Motion on a Ramp
In the Soapbox Derby, young participants build cars with very lowfriction wheels in which they roll down a hill. Cars racing on the
track at Akron’s Derby Downs, where the national championship is
held, begin on a 55 ft section of the track that is tipped 13° from
the horizontal. What is the maximum possible acceleration of a
car moving down this stretch of track? If a car starts from rest and
accelerates at this rate for the full 55 ft, how fast will it be moving?

Problem 3:28
A ball with a horizontal speed of 1.25 m/s rolls off a
bench 1.00m above the floor.
a) How long will it take the ball to hit the floor?
b) How far from a point directly below the edge of
the bench will the ball hit the floor?
Circular Motion
There is an acceleration
because the velocity is
changing direction.
Slide 3-35
Circular Motion
Old vinyl records are 12" in diameter, and spin at 33⅓ rpm when
played. What’s the acceleration of a point on the edge of the
record?
Two friends are comparing the acceleration of their vehicles. Josh
owns a Ford Mustang, which he clocks as doing 0 to 60 mph in a
time of 5.6 seconds. Josie has a Mini Cooper that she claims is
capable of a higher acceleration. When Josh laughs at her, she
proceeds to drive her car in a tight circle at 13 mph. Which car
experiences a higher acceleration?
