Use a(t) =−32 feet per second squared as the acceleration due to gravity. a ball is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 56 feet per second. for how many seconds will the ball be going upward?
Since the ball is moving by uniformly accelerated motion, its vertical velocity at time t is given by
where we took upward as positive direction, and where is the initial velocity, a the acceleration and t the time.
The instant at which is the instant when the ball reverses its velocity (from upward to downward). This means that the difference between the time t at which v(t)=0 and the instant t=0 is the total time during which the ball was going upward:
A water-skier is being pulled by a tow rope attached to a boat. As the driver pushes the throttle forward, the skier accelerates. A 76.2-kg water-skier has an initial speed of 5.0 m/s. Later, the speed increases to 10.4 m/s. Determine the work done by the net external force acting on the skier.
Work done will be equal to 3186.396 J
We have mass m = 76.2 kg
Initial velocity u = 5 m/sec
Final velocity v = 10.4 m/sec
We have to find the work done
From work energy theorem work done is equal to change in kinetic energy
w = 3168.396 J
So work done will be equal to 3186.396 J
What best describes the bromide ion that forms
Its a negative ion that hss one less valence electron than a netural bromine atom
A^^\-> points in the -x direction with a magnitude of 21. What is the y component of A^^\->
Vector A points in the -x direction with a magnitude of 21.
Let the x component is making an angle of 60 degrees with negative x axis. The x component of a vector is given by :
A = -42 units
The y component of a vector is given by :
So, the y component of vector A is (-36.37) degrees. Hence, this is the required solution.
Air is a good conductor of heat. Please select the best answer from the choices provided T F
If air were a good conductor of heat" then soup will not stay hot for longer because this time convection+conduction will both help to transfer heat away from soup. Because conduction is the transfer of heat through a substances as a result of neighbouring vibrating particles, The particles in air are far apart.
the answer is false. Hope this helps
Certain insects can achieve seemingly impossible accelerations while jumping. the click beetle accelerates at an astonishing 400g over a distance of 0.52 cm as it rapidly bends its thorax, making the "click" that gives it its name. part a assuming the beetle jumps straight up, at what speed does it leave the ground? part b how much time is required for the beetle to reach this speed? part c ignoring air resistance, how high would it go?
(a) The launching velocity of the beetle is 6.4 m/s
(b) The time taken to achieve the speed for launch is 1.63 ms
(c) The beetle reaches a height of 2.1 m.
(a) The beetle starts from rest and accelerates with an upward acceleration of 400 g and reaches its launching speed in a distance 0.53 cm. Here g is the acceleration due to gravity.
Use the equation of motion,
Here, the initial velocity of the beetle is u, its final velocity is v, the acceleration of the beetle is a, and the beetle accelerates over a distance s.
Substitute 0 m/s for u, 400 g for a, 9.8 m/s² for g and 0.52×10⁻²m for s.
The launching speed of the beetle is 6.4 m/s.
(b) To determine the time t taken by the beetle for launching itself upwards is determined by using the equation of motion,
Substitute 0 m/s for u, 400 g for a, 9.8 m/s² for g and 6.385 m/s for v.
The time taken by the beetle to launch itself upwards is 1.62 ms.
(c) After the beetle launches itself upwards, it is acted upon by the earth's gravitational force, which pulls it downwards towards the earth with an acceleration equal to the acceleration due to gravity g. Its velocity reduces and when it reaches the maximum height in its path upwards, its final velocity becomes equal to zero.
Use the equation of motion,
Substitute 6.385 m/s for u, -9.8 m/s² for g and 0 m/s for v.
The beetle can jump to a height of 2.1 m
