Bidirectional jerk motion on a stopping vehicle?

A stopping vehicle (say a car) has an apparent retardation (which may/may not be constant in magnitude) when force via brakes is applied. I travel by subway trains, and I noticed an odd... more


If a hockey puck slides on a perfectly frictionless surface, it will eventually slow down because of its inertia.

We have to find moment of inertia of a semi circular disc whose axis of rotation is passing through the centre making an angle k with the diameter and lying in the plane of disc .


A boat starts straight across a river at 35 km/hr. The current pushes the boat downstream at 3.50 km/hr. What is the resultant velocity of the boat?

Test tomorrow and I'm not sure on how to work out the equations, especially velocity. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


Physics: What is her momentum of Inertia?

A figure skater can increase her angular velocity from a speed of 2.00 revolutions in 3.00 seconds to 5.00 revolutions in 2.00 seconds by bringing her arms in. If her moment of inertia was 4.60 kg... more
