When jogging at 13 km/h on a level surface, a 70-kg man uses energy at a rate of approximately 850 W. Using the facts that the “human engine” is approximately 25% efficient, determine the rate at which this man uses energy when jogging up a 5.0 ° slope at this same speed. Assume that the frictional retarding force is the same in both cases.

A cart is pulled a distance D on a flat, horizontal surface by a constant force F that acts at an angle θ with the horizontal direction. The other forces on the object during this time are gravity ( F w ), normal forces ( F N 1 ) and ( F N 2 ), and rolling frictions F r 1 and F r 2 , as shown below. What is the work done by each force?

The figure is an illustration of cart being pulled with a force F applied up and to the right at an angle of theta above the horizontal. The displacement is horizontally to the right. The force F sub w acts vertically downward at the center of the cart. Force F sub N 1 acts vertically upward on the rear wheel. Force F sub r 1 acts to horizontally the left on the rear wheel. Force F sub N 2 acts vertically upward on the front wheel. Force F sub r 2 acts horizontally to the left on the front wheel.

the reluctance of a body to start moving when it is at rest and to stop moving when it is in motion
An inherent property by virtue of which the body remains in its pure state or initial state
why current is not a vector quantity , whereas it have magnitude as well as direction.
Aniket Reply
the flow of current is not current
bcoz it doesn't satisfy the algabric laws of vectors
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 .

that discovered law of motion
but who is Isaac newton?
a postmodernist would say that he did not discover them, he made them up and they're not actually a reality in itself, but a mere construct by which we decided to observe the word around us
Besides his work on universal gravitation (gravity), Newton developed the 3 laws of motion which form the basic principles of modern physics. His discovery of calculus led the way to more powerful methods of solving mathematical problems. His work in optics included the study of white light and
