AP M 1993 MC 5 001 10.0 points If F1 is the magnitude of the force exerted by the Earth on a satellite in orbit about the Earth and F2 is the magnitude of the force exerted by the satellite on the Earth, then which of the following is true? 1. F1 F2 . 2. F2 F1 . 3. F1 = F2 . correct 4. F2 > F1 . 5. F1 > F2 . Explanation: The forces must be equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. Concept 05 E12 002 10.0 points Consider a baseball bat hitting a ball. Which of the following is correct? 1. Both slow down. 2. The baseball bat slows down, and the ball speeds up. 3. None of these correct 4. The baseball bat speeds up, and the ball slows down. 5. Both speed up. Explanation: A baseball exerts an external force on the bat (opposite to the bats motion) which decelerates the oncoming bat. Whether the ball will speed up or slow down is dependent on the direction of its velocity.

Concept 05 E20 003 10.0 points Ken and Joanne are astronauts oating some distance apart in space. They are joined by a safety cord whose ends are tied around their waists. If Ken starts pulling on the cord, what will happen? 1. Joanne will move toward Ken while Ken remains stationary. 2. Neither will move. 3. The move toward each other. correct 4. Ken will move toward Joanne while Joanne remains stationary. Explanation: Both will move. Kens pull on the rope is transmitted to Joanne, causing her to accelerate toward him. By Newtons third law, the rope pulls back on Ken, causing him to accelerate toward Joanne. Conceptual 04 07 004 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points Tracy (of mass 46 kg) and Tom (of mass 67 kg) are standing at rest in the center of the roller rink, facing each other, free to move. Tracy pushes o Tom with her hands and remains in contact with Toms hands, applying a constant force for 0.45 s. Tracy moves 0.3 m during this time. When she stops pushing o Tom, she moves at a constant speed. What is Tracys constant acceleration during her time of contact with Tom? Correct answer: 2.96296 m/s2 . Explanation: Let : d = 0.3 m and t = 0.45 s . 1 Since d = a t2 , 2 a= 2 (0.3 m) 2d = = 2.96296 m/s2 . 2 t (0.45 s)2

Version PREVIEW Newtons 3rd Law Friction Johnson (84248) 005 (part 2 of 4) 10.0 points What is Tracys nal speed after this contact? Correct answer: 1.33333 m/s. Explanation: Let : a = 2.96296 m/s2 t = 0.45 s . and

By Newtons third law, the forces have the 1 same magnitude, so a . m 1 But v = a t , so Tom has a smaller m acceleration and nal velocity because he is more massive. Conceptual forces 02 008 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Consider the following statement made regarding a book at rest on a level table: The two forces exerted on the book are the normal force directed up and the weight of the book directed down. These are equal and opposite to one another. By Newtons third law they are an actionreaction pair, so the normal force is always equal to the weight of the book. Do you agree with the statement? 1. Disagree; if an additional force acts down on the book, the normal force must also counter this extra force. correct 2. Agree; a normal force only exerts enough force to keep the object from falling through. The normal force and weight are always equal, even when other forces are present. 3. Agree; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction (Newtons third law). Since gravity pulls down on the book, to be equal and opposite the force of gravity must equal the normal force. 4. Disagree; the weight must be slightly greater than the normal force to keep the book in contact with the table. However, the forces are an action-reaction force pair because they are acting on one object. Explanation: If we were to put a weight on the book, the normal force would not be simply the weight of the book as the statement implies (see part 2). Note: This force pair is not a third law

v = a t = (2.96296 m/s2 ) (0.45 s) = 1.33333 m/s . 006 (part 3 of 4) 10.0 points What force was applied to Tracy during this time? Correct answer: 136.296 N. Explanation: Let : m = 46 kg and a = 2.96296 m/s2 . F = ma = (46 kg) (2.96296 m/s2 ) = 136.296 N . 007 (part 4 of 4) 10.0 points What is correct about Toms motion? 1. Toms acceleration is greater. 2. The force acting on Tom is greater than the force acting on Tracy. 3. Toms acceleration is smaller. correct 4. Toms nal velocity is greater than Tracys. Explanation:

Calculate the acceleration of the rst block. Correct answer: 6.86182 m/s2 . Explanation: Given : m1 = 3.22 kg , m2 = 7.52 kg . and

Let the direction of acceleration as indicated in the gure be positive. The net force on the system is simply the weight of m2 . Fnet = m2 g = 37.24 N . From Newtons second law, Fnet = m2 g = (m1 + m2 ) a . Solving for a, a= m2 g m1 + m2 3.8 kg = 2.7 kg + 3.8 kg = 5.72923 m/s2 .

