Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A 19 . 1 kg block is dragged over a rough, hor izontal surface by a constant force of 89 . 2 N acting at an angle of 30 . 8 above the horizon tal. The block is displaced 92 . 7 m, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0 . 137. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 19 . 1 kg = 0 . 137 8 9 . 2 N 3 . 8 Find the work done by the force of friction. Correct answer: 1797 . 11 J. Explanation: Consider the force diagram F mg n f k To find the frictional force, F friction = N , we need to find N from vertical force balance. Note that N is in the same direction as the y component of F and opposite the force of gravity. Thus F sin + N = mg so that N = mg F sin . Thus the friction force is ~ F friction = N = ( mg F sin ) . The work done by friction is then W = ~ F friction ~s = f  s  = ( mg f sin ) s x = . 137[(19 . 1 kg)(9 . 8 m / s 2 ) (89 . 2 N) sin30 . 8 ](92 . 7 m) = 1797 . 11 J . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A 2 . 18 kg block is pushed 1 . 69 m up a vertical wall with constant speed by a constant force of magnitude F applied at an angle of 69 . 7 with the horizontal....
