PHY2053 – Section 7392 Quiz #5 Friday, February 13, 2004 Name____________ KEY ______________ UFID___________________ Please read the problem carefully and be sure to show all of your work. Partial credit will be given. An object with a mass m 1 = 30.0 kg, resting on a frictionless horizontal table, is connect to a cable that passes over a frictionless pulley and then fastened to a hanging object with a mass of m 2 = 10.0 kg. What is the value of coefficient of kinetic friction ( µ k ) between m 1 and the table that will keep the masses at constant velocity assuming they are already

Unformatted text preview: moving? m 1 m 2 Solution: Mass 1: T - f = 0 since a = 0 Also, f = µ k m 1 g Combining these gives: T = k m 1 g Mass 2: m 2 g - T = since a = 0 Substituting T = k m 1 g into the equation for mass 2 gives m 2 g - k m 1 g = Solving for k : k = 1 2 m m = 0.33 Note on the hazards of ‘cut and paste’: The problem explicitly (and incorrectly) stated that the table was frictionless, so I also accepted the answer k = 0....

### 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.
