- Friction coefficient

What is the weight of a car when it moves on a horizontal road at a speed of v = 50 km/h at engine power P = 7 kW? The friction coefficient is 0.07 - Gravitation

From the top of the 80m high tower, the body is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 15 m/s. At what time and at what distance from the foot of the tower does the body hit the horizontal surface of the Earth? (use g = 10 ms-2) - Centroid - two bodies

A body is composed of a 0.8 m long bar and a sphere with a radius of 0.1m attached so that its center lies on the longitudinal axis of the bar. Both bodies are of the same uniform material. The sphere is twice as heavy as the bar. Find the center of gravit - Rocket start

The body launched vertically up returns to the start site in 6 seconds. What height did it have? - Athletic competition

In a 400 meter athletic competition, a participant covers the distance as given below. find the average speed? first 80 meters 10 m/s next 240 meters 7.5 m/s last 80 meters 10 m/s - Calories 2

Ben eats approximately 2400 calories per day. His wife Sarah eats 5/8 as much. How many calories does Sarah eat per day? - Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower in Paris is 300 meters high, is made of steel. Its weight is 8000 tons. How tall is the tower model made of the same material, if it weigh is 2.4 kg? - Forces

In point O acts three orthogonal forces: F_{1}= 20 N, F_{2}= 7 N and F_{3}= 19 N. Determine the resultant of F and the angles between F and forces F_{1}, F_{2}and F_{3}. - Widescreen monitor

Computer business hit by a wave of widescreen monitors and televisions. Calculate the area of the LCD monitor with a diagonal size 20 inches at ratio 4:3 and then 16:9 aspect ratio. Is buying widescreen monitors with same diagonal more advantageous tha - Reconstruction of the corridor

Calculate how many minutes will be reduced to travel 187 km long railway corridor, where the maximum speed increases from 120 km/h to 160 km/h. Calculate how many minutes will shorten travel time, if we consider that the train must stop at 6 stations, eac - Tourists

From the cottage started first group of tourists at 10:00 AM at speed 4 km/h. The second started after them 47 minutes later at speed 6 km/h. How long and how many kilometers from the cottage will catch the first group? - Reservoir + water

Reservoir completely filled with water weighs 12 kg. After pouring off three quarters of the amount of water weights 3 kg. Calculate the weight and volume of the reservoir. - Two forces

Two forces with magnitudes of 25 and 30 pounds act on an object at angles of 10° and 100° respectively. Find the direction and magnitude of the resultant force. Round to two decimal places in all intermediate steps and in your final answer. - Hollow sphere

Steel hollow sphere floats on the water plunged into half its volume. Determine the outer radius of the sphere and wall thickness, if you know that the weight of the sphere is 0.5 kg and density of steel is 7850 kg/m^{3} - Train

The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance of the place from the station where you need to start to brake. - Two runners

Two runners ran simultaneously towards each other from locations distant 34.6 km. The average speed of the first runner was 1/5 higher than the average speed of the second runner. How long should each ran a 34.6 km, if you know that they meet after 67 mi - Icerink

Rectangular rink with dimensions of 68.7 m and 561 dm must be covered with a layer of ice 4.2 cm thick. How many liters of water is necessary for the formation of ice when the volume of ice is 9.7% greater than the volume of water. - Average

What is the average speed of the car, where half of the distance covered passed at speed 66 km/h and the other half at 86 km/h. - BMI index

Calculate BMI (body mass index, an index indicating obesity, overweight, normal weight, underweight) man weighing m = 71 kg and height h = 170 cm. Index is calculated according to equation (formula): ? With BMI index is possible to compare people of diff - Circular motion

Mass point moves moves uniformly in a circle with radius r = 3.4 m angular velocity ω = 3.6 rad/s. Calculate the period, frequency, and the centripetal acceleration of this movement.
