Force on a Waterslide#

content/public/006.Force/Newton's Second Law/Force on a Waterslide/ForceonaWaterslide.png

A 59\(kg\) swimmer travels with a speed of \({{ params.va }}m/s\) down the waterslide as they approach point A. At A, the slide flattens out before the turn, causing the swimmer to decelerate uniformly to a speed of \({{ params.vc }}m/s\) as it passes point C on the horizontal unbanked slide. \(R = {{ params.r }}m\), \(d = {{ params.d }}m\).

Part 1#

What is the velocity as the swimmer passes point B?

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(m/s\).

Part 2#

What is the force at point B?

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(N\).

Part 3#

What is the normal force at point C? Assume the slider does not slip out of the flow.

Answer Section#

Please enter a numeric value in \(N\).
