A rifle bullet is fired vertically upwards with a muzzle velocity of 700 m/s. Assuming no air resistance, what height will it reach? How long will it take to reach the ground again?
A plane can fly 325 mph in still air. If it can fly 190 miles downwind in the same amount of time it can fly 135 miles upwind, find the velocity of the wind.
A particle is moving with velocity v(t) = t^2 – 9t + 18 with distance, s measured in meters, left or right of zero, and t measured in seconds, with t between 0 and 8 seconds inclusive. The position...
