Problem Set 3 Physics 1116 : Due Friday, 09/17/2010 Please write the names of any classmates with whom you discussed the homework problems at the top of your problem set 6. A ball is thrown at an initial speed v from level ground. What angle θ should be chosen so that the area under the trajectory is maximized? 7. Consider a particle that feels an angular force only, of the form F θ = m ˙ r ˙ θ . Determine the dependence of ˙ r on r . Hint : This problem involves a bit of calculus trickery. You may find it useful to determine how ˙ θ depends r . 8. Calculate the initial acceleration of both masses in the pulley system below as the system is just released from rest, assuming that the pulleys and strings in the problem

Magneto has tied up the X-Men in a diabolical ring of pulleys, as shown in the gure below. The ring is such that a single rope runs through all the pulleys, and the last ( N th) pulley is connected back to the rst pulley, as shown in the gure. Assume m 1 m 2 1 that all the pulleys and ropes are massless and frictionless. There are N pulleys and N X-Men, and all X-Men are of identical mass m (Colossus has been on a diet). Find the acceleration of the X-Men in this situation. m N-1 m N m 1 m 2 2...
