Unformatted text preview: 3) (15 points) Shooting at a fallen branch. A boy decides to test his new slingshot by picking up a rock with a mass of 0.1 kg and
shooting it at a 0.4 kg piece of a fallen tree branch sitting on a frozen pond. Assume that
the branch can slide on the ice without experiencing any frictional forces. a) If the rock is traveling at 10 mfs horizontally just before it hits the branch, how fast
will the combined branch and rock move if the rock gets stuck in the branch upon
impact? 1)) Suppose that the rock broke through a hole in the branch such that after the collision
the rock was moving slower—but in the same direction—as it was just before impact.
Assuming that no pieces of wood broke free from the branch, will the branch 1) not
move? 2) move in the same direction as the rock? or 3) move in the opposite direction as the rock? Please explain your answer. 3) Crane (20 points) In class, We analyzed a "crane" shown at the left. The left
end of the beam is held up by a cable with tension T. The
right end is attached with a frictionless pivoL The mass of
the beam is M, . and can't be ignored. It acts at the center of
the beam. There is an additional mass M: hanging from the
end of the crane. a) Find the tension T in the cable in terms of known quantities b) Find the vertical and horizontal components of the force exerted on the pivot by the
beam. Make sure that the direction of each component is clear! c) Assume the cable suddenly breaks. At the next moment. what is the angular
acceleration of the beam about the pivot? Make sure the direction andfor sign is
