I've tried solving this question with three different methods but I'm stuck with which one is correct... Please help!
Here is the question, I attached a diagram below:
A 30cm string has a 5 gram pith ball attached to each end. The string is hung over a meter stick and due to an electrostatic repulsion, the string makes an angle of 28 degrees where it is hanging. Assuming the charge on each pith ball is the same, determine the charge of the pith ball.1 AnswerPhysics1 month ago
This question is from the forces unit:
A 50 kg crate is resting on the floor. the coefficient of friction between the floor and the crate is 0.5. a rope is attached to the crate is being pulled at an angle 25 above the horizontal. what is the largest force that can be applied to the rope that will allow the crate to stay at rest?2 AnswersPhysics2 months ago
The question deals with two stage motion:
You are driving at 80km/h when you notice a person step out into the road. You need 0.43s to react and start braking. After that, you brake with an acceleration of -4.2m/s². Determine you total stopping distance.
I attempted this question and got a totally unrealistic answer :( Please help !!1 AnswerPhysics3 months ago
I've been trying to figure out how to solve this, but I can't!
Here is the problem:Sam, with a mass of 64 kg was playing field hockey when she tripped and fell. If her initial velocity was 3.2 m/s [E] and she slid 2.8 m before coming to rest, determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between the grass and Sam.2 AnswersPhysics7 months ago
