Unformatted text preview: khounvivongsy (sk27799) Homework 15 Weathers (17104) 1 This printout should have 10 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points An Atwood machine is constructed using a hoop with spokes of negligible mass. The 2 . 2 kg mass of the pulley is concentrated on its rim, which is a distance 22 cm from the axle. The mass on the right is 1 . 44 kg and on the left is 1 . 87 kg. 2 . 4 m 2 . 2 kg 22 cm 1 . 87 kg 1 . 44 kg What is the magnitude of the linear acceler ation of the hanging masses? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 0 . 764791 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : M = 2 . 2 kg , R = 22 cm , m 1 = 1 . 44 kg , m 2 = 1 . 87 kg , h = 2 . 4 m , and v = R . Consider the free body diagrams 1 . 87 kg 1 . 44 kg T 2 T 1 m 2 g m 1 g a a The net acceleration a = r is in the direc tion of the heavier mass m 2 . For the mass m 1 , F net = m 1 a = m 1 g T 1 T 1 = m 1 g m 1 a and for the mass m 2 , F net = m 2 a = T 2 m 2 g T 2 = m 2 a + m 2 g . The pulleys mass is concentrated on the rim, so I = M r 2 , and net = summationdisplay ccw summationdisplay cw = I T 1 r T 2 r = ( m r 2 ) parenleftBig a r parenrightBig = m r a m a = T 1 T 2 m a = ( m 1 m 2 ) g ( m 1 + m 2 ) a m a + ( m 1 + m 2 ) a = ( m 1 m 2 ) g a = ( m 1 m 2 ) g m + m 1 + m 2 = (1 . 44 kg 1 . 87 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) 2 . 2 kg + 1 . 44 kg + 1 . 87 kg = . 764791 m / s 2 . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A block of mass 3 kg and one of mass 8 kg are connected by a massless string over a pulley that is in the shape of a disk having a radius of 0 . 21 m, and a mass of 9 kg. In addition, the khounvivongsy (sk27799) Homework 15 Weathers (17104) 2 blocks are allowed to move on a fixed block wedge of angle 42 , as shown. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0 . 17 for both blocks. 3 kg 8 k g 42 . 21 m 9 kg What is the acceleration of the two blocks? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . As sume the positive direction is to the right. Correct answer: 2 . 42305 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : m 1 = 3 kg , m 2 = 8 kg , M = 9 kg , and R = 0 . 21 m . m 1 m 2 M T 1 T 2 Applying Newtons law to m 1 , N 1 m 1 g = m 1 a y = 0 N 1 = m 1 g , where the force of friction on m 1 is f 1 = N 1 = m 1 g = (0 . 17) (3 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 4 . 998 N and T 1 f 1 = m 1 a T 1 = m 1 a + f 1 .
