Show all of your work . The three problems are not equally weighted in the grade. 1. A car “hydroplanes” off the road and strikes a tree. Neglecting the frictional forces of the tires, the only force acting on the car is F as shown. Subsequent analysis of the scene indicates that the car experienced an angular acceleration of 3.6 rad/sec 2 after striking the tree. The car body weighs 1600 lb and can be assumed to be a uniform rectangular shape with its center of mass located at G body . The engine weighs 500 lb, can be approximated as a 2 ft wide by 4 ft long rectangular shape, and has its center of mass located at G engine . Determine the mass moment of inertia of the car about the center of mass G car . Estimate the magnitude of the force F.
