a stop.
3 (a) Find the force of friction on the block. The normal force on the block due to the table is mg =
(2 kg)(9.8 m/s2 ) = 19.6 N.
FK = µK FN = (0.2)(19.6 N) = 3.9 N 4 m/s 2kg

W = F ∆x on the block, and steals it all away by the time
it stops. Thus
F ∆x = 16 J =⇒ ∆x = 3 6. 3.9 N

two wedges as shown. What is the force exerted by the left
wedge on the meterstick? Assume the center of mass of the
stick is right in the middle.

0.8m Let FL and FR be the forces due to the pivots: FL + FR = 1 N. Put the pivot at the
center of mass, and the torque due to FL is τL = FL (0.5 m) clockwise and the torque
due to FR is τR = FR (0.3 m) counterclockwise. Since this is in equilibrium, the torques
must sum to zero, so

FL (0.5 m) = FR (0.3 m) =⇒ FL = FR = 0.6FR

And since FL + FR = 1 =⇒ FR = 1 − FL , FL = 0.6(1 − FL ) =⇒ 1.6FL = 0.6 =⇒
FL = 0.6/1.6 = 0.375 N Page 4 !"# $ %&'()&*+, . /,0 &1 2/(3%+ ! (4 4566 &'+/7 .8 , %(*3/ ,*7 9,./ ,4 4%&2*# :%/ 1&'9/
