3. 

When at A the bicyclist has a speed of vA = ft/s. If he coasts without pedaling from the top of the hill at A to the shore of B and then leaps off the shore, determine his speed at B and the distance x where he strikes the water at C. The rider and his bicycle have a total weight of 150 lb. Neglect the size of the bicycle and wind resistance.

A. vB = 35.0 ft/s, x = 41.2 ft
B. vB = 35.0 ft/s, x = 36.1 ft
C. vB = 40.1 ft/s, x = 46.5 ft

The firing mechanism of a pinball machine consists of a plunger P having a mass of 0.25 kg and a spring of stiffness k = 300 N/m. When s = 0, the spring is compressed 50 mm. If the arm is pulled back such that s = 100 mm and released, determine the speed of the 0.3 kg pinball B just before the plunger strikes the stop, i.e., s = 0. Assume all sufaces of contact to be smooth. The ball moves in the horizontal plane. Note that the ball slides without rolling.

A. v = 4.47 m/s
B. v = 3.30 m/s
C. v = 2.34 m/s
D. v = 3.16 m/s

Answer: Option B
