What conclusion can you draw about the force required to move the cart and the distance in a cart that moves along a ramp to attain your specific height?

The maximum force that the handles on a grocery bag can withstand and not rip is 250 N. a. If 20 kg of groceries are lifted from the floor to the table with an acceleration of 5 m/s2, will the...

The space shuttle has a mass of 2.0 x 106 kg. At lift-off, the engines generate an upward force of 3.0 x 107 N. a. What is the acceleration of the shuttle? b. If the shuttle is in outer space...

A tow-truck is trying to pull a 1.4 x 103 kg car out of some mud. The coefficient of static friction is 0.76. What force will the tow truck have to apply to the car before it will start to move?...

A car is travelling at 120 km/hr when it slams on the brakes. a. How long is the skid mark if the coefficient of friction is 0.62? (hint: convert km/hr to m/s) b. Explain why a more massive...
