Question

A stunt driver drives a car in a straight line at constant speed while balanced on the two right-hand wheels. Where is the car's center of gravity?

Answer #1

**centre of gravity****,** in physics,
imaginary point in a body of matter where, for convenience in
certain calculations, the total weight of the body may be thought
to be concentrated. The concept is sometimes useful in designing
static structures (e.g., buildings and bridges) or in predicting
the behaviour of a moving body when it is acted on by gravity.

In a uniform gravitational field the centre of gravity is identical to the centre of mass, a term preferred by physicists

since the entire weight is on the right isde of the car there should be something in left so that the car should be balanced so the centre of gravity will shift in the opposite direction. since he is balancing in right it is shifted away from him

A taxi driver starts his car from rest and drives at a constant
speed of 13.5 m/s along a straight road toward the west. After
driving for 10.0 s, the car reaches a sharp turn in the road and
now travels in the direction of 53.5° south of west. Immediately
after turning, the taxi driver slows down his car at 1.22 m/s2 in
order to stop and pick up a passenger. It takes 7.00 s for the car
to stop...

A car travels along a straight line at a constant speed of 44.5
mi/h for a distance d and then another distance d in the same
direction at another constant speed. The average velocity for the
entire trip is 33.5 mi/h.
(a) What is the constant speed with which the car moved during
the second distance d? mi/h
(b) Suppose the second distance d were traveled in the opposite
direction; you forgot something and had to return home at the...

A car makes a trip along a straight line without changing
direction. The average speed of the entire trip is 52 mile/hour and
the entire time is 75 minutes. In the first segment it moves
through 22 miles at an average speed of 40 mile/hour. Find the
car's average speed in the rest of the trip. (1 hour = 60
minutes)

A 1700 kg car starts from rest and drives around a flat
70-m-diameter circular track. The forward force provided by the
car's drive wheels is a constant 1300 N.
Express your answers to two significant figures and include the
appropriate units.
a) What is the magnitude of the car's acceleration at t=10s?
b) What is the direction of the car's acceleration at t=10s?
Give the direction as an angle from the r-axis.
c) If the car has rubber tires and...

Suppose you have a car traveling down the road at constant
speed and not changing direction. It is experiencing gravity, wind
resistance and frictional forces from the road. What can be said
about the car's acceleration?
Group of answer choices
It is not accelerating because it has constant velocity.
It accelerating because the motor is running, propelling the
car forward.
It is accelerating because there are forces acting on
it.
It is not accelerating because gravity holds it down.

1) You are making a circular turn in your car on a horizontal
road when you hit a big patch of ice, causing the force of friction
between the tires and the road to become zero. While the car is on
the ice, itA) moves along a straight-line path away from the center of the
circle.B) moves along a straight-line path toward the center of the
circle.C) moves along a straight-line path in its original
direction.D) continues to follow a...

A car and a truck are both travelling with a constant speed of
20 m/s. The car is 10 m behind the truck. The truck driver suddenly
applies his brakes, causing the truck to decelerate at a constant
rate of 2 m/s^2. Two seconds later, the driver of the car applies
his brakes and just manages to avoid a rear-end collision.
Determine the constant rate at which the car decelerated.

A car and a truck are 135 m apart on a straight road. The car is
traveling East at 60.0 km/hr while the truck is traveling West at
45 km/hr. The truck begins slowing down at a rate of 0.25 m/s 2
just as the driver sees the car. Where on the road do the two
meet?

A 1000 kg car moves in a straight line toward a stationary truck
with a speed of 10 m/s. The truck has a mass of 2200
kg. If the car and truck stick together as a result of
the collision, what is the speed of both the car and truck after
the collision?
a. 6 to 8 m/s
b. 4 to 6 m/s
c. 0 to 2 m/s
d.2 to 4 m/s

1. A car drives west on 8th street at 32.9 mph. The
driver hits the brakes and the car slows down with a constant
accelaration of 4.29 m/s^2. How long (time) does it take the car
come to a complete stop?
2.Aircraft landing on the uss George h.w. Bush slowed
