A small car of mass 500kg is travelling at 120km/h when it hits stationary truck (of 1.5 tonne mass) head on. The small car rebounds and travels in the opposite direction at 40km/h. The collision...

A car of 1 tonne travels at a speed of 100km/h collides with a 3 tonne van travelling 20km/h in the same direction. After the collision the car rebounds at 20km/h. Calculate the impulse on the van...

A car (m=900kg) travelling at 70km/h hits a pedestrian (m=60kg) who is travelling at 1m/s in the same direction. After the collision the car has a velocity of 30km/h in the same direction it was originally...

The total mechanical energy of an object with mass mm at height hh in a closed system can be written as ME = 12mv2 + mghME = 12mv^2 + mgh. Solve for v, the velocity of the object, in terms...

A sail boat is traveling north at 10 km/h, relative to the water. The water is flowing north at 5 km/h. What is the velocity of the boat to the ground? What is the equation needed???

This is a science/math problem. I'm pretty sure I have to convert the minutes to hours, but I don't know what to do with the kilometers then. I need clarification and steps to show me what I need...

A projectile is fired vertically with an initial velocity of 560 feet per second. The distance s in feet above the ground after t seconds is given by the equation s=−16t^2+560t. For what range...
