to the rifle have the same magnitude
d. the rifle and the bullet have the same kinetic energy
8. Two objects of equal mass hit a wall with the same velocity. They both

The force of gravity acting on the object has increased sufficiently.
The component of gravity along the ramp has increased sufficiently.
The friction has decreased sufficiently while the normal force has
remained unchanged.

15.

Larry drives his Skidoo 7 kilometers north. He stops for


lunch then drives 5 kilometers east and 2 kilometers west. What distance did he
cover? What was his displacement?
Anthony walks to the pizza place for lunch. He walk 1 km east, then 1 km south
and then 1 km east again. What distance did he cover? What was his
displacement?
On his fishing trip Justin takes the boat 12 km south. The
fish arent biting so he goes 4 km west. He follows a school of fish 1 km north.
What distance did he cover? What was his displacement?
Preston goes on a camel safari in Africa. They he travels
5 km north, then 3 km east and then 1 km north again. What distance did he
cover? What was his displacement?
Alex goes cruising on his dirt bike. He rides 700 m north, 300 m east, 400 m
north, 600 m west, 1200 m south 300 m east and finally 100 m north. What
distance did he cover? What was his displacement?

walk home.

3

10.If the above statement is true, then describe an example of such motion. If the
above statement is false, then explain why it is false.
