Question

A 10.30-m ladder with a mass of 22.6 kg lies flat on the ground. A painter grabs the top end of the ladder and pulls straight upward with a force of 258 N. At the instant the top of the ladder leaves the ground, the ladder experiences an angular acceleration of 1.66 rad/s2 about an axis passing through the bottom end of the ladder. The ladder's center of gravity lies halfway between the top and bottom ends.

(a) What is the net torque acting on the ladder? N · m

(b) What is the ladder's moment of inertia? kg · m2

A house painter stands 3 m above the ground on a 5 m long later
that leans against the wall at a point 4.7 m above the ground. The
painter weighs 664 N and the ladder weighs 109 N.
Assuming no friction between the house and the upper end of the
ladder, find the force of friction that the driveway exerts on the
bottom of the ladder. If the force of friction is away from the
wall, enter a negative...

A ladder whose length L is 12 m and mass m are 45 kg rests
against a wall. Its upper end is a distance h of 9.3 m above the
ground. The center of mass of the ladder is one-third of the way up
the ladder. A fire fighter whose mass M is 72 kg climbs the ladder
until his center of mass is halfway up. Assume the wall but not the
ground is frictionless. What forces are exerted on...

Suppose a ladder of length L = 8 m and mass m = 20 kg is leaning
up against a wall such that it makes an angle of θ = 70 degree
angle with the floor and is not moving. For this problem, we'll say
there is no one standing on the ladder. As we did at the end of
discussion, we'll also imagine that the ladder is up against a very
smooth wall so that there is no frictional...

A uniform disk with mass m = 9.07 kg and radius R = 1.36 m lies
in the x-y plane and centered at the origin. Three forces act in
the +y-direction on the disk: 1) a force 313 N at the edge of the
disk on the +x-axis, 2) a force 313 N at the edge of the disk on
the –y-axis, and 3) a force 313 N acts at the edge of the disk at
an angle θ =...

A box with 10 kg of mass slides down an inclined plane that is
1.7 m high and 3.5 m long. Due to friction the box reaches 3.0 m/s
at the bottom of the inclined plane. Beyond the inclined plane lies
a spring with 650 N/m constant. It is fixed at its right end. The
level ground between the incline and the spring has no friction
The box compressed the spring, got pushed back towards the
incline by the spring....

A cylindrical rod of length 2.0 m, radius 0.5 m, and mass 1.5 kg
has two spheres attached on its ends. The centers of the spheres
are 1.0 m from the center of the rod. The mass of each sphere is
0.66 kg. The rod is capable of rotating about an axis passing
through its center and perpendicular to the plane of the page, but
the set up is stationary to begin with. A small mass of value 0.19
kgmoving...

A child pushes her friend (m = 25 kg) located at a radius r =
1.5 m on a merry-go-round (rmgr = 2.0 m, Imgr
= 1000 kg*m2) with a constant force F = 90 N applied
tangentially to the edge of the merry-go-round (i.e., the force is
perpendicular to the radius). The merry-go-round resists spinning
with a frictional force of f = 10 N acting at a radius of
1 m and a frictional torque τ = 15 N*m...
