sanchez (ds28677) – homework 10 – Turner – (58220) 1 This print-out should have 12 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points In a certain system of units, 24 . 8 thumbs = 1 meter, 1 pause = 37 . 5 s, and 1 glob = 18 . 7 kg. The unit of force in this system is a perk (p). How many kiloperks (kp) are in 50 . 8 N? Correct answer: 94 . 7406 kp. Explanation: The unit of measure for force in the new system is 1 perk = 1 glob · thumb pause 2 . f = parenleftbigg 50 . 8 kg · m s 2 parenrightbigg · 1 glob 18 . 7 kg · 24 . 8 thumbs 1 m · parenleftbigg 37 . 5 s 1 pause parenrightbigg 2 · 1 kp 1000 p = 94 . 7406 kp . 002 10.0 points A person weighing 0 . 8 kN rides in an elevator that has a downward acceleration of 1 . 2 m / s 2 . The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . What is the magnitude of the force of the elevator floor on the person? Correct answer: 0 . 702041 kN. Explanation: Basic Concepts: summationdisplay vector F = mvectora vector W = mvectorg Solution: Since W = m g , F net = ma = W − f f = W − ma = W parenleftbigg 1 a g parenrightbigg = (0 . 8 kN) parenleftbigg 1 1 . 2 m / s 2 9 . 8 m / s 2 parenrightbigg = 0 . 702041 kN . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A pulley is massless and frictionless. 1 kg, 1 kg, and 8 kg masses are suspended as in the figure. 2 . 1 m 24 . 5 cm ω 1 kg 1 kg 8 kg T 2 T 1 T 3 What is the tension T 1 in the string be- tween the two blocks on the left-hand side of the pulley? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 15 . 68 N. Explanation: Let : R = 24 . 5 cm , m 1 = 1 kg , m 2 = 1 kg , m 3 = 8 kg , and h = 2 . 1 m . Consider the free body diagrams 1 kg 1 kg 8 kg T 1 T 2 T 3 m 1 g T 1 m 2 g m 3 g a a For each mass in the system vector F net = mvectora .

sanchez (ds28677) – homework 10 – Turner – (58220) 2 Since the string changes direction around the pulley, the forces due to the tensions T 2 and T 3 are in the same direction (up). The acceleration of the system will be down to the right ( m 3 > m 1 + m 2 ), and each mass in the system accelerates at the same rate (the string does not stretch). Let this acceleration rate be a and the tension over the pulley be T T 2 = T 3 . For the lower left-hand mass m 1 the accel- eration is up and T 1 m 1 g = m 1 a . (1) For the upper left-hand mass m 2 the acceler- ation is up and T T 1 m 2 g = m 2 a . (2) For the right-hand mass m 3 the acceleration is down and T + m 3 g = m 3 a . (3) Adding Eqs. (1), (2), and (3), we have ( m 3 m 1 m 2 ) g = ( m 1 + m 2 + m 3 ) a (4) a = m 3 m 1 m 2 m 1 + m 2 + m 3 g (5) = 8 kg 1 kg

    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.
