Can someone let me know if I'm going in the right direction.
The electrical force on a 2-columb charge is 60 newtons, What iis the magnitude of the electric field?
E =f/q
E= 60/2
E=30
If a charge of +3 x 10 -6columbs sets up an electrical field, find:
a. The magnitude of...
I'm trying to grasp the concept between Electric Potential and Electric Potential Energy.
A charge object has an electric potential,
and electric potential =
electric potential energy/charge
I still can't explain the difference between the two(Electric Potential vrs Electric...
I can't find formula for determing the number of rotations a wheel makes in one minute.
Diameter = 26"
Traveling at 20 feet per second.
is there a formula for RPM?
Also need the formula to determine angular velocity.
thanks
T = 2*pi * Sqrt 1/g
Is this the proper formula for finding the period of a pendulm?
The length = 0.9 meters
g= 9.8m/s^2
I come up with 1.90s..
am I going in right direction?
A motorcyclist intends to perform a stunt in which he jumps a 25meter wide river.
The motorcyclist must jump from a cliff on one-side 20 meters lower than the other side.
The motorcyclist approaches the cliff at 50m/s
What formula should I use to solve for
the Horizontal direction...
A Ferris wheel has a radius of 8 meters and rotates once every 15 seconds.
A 10:1 scale model of the Ferris wheel also rotates once every 15 seconds.
Which has the higher Angular Velocity?
Solution: angular velocity = Change in rotation/change in time
Do I use the formula v = rw...
Problem:
What is the acceleration of a 20kg pail of cement that is pulled upward (not sideways)
with a force of 300N.
let g= 10m/s^2
Answer:
20kg*10m/s^2 = 200N
a = (300N-200N)/20kg
a = 5m/s^2
The book gives me the answer as 2m/s^2...
did I miss something? I beleive this to be a...
In the terms of rotational inertia why is it hard to walk without bending your knees?
The greater the bulk of the object mass to its axis the greater its rotational inertia.
how can I relate that to walking without bending knees?
I understand that with rotational inertia an object...
I can define both terms Linear Speed, Rotational speed,
but I need to find the formula difference so I can show how
rotational speed is changed to linear Speed.
I can not find the formula for either.
So are you saying I should:
1/2 mv^2 = mgh
1/2 v^2/g=h
1/2(10^2/9.8)=5.1m
The text book I have in no way explains this, if this is correct
where can I get other sources of help on physics
The question is:
If a sprinter running at 10 meters per second could convert his
kinetic energy into upward motion, how high could he jump?
How do I solve this if I use the KE = 1/2 mv^2
I dont know what the mass is?
If a 1000 kilogram car is lifted 1 meter what is its potential energy
with respect to the floor?
I used the following to solve,
PE = mgh
1000 * 1 + 1000PE
Is this the correct formula for solving for PE.
I am confused with the relationship potential energy and height.
I understand that in a vaccum there is no air resistance, What I don't understand about the question is how mass effects acceleration.
In a vaccum objects will fall without resistance of air.
In the pressence of air resistance I understand you have resistance.
I guess I getting confused...
this question ask
How does mass affect the rate of acceleration in free fall:
a. In air?
b. In a vacuum?
If I understand Newtons' Second law all objects in free fall have the same acceleration.
I don't get the question for vaccum.
In my text it does not talk about normal force it list Applied force, net force, and support force.
the formula (mg) would be (50kg*g) how do you determine g=1
I'm doing self study on physic course I'm reviewing self test and
have question on force.
A 50-kilogram student stands in an elevator. How much force does she
exert on the elevator floor if:
The elevator is stationary?
For the above would it be true to say that if the elevator...
My question I don't understand how to add a colums for total distance.
Construct a table of values of velocity and total distance fallen at the end
of each half-second during the first 5 seconds for a stone at rest dropped
from a very tall building. Include columns for time, velocity, and...
How do I use Kinematic equation with constant velocity.
I only have used with intital and final velocity.
A parachute dropped from a 30-meter-high cliff falls with a constant
velocity of 1.5 meters per second. Twenty-two seconds later a stone is
dropped from the cliff.
a. How long...
Thanks to all

Apply the formula which i have quoted i.e.
x= x_0 + v_0t+(1/2)at^2
here x-x_0= - 54.4
v_0=0
a=-g
My text only includes a few formulas.
This is my first course I learning distance study.
this one looks like yours.
d = v_i * t + 1/2 * a * t^2

Physics 101
I guess I should have mentioned that this is my first taking a physics course.
I reviewed the text and came up with the folowing.
t=d/v ave
54.4/9.8m/s^2
I came up with 17.4 seconds.
I need to know where to start, any good books to help out I'm taking a self study course. I have some study guide from Army education center. I am waiting for video course show up.
