2. An object on Saturn has a mass of 20 kg. What is its weight? (acceleration due to gravity on Saturn is 10.44 m/s/s)
3. A force of 30 N acts upon a 7 kg block. Calculate its acceleration
4. Four women push a stalled car. Each woman pushes with a 375 N force. What is the mass of the car if the car accelerates at 1.5 m/s^2?
5. When an F-14 airplane takes off an aircraft carrier, it is literally catapulted off the flight deck. The plane’s final speed at take-off is 100 m/s. The F-14 starts from rest. The plane accelerates in 5 seconds & has a mass of 35,000 kg. What is the total force that gets the F-14 in the air?
6. A car has a mass of 1700 kg & is traveling at a speed of 45 m/s. What is its momentum?
7. Karen needs to hang a picture in her bedroom. She uses a hammer to drive the nail into the wall. Find the force exerted by the hammer on the nail if the hammer stays in contact with the nail for 0.3 s & has an impulse of 30 Ns
8. Two train cars collide. The smaller car is 1500 kg & the larger car is 3500 kg. Before the collision, the smaller car was at rest, while the larger car was traveling at 15 m/s. After the collision, the smaller car had a velocity of 20 m/s. What was the final velocity of the larger car?
9. A 120 kg football player has the ball & is running toward the goal at 7 m/s when he is met head on by a 170 kg linebacker running at 5 m/s. Assume the linebacker tackles & holds onto the other player. Will there be a touchdown?
No, because the final velocity is -0.034 m/s.
Yes, because the final velocity is -0.034 m/s.
No, because the final velocity is 5.83 m/s.
Yes, because the final velocity is 5.83 m/s,
10. You are at the bowling alley trying to get a single pin spare. The roll is a little to the side, so the bowling ball hits the pin off center, causing the pin to shoot off toward the left side of the lane. What direction does the ball go?
To the right
To the left
11. Imagine a 1200 kg car traveling in the positive x-direction at 30 m/s & an identical car traveling in the opposite direction at -30 m/s. Do the two cars have the same kinetic energy?
Yes, because one is positive & the other is negative.
Yes, because you have to square velocity to find KE.
No, because one is positive & the other is negative.
No, because you have to square velocity to find KE.
12. Imagine a glass cup sitting on a table. The glass has a mass of 0.6 kg & its position is 2.4 m off the ground. What is its gravitational potential energy?
13. A spring attached to the ceiling has an original length of 0.2 m & a spring constant of 50 N/m. It is stretched downward 0.2 m by a force. How much potential energy does it have?
