from the ground to the bed of the truck, whereas John slides his cabinet up a rough ramp to the
track. Which statement is correct? 1. Alex‘ and John do the same amount of Work.
2. Alex does more work than John
@John does more work than Alex. 4. None of the statements IS necessarily true because the angle of the ramp is unknown.

static ﬁiction. Which of the following statements is NOT true concerning the object? 1. If the angular speed is constant, the object must have constant tangential speed.
(2 If the angular speed is constant, the object is not accelerated.
3. The object has a tangential acceleration only if the disk has an angular acceleration.
4. If the disk has an angular acceleration, the object has both a centripetal and tangential
acceleration.
5. The object always has a centripetal acceleration except when the angular speed is zero. i. A hydrelic jack has one piston of diameter Z'cm and the other piston of diameter 8 cm. When a

behaviour is called porpoising. Suppose a salon swimming in still water jumps out of water with
speed 6.26 m/s at an angle of 45°, travels (projectile motion) through the air a horizontal distance
L before returning to the water, and then swims a distance L underwater at a speed 3.58 m/s before beginning another porpoising maneuver. a. Determine the distance L and the time the ﬁsh is in the air in a single jump. qu=@zc ‘1/5) Cox 4310'); q_ ((3 "16.
