Choosing right to be the positive direction, we have(29(29122cos59.0 Ncos70.033.0 N1.83 m/s7.00 kgxxxFFFammaθΣ-==° -== -The minus sign indicates that the horizontal acceleration points to the left.12.REASONINGThe net force ΣFhas a horizontal component ΣFxand a vertical component ΣFy. Since these components are perpendicular, the Pythagorean theorem applies (Equation 1.7), and the magnitude of the net force is (29(2922xyFFFΣ=Σ+ Σ. Newton’s second law allows us to express the components of the net force acting on the ball in terms of its mass and the horizontal and vertical components of its acceleration: , xxyyFmaFmaΣ=Σ=(Equations 4.2a and 4.2b). SOLUTIONCombining the Pythagorean theorem with Newton’s second law, we obtain the magnitude of the net force acting on the ball: (29(29(29(29(29(29(2922222222220.430 kg810 m/s1100 m/s590 NxyxyxyFFFmamamaaΣ=Σ+ Σ=+=+=+=+y+xFNF2F1Wθ+y+xFNF2F1cos θWF1sin θ 168FORCES AND NEWTON'S LAWS OF MOTION13.SSMREASONINGTo determine the acceleration we will use Newton’s second law ΣF= ma. Two forces act on the rocket, the thrust Tand the rocket’s weight W, which is mg = (4.50 × 105kg)(9.80 m/s2) = 4.41 × 106N. Both of these forces must be considered when determining the net force ΣF. The direction of the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net force.SOLUTIONIn constructing the free-body diagram for the rocket we choose upward and to the right as the positive directions. The free-body diagram is as follows:The xcomponent of the net force is(2966cos55.07.5010Ncos55.04.3010NxFTΣ=°=×° =×The ycomponent of the net force is(29666sin55.07.5010Nsin55.04.4110N1.7310NyFTWΣ=°-=×° -×=×The magnitudes of the net force and of the acceleration are(29(29(29(29(29(2922222266254.3010N1.7310N10.3 m/s4.5010kgxyxyFFFFFamΣ=Σ+ ΣΣ+ Σ×+×===×The direction of the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net force.
