Science question: If the car is started on a zero friction surface and zero air resistance but force of gravity acting upon it, Will it continue to travel at a constant speed even when engine is switched...

I would like help with the question I just asked

Because of friction pendulum clocks need a small driving force, if accidentally it was too large of a driving force and caused a bit too large of an angle of oscillation to be formed what would happen...

There are two situations, both involving a ball rolling down a ramp with no friction between the ball and the ramp. In situation A there is no friction between the ramp and the floor. In situation...

The mass of the heavier block is 4 kg and the mass of the lighter blocks is 2 kg and the magnitude of the force of the connecting string on the smaller block is 21 N. Assume: g = 9.8 m/s2 and µ =...

A 100N Box (initially at rest) is pushed 10.0m, up a rough ramp by a horizontal applied force of 150N. The ramp is inclined at an angle of 30 degreees and the coefficient of kinetic friction between...

What coefficient of friction is needed to stop a hockey puck sliding at 12.5 m/s initially over a distance of 60.5 meters?

A block of mass m1 is attached to a cord of length L1, which is fixed at one end. The block moves in a horizontal circle on a frictionless tabletop. A second block of mass m2 is attached to the first...

The coefficient of static friction between a rubber tire and the road surface is 0.85. What is the maximum acceleration of a 1042-kg four-wheel-drive truck if the road makes an angle of 12.7° with...

An automobile is going up a grade of 15° at a speed of 25.5 m/s. The coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is 0.70. (a) What minimum distance does it take to stop the car...

A rear-wheel-drive car supports 48% of its weight on its two drive wheels and has a coefficient of static friction of 0.60. (a) What is the vehicle's maximum acceleration? (b) What is the...

In the figure below, m1 = 3.2 kg, m2 = 5.8 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the inclined plane and the 3.2-kg block is μk = 0.25. Find the magnitude of the acceleration of the masses...

You are racing in a rally on a snowy day when the temperature is near the freezing point. The coefficient of static friction between a car's tires and an icy road is 0.170. Your crew boss is concerned...
