Unformatted text preview: khounvivongsy (sk27799) – Homework 08b – Weathers – (17104) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A force vector F = F x ˆ ı + F y ˆ acts on a particle that undergoes a displacement of vectors = s x ˆ ı + s y ˆ where F x = 10 N, F y = − 4 N, s x = 4 m, and s y = 2 m. Find the work done by the force on the particle. Correct answer: 32 J. Explanation: The work is given by W = vector F · vectors = F x s x + F y s y = (10 N) (4 m) + ( − 4 N) (2 m) = 32 J . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the angle between vector F and vectors .
