Hood, Charles – Homework 6 – Due: Oct 19 2006, 11:00 pm – Inst: Jan Opyrchal 1 This print-out should have 9 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 oF 1) 10 points A block is pushed upward along a Frictionless inclined plane. m F θ Determine the horizontal Force F on the block which causes it to move upward with a constant velocity. 1. F = mg sin θ 2. F = mg cos θ 3. F = mg cos θ 4. F = mg tan θ correct 5. F = mg cot θ 6. F = mg sin θ Explanation: The block is subject to three Forces: its weight ~ W , the normal Force ~ N oF the surFace, and the external Force ~ F which pushes it to the right. The external Force acts in the hor- izontal direction, the weight acts vertically, and the normal Force acts in the direction nor- mal (perpendicular) to the surFace — leFtward From vertically up by angle θ . Let the x axis point horizontally to the leFt while the y axix points vertically up. In these coordinates, the net Force on the block has components F net x = F - N sin θ, F net y = N cos θ - W. Since the block does not accelerate, both com- ponents must vanish, hence N = W cos θ = mg cos θ and F = N sin θ = mg sin θ cos θ = mg tan θ. keywords: 002 (part 1 oF 1) 10 points The system shown below is released From rest and moves 18 . 3 cm in 1 . 80351 s. The acceleration oF gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 3 kg M What is the value oF the mass M ? Assume all surFaces are Frictionless. Correct answer: 0 . 0348461 kg. Explanation: Given : m = 3 kg , y 0 = 0 m , y = 18 . 3 cm = 0 . 183 m , t 0 = 0 s , and t = 1 . 80351 s . m M a T N mg a T M g ±rom kinematics, we have y - y 0 = v 0 + 1 2 at 2 = 1 2 at 2 a = 2 y t 2
