Chapter 8 237 P8.51 m = mass of pumpkin R = radius of silo top Fm a nm g m v R rr =⇒ = cos θ 2 When the pumpkin first loses contact with the surface, n = 0. Thus, at the point where it leaves the surface: vR g 2 = cos . FIG. P8.51 Choose U g = 0 in the 90 0 . plane. Then applying conservation of energy for the pumpkin-Earth system between the starting point and the point where the pumpkin leaves the surface gives KU KU mv mgR mgR fg fig i += + + 1 2 0 2 cos Using the result from the force analysis, this becomes 1 2 mRg mgR mgR cos cos θθ , which reduces to cos = 2 3 , and gives == ° cos . 1 23 482 bg as the angle at which the pumpkin will lose contact with the surface.
