Falling Flowerpot(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A 3 kg flowerpot drops from a tall building. The initial speed of the pot is zero, and you may neglect air resistance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a) What is the magnitude of the force acting on the pot while it is in the air 1.5 s after it begins to fall?

|F| = N *

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

b) After the pot has fallen 26 m, what is its speed?

|v| = m/s *

sqrt(2*9.81*26) OK

HELP: Apply the appropriate formula from one-dimensional kinematics with constant acceleration.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

c) After the pot has fallen 26 m, it enters a viscous liquid, which brings it to rest over a distance of 1.5 m. Assuming constant deceleration over this distance, what is the magnitude of this deceleration?

|a| = m/s2 *

9.81*26/1.5 OK

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

d) What is the force exerted on the liquid by the pot?

Ft = N

Need help with part d. Some guidance requested please!!!
