Luke Skywalker's X-Wing
After Luke Skywalker got his X-Wing fighter out of the swamp on Dagobah, he wanted to make it fly. The mass of the ship is 5,000 kg. Luke applies (using the force) an upward force of x Newtons. Yoda, who doesn't want Luke to get too confident, applies a downward force which is two-thirds of Luke's force.
Luke's Skywalker X-Wing fighter lifts off to a height of 2 km in 5 seconds. How much force did Luke apply?
SolutionIn order to make it feasible for teachers to use these problems in their classwork, no solutions are publicly visible, so students cannot simply look up the answers. If you would like to view the solutions to these problems, you must have a Virtual Classroom subscription.
If the coefficient of kinetic friction between a 35 kg crate and the floor is .30, what horizontal force is required to move the crate at a steady speed across the floor? What horizontal force is required if µk is zero?
A hockey stick travels backward 11.0 cm while intercepting a 0.140 kg puck. How much force did the stick exert on the puck to bring the puck from 35.0 m/s to rest?
A car accelerates from 10 m/s to 50 m/s while traveling 400 m. The mass of the car is 1500 kg. What force was applied to the car?
Four passengers with mass 85 kg apiece are added to the problem above, how much would that change the force required?
If a force accelerates 4.5 kg at 40 m/s2, that same force would accelerate 18 kg by how much?
A 50 slug car can accelerate from 0 to 50 ft/s while traveling 1000 feet. The car then stops, and a passenger gets in. Now the car can accelerate from 0 to 50 ft/s while traveling 1050 feet. What is the weight of the passenger?
A force is applied to a 1000 kg car, and causes the car to accelerate from 0 m/s to 25 m/s while traveling 200 m. The same force is applied to a 600kg motorcycle. How far will the motorcycle travel while accelerating from 10 m/s to 40 m/s?
1.A horizontal force of 10N is applied to a 30 kg cart on a level floor.
- How far will it move in 3.0s, starting from rest? Ignore friction.
- How far will it move in 3.0s if 30N of groceries is added to the cart first?
A 50 kg sled starts at rest, and is being pushed across a horizontal frictionless surface with a force of 30 N. The wind is pushing against the sled. The sled travels 100 meters while accelerating to 10 m/s. What is the force of the wind on the sled?
A 5.0 kg missle is projected from rest to a speed of 4.5 x 103 m/s. How much time is required to do this by a net force of 5.3 x 105 N?
A mass, m1, accelerates at 3 m/s2 when a force, F, is applied. A second mass, m2, accelerates at 1.0 m/s2 when F is applied to it.
- Find the value of the ratio m1/m2.
- Find the acceleration of the combined mass ( m1 + m2) under the action of the force, F.
