Problem 1 (20 points) You see your 10 kg bag sitting at rest on the floor at the airport baggage claim, and you rush over to grab it. You jerk the bag off the ground by pulling on it with a constant force of 130 N, at an angle of 70 ° above horizontal, for 0.1 seconds. The force of your pull is in the x-y plane (where the x-axis is parallel with the ground, and the y-axis points straight up in the air). We want to know the velocity of the bag at the end of this 0.1 second period of tugging, and also the total distance through which the bag moved. 1.1. Define the system you’re using in this problem. 1.2. List the external objects that interact significantly with the system. Make a carefully labeled diagram showing their interaction with the system.

    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.
