I was doing my homework for my physics class, but now I am stuck at two questions and don't know what to do. :( And I don't know where to start. If someone can get me started and little tips on how-to-solve this question, that'd be awesome! :D(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If someone can help me solve this problem, I'd be really greatful! :) And I am glad that I found such a wonderful forum.

Thank you. :)
