1 Assignment - Forces Reading: Chapter 4 Objectives/HW The student will be able to: HW: 1 State Newton s 1 st and 2 nd Laws of Motion and apply these laws to 1 5 physical situations in order to determine what forces act on an object and to explain the object s resulting behavior. 2 Recognize and state the proper SI unit of force and give its 6 10 equivalence in fundamental units and use the relation F net = ma to solve problems. 3 Recognize the difference between weight and mass and convert from one to the other. 4 State and utilize Newton s 3 rd Law to solve related problems Understand and utilize the concept of the normal force to solve related problems. 6 Understand and utilize the relation between friction force, normal force, and coefficient of friction for both cases: static and kinetic. 7 State the factors which influence air resistance and describe qualitatively the effect of each factor on the magnitude of the frictional force. And explain what is meant by terminal velocity. 8 Resolve forces into components using trigonometry and use the results to solve related force problems. 9 Apply the concept of force components to objects on an incline and solve related problems Homework Problems 1. Using Newton s Laws explain why you must push harder on the pedals of a single-speed bicycle to start it moving than to keep it moving with a constant velocity. 2. Suppose you have a nearly empty jar of salsa that you want to pour into a bowl. Of course you will turn the jar upside down but sometimes this is not enough to get the salsa out of the jar. Usually you will end up not only turning the jar over but also shaking it up and down. Using Newton s Laws explain why the salsa comes out of the jar. 3. The Pioneer 10 spacecraft has left our Solar System and is traveling at a speed of 29,000 mph (and has been doing so for years). Explain why this object is moving so fast although it ran out of fuel long ago. 4. If you are in a car that is struck from behind, you can receive a serious neck injury called whiplash. (a) Using Newton s Laws explain what happens to the person s head. (b) Using Newton s Laws explain how a headrest helps to reduce whiplash injuries.

2 5. When the space shuttle is launched from Earth, a constant force is applied and the shuttle accelerates upward. As the flight progresses, its rate of acceleration increases. Explain using Newton s Laws. 6. A net force of 150 N causes a certain person to accelerate 1.20 m/s 2. Determine the person s mass. 7. A racecar has a mass of 710 kg. It starts from rest and travels 40 m in 3.0 s. What magnitude is the net force on the car? 8. A net braking force of 9000 N is used to stop a 1500 kg car with initial speed 20 m/s. Determine the distance to bring the car to a complete halt. 9. Two forces act on a falling skydiver with mass 100 kg: a downward gravity force and an upward air resistance (friction) force. Suppose the net force on the skydiver is this means the gravity force is 670 N greater than the friction force. (a) Determine the resulting acceleration. After the parachute opens the acceleration is 5.0 m/s (b) Determine the net force at this point. (c) Which force is larger now and by how much? 10. Suppose you hook a 1.5 kg fish while using line that is rated at 38 N (it can only sustain that much force before breaking).

Safety engineers estimate that an elevator can hold 20 persons of 75 kg average mass. The elevator itself has a mass of 500 kg.

What is the greatest acceleration that the elevator s motor can produce without breaking the cable?

3 16. An elevator car that weighs 3.0 kn is accelerated upward at 1.3 m/s 2. What force does the cable exert to give it this acceleration? 17.

If the person s hand exerts a force of , what will be the resulting acceleration of the ball? (You must include the effect of gravity.) 19. Mules are smart but stubborn. Once upon a time a particularly smart and particularly stubborn mule refused to pull its owner s cart and gave the following argument: I refuse to pull the cart because it is impossible to do so according to Newton s laws of motion. According to the 2 nd Law it is necessary to have a net force in order for the cart to accelerate. According to the 3 rd Law no matter how hard I pull the cart forward, the cart will pull an equal amount backward and therefore the net force will be zero and the cart will not move. Even if I could pull a million Newtons forward, the cart would pull a million Newtons backward and so I refuse to even try! What is the flaw in the mule s argument? 20. When you drop a 0.40 kg apple, Earth exerts a force on it that accelerates it toward the Earth s surface. Assuming Newton s Laws are true (and they are!) the Earth must also accelerate toward the apple. Given its mass is x kg, determine the rate at which the Earth accelerates upward toward the falling apple. 21.

The maximum force a grocery sack can withstand and not rip is 250 N. If 20 kg of groceries are lifted from the floor to the table with an acceleration of 5.0 m/s 2, will the sack hold? 24. A person stands on a bathroom scale in an elevator at rest on the 64 th floor of a building. The scale then reads 836 N.
