Newton’s Second Law problems

discussion summary practice problems Newton’s Second Law problems practice A supertanker doesn’t come with brakes. Using engines alone, it takes a loaded supertanker 13 km (8 miles) to stop. A typical vessel of this class has a gross mass of about 150 million kilograms (150 thousand tons) and a cruising speed of 50 kph (30 mph). Determine the average stopping force applied to the ship. Write ...

Newton’s second law of motion Summary

discussion summary practice problems Summary Newton’s second law of motion (also known as the force law) states that… acceleration is directly proportional to net force when mass is constant, and… acceleration is inversely proportional to mass when net force is constant, and consequently… net force is directly proportional to mass when acceleration is constant. Newton’s second law of motion is more compactly written ...

Newton’s second law of motion

discussion summary practice problems Newton’s second law of motion s inversely proportional to mass when net force is constant… a ∝ 1 m and that net force is directly proportional to mass when acceleration is constant… ∑F ∝ m This is more compactly written as an equation that combines these relationships… a = ∑F m For a variety of reasons, Newton’s second law of motion is often ...

discussion summary practice problems newton’s first law summry Newton’s first law of motion (also known as the law of inertia) states that… an object at rest tends to remain at rest and… an object in motion tends to continue moving with constant velocity… unless acted upon by a net external force. In general, inertia is resistance to change. In mechanics, inertia is resistance to ...

force

discussion summary practice problems Types of forces:contact and non contact forces with examples introduction The first chapter of this book dealt with the topic of kinematics — the mathematical description of motion. With the exception of falling bodies and projectiles (which involve some mysterious thing called gravity) the factors affecting this motion were never discussed. It is now time to expand our ...

Parametric Equations Problems

discussion summary practice problems Problems practice An alien is flying her spaceship at half the speed of light in the positive x direction when the autopilot begins accelerating the ship uniformly in the negative y direction at 2.34 m/s2 (0.2 times the acceleration due to gravity on the alien’s home planet, the name of which is impossible to write in human symbols). Determine the resultant displacement ...
