What does a planet need in order to retain an atmosphere? How does an atmosphere affect the surface of a planet and the ability of life to exist?
In order to retain atmosphere a planet needs to have gravity. A gravity sufficient enough to create a dense atmosphere around it, so that it can retain heat coming from sun. Mars has shallow atmosphere as its gravity is only 40% of the Earth's gravity. Venus is somewhat similar to Earth but due to green house effect its temperature is very high. Atmosphere has a huge impact on the planets ability to sustain life. Presence of certain kind gases make the atmosphere poisnous for life. The atmosphere should be such that it allows water to remain in liquid form and maintain an optimum temperature suitable for life.
A wire with mass 90.0 g is stretched so that its ends are tied down at points 98.0 cm apart. The wire vibrates in its fundamental mode with frequency 60.0 Hz and with an amplitude of 0.300 cm at the antinodes. Part A What is the speed of propagation of transverse waves in the wire
We know that
l= 98.0 cm= 0.98 m
Now from the Eq(1)
This equation can be written as
Putting the value f and l in Eq(2)
v=117.6 m/s ~ 118 m/s
A 1850 kg car traveling at 13.8 m/s collides with a 3100 kg car that is initally at rest at a stoplight. The cars stick together and move 1.91 m before friction causes them to stop. Determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between the cars and the road, assuming that the negative acceleration is constant and all wheels on both cars lock at the time of impact.
To solve this problem, it is necessary to apply the concepts related to the conservation of momentum, the kinematic equations for the description of linear motion and the definition of friction force since Newton's second law.
The conservation of momentum can be expressed mathematically as
= Mass of each object
= Initial Velocity of each object
= Final velocity
Replacing we have that,
With the final speed obtained we can determine the acceleration through the linear motion kinematic equations, that is to say
Since there is no initial speed, then
Finally with the acceleration found it is possible to find the friction force from the balance of Forces, like this:
Therefore the Kinetic friction coefficient is 0.7105
in the demolition of an old building,a 1,300 kg wrenching ball hits the building at 1.07m/s^2.Calculate the amount of force at which the wrecking ball strikes the building
The force acting on an object given it's mass and acceleration can be found by using the formula
force = mass × acceleration
From the question we have
force = 1300 × 1.07
We have the final answer as
Hope this helps you
Interactive Solution 9.1 presents a model for solving this problem. The wheel of a car has a radius of 0.380 m. The engine of the car applies a torque of 456 N·m to this wheel, which does not slip against the road surface. Since the wheel does not slip, the road must be applying a force of static friction to the wheel that produces a countertorque. Moreover, the car has a constant velocity, so this countertorque balances the applied torque. What is the magnitude of the static frictional force?
The magnitude of the static frictional force is 1200 N
given information :
radius, r = 0.380 m
applied-torque, τ1 = 456 N
The car has a constant velocity, thus the acceleration is zero
