Problem 4.5 [Difficulty: 2] Given: Car sliding to a stop Find: Initial speed; skid time Solution: Governing equations: Σ F x M a x = F f μ W = Assumptions: Dry friction; neglect air resistance Given data L 200 ft = μ 0.7 = Σ F x F f = μ W = M a x = W g a x = W g 2 t x d d 2 = or 2 t x d d 2 μ g = Integrating, and using I.C. V = V 0 at t = 0 Hence dx dt μ g t c 1 + = μ g t V 0 + = (1) Integrating again x 1 2 g t 2 V 0 t + c 2 + = 1 2 g t 2 V 0 t + = since x = 0 at t = 0 (2) We have the final state, at which x f L = and dx dt 0 = at t t f = From Eq. 1 dx dt 0 = μ g t f V 0 + = so t f V 0 μ g = Substituting into Eq. 2

    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.
