    Motion in One Dimesion: The tortoise and the Hare Race Kinematics

    A turtle and a rabbit engage in a footrace over a distance of 4.00km. The rabbit runs 0.500km and then stops for a 90min nap. Upon awakening, he remembers the race and runs twice as fast. Finishing the course in a total time of 1.75h, the rabbit wins the race. A) Calculate the avg speed of...

    Need help with this question regarding kinematics.

    A ball is traveling at 3m/s then bounces off of a tennis racket and returns at 2m/s. If the ball is in contact with the racket for 12ms, what is the average acceleration? I converted 12ms to 0.012s. Then I listed what is known in the problem. The initial velocity is 3m/s and the final...

    Need help with this question regarding kinematics.

    a) A ball is thrown in the -y direction off of a cliff with a velocity of 7m/s. If the ball takes 1.45s to reach the ground, how high off of the ground is the cliff? (Answer: -20m) Im not getting -20m for some reason when i plug in the numbers. Known: A=-9.8m/s^2 T=1.45s...

    Forward and Inverse Kinematics

    Imagine that you have a robot that is similar to a wrist with its first two axes. Then, at the end of the second link, you have a translational third link that is orthogonal to the plane that the second link is on. That is, if the zero position for the first two links is in the X-Z plane, the...
