## What is the argument in the Gettysburg Address?

Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863 at Gettysburg, PA He was arguing that the war would only end when the institution of human slavery was abolished. He was arguing that the original purpose of the war for many, the restoration of the Union as it existed at the start of 1860, was no longer sufficient.

### What did Lincoln initially argue the Civil War was about?

First Years of the Civil War At the outset of that conflict, Lincoln insisted that the war was not about freeing enslaved people in the South but about preserving the Union.

#### How fast does a cannonball go?

It seems likely to be in between 250 and 100 m/s (250 m/s is about 820 feet per second)….

Why does the cannonball go faster than the cannon?

Most students immediately make the connection that the “forward” momentum of the ball is exactly balanced by the “backward” momentum of the cannon. Although the ball moves at a much higher speed than the cannon, the cannon’s larger mass makes this possible (mV = Mv).

Why does a cannon move backwards when fired?

Conservation of momentum explains why a gun or cannon recoils backwards when it is fired. When a cannon is fired, the cannon ball gains forward momentum and the cannon gains backward momentum. Before the cannon is fired (the ‘event’) the total momentum is zero. This is because neither object is moving.

## How far could a cannon shoot in 1600?

Culverins, with their thick walls, long bores, and heavy powder charges, achieved distance; but second class guns like field “cannon,” with less metal and smaller charges, ranged about 1,600 yards at a maximum, while the effective range was hardly more than 500….

### Why can’t you hit a feather in midair with a force of 200 N?

You can’t hit a feather in midair with a force of 200 N because the feather is not capable of exerting a 200 N force on you. The forces “you hit feather” and “feather hits you” are a Newton’s Third Law action/reaction force pair, so they must always be exactly equal in size.

#### What forces act on you when you jump?

Part II: The Jump Whether you are standing or jumping, the only external forces acting on your body are the normal force from the ground and gravity. How can you jump? Raising your center of mass into the air seems like it would require gravity to diminish or the normal force to grow.

When you walk on the floor what pushes you along?

3. When you walk along a floor, what pushes you? The floor! You push on the floor, and the floor pushes back on you with equal and opposite force.

Why is walking on a wagon dangerous?

(b) When you walk on a wagon, the bottoms of your feet exert a horizontal backward action force on the wagon. According to Newton’s third law, the reaction force is caused by friction when the wagon pushes you to accelerate forward. You may fall off the wagon.
