A block of mass 8.60 kg is pulled along a horizontal frictionless surface by a cord that exerts a force of 33 N at an angle 29.40 degrees from the horizontal. What is the magnitude of the normal force exerted on the mass by the floor? I solved for the acceleration, which was 3...

blocks 1 and 2 of masses 2 kg and 4kg, respectively, are connected by a light string, as shown above. These blocks are further connected to a block of mass 3kg by another light string that passes overr a pully of negligible mass and friction. Blocks 1 and 2 move with a ...

A force of 9.4N pulls horizontally on a 1.2-kg block that slides on a rough, horizontal surface. This block is connected by a horizontal string to a second block of mass m2 = 2.00kg on the same surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction is μk = 0.25 for both blocks. ...

A block weighing 71.5 N rests on a plane inclined at 24.1° to the horizontal. The coefficient of the static and kinetic frictions are 0.26 and 0.13 respectively. What is the minimum magnitude of the force F, parallel to the plane, that will prevent the block from slipping? B)...

Classical Mechanics Physics
A block of mass m= 3 kg is initially at rest on a horizontal surface. At time t=0, we begin pushing on it with a horizontal force that varies with time as F(t)=βt2, where β= 1.2 N/s2. We stop pushing at time t1=5 s [F(t)=0 for t>t1]. (a) First, assume the surface ...

A pendulum with a bob of mass 30g is lifted to height of 5.00cm above its lowest point and allowed to fall so that collides elastically with a block of mass 20g that rests on a smooth horizontal floor. The block stops 5 seconds after the collision. Assuming no sound is ...

A block of mass m = 4 kg slides along a horizontal table when it encounters the free end of a horizontal spring of spring constant k = 14 N/m. The spring is initially on its equilibrium state, defined when its free end is at x=0 . Right before the collision, the block is ...
