    Frictional force on a car on an inclined plane

    A 2319kg car is moving down a road with a slope grade of 11% and slowing down at a rate of 3.8m/s^2.Find the direction and magnitude of the frictional force ( define positive in the forward direction ie down the slope) So the equation I have is f= ma+ mgsinθ. For my angle I get...

    Find frictional force given acceleration, grade, and mass

    a 1000 kg car is moving down a road with slope (grade) of 15% while slowing down at a rate of 3.7m/s^2 .What is the direction and magnitude of the frictional force?(define positive in the forward direction) Using f=ma I have the mass 1000 kg, the acceleration 3.7m/s^2, and slope 15%...

    Fictional force problem given a slope(grade)?

    fictional force problem....given a slope(grade)??? A 1000kg car is moving down a road with a slope(grade) of 15% at a constant speed of 15m/s. What is the direction and magnitude of the frictional force? So... V= 15m/s a= 0 (constant) The slope really throws me off..I don't know...

    Confused kinematics equations & ball motion in the air

    you throw a ball straight up in the air with a speed of 7.25m/s. The moment the ball leaves your hand you start running away at a speed of 2.59m/s. How far are you from the ball the moment it hits the ground. So I've gotten better at these kinematics equations but this one has too many...

    Super congfused about finding distance with constant acceleration

    *confused A car speeding up from rest to constant accel. travels 100 meters in 6.04s. How far did it travel in the first 2.37 seconds? So I figure if I divide distance by time 100/6.04 it will give me the velocity 16.5m/s. And since distance = vt I would do d=15.6*2.37 which equals 37.03m but...

    Question about doubling speed of object

    I know that something with double the speed will travel 4 times as far. So does that mean you take the given distance and multiply it by 4? or take the distance and multiply it by 2 and square it? for example if its 3 meters would it be 3*4 or (2x3)^2

    Need help with motion questionplease!

    Need help with "motion" question..please! Homework Statement you are sitting in a car that is stopped. The moment a biker passes you, you start accelerating at 3 m/s2, while the bicycle continues to move along at a constant speed of 9 m/s. After what distance will you catch up with the...
