After a ball rolls off the edge of a horizontal table at time t = 0, its velocity as a function of time is given by v=1.2i9.8tj where v is in meters per second and t is in seconds. The balls displacement away from the edge of the table, during the time interval of 0.380 s for which the ball is in flight, is given by r=00.3803vdt To perform the integral, you can use the calculus theorem [A+Bf(x)]dx=Adx+Bf(x)dx You can think of the units and unit vectors as constants, represented by A and B. Perform the integration to calculate the displacement of the ball from the edge of the table at 0.380 s.

A fast food restaurant uses a conveyor belt to send the burgers through a grilling machine. If the grilling machine is 1.1m long and the burgers require 2.5min to cook, how fast must the conveyor belt travel? If the burgers spaced 15cm apart, what is the rate of burger production (in burgers/min)?

The Moon is about 3.8 ✕ 108 m from Earth. Traveling at the speed of light, 3.0 ✕ 108 m/s, how long does it take a laser beam to go from Earth to the Moon and back again (in s)? The same physics was responsible for the noticeable delay in communications signals between lunar astronauts and controllers at the Houston Space Flight Center.

Two cars are moving towards an intersection. One car is 180180 meters north of the intersection and moving towards the intersection at 1313 m/s, while the other is 6060 meters west of the intersection and moving away from the intersection at 1010 m/s. How rapidly are the cars approaching each other 55 seconds later?

A “moving sidewalk” in an airport terminal moves at 1.0 m/s and is 35.0 m long. If a woman steps on at one end and walks at 1.5 m/s relative to the moving sidewalk, how much time does it take her to reach the opposite end if she walks (a) in the same direction the sidewalk is moving? (b) In the opposite direction?

A 238U nucleus is moving in the x direction at 5.0×105 m/s when it decays into an alpha particle (4He) and a 234Th nucleus. If the alpha particle moves off at 22 degrees above the x axis with a speed of 1.1×107 m/s, a) What is the speed of the thorium nucleus and b) What is the direction of the motion of the thorium nucleus ( degrees clockwise from the x axis)?

A motorboat is crossing a river that flows eastward at a speed of 5 kph. If the boat needs to maintain its northward course and a speed of 10kph relative to an observer standing on the river bank, what should be its velocity relative to the river? Hint: Solve for Vbr.

Manong Edmond, a jeepney driver, is travelling from Manila City Hall to UST at a constant velocity of 10.23 kph. UST is 2.47 km away from the City Hall. How long will it take (in minutes) for Manong Edmond to reach UST? Assume that the pathway from City Hall to UST is purely linear and that traffic is negligible.

A baseball fan sitting in the "cheap seats" is d=179 m from home plate. How much time elapses between the instant the fan sees a batter hit the ball and the moment the fan hears the sound? (Assume the speed of sound is 344 m/s, and the vertical distance can be ignored.).

Playing jackstone as a kid, you discovered that there is a certain time before the rubber ball falls and you took advantage of this when picking up the stars on the floor. If you threw the ball 5.60m/s up into the air, how fast will it be moving at a height of 53.47cm? How much time has elapsed upon reaching this height?

Sphere A is traveling with a constant velocity of +12.0 m/s, while sphere B moves at a velocity of +8.0 m/s and an acceleration of -1.0 m/s^2. At t=0, sphere B is 52.0 meters to the right of sphere A. The two spheres are moving on adjacent tracks. At what time will the two spheres meet?
