Question

A 52.4 kg child slides down a water slide with a velocity of 1.1 m/sec at the top. At the bottom of the slide, she is moving horizontally, y=1.5 meters above the water. She splashes into the water d=2 meters to the left of the bottom of the slide.1) Assuming potential energy to be zero at the water level, what is the mechanical energy of the child at the top of the slide? MEo=?. 2) How high is the top of the slide above the bottom of the slide? h =?

Answer #1

Solution-We have

Horizontal distance = v*t = 2m

and Vertical distance = 1.5 = 0.5*9.81*t^2

=>t = sqrt(1.5/(0.5*9.81)) = 0.5530 s

Also

vt = 2.0

=>v=2.0/0.5530 s

=>v = 3.616 m/s Answer

1)Here :

Mechanical energy at the top of the slide = Mechanical energy at the bottom of the slide

= >mgh + 0.5mv^2 = (9.81*1.5*52.4)+(0.5*52.4*(3.616 ^2)) =
1113.64 J

2)Mechanical energy at the top of the slide = Mechanical energy at
the bottom of the slide

=>1113.64= 52.4*9.81*h + 0.5*52.4*(1.1^2)

=>h = 2.104 m

A child with mass m = 16.6 kg slides down a slide 4.50 m high,

energy (in Joules) was generated in the process? Answer to two
decimal places.

starts at the top with a speed of 0.440 m/s, what is her speed at
the bottom?

A child whose weight is 325 N slides down a 9.2 m playground
slide that makes an angle of 30° with the horizontal. The
coefficient of kinetic friction between slide and child is 0.20. If
she starts at the top with a speed of 0.55 m/s, what is her speed
at the bottom?

A 35 kg child slides down a playground slide at a constant
speed. The slide has a height of 3.8 m and is 7.6 m long. Using the
law of conservation of energy, find the magnitude of the kinetic
friction force acting on the child.

Starting from rest at the top, a child slides down the water
slide at a swimming pool and enters the water at a final speed of
5.95 m/s. At what final speed would the child enter the water if
the water slide were twice as high? Ignore friction and resistance
from the air and the water lubricating the slide.

A child whose weight is 325 N slides down a 9.2 m
playground slide that makes an angle of 30° with the horizontal.

C.22 m/s
D.9 m/s

Moving at an initial speed of vi = 2.00 m/s, Jimmy slides from a
height of h = 5.00 m down a straight playground slide, which is
inclined at θ = 55° above the horizontal. At the bottom of the
slide, Jimmy is moving at vf = 9.00 m/s. By determining the change
in mechanical energy, calculate the coefficient of kinetic friction
between Jimmy and the slide.

A 25 kg bear slides from rest 12 m down a lodge-pole pine tree
moving with a speed of 5.6 m/s at the bottom. (g = 9.8 m/s2.)
