If the accelerating plates are 1.05 apart, and have a potential difference of 2.70 104 , find the change in electric potential energy for an electron that moves from one accelerating plate to the other.
A 48-kg block is suspended from a uniform chain that is hanging from the ceiling. The mass of the chain itself is 23 kg, and the length of the chain is 1.5 m.
A speeding motorist traveling 140 km/h passes a stationary police officer. The officer immediately begins pursuit at a constant acceleration of 12.0 km/h/s (note the mixed units). (a) How much time will it take for the police officer to reach the speeder, assuming that the speeder maintains a...
"Three equal point charges, each with charge 1.5 , are placed at the vertices of an equilateral triangle whose sides are of length 0.600 . What is the electric potential energy of the system? (Take as zero the potential energy of the three charges when they are infinitely far...
A stone is thrown upward at an angle. What happens to the horizontal component of its velocity as it rises? As it falls?
If the moon were placed at twice its current distance from the Earth, how large would it have to be so that total solar eclipses could still occur?
Two rocks are thrown off the edge of a cliff that is 15.0 m above the ground. The first rock is thrown upward, at a velocity of +12.0 m/s. The second is thrown downward, at a velocity of -12.0 m/s. Ignore air resistance. Determine (a) how long it takes the first rock to hit the ground and (b) at...

Tips for asking Questions
- Provide any and all relevant background materials. Attach files if necessary to ensure your tutor has all necessary information to answer your question as completely as possible
- Set a compelling price: While our Tutors are eager to answer your questions, giving them a compelling price incentive speeds up the process by avoiding any unnecessary price negotiations
1. Can you show me step by step how to solve this problem?:
- The Earth’s rate of rotation is constantly decreasing, causing the day to increase in duration. In the year 2000 the Earth takes about 0.548 s longer to complete 365 revolutions than it did in the year 1900.
- (a) What is the average angular acceleration of the Earth?
- (b) If this average acceleration remains constant, in what year will the Earths rotation come to rest?
2. I do not understand this Ideal Gas Law and Kinetic Theory question. Can you help me set it up?
- A spherical balloon is made from a material whose mass is 3.00-kg. The thickness of the material is negligible compared to the 1.5-m radius of the balloon. The balloon is filled with helium (He) at a temperature of 305-degrees K and just floats in the air, neither rising nor falling. The density of the surrounding air is 1.19-kg/m^3. Find the absolute pressure of the helium gas
