Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A curve of radius r is banked at angle so that a car traveling with uniform speed v can round the curve without relying on friction to keep it from slipping to its left or right. m Find the component of the net force on the car parallel to the incline summationdisplay vector F bardbl . 1. F = m v 2 r cos 2. F = m v 2 r sin 2 cos 3. F = m v 2 r cot 4. F = m v 2 r tan 5. F = m v 2 r tan 6. F = m v 2 r sin 7. F = m v 2 r sin 8. F = m v 2 r sin cos 9. F = m v 2 r cos correct 10. F = m v 2 r sin 2 cos 2 Explanation: Basic Concepts: To keep an object mov ing in a circle requires a force directed toward the center of the circle; the magnitude of the force is F c = m a c = m v 2 r Also remember: vector F = summationdisplay i vector F i Solution: In an Inertial Frame: The car is performing circular motion with a constant speed, thus its acceleration is just the cen tripetal acceleration, a c = v 2 r . The net force on the car is F net = m a c = m v 2 r . Watching from the Point of View of Some one Standing on the Ground. m g F net F bardbl N r y pampalone (tp8327) HW#7 swaminathan (10500) 2 The component of this force parallel to the incline is summationdisplay vector F bardbl = m g sin = F net cos = m v 2 r cos . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points If r = 56 m and v = 145 km / hr, what is ? The acceleration due to gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 71 . 3101 . Explanation: F bardbl is the component of the weight of the car parallel to the incline, so m g sin = F bardbl = m v 2 r cos tan = v 2 g r = (145 km / hr) 2 (9 . 8 m / s 2 )(56 m ) parenleftbigg 1000 m km parenrightbigg 2 parenleftbigg hr 3600 s parenrightbigg 2 = 2 . 95609 = arctan(2 . 95609) = 71 . 3101 . 003 10.0 points A 64 kg child sits in a swing supported by two chains, each 1 . 4 m long. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . If the tension in each chain at the lowest point is 408 N, find the childs speed at the lowest point. Note: Neglect the mass of the seat. Correct answer: 2 . 03224 m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 64 kg , = 1 . 4 m , t = 408 N , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 .
