Sheet1 Page 2 While two forces act on it, a particle is to move at the constant velocity = (3.05 m/s) - (-4.40 m/s). One of the forces is 1 = (2.5 3 Answer -2.53i + 6.42j N How To Solve ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Refer to pages: (3.5, 3.6, 5.6) F Net is The sum of the forces ******************************** F (1) + F (2) = F net Newtons 2nd Law ***************** F net = Mass * Acceleration 1) Relize that Acceleration is 0 because velocity is constant. Think about it, if you are moving at a constant speed and direction, your moving, not accelerating. Therfore: F net = Mass * Acceleration F net = Mass * 0 F net = 0 2) F net = F (1) + F (2) If one force is (2.53 N)i + (6.42 N)j Then F (1)(subx) = 2.53 + "unknown" = 0 F (1)(suby) = 6.42 + "unknown" = 0 3) Solve algebraicly Answer -2.53i + 6.42j Newtons ----------------------- Chapter 5, Problem 14 ----------------------- A block with a weight of 8.6 N is at rest on a horizontal surface. A 3.3 N upward force is applied to the block by means of an a t Answer 5.3 N How to solve ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Refer to pages: (5.6, 5.7, 5.8)
