Question

Give your answer in SI units and to three significant figures.

A stick which is 1.52 meters long is leaned against a wall at an angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and the wall and floor is 0.411, determine the furthest distance from the wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without slipping.

Answer #1

Give your answer in SI units and to three significant
figures.
A stick which is 1.56 meters long is leaned against a wall at an
angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and
the wall and floor is 0.310, determine the furthest distance from
the wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without
slipping.

A stick which is 1.88 meters long is leaned against a wall at an
angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and
the wall and floor is 0.436, determine the furthest distance from
the wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without
slipping.

A stick which is 1.89 meters long is leaned against a wall at an
angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and
the wall and floor is 0.5, determine the furthest distance from the
wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without
slipping.

A stick which is 1.42 meters long is leaned against a wall at an
angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and
the wall and floor is 0.646, determine the furthest distance from
the wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without
slipping.

A stick which is 1.84 meters long is leaned against a wall at an
angle. If the coefficient of static friction between the stick and
the wall and floor is 0.629, determine the furthest distance from
the wall that the bottom of the stick may be placed without
slipping.

An archer standing on a 15 degree slope shoots an arrow at an
angle of 21 degrees above the horizontal. How far below its
original point of release does the arrow hit if it is shot with a
speed of 38 m/s from a height of 1.78 m above the ground?

A 7-m long, 17-kg, ladder rests against a smooth vertical wall
with a 20 degree angle from the wall. The coefficient of static
friction between the floor and the ladder is 0.2. What distance,
measured in meter along the ladder from the bottom, can a 75-kg
person climb before the ladder starts to slip?
A spool whose inner core has a radius of 1 cm and whose end caps
have a radius of 1.77 cm has a string tightly wound...

Sally wants to hang up some decorations on the side of her
house, so sheprops up a ladder of length L = 3m against a wall at
an angle of θ= 50° with respect to the horizontal. The ground is
somewhat icy, where the coefficient of static friction between the
ground and the ladder’s feet is μ = 0.55; while the wall of her
house can be considered frictionless. If Sally has a mass of 60kg
and the ladder has...

3-A 1.0 kg block slides down an inclined plane of 39
0 from the horizontal. If the
block starts from rest and hits the bottom in 5.1 s,
what is the speed of the block, in the unit m/s, at the bottom of
the incline? Assume a frictionless plane.
4-A bus negotiates a turn of radius 103 m while traveling at a
speed of 92 km/h. If slipping just begins at this speed, what is
the coefficient of static friction between the...

Two boxes are stacked, with box B placed on top of box A. If box
A is pushed such that both boxes move with a decreasing speed, is
there any friction on either box?
(a) Kinetic friction on box A and no friction on box B (b)
Kinetic friction on box A and static friction on box B
(c) Kinetic friction on box A and kinetic friction on box B (d)
Static friction on box A and kinetic friction on...
