## Sample Problem Gauss Law

Sample Problem Gauss Law shows five charged lumps of plastic and an electrically neutral coin The cross section of a Gaussian surface S is

## Free Fall Acceleration

Free Fall Acceleration 40E. Raindrops fall  700 m from a cloud to the ground. (a) If they were not slowed by air resistance, how fast would the drops be moving when they struck the ground? (b) Would it be safe to walk outside during a rainstorm? 41E. At a construction site a pipe wrench struck the ground with …

## Constant Acceleration: A Special Case

Constant Acceleration: A Special Case 22E. An automobile driver increases the speed at a constant rate from 25 km/h to 55 km/h in 0.50 min. A bicycle rider speeds up at a constant rate from rest to 30 km/h in 0.50 min. Calculate their accelerations. 23E. A muon (an elementary particle) enters a region with a speed of 5.00 …

## Instantaneous Velocity and Speed

Instantaneous Velocity and Speed IDE. The graph in is for an armadillo that scampers left (negative direction of x) and right along an x axis. (a) When, if ever, is the animal to the left of the origin on the axis? When, if ever, is its velocity (b) negative, (c) positive, or (d) zero? lIE. (a) If a …

## Average Velocity and Average Speed

Average Velocity and Average Speed 5P. You drive on Interstate 10 from San Antonio to Houston, half the time at 55 krn/h and the other half at 90 km/h. On the way back you travel half the distance at 55 km/h and the other half at 90 km/h. What is your average speed (a) from San Antonio to Houston, …

## Average Velocity and Average Speed

Average Velocity and Average Speed IE. If a baseball pitcher throws a fastball at a horizontal speed of 160 km/h, how long does the ball take to reach home plate 18.4 m away? ssm 2E. A world speed record for bicycles was set in 1992 by Chris Huber riding Cheetah, a high-tech bicycle built by three mechanical engineering graduates. …

## EXERCISES AND PROBLEM

In several of  the problems that follow you are asked to graph position, velocity, end acceleration versus time. Usually a sketch unit suffice, appropriately labeled and with …

## Free-Fall Acceleration

Free-Fall Acceleration Free-Fall Acceleration An important example of straight-line motion with constant acceleration is that of an object rising or falling freely near Earth’s surface. The constant acceleration equations describe this motion, but we make two changes in notation:  (l) we refer the motion to the vertical y axis with +y vertically up; (2) we replace a with – …

## Constant Acceleration

Constant Acceleration Constant Acceleration The five equations in  describe the motion of a particle with constant acceleration . These are nOI valid when the acceleration is not constant.

## Instantaneous Acceleration

Instantaneous Acceleration Instantaneous Acceleration Instantaneous acceleration (or simply acceleration} a is the rate of change of velocity with time and the second derivative of position X(f) with respect to time: On a graph of ~ versus I, the acceleration a at any time I is the slope of the curve at the point that represents f.
