Example (Sample 7-5) Initially stationary crate of mass m=15.0 kg is pulled, via a cable, a distance d=5.70 m up a frictionless ramp to a height of 2.50 m, where it stops. a) work done by gravitation force Fg? W = F d = mgd cos(90 + θ ) cos(90 + θ ) = sin( θ ) sin( θ ) = h d W = mgd h d = mgh = (15.0 kg )(9.8 m / s 2 )(2.5 m ) = 368 J b) work done on the crate by Tension T Δ K = W g + W T = 0 W T = W g = 368 J

Work and Path Alice and Bill, who happen to have the same mass, both to climb to the top of a mountain. Bill takes the steep path straight up, but Alice takes the path that gently winds around the mountain, and it is 8 times longer than the steep path.

    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.
