Question

To take off from the ground, an airplane must reach a sufficiently high speed. The velocity required for the takeoff, the takeoff velocity, depends on several factors, including the weight of the aircraft and the wind velocity.

If you divide the total distance traveled on a car trip (as determined by the odometer) by the time for the trip, are you calculating the average speed or the magnitude of the average velocity? Under what circumstances are these two quantities the same?

A person standing at the edge of a cliff throws a rock upward from a height of 350ft above ground level with an initial velocity of 65ft/s. What is the velocity of impact when the rock reaches the bottom of the cliff? Round any intermediate calculations, if needed, to no less than six decimal places, and round your final answer to two decimal places. (Hint: Use h(t)=−16t2+65t+350 as the position function, where hh is in feet, tt in seconds. Ignore air resistance.)

A child on a sled moving at 5 m/s, reaches the bottom of the hill and simply glides along, slowing to a reduced speed of 3 m/s after gliding for 16 m. What is the magnitude of their acceleration (in m/s2) as they slow, rounded to one decimal place?

While running a marathon, a long-distance runner uses a stopwatch to time herself over a distance of 100 m. She finds that she runs this distance in 18 s. Answer the following by considering ratios, without computing her velocity.
a. If she maintains her speed, how much time will it take her to run the next 400 m?

A parachutist jumps out of an airplane and accelerates with gravity to a maximum velocity of 58.8 m/s in 6 seconds. She then pulls the parachute cord and after a 4 second deceleration, descends at 10 m/s for 60 seconds. reaching the ground. From what height did the parachutist jump?

The height of an object thrown upward with an initial velocity of 96 feet per second is given by the formula h = −16t2 + 96t, where t is the time in seconds.
a) How long will it take the object to reach a height of 144 feet?
b) How long will it take the object to return to the point of departure?

If a drag racing motorcyclist has an initial speed of 10 m/s, and then he/she accelerates for 15 seconds at 15 m/s2, what is the velocity after 15 seconds? (do not include units in answer)

The men's world record for swimming 1500.0 m in a long course pool (as of 2007) is 14 min 34.56 s. At this rate, how many seconds would it take to swim 0.2500.250 miles (1 mi = 1609 m)?

*arrow_forward*

An object is thrown from a level field with initial upward speed 17 m/s and forward speed 9.9 m/s.
How far (in m) from its launch point is its landing place?
You do not need to put the unit in the answer, just the number.
As usual, ignore air resistance, etc; use the acceleration due to gravity as 9.8 meters per second squared.

*arrow_forward*

The height of an object thrown upward from the roof of a building 408 ft. tall, with a initial velocity of 96 ft/ sec, is given by the equation h= -16t2+96t+408, where h represents the height of the object after t seconds.
How long will it take the object to hit the ground?. Answer in exact form and decimal form rounded to the nearest hundredth.

A well-thrown ball is caught in a well-padded mitt. If the deceleration of the ball is 2.10×104 m/s2 , and 1.85 ms
(1 ms = 10-3 s) elapses from the time the ball first touches the mitt until it stops, what was the initial velocity of the ball?
