Problem 6.58

Tarzan, whose mass is 80.0 kg, swings from a 3.00-m vine that is horizontal when he starts. At the bottom of his arc, he picks up 60.0-kg Jane in a perfectly inelastic collision. What is the height of the highest tree limb they can reach on their upward swing?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chapter 16: Temperature and Heat  Heat: The energy transferred between objects because of a temperature difference o When the transfer of heat between objects in thermal contact ceases, they are in thermal equilibrium  Zeroth law of thermodynamics: if object A is in thermal equilibrium with object B, and object C is also in thermal equilibrium with object B, then objects A and C will be in thermal equilibrium if brought into thermal contact  Celsius scale: o Water freezes at 0 o Water boils at 100  Fahrenheit Scale: o Water freezes at 32 o Water boils at 212  Celsius Fahrenheit conversions  The Kelvin scale is similar to the Celsius scale, except that the Kelvin scale has its zero at absolute z
