Nice try! Find an upper-class student to give you one-on-one tutoring with your homework assignment.

P.S. This is a "trick" question -- when a human-body strikes the hard ground, it will lose (not "loose") 100% of its velocity.

When a human-body contacts something fluid, such as water, then it's possible that it will lose 25% or 50% or 75% of its velocity, and continue to dive _below_ the surface of the water.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
Goodluck!

### What is the velocity of BBs?

Varies, of course, with class and model, but:

"Lever action models generally have very low velocities, around 84 m/s (275 ft/s)..."

"The Daisy Model 25 pump-action BB gun typically achieved the highest velocities of its day, ranging from 375 ft/s (114 m/s) to 450 ft/s (140 m/s)...The re-issued version... has a muzzle velocity of approx 350 ft/s (110 m/s)."

### Simple pendulum

When giving physical quantities you cannot omit the units. (an angle of 10 what). You cannot solve the problem fully because you are missing the length of the pendulum.
You cannot use any kinematic relations because the expression of the period depends on the assumption that angles of rotation remain small.
You will have to use the energy conservation principle. Assuming that the mass was released with 0 initial kinetic energy, the kinetic energy at the lower point (angle 10 degrees) is equal to the change in potential energy between the release point and the point where the mass is.
(1/2)mv^2=delta Ep= Ep(30 deg)-Ep(10 deg)
Once you calculate the potential energy (see screen capture) difference you will see that it is proportional to m*g, so the mass will cancel out.
Your turn: Calculate the potential energy difference between the positions at 30 deg and 10 deg, equate the result with the kinetic energy and solve for v^2, and hence for v the tangential velocity.

### A 50-kg block rests at the top of a smooth inclined plane whose length is 2 m and whose height is 0.50 m.How long will it take for the block to slide to the bottom of the plane when released?

If the block is at rest it will never get to the bottom unless someone gives it a push.

The velocity of a body remains constant unless the body is acted upon by an external force.

### What is physical health

Physical health is that state when our body is involved in various physical activities and various activities without feeling restless. When our body is free from various diseases it can be termed as physical health of our body.

### What is acceleration

In Physics acceleration is the rate of change of velocity over time. In one dimension, acceleration is the rate at which something speeds up or slows down.

In mechanics, for a body with constant mass, the acceleration of the body is proportional to the net force acting on it.

F=ma

where F is the resultant force acting on the body, m is the mas of the body, and a is its acceleration.

Acceleration is a vector quantity that is defined as the rate at which an object changes its velocity. An object is accelerating if it is changing its velocity.

When an object's velocity changes, it accelerates. Acceleration shows the change in velocity in a unit time. Velocity is measured in meters per second, m/s, so acceleration is measured in (m/s)/s, or m/s2, which can be both positive and negative.

### Velocity stuck at 330 fps

No O-rings are used to change volocity on Tippmann Markers. The velocity screw is on the left side and is turned clockwise to decrease and CCW to increase velocity. Typically if you turn the screw in till it stops then turn it back 2 turns the gun will shoot about 280FPS.
