Conservation 7.1: From Eq. (7.2),
mgy = (800 kg)(9.80 m/52)(440 m) : 3.45 x 10‘5 J = 3.45 MJ. 7.2: a) For constant speed, the net force is zero, so the required force is the sack’s weight,
(5.00 kg)(9.80 m/s2) = 49 N. b) The lifting force acts in the same direction as the sack’s
motion, so the work is equal to the weight times the distance, (49.00 N)(15.0 m) = 735 J;
this work becomes potential energy. Note that the result is independent of the speed, and
that an extra ﬁgure was kept in part (b) to avoid roundoff error. 7.3: In Eq. (7.7), taking K1 = 0 (as in Example 6.4) and U2 = 0, K2 = U1 + Wother.
Friction does negative work —fy, so K2 = mgy — fy; solving for the speed '02, 2(mg  f); _ 2((200 kg)(9.80 11052) .3 60"N)(3.00 m) _ _ m 7, 55 m/s. 7.4: a) The rope makes an angle of arcsin(§:%WE«) = 30° with the vertical. The needed
horizontal force is then m tan9 z (120 kg)(9.80 m/s2)tan 30° = 679 N, or 6.8 ><102 N
to two ﬁgures. b) In moving the bag, the rope does no work, so the worker does an
amount of work equal to the change in potential energy, (120 kg)(9.80 m/s2)(6.0 m)(1 
cos 30°) 2: 0.95 x 103 J. Note that this is not the product of the result of part (a) and
the horizontal displacement; the force needed to keep the bag in equilibrium varies as the angle is changed. 7.5: a) In the absence of air resistance, Eq. (7.5) is applicable. With yl — y2 = 22.0 m,
solving for 122 gives v2 = 11% + 2g(y2 — y1) = \/(12.0Mm/s)2 + m) = 24.0 m/s. b) The result of part (a), and any application of Eq. (7.5), depends only on the
magnitude of the velocities, not the directions, so the speed is again 24.0 m/s. 0) The
ball thrown upward would be in the air fora longer time and would be slowed more by air resistance. 7.6: a) (Denote the top of the ramp as point 2.) In Eq. (7.7), Kg = 0, Wothe, : —(35 N) x
(2.5 In): —87.5 {Land taking U1 = 0 and U2 = mgyg = (12 kg)(9.80 m/32)(2.5 Insin 30°) = 147 J, 111 = ﬂwﬂiﬁmﬁn m 6.25 m/s, or 6.3 m/s to two ﬁgures. Or, the work done by friction and the change in potential energy are both proportional to the distance the
crate moves up the ramp, and so the initial speed is proportional to the square root of the distance up the ramp; (5.0 m 6.25. m/s.
179 180 Chapter 7 b) In part a), we calculated Wothe, and U2. Using Eq. (7.7), Kg = %(12 kg)(11.0 m/s)2—
87.5 J — 147 J“: 491.5 J 2 491.5 J) _ _ 9.05 m/s. 7.7: As in Example 7.7, K2 = 0, U2 = 94 J, and U3 = 0. The work done by friction is —(35 N)(1.6 m) = —56 J, and so K3 = 38 J, and v3 = ﬂag: = 2.5 m/s. 7.8: The speed is v and the kinetic energy is 4K. The work done by friction is pro
portional to the normal force, and hence the mass, and so each term in Eq. (7.7) is
proportional to the total mass of the crate, and the speed at the bottom is the same for
any mass. The kinetic energy is proportional to the mass, and for the same speed but four
times the mass, the kinetic energy is quadrupled. 7.9: In Eq. (7.7), K1 = 0, Wother is given as —0.22 J, and taking U2 = 0, K2 = ng —
0.22 J, so 0.22 J

'02 0 m/s )(0 50 In) 0.20 kg) 8 m/s 7.10: (a) The ﬂea leaves the ground with an upward velocity of 1.3 m/s and then is in
freefall with acceleration 9.8 m/s2 downward. The maximum height it reaches is therefore
(v3 — vgy)/2(«—g) = 9.0 cm. The distance it travels in the ﬁrst 1.25 ms can be ignored. (b) W = KE 2 $771112

