171 Chapter 5 1. We are only concerned with horizontal forces in this problem (gravity plays no direct role). We take East as the + x direction and North as + y . This calculation is efficiently implemented on a vector-capable calculator, using magnitude-angle notation (with SI units understood). a F m   9 0 0 8 0 118 30 2 9 53 . . . . b g b g b g Therefore, the acceleration has a magnitude of 2.9 m/s 2 . 2. We apply Newton’s second law (Eq. 5-1 or, equivalently, Eq. 5-2). The net force applied on the chopping block is F F F net 1 2 , where the vector addition is done using unit-vector notation. The acceleration of the block is given by a F F m 1 2 d i / . (a) In the first case         1 2 ? ? 3.0N i 4.0N j 3.0N i 4.0N j 0 F F   so a 0.

Since v = constant, we have a = 0, which implies F F F ma net 1 2 0 . Thus, the other force must be 2 1 ? ( 2 N) i (6 N) j. F F     5. The net force applied on the chopping block is F F F F net 1 2 3 , where the vector addition is done using unit-vector notation. The acceleration of the block is given by a F F F m 1 2 3 d i / .
