The velocity of an object is the rate of change of its position with respect to a frame of reference, and is a function of time. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of an object's speed and direction of motion (e.g. 60 km/h to the north). Velocity is a fundamental concept in kinematics, the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of bodies.
Velocity is a physical vector quantity; both magnitude and direction are needed to define it. The scalar absolute value (magnitude) of velocity is called speed, being a coherent derived unit whose quantity is measured in the SI (metric system) as metres per second (m/s or m⋅s−1). For example, "5 metres per second" is a scalar, whereas "5 metres per second east" is a vector. If there is a change in speed, direction or both, then the object has a changing velocity and is said to be undergoing an acceleration.
A golf is launched at a speed v,f and launch angle, β,f. The slope of the green is equal to φ. At some point the ball is located on the rim of a hole. The side view (a) and overhead view (b) looks as in the attached image.

Parallel:
M1V1+M2v2=M1V1’+M2V2’
(0.5)(3)+0=(0.5)(cos60)(3)+V2’Cos(x)(0.5)
V2’cos(x)=

Which is tan(x)=2/1
And then plug then back in to solve, but I don’t think we do it like this because...
Question:
Galileo released a metal ball from rest so that it could roll down a smooth inclined
plane. The time t taken to roll a distance s was measured. He repeated the
experiment, each time recording the time taken to travel a different fraction of the
distance s.
Write an expression for the...
b) My question is here!
0.9v_t = v0 + a*t = a*t
t = 0.9v_t/a
delta_h = v0*t + 0.5*a*t^2 = 0.5*a*t^2 = 0.5*((0.9*v_t)^2)/a =
where a = (-m*g + b*v)/m
delta_h = (0.5*((0.9*v_t)^2)*m)/(-m*g + b*v)
plugging in everything delta_h = 1.65 m which is not what the answer is. Please help
A station is orbiting a planet at a distance R1, a moon is orbiting the planet at distance R2 with the period T. The planet itself has a radius rp and a mass mp. We know that when an object adds its velocity at a point in the orbit, the height of the opposite orbit will increase. Determine the...
the v before hitting the ground immediately=4.85m/s
the v after hitting the ground immediately= 3.96m/s
I considered the down positive, then
v= u+at
3.96= 4.85+ (a*0.16)
so a= -5.56m/s*s
The answer is 55m/s*s
The parts that I don't get are why it must be -3.96 and why that velocity becomes...

I have tried this problem over 4 times and keep getting the exact same answer, which is incorrect. Could someone please help by pointing out what I did wrong, or letting me know if I am actually on the completely wrong path?
Thanks!
Have a wonderful day :)
i have tried V=Vi - (g*t) with an answer equals to 4
as well as
d=Vi(t) + 1/2 a t^2 with an answer equals to 19
my final asnwer was 1.43 and it was still wrong
i used formula a=v/t
v=14
t=10
i divided 14/10 to get 1.4
Was wondering if acceleration seems to be a more fundamental property/quantity in the universe as compared to velocity or distance because acceleration can be defined in more absolute terms in a frame depending on the forces acting inside that reference frame.
Considering a very simple example...
Hello everyone, I would really appreciate some help on the following problem on plane waves and propagation. Not too sure if my attempt at writing the propagation wave expressions are correct, and how to handle the arbitrary function f(u). For the velocity, the wavelength is not specified, so is...
Hello,
It might sound silly, but when I try to calculate the kinetic energy of a rotating rod to form the Langrangian (and in general), why it has both translational and rotational kinetic energy?
Is it because when I consider the moment of Inertia about the centre I need to include the...
a)What is the total energy in the system?
Only energy acting on the system assuming the track is level and there is no potential energy of the carts, is the potential energy of the spring.
Comes out to 7.8125 using the potential energy of a spring equation.
b) What are their velocities if the...
The point of confusion is deciding the direction each persons sets out in i.e. velocity direction of each person. Knowing this will probably help in getting the solution.
At t=0, I can say that velocity of each person is as shown in diagram below.
Attached is the problem and my work through the problem. I got the problem correct, but my teacher said this could be done quicker on a calculator. Any idea how it could be done quicker.
The answer here is A
What i did is getting the area as follows,
2×4×1/2 +3×-6×1/2 +4×-6 = -29
and then use this
Δω=ωf-ωi
-29=ωf-5
ωf=24
but there is no such choice.
The problem states:
Two parallel plates separated by distance h, the plate at the top moves with velocity V, while the one at the bottom remains stationary.
My initial approach was:
I considered, ##du/dy = V/h## and for the shear stress ##\tau = \mu \frac{\partial u}{\partial y}##
For...
Hi everyone! I don't know how to solve the next problem, and if anyone could explain to me step by step how it is solved I would thank you a lot. I know it's not hard, but I'm not seeing how to do it. Thank you in advance!
So what I did first was calculate the initial and final potential energies with Epi=-9.433*10^11 m and Epf = -1.503*10^12 m.
Then I found change in potential energy, -5.597*10^11 m.
Using this I determined the change in kinetic energy, 5.597*10^11. I then added this change to the initial...
It was a long time ago I did these kind of problems so I’m a bit rusty. The only thing I can think of is divide it up to two parts one x and one y.
In y the acceleration is sin(a)*9.82? Then put that in the equation and solve for t.
In x the there is no acceleration so the formula is x=V0*t, I...

