Do not store equations in your calculator. You have to solve problems on your own; memorizing final algebraic expressions from homework assignments and just plugging numbers into them will not give you full credit. Leave all your work. ________________________________________________________________________________ In the figure below right, a 50.0 kg sphere is supported on a frictionless plane inclined at angle θ = 45.0° from the horizontal.

Unformatted text preview: φ is 20.0°. a) What is the tension in the cable? The ball is in static equilibrium. Hence the net torque acting on the ball is zero. We choose our rotational axis at the contact point between the ball and slope. The balance of torques equation yields -Tcos φ R + Mgsin θ R = 0 ⇒ T = Mgsin /cos = 369 N b) What is the normal force on the sphere from the slope? Since the ball is in equilibrium, the net force exerted on the ball is zero. The balance of forces equation in the horizontal direction leads to Tcos(-) – Nsin = 0 ⇒N=Tcos(θ-φ)/ sin = 473 N...

    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.

    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.
