A car is moving at high speed along a highway when the driver makes an emergency braking. The wheels become locked (stop rolling), and the resulting skid marks are 32.0 meters long. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between tires and road is 0.550, and the acceleration was constant during braking, how fast was the car going when the wheels became locked?

A crate having mass 50.0 kg falls horizontally off the back of the flatbed truck, which is traveling at 100 km/h. Find the value of the coefficient of kinetic friction between the road and crate if the crate slides 50 m on the road in coming to rest. The initial speed of the crate is the same as the truck, 100 km/h.

The figure shows a truck moving to the right at 100 kilometers per hour and a 50 kilogram crate on the ground behind the truck.

A particle of mass 0.50 kg starts moves through a circular path in the xy -plane with a position given by r ( t ) = ( 4.0 cos 3 t ) i ^ + ( 4.0 sin 3 t ) j ^ where r is in meters and t is in seconds. (a) Find the velocity and acceleration vectors as functions of time. (b) Show that the acceleration vector always points toward the center of the circle (and thus represents centripetal acceleration). (c) Find the centripetal force vector as a function of time.

The position of a particle is given by r ( t ) = A ( cos ω t i ^ + sin ω t j ^ ) , where ω is a constant. (a) Show that the particle moves in a circle of radius A . (b) Calculate d r / d t and then show that the speed of the particle is a constant A ω . (c) Determine d 2 r / d t 2 and show that a is given by a c = r ω 2 . (d) Calculate the centripetal force on the particle. [ Hint : For (b) and (c), you will need to use ( d / d t ) ( cos ω t ) = ω sin ω t and ( d / d t ) ( sin ω t ) = ω cos ω t .

why

the flow of current is not current
fitzgerald
bcoz it doesn't satisfy the algabric laws of vectors
Shiekh
The Electric current can be defined as the dot product of the current density and the differential cross-sectional area vector : ... So the electric current is a scalar quantity . Scalars are related to tensors by the fact that a scalar is a tensor of order or rank zero .
