Answer #1

Say you push on a 5 kg block with a force of
Fa = 20 N, at a 45° angle downward. The
coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the ground is
?k = 0.3. The coefficient of static friction is unknown,
but it is known that ?s > 0.3. The block is moving
with initial velocity to the right (the +x direction),
v0 = 2 m/s.
a) What is the magnitude of the force of friction on the...

In this example we will calculate the coefficients of static and
kinetic friction using two equations along with Newton’s second law
of motion. Suppose that a delivery company has just unloaded a 500
N crate full of home exercise equipment in your level driveway. You
find that to get it started moving toward your garage, you have to
pull with a horizontal force of magnitude 230 N. Once the crate
“breaks loose” and starts to move, you can keep it...

1) A net torque always produces a(n) a) force b)angular
acceleration c) linear acceleration d) centripetal acceleration
2)Internal energy is due to a) the motion of atoms. b) the
potential energy associated with the relative positions of the
atoms. c) both. d) neither.
3)What are the proper units for impulse? a) kg m / s2 b) kg m /
s c) N s2 d) N m / s
4) The speed of a rolling object at the bottom of a...

1. For a huge luxury liner to move with constant velocity, its
engines need to supply a forward thrust of
6.75 105 N. What is the magnitude of the
resistive force exerted by the water (in N) on the cruise ship?

You are helping your friend move a new refrigerator into his
kitchen. You apply a horizontal force of 272 N in the negative
x direction to try and move the 62 kg refrigerator. The
coefficient of static friction is...

You probably think of wet surfaces as being slippery.
Surprisingly, the opposite is true for human skin, as you can
demonstrate by sliding a dry versus a slightly damp fingertip along
a smooth surface such as a desktop. Researchers have found that the
static coefficient of friction between dry skin and steel is 0.27,
while that between damp skin and steel can be as high as 1.4.
Suppose a man holds a steel rod vertically in his hand, exerting a...

17. Action-reaction forces in third Newton’s law:
a. Always act on the same object.
b. Sometimes act of the same object.
c. Always act on different objects.
d. May or may not be antiparallel to each other.
18. If force exerted by horse on a cart is equal and opposite to
the force exerted by cart on a horse, how does horse manage to move
a cart?
a. Horse has bigger mass than a cart.
b. Horse still exerts greater...

1. A box is at rest on a flat table. Which of the following is
true?
a. The normal force and the gravitational force are equal in
magnitude and opposite in direction.
b. The magnitude of normal force depends on the coefficient of
static friction between the book and the table.
c. Gravity exerts a force on the box that depends on how big the
normal or support force is.
d. The normal force and the gravitational force are an...

1. An eagle was sitting on a tree limb 19.5 m above
the water spots where a fish is swimming near the surface. Then it
starts from the branch and descends toward the water. By adjusting
its body in flight, the eagle maintains a constant initial velocity
of 3.10 m/s at an angle 20˚ below the horizontal. (a) How long does
it take for the eagle to reach the water? (b) How far has the eagle
traveled in the horizontal...

2. A father tries to pick up his son who weighs 60N. He applies
an upward force of 40N on the boy. Which statement best describes
the force experienced by the father from the boy? A. It is greater
than 40 N
B. It is equal to 40 N
C. It is less than 40 N
D. The boy does not exert a force on the father
3. You push an 11 kg box to the right with a 33...

A spool of thread has rolled under the bed! Fortunately, you get
the free end of it
thread. The moment of inertia of a homogeneous, full cylinder
about
Its axis of symmetry is: ? = (1/2) ?? ^ 2. The moment of inertia of
the whole spin about the axis of rotation is: ???? = 15?? ^ 2. The
friction between the reel and the floor is ?? = 0.25
(static) and ?? = 0.2 (dynamic).
You start pulling the thread...
