# A particle travels along the curve from A to B in 5 s. It takes 8 s for it to go from B to C and then 10 s to go from C to A. Determine its average speed when it goes around the closed path.

Askydiver weighing 140 lb (including equipment) falls vertically downward from an altitude of 19,000 ft and opens the parachute after 18 s of free fall. assume that the force of air resistance, which is directed opposite to the velocity, is of magnitude 0.55|v| when the parachute is closed and is of magnitude 14|v| when the parachute is open, where the velocity v is measured in ft/s. assume that acceleration due to gravity has magnitude 32 ft/s/s; remember that weight is the product of mass and gravitational acceleration. (a) find the speed of the skydiver when the parachute opens. (b) find the distance fallen before the parachute opens. (c) what is the limiting velocity vl after the parachute opens? (d) determine how long the sky diver is in the air after the parachute opens. (e) plot the graph of velocity versus time from the beginning of the fall until the skydiver reaches the ground.

An ice-making machine inside a refrigerator operates in a carnot cycle. it takes heat from liquid water at 0.0 degrees celsius and rejects heat to a room at a temperature of 19.2 degrees celsius. suppose that liquid water with a mass of 76.3kg at 0.0 degrees celsius is converted to ice at the same temperature. take the heat of fusion for water to be l_f = 3.34*10^5 j/kg.how much energy e must be supplied to the device? express your answer in joules.
