Question

A 75 kg person is standing at the very end of a 6.0 meter long stationary raft with a mass of 225 kg that is floating frictionlessly on the water. If the person then walks with a constant velocity of 1.0 m/s all the way to the other end of the raft, how far will the raft move, and what will be the average velocity of the raft during that movement (as observed by a stationary person on shore)?

Answer #1

A young girl (mass = 35.0 kg) is standing on a raft floating on
a pond (initial speed = 0). The raft's length is 4.00 m; it is made
of wood (density = 700 kg/m3) and has a mass of 267 kg.
The density of water is 1000 kg/m3.
a. Before
the girl gets on the raft, what fraction of its volume is below the
water?
b. The
girl and the raft were initially at rest (relative to the water),
with the...

A lumberjack (mass = 103 kg) is standing at
rest on one end of a floating log (mass = 245 kg) that is also at
rest. The lumberjack runs to the other end of the log, attaining a
velocity of +2.47 m/s relative to the shore, and then hops onto an
identical floating log that is initially at rest. Neglect any
friction and resistance between the logs and the water.
(a) What is the velocity of the first log
justbefore...

A lumberjack (mass = 112 kg) is standing at rest on one end of a
floating log (mass = 250 kg) that is also at rest. The lumberjack
runs to the other end of the log, attaining a speed of 3.0 m/s
relative to the shore, and then hops onto an identical floating log
that is initially at rest. What is the speed of the first log
relative to the second log when the lumberjack comes to rest with
respect...

A person with mass mp = 75 kg stands on a spinning
platform disk with a radius of R = 1.65 m and mass md =
187 kg. The disk is initially spinning at ω = 1.4 rad/s. The person
then walks 2/3 of the way toward the center of the disk (ending
0.55 m from the center).
1) What is the total moment of inertia of the system about the
center of the disk when the person stands on...

Ethan, whose mass is 80 kg, stands at one end of a very long,
stationary wheeled cart that has a mass of 500 kg. He then starts
sprinting toward the other end of the cart. He soon reaches his top
speed of 8.0 m/s, measured relative to the cart.
What is the cart’s speed when Ethan reaches top speed?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.

Ethan, whose mass is 80 kg, stands at one end of a very long,
stationary wheeled cart that has a mass of 380 kg. He then starts
sprinting toward the other end of the cart. He soon reaches his top
speed of 8.0 m/s, measured relative to the cart.
What is the cart’s speed when Ethan reaches top speed?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.

You are on a 20 meter long boat, it weights 1000 kg, and you
weigh 100 kg. Consider the system of you and the boat together.
(Assume the boat slides on the water without friction, the boat’s
center of mass is at its center, and your center of mass is the
same height as the boat’s center of mass).
a) If you are at one end of the boat, how far from
the center of the boat is the system’s...

Superman (120.0 kg),
Aquaman (100.0 kg) and Batman (90.0 kg) are all standing on a 12.00
m long thin log (5.00 kg) whose left end sits at rest in the water
right next to shore (taken to be x = 0), arguing over who has the
best movie. Wonder Woman stands quietly on the shore. Superman is
2.00 m from the left end of the log. Aquaman is 1.00 m to the right
of Superman and Batman is 4.00 m...

A child pushes her friend (m = 25 kg) located at a radius r =
1.5 m on a merry-go-round (rmgr = 2.0 m, Imgr
= 1000 kg*m2) with a constant force F = 90 N applied
tangentially to the edge of the merry-go-round (i.e., the force is
perpendicular to the radius). The merry-go-round resists spinning
with a frictional force of f = 10 N acting at a radius of
1 m and a frictional torque τ = 15 N*m...

21) A person carries a 25.0-N rock through the path shown in the
figure, starting at point A and ending at point B. The total time
from A to B is 1.50 min. How much work did gravity do on the rock
between A and B?
A) 625 J
B) 20.0 J
C) 275 J
D) 75 J
E) 0 J
22) A person carries a 2.00-N pebble through the path shown in
the figure, starting at point A and...
