# physics question 142

1. A sailboat moves north for a distance of 10.00 km when blown by a wind from the exact southeast with a force of 2.00 X 10^4 . The sailboat travels the distance in 1.0 h. How much work was done by the wind? What was the wind’s power? Your response should include all of your work and a free-body diagram.

1. A sailor pushes a 100.0 kg crate up a ramp that is 3.00 m high and 5.00 m long onto the deck of a ship. He exerts a 650.0 N force parallel to the ramp. What is the mechanical advantage of the ramp? What is the efficiency of the ramp? Your response should include all of your work and a free-body diagram.
1. A man lifts various loads with the same lever. The distance of the applied force from the fulcrum is 2.00 m and the distance from the fulcrum to the load is 0.500 m. A graph of resistance force vs. effort force is shown. What is the mechanical advantage of the lever? What is the ideal mechanical advantage of the lever? What is the efficiency of the lever? Show your work.

( Please answer these in a way a highschooler could respond and understand haha thank you )
