a distance of 2.5 m? Assumed the gurney moves without friction
b. How far must the intern push the gurney to do 140 J of work?
2. One species of Darwins finch, Geospiza magnirostris, can exert a force of 205 N with
its beak as it cracks open a Tribulus seed case. If its beak moves through a distance of 0.40 cm during this operation, how much work does the finch do to get the seed?
3. In a gravity escape system (GES), an enclosed lifeboat on a large ship is deployed by
letting it slide down a ramp and then continuing in free fall to the water below. Suppose a 4970 kg lifeboat slides a distance of 5.00 m on a ramp, dropping though a vertical height of 2.50 m. How much work does gravity do on the boat?
4. you want to load a box into the back of a truck. One way is to lift it straight up through
a height h, as shown, doing a work W1. Alternatively, you can slide a box up a loading ramp a distance L, doing work W2. Assuming the box slides on the ramp without friction, which of the following is correct

a. the work done by the boyb. the final speed of the sled after it moves 2.00 m, assuming the sled starts with an
initial speed of 0.500 m/s and slides horizontally without friction
11.To accelerate a certain car from rest to the speed v requires the work W1. The work
needed to accelerate the car from v to 2v is W2. Which of the following is correct
12.The spring in a pinball launcher has a force constant of 405 N/m. How much work is
required to compress the spring a distance of 3.00 cm
13.The work required to deflect a typical AFM cantilever by 0.10 nm is 1.2 E -20 J
a. What is the force constant of the cantilever treating it as an ideal springb. How much work is required to increase the deflection of the cantilever from 0.10
14.Suppose the block which is connected to a spring horizontally has a mass of 1.5 kg
and moves with an initial speed of v0= 2.2 m/s. Find the compression of the spring, whose force constant is 475 N/m, when the block momentarily comes to rest
15.To pass a slow moving truck, you want your fancy 1.30 E3 kg car to accelerate from
13.4 m/s to 17.9 m/s in 3.00 s. What is the minimum power required for this pass?
16.It takes a force of 1280 N to keep a 1500 kg car moving with constant speed up a
slope of 5.00˚. If the engine delivers 50.0 hp to the drive wheels, what is the maximum speed of the car

Clasificación clínica, etiológica, anatómica y fisiopatológica (CEAP) y escalas de gravedad de los trastornos venosos crónicos La necesidad de una clasificación internacional de los trastornos venosos crónicos diolugar a una revisión reciente. Si se le agregan las escalas de gravedad, se convierte enuna herramienta de trabajo en común. La clasificación CEAP consta de cuatroparáme
