Question

Two cars moving with same speed 10 m/s but in the opposite directions pass each other at t=0. At that instant they both start to slow down with the same magnitude of acceleration

2 m / s^{2}

**1-)** What ist the maximum distance between the
cars ? How long does it take them to be at the same position again
?

**2-)** Plot the position vs. time graph of the
cars qualitatively.

Answer #1

Two cars moving with the same speed are approaching each other
from opposite directions. The driver of one of the car blows his
horn, which emits sound with the frequency of 400 Hz. The driver in
the other car hears the frequency of 450 Hz. What is the speed of
the cars if the speed of sound is 340 m/s?

Two balls moving with the same speed of v = 0.48 m/s
but in opposite directions undergo a head-on collision. Ball
A has mass mA = 2.6 kg and is
traveling to the left, while ball B has mass
mB = 1.3 kg and is traveling to the right. The
balls are shown just before the collision in the figure
below.
(a) Which ball has the larger momentum (in magnitude) before the
collision?
Ball A
Ball B
Both balls have...

Two cars are traveling down a one way street, but they are
traveling in opposite directions! The ﬁrst car is initially driving
at 13 m/s and the second car is initially driving at 36 m/s. When
the two cars are 130 m apart, the drivers both realize they need to
hit the brakes if there is any hope of avoiding a collision. Both
drivers immediately hit the brakes.
(a) If the ﬁrst car decelerates at a rate of 2.5 m/s...

If at one moment an object is moving with an acceleration of 6.8
m/s/s, and the next moment the object is moving with an
acceleration of 2.9 m/s/s, is the object still speeding up or is it
beginning to slow down? The question is asking whether the object
is speeding up, slowing down, or staying the same speed
during that instant?

7. Two cars start moving from the same point. One travels north
at speed of 15 mi/hand the other travels east at 20 mi/h. At what
rate is the distance between the cars increasing two hours
later?

Two cars drive on a straight highway. At time t=0, car 1 passes
mile marker 0 traveling due east with a speed of 20.0 m/s . At the
same time, car 2 is 1.0 km east of mile marker 0 traveling at 26.0
m/s due west. Car 1 is speeding up with an acceleration of
magnitude 0.30 m/s2 , and car 2 is slowing down with an
acceleration of magnitude 0.50 m/s2 . At what time do the cars pass...

A 2.80 kg box is moving to the right with speed 8.00 m/s on a
horizontal, frictionless surface. At t = 0 a horizontal force is
applied to the box. The force is directed to the left and has
magnitude F(t)=( 6.00 N/s2 )t^2
What distance does the box move from its position at
t=0 before its speed is reduced to zero?

Two cars start from rest at the same location and at the same
instant and race along a straight track. Car A accelerates at 6.6
f/s^2 to a speed of 90 mph and then runs at this constant speed.
Car B accelerates at 4.4 f/s^2 to a speed of 96 mph and then runs a
constant speed.
(a) Which car will with a 3-mile race and by what distance?
(b) What will be the maximum lead of A over B?...

Two cars start from rest at a red stop light. When the light
turns green, both cars accelerate forward. The blue car accelerates
uniformly at a rate of 5.1 m/s2 for 4.3 seconds. It then continues
at a constant speed for 11.9 seconds, before applying the brakes
such that the car’s speed decreases uniformly coming to rest 361.87
meters from where it started. The yellow car accelerates uniformly
for the entire distance, finally catching the blue car just as the...

Consider two very long conducting parallel wires carry currents
in opposite directions such that one is triple of the other. The
distance between wires is 30 cm. The magnetic field at points on a
line between the wires, and at a distance of 5 cm from the wire
carrying the smaller current, is 2.5×10-5 T. a) Draw a diagram of
the situation. Assume the wires are placed in the x-direction. Draw
the direction of the magnetic field at points on...
