Nguyen, Thanh – Homework 9 – Due: Oct 5 2007, 7:00 pm – Inst: D Weathers 1 This print-out should have 10 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A time-varying net force acting on a 1 . 7 kg particle causes the object to have a displace- ment given by x = a + b t + d t 2 + e t 3 , where a = 2 . 5 m , b = 1 . 2 m / s , d = - 3 . 4 m / s 2 , and e = 0 . 9 m / s 3 , with x in meters and t in seconds. Find the work done on the particle in the first 3 . 8 s of motion. Correct answer: 173 . 761 J. Explanation: Since the force is time dependent W Z x f x i ~ F · d~x = Z x f x i m a dx = m Z x f x i d v dt dx = m Z x f x i d v dx d x dt dx = m Z v f v i v dv = 1 2 m v 2 f - 1 2 m v 2 i . Therefore work done on the particle is the change in kinetic energy. For this case, W = Δ K = K f - K i = 1 2 m ( v 2 f - v 2 i ) , where the velocity is found by differentiating the displacement: v = d x dt = b + 2 d t + 3 e t 2 v i = 1 . 2 m / s , and (1) v f = (1 . 2 m / s) + 2 ( - 3 . 4 m / s 2 ) (3 . 8 s) +3 (0 . 9 m / s 3 ) (3 . 8 s) 2 = 14 . 348 m / s , (2) where t i = 0 s and t f = 3 . 8 s . Evaluation of the velocity at the initial and final times gives the desired result. W = K f - K i = 1 2 m ( v 2 f - v 2 i ) = 1 2 (1 . 7 kg) h (14 . 348 m / s) 2 - (1 . 2 m / s) 2 i = (174 . 985 J) - (1 . 224 J) = 173 . 761 J . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Robin pushes a wheelbarrow by exerting a 114 N force horizontally.

### 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.
