# Question 8 of 10It takes a person 22 seconds to swim in a straight line from the south end ofa pool to the north end of the pool, a distance of 28 meters. What is theswimmer's velocity?A. 1.3 m/s southB. 1.3 m/s northC. 0.8 m/s southD. 0.8 m/s north

The correct answer is B. 1.3 m/s north

Explanation:

Velocity is a factor that describes how fast or slow the motion of a body occurs and its direction. Moreover, this can be calculated by dividing the total displacement into the time of movement, and the final result is expressed in units such as meters per second followed by the direction, for example, 152 m/s south. The process to calculate the velocity of the swimmer is shown below.

This means the velocity of the swimmer is 1.27 m/s, which can be rounded as 1.3 m/s. Additionally, if the direction is considered it would be 1.3 m/s north because the swimmer went from the south of the pool to its north.

Explanation:

confirmed

What If? What would be the new angular momentum of the system (in kg · m2/s) if each of the masses were instead a solid sphere 15.0 cm in diameter? (Round your answer to at least two decimal places.)

To find the new angular momentum of the system if each of the masses were solid spheres, calculate the moment of inertia for each sphere using the formula (2/5) × m × r^2. Multiply the moment of inertia of each sphere by the angular velocity of the system to find the new angular momentum.

### Explanation:

The angular momentum of a system can be found by multiplying the moment of inertia of the system with its angular velocity.

If each of the masses were instead a solid sphere 15.0 cm in diameter, we would need to calculate the moment of inertia of each sphere using the formula for the moment of inertia of a solid sphere, I = (2/5) × m × r^2, where m is the mass and r is the radius of the sphere.

Once we have the moment of inertia for each sphere, we can multiply it by the angular velocity of the system to find the new angular momentum.

The new angular momentum, given the same angular speed, will be 0.9 times the original, as the moment of inertia for the system is replaced with that of solid spheres of given mass and radius.

### Explanation:

The question is asking for the new angular momentum of a sphere with a given diameter if we replace each of the masses in a given system with it. To compute the new angular momentum, it's crucial to recognize that angular momentum (L) is given by the product of the moment of inertia (I) and angular velocity (w). The moment of inertia for a solid sphere is given by (2/5)mr^2, where m is the mass and r is the radius of the sphere. Since angular velocity has not been specified in the question, it would be assumed to remain unchanged.

So, for this specific system, each mass is replaced with a solid sphere of mass 20 kg and radius 15 cm (or 0.15 m). Thus using the formula for solid sphere inertia, I = (2/5)*(20 kg)*(0.15 m)^2 = 0.9 kg*m^2. If w remains the same, then the new angular momentum L = I * w will be 0.9 times the original angular momentum. This is because w is the same but the moment of inertia has a new value due to the shape and size of the new masses.

### what is velocity ?

Velocity is the parameter which is different from speed,  can be defined as the rate at which the position of the object is changed with respect to time, it is basically speeding the object in a specific direction in a specific rate.

Velocity is a  vector quantity which shows both magnitude  and direction  and The SI unit of velocity is meter per second (ms-1). If there is a change in magnitude or the direction of velocity of a body, then it is said to be accelerating.

Finding the final velocity is simple but few calculations and basic conceptual knowledge are needed.

Explanation:

A rocket is attached to a toy car that is confined to move in the x-direction ONLY. At time to = 0 s, the car is not moving but the rocket is lit, so the toy car accelerates in the +x-direction at 5.35 m/s2. At t; = 3.60 s, the rocket's fuel is used up, and the toy car begins to slow down at a rate of 1.95 m/s2 because of friction. A very particular physics professor wants the average velocity for the entire trip of the toy car to be +6.50 m/s. In order to make this happen, the physics professor plans to push the car (immediately after it comes to rest by friction) with a constant velocity for 4.50 sec. What displacement must the physics professor give the car (immediately after it comes to rest by friction) in order for its average velocity to be +6.50 m/s for its entire trip (measured from the time the rocket is lit to the time the physics professor stops pushing the car)?

What displacement must the physics professor give the car

A vertical scale on a spring balance reads from 0 to 245 N . The scale has a length of 10.0 cm from the 0 to 245 N reading. A fish hanging from the bottom of the spring oscillates vertically at a frequency of 2.55 Hz . Ignoring the mass of the spring, what is the mass m of the fish?

mass m of the fish is 7.35 kg

Explanation:

Given data

spring balance reads = 0 to 245 N

length = 10.0 cm

scale reading = 0 to 245 N

frequency f = 2.55 Hz

to find out

mass m of the fish

solution

we know the relation that is

ω = √(k/m)    ......................1

here k = spring  reading / length = 245 / 0.135

k = 1814.81 N/m

and

ω = 2π × f

ω = 2π × 2.5 = 15.71 rad/s

so put all value in equation 1 we get  m

ω = √(k/m)

15.71 = √(1814.81/m)

so m = 7.35

mass m of the fish is 7.35 kg

9.55 kg

Explanation:

F = 245 N

Let K be te spring constant

F = K x

K = 245 / 0.1 = 2450 N/m

ω = 2 x π x f = 2 x 3.14 x 2.55 = 16.014 rad/s

where m be the mass of fish

m = 9.55 kg
