If the elevator cable breaks when the elevator is at a height habove the top of the spring, calculate the value that the spring constant éizshould have so that passengers undergo an acceleration of no more than 7.0 g when brought to rest. Let iiifbe the total mass of the
elevator and passengers. Solution Steps: 1) The total energy before the elevator drops (Mgh) must equal the total energy when
the spring is fully compressed (1/2 k x2 — mgx) Notice that the ﬁnal energy includes a
loss in gravitational potential energy equal to mgx 2) Draw a free body diagram of the elevator with the compressed spring to show that
the maximum compression xmax < 8mg/k 3) plug in your x value in step 2 into your energy equation in step 1

A) At what angle lsi(see the ﬁgure) will the skier leave the sphere? «£2 Solution Steps: 1) Draw a free body diagram and determine the sum of the forces
in the x and y direction when the skier is at a small angle 9 2) The sum of the forces in the y direction (toward the center of the
Sphere) results in a centripetal acceleration. 3) Use Energy Conservation to determine the velocity as a function of the angle 6 (based on the change in height)

angle (9) with respect to the horizontal. The spring is then released. A) If the mass is not attached to the spring, how far up the slope will the mass move

Solution Steps: 1) Draw a free body diagram of the bicyclist going
down the hill. 2) Show that the force of friction (Ff,) traveling at
a constant speed is equal to the downhill
component of the weight (mgsinB) (constant v

internal friction of the bike is the same up and
downhill since the speed is the same) show that the
force needed by the rider is equal to the sum of
