velocity of magnitude 100 ms at an angle of 500 to the hotizontal The launch point is at the base of a ramp of hotizontal length 11 Z 5 Uquot m and height d2 360 m A plateau is located at the top of the ramp a Does the ball land on the ramp or the plateau When it lands what are the b magnitude and c angle of its displacement from the launch point Figure 440 Problem 45 Solution d a Let m 72 0600 be the slope of the ramp so y mx there We choose our coordinate 1 origin at the point of launch and use Eq 425 Thus 980 ms2x2 0600 2100 ms2c0s500 2 x y tan500 x which yields x 499 m This is less than

the angle of the ramp tan 1m 3109 Chapter 4 Problem 50 Two seconds after being projected from ground level a projectile is displaced 40 m horizontally and 53 m vertically above its launch point What are the a horizontal and b vertical components of the initial velocity of the projectile c At the instant the projectile achieves its maximum height above ground level how far is it displaced horizontally from the launch point Solution We apply Eq 421 Eq 422 and Eq 423 a From Ax v0xt we nd v0 40 m2s 20 ms b FromAyv0yt gt2 we nd voy 53 m98 ms22 s22 36ms c From vy v0y gt with vy 0 as the condition for maximum height we obtain t39 36 ms 98 msz 37 s During that time the xmotion is constant so 2639 x0 20 ms37 s 74 In Chapter 4 Problem 59 A woman rides a carnival Ferris wheel at radius 15 m completing five turns about its horizontal axis every minute What are a the period of the motion the b magnitude and c direction of her centripetal acceleration at the highest point and the d magnitude and e direction of her centripetal acceleration at the lowest point Solution a Since the wheel completes 5 turns each minute its period is one fth of a minute or 2 s b The magnitude of the centripetal acceleration is given by a vzR where R is the radius of the wheel and v is the speed of the passenger Since the passenger goes a distance 27rR for each revolution his speed is 122115111 v Sgtu1 s 125 and his centripetal acceleration is 785111 5 s a 41m 539 15111 c When the passenger is at the highest point his centripetal acceleration is downward toward the center of the orbit d At the lowest oint the centri etal acceleration is a 41 msz same as art b P P P e The direction is up toward the center of the orbit Chapter 4 Problem 66 A particle moves along a circular path over a horizontal xy coordinate system at constant speed At time t1400s it is at point 500 m 600 m with velocity 300 ms and acceleration in the positive x direction At time t2100s it has velocity 300 ms i and acceleration in the positive y direction What are the a x and b ycoordinates of the center of the circular path if tZtl is less than one period Solution The fact that the velocity is in the y direction and the acceleration is in the x direction at t1 400 s implies that the motion is clockwise The position corresponds to the 900 position On the other hand the position at t2 100 s is in the 600 position since the velocity points in the x direction and the acceleration is in the y direction The time interval At 100 s 400 s 600 s is equal to 34 ofaperiod 600sT 3 T800 s Equation 435 then yields r E 300 ms800 s 27239 27239 382 m a The x coordinate ofthe center ofthe circular path is x 500 m382 m 882 m b The y coordinate of the center of the circular path is y 600 m In other words the center ofthe circle is at xy 882 m 600 m Chapter 4 Problem 79 Two ships A and B leave port at the same time Ship A travels northwest at 24 knots and ship B travels at 28 knots in a direction 40 west of south 1 knot 1 nautical mile per hour see Appendix D What are the a magnitude and b direction of the velocity of ship A relative to B c After what time will the ships be 160 nautical miles apart d What will be the bearing of B the direction of B39s position relative toA at that time Solution Given that EA 45 and SE 40 as de ned in the gure the velocity vectors relative to the shore for ships A andB are given by y north 1 VA c0345 ilr1 si1145 i A VB 1395 sin10 i lvs cos10 with VA 24 knots and VB 28 knots We take 4 east as and north as 1 l The velocity of shipA relative to ship B is simply

the two ships started at the same time their relative velocity describes at what rate the distance between them is increasing Because the rate is steady we have l Ar l 160 nautical miles 384 knots 42 h d The velocity 17 B does not change with time in this problem and 7A B is in the same direction as 17 B since they started at the same time Reversing the points of view we have 17 17M so that 7 A ie they are 1800 opposite to each other Hence we conclude that B stays at a bearing of 150 west of south relative to A during the journey neglecting the curvature of Earth Note The relative velocity is depicted in the gure below When analyzing relative motion in two dimensions a vector diagram such as the one shown can be very helpful y no h Chapter 4 Problem 83 A woman who can row a boat at 64 kmh

