Doing problems with “F=ma” Draw the free-body diagram carefully. You may need to know the direction of a from kinematics, before considering forces (for friction). Any axes will do, but some choices make the algebra simpler – set up equations for each direction. You need one (scalar) equation for each (scalar) unknown, in general (but, the mass will often cancel out).

Unformatted text preview: Friction is given by k. m F A Example Obtain an expression for the stopping distance for a skier moving down a slope with friction with an initial speed of v 1 . Find the distance given that k =0.18, v=20m/s and =5.0. d Increasing so that , the block slips, from which we get: f n mg s This is an easy method of measuring max = max tan = s Question : Can we calculate s ? M m Frictionless surfaces, ideal pulleys, etc. For what angle is the system in equilibrium? Summary Problems using Newtons Second Law: Set up free-body diagram, then and solve. , a F m = Practice Problems : Chapter 5 Problems: 43, 46 (ans: 31.7-48.6N ), (5 th ed) Problems 49, 53...
