    Young's modulus of spider thread

    Homework Statement Q 1. A spider with a mass of 0.26 g hangs vertically by one of its threads. The thread has a Young’s modulus of 4.7 x 10^9 N/m2 and a radius of 9.8 x 10^- ^6 m. a) What is the fractional increase in the thread’s length caused by the spider? b) Suppose a 76 kg person...

    Rotational motion

    On his last throw of the Atlanta Olympics, Lance Deal launched the hammer 81.12m, good enough for a silver medal. The hammer is thrown by rotating the body in a circle, building up rotational speed until releasing it and letting the rotational velocity change to translational velocity. The...

    Motion equations problem

    I have a problem from a practice physics exam: The specifications for design of a playgroud slide say that a child should gain a speed of no more than 15m/s by sliding down the eqipment. How tall can the slide be? these are the equations that we'll be given in our exam: v_{x} = v_{0x} +...
