A block of mass M is placed on a plane of length L which is inclined at an unknown angle with respect to the horizontal. There is friction between the block and the surfaces, so a gentle nudge is required to start the block moving. Assume this nudge is sufficiently gently so that the initial speed of the block is zero.When the block reaches the bottom of the incline, it slides along the table top until coming to rest a distance L from the bottom of  the incline.a) What is the work done by the normal force that the plane exerts on the block? b)What is the work done by gravity during the entire motion? c)How is the work done by friction during the entire motion related to the work done by gravity?  Explain all reasoning. 7635

(no pciture) A 0.024 kg bullet is fired straight up at a falling wooden block that has a mass of 3.0 kg.The bullet has a speed of 670 m/s when it strikes the block. The block originally was dropped from rest from the top of a building and had been falling for a time t when the collision with the bullet occured. As a result of the collision, the block (with the bullet in it) reverses direction, rises, and comes to a mo0mentary halt at the top of the building. Find the time t.s 7617

Bobby accelerates from rest at 121 m/s2 for 1.2 seconds. He then runs along level ground at that speed until he jumps onto a stationary wagon fully loaded with large cement blocks. The wagon and the blocks have a total mass of 122 kg.(No friction involved in this problem. It,s a frictionless environment,) As the wagon, with Bobby on board, rolls along it encounters a hill inclined upward at 15 degrees. The wagon then rolls up the hill a distance of 11.3 m ( along the ground) before coming to a stop.Determine Bobby,s mass. 7463