K1 + U1 + Wother = K2 + U2
U1 = 0, U2 = mg(2R) = 28, 224 J, Wother = W;
K1 = ém’uf = 37,500 J, K2 = §mv§ = 3840 J
The workenergy relation then gives Wf = K2 + U2 — K1 = —5400 J. 7.12: Tarzan is lower than his original height by a distance l(cos 30 — cos 45), so his
speed is 'v = \/2gl(cos 30° — cos 45°) = 7.9 m/s, 3. bit quick for conversation. 7.13: a.) The force is applied parallel to the ramp, and hence parallel to the oven's
motion, and so W = F3 = (110 N)(8.0 m) = 880 J. b) Because the applied force ? is
parallel to the ramp, the normal force is just that needed to balance the component of the
weight perpendicular to the ramp, n := '11) cos a, andso the. friction force is fk = pkmg cos a Potential Energy and Energy Conservation 181 and the work done by friction is

again keeping an extra ﬁgure. (1) 880 J — 472 J — 157 J = 251 J. e) In the direction up
the ramp, the net force is F — mg sino: —— grka cosa
= 110 N —— (10.0 kg)(9.80 m/sz)(sin 37° + (0.25) cos 37°)
= 31.46 N, so the acceleration is (31.46 N) / (10.0 kg) = 3.15 m/s2. The speed after moving up the ramp is v : J2EE = ﬁngﬁ m/s2)(8.0 m) = 7.09 m/s, and the kinetic energy is (1/2)mv2 =
252 J. (In the above, numerical results of speciﬁc parts may differ in the third place if
extra ﬁgures are not kept in the intermediate calculations.) 7.14: a) At the top of the swing, when the kinetic energy is zero, the potential energy
(with respect to the bottom of the circlular arc) is mgl(1 — cos 9), where l is the length
of the string and 6 is the angle the string makes with the vertical. At the bottom of the
swing, this potential energy has become kinetic energy, so mgl(1 — cos 6) = émv2, or v = x/Zgl(1— 0036) = «279.80 m/s2)(0.80m)(1W:cosi5°) = 2.1 m/s. b) At 45° from
the vertical, the speed is zero, and there is no radial acceleration; the tension is equal
to the radial component of the weight, or my cost? = (0.12 kg)(9.80 m/s2)cos45° =
0.83 N. c) At the bottom of the circle, the tension is the sum of the weight and the radial acceleration, mg + mug/l = mg(1+ 2(1 «— cos45°)) = 1.86 N, or 1.9 N to two ﬁgures. Note that this method does not use the intermediate calculation
of 'u. 7.15: Of the many ways to ﬁnd energy in a spring in terms of the force and the distance,
one way (which avoids the intermediate calculation of the spring constant) is to note that
the energy is the product of the average force and the distance compressed or extended.
a) (1 / 2)(800 N)(0.200 m) = 80.0 J. b) The potential energy is proportional to the square
of the compression or extension; (80.0 J)(0.050 m/0.200 1n)2 = 5.0 J. 7.16: U = %ky2, where y is the vertical distance the spring is stretched when the weight w = mg is suspended. y = TEE, and k = E, where a: and F are the quantities that “calibrate” the spring.

b) Denote the initial height of the book as h and the maximum compression of the
spring by m. The ﬁnal and initial kinetic energies are zero, and the book is initially a height a: + h above the point where the spring is maximally compressed. Equating initial
and ﬁnal potential energies, @0032 = mg(:c + h). This is a quadratic in :v, the solution to which is

compression of the spring. To two ﬁgures, the compression is 0.12 In. 7.18: a) In going from rest in the slingshot’s pocket to rest at the maximum height, the
potential energy stored in the rubber band is converted to gravitational potential energy;
U = mgy = (10 x 10‘3 kg)(9.80 m/s2)(22.0 m) = 2.16.]. b) Because gravitational potential may is proportional to mass, the larger pebble
rises only 8.8 m. c) The lack of air resistance and no deformation of the rubber band are two possible
assumptions. 7.19: The initial kinetic energy and the kinetic energy of the brick at its greatest height
are both zero. Equating initial and ﬁnal potential energies, £10032 = mgh, where h is the greatest height. Solving for h, 2 2

so U; = 0.0210 J = ékﬁ, so x = i1 / %£I% = :l:0.092 m. In the absence of friction, the
glider will go through the equilibrium position and pass through :1: = —0.092 m with the
same speed, on the opposite side of the equilibrium position. 7.21: a) In this situation, U2 = 0 when m = 0, so K2 = 0.0250 J and 02 = sagging =
0.500 m/s. b) If '02 = 2.50 m/s, K2 = (1/2)(0.200 kg)(2.50 m/a)2 = 0.625 J = U1, so Potential Energy and Energy Conservation 183 $1 = WWEﬁ/j; m 0.500 m. Or, because the speed is 5 times that of part (a), the kinetic energy is 25 times that of part (a), and the initial extension is 5 x 0.100 m = 0.500 m.
7.22: a) The work done by friction is Wo,.,,., s» —,ukmgA;r: = —(0.05)(0.200 kg)(9.80 m/S2)(0.020 m) = —0.00196 J, so K2 = 0.00704. J and v2 = = 0.27 m/s. b) In this case mmer = —0.0098 J, so K2 = 0.0250 J — 0.0098 J = 0.0152 J, and 112 2 JW = 0.39 m/s. c) In this case, K2 = 0, U2 = 0, so U1 + Wothe, = 0 =0.0250 J — 0140.200 kg)
(9.80 m/s2) x (0.100 In), or in, = 0.13.
7.23: a) In this case, K1 = 625,000 J as before, Won,“ = —~17,000 J and U2 = (1/2)ky§ + mgyz

