Mass + acceleration - math problemsMass is a property of a physical body and a measure of its resistance to acceleration (a change in its state of motion) when a force is applied. An object's mass also determines the strength of its gravitational attraction to other bodies. The basic SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg). Other are gram, tonne, milligram, etc.

- Chained winch
When digging a well, a chained winch is used to balance the material. An empty shackle weighs 8 kg, a full 64 kg. What force must the worker exert on the crank handle when pulling the shackle with a uniform movement from a depth of 5 m, if the shaft diame
- Angled cyclist turn
The cyclist passes through a curve with a radius of 20 m at 25 km/h. How much angle does it have to bend from the vertical inward to the turn?
- Orlík hydroelectric plant
The Orlík hydroelectric power plant, built in 1954-1961, consists of four Kaplan turbines. For each of them, the water with a flow rate of Q = 150 m3/s is supplied with a flow rate of h = 70.5 m at full power. a) What is the total installed power of the p
- Skid friction
Find the smallest coefficient of skid friction between the car tires and the road so that the car can drive at a 200 m radius at 108 km/h and does not skid.
- A car
A car weighing 1.05 tonnes driving at the maximum allowed speed in the village (50 km/h) hit a solid concrete bulkhead. Calculate height it would have to fall on the concrete surface to make the impact intensity the same as in the first case!
Flywheel turns 450 rev/min (RPM). Determine the magnitude of the normal acceleration of the flywheel point which are at a distance of 10 cm from the rotation axis.
- Accelerated motion - mechanics
The delivery truck with a total weight of 3.6 t accelerates from 76km/h to 130km/h in the 0.286 km long way. How much was the force needed to achieve this acceleration?
- Forces on earth directions
A force of 60 N [North] and 80 N [East] is exerted on an object wigth 10 kg. What is the acceleration of the object?
- Hydrostatic force
What hydrostatic force is applied to an area of 30 cm2 in water at a depth of 20 m? (Water density is 1000 kg/m3)
At what horizontal distance reaches the car weight m = 753 kg speed v = 74 km/h when the car engine develops a tensile force F = 3061 N. (Neglect resistance of the environment.)
Shot with a mass 43 g flying at 256 m/s penetrates into the wood to a depth 25 cm. What is the average force of resistance of wood?
- Sea on the Moon
Assume that the Moon has sea, the same composition as on the Earth (has same density of salt water). Calculate dive of boat floating in the sea on the Moon, when on Earth has dive 3.6 m. Consider that the Moon has 6.5-times smaller gravitational accelerat
