A cyclist does work at the rate of 500 W while riding. How much force does her foot push with when she is riding at 8.0 m/s?
A 10-N force is needed to move an object with a constant velocity of 5.0 m/s. What power must be delivered to the object by the force?
At what rate is a 60.0 kg boy using energy when he runs up a flight of stairs 10.0 m high in 8.00s?
A roller coaster starts from rest at a point 45 m above the bottom of a dip. Neglect friction, what will be the speed of the roller coaster at the top of the next slope, which is 30 m above the bottom of the dip?
A roller coaster starts with a speed of 5.0 m/s at a point 45 m above the bottom of a dip. Neglect friction, what will be the speed of the roller coaster at the top of the next slope, which is 30 m above the bottom of the dip?
A roller coaster starts at a point 30 m above the bottom of a dip with a speed of 25 m/s. Neglect friction, what will be the speed of the roller coaster at the top of the next slope, which is 45 m above the bottom of the next dip?

A 1500 kg car moving at 25 m/s hits an initially uncompressed horizontal spring with spring constant 2.0x10^6 N/m. What is the maximum compression of the spring? (Neglect mass of spring)
A driver, traveling at 22 m/s, slows down her 2000 kg car to stop for a red light. What work is done by the friction force against the wheels?
The kinetic friction force between a 60 kg object and ahorizontal surface is 50 N. If the initial speed of the object is 25 m/s, what distance will it slide before coming to a stop?
A 60-kg skier starts from rest from teh top of a 50-m high slope. If the work done by friction is -6x10^3 J what is the speed of the skier on reaching the bottom of the slope?
An 800 N box is pushed up an inclined plane. The plane is 4.0 m long and rises 2 m. It requires 3200 J of work to get the box to the top of the plane. What was the magnitude of the average friction force on the box?