directly opposite her starting position a at what angle toimust she point the boat and b how long will she take c How long will she take if instead she rows 32 km down the river and then back to her starting point d How long if she rows 32 km up the river and then back to her starting point e At what angle toi should she point the boat if she wants to cross the river in the shortest possible time f How long is that shortest time Solution We establish coordinates with pointing to the far side of the river perpendicular to the current and pointing in the direction of the current We are told that the magnitude presumed constant of the velocity of the boat relative to the water is l 17W l 64 kmh 9 0 1 The above expression leads to t 54 lnno4 kmh 10 h or 60 min Chapter 4 Problem 101 In the figure a ball is shot directly upward from the ground with an initial speed of v0 700 ms Simultaneously a construction elevator cab begins to move upward from the ground with a constant speed of vC 300 ms What maximum height does the ball reach relative to a the ground and b the cab floor At what rate does the speed of the ball change relative to c the ground and d the cab floor Give the magnitude of the rate of change Solution Using Eq 216 we obtain v2 v 2gh or h v02 v22g a Since v0at the maximum height of an upward motion with v0 700 ms we have h700 ms22980 ms2250 m b The relative speed is v v0 vC 700 ms 300 ms 400 ms with respect to the oor Using the above equation we obtain h 400 ms2 2980 msz 082 m c The acceleration or the rate of change of speed of the ball with respect to the ground is 980 ms2 downward d Since the elevator cab moves at constant velocity the rate of change of speed of the ball with respect to the cab oor is also 980 ms2 downward Chapter 3 Concept

40 m2 area of the valley oor Number Units j the tolerance is 2 Solution The volume of the section is 2500 m800 m20 m 40 X 106 m3 Letting 61 stand for the thickness of the mud after it has uniformly distributed in the valley then its volume there would be 400 m400 md Requiring these two volumes to be equal we can solve for 61 Thus at 25 m The volume of a small part of the mud over a patch of area of 40 m2 is 40d 100 m3 Since each cubic meter corresponds to a mass of 1900 kg stated in the problem then the mass of that small part ofthe mud is 19gtlt105 kg Problem 29 On a spending spree in

interval The paths pass over a grid of equally spaced straight lines I In the following questions you will need to rank the paths If multiple paths rank equally use the same rank for each then exclude the intermediate ranking ie if objects A B and C must be ranked and Aand B must both be ranked first the ranking would be Al Bl C3 If all paths rank equally rank each as 39139 Rank the paths according to the average velocity of the objects greatest first Solution Velocity is a vector quantity the displacements of object 1234 are equal all in the same time so object 1234 have the same velocity So their ranks are Object 1 1 Object 2 1 Object 3 1 Object 4 1 Rank the paths according to the average speed of the objects greatest first Solution Speed is a scalar quantity Object l234 have the same

at point 3 and point 5 the least great magnitude at point 1 and point 4 So we get Point 1 5 Point 2 1 Point 3 3 Point 4 5 Point 5 3 Point 6 1 Chapter 2 Concept Question 1 Hanging over the railing of a

that value for t gt 3 s e Yes since v smoothly changes from negative values consider the t 1 result to positive note that as t gt 00 we have v gt 00 One can check that v 0 when t 2 s t No In fact from v 712 6t we know that v gt 0 for t gt 2 s Chapter 2 Problem 28 On a dry road a car with good tires may be able to brake with a constant deceleration of 492 ms2 a How long does such a car initially traveling at 246 ms take to stopb How far does it travel in this time Solution We take x in the direction of motion so v0 246 ms and a 7 492 msz We also take x0 0 a The time to come to a halt is found using Eq 211 0v0 at 2 t 500s b Although several of the equations in Table 21 will yield the result we choose Eq 2 16 since it does not depend on our answer to part a 246 ms2 2 492 msz61395m39 0v 2ax 3

This yields two equations for the two unknowns v0 and a 00 20 mv0 10 sal0 s2 60 m 20 mv0 20 sa20 s2 Solving these simultaneous equations yields the results v0 0 and a 40 msz b The fact that the answer is positive tells us that the acceleration vector points in the x direction Chapter 2 Problem 53 A key falls from a bridge that is 45 m above the water It falls directly into a model boat moving with constant velocity that is 12 m from the point of impact when the key is released What is the speed of the boat S olution The speed of the boat is constant given by vb dt Here d is the distance of the boat from the bridge when the key is dropped 12 m and t is the time the key takes in falling To calculate t we put the origin of the coordinate system at the point where the key is dropped and take the y aXis to be positive in the downward direction Taking the time to be zero at the instant the key is dropped we compute the time I when y 45 m Since the initial velocity of the key is zero the coordinate of the key is given by y iglz Thus I 2y lm3o3s g 98ms Therefore the speed of the boat is 12 m 303 s v 40ms b Chapter 2 Problem 54 A stone is dropped into a river from a bridge 439 m above the water Another stone is thrown vertically down 1 s after the first is dropped Both stones strike the water at the same time What is the initial speed of the second stone S olution We neglect air resistance which justi es setting a 7g 798 ms2 taking down as the 7 y direction for the duration of the motion We are allowed to use Eq 215 with Ay replacing Ax because this is constant acceleration motion We use primed variables except I with the rst stone which has zero initial velocity and unprimed variables with the second stone with initial downward velocity ivo so that v0 is being used for the initial speed SI units are used throughout Ay39 0 th Ay lt vOgtltr 1 gltr 1gtz Since the problem indicates Ay Ay 4139 In we solve the rst equation for t nding t 299 s and use this result to solve the second equation for the initial speed of the second stone i 439 m v0l99 s 98ms2l99 s2 which leads to v0 123 ms Chapter 2 Problem 64 A ball is shot vertically upward from the surface of another planet A plot of y versus tfor the ball is shown in the figure where y is the height of the ball above its starting point and t 0 at the instant the ball is shot The figure39s vertical scaling is set by y 250 m What are the magnitudes of a the freefall acceleration on the planet and b the initial velocity of the ball 39 ml Solution The graph shows y 25 m to be the highest point where the speed momentarily vanishes The neglect of air friction or whatever passes for that on the distant planet is certainly reasonable due to the symmetry of the graph a To nd the acceleration due to gravity gP on that planet we use Eq 215 with y up yyo vt gpt2 2 25 m 0025sgp25s2 so that gP 80 msz b That same max point on the graph can be used to nd the initial velocity v0 025 s y y0lv0vt 3 25 m 0 2 Therefore v0 20 ms Chapter 2 Problem 69 How far does the runner whose velocity time graph is shown in the figure travel in 16 s The figure39s vertical scaling is set by S 800 ms 139 inquot 5 u 4 12 16 i 539 Solution Since v dx dt Eq 24 then Ax Iv dt which corresponds to the area under the v vs I graph Dividing the total area A into rectangular base gtlt height and triangular base gtlt height areas

