Unformatted text preview: ma = D = a = r g v 2 L Using the fact that a = vdv/dx , we have v dv dx = r g v 2 L = Lvdv r gL + v 2 = dx Thus, we find L 8 v o vdv r gL + v 2 = 8 d dx = L 2 f n D r gL + v 2 ie e v =0 v = v o = d Evaluating the left hand side yields L 2 f n w r gL r gL + v 2 o W = d Therefore, the total distance traveled is d = L 2 f n w 1 + v 2 o r gL W Turning to the time elapsed, we use the fact that a = dv/dt . Hence, dv dt = r g v 2 L = Ldv r gL + v 2 = dt We integrate as follows. L 8 v o dv r gL + v 2 = 8 t f dt = L r gL tan 1 v r gL r gL e e e e v =0 v = v o = t f 3.26. CHAPTER 3, PROBLEM 26 241 Simplifying and rearranging terms, we conclude that t f = L r g tan 1 w v o r gL W...
