    I've hit a brick wall and don't understand work, energy and power...

    Can anyone help?

    What about them? I'll see if I can remember, I'm retaking that exam so I should be able to

    so sad.

    Fast and Furious.

    It's horrible, I wonder how they salvaged his body..



    He was going to a charity event too that or a test drive or something with his friend.



    But it's fast and furious guy :sad:
    You seen his cut face on tiwtter? Its terrible. Sad to see him go.

    Like work done against resistive forces..

    Does that include gravity?
    If it's given is it just resistive force multiplied by distance for work done

    If I know a force constant in a spring and it's extension. How do I find the max height a ball sprung off it can reach if I know the mass?

    Yeah we did too. Works on their HD channel though, try that if you have it

    I can't remember, sorry I think the spring stuff may be the reason I failed the unit first time round actually :erm:

    (Well I didn't actually fail it, but it was enough to bring me down a grade overall )

    The work done against gravity is equal to the change in GPE.

    It's resistive force multiplied by the displacement moved in the direction of the resistive force.

    Ignoring losses, the kinetic energy transferred to the ball is equal to the elastic potential energy stored in the string due to its extension.

    Thank you!

    Yeah it just seems for two marks I must be doing something wrong. It says average resistive force is 250N and the vertical drop is 550m. So I just multiplied for work done against resistive force.

    Strain energy = work done

    1/2 kx^2
    = E_s

    E_s = 1/2 m v^2

    So we find v, does that give us the initial velocity? And then would we suvat with final speed = 0?

    Liverpool. I've now got 4 offers and am waiting on the 5th (Surrey) to make a decision.

    I've got a part time job and I don't think its affecting me much as I only work 1 day a week (sunday). When it gets closer to exams ill just ask for study leave
