Question

- You are driving on a country road at a constant speed
*v**0*, which is above the speed limit. You pass a policeman behind a billboard. He turns on his lights and siren, which takes a time*T*, then accelerates toward you with constant acceleration*a*. How far beyond the billboard are you when the policeman catches up with you? - This police car cannot travel at a speed greater than twice
yours, that is, 2
*v**0*. Under what condition will that make any difference to the solution in part a? When it*does*make a difference, where are you when he catches up with you?

(in the beginning the policeman is stopped so there is no acceleration then after time T he accelerates at a constant rate. This is all that was given in the question.)

Answer #1

You're driving at speed v0 when you spot a stationary moose on
the road, a distance d ahead. Find an expression for the magnitude
of the minimum constant acceleration you need if you're to stop
before hitting the moose. Note: be careful when inputting the
square of a variable that has a subscript. For example, the square
of v0 should be entered v02 . Don't enter v20 or v02 ! Feel free to
use parenthesis to make sure your answer...

You are on a county road driving at a speed of 28 m/s when you
hear the siren of an oncoming fire engine. As the fire engine
approaches you, you hear the frequency of its siren as 2830 Hz, but
once it has passed you the frequency becomes 1860 Hz. What is the
speed of the fire engine? The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s.

A motorcycle and a car are travelling along a staright road. At
t = 0 the motor cycle is behind the car by a distance of 58.0 m and
both vehicles have a speed of 19.0 m/s . At a later time,
t1 = 2.00 s , the motorbike begins a steady acceleration
of 7.00 m/s2 and eventually passes the car at time t2
How long does it take from the moment when the motorcycle starts
to accelerate until it...

1) You are making a circular turn in your car on a horizontal
road when you hit a big patch of ice, causing the force of friction
between the tires and the road to become zero. While the car is on
the ice, itA) moves along a straight-line path away from the center of the
circle.B) moves along a straight-line path toward the center of the
circle.C) moves along a straight-line path in its original
direction.D) continues to follow a...

You are driving toward a traffic signal when it turns yellow.
Your speed is the legal speed limit of v0 = 55
km/h; your best deceleration rate has the magnitude a =
5.18 m/s2. Your best reaction time to begin braking is
T = 0.75 s. To avoid having the front of your car enter
the intersection after the light turns red, should you brake to a
stop or continue to move at 55 km/h if the distance to the...

When a derivative is taken of a VECTOR quantity, then the
derivative of each COMPONENT is taken with respect to the same
PARAMETER, i.e, d(x,y)/dt = (dx/dt,dy/dt). When objects travel on
CURVED PATHS, and alternate RECTANGULAR description of the motion
is the coordinates RELATIVE to the path. This has the advantage of
immediately answering questions that are important to us: the
TANGENTIAL component speeds up and slows down the object and the
NORMAL component turns it.

A student is running to catch the bus, which is stopped at the
bus stop. The student is
running at a constant velocity of 6 m/s: she cannot run any faster.
When the student is still
80 m from the bus, it starts to pull away. The bus moves with a
constant acceleration of
0.20 m/s^2.
a. For how much time and how far will the student have to run
before she catches up
with the bus?
b. When she...
