The physics classroom website includes text and illustrations similar to Paul Hewitt's Conceptual Physics book , printed by Prentice Hall and used in class. Georgia Public Broadcasting has a distance learning website for both chemistry and physics. The phET simulations are fun virtual lab simulations produced by the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado.

**Homework**: October 28, 2013. Five Plug and Chug problems, p. 57 of your textbook. All problems have to be formatted in the

**GUESS**method for credit.

1. If a Woman has a mass of 50 kg, calculate her weight in newtons.

2. Calculate in newtons the weight of a 2000 - kg elephant.

3. Calculate in newtons the weight of a 2.5 - kg melon? What is its weight in pounds? ( One kilogram weighs 9.8 newtons, which is equal to 2.2 pounds.)

4. An apple weighs about 1 N. What is its mass in kilograms? What is its weight in pounds?

5. Susie small finds she weighs 300N. Calculate her mass.

1. Calculate the acceleration of a 2000 -kg, single-engine airplane just before takeoff when the thrust of its engine is 500N.

2. Calculate the acceleration of a 300 000-kg jumbo jet just before takeoff when the thrust for each of its four engines in 30 000 N.

3. Calculate the acceleration if you push with a 20 - N horizontal force on a 2 - kg block on a horizontal friction-free air table.

4. Calculate the horizontal force that must be applied to a 1 -kg puck to make it accelerate on a horizontal friction-free air table with the same acceleration it would have if it were dropped and fell freely.

5. Calculate the horizontal force that must be applied to produce an acceleration of 1.8
