A fire airplane carries a 620 kg bucket at the end of a cable 20.0m long as shown in the drawing that I made . As the helicopter flies to a fire at a constant speed of 40.0 m/s the cable makes an angle of 40.0 degrees with respect to the vertical . The bucket presents a cross-sectional area of 3.80m^2 (squared) in a plane perpendicular to the air moving past it . (The density of the air is 1.20 kg/m^3 (cubed) what is the tension in the cable ? What is the horizontal resistive force on the air on the bucket? What is the drag coefficient assuming that the resistive force is proportional to the square of the buckets speed ?

A He4 nucleus (atomic weight 4u) moving with speed v breaks up into a neutron (atomic weight 1u) and he3 nucleus (atomic weight 3u). The neutron moves off at right angles to the original he4 (notes this problem works just like a two object system. Keep you mass in u- atomic mass units)

A) If the neutron speed is 3v, determine the final speed and angle of the he3 nucleus .

B) Prove whether of not this "collision" is elastic or inelastic.

A pedestrian walking his dog , waited at traffic lights intersection . Until the walk signal become visible . After stepping out into the intersection he was immediately forced to jump back as a BMW "came out of nowhere" . Although the pedestrian was not hit , his dog was . On hitting the dog the driver slammed on his brakes and skidded to a halt . The BMW driver claimed the driver of the BMW must have run a red light as the walk signal was illuminated . The driver of the BMW claimed the light was green and the pedestrian stepped onto the intersection without looking .

WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH ?

1. Length of the skid mark left by BMW after it hit the dog, 78.6m .

2. Road surface was dry asphalt . Co-efficient of friction between tyres and asphalt surface is 0.6 . All the Kinetic Energy of the BMW is dissipated by friction with the road surface during the skid .

3. The BMW was in a 80Km/h zone .

4. The distance between the intersections is 482m .

5. The traffic lights are timed so that there is 19.5's between first set of lights turning green and second set of lights turning green .

6. Mass of BMW is 5354 kg .

7. Standing starts times for BMW

The rocket engine is attached to the rear of a small bicycle. The weight of the bike and the motor is 35 lbs. The rider weighs 155 lbs. The bike has good bearings and tires, and rolls easily. The rider is bent down low to reduce the drag of air resistance. The track is straight and flat.

The bike is pushed up to a speed of 5 mph . Then the motor is ignited . What will be to top speed of the bike in mph and how far will it have travelled at motor burn out ?

Calcuation is same as the above problem except 'u' is not equal to zero but is equal to 5 mph .
