Chapter 2, Problem 2.15E

CALC A turtle crawls along a straight line, which we will call the x-axis with the positive direction to the right. The equation for the turtle’s position as a function of time is x(t) = 50.0 cm + (2.00 cm/s)t − (0.0625 cm/s2)t2. (a) Find the turtle’s initial velocity, initial position, and initial acceleration. (b) At what time t is the velocity of the turtle zero? (c) How long after starting does it take the turtle to return to its starting point? (d) At what times t is the turtle a distance of 10.0 cm from its starting point? What is the velocity (magnitude and direction) of the turtle at each of those times? (e) Sketch graphs of x versus t, υx versus t, and ax versus t, for the lime interval t = 0 to t = 40 s.

A rocket with a very particular movement moves vertically upwards. The acceleration of the rocket is given by ay (t) = B − Ct, where B = 39.23 m / s2 and C = 7.24 m / s3. At t = 0 s the rocket is at the origin and has an initial velocity of 23.15 m / s. How long does it take for the rocket to reach maximum height? give the answer in s
A golfer wants to put the ball into the final hole which lies 7.0 m away from the ball and up a slight hill. Because of the incline while the ball moves up this hill will experience a constant deceleration of 1.8 m/s^2. Which initial velocity should the golfer give the ball if they want to make it go precisely into the hole?  Please answer in m/s
A wild horse starts from rest and runs in a straight line 29° north of west. After 33 s of running in this direction, the horse has a speed of 15 m/s.(a) What is the magnitude of the horse's average acceleration? m/s2(b) Assuming that north and east are the positive directions, find the component of the horse's acceleration that points along the north-south line. m/s2(c) Find the component of the horse's acceleration that points along the east-west line. m/s2