Since the cord is unstretchable, the rst block accelerates to the right at exactly the same rate a as the second (hanging) block accelerates downward. Also, the cords tension pulls the rst block to the right with exactly the same tension T as it pulls the second block upward. The only horizontal force acting on the rst block is the cords tension T , hence by Newtons Second Law
net m1 a = F1 =T.

Accelerated System 01 023 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A block of mass 3.22 kg lies on a frictionless horizontal surface. The block is connected by a cord passing over a pulley to another block of mass 7.52 kg which hangs in the air, as shown on the following picture. Assume the cord to be light (massless and weightless) and unstretchable and the pulley to have no friction and no rotational inertia. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 . 3.22 kg

The second block feels two vertical forces: The cords tension T (upward) and the blocks own weight W2 = m2 g (downward). Consequently,
net = m2 g T . m2 a = F2

Adding the two equations together, we arrive at (m1 + m2 ) a = m2 g , and hence a= m2 g m1 + m2 7.52 kg (9.8 m/s2 ) = 3.22 kg + 7.52 kg = 6.86182 m/s2 . 024 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points

Basic Concept: Newtons Second Law F =Ma Solution: The acceleration of m1 is obtained from the equation
2 v 2 v0 = 2 a (s s0 )

Because m1 and m2 are tied together with string, they have same the speed and the same acceleration, so the net force exerted on m2 is F2 = m2 a The net force on m1 is m1 a = m1 g T , so that T = m1 g m1 a.

Because m1 and m2 are tied together with a cord, they have same the speed and the same acceleration. Adding Eqs. 1 & 2 we have (m1 + m2 ) a = m1 g fk = m1 g m2 g so that m2 g = m1 g (m1 + m2 ) a .

034 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the magnitude of the tension in the cord? Correct answer: 16.5126 N. Explanation: Using Eq. 1 the tension T is T = m1 (g a) = (2.2 kg) (9.8 m/s2 2.29425 m/s2 ) = 16.5126 N or, using Eq. 2 and from Part 1, the tension T is T = m2 [a + g ] = (3.6 kg) [(2.29425 m/s2 ) + (0.233938) (9.8 m/s2 )] = 16.5126 N . Since the T is the same using Eqs. 1 & 2: Part 1, = 0.233938, is veried. Accelerating Down a Plane 03 035 10.0 points A block accelerates 3 m/s2 down a plane inclined at angle 27.0.

Solution: At the critical angle c , the magnitude of the static frictional force attains its maximum value s N . Since the block is at rest, the component of the gravitational force parallel to the incline is equal in magnitude to the frictional force m g sin c = fs = s N . (1)

10. fs = s m g sin Explanation: Below the critical angle, the block is still at rest. So by Newtons second law, it still remains true that the parallel component of the gravitational force is equal in magnitude to the static frictional force fs = m g sin .

Also the component of the gravitational force perpendicular to the incline is equal in magnitude to the normal force N = m g cos c . Combining (1) and (2) yields m g sin c = s m g cos c , or tan c = s c = tan s = arctan(0.48) = 25.641 . 042 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the magnitude of the static frictional force when < c . 1. fs = 0 2. fs = m g 3. fs = m g cos 1 s m g sin 2 1 5. fs = s m g cos 2 4. fs =

## Find the force of friction. Correct answer: 29.5889 N. Explanation:

Version PREVIEW Newtons 3rd Law Friction Johnson (84248) Recall that f = N . From F = 0 in the horizontal direction, one can see that N = F cos . Hence the force of friction is f = N = F cos = 29.5889 N . 046 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points The force, F , which keeps the block moving upwards with a constant velocity satises which equations? 1. F cos = m g + F sin 2. F cos = m g + F cos 3. F sin = m g + F sin 4. F sin = m g 5. F sin = m g F cos 6. F cos = m g 7. F cos = m g F sin 8. F cos = m g F cos 9. F sin = m g F sin 10. F sin = m g + F cos correct Explanation:

22

For constant velocity, acceleration is zero. Hence Fy = 0 = F sin m g F cos . The rst term is the applied upward force, the second term is the weight of the block, and the third term is the frictional force.
