Question

Consider Joule's apparatus shown below. The mass of each of the two blocks is 3.50 kg, and the insulated tank is filled with 190 g of water. What is the increase in the water's temperature after the blocks fall through a distance of 1.50 m?

Answer #1

Two blocks with masses m1 = 1.10 kg and m2 = 3.50 kg are
connected by a massless string. They are released from rest. The
coefficent of kinetic friction between the upper block and the
surface is 0.440. Assume that the pulley has a negligible mass and
is frictionless, and calculate the speed of the blocks after they
have moved a distance 68.0 cm.

Two blocks of masses
m1 = 1.50 kg
and
m2 = 3.00 kg
are each released from rest at a height of
h = 4.40 m
on a frictionless track, as shown in the figure below, and
undergo an elastic head-on collision. (Let the positive direction
point to the right. Indicate the direction with the sign of your
answer.)
(a) Determine the velocity of each block just before the
collision.
(b) Determine the velocity of each block immediately after the...

Consider the following two blocks A and B with the mass of
ma= 7 kg and mb = 4 kg.
They are moving in the same direction along the x-axis on a
horizontal frictionless surface with initial velocities
vai= 30 m/s and vbi= 20
m/s. The two blocks collide head-on and there is no change in the
line of motion of either object. If the collision is elastic, find
the final velocity of block A.

Two blocks of mass m1 = 9.20 kg and m2 are connected by a light
string. When a horizontal force F = 105 N is applied to m1 as shown
in the figure below, the acceleration of the system is 3.20 m/s2
towards the left and the tension in the string connecting the two
blocks is 62.0 N. The blocks are moving on a rough surface with an
unknown coefficient of kinetic friction. Determine the coefficient
of kinetic friction between...

Two blocks, each of mass m = 6.00 kg , are connected by
a massless rope and start sliding down a slope of incline
θ = 36.0 ∘ at t=0.000 s. The slope's top portion
is a rough surface whose coefficient of kinetic friction is
μk = 0.300. At a distance d = 1.90 m from block
A's initial position the slope becomes frictionless. What
is the velocity of the blocks when block A reaches this
frictional transition point? Assume...

Consider that you have two blocks and they are connected to each
other with a spring. Block A has mass 1.00 kg, and block B has mass
3.00 kg. The blocks are compressed with a spring S between them;
then the system is released from rest on a level, frictionless
surface. The spring, which has negligible mass, is not fastened to
either block and drops to the surface after it has expanded. The
spring has force constant 723 N/m and...

Two blocks of masses m1 = 1.95 kg and m2 = 3.90 kg are each
released from rest at a height of h = 6.00 m on a frictionless
track, as shown in the figure below, and undergo an elastic head-on
collision. (Let the positive direction point to the right. Indicate
the direction with the sign of your answer.) Two blocks are on a
curved ramp similar in shape to a half-pipe. There is a flat
horizontal surface with opposite...

The pulley shown below has a mass of 3.00 kg and radius R = 60.0
cm, and can be treated as a uniform solid disk that can rotate
about its center. The block (which has a mass of m = 900 g) hanging
from the string wrapped around the pulley is then released from
rest. Use g = 10 m/s2. When the block has dropped through a
distance of 2.00 m, what is the block's speed?

The two blocks shown are hung by a light string that does not
stretch or slip against the massive pulley. The blocks have mass of
3.0 kg and 5.7 kg, and the pulley has a radius of r = 0.26 m and a
mass of m = 12.91 kg . By the time the 5.7 kg mass has fallen 1.52
m starting from rest, find the speed of each block. (Assume the
pulley is in the shape of a uniform...

Two blocks of mass m1 = 2 kg and m2 = 1 kg are suspended over a
pulley of mass M with a string of neglible mass. The pulley is a
solid cylinder of radius R = 4 cm. The string does not slip on the
pulley, which is a solid cylinder. The magnitude of downward
accleration of mass m1 is measured to be a = g/4.
A) Write down Newton's second law for m1, m2, and M using the...
