A car changes velocity from an initial value of 14.0 m/s to the right to a final value of 5.00 m/s to the
left.
The change in velocity takes 4.00 s to complete.
1)
What is the acceleration of the car during this time?
A boy standing at the edge of a cliff throws a rock straight up into the air.
The rock has an initial speed
of 10.0 m/s.
Some time later, the rock is a vertical distance of 15.0 m below its starting point.
2)
What is the velocity of the rock at that instant?
3)
What was the maximum altitude of the rock, relative to its starting point?
A track star has just completed her race, and is traveling at 7.50 m/s to the right.
She uniformly
accelerates to a stop as she runs an additional 25.0 m to the right.
4)
How long did it take her to stop?
An airplane begins to accelerate at 5.00 m/s
2
to the north.
After one minute of acceleration, the
airplane has moved 16.0 km northward in a straight line.
5)
What was the velocity of the airplane when it began to accelerate?
The driver of a car sees a dog run into the street ahead of him, and he hits the brakes.
The car skids to
a stop over a distance of 1.10 x 10
2
m as the brakes accelerate the car at 9.50 m/s
2
.
6)
How long does it take the car to skid to a stop?
The graph at right depicts the northward velocity of a
skateboard as a function of time.
7)
What is the acceleration of the skateboard?
8)
What is the displacement of the skateboard during the time
interval shown on the graph?
You are looking out of 2.50 m tall window when you see a rock fall downward.
You saw that it took the
rock 0.150 s to move from the top of the window to the bottom.
You find out later that it was dropped
from the roof.
9)
From how far above the top of the window was the rock released?
