Department of Physics Physics 8.01T Fall Term 2004 In-Class Problems 4, and 5: Newton’s Laws of Motion Solutions We would like each group to apply the problem solving strategy with the four stages (see below) to answer the following two problems. I. Understand – get a conceptual grasp of the problem II. Devise a Plan - set up a procedure to obtain the desired solution III. Carry our your plan – solve the problem! IV. Look Back – check your solution and method of solution In-Class Problem 4 Concept Question: ( Newton’s third law ) In the situation below, a person pulls a string attached to block A, which is in turn attached to another, heavier block B via a second string. Assume the strings are massless and inextensible; and ignore friction. a) Does block A have a larger, equal, or smaller acceleration than block B? b) What is the force of string 1 on block A? What is the force of string 2 on block B? Explain your answers.
