Recitation 04 Spring 2011 As you work on today’s problems remember that every time you use a fundamental principle you must explain clearly what physical system you are applying the principle to and which objects in the system’s surroundings are interacting significantly with it. Problem 1. Jack is pulling straight up on a thin rope attached to a bucket to lift some hand tools up to the roof where he is making repairs. The mass of the pail is 2 kg, and the total mass of the tools it contains is 8 kg. a) At the moment, the pail is moving slowly straight upward at constant speed. What force is Jack exerting on the rope? b) What is the net force exerted on the tools in the bucket? What objects in their surroundings are they interacting significantly with and what force does each of those objects exert on it? c) How does the force Jack is exerting on the rope at the moment compare to the average force that he has exerted on the rope from the time he started to lift the bucket of tools until now?

    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.
