Unformatted text preview: 1) (30 points) Two blocks Two blocks sit on a table. They are connected T T
by a string as shown. Another string leads off ‘ 7" to the left. Note that the tension in each string @ has been labeled as T l and T2; please use that / / / /
notation. The two blocks have equal masses M. Somebody pulls on the left string with a force FE. Until told otherwise in part d, ignore frictiOn. a) Find the acceleration of the blocks. b) Is the tension in T2 larger, the same as, or less than tension T1? Explain your reasoning
clearly. (You can do this after part c if you want to, but you don’t have to) c) Find an expression for T2 in terms of M and T]. d) Now we want to add friction with the table to one of the blocks until T l and T2 are equal.
To which block do we have to add the friction, and why? 6) Find the coefﬁcient of friction needed for part d. clmwwég MM; M ﬂew/Avrwé/

4’ 2) (30 points) Atwood’s lesser machine Two blocks are connected by a string, as shown at the left.
Ignore friction. Note that the blocks do not have equal
masses. a) Does mass M2 fall faster, slower or equal than when
it’s in freefall? Be sure to explain your reasoning. b) How are the pull of the string on M] and the pull of
the string on M2 related? Please comment on both
direction and magnitude. c) Is the total momentum of M1 and M2 conserved?
Why or why not? (1) Find an expressionfor the acceleration of M1 in terms of M1, M2 and g. Be sure to
explain your conventions, and describe how you’ve checked your result. © [41 VQ/CQ M CmLﬂ> Muff at "Cong Marge" 4) 44W. 0’1 ® {£949. ﬂ'g} a €ro~ ’47 M— ML)

You throw a ball of mass 0.1kg with speed 4 m/s at a toy car of mass 0.7 kg.
a) If the ball sticks to the car, what will be their combined speed afterwards?
