4: CHAPTER Dynamics: Newtons Laws of Motion Questions 1. 2. Why does a child in a wagon seem to fall backward when you give the wagon a sharp pull forward? A box rests on the (frictionless) bed of a truck. The truck driver starts the truck and accelerates forward. The box immediately starts to slide toward the rear of the truck bed. Discuss the motion of the box, in terms of Newtons laws, as seen (a) by Mary standing on the ground beside the truck, and (b) by Chris who is riding on the truck (Fig. 435). 3. 4. If the acceleration of an object is zero, are no forces acting on it? Explain. Only one force acts on an object. Can the object have zero acceleration? Can it have zero velocity? Explain. 5. When a golf ball is dropped to the pavement, it bounces back up. (a) Is a force needed to make it bounce back up? (b) If so, what exerts the force? 6. 7. 8. If you walk along a log floating on a lake, why does the log move in the opposite direction? Why might your foot hurt if you kick a heavy desk or a wall? When you are running and want to stop quickly, you must decelerate quickly. (a) What is the origin of the force that causes you to stop? (b) Estimate (using your own experience) the maximum rate of deceleration of a person running at top speed to come to rest. 9. A stone hangs by a fine thread from the ceiling, and a section of the same thread dangles from the bottom of the stone (Fig. 436). If a person gives a sharp pull on the dangling thread, where is the thread likely to break: below the stone or above it? What if the person gives a slow and steady pull? Explain your answers. 10. The force of gravity on a 2-kg rock is twice as great as that on a 1-kg rock. Why then doesnt the heavier rock fall faster? 11. Would a spring scale carried to the Moon give accurate results if the scale had been calibrated (a) in pounds, or (b) in kilograms? 2005PearsonEducation,Inc.,UpperSaddleRiver,NJ.Allrightsreserved.Thismaterialisprotectedunderallcopyrightlaws astheycurrentlyexist.Noportionofthismaterialmaybereproduced,inanyformorbyanymeans,withoutpermissioninwriting fromthepublisher. 12. You pull a box with a constant force across a frictionless table using an attached rope held horizontally. If you now pull the rope with the same force at an angle to the horizontal (with the box remaining flat on the table), does the acceleration of the box (a) remain the same, (b) increase, or (c) decrease? Explain. 13. When an object falls freely under the influence of gravity there is a net force mg exerted on it by the Earth. Yet by Newtons third law the object exerts an equal and opposite force on the Earth. Why doesnt the Earth move? 14. Compare the effort (or force) needed to lift a 10-kg object when you are on the Moon with the force needed to lift it on Earth. Compare the force needed to throw a 2-kg object horizontally with a given speed on the Moon and on Earth. 15. According to Newtons third law, each team in a tug of war (Fig. 437) pulls with equal force on the other team. What, then, determines which team will win? 16. A person exerts an upward force of 40 N to hold a bag of groceries. Describe the reaction force (Newtons third law) by stating (a) its magnitude, (b) its direction, (c) on what object it is exerted, and (d) by what object it is exerted. 17. When you stand still on the ground, how large a force does the ground exert on you? Why doesnt this force make you rise up into the air? 18. Whiplash sometimes results from an automobile accident when the victims car is struck violently from the rear. Explain why the head of the victim seems to be thrown backward in this situation. Is it really? 19. A heavy crate rests on the bed of a flatbed truck. When the truck accelerates, the crate remains where it is on the truck, so it, too, accelerates. What force causes the crate to accelerate? 20. A block is given a push so that it slides up a ramp. After the block reaches its highest point, it slides back down but the magnitude of its acceleration is less on the descent than on the ascent. Why? 21. What would your bathroom scale read if you weighed yourself on an inclined plane? Assume the mechanism functions properly, even at an angle. 2005PearsonEducation,Inc.,UpperSaddleRiver,NJ.Allrightsreserved.Thismaterialisprotectedunderallcopyrightlaws astheycurrentlyexist.Noportionofthismaterialmaybereproduced,inanyformorbyanymeans,withoutpermissioninwriting fromthepublisher.

