Chapter 1 Problem 13 Ques. How much force must a locomotive exert on a 12,000-kg boxcar to make it accelerate forward at 0.4 m/s2?
The boxcar will move in response to the net force applied to it, taking
Robb Page 10-Feb-2010 Physics 140 Professor Stoddard Chapter 1 Problem 4 Ques. How far would a rock fall in 3 seconds if you dropped it on Mars? (See Problem 3).
We will overlook any effect of air resistance since it is deemed to be negligible in this exa
Robb Page 03-Feb-2010 Physics 140 Professor Stoddard Chapter 1 Problem 3 Ques. On Mars, the acceleration of gravity is 3.71 m/s2. What would a rocks velocity be 3 seconds after you dropped it on Mars?
For this example we will ignore any effects that may b

385L - Laboratory 3 - Introduction to Power Supplies
Abstract This lab introduces proper operation of diodes for rectification of an AC signal and filtering of those signals. It also provides understanding of the secondary voltage output of a transf
385L - Laboratory 2 - Introduction to AC Measurements
Abstract This lab introduces proper operation of a digital multimeter for AC voltage and current measurements, and of an oscilloscope for AC measurements. It also involves the demonstration of ph
The purpose of this lab was simply to introduce us to alpha radiation and penetration.
An alpha particle is made up of two protons and two neutrons. It is identical to the
nucleus of Helium. For many year
