Use energy conservation to find (a) the velocity of the T.D-kg massjust before it hits the flCior,(b) the maximum height reached by the 4.0-kg mass, and (c) the fraction of the syStem's initial mechanical energy lost when the 7.0-kg mass comes to rest on the floor. Problem 34. The maximum speed of the pendulmJ bob in a grandfather clock is 0.55 m/s. tithe ~endulum makes a maximum angle of 8;0 with he vertical, what is the length of the pendulum? il . Solution 8-6(a),v2 !I 'I From Example = 2g(1 - cos 00), or = v2/2g(1 - cosBo) = (0.55 m/s)2j2(9.8 m/J2)x (1 -cos 8) = 1.59 m.' ' Problem 35. A 2;G-kgmass rests on a frictionless table and is connected over a frictionless pulley to:la 4.G-kg, mass, as shown in Fig. 8-31. Use conservation of energy to calculate the speed of the masses after they have moved 50 cm. FIGURE 8-32 Problem 36. , . Solution If we ignore possible losses (friction and air resistance) and the energy of the string and pulley (both assumed mass...

    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.
