Question

At an amusement park, a swimmer uses a water slide to enter the main pool. If the swimmer starts at rest, slides without friction, and descends through vertical height of 2.31 m up to the bottom of the slide, what is her speed (a) at the middle of the slide? and (b) at the bottom of the slide?

Answer #1

As the swimmer slides down, potential energy is being converted to kinetic energy

(a)At the middle of the slide, the swimmer will have covered a vertical height of 1.155m

**(a)ANSWER:

===================

(b)At the bottom of the slide, the swimmer will have covered a vertical height of 2.31m

**(b)ANSWER:

You are designing a slide for a water park. In a sitting
position, park guests slide a vertical distance h down the
waterslide, which has negligible friction. When they reach the
bottom of the slide, they grab a handle at the bottom end of a
6.00-m-long uniform pole. The pole hangs vertically, initially at
rest. The upper end of the pole is pivoted about a stationary,
frictionless axle. The pole with a person hanging on the end swings
up through...

At the Monterey sports center pool there is a water slide whose
top is 5.00 meters above the pool. The total length of
the slide is 15.0 meters because it ‘winds’ its way down to the
water. Since water is running down the slide, there is very little
friction (we will assume none) between the swimmers’ bathing suits
and the slide surface.
Determine the final velocity of a person at the bottom
of the slide before they enter the water....

To test a slide at an amusement park, a block of wood with mass
3.00 kg is released at the top of the slide and slides down to the
horizontal section at the end, a vertical distance of 23.0 mm below
the starting point. The block flies off the ramp in a horizontal
direction and then lands on the ground after traveling through the
air 30.0 mm horizontally and 40.0 mm downward. Neglect air
resistance.
How much work does friction...

A 117 kg seal at an amusement park slides from rest down a ramp
into the pool below. The top of the ramp is 1.85 m higher than the
surface of the water and the ramp is inclined at an angle of 26.5 ∘
above the horizontal.
If the seal reaches the water with a speed of 4.10 m/s, what is
the work done by kinetic friction?
What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the seal and
the ramp?

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.

the dogs are at bell's amusement park. maxwell is on the
tilt-a-whirl (a merry go round type machine that initially spins
horizontally around a vertical axis with passengers pressed against
its exterior walls. it does this without passengers falling out.)
the tilt-a-whirl is six meters (6m) in diameter. fifty kilogram
(50kg) maxwell is 2.0 meters from the tilt-a-whirls center and the
coefficient of static friction between the maxwell and the
tilt-a-whirls floor is 0.20. the tilt-a-whirl has an old motor...

A child whose weight is 190N slides down a playground slide that
makes an angle of 29 degrees with a horizontal and has a length of
9.4m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the slide and the
child is 0.35.
a) What is the height of the slide?
b) What is the change in gravitational potential energy of the
child?
c) Draw the free-body diagram of the child
d) Calculate the frictional force on the child
e) How much energy...

A child leaves her book bag on a slide. The bag, which is at the
top of the slide, starts from rest and reaches the bottom in 1.75
s. The mass of the book bag is 3.20 kg, the length of the slide is
3.30 m and the angle of incline is 28.0°. (Assume the +x-axis to be
parallel to and down the slide. For all values, enter the magnitude
only.)
(a) With what acceleration does the bag go down...

You've been hired by a company that is designing a new toboggan
(Slide) for an aquatic amusement park. In the conceptual design, a
client is expected to go down the slide with a curved terminal and
then move horizontally at the bottom. At the end of the slide, the
customer grasps the outer of a 16.0 m long vertical bar that can
rotate around its center. After grabbing the bar, the client falls
into a pool. When the bar displace...

Your company is designing a new water slide. In the initial
design, a person travels down a curved slide, ending up moving
horizontally at the bottom. There, the person grabs the bottom end
of a 16.0 m long vertical bar that is pivoted at its center and
swings out over a pool of water. When the bar has swung out as far
as it will go, the person lets go and falls down into the water.
Your task is to...
