A firearms company is testing a new model of rifle by firing a 7.50-g lead bullet into a block of wood having a mass of 17.5 kg. The bullet embeds into the block and the collision generates heat. As a consequence, the temperature rises by 0.040°C, as measured with a high-precision thermometer. Assuming that all the kinetic energy of the bullet goes into heating the system, what is the bullet’s speed when it enters the block? The initial temperatures of bullet and wooden block can be considered identical and the specific heats of lead and wood are cPb = 130 J/(kg ⋅ C°) and c wood = 1700 J/(kg ⋅ C°), respectively.




Let the bullets speed be V .

Kinetic energy = 1/2 mV² where m is mass of bullet

This energy is converted into heat Q which raises the temperature of target by Δ T .

Q = mc Δ T  , m is mass , c is specific heat and Δ T is rise in temperature .

heat absobed by bullet

= .0075 x 130 x .040

= .039 J

heat absorbed by block of wood

= 17.5 x 1700 x .04

= 1190 J

Total heat absorbed

= 1190.039 J

So kinetic energy = heat absobed

= 1/2 x .0075 x V² = 1190.039

V² = 317343.73

V  = 563.33 m /s

a) When we were examining the Electromagnetic Tab, we saw that a flow of electrons or a current as we say it, creates a magnetic field. What about the converse, can a magnetic field be involved in the creation of a flow of electrons/current? Therefore is it reasonable to suggest that we can create a magnetic field by having a flow of current and this can be used to make more current? Explain how this can occur



Magnetic field can be used to produce current, infact a changing magnetic field can produce current.

A changing magnetic field in a loop causes the flux linked with the loop to change in turn generating a emf in the loop and therefore a current.

For a loop of area A and resistance R.

I =dPhi/dt/R

В. А

I = AcosФ/R .dB /dt

But it isn't reasonable to say that we can create a magnetic field by having a flow of current and this can be used to make more current because the current generated due to change in magnetic field created by increase/decrease in flow of current will be in a direction such that it will counter act the change in magnetic field caused by increase/decrease in current flow.(lenz's law).

A small object begins a free-fall from a height of =81.5 m at 0=0 s . After τ=2.20 s , a second small object is launched vertically up from the ground with an initial velocity of 0=40.0 m/s . At what height from the ground will the two objects first meet?



33.2 m


For the first object:

y₀ = 81.5 m

v₀ = 0 m/s

a = -9.8 m/s²

t₀ = 0 s

y = y₀ + v₀ t + ½ at²

y = 81.5 − 4.9t²

For the second object:

y₀ = 0 m

v₀ = 40.0 m/s

a = -9.8 m/s²

t₀ = 2.20 s

y = y₀ + v₀ t + ½ at²

y = 40(t−2.2) − 4.9(t−2.2)²

When they meet:

81.5 − 4.9t² = 40(t−2.2) − 4.9(t−2.2)²

81.5 − 4.9t² = 40t − 88 − 4.9 (t² − 4.4t + 4.84)

81.5 − 4.9t² = 40t − 88 − 4.9t² + 21.56t − 23.716

81.5 = 61.56t − 111.716

193.216 = 61.56t

t = 3.139

The position at that time is:

y = 81.5 − 4.9(3.139)²

y = 33.2

true. b, c and d


Let's review each statement separately  

a) False. The kinematics studies the position, speed and acceleration of the bodies, but not what causes these changes

b) True. Velocity is the displacement between time, displacement is a vector, and time is a scalar, so the division between them gives a vector

c) True. speed is the displacement that is a length between time, so its unit is length / time

d) true  desaceleration = - aceleration

The figure shows a crane whose weight is 12.5 kN and center of gravity in G. (a) If the crane needs to suspend the 2.5kN drum, determine the reactions on the wheel in A and B when the boom is in the position shown.(b) Considering the same situation illustrated, what is the value of the maximum weight that the crane can suspend without tipping over?



(a) Ra = 9.25 kN; Rb = 5.75 kN

(b) 26.7 kN


(a) Draw a free-body diagram of the crane.  There are four forces:

Reaction Ra pushing up at A,

Reaction Rb pushing up at B,

Weight force 12.5 kN pulling down at G,

and weight force 2.5 kN pulling down at F.

