Question

In the figure, a 3.03 g ice flake is released from the edge of a hemispherical bowl whose radius r is 13.4 cm. The flake-bowl contact is frictionless. (a) How much work is done on the flake by the gravitational force during the flake's descent to the bottom of the bowl? (b) What is the change in the potential energy of the flake-Earth system during that descent? (c) If that potential energy is taken to be zero at the bottom of the bowl, what is its value when the flake is released? (d) If, instead, the potential energy is taken to be zero at the release point, what is its value when the flake reaches the bottom of the bowl?

10 Example 7: A ball of mass, m, and radius, r, is released from
the very edge of a hemispherical bowl of radius, R. What is the
speed of the center of the ball when it gets to the bottom of the
bowl.

A 1.90 kg water balloon is shot straight up with an initial
speed of 3.20 m/s. (a) What is the kinetic energy
of the balloon just as it is launched? (b) How
much work does the gravitational force do on the balloon during the
balloon's full ascent? (c) What is the change in
the gravitational potential energy of the balloon–Earth system
during the full ascent? (d) If the gravitational
potential energy is taken to be zero at the launch point,...

A small rock with mass 0.20 kg is released from rest
at point A, which is at the top edge of a large, hemispherical bowl
with radius R = 0.50 m. Assume that the size of the rock is small
compared to R, so that the rock can be treated as a particle, and
assume the rock slides rather then rolls. The work done by friction
on the rock when it moves from point A to point B at the...

During a rockslide, a 700kg rock slides from rest down a hillside
that is 740m along the slope and 260m high. The coefficient of
kinetic friction between the rock and the hill surface is 0.21. (a)
If the gravitational potential energy U of the rock-earth system is
zero at the bottom of the hill, what is the value of U just before
the slide? (b) How much energy is transferred to thermal energy
during the slide? (c) What is the...

During a rockslide, a 360 kg rock slides from rest down a
hillside that is 500 m along the slope and 250 m high. The
coefficient of kinetic friction between the rock and the hill
surface is 0.30. (a) If the gravitational potential energy U of the
rock-Earth system is zero at the bottom of the hill, what is the
value of U just before the slide? (b) How much energy is
transferred to thermal energy during the slide? (c)...

A
2.9 kg solid sphere (radius = 0.15 m) is released from rest at the
top of a ramp and allowed to roll without slipping. The ramp is
0.85 m high and 5.2 m long.
1. When the sphere reaches the bottom of the ramp, what are
its total kinetic energy,
2. When the sphere reaches the bottom of the ramp, what is its
rotational kinetic energy?
3. When the sphere reaches the bottom of the ramp, what is its...

a block of mass m=2.0 kg, initially at h=1.5 m, is released with
an initial speed of 10 m/s and slides along a track. the track is
frictionless except from point A to point B, where the length L is
3.0 m and the coefficient of kinetic friction is Uk= 0.3. Note: The
block can be treated as a point object. the gravitational energy
potential energy on the ground level is taken to be zero
1. what is the intial...

For the problem below, I know how to work each part out but I
want to know the reasoning behind parts (g) and (h). Why do you add
the new U at y=0 to the potential energies found for parts (c) and
(d)?
You drop a 2.80 kg book to a friend who stands on the ground at
distance D = 11.0 m below. If your friend's outstretched hands are
at distance d = 1.60 m above the ground (see...

A roller coaster car of mass 900 kg when released from rest at
point A (height h above the ground) slides along the track
and inside the loop of radius 15.0 m. The car never loses contact
with the track.
Draw below a free body diagram for the car at the bottom of the
loop. If the speed of the car at the bottom of the loop (point B)
is 25 m/s, what is the normal force at that point?...

The figure shows a ball with mass m = 0.450 kg attached
to the end of a thin rod with length L = 0.415 m and
negligible mass. The other end of the rod is pivoted so that the
ball can move in a vertical circle. The rod is held horizontally as
shown and then given enough of a downward push to cause the ball to
swing down and around and just reach the vertically upward
position, with zero speed...
