A shopper in a supermarket pushes a loaded cart with a hor-
izontal force of 10 N. The cart has a mass of 30 kg. (a) How
far will it move in 3.0 s, starting from rest? (Ignore friction.)
(b) How far will it move in 3.0 s if the shopper places his
30-N child in the cart before he begins to push it?
25.A 2 000-kg car is slowed down uniformly from 20.0 m/s to5.00 m/s in 4.00 s. (a) What average force acted on thecar during that time, and (b) how far did the car travelduring that time?

Two packing crates of masses 10.0 kg and 5.00 kg are con-
nected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pul-
ley as in Figure P4.26. The 5.00-kg crate lies on a smooth
incline of angle 40.0 . Find the acceleration of the 5.00-kg
crate and the tension in the string.
28.An object of mass 2.0 kg starts from rest and slides downan inclined plane 80 cm long in 0.50 s. What net forceisacting on the object along the incline?
29.A 40.0-kg wagon is towed up a hill inclined at 18.5withrespect to the horizontal. The tow rope is parallel to theincline and has a tension of 140 N. Assume that thewagon starts from rest at the bottom of the hill, andneglect friction. How fast is the wagon going after moving80.0 m up the hill?

Assume that the three blocks portrayed in Figure P4.27
move on a frictionless surface and that a 42-N force acts
as shown on the 3.0-kg block. Determine (a) the accel-
eration given this system, (b) the tension in the cord
connecting the 3.0-kg and the 1.0-kg blocks, and (c) the
force exerted by the 1.0-kg block on the 2.0-kg block.

kg and is moving at
90.0 km/h. The engineer applies the brakes, resulting in
a net backward force of 1.87

brakes are held on for 30.0 s. (a) What is the
fi
nal speed
of the train? (b) How far does the train travel during this
period?

(a) An elevator of mass
m
moving upward has two forces
acting on it: the upward force of tension in the cable and
the downward force due to gravity. When the elevator is
accelerating upward, which is greater,
T
or
w
? (b) When
the elevator is moving at a constant velocity upward,
which is greater,
T
or
w
? (c) When the elevator is moving
upward,
but

acceleration
is
downward,
which
is greater,
T
or
w
? (d) Let the elevator have a mass of
1 500 kg and an upward acceleration of 2.5 m/s
