Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A block of mass 2 kg and one of mass 8 kg are connected by a massless string over a pulley that is in the shape of a disk having a radius of 0 . 17 m, and a mass of 9 kg. In addition, the blocks are allowed to move on a fixed block wedge of angle 33 , as shown. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0 . 15 for both blocks. 2 kg 8 k g 33 . 17 m 9 kg What is the acceleration of the two blocks? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . As sume the positive direction is to the right. Correct answer: 2 . 06186 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : m 1 = 2 kg , m 2 = 8 kg , M = 9 kg , and R = 0 . 17 m . m 1 m 2 M T 1 T 2 Applying Newtons law to m 1 , N 1 m 1 g = m 1 a y = 0 N 1 = m 1 g , where the force of friction on m 1 is f 1 = N 1 = m 1 g = (0 . 15) (2 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 2 . 94 N and T 1 f 1 = m 1 a T 1 = m 1 a + f 1 . (1) For the mass m 2 , applying Newtons law perpendicular to the slanted surface N 2 m 2 g cos = m 2 a perp = 0 N 2 = m 2 g cos , so the force of friction is f 2 = N 2 = m 2 g cos = (0 . 15) (8 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) cos 33 = 9 . 86277 N . Applying Newtons law parallel to the surface, m 2 g sin  f 2 T 2 = m 2 a T 2 = m 2 a + m 2 g sin  f 2 (2) Subtraction eq. (1) from, eq. (2), T 2 T 1 = m 2 g sin  ( m 1 + m 2 ) a f 1 f 2 . Applying Newtons law to the pulley, summationdisplay = I + T 1 R T 2 R = M R 2 2 a R T 1 + T 2 = 1 2 M a m 2 g sin  ( m 1 + m 2 ) a f 1 f 2 = 1 2 M a a = 2 m 2 g sin  2 f 1 2 f 2 2 m 1 + 2 m 2 + M . Since ghei (mg42382) HW 9 opyrchal (11130) 2 2 m 2 g sin  2 ( f 1 + f 2 ) = 2(8 kg)(9 . 8 m / s 2 )(sin 33 ) 2(2 . 94 N + 9 . 86277 N) = 59 . 7939 kg m / s 2 and 2 m 1 + 2 m 2 + M = 2(2 kg) + 2(8 kg) + 9 kg = 29 kg , then a = 2 m 2 g sin  2 f 1 2 f 2 2 m 1 + 2 m 2 + M = 59 . 7939 kg m / s 2 29 kg = 2 . 06186 m / s 2 . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the tension in the horizontal part of the string. Correct answer: 7 . 06372 N. Explanation: From eq. (1), T 1 = f 1 + m 1 a = 2 . 94 N + (2 kg) (2 . 06186 m / s 2 ) = 7 . 06372 N ....
