Problem 12PE

Repeat the previous problem for the situation in which the rocket sled decelerates at a rate of 201 m/s2 . In this problem, the forces are exerted by the seat and restraining belts.

Reference previous problem:

The rocket sled shown in Figure 4.33 accelerates at a rate of 49.0 m/s2. Its passenger has a mass of 75.0 kg. (a) Calculate the horizontal component of the force the seat exerts against his body. Compare this with his weight by using a ratio. (b) Calculate the direction and magnitude of the total force the seat exerts against his body.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 5<p>The force and the acceleration of the passenger is given. We have to calculate the force on the passenger. Then we have to compare the force with the weight of the passenger.

Then we have to calculate the magnitude and direction of the resultant force exerted on the passenger by the seat.

Part (a)Step 2 of 5<p>The rocket is decelerating at a rate of 201 m/s2. Hence the acceleration of the rocket is , and the mass of the passenger is . Hence the force on the passenger by the seat and belt is

Hence, the force exerted by seat and restraining belt, due to the acceleration of the rocket is  N.

Step 3 of 5<p>The weight is given by

Where, the acceleration due to gravity is .

Hence,

Step 4 of 5

Step 5 of 5
