Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Lee pushes horizontally with a force of 52 N on a 25 kg mass for 11 m across a floor. Calculate the amount of work Lee did. Correct answer: 572 J. Explanation: Let : F = 52 N and d = 11 m . The mass of the object is ignored since there is no friction present, so W = F d = (52 N) (11 m) = 572 J . 002 10.0 points A cart loaded with bricks has a total mass of 17 . 9 kg and is pulled at constant speed by a rope. The rope is inclined at 30 . 8 above the horizontal and the cart moves 9 . 4 m on a horizontal floor. The coefficient of kinetic friction between ground and cart is 0 . 5 . The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . How much work is done on the cart by the rope? Correct answer: 0 . 635159 kJ. Explanation: F 3 . 8 17 . 9 kg = 0 . 5 Summing the components of the forces along the vertical direction provides summationdisplay F y = F sin + N  mg = 0 . For the horizontal direction we have summationdisplay F x = F cos  k N = 0 (1) N = F cos k , so that F sin + F cos k mg = 0 F k sin + F cos = k mg F = k mg k sin + cos ....
