Question

The speed of a block (weight= 10N) sliding across a horizontal ice surface decreases at the rate of 1.5 m/s^2 . whats The coefficient of kinetic friction between the ice amd the block?

Answer #1

By force balance on block in horizontal direction,

Fnet = m*a

Fr = m*a

here, Fr = friction force on block = -*N (As, friction force acts in opposite direction of motion.)

N = normal force = m*g

a = acceleration of block = -1.5 m/s^2

So,

-*N = m*a

-*m*g = m*a

= -a/g = -(-1.5)/9.81

**
= 0.153 =** coefficient of kinetic friction between the ice
amd the block

A 41.9-kg block of ice at 0 °C is sliding on a horizontal
surface. The initial speed of the ice is 8.83 m/s and the final
speed is 3.69 m/s. Assume that the part of the block that melts has
a very small mass and that all the heat generated by kinetic
friction goes into the block of ice, and determine the mass of ice
that melts into water at 0 °C.

A 48.5-kg block of ice at 0 °C is sliding on a horizontal
surface. The initial speed of the ice is 8.24 m/s and the final
speed is 4.08 m/s. Assume that the part of the block that melts has
a very small mass and that all the heat generated by kinetic
friction goes into the block of ice, and determine the mass of ice
that melts into water at 0 °C.

A 500 g block, sliding on horizontal surface, collides head-on,
and sticks to, a 200 g block at rest. A) Find the speed of the
combination after the collision if the 500 g block was was moving

friction between the blocks and the floor is 0.315, how much
further with the blocks go before stopping?

A 2.00 kg block sliding on a horizontal surface makes contact
with a spring, compressing
the spring (the other end of the spring is attached to a rigid
wall). At the instant of
contact, the block has a speed of 12.0 m/s. The coefficients
of static and kinetic friction
between the block and the surface are 0.55 and 0.35,
respectively. The spring constant of
the spring is 100.0 N/m.
