Physics 102 - Newton’s Laws 1: The force of gravity is twice as large on a 2 kg rock as it is on a 1 kg rock. However, if both rocks are dropped to the ground, they experience the same acceleration. Explain. 2: Two constant forces of equal magnitude suddenly begin acting on a previously moving ob- ject. Under what situation would the object continue to move with the exact same velocity? Explain. 3: An elevator with a person in it is being pulled upwards by a cable. Identify all interaction forces (consistent with Newton’s 3rd Law) in the system. Specify the object the force acts on, a label for its magnitude and its direction. Consider your system to consist of the cable, the elevator, the Earth and the person. For example, the Earth pulls down on the elevator with force M elevator g and the elevator pulls up on the Earth with force M elevator g . There are four more pairs of forces (when you ignore gravitational forces that do not include the Earth). 4a: A train with a mass of 5 10 6 kg is initially traveling at 30 m/s. The conductor applies the brakes and that leads to a resistive force of 1 10 6 N acting on the train. Determine the speed of the train 30 s later and the distance it travels during that time. b: Graph x ( t ), v ( t ) and a ( t ). 5: Four forces have the same magnitudes but di erent directions as shown in the figures.

What students are saying

• 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.
