(c) What distance ahead will the winner be when she crosses the finish line?
(a) 0.70 m/s faster
(b) Second runner wins
(c) 4.17 m

A football quarterback is moving straight backward at a speed of 2.00 m/s when he throws a pass to a player 18.0 m straight downfield. The ball is thrown at an angle of
$\mathrm{25.0\xba}$ relative to the ground and is caught at the same height as it is released. What is the initial velocity of the ball
relative to the quarterback ?
$17\text{.}\text{0 m/s}$ ,

(a) A jet airplane flying from Darwin, Australia, has an air speed of 260 m/s in a direction
$\mathrm{5.0\xba}$ south of west. It is in the jet stream, which is blowing at 35.0 m/s in a direction
$\mathrm{15\xba}$ south of east. What is the velocity of the airplane relative to the Earth? (b) Discuss whether your answers are consistent with your expectations for the effect of the wind on the plane’s path.
(a)
$2\text{30 m/s}$ ,
$\mathrm{8.0\xba}$ south of west
(b) The wind should make the plane travel slower and more to the south, which is what was calculated.

A sandal is dropped from the top of a 15.0mhigh mast on a ship moving at 1.75 m/s due south. Calculate the velocity of the sandal when it hits the deck of the ship: (a) relative to the ship and (b) relative to a stationary observer on shore. (c) Discuss how the answers give a consistent result for the position at which the sandal hits the deck.

The velocity of the wind relative to the water is crucial to sailboats. Suppose a sailboat is in an ocean current that has a velocity of 2.20 m/s in a direction
$\mathrm{30.0\xba}$ east of north relative to the Earth. It encounters a wind that has a velocity of 4.50 m/s in a direction of
$\mathrm{50.0\xba}$ south of west relative to the Earth. What is the velocity of the wind relative to the water?
$6\text{.}\text{68 m/s}$ ,
$\text{53}\text{.}\mathrm{3\xba}$ south of west

a load of 20N on a wire of cross sectional area 8×10^7m produces an extension of 10.4m. calculate the young modules of the material of the wire is of length 5m
Young's modulus = stress/strain
strain = extension/length (x/l)
stress = force/area (F/A)
stress/strain is F l/A x

what is difference between entropy and heat capacity
Varun
Heat capacity can be defined as the amount of thermal energy required to warm the sample by 1°C. entropy is the disorder of the system. heat capacity is high when the disorder is high.

The quantum realm, also called the quantum scale, is a term of art inphysics referring to scales where quantum mechanical effects become important when studied as an isolated system. Typically, this means distances of 100 nanometers (10−9meters) or less or at very low temperature.

How to understand physics
i like physics very much
Vinodhini
i want know physics practically where used in daily life
Vinodhini
I want to teach physics very interesting to studentd
Vinodhini
how can you build interest in physics
Prince
understanding difficult
Vinodhini
vinodhini mam, physics is used in our day to day life in all events..... everything happening around us can be explained in the base of physics.....
saying simple stories happening in our daily life and relating it to physics and questioning students about how or why its happening like that can make
revolutionary
your class more interesting

c=1/c1+c2/1+c3 what is the answer
This may seem like a really stupid question, but is mechanical energy the same as potential energy? If not, what is the difference?
what is c=1\c1,c=2\c2,c=3\c3
Akinbulejo
mechanical energy is of two types 1: kinetic energy 2: potential energy,so, potential energy is actually the type of mechanical energy ,the mechanical due to position is designated as potential energy

Can someone possibly walk me through this problem?
" A worker drives a 0.500 kg spike into a rail tie with a 2.50 kg sledgehammer. The hammer hits the spike with a speed of 65.0 m/s. If onethird Of the hammer's kinetic energy is converted to the internal energy of rhe hammer and spike.
Nikki
how much does the total internal energy increase
Nikki
you know the mass and the velocity of the hammer. therefore using the equation (mv^2)/2 you can find the kinetic energy. then take one third of this value and that will be your change in internal energy. here, the important thing is that spike is stationary so it does not contribute to initial Energ
