Question

A water slide is constructed so that swimmers, starting from rest at the top of the slide, leave the end of the slide traveling horizontally. As the drawing shows, one person hits the water 5.00 m from the end of the slide in a time of 0.598 s after leaving the slide. Ignore friction and air resistance, find the height H.

Answer #1

**Answer : H = 5.31 m**

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.

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.

1 a) Starting from rest, a 50 Kg person dives
into water from a height of 80 m above the water
surface. Air resistance is negligible. (Use g= 10 m/s2)
Calculate (A) the diver’s KE just before striking the water surface
(B) the velocity of the diver just before striking the water (C)
the work done by gravitational force on the diver (D) the power
delivered by gravitational force on the diver
b) A ball of mass m=0.2 Kg

1.) Starting from rest, a basketball rolls from the top to the
bottom of a hill, reaching a translational speed of 5.3 m/s. Ignore
frictional losses. (a) What is the height of the
hill? (b) Released from rest at the same height, a
can of frozen juice rolls to the bottom of the same hill. What is
the translational speed of the frozen juice can when it reaches the
bottom?

A skier of mass 59.0 kg starts from rest at the top of a ski
slope of height 62.0 m .
b) Now moving horizontally, the skier crosses a patch
of soft snow, where the coefficient of friction is μk =
0.250. If the patch is of width 66.0 m and the average force of air
resistance on the skier is 180 N , how fast is she going after
crossing the patch?
c) After crossing the patch of soft snow, the...

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...

Starting from rest, a basketball rolls from the top to the
bottom of a hill, reaching a translational speed of 6.9 m/s. Ignore
frictional losses. (a) What is the height of the hill? (b) Released
from rest at the same height, a can of frozen juice rolls to the
bottom of the same hill. What is the translational speed of the
frozen juice can when it reaches the bottom?

Starting from rest, a basketball rolls from the top to the
bottom of a hill, reaching a translational speed of 6.5 m/s. Ignore
frictional losses. (a) What is the height of the hill? (b) Released
from rest at the same height, a can of frozen juice rolls to the
bottom of the same hill. What is the translational speed of the
frozen juice can when it reaches the bottom?

Starting from rest, a basketball rolls from the top to the bottom
of a hill, reaching a translational speed of 5.4 m/s. Ignore
frictional losses.
(a)
What is the height of the hill?
(b)
Released from rest at the same height, a can of frozen juice rolls
to the bottom of the same hill. What is the translational speed of
the frozen juice can when it reaches the bottom?
