# A speed skater moving across frictionless ice at 8.8 m/s hits a 6.0 m -wide patch of rough ice. She slows steadily, then continues on at 5.8 m/s . What is her acceleration on the rough ice?

A speed skater moving across frictionless ice at 8.8 m/s hits a 6.0 m -wide patch of rough ice. Her acceleration on the rough ice is -3.65 m/s².

v² - u² = 2 a ∆x, where u and v are initial and final velocities, respectively; a is acceleration.

and ∆x is the distance traveled (because the skater moves in only one direction).

Thus, (5.8 m/s)² - (8.8 m/s)² = 2 a (6.0 m)

a = ((5.8 m/s)² - (8.8 m/s)²) / (12 m)

a = -3.65 m/s².

Thus, A speed skater moving across frictionless ice at 8.8 m/s hits a 6.0 m -wide patch of rough ice. Her acceleration on the rough ice is -3.65 m/s².

Recall that

v² - u² = 2 ax

where u and v are initial and final velocities, respectively; a is acceleration; and ∆x is the distance traveled (because the skater moves in only one direction).

So we have

(5.8 m/s)² - (8.8 m/s)² = 2 a (6.0 m)

a = ((5.8 m/s)² - (8.8 m/s)²) / (12 m)

a = -3.65 m/s²

A typical atomic polarizability is 1 × 10-40 (C·m)/(N/C). If the q in p = qs is equal to the proton charge e, what charge separation s could you produce in a typical atom by applying

s = 6.25 10⁻²² m

Explanation:

Polarizability is the separation of electric charges in a structure, in the case of the atom it is the result of the separation of positive charges in the nucleus and the electrons in their orbits, macroscopically it is approximated by

p = q s

s = p / q

let's calculate

s = 1 10⁻⁴⁰ / 1.6 10⁻¹⁹

s = 0.625 10⁻²¹ m

s = 6.25 10⁻²² m

We see that the result is much smaller than the size of the atom, therefore this simplistic model cannot be taken to an atomic scale.

) An electron moving along the x-axis enters a magnetic field. If the electron experiences a magnetic deflection in the -y direction, what is the direction of the magnetic field in this region

- z direction

Explanation:

To find the direction of the magnetic field, you take into account that the magnetic force over a charge, is given by the following cross product:

(1)

F_B: magnetic force

q: charge of the particle

v: velocity of the charge

B: magnetic field

In this case you have that the electron is moving along x-axis. You can consider this direction as the ^i direction. The electron experiences a magnetic deflection in the -y direction, that is, in the -^j  direction.

By the cross products between unit vectors, you have that:

-^j = ^i X ^k

That is, the cross product between two vectors, one in the +x direction, and another one in the +z direction, generates a vector in the -y direction. However, it is necessary to take into account that the negative charge of the electron change the sign of the result of the cross product, which demands that the second vector is in the -z direction. That is:

-^i X -k^ = ^i X ^k = - ^j

Hence, the direction of the magnetic field is in the -z direction

How many joules of work are done on an object when a force of 10 N pushes it 5 m?A) 2 J
B) 5 J
C) 50 J
D) 1 J
E) 10 J

option C

Explanation:

given,

Force on the object = 10 N

distance of push = 5 m

Work done = ?

we know,

work done is equal to Force into displacement.

W = F . s

W = 10 x 5

W = 50 J

Work done by the object when 10 N force is applied is equal to 50 J

Hence, the correct answer is option C

The work done on an object when a force of 10 N pushes it 5 m is 50 Joules, calculated by multiplying the force and the displacement. So, the correct option is C.

### Explanation:

The question is asking about work, which in physics is the result of a force causing a displacement. The formula for work is defined as the product of the force (in Newtons) and the displacement (in meters) the force causes. If a force of 10 N pushes an object a distance of 5 m, the work done is calculated by multiplying the force and the displacement (10 N * 5 m), yielding 50 Joules of work.

Therefore, the correct answer is 50 J (C).
