4.27 (a) The resultant external force acting on this system having a total mass of 6.0 kg is
42 N directed horizontally toward the right. Thus, the acceleration produced is

ΣF 42 N
a= = = 7.0 m s2 horizontally to the right
m 6.0 kg

(b) Draw a free body diagram of the 3.0-kg block and apply Newton’s second law to
the horizontal forces acting on this block:

( )
ΣFx = m ax ⇒ 42 N − T = ( 3.0 kg) 7.0 m s2 , and therefore T = 21 N

(c) The force accelerating the 2.0-kg block is the force exerted on it by the 1.0-kg block.
Therefore, this force is given by:
r
( )
F = m a = ( 2.0 kg) 7.0 m s2 , or F = 14 N horizontally to the right

Thus, the force down the incline is F = m a = ( 2.0 kg) 6.4 m s2 = 13 N

(b) The net force on the trailer is also horizontal and given by

## ( ΣFx )trailer = +T = m trailerax = ( 300 kg) ( 2.15 m )

s2 = 645 N forw ard

(c) Consider the free-body diagrams of the car and trailer. The only horizontal force
acting on the trailer is T = 645 N forw ard , and this is exerted on the trailer by the
car. Newton’s third law then states that the force the trailer exerts on the car is
645 N tow ard the rear
The Laws of Motion 105

(d) The road exerts two forces on the car. These are F and nc shown in the free-body

Also, ΣFy

## 4.34 First, consider the 3.00-kg rising mass. ur ur

The forces on it are the tension, T, and T T
its weight, 29.4 N. With the upward

direction as positive, the second law Mass Mass
becomes
m1 = 3.00 kg + m2 = 5.00 kg

## T − 29.4 N = ( 3.00 kg) a (1)

w1 = 29.4 N w2 = 49.0 N
The forces on the falling 5.00-kg mass
are its weight and T, and its
acceleration has the same magnitude as
that of the rising mass. Choosing the
positive direction down for this mass,
gives
49 N − T = ( 5.00 kg) a (2)

4.35 When the block is on the verge of moving, the static friction force has a magnitude
fs = ( fs) m ax = µ sn .

## Since equilibrium still exists and the applied force is 75 N, we have

ΣFx = 75 N − fs = 0 or ( fs) m ax = 75 N

In this case, the normal force is just the weight of the crate, or n = m g . Thus, the
coefficient of static friction is

( f)
s m ax ( f)
s m ax 75 N
µs = = = = 0.38
n mg ( )
( 20 kg) 9.80 m s2
After motion exists, the friction force is that of kinetic friction, fk = µ kn

Since the crate moves with constant velocity when the applied force is 60 N, we find that
ΣFx = 60 N − fk = 0 or fk = 60 N . Therefore, the coefficient of kinetic friction is

fk f 60 N
µk = = k = = 0.31
n m g ( 20 kg) 9.80 m s2 ( )

## 4.37 (a) Since the crate has constant velocity, ax = ay = 0 .

Applying Newton’s second law:
ΣFx = F cos20.0° − fk = m ax = 0 , or fk = ( 300 N ) cos20.0° = 282 N
and ΣFy = n − F sin 20.0° − w = 0 , or
n = ( 300 N ) sin 20.0° + 1000 N = 1.10 × 103 N
f 282 N
The coefficient of friction is then µ k = k = = 0.256
n 1.10 × 103 N

## The friction force now becomes fk = µ kn = ( 0.256)( 897 N ) = 230 N

w
Therefore, ΣFx = F cos20.0° − fk = m ax =   ax and the acceleration is

Perpendicular to the plane, we have equilibrium, so

fk 9.37 N
Then, µk = = = 0.368
n 25.5 N

## (d) Finally, v2 = v02 + 2ax ( ∆x) gives

For the 7.00 kg block, we have ur

n = ( 68.6 N ) cos37.0° = 54.8 N , and w = 118 N
w = 68.6 N
f = µ kn = ( 0.250)( 54.8 N ) = 13.7 N

Taking up the incline as the positive direction and applying the second law to the 7.00
kg block gives ΣFx = T − f − ( 68.6 N )sin 37.0° = ( 7.00 kg) a, or

## Solving Equations (1) and (2) simultaneously yields a = 3.30 m s2 .

4.57 On the level surface, the normal force exerted on the sled by the ice equals the total
weight, or n = 600 N. Thus, the friction force is

f = µ kn = ( 0.050)( 600 N ) = 30 N

## Hence, the second law yields ΣFx = − f = m ax , or

ax = = =
(
− f − f − ( 30 N ) 9.80 m s

)
= − 0.49 m s2

The Laws of Motion 109

4.58 (a) For the suspended block, ΣFy = T − 50.0 N = 0 , so the tension in the rope is
T = 50.0 N . Then, considering the horizontal forces on the 100-N block, we find

ΣFx = T − fs = 0 , or fs = T = 50.0 N

## (b) If the system is on the verge of slipping, fs = ( fs) m ax = µ sn . Therefore,

fs 50.0 N
the required coefficient of friction is µ s = = = 0.500
n 100 N

(c) If µ k = 0.250 , then the friction force acting on the 100-N block is

fk = µ kn = ( 0.250)(100 N ) = 25.0 N

Since the system is to move with constant velocity, the net horizontal force on the
100-N block must be zero, or ΣFx = T − fk = T − 25.0 N = 0 . The required tension in
the rope is T = 25.0 N . Now, considering the forces acting on the suspended block
when it moves with constant velocity, ΣFy = T − w = 0 , giving the required weight of
this block as w = T = 25.0 N

(b) The time required for the first sled to return to the bottom of the incline is the same
as the time needed to go up, that is, t= 0.890 s. In this time, the second sled must
travel down the entire 10.0 m length of the incline. The needed initial velocity is

system, the tension in the connecting rope is an

4.66 Before he enters the water, the diver is in free-fall with an acceleration of 9.80 m s2
