6 Which of the following are conservative forces? Justify answer. Gravity close to the surface of the earthForce of the engine of a snow mobileForce exerted by a horizontal spring on a massThe force exerted while pushing a child on a swingDrag force on a parachute at terminal velocityGravity of Earth in moon’s orbitNormal force
8 Use the work-kinetic energy theorem Use conservation of energy A shingle is sliding off a 30 inclined roof. The mass of the shingle is 3.0 kg, while its initial speed is 3.0 m/s. It impacts on the ground after falling 8.00 m downwards.Use kinematicsUse the work-kinetic energy theoremUse conservation of energyto determine the final speed at impact.L19sp098
9 From which height must the rollercoaster be released in order for the carts to stay safely in the tracks at the top of the loop-the-loop? What is the speed of the cart when entering the straight part at the bottom?R= 20 m
10 Determine its maximum speed. A pendulum with a length of 1.00 m reaches a maximum height above the equilibrium position of 0.20 m.Determine its maximum speed.Determine the height at which the kinetic energy is equal to half of the potential energy difference between lowest and highest point.Determine the height at which the speed is equal to half of the maximum speed.0.20 m1.00 m

12 A vertical mass-spring system is released when the mass has been pulled 3.50 cm below its equilibrium point. It took a force of 130 N to pull the 200-g mass to the release point at first.Find the maximum speed of the mass.Find the work of gravity on the mass during a whole cycle.Find the work of the spring on the mass during a whole cycle.
13 What would you suggest he can do to make it anyway? A hiker wants to continue on his trail, and finds the situation shown above. He has a long rope which is fixed to a branch above the middle of the river. Behind him is a high climbable rock, but also a lot of space. The opposite bank is higher than the bank the hiker is located on.Why can he not reach the top of the other bank if he just drops off the cliff while holding the rope?What would you suggest he can do to make it anyway?
