HELP please. Physics question.

    A primitive diving bell consists of a cylindrical tank with one end open and one end closed. The tank is lowered into a freshwater lake, open end downward. Water rises into the...

Find the tension?

Luke Autbeloe twirls a 750 gram mass on the end of a 0.82 meter string. Find the tension at the top and bottom of the orbit. Assume the mass's velocity at both top and bottom is 3.7 m/s.

What's the slowest speed?

A frictionless rollercoaster does a vertical loop with a radius of 6.0 m. What's the slowest speed that the rollercoaster must have at the top of the loop and avoid falling?

What's the shortest length?

A certain cord will break if its tension exceeds 360 N. Suppose the cord is attached to a 0.40 kg ball. If the ball is to be swung with a speed of 25 m/s, what's the shortest length of cord that can...

How fast can the ball?

A certain cord will break if its tension exceeds 250 N. Suppose the cord is attached to a 0.50 kg ball. If the ball is swung in a horizontal circle at the end of a 0.80 m cord, how fast can the ball...

What must be the friction?

Harry Hotrod rounds a corner in his sports car at 50 km/h. The friction force holds him on the road. If he has twice the speed, what must be the friction force to prevent him from skidding off the...

What is its resulting acceleration?

Two 5 kg masses are attached to opposite ends of a long massless cord which passes tautly over a massless frictionless pulley. The upper mass is initially held at rest on a table 50 cm from the pulley...

What's the downward acceleration?

Two masses are connected by a light cord which is looped over a light frictionless pulley. If one mass is 3.0 kg and the second mass is 5.0 kg, what's the downward acceleration of the heavier mass...
