Unformatted text preview: 2-1 CHAPTER 2 The correspondence between the problem set in this fifth edition versus the problem set in the 4'th edition text. Problems that are new are marked new and those that are only slightly altered are marked as modified (mod). New Old New Old New Old 1 4 mod 21 13 41E 33E mod 2 new 22 14 42E 34E mod 3 new 23 15 43E 35E 4 7 mod 24 17 44E 36E 5 2 mod 25 18 45E 37E 6 new 26 new 46E 38E 7 new 27 19 47E 39E 8 new 28 20 48E 40E 9 5 mod 29 21 49E 41E 10 6 30 22 11 8 mod 31 23 12 new 32 24 13 9 mod 33 new 14 10 mod 34 25 mod 15 11 35 26 mod 16 new 36 27 mod 17 new 37 28 18 16 mod 38 29 19 new 39E 31E mod 20 12 40E 32E 2-2 2.1 The “standard” acceleration (at sea level and 45 ° latitude) due to gravity is 9.80665 m/s 2 . What is the force needed to hold a mass of 2 kg at rest in this gravitational field ? How much mass can a force of 1 N support ? Solution: ma = 0 = ∑ F = F - mg F = mg = 2 × 9.80665 = 19.613 N F = mg => m = F/g = 1 / 9.80665 = 0.102 kg 2.2 A model car rolls down an incline with a slope so the gravitational “pull” in the direction of motion is one third of the standard gravitational force (see Problem 2.1). If the car has a mass of 0.45 kg. Find the acceleration. Solution: ma = ∑ F = mg / 3 a = mg / 3m = g/3 = 9.80665 / 3 = 3.27 m/s 2 2.3 A car drives at 60 km/h and is brought to a full stop with constant deceleration in 5 seconds. If the total car and driver mass is 1075 kg. Find the necessary force. Solution: Acceleration is the time rate of change of velocity. ma = ∑ F ; a = dV / dt = (60 × 1000) / (3600 × 5) = 3.33 m/s 2 F net = ma = 1075 × 3.333 = 3583 N 2.4 A washing machine has 2 kg of clothes spinning at a rate that generates an acceleration of 24 m/s 2 . What is the force needed to hold the clothes? Solution: F = ma = 2 kg × 24 m/s 2 = 48 N 2.5 A 1200-kg car moving at 20 km/h is accelerated at a constant rate of 4 m/s 2 up to a speed of 75 km/h. What are the force and total time required? Solution: a = dV / dt => ∆ t = dV/a = [ ( 75 -20 ) / 4 ] × ( 1000 / 3600 ) ∆ t = 3.82 sec ; F = ma = 1200 × 4 = 4800 N 2-3 2.6 A steel plate of 950 kg accelerates from rest with 3 m/s 2 for a period of 10s. What force is needed and what is the final velocity? Solution: Constant acceleration can be integrated to get velocity. a = dV / dt => ∫ dV = ∫ a dt => ∆ V = a ∆ t = 3 × 10 = 30 m/s V = 30 m/s ; F = ma = 950 × 3 = 2850 N 2.7 A 15 kg steel container has 1.75 kilomoles of liquid propane inside. A force of 2 kN now accelerates this system. What is the acceleration? Solution: ma = ∑ F ⇒ a = ∑ F / m m = m steel + m propane = 15 + (1.75 × 44.094) = 92.165 kg a = 2000 / 92.165 = 21.7 m/s 2 2.8 A rope hangs over a pulley with the two equally long ends down. On one end you attach a mass of 5 kg and on the other end you attach 10 kg. Assuming standard gravitation and no friction in the pulley what is the acceleration of the 10 kg mass when released?...
