    Upside down Inclined plane problem

    Lets imagine that there is an inclined plane with 30 degrees and a woden Block on it. Now you turn the plane over so the horizontal becomes vertical. The koeficient of friction between Wood Block and plane is 0.3. What should be the size of aceleration in horizontal direction, such that Wood...

    Troublesome problem with finding the electric current

    In this problem we have A wire with resistance per unit length of 32 Ω/m that is bent at a right angle. The second straight fragment of the same wire (The blue one) moves at the top of the first one at a speed of v = 4 m/s. The whole system is located in a magnetic field with an induction of B =...

    Simple Mechanics problem - rotating the rod with a ball attached on a string

    To the end [A] of the rod [AB] with a length of d = 1.35 m a thin string with a length of l = 1.16 m was attached, at the other end of which a ping-pong ball is attached. The bar began to rotate in a horizontal plane with a constant angular velocity ω = 2.08 / s around the end B. Find the radius...

    What to assume in this problem of static equilibrium?

    I have a question which I'm going to state in verbatim : You want to hang a picture at a certain place on a wall, but the only available nails are at points 1 ft. to the left and 2 ft. to the right off the edges of the picture (see the attachment). You attach the strings of the appropriate...

    Made up a problem; did I screw up?

    Been a long time since I did this stuff, so my error could be math or physics based. Problem: You have a massless charge of q = +1 nC fixed in place. A small object with charge of +1 nC and mass of m = 10^-3 kg is dropped from a position 1 m above the massless charge. How close do the two...

    Tumble dryer problem

    Hi guys, I've been stuck on this question for quite a while. The main issue I have is that when i resolve the centripetal force, its vertical component is downwards but in order to offset the downward weight shouldn't it be upwards? Am I doing something wrong? I got 75 revs/min but the answer in...