to a speed 02 = 23.6 m/s. b) The elevator is moving down, so the friction force is up
(tending to stop the elevator, which is the idea). The net upward force is then —mg +

is not a coincidence that this is the average to the answers to parts (a) and d) The
work depends on path, and the ﬁeld is not conservative.
7.29: a) When the book moves to the left, the friction force is to the right, and the work is "(1.2 N)(3.0 m) = “3.6 J. b) The friction force is now to the left, and the work is
again —3.6 J. c) —7.2 J. (1) The net work done by friction for the round trip is not zero, and friction is not a conservative force. 7.30: The friction force has magnitude iika = (0.20)(30.0 kg)(9.80 m/s2 = 58.8 N.
a) For each part of the move, friction does —(58.8 N)(10.6 m) = —623 J, so the total work done by friction is —1.2 kN. b) “(58.8 N)(15.0 m) = ~882 N.
0) Potential Energy and Energy Conservation 185 _ The net work done by friction depends on the path, so friction is not a conservative
force. 7.31: The magnitude of the friction force on the book is ‘ [14ka = (0.25)(1.5 kg)(9.80 m/s2) = 3.68 N. a.) The work done during each part of the motion is the same, and the total work
done is —2(3.68 N)(8.0 m) = —59 J (rounding to two places). b) The magnitude of the

c) The work is the same both coming and going, and the total work done is the same
as in part (a), —59 J. (1) The work required to go from one point to another is not
path independent, and the work required for a round trip is not zero, so friction is not a
conservative force. 7.32: a.) — b) —%k(m§ — The total work is zero; the spring force is

minimum; to move it away from h would require an input of energy, so this point is stable.
c) Moving away from point (i involves a decreaso of potential energy, hence an increase in kinetic energy, and the marble tends to move further away, and so d is an unstable point. 7.39: a) At constant speed, the upward force of the three ropes must balance the force,
so the tension in each is. onethird of the man’s weight. The tension in the rope is the force Potential Energy and Energy Conservation 187 he exerts, or (70.0 kg)(9.80 m/s2)/3 = 229 N. b) The man has risen 1.20 In, and so the
increase in his potential energy is (70.0 kg)(9.80 m/sz)(1.20 m) = 823 J. In moving up a
given distance, the total length of the rope between the pulleys and the platform changes
by three times this distance, so the length of rope that passes through the man’s hands is 3 X 1.20 m = 3.60 In, and (229 N)(3.6 m) = 824 J.

7.54: To be at equilibrium at the bottom, with the spring compressed a distance :60, the
spring force must balance the component of the weight down the ramp plus the largest value of the static friction, or k:ch = w sing + f. The workenergy theorem requires that
the energy stored in the spring is equal to the sum of the work done by friction, the work done by gravity and the initial kinetic energy, or 1 1
51033 = (wsinﬂ — f)L + Emvz, where L is the total length traveled down the ramp and v is the speed at the top of the
ramp. With the given parameters, %k:r3 = 248 J and kmo = 1.10 x 103 N. Solving for I:
gives k = 2440 N /m. 7.55: The potential energy has decreased by (12.0 kg)(9.80 m/s2)(2.00 m) — (4.0 kg) x
(9.80 m/s2)(2.00 m) = 156.8 J. The kinetic energy of the masses is then %(m1 + 11%)?)2 = (8.0 kg)v2 = 156.8 J, so the common speed is v = W = 4.43 m/s, or 4.4 m/s to two ﬁgures.
7.56: a) The energy stored may be found directly from 1

at the height h are both zero, so the energy foundin part (a) is equal to the negative
of the work done by gravity and friction, —(mg + f)h = —((2000 kg)(9.80 m/s2) + 192 Chapter 7 17,000 N)h = (36,600 N)h, so h = gggﬁgﬁ = 17.3 In. c) The net work done on
the elevator between the highest point of the rebound and the point where it next reaches
the spring is (mg — f )(h — 3.00 m) = 3.72 x 104 J. Note that on the way down, friction does negative work. The speed of the elevator is then ‘/ m 6.10 m/s. (1)
When the elevator next comes to rest, the total work done by the spring, friction, and
gravity must be the negative of the kinetic energy K3 found in part (c), or K3 = 3.72 x 104 J = —(mg—f)x3 + gag = —(2,600 N)2>3 + (7.03 x 104 N/mng. (In this calculation, the value of A: was recalculated to obtain better precision.) This

noted that different ways of rounding the numbers in the intermediate calculations may
give different answers. 7.57: The two design conditions are expressed algebraically as log == f + my = 3.66 X 104N

