Solution for On-Line Homework 17 Motion in a Plane II Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 17.1() Problem: Someone gives a block sitting on an incline a nudge, and it starts sliding down the incline. What type of friction exists between the sliding block and the surface of the incline? Select One of the Following: (a-Answer) kinetic (b) static (c) tangential (d) normal (e) Toby Solution The friction between two objects moving relative to each other while still in contact is kinetic friction. Total Points for Problem: 1 Points Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 17.2() Problem: You throw a ball in a high arc to get it over the defenders, to your waiting team mate. You can neglect air resistance, and the ceiling is really high. At the highest point in the ball’s flight: 1

Unformatted text preview: (d) velocity is non-zero and acceleration is zero. (e) Toby Solution In general, two-dimensional, frictionless projectile motion has both horizontal and vertical components (and if there isn’t any “cross-wind”, we can turn three-dimensional mo-tion into two-dimensional motion by choosing our coor-dinate system appropriately). Gravity acts in the vertical direction only, so the horizontal component of the initial velocity is una±ected by gravity ( v x ( t ) = v ,x n = zero ). The vertical motion is uniformly accelerated (the acceler-ation due to gravity is always present), and so is quadratic in time. And so x ( t ) = x + v ,x t and y ( t ) = y + v ,y t − 1 2 gt 2 and the vector position function is V r ( t ) = p x ( t ) y ( t ) P 2 The x-y graph of this function (parameterized by t ) is a parabola.

    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.
