1. How large a force is required to accelerate a 1600 kg car from rest to a speed of  25 m/s in a distance of 200 m?       Answer:  2500 N 2. A horizontal force of 40 N pushes an object of mass 5.0 kg up an inclined plane  through a distance of 1.6 m measured along the plane.  The plane is inclined at an  angle of 30˚ to the horizontal.  Neglect friction and use g = 10 m/s 2 .        Answer:  15J 3. A force of 15 N applied to a spring stretches it by 4 cm.  What is the potential  energy of the spring in the stretched position?     Answer:  0.3 J 4. A 20-kg object is resting at the top of a table 1.6 m above ground level.  What is  the change in the gravitational potential energy of this object?  Use g = 10 m/s 2 Answer:  1420 J 5. A 500-kg cannon fires a 4.0-kg projectile with a velocity of 500 m/s relative to the  ground.  What is the recoil speed of the cannon?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
