Homework Statement
A game uses a spring launcher to shoot a puck with mass of 0.5kg along a frictionless track as shown in the diagram. The spring has a k value of 600 N/m. By how much does the spring need to be compressed to launch the puck and have it go around the inside of the loop...
Homework Statement
An 80 kg stuntman is shot from a cannon at a circus. The cannon is 3m in length and angled at 35 degrees above the level floor. The landing cusion is 30m away from the cannon. What velocity will the stuntman have 1)when he leaves the cannon and 2)when he first hits the...
Homework Statement
Consider the problem of a car traveling along a banked turn. Sometimes roads have a "reversed" banking angle. That is the road is tilted "away" from the center of curvature of the road. The coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is \mus=0.50, the...
Homework Statement
Jeff Gordon (a race-car driver) discovers that he can accelerate at 4.0m/s2 without spinning his tires, but if he tries to accelerate more rapidly he always "burns rubber."
Find the coefficient of friction between his tires and the road. Assume the force from the engine is...
Homework Statement
Your moving company runs out of rope and hand trucks, so you are forced to push two crates along the floor. The crates are moveing at constant velocity, their masses are m1=45kg and m2=22kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between both crates and the floor are 0.35...
