1. Spider-man leaps off of a building 33 m high with a speed of 5.5 m/s, 26° below the horizontal, toward an adjacent building 19 m away. Does he land on the next building or on the ground? How far up the building or away from the adjacent building will he land? 2. In a centrifuge of radius 9.3 m, astronauts are spun around at high speeds. The centrifuge is running at 59 rpm at full speed and then comes to a rest in 19 seconds. (a) What is the angular acceleration of the centrifuge as it comes to a stop? (b) How many rotations does it make while it is stopping? (c) What is the highest total acceleration felt by a passenger?

Unformatted text preview: Rupinder throws two identical rocks at 4.5 m/s, one upwards and one downward. How long apart are the two splashes? (c) What is the difference in speed of the two rocks when they each hit the water? 4. A mass of m A = 55.0 kg and a mass of m B = 49.0 kg are attached by a light cord which passes over a frictionless, negligible mass pulley, as shown in the figure below. Mass B is being pulled to the left by a 65 kg person resulting in the entire system moving to the left/up the incline with an acceleration of 1.0 m/s 2 . Mass A lies on an inclined ramp of 35.0 degrees. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the surface is 0.11. (a) Draw the free-body diagrams (Do not draw on the figure or in the box). (b) With what force is the person pulling?...
