## Vector Displacement| Vector Addition and Subtraction: Graphical Method| Two-Dimensional Kinematics| College Physics Problem 3.7

(a) Repeat the problem two problems prior, but for the second leg you walk 20.0 m in a direction 40.0º north of east (which is equivalent to subtracting B from A —that is, to finding R′ =A−B ). (b) Repeat the problem two problems prior, but now you first walk 20.0 m in a direction 40.0º south of west and then 12.0 m in a direction 20.0º east of south (which is equivalent to subtracting A from B —that is, to finding R′′ = B - A = - R′ ). Show that this is the case.

## Vector Displacement| Vector Addition and Subtraction: Graphical Method| Two-Dimensional Kinematics| College Physics Problem 3.6

Repeat the problem above, but reverse the order of the two legs of the walk; show that you get the same final result. That is, you first walk leg B , which is 20.0 m in a direction exactly 40º south of west, and then leg A , which is 12.0 m in a direction exactly 20º west of north. (This problem shows that A+B=B+A.)

## Vector Displacement| Vector Addition and Subtraction: Graphical Method| Two-Dimensional Kinematics| College Physics Problem 3.5

Suppose you first walk 12.0 m in a direction 20º west of north and then 20.0 m in a direction 40.0º south of west. How far are you from your starting point, and what is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (If you represent the two legs of the walk as vector displacements A and B , as in Figure 3.56, then this problem finds their sum R=A+B.)

## Vector Displacement| Vector Addition and Subtraction: Graphical Method| Two-Dimensional Kinematics| College Physics Problem 3.4

Suppose you walk 18.0 m straight west and then 25.0 m straight north. How far are you from your starting point, and what is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (If you represent the two legs of the walk as vector displacements A and B, as in Figure 3.55, then this problem asks you to find their sum R = A + B .)

## Grantham PHY220 Week 2 Assignment Problem 8

If a car is traveling at 50 m/s and then stops over 300 meters (while sliding), what is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the tires of the car and the road?

## Falling Objects| College Physics| Openstax| Problem 2.49|

You throw a ball straight up with an initial velocity of 15.0 m/s. It passes a tree branch on the way up at a height of 7.00 m. How much additional time will pass before the ball passes the tree branch on the way back down?

## Rotation Angle and Angular Velocity| Uniform Circular Motion and Gravitation| College Physics| Openstax| Problem 6.1

Semi-trailer trucks have an odometer on one hub of a trailer wheel. The hub is weighted so that it does not rotate, but it contains gears to count the number of wheel revolutions—it then calculates the distance traveled. If the wheel has a 1.15 m diameter and goes through 200,000 rotations, how many kilometers should the odometer read?
