AP1200 Quiz 2 1. Two water slides at a pool are shaped differently but start at the same height h. Two riders, rider 1 and rider 2, start from rest at the same time on different slides. (a) Which rider is traveling faster at the bottom? (b) Which rider makes it to the bottom first? Ignore friction. Answer (a) Each rider started from the same height and there was no friction forces involved, so the speed v at the bottom is the same. (b) Note the rider 2 is consistently at a lower elevation than rider 1 for the entire trip. This means rider 2 has converted his potential energy to kinetic energy earlier. Consequently, he is traveling faster than rider 1 for the whole trip. Rider 2 gets to the bottom first. 2. In the figure, horizontal force F 1 of magnitude 10 N is applied to a box on a floor, but

Unformatted text preview: the box does not slide. Then, as the magnitude of vertically applied force F 2 is increased from zero but before the box begins to slide, do the following quantities increase, decrease, or stay the same: (a) the magnitude of the frictional force on the box (b) the magnitude of the normal force on the box from the floor (c) the maximum value f s,max of the static frictional force on the box? Answer: (a) The magnitude of the frictional force on the box will not change since the horizontal force F1 is not changed. (b) The magnitude of the normal force on the box decreases due to the increase of vertical force F2. (c) The magnitude of the normal force decreases so the maximum value f s,max of the static frictional force on the box decreases. F 1 F 2 Rider 2 Rider 1...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
