Unformatted text preview: A magician’s trick involves pulling a tablecloth out from under a set table. Cup starts from rest, at t=0 the cloth is Jerked away at 15 m/s. Assume coefficient of static and dynamic friction equal to 0.6. The cup’s acceleration is 6.51 to the right. Is this correct? 2/24/09 4 FBD = IRD Does the direction make sense? Relative Velocities Coordinate Transformation Array/ Reference Frames Knowing which coordinate system to use ◦ Look for clues (i.e. if Rc is given chances are path is the way to go)...
