The block is released from rest when the spring is unstretched, and the pulley is fric- tionless. The block moves 20 cm down the incline before coming to rest. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 100 N / m 2 k g 2 c m 37 Find the coefficient of kinetic friction be- tween block and incline. Correct answer: 0 . 114709 . Explanation: Given : m = 2 kg , = 37 , k = 100 N / m , and x = 20 cm . The work done by the friction force is W f = ( f x cos180 ) x =- k n x =- k ( mg cos ) x Applying the work-kinetic energy theorem, W nc = W f = K + U s + U g . Since the block stars from rest and comes to a stop,- mg x cos = 0 + 1 2 k ( x ) 2- mg x sin . Thus =- k x 2 mg cos + tan =- (100 N / m)(0 . 2 m) 2(2 kg)(9 . 8 m / s 2 )cos37 + tan37 =- (0 . 638845) + (0 . 753554) = . 114709 . Return to the Shuttle 09:01, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A(n) 65 kg astronaut becomes separated from the shuttle, while on a space walk. She finds herself 50 m away from the shuttle and mov- ing with zero speed relative to the shuttle. She has a(n) 0 . 65 kg camera in her hand and decides to get back to the shuttle by throw- ing the camera at a speed of 12 m / s in the direction away from the shuttle. How long will it take for her to reach the shuttle? Answer in minutes. Correct answer: 6 . 94446 min. Explanation: Let : M = 65 kg , m = 0 . 65 kg , d = 50 m , and v = 12 m / s . Because of conservation of linear momentum, we have 0 = M V + m (- v ) mv = M V Version One Homework 7 Heinz 81204 Oct 07, 2004 2 where V is the velocity of the astronaut and it has a direction toward the shuttle. V = mv M = (0 . 65 kg)(12 m / s) 65 kg = 0 . 12 m / s . And the time it takes for her to reach the shuttle t = d V = 50 m . 12 m / s 1 min 60 s = 6 . 94446 min .
