The engine produces a constant force that moves the train forward at acceleration a. If 3 of the cars are removed, what will be the acceleration of the shorter train? a) 0.5a b) 1.7a c) 2.0a d) 3.0a 2) Two boxes are placed next to each other on a smooth flat surface. Box A has mass 1 kg and Box B has mass 3 kg. A constant horizontal force of 8 N is applied to Box A. Find the force exerted on Box B. 3) Two boxes are placed next to each other on a flat surface. Box A has mass 1 kg and Box B has mass 3 kg. The coefficients of friction are 0.3 and 0.4 for kinetic and static friction, respectively. A constant horizontal force of 8 N is applied. Find the acceleration of Box B. a) 0 m/s 2 b) 1 m/s 2 c) 2 m/s 2 d) 3 m/s 2 4) A 0.2 kg piece of wood is being held in place against a vertical wall by a horizontal force of 5 N. Find the magnitude of the friction force acting on the wood. 5) A 4 kg block on a horizontal surface is attached to a spring with a force constant of 50 N/m. As the spring and block are pulled forward at constant speed, the spring stretches by 25 cm. Find the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the table. a) 0.25 b) 0.32 c) 0.42 d) 0.51 6) A 90 kg man drives his car at a constant speed of 15 m/s over a small hill that has a circular cross section of radius 40 m. Find his apparent weight as he crests the top of the hill. 15 m/s 40 m 5N a) 1 N b) 2 N c) 5 N d) 10 N A B a) 1 N b) 2 N c) 4 N d) 6 N

    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.
