Physics 1112 Homework #6 Solutions #6.55 [Ski Tow Power] Neglect friction. Find the power needed by calculating the rate of increase of total mechanical energy of the skiers. Since they move with constant speed, their KE doesn't change. Only their gravitational PE changes as the height y of each skier increases at: . Let M = the total mass of all the skiers = (50)(70.0 kg) = 3.50 x 10 3 kg. Their speed v = (12.0 km/h) = (12.0 x 10 3 m/h)(1 h/3600 s) = 3.33 m/s Power: = Mg v y = Mg v sin q = (3.50 x 10 3 kg)(9.80 N/kg)(3.33 m/s)sin15.0° = 29.6 kW = (29.6 kW)(1 hp/0.746 kW) = 39.6 hp OR Another way to find the power is to use , where F || is the component parallel to the velocity of the force pulling the skiers up the hill or the force due to the ski tow. Newton's 2nd Law: +x: F || - Mg sin q = ma x = 0 [Constant v] Þ F || = Mg sin q = (3.50 x 10 3 kg)(9.80 N/kg)sin15° = 8.88 x 10 3 N Power: P = F||v = (Mg sin q ) v = Mg v sin q , as before. #7.76 [PE Graph] (a) . The slope of the PE graph is < 0 at A, so F x (A) > 0. The force is in the +x direction ( ® ), pushing the particle towards lower PE and larger x. (b) At point B the slope of the PE graph is > 0, so F x (B) < 0. The force on the particle is pointing in the -x direction ( ¬ ), pushing the particle to smaller x and lower PE. (c) KE is maximum when PE is minimum: around 0.75 m. (d) The curve at point C looks pretty close to horizontal (slope = 0), so the force there is zero. (e) The object had zero KE at point A, so it can only reach a point where the PE equals the PE at A (like a pendulum swinging back and forth between positions of equal height). On the graph, this looks like about 2.2 m, labeled point D and indicated by the dashed line at the PE height of A. (f) The points of local minimum PE: the one found in part (c) at x = 0.75 m and the other one around 1.9 m. (g) The only PE local maximum: point C. (h) The particle is moving slowest and not changing direction at point C. Although it is momentarily at rest at points A and D, it is changing direction there, so these are "turning points" of its motion. dy dt = v y = v sin θ P = dU g dt = d dt ( Mgy ) = Mg dy dt P = !

### 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.
