Question

Randy an Deborah are standing at one end of a basketball court, each with a basketball. Randy rolls his basketball so that it moves at a constant speed of 5.0 m/s toward the other end of the court. Deborah waits 2.0 s before she rolls her basketball. With what speed must Deborah's ball move if it is to arrive at the other end of the court at the same time as Randy's basketball? The length of the court is 26 m.

Hi I am in physics 1 and I need help with this problem. It saids a boy runs in an open field. He runs 233m due north in 77 seconds, turns 90 degrees to his left and runs 178m in 93 seconds. Sketch a map of his motion and find the following quantities of his motion during this period from starting time to final time
a) Map of his motion
b) The total distance he runs (233m + 178m= 411m)
c) The displacement from starting position to final position.
What I have thus far is I got c=sqrt (233)^2+(178)^2=293m. Would I subtract this number from the total distance?
Please includes detailed steps of how to solve this

2. Two siblings, Kaeya and Diluc, decided to take a walk around Mondstadt, following its perimeter guarded by walls. For those who haven't seen Mondstadt, you can imagine it as a city of walls with beautiful German architecture. Let's roughly assume that the walls are encircling it in a perfect circle. Both Kaeya and Diluc started at the front of the huge city gate (marked at 0 degrees), and they walk separately, away from each other. Assuming that radius of the circular city of Mondstadt to be 500 m, and the constant walking speed of both siblings to be 0.5 m/s, how long until the siblings achieve the greatest separation distance between them?

Peter throws a baseball through a houses window. He stands 3.4 m from the window. The ball starts in his hand 1.1m above the ground and goes through the window at a point 2.4 m off the ground. a. Sketch the problem, including an xy coordinate system with the origin on the ground directly below the initial position of the ball, the y axis pointing upward, and the x axis pointing toward the house. b. What are the initial and final coordinates of the ball?

Galileo thought about whether acceleration should be defined as the rate of change of velocity over time or as the rate of change in velocity over distance. He chose the former, so lets use the name vroomosity for the rate of change of velocity over distance. For motion of a particle on a straight line with constant acceleration, the equation v = vi + at gives its velocity v as a function of time. Similarly, for a particles linear motion with constant vroomosity k, the equation v = vi + kx gives the velocity as a function of the position x if the particles speed is vi at x = 0. (a) Find the law describing the total force acting on this object of mass m. Describe an example of such a motion or explain why it is unrealistic for (b) the possibility of k positive and (c) the possibility of k negative.
