Part C At 5.79 , how far is the squirrel from its initial position? Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units. ANSWER: Correct Part D At 5.79 , what is the magnitude of the squirrel's velocity? Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units. ANSWER: Correct Part E At 5.79 , what is the direction (in degrees counterclockwise from +x-axis) of the squirrel's velocity? Express your answer to three significant figures and include the appropriate units. ANSWER: Correct Exercise 3.15 Inside a starship at rest on the earth, a ball rolls off the top of a horizontal table and lands a distance from the foot of the table. This starship now lands on the unexplored Planet X. The commander, Captain Curious, rolls the same ball off the same table with the same initial speed as on earth and finds that it lands a distance 2.61 from the foot of the table. = 4.65 = 2.03 = 70.0
Part A What is the acceleration due to gravity on Planet X? ANSWER: Correct Enhanced EOC: Exercise 3.30 At its Ames Research Center, NASA uses its large “20-G” centrifuge to test the effects of very large accelerations ( hypergravity ) on test pilots and astronauts. In this device, an arm 8.84 long rotates about one end in a horizontal plane, and the astronaut is strapped in at the other end. Suppose that he is aligned along the arm with his head at the outermost end. The maximum sustained acceleration to which humans are subjected in this machine is typically 12.5 .

### What students are saying

• 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.
