Do Mudflows move in one large mass?
yes, most mudflows do move in one large mass but they usually only occur on gentle slopes.
Mass movement (also known as mass wasting) can be any of several types of motions : creep (objects lean downhill over many years) slump (rock and soil slip down a hill in one large mass) slides (landslides : rock and soil slide downhill) flows (mudslides and mudflows: rock and soil mixed with water slides downhill) topples (rock pivots off a slope) falls (rock separates and falls without flowing)
The volcanic mudflows that occur at stratovolcanoes are known as Lahars. These flows can travel up to sixty miles per hour and have a consistency of wet cement. These flows destroy everything in their path and can travel up to a hundred miles down the valleys from a voclano. These mudflows can occur for many reasons, and it is not required for a volcano to erupt to produce one of these flows. Flank collapse from…
Mass movement (also known as mass wasting) can be any of four types of motions : creep (objects lean downhill over many years) slump (rock and soil slip down a hill in one large mass) slides (landslides : rock and soil slide downhill) flows (mudslides and mudflows: rock and soil mixed with water slides downhill) Under some definitions, there are two other types, which do not involve "flows" of material. They are : topples (rock…
No. A toothpick and a tiny stone both have small mass, but one floats and the other sinks. A passenger ferry and a large boulder both have large mass, but one floats and the other sinks. It's not the mass that determines whether the object will float. It's the ratio of its mass to its volume ... the number known as the object's "density".
How is it possible for an object with a large mass acted on by a large gravitational force to have the same acceleration as an object with a small mass acted on by a small gravitational force?
Because the large mass NEEDS more force on it in order to get the same acceleration, and the small mass NEEDS less force on it in order to get the same acceleration. Since the large one HAS more force on it and the small one HAS less force on it, the end result is that EVERY mass gets the same acceleration as long as they're all on the same planet.
When the mass of one object is considerably Less than the mass of another object is the action-reaction force not noticeable?
If a golf ball and a bowling ball are moving and both have the same kinetic energy which one is moving faster?
Half or twice as long, depending on which direction you move. Stops are like octaves in music. One stop is twice as large as the preceding one. So five stops represents 32 times (32x) as large, for example. One stop means twice as large (in one direction) or half as large (in the other direction). Moving the speed up one stop makes the shutter stay open half as long as it did before the move.
All particles that move slower than the speed of light have a "rest mass" or "invariant mass" - and that means, almost all particles. One of the few particles that does NOT have a rest mass is the photon, since it moves at the speed of light. It does have energy, and therefore (by mass-energy equivalence) it also has mass, but this is not "rest mass" and is often not counted as mass.
If we start with the expression F = m * a Force equals mass times acceleration Then if the force is unchanged and the mass increases the acceleration must diminish and conversely if the mass decreases the acceleration increases. It is quicker to get an empty wheelbarrow to move 3 meters in one second than a wheelbarrow full of bricks to move that same speed.
