Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A block is pushed upward along a frictionless inclined plane. m F Determine the horizontal force F on the block which causes it to move upward with a constant velocity. 1. F = m g sin 2. F = m g sin 3. F = m g cos 4. F = m g tan correct 5. F = m g cos 6. F = m g cot Explanation: The block is subject to three forces: its weight vector W , the normal force vector N of the surface, and the external force vector F which pushes it to the right. The external force acts in the hor- izontal direction, the weight acts vertically, and the normal force acts in the direction nor- mal (perpendicular) to the surface leftward from vertically up by angle . Let the x axis point horizontally to the left while the y axix points vertically up. In these coordinates, the net force on the block has components F net x = F N sin , F net y = N cos W. Since the block does not accelerate, both com- ponents must vanish, hence N = W cos = mg cos and F = N sin = mg sin cos = mg tan . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The 5 . 6 N weight is in equilibrium under the influence of the three forces acting on it. The F force acts from above on the left at an angle of with the horizontal. The 5 . 3 N force acts from above on the right at an angle of 42 with the horizontal. The force 5 . 6 N acts straight down. F 5 . 3 N 5 . 6 N 4 2 What is the magnitude of the force F ? Correct answer: 4 . 44189 N. Explanation: Standard angular measurements are from the positive x-axis in a counter-clockwise di- rection. Let : F 1 = F , F 2 = 5 . 3 N , 2 = 42 , and F 3 = 5 . 6 N . Consider the free body diagram. The green vectors are the components of the slanted forces.
