    Galilean transformation problem (Speed)

    Homework Statement A girl is riding a bicycle along a straight road at constant speed, and passes a friend standing at a bus stop (event #1). At a time of 60 s later the friend catches a bus (event #2) If the distance separating the events is 126 m in the frame of the girl on the bicycle...

    A pulley system with two objects stacked on each other

    no when you add the 3 equations together you only have 2 unknowns. Then if you find the acceleration (7.35) and solve for mC you get 39 kg, which seems to be the correct answer.

    Finding the time when two stones cross paths

    ##D_A + 6.69 = D_B## It took me a while, but I finally found meaning behind this equation... displacement of rock A: ##D_A = -6.69 m [up]##, and B: ##D_B = 0 m.## -6.69 + 6.69 = 0, brilliant!

    Relationship between frequency and length of pendulum

    Homework Statement We calculated times of the periods of varying pendulum lengths. (20cm, 40cm, 60cm, 80cm). Then the frequency was calculated for each length and then a frequency-length graph was made. Since the graph is an exponential relationship we graphed our values on a log-log chart...

    Mass of block given μK and Force?

    Fnet = 240 - (0.4 x 9.8m) = 240 - 3.92m 240 - 3.92m = 0.88m 240 = 0.88m + 3.92m 240 = 4.8m m = 50 kg wohooooooo thanks a lot!:biggrin:
