1 ME 475 HOMEWORK #2 Spring 2011 PROBLEM 1 : GIVEN : A rapid transit train car weighs 63000 lb. The combined effects of air resistance and wheel rolling resistance provide equivalent viscous damping of 147 lb/(ft/sec). The dc traction motors that propel the train car run on 1000 volts and provide an equivalent traction force of 17.3 lb/volt. FIND : (a) Provide a schematic to show how to set up this problem. Consider the velocity as the variable of interest. (b) Show that the governing equation of motion for this problem is given by: where v is the velocity and E is the applied motor voltage. (c) Using Laplace transform techniques, solve the equation of motion for v(t) given that E(t) is a step of 1000 volts. (d) Based on your solution of part (c), what is the top speed of this train (in miles per hour )? (e) Based on your solution of part (c), determine how long it will take for the train to reach a speed of 60 miles per hour.

### What students are saying

• 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.
