Each sphere has a mass M and radius r . Given: r 200 mm M 10 kg G 66.73 10 12 u m 3 kg s 2 nN 1 10 9 u N Solution: F G M 2 2 r ( ) 2 F 41.7 nN Problem 132 By using an inclined plane to retard the motion of a falling object, and thus make the observations more accurate, Galileo was able to determine experimentally that the distance through which an object moves in free fall is proportional to the square of the time for travel. Show that this is the case, i.e., s v t 2 by determining the time t B , t C , and t D needed for a block of mass m to slide from rest at A to points B, C , and D , respectively. Neglect the effects of friction. Given: s B 2 m s C 4 m s D 9 m T 20 deg g 9.81 m s 2 Solution: W sin T + , W g a a g sin T + , a 3.355 m s 2 s 1 2 a t 2 t B 2 s B a t B 1.09 s 145 Engineering Mechanics  Dynamics Chapter 13 t C 2 s C a t C 1.54 s t D 2 s D a t D 2.32 s Problem 133 A bar B of mass M 1 , originally at rest, is being towed over a series of small rollers. Determine the force in the cable at time t if the motor M is drawing in the cable for a short time at a rate v = kt 2 . How far does the bar move in time t ? Neglect the mass of the cable, pulley, and the rollers.

Determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between the road and the crate if the crate slides a distance d on the ground with no tumbling along the road before coming to rest. Assume that the initial speed of the crate along the road is v . 146 Engineering Mechanics  Dynamics Chapter 13 Given: M 60 kg d 45 m v 80 km hr g 9.81 m s 2 Solution: N C M g N C M g P k N C M a a P k g v 2 2 a d P k g d P k v 2 2 g d P k 0.559 Problem 135 The crane lifts a bin of mass M with an initial acceleration a . Determine the force in each of the supporting cables due to this motion. Given: M 700 kg b 3 kN 10 3 N a 3 m s 2 c 4 Solution: 2 T c b 2 c 2 . M g M a T M a g .

The tractive force on the truck is F . Determine the initial acceleration of the truck. What is the acceleration of the truck if the coupling at C suddenly fails? The car wheels are free to roll. Neglect the mass of the wheels....
