Homework #4 Due midnight Sunday October 16. 1. Answer these True/False questions. (No explanations required.) (a) The normal force exerted on a particular object always has the same magnitude. (b) The normal force is always perpendicular to the surface that makes the contact. (c) As an object is stretched further, the elastic force usually gets stronger. (d) Sliding friction is usually bigger than the maximum static friction. (e) Friction always is opposite to the direction of motion of the contact point. (f) The force of friction is usually larger than the normal force. (g) The force of gravity is proportional to the mass. This is why all objects experience the same acceleration due to gravity. 2. In the force diagram of the snowboarder on the second-to-last page, what type of force does F 1 represent? F 3 ? F 4 ? 3. The top figure on the last page shows snapshots of a golf swing taken at regular intervals. Call the forward direction of the swing the positive
