When a parachutist jumps from an airplane, he eventually reaches a constant speed, called the terminal velocity. This means that [A] the acceleration is equal to g.

The MKS unit of power is the watt (W). If the Sun provides 2 (on average) in In Miami, what is the area of a solar panel operating at 80% efficiency that would be needed to provide the 2500 kWh per month used by the residential customer above?

A person walks 8.0 rn in a straight line east of north and ends up 4.0 or east and a certain distance north.

A bullet is fired with a certain velocity at an angle 0 above the horizontal at a location where g = 10.0 mfsz. The initial x and y components of its velocity are 86.6 m/s and 50.0 m/s respectively. How lon does it take before the bullet hits the ground? [A] 5.0 s @l s [C] 15.0 s [D] 20.0 s [E] none ofthese. On the way up, the y-velocity loses 10 m/s per second, so it takes 5 s up to reach zero velocity, then it takes just as much time to come down! 13. A car traveling with velocity v is decelerated by a constant acceleration of magnitude a. It travels a distance d before coming to rest.

From the edge of a roof top you toss a green ball upwards with initial velocity v0 and a blue ball downwards with the same initial velocity. When they reach the ground below, [A] the green ball will be moving faster than the blue ball. . blue ball will be moving faster than the green ball. . [C] the balls will have the same speed. ere is not enough information to answer this. The green ball goes up to its maximum height and then falls back down again. When it reaches the same point as that from which it was thrown, by the laws of symmetry, it will have exactly the same magnitude of velocity, but directed downward! So both the green and blue balls have exactly the same dawnward velocity at the edge of the roof. Naturally, they will have exactly the same velocity just before the hit the ground. 15.

On a training mission, the crew of a Black Hawk helicopter are cruising east (+i)at an airspeed of 120 knots (I knot = 1 nautical mileth = 1852 mfhr = 0.5144 mfs) and an altitude of 1200 111. Up ahead (further to the east), the pilot spots their target on the ground and a crew member prepares to release a grenade (on = 0).

A crate of mass 50.0 kg sits on the ramp ofa loading dock. (Use g z 10 mfsz) a. If the ramp is inclined at an angle of 30.0°, find the normal force acting on the crate. b. If we assume that the surface of the ramp is smooth (no friction), find the force that a worker would need to apply parallel to the surface of the ramp (x’-axis) in order to push the crate up the ramp at constant velocity. c. If the worker applies a force parallel to the x-axis, find the magnitude of the force needed to accelerate the crate up the ramp at 1.5 mfsz. a. 2F), = N-mgcosB=0 J.
