A conical pendulum consists of a string (of length L) with one end fixed to the ceiling and
the other attached to a mass, m. The mass moves in a horizontal circle at constant speed.
The string sweeps out a cone as the mass rotate

A glider of mass m1 floats frictionlessly on an air track. A string connects m1 to a falling
mass m2 via a pulley. Derive the formula for the acceleration of the glider. Your answer
will of course include free body diagrams for t

Walking across a bridge, I find myself 80 m above the water. If I throw a stone straight down as hard as I
can, I find it hits the water 2 seconds later. What is the speed of my throw? (g =9.8 m/s2)

1. Particles 1 and 2 collide in space where no external forces are present. Particle 1, with
mass m1 = 5 kg, moves directly up the x axis and collides with particle 2 (which has mass
m2 = 10 kg). The below lists a pre-co

In the movie Abraxas vs. Terminator, Abraxas (mA=100 kg) is still chasing the Terminator (m T =80 kg).
Currently the Terminator is trying to escape by paddling a canoe (mC=20 kg) at 4 m/s away from the dock.
Abraxas jumps onto th

Recall Atwoods machine two different masses connected by a string that runs over a
frictionless, massless pulley. As Im sure you remember the heavier mass "wins" and is
pulled down by gravity, which means that the lighter mass is

A mass (m=0.25 kg) is attached to a spring hanging from the ceiling (spring constant k=200 N/m), pulled
down 5 cm, and then released. What is the velocity of the mass when it rises to 1 cm above the initial
