(a) Take the slope of the curve in Figure 2.64 to find the jogger’s velocity at t = 2.5 s.
(b) Repeat at 7.5 s. These values must be consistent with the graph in Figure 2.65.

Skateboarder on a ramp| Physics

A skateboarder starts up a 1.0-m-high, 30° ramp at a speed of 6.9 m/s. The skateboard wheels roll without friction. At the top, she leaves the ramp and sails through the air.

A) How far from the end of the ramp does the skateboarder touch down?

Angular Acceleration| Circular Motion| Physics

Your car tire is rotating at 4.0 rev/s when suddenly you press down hard on the accelerator. After traveling 300 m, the tire’s rotation has increased to 6.5 rev/s . The radius of the tire is 32 cm.

A) What was the tire’s angular acceleration? Give your answer in rad/s²?
