(a) From Table 21, we have v v a x 2 2 2 D .

We apply the equation 2 1 2 ( ) x t x v t at , found in Table 21. Since at t = 0 s, x = 0 and 12 m/s v , the equation becomes (in unit of meters) 2 1 2 ( ) 12 x t t at . With 10 m x when 1.0 s t , the acceleration is found to be 2 4.0 m/s a . The fact that a < implies that the bead is decelerating. Thus, the position is described by 2 ( ) 12 2.0 x t t t . Differentiating x with respect to t then yields ( ) 12 4.0 dx v t t dt . Indeed at t =3.0 s, ( 3.0) v t and the bead stops momentarily. The speed at 10 s t is ( 10) 28 m/s v t , and the corresponding kinetic energy is 2 2 2 1 1 (1.8 10 kg)( 28 m/s) 7.1 J. 2 2 K mv  5. We denote the mass of the father as m and his initial speed v i . The initial kinetic energy of the father is K K i 1 2 son and his final kinetic energy (when his speed is v f = v i + 1.0 m/s) is K K f son . We use these relations along with Eq. 71 in our solution. (a) We see from the above that K K i f 1 2 which (with SI units understood) leads to ( ) 2 2 1 1 1 1.0 2 2 2 i i mv m v . The mass cancels and we find a seconddegree equation for v i : 1 2 1 2 2 v v i i . 24 The positive root (from the quadratic formula) yields v i = 2.4 m/s. (b) From the first relation above K K i 1 2 son b g , we have 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 2 mv m v i F H G I K J F H G I K J son 2 and (after canceling m and one factor of 1/2) are led to v v i son = 2 = 4.8 m s....
