Problem Sets 3 & 4

Attached below are two additional problem sets that may be submitted by the end of the semester. One of those problem sets is additional challenge problems on Kinetic and Potential energy. The other is on density and pressure.

Please make sure you are showing your work (use of pictures, knowns and unknowns, etc), using the correct units and boxing in answers to make it easy to follow.
