A 7.93 kg box is pulled along a horizontal surface by a force F_p of 84.0 N applied at a 47.0° angle. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.35, what is the acceleration of the box?

If the acceleration due to gravity on the Moon is 1/6 that what is on the Earth, what would a 100 kg man weight on the Moon? If a person tried to simulate this gravity in an elevator, how fast would it have to accelerate and in which direction?

If a 1500 kg car stopped from an in 5.6 seconds with an applied force of 5000 N, how fast was it initially traveling?

A not so brilliant physics student wants to jump from a 3rd-floor apartment window to the swimming pool below. The problem is the base of the apartment is 8.00 meters from the pool’s edge. If the window is 20.0 meters high, how fast does the student have to be running horizontally to make it to the pool’s edge?

A stone is dropped from the roof of a high building. A second stone is dropped 1.25 s later. How long does it take for the stones to be 25.0 meters apart?

Problems: A ship has a top speed of 3 m/s in calm water. The current of the ocean tends to push the boat at 2 m/s on a bearing of due South. What will be the net velocity of the ship if the captain points his ship on a bearing of 55° North of West … Continue reading Grantham PHY220 Week 2 Assignment

A stone is dropped from the roof of a high building. A second stone is dropped 1.25 s later. How long does it take for the stones to be 25.0 meters apart?

Explain a possible situation where you start with a positive velocity that decreases to a negative increasing velocity while there is a constant negative acceleration.

A sports car moving at constant speed travels 150 m in 4.00 s. If it then brakes and comes to a stop while decelerating at a rate of 6.0 m/s2 , how long does it take to stop?
