1/ You are pulling a suitcase through the airport at a constant speed. The handle of the suitcase makes an angle of 60° with respect to the horizontal direction. If you pull with a force of 5.0 N parallel to the handle, what is the contact force due to the floor acting on the suitcase? 2/ While an elevator of mass 2530 kg moves upward, the force exerted by the cable is 33.6 kN. (a) What is the acceleration of the elevator? (b) If at some point in the motion the velocity of the elevator is 1.20 m/s upward, what is the elevator’s velocity 4.00 s later? 3/ Alex is on stage playing his bass guitar. Estimate the magnitude of the gravitational attraction between Alex and Pat, a fan who is standing 8 m from Alex. Alex has a mass of 55 kg and Pat has a mass of 40 kg. 4/ Find and compare the weight of a 65 - kg man on Earth with the weight of the same man on (a) Mars, where g = 3.7 N/kg; (b) Venus, where g = 8.9 N/kg; and (c) Earth’s Moon, where g = 1.6 N/kg.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
