What is the magnitude of the friction force if the skier travels directly down the hill? Please show work. A. 375 N B. 55.3 N C. 89.4 N D. 50.0 N E. 20.7 N

Answer #1

**Solution**

**Answer: A. 375 N**

A 70 kg skier starts from rest and travels down the irregular
surface of a hill, finally coming to rest at point 2000 meters East
and 550 meters below the starting point. How much work did the
frictional forces of the snow and wind do on the skier?

A 90 kg skier starts from the top of a hill with a 19 deg slope.
The skier reaches the bottom of the slope 11 s later.
a) If there is a constant friction force of 70 N which resists
his motion, how long must be the incline of the hill?
b) Draw a force diagram for the skier with labels and
magnitudes.
c) What is the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block
and ramp?
d) How much work...

A 60.0-kg skier coasts up a snow-covered hill that makes an
angle of 23.5 ° with the horizontal. The initial speed of the skier
is 9.17 m/s. After coasting a distance of 1.45 m up the slope, the
speed of the skier is 3.65 m/s. (a) Find the work
done by the kinetic frictional force that acts on the skis.
(b) What is the magnitude of the kinetic
frictional force?

A 79.0-kg skier starts from rest and slides down a 36.0-m
frictionless slope that is inclined at an angle of 15.0° with the
horizontal. Ignore air resistance.
(a) Calculate the work done by gravity on the skier and the work
done by the normal force on the skier. Work done by gravity? Work
done by normal force?
(b) If the slope is not frictionless so that the skier has a
final velocity of 4 m/s, calculate the work done by...

1. A 85.0-kg speed skier has finished a long down hill race and
reaches a final slope (fig. 1 below) designed to slow her down. At
the bottom of this slope her speed is 29.0 m/s. She slides up the
inclined plane of snow on her skis and at a certain vertical height
h has speed 1.95 m/s. The force of friction between her skis and
the snow does work of magnitude 3995.0 J . (Ignore air friction.)
(a) What...

An object of mass m = 20.0 kg travels distance
d = 60.0 m at constant speed on a rough horizontal surface
(μk = 0.45). The force (a pull, not a push)
applied to the object makes an angle θ = 30.0∘with the
horizontal. Calculate:
A:The magnitude of the applied force?
B:The work done by the applied force?
C:The work done by the force of friction?

A 55.8 kg person skis down a 10 m tall hill. They start from
rest at the top of the hill, but friction and air resistance both
affect the skiers motion. If friction and air resistance have the
effect of dissipating 1,027 J of energy away from the skier over
the entire length of the hill, how fast are they traveling when
they reach the bottom? Report your answer in meters per second,
rounded to one decimal place

A student of mass 65.4 kg, starting at rest, slides down a slide
18.2 m long, tilted at an angle of 32.1° with respect to the
horizontal. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the
student and the slide is 0.133, find the force of kinetic friction,
the acceleration, and the speed she is traveling when she reaches
the bottom of the slide. (Enter the magnitudes.)

A 5.0 kg box slides down a 5.0 m high frictionless hill,
starting from rest, across a 2.0 m wide horizontal surface, then
hits a horizontal spring with spring constant 500 N/m. The ground
under the spring is frictionless, but the 2.0 m wide horizontal
surface is rough with a coefficient of kinetic friction of
0.25.
a. What is the speed of the box just before reaching the rough
surface?
b. What is the speed of the box just before...

A 4.00 kg block is released from rest on a ramp that is inclined
at an angle of 60.0∘ below the horizontal. The initial position of
the block is a vertical distance of 2.00 m above the bottom of the
ramp.
Part A) If the speed of the block is 5.00 m/s when it reaches
the bottom of the ramp, what was the work done on it by the
friction force?: ANS: -28.4J
Part B) If the angle of the...
