Question-1. A box of mass m is sliding along a horizontal surface.

Part A The box leaves position x=0 with speed v0. The box is slowed by a constant frictional force until it comes to rest at position x=x1.

Find the magnitude of the average frictional force that acts on the box. (Since you don’t know the coefficient of friction, don’t include it in your answer.)Express the frictional force in terms of m, v0, x1

Part B After the box comes to rest at position x1, a person starts pushing the box, giving it a speed v1.

When the box reaches position x2(wherex2 > x1), how much work has the person done on the box? Assume that the box reaches x2 after the person has accelerated it from rest to speedv1.Express the work in terms of m, v0, x1, x2, v1


Understand that conservative forces can be removed from the work integral by incorporating them into a new form of energy called potential energy that must be added to the kinetic energy to get the total mechanical energy.

The first part of this problem contains short-answer questions that review the work-energy theorem. In the second part we introduce the concept of potential energy. But for now, please answer in terms of the work-energy theorem.(PART-A to PART E)

Question 4.

Suppose our experimenter repeats his experiment on a planet more massive than Earth, where the acceleration due to gravity is g=30 m/s2. When he releases the ball from chin height without giving it a push, how will the ball’s behavior differ from its behavior on Earth? Ignore friction and air resistance. (Select all that apply.)

Question 5.

While a roofer is working on a roof that slants at 41.0 ∘ above the horizontal, he accidentally nudges his 95.0 N tool box, causing it to start sliding downward, starting from rest.

Part A If it starts 5.00 m from the lower edge of the roof, how fast will the toolbox be moving just as it reaches the edge of the roof if the kinetic friction force on it is 21.0 N?

Question 6.

A force parallel to the x-axis acts on a particle moving along the x-axis. This force produces a potential energy U(x) given by U(x)=α x4where α=1.16 J/m4 .

Part A What is the force when the particle is at position x = -0.660 m ?

Question 7


As you are trying to   move a heavy box of mass m, you realize that it is too heavy for you to lift by   yourself. There is no one around to help, so you attach an ideal pulley to   the box and a massless rope to the ceiling, which you wrap around the pulley.   You pull up on the rope to lift the box.


Use g for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity and   neglect friction forces.

Part A Once   you have pulled hard enough to start the box moving upward, what is the   magnitude F of the upward force you must apply to the rope to start   raising the box with constant velocity?

Express the   magnitude of the force in terms of m, the mass of the   box.

Part BConsider lifting a box of mass mto a height husing two different methods:   lifting the box directly or liftingthe box using a pulley (as in the previous   part).

What is {W_{rm d}}/{W_{rm p}}, the ratio   of the work done lifting the box directly to the work done lifting the box   with a pulley?

Express the ratio numerically.

Question 8

To be able to   interpret potential energy diagrams and predict the corresponding motion of a   particle.

Potential energy   diagrams for a particle are useful in predicting the motion of that particle.   These diagrams allow one to determine the direction of the force acting on   the particle at any point, the points of stable and unstable equilibrium, the   particle’s kinetic energy, etc.

Consider the   potential energy diagram shown. () The curve represents the value of potential   energy U as a function of the particle’s coordinate x. The horizontal   line above the curve represents the constant value of the total energy of the   particle E. The total energy E is the sum of kinetic ( K) and ….

Question 9

A roller coaster car may be approximated by a   block of mass (m) . The car, which starts from rest, is released at a height   (h) above the ground and slides along a frictionless track. The car   encounters a loop of radius (R), as shown. Assume that the initial height (h)   is great enough so that the car never loses contact with the track.

Find an expression for the kinetic energy of   the car at the top of the loop.
Express the kinetic energy in terms of m,g,h   and R

Find the minimum initial height (h) at which   the car can be released that still allows the car to stay in contact with the   track at the top of the loop.

Question 10

If a fish is attached to a vertical spring   and slowly lowered to its equilibrium position, it is found to stretch the   spring by an amount d

Express your answer   in terms of d.
