At a building site, an iron girder of mass 400 kg is suspended from a crane by a steel cable. Assume that the cable has a circular cross-section of diameter 24 mm. a.What is the tensile force...
Pendulums Written by tutor John Z. If you have ever been on a swing, you have acted like a pendulum. A pendulum can be loosely defined as something hanging that sways from one extreme to the other (oscillates). You have probably heard of grandfather clocks and oscillatory rides from amusement parks as other examples of pendulums. A metronome is right side up but can be described as a... read more
A 23kg suitcase is being pulled with constant speed by a handle that is at an angle fo 25 degrees above the horizontial. If the normal force exerted on the suitcase is 200N, what is the F applied...
Driving home from school, you spot a ball rolling out into the street. You brake for 1.30s, slowing your 1000kg car from 17.0m/s to 10.0m/s. What was the average force exeerted on your car during...
You plan to fly a model airplane of mass 0.550 kg that is attached to a horizontal string. The plane will travel in a horizontal circle of radius 5.10 m. (Assume the weight of the plane is balanced...
