Â

2. A tennis ball may leave a top playerâ€™s racket on the serve with a speed of 65.0 m/s. If the ballâ€™s mass m= is 0.0600 kg and it is in contact with the racket for t=0.0300 s, what is the average force exerted on the ball?

Â

3. A 1500 kg car traveling at 15 m/s collides with a 500 kg moose which is at rest. If the moose is knocked backward at 20 m/s, what happens to the car?

c) A 50 kg gorilla is sitting on the limb of tree 4 meters above the ground.

Â

6. Find the gravitational potential energy of the gorilla sitting on in the tree.

Â

a. Gorilla through a coconut of mass 3kg down with an initial velocity of 6m/s what is the total kinetic energy of the coconut right before it hits the ground

Â

b. The gorilla jumps down from the tree limbs to ground. Use the conservation of energy to find the velocity of the gorilla just before hitting the ground.

Â

c. Use the conservation of energy to calculate the potential, kinetic energy, and mechanical energy of the ball of mass m=3.2kg released from h=4 meter at each given point on the figure.
