Unformatted text preview: I. You are a member of a team hired by an architectural firm to design a wheelchair accessible entrance to a building. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires the steepness of wheelchair ramps to be less than a 1: 12 ratio of vertical change to horizontal change. a) Decide which of the following ramps meet the ADA recommendation (circle your selection(s)). : i l 4 (Q.

DA 2.0 kg model car rests on an inclined plane that makes an angle of 30° with the horizontal. You push the car with a steadily increasing force in the direction down the hill until the car begins to move. If the car begins to move when you are pushing with a force of 7.1 N, what is the approximate coefficient of static friction between the car and the hill? 7, N / a. 0.2 7/ fl: M 7:” 0.3 K 1 I é c. 0.6 $0 d. 0.8 P\ 1.0 5.

A 2 kg ball and an 8 kg ball are placed on separate springs, each with the same spring constant. The springs are compressed by the same distance and released. Which of the following is true about the speeds of the balls as they leave the springs? The 2 kg ball will go 4 times as fast. The 2 kg ball will go twice as fast. Their speeds are equal. The 8 kg ball will go 4 times as fast. The 8 kg ball will go twice as fast. The earth has a radius of appr0ximately 6400 km If a satellite could orbit the earth at a steady speed just at the earth’s surface, how fast would it have to travel?
