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.

You pull a your friend along in a sled (combined mass is 65 kg),
by pulling the rope at an upward angle of 20 degrees with respect
to the ground with enough force to keep the sled moving at a
constant velocity of m/s. The coefficient of kinetic friction
between the ground and the sled is 0.15. (a) Draw a force diagram
for the friend/sled system. (b) Once you get to constant velocity,
you pull the sled 15 m. What...

A box with a mass of 7.01 kg is sliding along a horizontal
surface at constant velocity. It is pulled by a horizontal force
and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the box and the
surface is 0.375.
Part (a) What is the work done, in joules, by
the pulling force as the box moves a distance of 0.495 m?
Part (b) What is the work done, in joules, by
the force of friction 33% Part (c) What is the...

A 15-kg sled is being pulled along the horizontal snow-covered
ground by a horizontal force of 27 N. Starting from rest, the sled
attains a speed of 2.1 m/s in 7.5 m.
Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the runners of
the sled and the snow.

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

A box with mass m=5 (kg) is being pulled with force F=25 (N)
horizontally and moves with constant speed. (g = 10 m/s2) a) How
much is the coefficient of kinetic friction? b) How much is the
Normal force excreted from surface to the box? c) If the box moves
10 (m) in 20 seconds, calculate the work done by force F and by
friction. What is the power of Force F?

A child is sitting on a sled and together they have a mass of
25.0 kg. The sled is being pulled by a rope which is angled 15
degrees from the slope. The sled is being pulled at a constant
speed of 1.22 m/s up a 25.0 degrees hill that is 65.0 meters long.
If the coefficient of friction between the sled and the snow is
0.180, what force is being used to pull the sled?
