Question

The car of an amusement park ride with mass m=90 kg slides along a track that we can consider as frictionless. Initially it is at position A at a height 11.6 m above the ground and moving with speed 4.0 m/s. It moves through a valley and over a second hill at position B at a height 7.3 m above the ground. Find the speed of the car when it is at position B.

Answer #1

Apply conservation of energy at point A and B to get the speed at B.

A watermelon is dropped from an amusement park ride that is
moving straight downwards at a constant speed of 1.6 m/s. a. Sketch
a position vs. time graph - put the watermelon and the amusement
park ride on the same graph. b. Sketch a velocity vs. time graph.
Once again, put both on this graph. c. After 1.5 sec what is the
speed of the watermelon? d. After 1.5 sec how far is the watermelon
below the amusement park ride?

A mass m = 86 kg slides on a frictionless track that has a drop,
followed by a loop-the-loop with radius R = 19.7 m and finally a
flat straight section at the same height as the center of the loop
(19.7 m off the ground). Since the mass would not make it around
the loop if released from the height of the top of the loop (do you
know why?) it must be released above the top of the...

A roller-coaster car may be represented by a block of mass 50.0
kg . The car is released from rest at a height h = 48.0 m above the
ground and slides along a frictionless track. The car encounters a
loop of radius R = 16.0 m at ground level, as shown. As you will
learn in the course of this problem, the initial height 48.0 m is
great enough so that the car never loses contact with the
track....

A 117 kg seal at an amusement park slides from rest down a ramp
into the pool below. The top of the ramp is 1.85 m higher than the
surface of the water and the ramp is inclined at an angle of 26.5 ∘
above the horizontal.
If the seal reaches the water with a speed of 4.10 m/s, what is
the work done by kinetic friction?
What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the seal and
the ramp?

You are testing a new amusement park roller coaster with an
empty car with a mass of 120 kg . One part of the track is a
vertical loop with a radius of 12.0 m . At the bottom of the loop
(point A) the car has a speed of 25.0 m/s and at the top of the
loop (point B) it has speed of 8.00 m/s .
As the car rolls from point A to point B, how much...

Block 1, of mass m 1 =9.50 kg , moves along a frictionless air
track with speed v 1 =27.0 m/s . It collides with block 2 m2 =13.0
kg , which was initially at restThe blocks stick together after the
collision.
Find the Magnitude p1 of the total inital momentum of the two
block system.
Find vf, the magnitude of the final velocity of the two block
system.

A roller coaster car of mass 800 kg when released from rest at
point A (height h above the ground) slides along the track
and inside the loop of radius 16.0 m. The car never loses contact
with the track.
Draw below a free body diagram for the car at the top of the
loop. If the speed of the car at the top of the loop (point C) is
17 m/s, what is the normal force at that point?...

Two blocks move along a linear path on a nearly frictionless air
track. One block, of mass 0.112 kg, initially moves to the right at
a speed of 5.40 m/s, while the second block, of mass 0.224 kg, is
initially to the left of the first block and moving to the right at
7.40 m/s. Find the final velocities of the blocks, assuming the
collision is elastic.

Th figure below shows a mass m=1.0 kg which is initially moving
with speed v=6.8 m/s at the top of a frictionless hill of height
h=4.4 m. It slides down the hill until it encounters a flat section
with coefficient of kinetic friction µk=0.8. Find the distance D
the object travels before coming to a stop.
