## A. INCLINE WITH FRICTION (10 points)

A block of mass 𝑚 = 5.00 𝑘𝑔 slides down an incline angled at 𝜃 = 30∘ . The surface between the block and the
incline has a coefficient of kinetic friction, 𝜇𝑘 = 0.322.

1. Identify the forces acting on the object by drawing the free body diagram of these forces. [2]

𝑚𝑔𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃
𝑚𝑔𝑐𝑜𝑠𝜃

2. Apply Newton’s Law to derive the equation of the total forces for both the parallel and perpendicular direction
relative to the incline. [2]
Σ𝐹⊥ = 𝑛 − 𝑚𝑔𝑐𝑜𝑠𝜃 = 0
Σ𝐹∥ = 𝑚𝑔𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 − 𝑓𝑠 = 𝑚𝑔𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 − 𝜇𝑘 𝑚𝑔𝑐𝑜𝑠𝜃 = 𝑚𝑎

## 3. Determine the acceleration of the system. [3]

𝑚𝑎 = 𝑚𝑔(𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 − 𝜇𝑘 𝑐𝑜𝑠𝜃)

𝑎 = 𝑔(𝑠𝑖𝑛𝜃 − 𝜇𝑘 𝑐𝑜𝑠𝜃) = 9.8[𝑠𝑖𝑛30 − (0.322) cos(30)] = 𝟐. 𝟏𝟕

4. What is the coefficient of static friction be if the block were to be initially not moving and will stay at rest? [3]
It won’t move if Σ𝐹∥ = 0.

7. What coefficient of static friction between the 100. N block and the table is required to hold the system in
equilibrium? [2]

8. If 𝜇𝑘 = 0.250 between the 100. N block and the table, what hanging weight should replace the 50.0 N block to
allow the system to move at constant speed once it starts moving? [3]
Forces should be balanced for both blocks

C. ACCELERATION OF CAR (10 points)
A 3.0 kg object hangs at one end of a rope that is attached to a support
on a railroad car. When the car accelerates to the right, the rope makes
an angle 𝜃 = 4.0∘ with the vertical, as shown in Figure C.

## D. HIT THE BRAKES (10 points)

𝑚
A car is initially moving at an initial velocity of 𝑣𝑖 = 25 𝑠 and sees a kitten on the road. The driver immediately hits
the brakes until it skids to a stop. The mass of the car is 235 kg.

13. What force could have done work to make the car stop? [1]
Friction via brakes.
𝑚
14. If the car decelerated at a constant rate of 𝑎 = −6.0 𝑠2 and the kitten was initially 55 m from the car, will the car
run over the kitten? Your solution decides the fate of the baby cat. [3]

## E. MOTOCROSS (10 points)

A daredevil on a motorcycle leaves the end of a ramp with a speed of
35.0 m/s as in Figure E. His speed is 33.0 m/s upon reaching the
maximum height. Ignore nonconservative forces and consider the
ramp to be at y = 0.
17. Will total mechanical energy be conserved if we ignore air
resistance and friction? Explain briefly. [2]
Yes. Nonconservative forces are ignored. Figure E. Motorcycle man.

20. Explain what will happen to the speed of the motorcycle if air resistance were not to be ignored. From your
answer, what can you say about the work done by air resistance? [2]
It will be reduced. Work done by air resistance is work done by a nonconservative force.
