    Final mark?

    I just have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I just finished a physics course where the final exam weighs at 40% of my final mark while the assignments weight at 60% which =100% total For my assignments I got a terrible 843.99 out of 1,408. I'm not quite sure what I got...

    Work done and friction problem

    A force of 52 N is applied to a 12 kg mass resting on a bench where the force of sliding friction is 15 N. The work done in overcoming friction while moving the object 24 m is w=fd w=(37N)(24m) w=888J Does this procedure seem correct ? :) Thank you!

    Height of stairs

    A 65.0 kg student climbs a set of stairs in 25.0 s with a power output of 95 W. What is the vertical height of the stairs? I came up with the formula: W=P x (delta t) W=95w(25.0s) 2375 Im not sure how this comes in to play: W = mg (delta h) Im really confused :|

    Sound frequency

    A 245 Hz sound with a wavelength of 1.41 m is projected into a narrow canyon. If the canyon is 1.50 km long, what time does it take an echo to be heard? How would I solve for this question? :)

    Initial velocity

    What formula would I use to find the initial velocity? An object is thrown vertically into the air and reaches a height of 30.0 m. Neglecting air friction, what was the object’s initial velocity? I dont quite remember how to do this. Is it 30.0m / 9.81[m/s]^2?

    Frequency and length

    . If the speed of sound in air is 343 m/s and the frequency of the tuning fork is 225 Hz, what is the length of the air column shown in the diagram? wavelength= v ÷ f wavelength =343[m/s] ÷ 225[Hz] wavelength =1.52 m I'm not feeling this is right, what am I doing wrong? Is length and...

    Students were testing their hearing range

    In an experiment, students were testing their hearing range and found that it averaged about 25 Hz to 18 000 Hz. What are the wavelengths of sound waves producing these frequencies in air where the speed of sound is 343 m/s? Would I use the formula wavelength= velocity/ frequency...

    How much work does gravity do on the car

    A car of mass 1500 kg rolls down a hill for a distance of 150 m. If the road makes an angle of 15º with the horizontal, how much work is done on the car by the force of gravity? would I use the formula W=fdcosº w=(f)(150m)(15º) For force would I convert 1500kg into newtons and plug...

    Calculate the power of the crane

    A crane uses a force of 2.3 x 103 N of force to lift a steel ball 32.0 m in 1300 s, calculate the power of the crane. Would i use the equation: p=force x displacement /time (2.3x10^3n)(32m)/1300s?

    Asteroid orbit physics problem

    An asteroid is orbiting around the sun at a distance of 4.2x 1011 m. If the Earth orbits around the Sun at a distance of 1.5 x 1011 m with a period of 3.2 x107 s, what is the period of the asteroid? Im thinking it was 9.0 x 10^7 s ?

    Wavelengths in a ripple tank experiment

    In a ripple tank experiment, students generate water waves at a speed of 4.0 cm/s and a wavelength of 0.5 cm. If the waves are refracted into shallower water where their speed decreases to 3.0 cm/s, what is their new wavelength? What would the formula be for this question?

    Force of water on falling bag

    At an altitude of 315 m above a lake, a hot-air balloon pilot drops a 2.50 kg sandbag. If the bag comes to a stop 4.50 m below the surface of the lake, what force was applied by the water on it? I was thinking v= 2.50kg x 9.81km/h= 24.525m/s i cant remember how to get the force

    Exerted force 40N and 40N?

    If a student out fishing pulls on a fish with a force of 40 N and the fish pulls back with a force of 40 N, what is the force exerted on the student and the fish at the same time? 40+40= 80N? is that correct?

    Exerted force?

    A 950 kg car starts from rest and reaches a velocity of 50.0 km/h in 8.50 s. If the driver has a mass of 75.0 kg, what force is exerted on the car and driver during this time interval? I am very confused on this question. I was thinking: 950kg+750.kg=1025 50.0/3.6 =13.88 +8.5 = 22.38s...
