Please take the time to read our FAQ. While we are willing to help new comers we do not work individual problems for you, instead we want to direct you to understanding the underling concepts--not the least because such answer will also be useful to future visitors to our site. – dmckee Sep 30 '12 at 2:09
This (homework problem) would be a problem better suited for your physics teacher. If you are having problems in your physics course: talk to the teacher! – Keegan McCarthy Sep 30 '12 at 4:12
