics.uoguelph.ca/tutorials/torque/theta.gif) [Broken] not familiar with right hand rule but I'm trying to learn it right now

    What is the direction of the red ball's angular momentum

    Unfortunately that info is not given, but if we assumed it was down wouldn't the answer just be same as momentum?

    Car and truck collide

    Larger, I mean the energy from the collision is so much larger than the road.

    Car and truck collide

    The collision is so short that you can just neglect the road? And because the road will have such a tiny affect since the collision is so much larger?

    Car and truck collide

    Im honestly kinda lost here, it it because the collision is between the car and truck, so the system is the car and truck, making the road be neglected?

    Car and truck collide

    Homework Statement What is the x-component of the velocity of the stuck-together car and truck just after the collision? speed= -7.32352941176471 m/s You are correct. c) In your analysis in part (b), why can you neglect the effect of the force of the road on the car and truck? Homework...

    Block and the bullet

    (m+M)gh+ksh=1/2(m+M)V^2 the spring constant should be 1/2ksh^2 not ksh (m+M)gh+1/2ksh^2=1/2(m+M)V^2 (m+M)v+ksh=(m+M)V Ugrav should be (m+M)gh instead of velocity multiplying the masses (m+M)v, also (m+M)V is missing V^2

    Momentum of two carts

    Homework Statement Two identical carts A and B roll down a hill and collide as shown in the figure below. i) A starts from rest. It rolls down and collides head-on with B which is initially at rest on the ground. The two carts stick together. ii) A and B are at rest on opposite sides of the...

    Is it a good idea to fire a shotgun against a tree?

    It would move more, resulting in a big mistake. I really liked the example you used, made it very easy to think through the concept, thank you.
