Mars has a mass of 6.4 × 1023 kg. It has a moon named Phobos with a mass of 1.07 × 1016 kg. a. If their centers are 9400 km apart, what is the force of gravity acting on Phobos? b...

Blake stands in a canoe in the middle of a lake. The canoe is stationary. Blake holds an anchor with mass 15 kg, then throws it west with a speed of 8 m/s. Blake has a mass of 115 kg and the canoe...

Lincoln goes bungee jumping. He has a mass of 102 kg. a. After his jump, Lincoln hangs from the cord motionless, with the cord stretched by 15 m. What is the spring constant of the bungee...

The period of motion for a pendulum is the amount of time it takes to swing from right to left and back to right again. The period is given by the equation , where T is the period and L is the length...

Bill forgets to put his car in park, and it starts rolling forward. When it is moving at a speed of 2 m/s, it collides with Tanya's car, which is moving 3 m/s backward. Bill's car bounces backward...

At a race track, a car of mass 1150 kg crashes into a concrete wall at a speed of 85 m/s. a. The car crashes into the wall, stopping in 0.1 seconds. What force is applied to the car...
