Homework set 7, due Monday, October 17, 11:30 am Following problems from Analytical Mechanics by Fowles & Cassiday 1. 5.1 (20 points) 5.1 (a) The non-inertial observer believes that he is in equilibrium and that the net force acting on him is zero. The scale exerts an upward force, N r , whose value is equal to the scale reading --- the “weight,” W’, of the observer in the accelerated frame. Thus 0 0 N mg mA + - = r r r 0 5 0 4 4 g N mg mA N mg m N mg - - = - - = - = 5 5 4 4 W N mg W ′ = = = 150 .
