Verbatim question for GR8677 #1
Mechanics}Newtonian

This problem can be translated into an equation:


Note that the sign is compensated for. \dot{x} is positive going up (so that -k\dot{x} acts in the same direction as gravity), and it is negative going down (acting in the opposite direction of gravity).
\par

(A) \ddot{x}\neq g \forall t because \ddot{x}=\frac{1}{m}\left(-k\dot{x}-mg\right)

(B) True. \dot{x}=0 at the top. Thus, plug that into the equation in described in (A) and get \ddot{x}=-g

(C) \ddot{x}=\frac{1}{m}\left(-k\dot{x}-mg\right) could be greater than g, especially when \dot{x} is positive in sign.

(D) The wind friction (-k\dot{x}) term would change sign when going downwards. (See the Note above.) Thus, the equation of motion presented above would be different in sign going down and up. (Also, one could argue that after the force of wind friction acts, to conserve energy, kinetic energy must lessen in the final energy sum. Thus, the final velocity can't be the same as v_0. Or, intuitively, one could see friction as a symmetry breaker, viz., the ideal parabolic path is disturbed in such a way that the end velocity changed.)

(E) Since the force other than gravity is a frictional force, which, by definition, slows down the object, the final velocity has to be less than v_0.

I disagree with your answer. It\'s a question about the classification of orbits. You need a graph of the effective potential. wordify

Orbits have nothing to do with it the final velocity is greater than Vo. https://cincinnati-seo.org/

Oops. I see your post is recent. Most of the posts I\'ve seen on here are several years old so I was assuming. \r\n\r\nGo back to school. This test is too difficult to take without the background. I actually did just that myself. Got a BA in visual art and went back and basically started over (except didn\'t have to tak gen Ed again). It\'ll take a few years but 5 years from now 5 years will have passed regardless. \r\n\r\nGood luck!NEC

The earth is flat! That\\\\\\\'s why is doesn\\\\\\\'t make sense! One thing to know about math, is you can lie in math and no one will know the wiser unless they go check it in real life. Does an empty cup equal a full cup? well in math it does, but in real life you drinking a cup of milk doesn\\\\\\\'t equal to you drinking a cup of air. Youtube search \\\\\\\"Edward Hendrie\\\\\\\" and watch the playlist with 26 videos in it, then you will know about how Einstein is a fraud! also youtube search \\\\\\\"WLC Videos flat earth jesuits\\\\\\\". This problem with newton and physics is that it is a lie, you can lie with math all you want!

To the OP, it took 3 to 4 years to learn this material in the first place. I personally don\'t think I could have done it on my own in that time frame. I know your post is several years old but hopefully you went back to school and took the under grad physics sequence otherwise it\'s impossible to take this test.

shouldnt be the sign of mg be taken as positive in the equation which has been formed in the solution......if we see in terms of force,than ( m*g-k*v) shows us that effective force is reduced hence the there will be less acceleration than g...what are the standard sign conventions for taking g forceNEC
