Chapter 5 Homework 4. An adventurous archaeologist crosses between two rock cliffs by slowly going hand over hand along a rope stretched between the cliffs. He stops to rest at the middle of the rope. The rope will break if the tension in it exceeds 2.50 x 10 4 N, and our hero's mass is 90.0 kg. (a) If the angle is 10.0, find the tension in the rope. = Fx 0 = 2Tsin mg- = T2cos T1cos 0 = T mg2sin = T2cos T1cos = . . 90 0 kg9 8 ms22sin10 = T2 T1 = 2540 nt (b) What is the smallest value the angle can have if the rope is not to break? = 2Tsin mg . = . . 22 50 104 Nsin 90 0 kg9 8 ms2 = . 1 01 5. A picture frame hung against a wall is suspended by two wires attached to its upper corners. If the two wires make the same angle with the vertical, what must this angle be if the tension in each wire is equal to 0.75 of the weight of the frame? (Ignore any friction between the wall and the picture frame.) = . T 0 75W = 2Tcos W ( . ) = 2 0 75 W cos W = . 48 2 7. Certain st reets in San Francisco make an angle of 17.5 with the horizontal.

The cable makes an angle of31.0 above the surface of the ramp, and the ramp itself rises at 25.0 above the horizontal. (a) Draw a free-body diagram for the car. (b) Find the tension in the cable. = Fx max = - . 0 Tcos31 1130 kg9 8 ms2sin25 = T 5460 N (c) How hard does the surface of the ramp push on the car?

A man pushes on a piano with mass 180 kg so that it slides at constant velocity down a ramp that is inclined at 11.0 above the horizontal floor. Neglect any friction acting on the piano. Calculate the magnitude of the force applied by the man if he pushes (a) parallel to the incline = Fx max = - 0 F mgsin = . . .... View Full Document