In the design process for a child-restraint chair, an engineer considers the following set of conditions: A 12-kg child is riding in the chair, which is securely fastened to the seat of an automobile (Fig. 461). Assume the automobile is involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle. The initial speed v 0 of the car is 45 km h , and this speed is reduced to zero during the collision time of 0.20 s. Assume a constant car deceleration during the collision and estimate the net horizontal force F that the straps of the restraint chair must exert on the child in order to keep her fixed to the chair. Treat the child as a particle and state any additional assumptions made during your analysis. 81. A 7650-kg helicopter accelerates upward at 0.80 m s 2 while lifting a 1250-kg frame at a construction site, Fig. 462. (a) What is the lift force exerted by the air on the helicopter rotors? (b) What is the tension in the cable (ignore its mass) that connects the frame to the helicopter? (c) What force does the cable exert on the helicopter? 82. A new high-speed 12-car Italian train has a mass of 660 metric tons (660,000 kg). It can exert a maximum force of 400 kN horizontally against the tracks, whereas at maximum velocity ( 300 km h ), it exerts a force of about 150 kN. Calculate (a) its maximum acceleration, and (b) estimate the force of air resistance at top speed. 83. A 65-kg ice skater coasts with no effort for 75 m until she stops. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between her skates and the ice is k = 0.10, how fast was she moving at the start of her coast? 84. Two rock climbers, Bill and Karen, use safety ropes of similar length. Karens rope is more elastic, called a dynamic rope by climbers. Bill has a static rope, not recommended for safety purposes in pro climbing. Karen falls freely about 2.0 m and then the rope stops her over a distance of 1.0 m (Fig. 463). (a) Estimate, assuming that the force is constant, how large a force she will feel from 2005PearsonEducation,Inc.,UpperSaddleRiver,NJ.Allrightsreserved.Thismaterialisprotectedunderallcopyrightlaws astheycurrentlyexist.Noportionofthismaterialmaybereproduced,inanyformorbyanymeans,withoutpermissioninwriting fromthepublisher. the rope. (Express the result in multiples of her weight.) (b) In a similar fall, Bills rope stretches by 30 cm only. How many times his weight will the rope pull on him? Which climber is more likely to be hurt? 85. A fisherman in a boat is using a 10-lb test fishing line. This means that the line can exert a force of 45 N without breaking (1 lb = 4.45 N ). (a) How heavy a fish can the fisherman land if he pulls the fish up vertically at constant speed? (b) If he accelerates the fish upward at 2.0 m s 2 , what maximum weight fish can he land? (c) Is it possible to land a 15-lb trout on 10-lb test line? Why or why not? 86. An elevator in a tall building is allowed to reach a maximum speed of 3.5 m s going down. What must the tension be in the cable to stop this elevator over a distance of 2.6 m if the elevator has a mass of 1300 kg including occupants? 87. Two boxes, m1 = 1.0 kg with a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.10, and m 2 = 2.0 kg with a coefficient of 0.20, are placed on a plane inclined at = 30. (a) What acceleration does each box experience? (b) If a taut string is connected to the boxes (Fig. 464), with m 2 initially farther down the slope, what is the acceleration of each box? (c) If the initial configuration is reversed with m1 starting lower with a taut string, what is the acceleration of each box? 88. A 75.0-kg person stands on a scale in an elevator. What does the scale read (in N and in kg) when the elevator is (a) at rest, (b) ascending at a constant speed of 3.0 m s , (c) falling at 3.0 m s , (d) accelerating upward at 3.0 m s 2 , (e) accelerating downward at 3.0 m s 2 ? 89. Three mountain climbers who are roped together are ascending an ice field inclined at 21.0 to the horizontal. The last climber slips, pulling the second climber off his feet. The first climber is able to hold them both. If each climber has a mass of 75 kg, calculate the tension in each of the two sections of rope between the three climbers. Ignore friction between the ice and the fallen climbers. 2005PearsonEducation,Inc.,UpperSaddleRiver,NJ.Allrightsreserved.Thismaterialisprotectedunderallcopyrightlaws astheycurrentlyexist.Noportionofthismaterialmaybereproduced,inanyformorbyanymeans,withoutpermissioninwriting fromthepublisher. ...
