above the base of the cliff and has a velocity of 50 meters per second at an angle 37° with the horizontal. Air resistance is negligible. Consider the following two cases and use g = 10 m/s2, sin 37° = 0.60, and
cos 37° = 0.80. Case I: The projectile follows the path shown by the curved line in the following diagram. A (a) Calculate the total time from launch until the projectile hits the ground at point C.
(b) Calculate the horizontal distance R that the projectile travels before it hits the ground.
(c) Calculate the speed of the projectile at points A, B, and C. Copyright © 1985 by Educational Testing Service. All rights reserved.

to separate into two parts of masses 6 kilograms and It) kilograms. The explosive force on each
part is horizontal and in the plane of the trajectory. The ﬁkilogram mass strikes the ground at

clockwise. When the box makes an angle 0 with the horizontal, the block of mass m just starts to slide,
and at this instant the box is stopped from rotating. Thus at angle 0. the block slides a distance of, hits the
spring of force constant k, and compresses the spring a distance x before coming to rest. In terms of the
given quantities, derive an expression for each of the following. (3) us, the coefﬁcient of static friction (13) AE, the 105s in total mechanical energy of the blockspring system from the start of the block down

mass 4m at rest on a table as shown above. The moment of inertia of this pulley about its axis is gmﬂ. Passing over the pulley is a massless cord supporting a block of mass m on the left and a block of mass 2m on the right. The cord does not slip on the pulley, so after the blockpulley system is released from rest, the
pulley begins to rotate. (a) On the diagrams below. draw and label all the forces acting on each block. [3 (b) Use the symbols identified in part (a) to write each of the following.
