PHYS2014 Fall 2010 Benton OSU Physics Dept. 6-1 Physics 2014: General Physics I Solutions to Homework Assignment 6 Due: Friday, 15 October 2010 at the beginning of your Recitation session. 1. A 0.2 g bug is sitting at the edge of a 12” (30.48 cm) diameter phonograph turntable that is rotating at 33.33 rpm (revolutions per minute). What is the minimum coefficient of static friction, μ s , needed to keep the bug from sliding off? Solution: First convert all units to SI units. M bug = 0.0002 kg, r =0.1524 cm, 33.33 rpm = 0.55 rev/s. ω = 2 π f = 3.49 rad/s. The bug is being held onto the turntable only by the force of friction, so the force of friction must be equal to the centripetal force. 2 f s N s f s F F mg F m r m μ μ ω μ = = = g m = ( ) 2 2 2 2 3.49rad s 0.1524m 0.19 9.8m s s r r g ω ω μ = = = 2. A horse pulls a 700 kg cart at a constant speed of 2 m/s up a hill having a constant slope of 10 ° with respect to the horizontal. a) If the coefficient of rolling friction of the cart is 0.05, how much work does the horse do in 5 minutes? b) How much of that work is done to overcome friction? Solution: We’re asked to find the work done by the horse. W F s = ⋅Δ arrowrightnosp arrowrightnosp We’re not given the distance, but since the horse is moving at a constant speed we can find it easily: s v t W F v t Δ = Δ = ⋅ Δ arrowrightnosp arrowrightnosp arrowrightnosp arrowrightnosp Since the horse is moving at a constant speed, there is zero acceleration and the sum of the forces must equal zero. Let’s start by rotating the coordinate system by 10 ° counterclockwise.

Compare your estimates to the values printed on the back cover of your text book. Solution: a) From the back cover of our textbook, we find that the mean radial distance between the Earth and the Sun is 1.50 × 10 11 m.

What students are saying

• 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
