Unformatted text preview: 272 CHAPTER 4. WORK AND ENERGY 4.8 Chapter 4, Problem 8 Problem: A wooden block of mass m rests on a wooden incline, which makes an angle θ to the horizontal. The block is connected by a flexible inextensible cord to a weight of mass 2m as shown. The pulleys are frictionless and have negligible mass. A lower support that held the weight in place has been removed, and the gravitational field is pulling the weight down. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the incline is µk . What is the block’s velocity, v , when it has moved a tangential distance along the incline? Express your answer in terms of , µk , θ and gravitational acceleration, g . z g = −g k ........ ........ .. . .. . . . . . . . .. ... ... ........ .... • • ..... ............ ............ ........ .

Therefore, we have Uf = −µk mg cos θ 1 2 − k = mg Substituting all of these relations into the Principle of Work and Energy yields mg − mg sin θ − µk mg cos θ = Solving for v , we have v= 4 (1 − sin θ − µk cos θ) g 3 3 mv 2 4 =⇒ g (1 − sin θ − µk cos θ) = 32 v 4 ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