Sum of moments about B in the counterclockwise direction:

∑τ = Iα

-Ra (0.66 m + 0.42 m + 2.52 m) + 12.5 kN (2.52 m + 0.42 m) − 2.5 kN ((3.6 m + 0.9 m) cos 30° − 2.52 m) = 0

-Ra (3.6 m) + 12.5 kN (2.94 m) − 2.5 kN (1.38 m) = 0

Ra = 9.25 kN

Sum of moments about A in the counterclockwise direction:

∑τ = Iα

Rb (0.66 m + 0.42 m + 2.52 m) − 12.5 kN (0.66 m) − 2.5 kN ((3.6 m + 0.9 m) cos 30° + 0.66 m + 0.42 m) = 0

Rb (3.6 m) − 12.5 kN (0.66 m) − 2.5 kN (4.98 m) = 0

Rb = 5.75 kN

Alternatively, you can use sum of the forces in the y direction as your second equation.

∑F = ma

Ra + Rb − 12.5 kN − 2.5 kN = 0

Ra + Rb = 15 kN

9.25 kN + Rb = 15 kN

Rb = 5.75 kN

However, you must be careful.  If you make a mistake in the first equation, it will carry over to this equation.

(b) At the maximum weight, Ra = 0.

Sum of the moments about B in the counterclockwise direction:

∑τ = Iα

12.5 kN (2.52 m + 0.42 m) − F ((3.6 m + 0.9 m) cos 30° − 2.52 m) = 0

12.5 kN (2.94 m) − F (1.38 m) = 0

F = 26.7 kN

A person jumps out a fourth-story window 14 m above a firefighter safety net. The survivor stretches the net 1.8 m before coming to rest. what was the deceleration experienced by the survivor? Use g = 9.8 m/s2 Calculate to one decimal.



The deceleration is  [tex]a = - 76.27 m/s^2[/tex]


From the question we are told that

   The height above  firefighter safety net is [tex]H = 14 \ m[/tex]

   The length by which the net is stretched is [tex]s = 1.8 \ m[/tex]


From the law of energy conservation

    [tex]KE_T + PE_T = KE_B + PE_B[/tex]

 Where [tex]KE_T[/tex] is the kinetic energy of the person before jumping which equal to zero(because to kinetic energy at maximum height )

   and  [tex]PE_T[/tex] is the potential energy of the before jumping  which is mathematically represented at

          [tex]PE_T = mg H[/tex]

and  [tex]KE_B[/tex] is the kinetic energy of the person just before landing on the safety net  which is mathematically represented at

        [tex]KE_B = \frac{1}{2} m v^2[/tex]

and  [tex]PE_B[/tex] is the potential energy of the person as he lands on the safety net which has a value of zero (because it is converted to kinetic energy )

   So the above equation becomes

          [tex]mgH = \frac{1}{2} m v^2[/tex]

=>           [tex]v = \sqrt{2 gH }[/tex]

    substituting values

                [tex]v = 16.57 m/s[/tex]

Applying the equation o motion

             [tex]v_f = v + 2 a s[/tex]

Now the final velocity is zero because the person comes to rest


         [tex]0 = 16.57 + 2 * a * 1.8[/tex]

            [tex]a = - \frac{16.57^2 }{2 * 1.8}[/tex]

            [tex]a = - 76.27 m/s^2[/tex]

A cube, 1 m on each edge, is held 0.75 m below the surface of a pool of water by a rope. The mass of the cube is 700 kg, and the weight distribution is such that one face remains parallel to the surface of the water. a. Find the tension in the rope. b. Assuming the rope is cut, how far will the cube protrude from the water




The mass of cube = 700 kg

volume = 1 m³

density = 700 kg / m²

Its density is less than that of water so it will try to float on the surface .

Tension in rope will be equal to net upward force

upthrust = volume x density of water x g

= 1 x 10³ x 9.8

= 9800 N

weight of cube = mass x g

= 700 x 9.8

= 6860 N .

Net upward force = 9800 - 6860

= 2940 N.

Tension in the rope = 2940 N.

Rope will hold the cube inside and not allow it to go outside water .

b )

If rope is cut , cube being lighter , will float on surface of water .

