EXAM 2B – SOLUTIONS Page 1 of 1 Part II. Word Problems [30 pts each] 1) (A) Use conservation of total mechanical energy: 1 2 mv 2 = mgh h = v 2 2 g = 3.26 m = L (1 cos θ ) = 54.4 ° (B) At the bottom of the rope, F Net = T mg = mv 2 L . T = m ( g + v 2 / L ) = 901 N 2) Do (B) first! Energy conservation: E initial + W fric = E final mg ( d + x max ) fd = 1 2 kx max 2 Use quadratic formula: x max = 1.03 m (A) The elevator reaches maximum speed at a height y where force of gravity = spring force mg = k ( x max y ) or y = x max mg k Energy conservation again: E initial + W fric = E final mg ( d + x max ) fd = 1 2 mv max 2 + mg x max mg k
