Unformatted text preview: baum (lmb2768) – HW05 – distler – (56295) 1 This print-out should have 21 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. There are various ways to do part 2 of the ”Wind and Pendulum” problem. The easiest is to find the angle at which the three forces on the ball (tension, gravity and F) add up to zero. In part 1 of ”Pulling Two Masses”, you are asked about the ”work done against fric- tion”. This is very funny phraseology. The friction does negative work, and what you are being asked-for is the magnitude (a positive number) of the work done by friction. 001 10.0 points A block sliding on a horizontal surface has an initial speed of 0.5 m/s. The block travels a distance of 1 m as it slows to a stop. What distance would the block have trav- eled if its initial speed had been 1 m/s? 1. 1 m 2. 2 m 3. 3 m 4. 4 m correct 5. more information is needed to answer the question 6. 0.5 m Explanation: W nc =- f k L = 0- 1 2 mv 2- μmg L =- 1 2 mv 2 L = v 2 2 μg So the distance is proportional to the square of the initial speed. 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A ball having mass 1 . 1 kg is connected by a string of length 0 . 8 m to a pivot point and held in place in a vertical position. A constant wind force of magnitude 17 . 85 N blows from left to right. Pivot Pivot F F (a) (b) H m m L L If the mass is released from the vertical po- sition, what maximum height above its initial position will it attain? Assume that the string does not break in the process. The accelera- tion of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 1 . 1724 m. Explanation: Let : m = 1 . 1 kg , L = 0 . 8 m , F = 17 . 85 N , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Take the original point to be the one where the ball is released and the final point where its upward swing stops at height H . Then the horizontal displacement is x = L 2- ( L- H ) 2 Since the force is purely horizontal, it does work W = F · d s = F 2 LH- H 2 . Applying the work-energy theorem, ( K + U ) i + W wind = ( K + U ) f 0 + 0 + F 2 LH- H 2 = 0 + mg H . H = 2 L 1 + mg F 2 · F 2 F 2 = 2 LF 2 F 2 + ( mg ) 2 baum (lmb2768) – HW05 – distler – (56295) 2 = 2 (0 . 8 m) (17 . 85 N) 2 (17 . 85 N) 2 + (1 . 1 kg) 2 (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) 2 = 1 . 1724 m . 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What will be the equilibrium height of the mass? Correct answer: 0 . 38643 m. Explanation: Considering components of the force equi- librium F = 0,- T sin θ + F = 0 and T cos θ- mg = 0 . Dividing these, tan θ = F mg θ = arctan F mg = arctan 17 . 85 N (1 . 1 kg) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 58 . 8713 ◦ , so the equilibrium height is h = L (1- cos θ ) = (0 . 8 m)(1- cos 58 . 8713 ◦ ) = . 38643 m ....
