Two blocks connected by a string are pulled across a horizontal surface by a force applied to one of the blocks, as shown below. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the surface is 0.25. If each block has an acceleration of 2.0 m/s 2 to the right, what is the magnitude F of the applied force?

Two blocks, 1.0 kilograms on the left and 3.0 kilograms on the right, are connected by a string and are on a horizontal surface. Force F acts on the 3.0 kilogram mass and points up and to the right at a angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal.

A double-incline plane is shown below. The coefficient of friction on the left surface is 0.30, and on the right surface 0.16. Calculate the acceleration of the system.

Two carts connected by a string passing over a pulley are on either side of a double inclined plane. The string passes over a pulley attached to the top of the double incline. On the left, the incline makes an angle of 37 degrees with the horizontal and the cart on that side has mass 10 kilograms. On the right, the incline makes an angle of 53 degrees with the horizontal and the cart on that side has mass 15 kilograms.

Challenge problems

In a later chapter, you will find that the weight of a particle varies with altitude such that w = m g r 0 2 r 2 where r 0 is the radius of Earth and r is the distance from Earth’s center. If the particle is fired vertically with velocity v 0 from Earth’s surface, determine its velocity as a function of position r . ( Hint: use a d r = v d v , the rearrangement mentioned in the text.)

v = v 0 2 2 g r 0 ( 1 r 0 r )

A large centrifuge, like the one shown below, is used to expose aspiring astronauts to accelerations similar to those experienced in rocket launches and atmospheric reentries. (a) At what angular velocity is the centripetal acceleration 10 g if the rider is 15.0 m from the center of rotation? (b) The rider’s cage hangs on a pivot at the end of the arm, allowing it to swing outward during rotation as shown in the bottom accompanying figure. At what angle θ below the horizontal will the cage hang when the centripetal acceleration is 10 g ? ( Hint: The arm supplies centripetal force and supports the weight of the cage. Draw a free-body diagram of the forces to see what the angle θ should be.)

(a) A photograph of a high g training centrifuge. The astronaut sits in a cage at the end of a long arm that rotates in a horizontal plane. (b) An illustration of a top view of the centrifuge along with an illustration of the forces. The free body diagram shows the weight, w, pointing vertically down and the force F sub arm pointing up and to the left. The forces are then shown rearranged to form a right triangle. F sub arm is the hypotenuse of the triangle pointing up and left, w is the vertical side pointing down, and F sub c is the base pointing to the left. The F sub c arrow is then shown separately with the notation that vector F sub c equals F sub net.

A car of mass 1000.0 kg is traveling along a level road at 100.0 km/h when its brakes are applied. Calculate the stopping distance if the coefficient of kinetic friction of the tires is 0.500. Neglect air resistance. ( Hint: since the distance traveled is of interest rather than the time, x is the desired independent variable and not t . Use the Chain Rule to change the variable: d v d t = d v d x d x d t = v d v d x . )

A skydiver is at an altitude of 1520 m. After 10.0 seconds of free fall, he opens his parachute and finds that the air resistance, F D , is given by the formula F D = b v , where b is a constant and v is the velocity. If b = 0.750 , and the mass of the skydiver is 82.0 kg, first set up differential equations for the velocity and the position, and then find: (a) the speed of the skydiver when the parachute opens, (b) the distance fallen before the parachute opens, (c) the terminal velocity after the parachute opens (find the limiting velocity), and (d) the time the skydiver is in the air after the parachute opens.

a. 53.9 m/s; b. 328 m; c. 4.58 m/s; d. 257 s

Clay Matthews, a linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, can reach a speed of 10.0 m/s. At the start of a play, Matthews runs downfield at 43° with respect to the 50-yard line (the +x-axis) and covers 7.8 m in 1 s. He then runs straight down the field at 90° with respect to the 50-yard line (that is, in the +y-direction) for 17 m, with an elapsed time of 2.9 s. (Express your answers in vector form.)

A projectile is shot at a hill, the base of which is 300 m away. The projectile is shot at 60°60° above the horizontal with an initial speed of 75 m/s. The hill can be approximated by a plane sloped at 20°20° to the horizontal. Relative to the coordinate system shown in the following figure, the equation of this straight line is y=(tan20°)x−109.y=(tan20°)x−109. Where on the hill does the projectile land?
