Illinois Jones is being pulled from a snake pit with a rope that breaks if the tension in it exceeds 755 N. (a) If Illinois Jones has a mass of 70.0 kg and the snake pit is 3.40 m deep, what is the minimum time that is required to pull our intrepid explorer from the pit? (b) Explain why the rope breaks if Jones is pulled from the pit in less time than that calculated in part (a).

Lectures 1 2 and 3 Average Speed & Average Velocity vavgdistancetime=dt *speed is a scalar (magnitude with no direction vavgdisplacementtime= rt * velocity is a vector (has direction) → UNITS: ms vavg and r point in direction of motion vx= xf-x0t → xf=x0+t(vx) *with constant velocity Negative slope = negative velocity Steeper slope = faster speed Acceleration aavgvt *rate of change of velocity (slowing, speeding, changing direction) aavgv - n+1 n → UNITS: ms 2 → If v and a are point in the same direction, the object is speeding up afree fall0 ms2 → 1 dimensional acceleration down a slope: as= g(sin) Ki
