FORCE AND MOTION E XERCISES Section 4.2 Newton’s First and Second Laws 13. I NTERPRET We interpret this as a problem involving the application of Newton’s second law. The object under consideration is the train and the physical quantity of interest is the net force acting on it. D EVELOP The net force can be found by using Equation 4.3, net . F ma = r r E VALUATE Using Equation 4.3, the magnitude of the force acting on the train is found to be 6 2 6 net (1.5 10 kg)(2.5 m/s ) 3.75 10 N F ma = = × = × A SSESS The result is reasonable, since by definition, one newton is the force required to accelerate a 1-kg mass at the rate of 1 m/s 2 . 14. Ignoring the probable presence of other forces, we can apply Equation 4.3 to find (a) 5 / (1.2 10 N)/ a F m = = × 4 2 (6.1 10 kg) 1.97 m/s , × = and (b) 5 6 2 (1.2 10 N)/(1.46 10 kg) 8.21 cm/s . a = × × = 15. I NTERPRET We interpret this as a problem involving the application of Newton’s second law. The object under consideration is the airplane and the physical quantity of interest is the plane’s mass. D EVELOP We shall assume that the runway is horizontal (so that the vertical force of gravity and the normal force of the surface cancel) and neglect aerodynamic forces (which are small just after the plane begins to move). Then the net force equals the engine’s thrust and is parallel to the acceleration. The plane’s mass can be found by using Equation 4.3, net . F ma = r r E VALUATE Using Equation 4.3, the mass of the plane is found to be 4 3 net 2 1.1 10 N 1.53 10 kg 7.2 m/s F m a × = = = × A SSESS First, the units are consistent since 2 1 N 1 kg m/s . = The result is reasonable, since by definition, one newton is the force required to accelerate a 1-kg mass at the rate of 1 m/s 2 . 16. Assume that the seatbelt holds the passenger firmly to the seat, so that the passenger also stops in 0.14 s without incurring any secondary impact. Then the passenger’s average acceleration is av 0 (0 )/ , a v t = - and the average net force on the passenger, while coming to rest, is av av 0 / (60 kg)(110/3.6)(m/s)/ F ma mv t = = - = - (0.14 s) 13.1 kN, = - or about 1.5 tons. (Here, we used the one-dimensional form of Newton’s second law. The minus sign indicates that the force is opposite to the direction of the initial velocity. It is reasonable to assume that this is a component of the force exerted by the seatbelt.) 17. I NTERPRET In this problem we want to find the relationship between the initial speed of the car and the force required to stop it. D EVELOP From Equation 4.3, we see that the net force on a car of given mass is proportional to the acceleration, net . F a ; We can then relate the three quantities, displacement, velocity, and acceleration, by Equation 2.11, 2 2 0 0 2 ( ). v v a x x = + - E VALUATE To stop a car in a given distance, 0 ( ), x x - the acceleration is 2 2 2 0 0 0 0 2( ) 2( ) . v v v x x x x a - - - - = = Therefore, we see that 2 net 0 . F v ; Doubling 0 v quadruples the magnitude of net . F A SSESS The conclusion that 2 net 0 F v = is an important fact to remember when driving at high speeds.

### 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.
