    most of the PWC is above water) and it takes most PWC's a few hundred feet to come to a stop after being at full throttle. This is because 600 lbs + a rider is traveling at a very high speed with only minimal friction to slow them down (since PWC's are made to travel with very little friction). PWC's also have a problem with turning. When a PWC is at full speed there is a great amount of force produced by the jet and the vehicle is therefor very difficult to turn. The main way to turn sharply during

    Inquiry 2: Force with varied mass Introduction: In this inquiry the relationship between force and mass was studied. This inquiry presents a question: when mass is increased is the force required to move it at a constant velocity increased, and how large will the increase be? It is obvious that more massive objects takes more force to move but the increase will be either linear or exponential. To hypothesize this point drawing from empirical data is necessary. When pulling an object on the ground

    therefore the ball will roll quicker and further. The surface of the ramp can cause friction on the ball; therefore kinetic energy is lost, so the ball slows down. Different surfaces of ramp will change the speed of the ball and therefore also the distance it rolls. When the ball has rolled off the ramp it will continue to roll on the floor, different surfaces of floor will result in different amounts of friction, changing the speed of the ball, and distance it rolls. The weight of the Marble

    because I want to keep the weight of the rocket the same and not add even more mass into it. Adding a parachute to the rocket would help its landing more secure and safer because it would slow down as it goes down from the sky, which would increase the friction of the rocket slowly. Putting a lot of cotton to surround the egg and putting it inside would make the egg more secure because there won’t be any hazard once it causes an impact when it hits the ground. Also, it would decrease the area of the egg

    rock climbing is gravity. Gravity is what every rock climber faces every time they scale a wall. There are several forces involving rock climbing and they include friction, tensional force, and, of course, gravity. Friction is very important in rock climbing. If there was not friction, one would not be able to rappel or belay. Friction from the belay device assists in bleeding off some of the energy from a fall. When a person falls, they have potential energy, which is transferred into kinetic

    will flow (because of the pressure has to work against). The current in the metal wire is carried by electrons. These electrons move through the wire but as there is obstruction in the wire, the electrons move past the obstruction but produces friction. This causes the wire to heat up and vibrate. [IMAGE] I will use amp meter, volt meter, power pack, connecting leads, Metal/wire and a ruler. I will change the length of wire/metal after every time I take the record because that's what

    SURFACE MODIFICATION ON THE STEM OF A TOTAL HIP JOINT REPLACEMENT INTRODUCTION Titanium and its alloys are used in various applications due to their desirable properties. One of the main sectors where titanium is highly used is in biomedical applications where both implants and tools for surgery make use of this element due to its biocompatibility, low modulus and excellent corrosion resistance. However titanium shows poor tribological properties and therefore it is generally alloyed and undergoes

The body has much more mass, and therefore contributes greatly to achieving a strike that is highly forceful, yet doesn't require nearly as much effort as one thrown from the extremeties. Front Stance Equations: W=mg Τ=Iα Τ=Fr; friction F=μN The most basic part of a succesful technique is a proper stance that is well grounded and solid. This helps in many ways, including providing the initial push behind a technique, grounding the karateka during the moment of impact, and providing

    Physics of Pinball Pinball is a fast pace game of physics and skill. With the knowledge of the mechanics and the physics of how the game works it can be played more effectively. Friction, gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy, circuits and momentum are just a few of the aspects of physics apply. The first thing to do to start a game of pinball is to insert the coin. This alone requires many fundamental aspects of physics. The player inserts the coin and lets gravity take over. Gravity