accelerate from 0 to 60 kmh in 54 s a What is its average acceleration in ms2 during this time b How far will it travel during the 54 s assuming its acceleration is constant c From rest how much time would it require to go a distance of 025 km if its acceleration could be maintained at the value in a S olution Since the problem involves constant acceleration the motion of the rod can be readily analyzed using the equations in Table 21 We take x in the direction of motion so v60 kmh W l67m s 3600 s h and a gt 0 The location where it starts from rest v0 0 is taken to be x0 0 a Using Eq 27 we nd the average acceleration to be AV VV W309Ws2 z3lmSZ aav 3 At t to 54s 0 b Assuming constant acceleration a czan 309 ms2 the total distance traveled during the 54s time interval is xx0 v0t at2

xt 609 ms2t2 Also we could have chosen Eq 217 to solve for b xv0 v tl67ms54s45 m Chapter 2 Problem 100 A parachutist bails out and freely falls 50 m Then the parachute opens and thereafter she decelerates at 2 ms She reaches the ground with a speed of 30 ms a How long is the parachutist in the air b At what height does the fall begin S olution During free fall we ignore the air resistance and set a 7g 798 ms2 where we are choosing down to be the 7y direction The initial velocity is zero so that Eq 215 becomes Ay gt2 where Ay represents the negative of the distance d she has fallen Thus we can write the equation as d 3 gt2 for simplicity a The time t1 during which the parachutist is in free fall is using Eq 215 given by 1 2 1 2 2 d1 50m Egt1 E980ms z which yields t1 32 s The speed of the parachutist just before he opens the parachute is given by the positive root v12 2 gal1 or v12ghl 2980ms250 m 3lm s If the nal speed is vz then the time interval t2 between the opening of the parachute and the arrival of the parachutist at the ground level is v 1V2 3lms 30ms 2 14 s a 2 m s This is a result of Eq 211 where speeds are used instead of the negativevalued velocities so that finalvelocity minus initialvelocity turns out to equal initialspeed minus finalspeed we also note that the acceleration vector for this part of the motion is positive since it points upward opposite to the direction of motion 7 which makes it a deceleration The total time of ight is therefore II t l7 s b The distance through which the parachutist falls after the parachute is opened is given by 2 2 V V 3lms 30m s z 240m 61 2a 220ms2 In the computation we have used Eq 216 with both sides multiplied by 71 which changes the negativevalued Ay into the positive d on the lefthand side and switches the order of v1 and v on the righthand side Thus the fall begins at a height of h 50 d m 290 m Chapter 2 Problem 101 A ball is thrown down vertically with an initial speed of 29 fts from a height of 30 ft a What is its speed in fts just before it strikes the ground b How long does the ball take to reach the ground What would be the answers to c part a and d part b if the ball were thrown upward from the same height and with the same initial speed Before solving any equations decide whether the answers to c and d should be greater than less than or the same as in a and b Solution We neglect air resistance which justifies setting a 7g 798 ms2 32 15 fts2 taking down as the 7y direction for the duration of the motion We are allowed to use Table 21 with Ay replacing Ax because this is constant acceleration motion The ground level is taken to correspond to y 0 a With yo h and v0 replaced with ivo Eq 216 leads to V v02 2gy y0 Vvd 2537 so we get v 29fts2 2gtlt3215fts2 X30 5263 ft s The positive root is taken because the problem asks for the speed the magnitude of the velocity b We use the quadratic formula to solve Eq 215 for t with v0 replaced with ivo V0 V V02 2gAy Ay V0t igt2

with that speed from height h then in the absence of air friction it would return to height h with that same downward speed and would therefore yield the same final speed before hitting the ground as in part a An important perspective related to this is treated later in the book in the context of energy conservation d Having to travel up before it starts its descent certainly requires more time than in part b The calculation is quite similar however except for now having v0 in the equation where we had put in ivo in part b The details follow 1 v quotv2 2 A AyV0tEgt2 3 IM g with the positive
