How do you find velocity when given the time and mass?

You can't. The mass is irrelevant to velocity. You need the distance.

How to find potential energy when only mass and velocity time is given?

To get the potential energy when only the mass and velocity time has been given, simply multiply mass and the velocity time given.

How do you calculate power when given speed acceleration weight and distance?

Power is equal to Force times velocity; P=Fv. You are given the 'speed', which I assume to be velocity. You also have acceleration. In order to find F, you need first to find the mass, which you can calculate from the weight, Fg, by dividing by the acceleration due to gravity, 9.8. You then have the mass. From here, multiply mass times acceleration times the velocity.

How do you find tangential velocity?

Tangential velocity is equal to (mass x velocity^2)/radial distance

How can you find force when mass and velocity are given?

You cannot. Force = Mass*Acceleration or Mass*Rate of change of Velocity.

How do you find mass if you are given the momentum and the speed?

momentum = mass x velocity => mass = momentum / velocity

How do you find the distance traveled given mass speed and acceleration?

First note the following formulaes Velocity= Distance/Time.............................................1 Acceleration= Change in velocity/Time..........................2 Therefore say if V2 and V1 is given the difference between them is the change in velocity if not then consider the value of speed as change in velocity Now find the Time from second equation = V(speed)/A(accel)..............3 Make eq 1 as Distance =Velocity*Time Since you have the value of velocity and Time substitute and get the value of Distance travelled Please note that the referred problem is independent of mass

How do you find momentum with mass and time?

In Newtonian mechanics using momentum, p, mass, m, and velocity, v, p=m*v. You will need mass and velocity to find momentum, generally. To find velocity you can know time and distance, v=d/t.

How do you find acceleration when given only mass and velocity?

You can't. Acceleration is change in velocity. If given a constant velocity, the acceleration is zero.

How can i find velocity when given force and time?

If you have the mass, you can find the acceleration from Newton's Second Law, a=F/m where a is the acceleration, m is the mass, and F is the force. Then the velocity is given by the standard formula v=vo+at where v is the final velocity, vo the velocity at t=0, probably 0 in your case. If so v=at.

How does mass affect the distance of a canapulted object?

Catapult and not canapult. Any way for a given energy as mass of the object increases then distance would get decreased as velocity gets reduced.

How can find impulse with mass and velocity given?

Impluse = m x v

How do you find height if velocity and mass are given?

1/2mv^2 = mgh

If a body of unknown mass orbits a body of mass 5 kg at a distance d of 2 m what is the velocity of the orbiting body?

To calculate the velocity we would have to know the mass of the first object because we need it to find the force of gravity between the two bodies to then find out the net distance and time.

How do you find mass if you given velocity?

That's not enough information. You need some additional information to calculate the mass.

How do you find mass given work and distance?

That's not enough information. distance x force = work, but mass is unrelated.

How do you find the kinetic energy of something if only the velocity is given?

You can't. You also have to know the mass, or have a way to find it.

How do you find final velocity given height and mass?

the final velocity assuming that the mass is falling and that air resistance can be ignored but it is acceleration not mass that is important (can be gravity) final velocity is = ( (starting velocity)2 x 2 x acceleration x height )0.5

How do you find final velocity and acceleration given only mass distance and time?

Assuming you start from rest (0) and accelerate uniformly. > acceleration = distance / (0.5 * time2), then having found acceleration: > final velocity = acceleration * time

How do you calculate force when mass and velocity are given?

Force equals the mass times the rate of change of the velocity.

How do you find the mass if you have the momentum?

Momentum alone cannot find the mass of an object as momentum is given by p = mv. To find mass m = p/v , velocity is also required.

Does a moving object's distance depend on the object's mass and velocity?

The distance doesn't depend on the mass.

What would be the initial velocity of a vehicle whose mass is 8000GK and final velocity is 0M'S after travelling a distance of 3M befora coming to a halt?

You can't tell that from the information given.Plus ... the answer doesn't depend on the vehicle's mass. In principle, a battleship and a bicycletraveling at the same speed can come to a halt in the same distance. The difference is: how muchforce it takes to stop them in a given distance. (It takes more force to stop the battleship.)In the given question, if we knew the car's initial velocity, we could calculate the force requiredto stop it in 3 meters. And if we knew the force that stopped it in 3 meters, we could find theinitial velocity. But neither number is given, so all we can do as we read the question is say"that's nice", and go on to the next question.

How do you find velocity with mass and momentum?

momentum = mass X velocity

How does mass affect the maximum velocity?

Mass by itself has no effect on velocity. In terminal velocity (velocity of an object falling through a fluid) the mass tovolume ratio (density) can change the final velocity at any given medium density, but in acceleration in a vacuum there is no impact from mass on velocity.
