    Inelastic collisions occur when the kinetic energy of an object is not conserved, but converted into other forms of energy, such as heat or potential energy. As such, they still obey the conservation of energy principle that energy cannot be created or destroyed. When two bodies undergo an inelastic collision, their combined initial kinetic energy is not equal to the final kinetic energy of the system. When a tennis ball bounces on the ground, the kinetic energy that the ball possesses just…

    The differences between barefoot and shod running Introduction: Humans have the ability to perform various movements, such as jumping, walking, running, etc. However, tend not to think the essentials of movement as they are not applying the mechanisms that allow them to move from one place to another. The amount of energy required to walk at a comfortable place is very small in comparison with other activities (Everett and Kell, 2010). The study of De Wit et al, (2000) concluded that,…

    1. Derive the mathematical expression for the Lorentz transformation equation. relative orientation of the co-ordinate systems indicated in fig.2 A light-signal, which is proceeding along the positive axis of x, is transmitted according to the equation : x - ct = 0 _______ (1). Since the same light-signal has to be transmitted relative to K1 with the velocity c, the propagation relative to the system K1 will be represented by the analogous formula x' - ct' = 0 _______(2) therefore:…

    How do speedometers work? A: A speedometer is a gauge that measures the instantaneous speed of a vehicle. Speedometers became standard in all motor vehicles in 1910 Speedometers were created by the Croatian engineer Josip Belušić in 1855 Uses the rotation of the wheels to work When the cars engine turns over the drive shaft spins to turn the wheels The speedometer cable which is powered by the driveshaft also spins A magnet located inside the speed cup (made of aluminum) of the car spins at the…

    Mousetrap Car Lab Report

    • 1027 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Introduction: The purpose of this lab is to help students gain a better understanding of physical concepts such as work (which occurs when an applied force moves an object.) torque (defined as a twisting force), energy and rotational inertia (an object's resistance to rotation). Experimental Design: My group’s testable question throughout the mousetrap car experiment was: If we add and subtract factors such as material, weight and shape, from the wheels of our car, how will it affect the…

    Drag Investigation

    • 880 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Projectiles, such as the ones shot from cannons, are affected by drag or air resistance. The amount of drag exerted on to an object is affected by many different factors, such as air density and the size of the projectile. It is important to understand drag, as it affects the distance an object is able to travel if it is not influenced by outside forces, such as a cannons projectile. The equation for drag is shown below. F=pCA/2 v^2 p = The density of the air. C = The drag coefficient of the…
