A car has a mass of 1500 kg and travels with a speed of 5 m/s. The car passes over the top of a convex bridge that has a radius of curvature equal to 10 m. What is the force of the bridge on the car as it passes over the top?

A student conducted an experiment to measure the acceleration of gravity. He used a conical pendulum. The conical pendulum is a string with a bob (weight) that revolves around an axis through its point of suspension.

A block of mass m and a triangular wedge of mass M move together without slipping due to a pulling force F. The triangular wedge has a slope α. There is no friction between any pair of surfaces. Derive an equation of pulling force.

A system is composed of three objects with masses m, 5m and 6m. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the objects m, 5m and the surface is 0.5. Find the acceleration of the objects.

A geostationary satellite is a satellite in geostationary orbit, with an orbital period the same as the Earth’s rotation period. The geostationary orbit is a circular orbit directly above the Earth’s equator.

How high above the Earth’s surface must the geostationary satellite be placed into orbit?
