Question

A sled with mass 15 kg moves in a straight line on a horizontal surface as it is being pulled by a force F at an angle of 30°with the direction of motion. A force of friction of 10 N acts on the sled. At one point in its path, its speed is 4.0 m/s; after it has traveled a distance 5.0 m beyond this point, its speed is 7.0 m/s.

- Use the work-energy theorem to find the total work done on the sled?
- Find the pulling force F on the sled.

Answer #1

The answers are

The physics of
work on an accelerating object.
a) A sled is
dragged along by a 25.0 N force that is applied at an angle of 50.0
degrees above the horizontal. The sled moves to the right and
friction is negligible, so it is constantly accelerated while the
force is being applied. How much work is done after the sled has
moved 2.5 m?
b) Given the motion
of the sled, how must the downward force of gravity on the...

In the winter sport of bobsledding, athletes push their sled
along a horizontal ice surface and then hop on the sled as it
starts to careen down the steeply sloped track. In one event, the
sled reaches a top speed of 9.2 m/s before starting down the
initial part of the track, which is sloped downward at an angle of
4.0 ∘ What is the sled's speed after it has traveled the first 140
m ?

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
the incline, which makes an angle of 19.5° with the horizontal. The
coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.400, and the crate is pulled
4.98 m.
(a) How much work is done by the gravitational force on the
crate?
J
(b) Determine the increase in internal energy of the crate–incline
system owing to friction....

A crate of mass 9.6 kg is pulled up a rough incline with an
initial speed of 1.52 m/s. The pulling force is 104 N parallel to
the incline, which makes an angle of 20.4° with the horizontal. The
coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.400, and the crate is pulled
4.92 m.

Suppose the ski patrol lowers a rescue sled carrying an injured
skiier, with a combined mass of 97.5 kg, down a 60.0° slope at
constant speed. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the
sled and the snow is 0.100.
a) How much work in joules, is done by friction as the sled
moves 3l m along the hill?
b)How much work in joules, is done by the rope on the sled over
this distance ?
c) What is the work...

A box with mass 1.74 kg is being pulled across a rough surface
at a constant speed with a coefficient of kinetic friction
µk = 0.366. The pulling force has a magnitude of 11.2 N
and is directed at an angle 32.8 degrees above horizontal. If the
box is dragged a distance of 10.3 m, what is the total energy lost
to friction? (Hint: be sure to account for the upward component of
the pulling force, and note that the...

Margie’s 15 kg brother Luke sits on a sled. Margie pulls the
sled across the floor using a rope that is angled 20° above the
floor. The tension is a constant 30 N and the coefficient of
friction is 0.20. Use work and energy to find Luke’s speed after
being pulled 3.0 m.

A 2.5-kg object moves across a rough horizontal surface. A force
(F = 6.0 N) acts on the object as shown. The magnitude of the
object’s acceleration is 1.2 m/s2. What is the magnitude of the
force of friction acting on the block? The angle for the diagram is
30 degrees.

A mass m = 12 kg is pulled along a horizontal floor with NO
friction for a distance d =7.2 m. Then the mass is pulled up an
incline that makes an angle θ = 30° with the horizontal and has a
coefficient of kinetic friction μk = 0.49. The entire
time the massless rope used to pull the block is pulled parallel to
the incline at an angle of θ = 30° (thus on the incline it is
parallel...