When calculating the dV available from a rocket booster, the below calculation is used:
(ISP . g) . ln(Mass when full/Mass when empty)
Is 'g' always equal to 9.81 in this equation, or do you use the actual gravitational acceleration that the booster will experience, at it's given altitude, to...
A Problem is posed for a flight from Melbourne to Cairns.

I was told to solve the second equation above for x to get l2 and l2, but that only gets me those in terms of other unknowns. I'm assuming I just need to solve t for my knowns, but I keep getting caught up by my unknowns. i.e., solving for x gives x = (l2*L*v2)/(l1*v1+l2*v2). Please note "l" is...
So thing that confusses me, is what is the difference regarding the calculation of speed and velocity? In think I should use the formula I wrote above to find the average velocity, but I don't understand what the formula for average speed will be then. By the way, when using the formula above...
Let´s suppose we are observing the sun and measuring some spectral lines.
Does the velocity correction´s formula for the Earth include the rotational velocity components of the Sun as well?
or rather

In the picture, there is a problem where the t is in units of square root(l/g), and V in square root(gl)
I am wondering
1. What it means when time is in units other than time? Does it mean that when solving I have to take time/squareroot(l/g)
2. How did they get square root(l/g).
Thank you...
We are given that ##v' = \frac{1}{10}v^2 - g##.
I tried using implicit differentiation so that ##v'' = \frac{1}{5}vv' = \frac{1}{5}v(\frac{1}{10}v^2-g)## and set this equal to 0. Hence we have 3 critical points, at ##v= 0##, and ##v = \pm \sqrt{10g}##.
Calculating ##v''(0)=-120##, we know the...
For a cylinder rolling down an inclined plane, does the tangential velocity of a point a distance R from the axis of rotation equal the velocity of the center of mass?
I thought it would be a good idea to pretend that the walls are stationary and that each time the particle hits a wall, it gets a velocity addition of the velocity of the wall it’s hitting. Using this I ended up at the formula
V = initial velocity of particle + n(velocity of left wall) +...

I tried getting the velocity of a which by using constraint came out to be 3 and by using the eqn for vcom i got the ans as 3.5 i just want to confirm is this the correct answer
The statement "at the initial moment of time v ⊥ u and the points are separated by a distance l " gives us a picture like the one which I have added in attachment.
As the time passes velocity vector v would gradually change from fully vertical to fully horizontal in order to meet point B. Now...
Pretending the siren is at rest in air:
Wavelength = velocity/frequence --> (343 m/s) / 10,000 Hz = .0343m.
I don't believe this is the correct way to go about solving the problem, since the vehicle is moving at the start and the siren is not at rest.
I am new to Simulink and I wanted to start practicing using a spring mass damper system. My first tutorial was this:
Later, I wanted to model a spring system where a mass moving at a known velocity hits the spring. The governing equation and a similar modeling method given in the previous...
