1. ### Resultant force on a parachutist

I would say B, C, and D. If the upward force of the parachute is greater in magnitude than F, then the new resultant force must point upward (and may be more or less than F). If the upward force of the parachute is equal and opposite F, then they must cancel out, and if the upward force is...
2. ### How Do Mass and Weight Differ?

In the 2nd question, I definitely think it's D, because the force the rock exerts on your toe is equal in magnitude to the normal force the toe exerts on the rock which in turn is equal to the rock's weight, which is related to m by the constant g. In the 1st question, I am not as certain, but I...
3. ### Halliday Resnick Krane Example Problem: Uncertainty on Weighing Machine

In the solution to the example problem, they wrote the following statement. “The least signiﬁcant digit is the units digit, and so your weight is uncertain by about 1 pound. That is, your scale would read 119 lb for any weight between 118.5 and 119.5 lb.” I don’t understand why the scale...

6. ### Another Doubt From Halliday Resnick Krane -- Puck on a string in circular motion

Hello! This is a problem from Halliday Resnick Krane (Chapter 4: Problem #15). “A puck is moving in a circle of radius r0 with a constant speed v0 on a level frictionless table. A string is attached to the puck, which holds it in the circle; the string passes through a frictionless hole and is...
7. ### B A Doubt from Halliday Resnick Krane

Hello! In Chapter 4 of Halliday Resnick Krane on Pg. 73, they write “the descending motion is much steeper than the ascending motion” when discussing how the trajectory of a projectile changes when we consider drag force. Why is this statement true?
8. ### Halliday, Resnick & Krane Chapter 5: Force on Pulley

As the force on a pulley is equal to twice the tension, I just have to find the tension to solve part A. To do so, I first wrote the equations for both m1 and m2. m1 * a = T - m1g m2 * a = T + N - m2g The tension must have the same values for both equations so I added both equations to find...

I continue to see references to time dilation that I don’t understand. Maybe the bluntest one is in a textbook by Resnick. Introduction to Special Relativity, p. 93: “Indeed we find that the phenomena are reciprocal. That is, just as A’s clock seems to B to run slow, so does B’s clock seem to...
13. ### I Is there a contradiction in Halliday and Resnick?

In Chapter 11, section 11-4, subsection friction and rolling, it is stated that the static frictional force is along the same direction as the direction of motion because the point of contact of the wheel with the floor is moving in the opposite direction. Then, in the next subsection, the same...
