What Temperature Are Fahrenheit and Kelvin Equal?

What temperature are Fahrenheit and Kelvin equal to each other? This question is similar to the popular homework question “When does Celsius equal Fahrenheit?” where the two different temperature scales read the same value. This example problem not only gives you the answer, it shows step by step, how to […]

At what temperature does both Fahrenheit and Kelvin thermometers read the same value?

Rollercoaster Diagram for Conservation of Energy Example Problem

Potential And Kinetic Energy Example Problem – Work and Energy Examples

Potential energy is energy attributed to an object by virtue of its position. When the position is changed, the total energy remains unchanged but is converted to a different type of energy, like kinetic energy. The frictionless roller coaster is a classic potential and kinetic energy example problem. The roller […]


Inelastic Collision Example Problem – Physics Homework Help

A collision is considered an inelastic collision when kinetic energy is lost during the collision. This inelastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocity of a system and the amount of energy lost from the collision. Inelastic Collision Example Problem Question: A 3000 kg truck travelling […]

Elastic Collision Example Problem – Physics Example Problems 2

Elastic collisions are collisions between objects where both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. This elastic collision example problem will show how to find the final velocities of two bodies after an elastic collision. This illustration shows a generic elastic collision between two masses A and B. The variables involved […]
