Unformatted text preview: Chapter 6 1. An excellent discussion and equation development related to this problem is given in Sample Problem 6-3. We merely quote (and apply) their main result (Eq. 6-13) = = -- tan tan . . 1 1 0 04 2 s 2. The free-body diagram for the player is shown next. N F r is the normal force of the ground on the player, mg r is the force of gravity, and r f is the force of friction. The force of friction is related to the normal force by f = k F N . We use Newtons second law applied to the vertical axis to find the normal force. The vertical component of the acceleration is zero, so we obtain F N mg = 0; thus, F N = mg . Consequently, ( 29 ( 29 2 470 N 79 kg 9.8 m/s 0.61. k N f F = = = 3. We do not consider the possibility that the bureau might tip, and treat this as a purely horizontal motion problem (with the persons push r F in the + x direction). Applying Newtons second law to the x and y axes, we obtain , max s N F f ma F mg- =- = respectively. The second equation yields the normal force F N = mg , whereupon the maximum static friction is found to be (from Eq. 6-1) f mg s s ,max = . Thus, the first equation becomes F mg ma s- = = where we have set a = 0 to be consistent with the fact that the static friction is still (just barely) able to prevent the bureau from moving. 223 CHAPTER 6 (a) With s = 0 45 . and m = 45 kg, the equation above leads to F = 198 N. To bring the bureau into a state of motion, the person should push with any force greater than this value. Rounding to two significant figures, we can therefore say the minimum required push is F = 2.0 10 2 N. (b) Replacing m = 45 kg with m = 28 kg, the reasoning above leads to roughly 2 1.2 10 N F = . 4. To maintain the stones motion, a horizontal force (in the + x direction) is needed that cancels the retarding effect due to kinetic friction. Applying Newtons second to the x and y axes, we obtain k N F f ma F mg- =- = respectively. The second equation yields the normal force F N = mg , so that (using Eq. 6- 2) the kinetic friction becomes f k = k mg . Thus, the first equation becomes F mg ma k- = = where we have set a = 0 to be consistent with the idea that the horizontal velocity of the stone should remain constant. With m = 20 kg and k = 0.80, we find F = 1.6 10 2 N. 5. We denote r F as the horizontal force of the person exerted on the crate (in the + x direction), r f k is the force of kinetic friction (in the x direction), N F is the vertical normal force exerted by the floor (in the + y direction), and mg r is the force of gravity. The magnitude of the force of friction is given by f k = k F N (Eq. 6-2). Applying Newtons second law to the x and y axes, we obtain k N F f ma F mg- =- = respectively....
