    car_old The car loses value 15% every year. Determine a time (in years) when the price will be halved.
  • Fall
    rocket The body was thrown vertically upward at speed v0 = 79 m/s. Body height versus time describe equation ?. What is the maximum height body reach?
  • Gravitation
    vodorovny_vrh 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)
  • The projectile
    ballistic The projectile was fired horizontally from a height of h = 25 meters above the ground at a speed of v0 = 250 m/s. Find the range and flight time of the projectile.
  • The position
    motion2_3 The position of a body at any time T is given by the displacement function S=t3-2t2-4t-8. Find its acceleration at each instant time when the velocity is zero.

    dices_3 When you hit ten dices at the same time you get average 35. How much do you hit if every time you get six, you're throwing the dice again?
  • Corona virus
    covid19 Calculate an estimate of the percentage of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) declined due to the quarantine related to the corona COVID-19 virus that lasts for 2 months, during which time the economic activity is down by 80%.
  • Future value
    penize_2 Suppose you invested $1000 per quarter over a 15 years period. If money earns an anual rate of 6.5% compounded quarterly, how much would be available at the end of the time period? How much is the interest earn?
  • RC time constant
    capacitor You introduced 1 Coulomb worth of electrons into the inner volume of a dielectric material with ϵr=6. 30 minutes later, you found that only 36.79% of the electrons were in the inner volume. Determine the conductivity σ of the dielectric material.
  • 2 pipes
    time_12 2 pipes can fill a tank in 35 minutes. The larger pipe alone can fill the tank in 24 minutes less time than the smaller pipe. How long does each pipie take to fill the tank alone?
  • Part-time workers
    mince_3 Three part-time workers received CZK 1,235 for their work. The first received 20% less than the second and the third received 45 CZK more than the second. Determine how many crowns (CZK) each of them received.
  • Up and down motion
    ballistic We throw the body from a height h = 5 m above the Earth vertically upwards v0 = 10 m/s. How long before we have to let the second body fall freely from the same height to hit the Earth at the same time?
  • Simple interest 3
    coins-uk_1 Find the simple interest if 11928 USD at 2% for 10 weeks.
  • Two companies
    calendar The family ordered two companies to modify the garden. The first would be done in 20 days, the second would take 40% less time. How long will they work together if the second company started working when the first worked for 4 days?
  • Wavelength
    wave_length Calculate the wavelength of the tone frequency 11 kHz if the sound travels at speeds of 343 m/s.
  • The half life
    exp_growth2 The half-life of a radioactive isotope is the time it takes for a quantity of the isotope to be reduced to half its initial mass. Starting with 145 grams of a radioactive isotope, how much will be left after 3 half-lives?
  • Two diggers
    digging Two diggers should dig a ditch. If each of them worked just one-third of the time that the other digger needs, they'd dig up a 13/18 ditch together. Find the ratio of the performance of this two diggers.
  • A particle
    integral_speed A particle moves in a straight line so that its velocity (m/s) at time t seconds is given by v(t) = 3t2-4t-4, t>0. Initially the particle is 8 meters to the right of a fixed origin. After how many seconds is the particle at the origin?
