7.77. Set Up: In part (a), the conservation of energy results in or Similarly, the maximum speed may be calculated in part (b) as Solve: (a) (b) Reflect: The maximum permissible speed calculated in (b) is equivalent to roughly A practical design for a parking garage should be sufficient for speeds up to 7.78. Set Up: Applying in part (a) gives or In part (b), use: Solve: (a) (b) Reflect: Mechanical energy was converted to thermal energy by the negative work done by the air drag force. 7.79. Set Up: Construct a free-body diagram as shown to assess the contributing forces with respect to the path of motion. Note that for circular motion, the velocity vector is always tangent to the circle. Figure 7.79 Solve: (a) (i) The tension force in the string is always perpendicular to the displacement and thus does no work. (a) (ii) Considering a complete cycle, The work of the gravitational force is (b) (i) The tension does no work. (b) (ii) Considering a semi-circular portion of the path, and the work of gravity becomes: Reflect: Gravity does negative work as the ball moves upward and positive work as the ball moves downward.

What students are saying

• 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.
