Question

A construction worker pushes on a 10 kg crate down an inclined plane that is 7.0 m long and is inclined at an angle of 20 degrees to the horizontal. As a result, the crate slides down the entire length of the plane with a constant speed of 3.0 m/s. Suppose that the worker pushes directly on the crate in a direction parallel to the incline with a force of 50 N for the entire length of the plane. A) What is the work done by the external force of the construction worker? B) What is the work done by kinetic friction? C) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction?

Answer #1

Part A)

External force = 50 N in the direction of motion , SO workdone by it = F * d= 50 * 7 = 350 J

**Workdone =350 J**

Part B)

Workdone by kinetic friction:

First if object is coming with velocity 3 m/s , So kinetic
energy = 1/2 mv^{2} = 35 J .[v is due to friction]

Energy without friction = F * d = mgsin * 7 = 10 *9.8 * sin 20 * 7 = 234.619 .

SO energy Loss due to friction = 234.619 - 35 j=199.6 19 J

**So Workdone by Kinetic frictin = 199.6 19 J**

**Part C)**

So Friction force = 199.617 = 28.517 N

As we know that Friction Force = R = mg cos

So cofficient of kinetic friction = F/mgcos
= 28.517 /(10 *
9.8 * cos 20) = **0.30**

A worker pushes a 27.0kg crate a distance 9.50m along a level
floor at constant speed by exerting a pushing force on the crate
which is directed 35.0◦ below the horizontal. The coefficient of
kinetic friction is 0.230. (a) How much work did the worker do on
the crate? Now the worker pushes the same crate up a 35.0◦ incline
at constant speed, with the same kinetic friction coefficient. This
time the worker pushes horizontally on the crate. Over the...

The 50-kg crate is resting on an inclined plane 15 deg. with
respect to the horizontal. The coefficient of static friction is
0.2 and coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.15. If a force P,
acting upward and parallel to the inclined plane is applied to the
crate, determine the resulting acceleration of the crate if
P=150N.

A 47.75 kg crate slides down a 53.13* slope (inclined plane)
that is 36.00 m in length and has a kinetic friction coefficient of
0.444. The create is given a downward speed of only 4.5
m/s as it starts down from the top of the slope. Applying the
principle of the conservation of mechanical energy in the presence
of dissipative forces, determine its final speed as it reaches the
bottom of the slope.

A crate of mass 9.6 kg is pulled up a rough incline with an
initial speed of 1.40 m/s. The pulling force is 98 N parallel to

A box with 10 kg of mass slides down an inclined plane that is
1.7 m high and 3.5 m long. Due to friction the box reaches 3.0 m/s
at the bottom of the inclined plane. Beyond the inclined plane lies
a spring with 650 N/m constant. It is fixed at its right end. The
level ground between the incline and the spring has no friction
The box compressed the spring, got pushed back towards the
