Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 76 N block rests on a table. The sus pended mass has a weight of 36 N. 76 N 36 N s What frictional force is required to keep the blocks from moving? Correct answer: 36 N. Explanation: Given : W 1 = 76 N and W 2 = 36 N . a T N W 1 s N a T W 2 Consider the forces then the blocks would first start to move: For block W 2 vertically, F y,net = TW 2 = 0 For block W 1 horizontally, F x,net = T N = 0 N = T = W 1 = 36 N . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A car is traveling at 54 . 1 mi / h on a horizontal highway. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . If the coefficient of friction between road and tires on a rainy day is 0 . 077, what is the minimum distance in which the car will stop? (1 mi = 1 . 609) Correct answer: 387 . 396 m. Explanation: Newtons second law in the direction of motion gives f k = k mg = ma Solving for a a = k g (1) The acceleration a may be found from the following kinematics equation with v f = 0: v 2 f = v 2 + 2 ax a = v 2 2 x (2) Combining equations (1) and (2), we obtain v 2 2 x = k g or solving for x , x = v 2 2 k g Plugging in the appropriate values, x wet = (24 . 1797 m / s) 2 2(0 . 077) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 387 . 396 m 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the stopping distance when the sur face is dry and dry = 0 . 645?...
