II ";(690 N/m) (0.14 m)2j(0.05 kg) 16.4 mis, so the time it takes to travel 21 m (horizontally) is approximately t = d/v= 21 m/(16.4 m/s) = 1.28 s. = 57. A surface is frictionless except for a region between x = 1 m, and x ::::: m, where thecoefflcient of 2 friction is given by I' = ax2 + bx + c, v.lith 2 b = 6 mI, and c = 4. A block is a:::: 2 m , sliding in the x direction when it encbunters this region. What is the minimum speed it li!musthave to get all the way across the region? II Problem
59. A skier starts from rest at the topofthe lefthand peak in Fig. 839. What is the maximum coefficient of kinetic friction on the slopes that would allow the skier to coast to the second peak? (Your answer, of course, neglects air resistance.) Solution II Solution
Assume that the maximal frictional force of the slopes and gravity are the only significant forces acting on the skier, who starts from rest on the higher peak (point A) and finishes at rest just reaching the lower peak (point B). Then the workenergy theorem requires that Wr = 11U :'::: mg(YB ~ YA)' The force of friction on each slope is !k =  JJ.r:ax mg cos 8, and the displ...
