Solve: (a) As the package slides, work is done by the frictional force which acts at to the displacement. The normal force is Thus for (b) Work is done by the component of the gravitational force parallel to the displacement. and the work of gravity is: (c) since the normal force is perpendicular to the displacement. (d) The net work done on the package is: 7.9. Set Up: For part (a), use to calculate the work W done by the person in lifting himself against gravity. Divide by 0.20 to account for the fraction of energy used that appears as work. Solve: (a) The person must exert an upward force equal to his weight, so and The energy used is and the number of food calories is thus, (b) The other 80% of the food energy is converted to forms of energy other than mechanical energy, such as the ther- mal energy released by the action of the person’s muscles. 7.10. Set Up: Use to calculate the work done by the gravity force on each object.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
