Question

Jason takes off across level water on his jet-powered skis. The combined mass of Jason and his skis is 75kg (the mass of the the fuel is negligible). The skis produce a forward thrust of 200 N and have a coefficient of kinetic friction with water of 0.10. Unfortunately, the skis run out of fuel after only 41 seconds. How far from his starting point has Jason traveled when he finally coasts to a stop?

**Correct answer: 3900m** Show with
steps how to solve, thanks homie

Answer #1

a = (200-7.5g)/75 = 1.69 m/s^2, jet ski acceleration

d1 = 1/2 at^2

d1 = (1/2)(1.69)*41^2 = 1420.5 m, travels this far before fuel
spent

Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2a(d1)

Vf = sqrt(0+2*(1.69)*(1420.5))= 69.3 m/s, attains a final
velocity

d = d1 + d2

a = -Ff/m = 0.1*75g/75 = -0.981 m/s^2, deceleration due to friction
while coasting (assume constant)

Vf^2 = Vo^2 - 2a(d2), where its Vo, is the final velocity achieved
when fuel spent

Vf = 0 = 69.3^2 - 2(0.981)(d2), it comes to rest when Vf=0

d2 = 69.3^2/(2*0.981) = 2447.75 m by coasting this far

d = 1420.5 + 2447.75 = 3868.25 m total travel distance

Jason takes off across level water on his jet-powered skis. The
combined mass of Jason and his skis is 75 kg (the mass of the fuel
is negligible). The skis produce a forward thrust of 200 N and have
a coefficient of kinetic friction with water of 0.10.
Unfortunately, the skis run out of fuel after only 90 s. What is
Jason's top speed?

90 m/s

Sam takes off from rest down a 50m high 10 degree slope on his
jet-powered skis. The jets on his skis still have a thrust of 200 N
and Sam's mass is still 75kg.
If sam's speed is 40m/s at the bottom of the hill, what is the
coefficient of kinetic friction between his skis and the snow?

Jason takes off from rest down a 50 m tall, 10.0° degree slope
on his jet-powered skis. The skis have a thrust force of 280 N,
directed so that the force pushes Jason forward along the slope.
The combined mass of skis and Jason is 50.0 kg. Jason’s speed at
the bottom of the hill is 40.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the
frictional force that must be acting on the skis?

It is generally a good idea to gain an understanding of the
"size" of units. Consider the objects and calculate the kinetic
energy of each one.
