Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 6 m long, uniform ladder leans against a frictionless wall and makes an angle of 64 . 5 with the floor. The ladder has a mass 29 . 2 kg. A 75 . 92 kg man climbs 82% of the way to the top of the ladder when it slips and falls to the floor. What is the coefficient of static friction be- tween the ladder and the floor? Correct answer: 0 . 348722. Explanation: Let : M = 29 . 2 kg , M m = 75 . 92 kg , R = 0 . 82 , and = 64 . 5 . summationdisplay F x = 0 requires the wall to exert a force equal in magnitude to the frictional force of ( M m + M ) g exerted by the floor. Applying torques on the ladder about the point where it touches the floor, ( M + M m ) g sin parenleftbigg M 2 + R M m parenrightbigg g cos = 0 2 ( M + M m ) sin = ( M 2 R M m ) cos = ( M 2 R M m ) cos 2 ( M + M m ) sin = [29 . 2 kg 2(0 . 82)(75 . 92 kg)] cos 64 . 5 2(29 . 2 kg + 75 . 92 kg) sin64 . 5 = . 348722 . 002 10.0 points Two masses of 25 kg and 16 kg are suspended by a pulley that has a radius of 14 cm and a mass of 8 kg. The cord has a negligible mass and causes the pulley to rotate without slipping. The pulley rotates without friction. The masses start from rest 1 . 3 m apart. 1 . 3 m 14 cm 8 kg 25 kg 16 kg Determine the speeds of the two masses as they pass each other. Treat the pulley as a uniform disk. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 1 . 59625 m / s. Explanation: Let : M = 8 kg , R = 14 cm , m 1 = 25 kg , m 2 = 16 kg , and h = 1 . 3 m . From conservation of energy K 1 + K 2 + K disk = U m 1 v 2 2 + m 2 v 2 2 + M v 2 4 = ( m 1 m 2 ) g h 2 (2 m 1 + 2 m 2 + M ) v 2 = 2 ( m 1 m 2 ) g h, where h 2 is the height. Taking no slipping into account, v = radicalBigg 2 ( m 1 m 2 ) g h 2 ( m 1 + m 2 ) + M = radicalBigg 2 (25 kg 16 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) 2 (25 kg + 16 kg) + 8 kg 1 . 3 m = 1 . 59625 m / s . markowitz (am45362) HW08 distler (56295) 2 keywords: 003 10.0 points A rod of mass m and length L is hinged with a frictionless hinge at one end. The moment of inertia about the center of mass is 1 12 mL 2 . Attached to the end of the rod opposite to the hinge there is a mass of magnitude 2 m . The rod is released from rest in the horizontal position. L m 2 m What is the speed of the mass 2 m when the rod passes through the vertical position? Consider the mass at the end of the rod to be a point particle....
