All the work done by this force converts to the kinetic energy of the car at the bottom of the hill, so 1 FL = mv 2 2 v= 2) 4000 lb m 32.174 ( ft/s 2 ) 100 ft sin 25o 2 FL = m 4000 lb m ) sin 25o 80.217 ft/s . = 2 32.174 ( ft/s 2 ) 100 ft (b) The kinetic energy at the bottom of the hill comes from the potential energy of gravity due to the falling. 1 mgH = mv 2 2 v = 2 gH = 2~ 32.174 ( ft/s 2 ) 100 ft 80.217 ft/s . The two methods are equivalent. 22.4 Assume the comet debris and the earth stay together, thus all the kinetic energy is transferred to thermal energy and released. 1 Q = mv 2 2 2 1 1 pD3r comet vcomet = ) ) ) 2 )6 3 2 3 1 1 p mile 1609 m 7 g/cm3 1000 kg/m mile/s 1609 m = 3 20 2 6 mile g/cm3 mile 2.13 1023 J 2.13 1023 ^J 1 megaton 4.184 1015 J 5.10 107 megaton . 22.13 The work done in the lifting is transferred into potential energy of the load.