This is a very weak spring constant, and would require a space below the operating range
of the elevator about four ﬂoors deep, which is not reasonable. b) At the lowest point, the
spring exerts an upward force of magnitude f + mg. Just before the elevator stops, however,
the friction force is also directed upward, so the net force is (f + mg) + f — mg = 2f, and
the upward acceleration is if = 17.0 m/s2. 7.58: One mass rises while the other falls, so thenet loss of potential energy is
(0.5000 kg — 0.2000 kg)(9.80 m/sﬂ)(0.400 m) = 1.176 J. This is the sum of the kinetic energies of the animals.

causes her to go in a circle, and when she leaves the hill, the normal force vanishes. The
vanishing of the normal force is the condition that determines when she will leave the
hill. As the normal force approaches zero, the neCessary (inward) radial force is the radial
component of gravity, or meal/R = mg cos a, where R is the radius of the snowball. The
speed is found from conservation of energy; at an angle a, she has descended a vertical
distance R(1 — cos a), so §mv2 = ng(1 — cos a), or v2 = 2gR(1 ~— cos (1). Using this in
the previous relation gives 2(1 —cos a) = cos a, or a = arccos(§) = 48.2°. This result does
not depend on the skier’s mass, the radius of the snowball, or g. 7.64: If the speed of the rock at the top is m, then conservation of energy gives the speed 1)., from %m'ug = gmvf + mg(2R), R being the radius of the circle, and so v3 = v? + 49R.

potential energy of the spring. If the block is moved slowly, the kinetic energy can be

When the ﬁsh falls from rest, its gravitational potential energy decreases by mgy; this

= 7.30m/s. b) This does require energy considerations; the combined work done by gravity and
friction is mg(L+d) (sin 6 — pk cos 6), and the potential energy of the spring is %kd2, where
d is the maximum compression of the spring. This is a quadratic in d, which can be written

c) The easy thing to do here is to recognize that the presence of the spring determines d,
but at the end of the motion the spring has no potential energy, and the distance below
the starting point is determined solely by how much energy has been lost to friction. If
the block ends up a distance y below the starting point, then the block has moved a
distance L + all down the incline and L + d — y up the incline. The magnitude of the
friction force is the same in both directions, itka cos 9, and so the work done by friction
is —,u.k(2L + 2d — y)mg cos 8. This must be equal to the change in gravitational potential

u = 2F/ 7.86: a) The slope of the U vs. 3: curve is negative at point A, so F3 is positive
(Eq. (7.17)). b) The slope of the curve at point B is positive, so the force is negative. 0) The
kinetic energy is a maximum when the potential energy is a minimum, and that ﬁgures to
be at around 0.75 m. d) The curve at point C looks pretty close to ﬂat, so the force is zero.
e) The object had zero kinetic energy at point A, and in order to reach a point with more
potential energy than U (A), the kinetic energy would need to be negative. Kinetic energy
is never negative, so the object can never be at any point Where the potential energy is
larger than U On the graph, that looks to be at about 2.2 m. f) The point of minimum
potential (found in part is a stable point, as is the relative minimum near 1.9 m. g) The
only potential maximum, and hence the only point of unstable equilibrium, is at point C. 7.87: a) Eliminating [3' in favor of a and :30 (,6 = a/cco), U(,)=a_ﬁme§s§ea:%[(n)2_(n)]. :1: 33 U($0) = fgﬂ — 1) = 0. U(:I:) is positive for a: < 230 and negative for x > £60 and 16 must

speed (see part (c)), and then slows down, although it never stops. The minus sign in the
square root in the expression for v(a:) indicates that the particle will be found only in the
region where U < 0, that is, a: > :30. c) The maximum speed corresponds to the maximum kinetic energy, and hence the minimum potential energy. This minimum occurs when % = 0, or ﬁnal—aeseﬂa dm 2:0 2: a: C! which has the solution :1: = 23:0. U (2%) = ~Zgg, so 1) = ‘ /W~. d) The maximum speed

The particle is conﬁned to the region where U(:1:) < U(a:1). he maximum speed still occurs at at = 22:0, but now the particle will oscillate between
$1 and some minimum value (see part f) Note that U — U (3:1) can be written as 0: $0 2 $0 2 a {130 1 $0 2 —2 <—) —(—>+~ =—2 (—>w <—>——, 320 a: co 9 9:0 as 3 3: 3

Thus1 when the particle is released from 330, it goes on to inﬁnity, and doesn’t reach any maximum distance. When released from $1, it oscillates between gxo and 3500. ...