Part of cube inside water while floating

= 6860 / 9800

= .7

.7 m will remain inside water

part floating outside

Electric motors convert electrical energy to mechanical energy. When the current-carrying coil is placed between the magnetic poles, a force acts on it that causes it to rotate. The image below shows a simple electric motor. The motor is used to lift metal boxes. How can the motor be changed to be able to lift a heavier box? A. rotate the coil in a counter-clockwise direction B. add more loops of wire between the magnets C. change the polarity of the magnet D. decrease the size of the magnets



B. add more loops of wire between the magnets


this would increase the magnetic force acting on the rod therefore increasing

By adding more loops of wire between the magnets the motor is changed to be able to lift a heavier box.

What is an electric motor?

An electric motor is a mechanism that turns electricity into mechanical energy.

The interaction between the motor's magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding generates force in the form of torque imparted to the motor's shaft in most electric motors.

An electric generator is physically equivalent to an electric motor, but it converts mechanical energy into electrical energy using a reversed flow of power.

The load capacity in the motor can be increased by increasing the no of loops. So by adding more loops of wire between the magnets the motor is changed to be able to lift a heavier box.

Hence option B is correct.

Dogs keep themselves cool by panting, rapidly breathing air in and out. Panting results in evaporation from moist tissues of the airway and lungs, which cools the animal. Measurements show that, on a 35∘C day with a relative humidity of 50%, a 12 kg dog loses 1.0 g of water per minute if it is panting vigorously. What rate of heat loss, in watts, does this achieve?


The rate of heat loss, in watts, does this achieve is 37.66 W


It leads in cooling since water absorbs heat equivalent to mass times latent heat of evaporation to get converted into vapor .


latent heat of evaporation of water = 2260 x 10³ J / kg or 2260 J / g


in the evaporation of 1 g of water , heat lost = 2260 J


heat lost per minute = 2260 J


heat lost per second = 2260 / 60

(c) What is the value of h0? (d) If the block were released from height 3h0 above the spring, what would be the maximum compression of the spring?








a) W by the block on spring is given by

b)  Workdone by the spring = - Workdone by the block = -5.88J

Your answer:

In Greek mythology, this constellation is related with the time the Olympian gods sought refuge in Egypt. Unfortunately, following their epic fighting with the Titans, peace did not closing for long, as the monster Typhon, son of the Titan Tartarus and Earth, sought revenge. Typhon was once a fearsome fire-breathing creature, taller than mountains and with palms which possessed dragons' heads in region of fingers. The Olympian gods sought to break out by way of adopting a number disguises: Zeus, a ram - Hera, a white cow, Bacchus (another model of the fable suggests Pan) a goat. As Typhon approached, Bacchus/Pan threw himself into the Nile but, in a panic, solely succeeded in altering part of his body, ending up with a goat's physique and the tail of a fish. Meanwhile, Zeus had been dismembered via Typhon, however was saved when Bacchus/Pan let out an ear-splitting yell, distracting the monster lengthy ample for an agile Hermes to gather the supreme god's limbs and cautiously fix him. In gratitude, Zeus transferred Bacchus/Pan to the heavens.


Located in the Southern Hemisphere, Capricornus represents a creature that is a blend of fish and goat; the name means "goat horn" in Latin. While it is one of the Zodiac constellations identified by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century, Capricornus is often used when referring to the constellation, while Capricorn is used in conjunction with the sign of the Zodiac.Locating Capricornus

To find the arrowhead-shaped Capricornus in the sky, look for the Summer Triangle and make a line from Vega through Altair to the lower southern sky.

The tropic of Capricorn the place where the sun appears overhead at noon on the winter solstice originally sliced right through its namesake constellation, but the line has since shifted to go through the constellation .

The constellation has its roots in the cultures of Sumeria — which identified it with a mythical figure that was half goat and half fish — and Babylonia, which portrayed it as a goat-human hybrid.

The Greeks associate the constellation with Pan, the god of nature. Part of Pan's lore was that he helped Zeus fight the Titans to earn his spot in the heavens. He escaped the monster Typhon by jumping into the Nile, but only half of his body was submerged, so he was a fish in the part of his body that remained underwater. Other spins on the tale have the constellation associated with Amalthaea, the mythical goat that acted as a foster mother to Zeus as an infant.
