P207 - Fall 2007 Solutions Assignment 6 1. Chapter 7, Problem 13 (a) The work done by the forces is Δ x F x + Δ y F y and we know that Δ y = 0 so the forces in the y-direction make no contribution. In the x-direction s F x = | v F 2 | cos θ − | v F 1 | = (9 N) cos 60 5 N = 0 . 5 N Then W = Δ x s F x = ( 3 m)( 0 . 5 N) = 1 . 5 J (b) The work on the trunk is translated into kinetic energy. Δ KE = W = 1 . 5J 2.

F = ma = (1500 kg)(30 m / s) / (8 s) = 5625 N. (c) The acceleration a = V/t = (30 m / s) / (8 s) = 3 . 75 m / s 2 . Since the acceleration is constant, the average velocity over an interval Δ t is given by the average of initial and ±nal velocities for the interval. Initial and ±nal velocities are V i = at i and V f = at f . Then a V A = a t f + t i 2 . During the period 1

(i) 0-2 s, a v A = a 1 2 ( t f + t i ) = (3 . 75 m / s 2 )(1 s) = 3 . 75 m / s a P A = F a v A = (5625 N)(3 . 75 m / s) = 21kW (ii) 2-4 s, a v A = a 1 2 ( t f + t i ) = (3 . 75 m / s 2 )(3 s) = 11 . 25 m / s a P A = F a v A = (5625 N)(11 . 25 m / s) = 63kW (iii) 4-6 s, a v A = a 1 2 ( t f + t i ) = (3 . 75 m / s 2 )(5 s) = 18 . 75 m / s a P A = F a v A = (5625 N)(3 . 75 m / s) = 105kW (iv) 6-8 s, a v A = a 1 2 ( t f + t i ) = (3 . 75 m / s 2 )(7 s) = 26 . 25 m / s a P A = F a v A = (5625 N)(3 . 75 m / s) = 147kW (d) The work done by the engine is W = Pt = 240kJ. If all of that work appears as the kinetic energy of the car, then W = 1 2 mv 2 v = r 2 W m = p 2(240 , 000 J) 1500 kg P 1 2 = 18 m / s 3. (a) The Fea stores enough energy to do the work necessary to achieve a height of 25 cm. W = Fd = mgd = (10 6 kg)(10 m / s 2 )(0 . 25 m) = 2 . 5 × 10 6 J (b) The energy stored in the spring is U = 1 2 kx 2 . Then k = 2 U x 2 = 2(2 . 5 × 10 6 J) (10 4 m) 2 = 500 N / m 4. Chapter 7, Problem 28 Let the applied force F = 80 N, that yields the initial displacement x i = 2cm. The spring constant k = | F/x i | = (80 N) / (0 . 02 m) = 4000N / m. The work done on a spring when changing its displacement from equilibrium from x i to x f = x i + Δ x is W = 1 2 k ( x 2 f x 2 i ) = 1 2 k (( x i + Δ x ) 2 x 2 i ) = 1 2 k x 2 + 2 x i Δ x ) (1) There are two solutions for Δ x . We can do the work on the spring by continuing to compress it beyond the original x i of -2cm. Or we can stretch it in the other 2
direction, allowing it to relax to zero and then compress it in the positive direction. The solutions to Equation 1 are Δ x = 1 2 p 2 x i ± r 4 x 2 i + 8 W/k P = 1 2 ± 2( 0 . 02 m) ± R 4( 0 . 02 m) 2 + 8(4 J) / (4000N / m) ² = (0 . 02 ± 0 . 05) m The fnal position is x f = x i + Δ x = 0 . 02 m + (0 . 02 m ± 0 . 05 m) = ± 0 . 05 m 5.
