incline surface is m1 = 5.0 kg and the mass of the block on the horizontal surface is m; = 15.0 kg. The system of the two masses is pulled with a force of 60.0 N applied at an
angle of 600 with the horizontal. Ignore friction. a. Draw freebody force diagrams for both blocks.

The plane ﬁrst ﬂies to city A, located 175 km away in the direction 30.00 north of east.
Next, it ﬂies for 150 km 30.00 west of north, to city B. Finally, the plane ﬂies 190 km due
west, to city C. Find the direct distance R from the airport to city C. 5. (6 marks).
AnsWer the following two questions. a_ A car starts ﬁom rest and accelerates for 1.0 minute, then the ear maintains constant
velocity for 1.0 minute, then it slows down for one minute and stops. Sketch the position
x versus time t graphs for a calmoving along a straight road (xaxis). _b. The mass of a hypothetical planet is 111000 that of Earth and its radius is 1/4 that of
Earth. If a' person weighs 600 N on earth, what would his weight on this planet? 1.2.4N ' 2.4.8N
