8.38. Model: Assume the particle model for the book (B) and the coffee cup (C), the models of kinetic and static friction, and the constant-acceleration kinematic equations. Visualize: Solve: (a) Using vv a x x xx 1 2 0 2 10 2 =+ () , 02 2 1 m /s 3.0 m/s 22 = + () ax ⇒= ax 1 4.5 m /s To find x 1 , we must first find a .
