Road Map e know dwe speed of the collar at two different positions and we know the forces acting on the collar as it moves between those positions 0 Applying t e BWE should then give us the one

on a table 9 Given the friction coefficients between A and B and between A and the table what are the final XA and X3 if A and B start at X 0 With an initial horizontal velocity of v0 075 ms7 We can answer this question by applying the BWE to each book 7 Bjil B separately V3 7V 239 f5 For B we have L Na 7 A a a 2 731 v51 kwm g Mum where U14p is the work done on B by all M x forces for which we do not have a potential NA energy function In addition quotPositionsquot in the Balance of Work and Energy for Systems For T31 V31 U172an T32 V32 mm 0 D is the position at which the books V rst strike
