Problem 8PE

Suppose the ski patrol lowers a rescue sled and victim, having a total mass of 90.0 kg, down a 60.0º slope at constant speed, as shown in Figure 7.37. The coefficient of friction between the sled and the snow is 0.100. (a) How much work is done by friction as the sled moves 30.0 m along the hill? (b) How much work is done by the rope on the sled in this distance? (c) What is the work done by the gravitational force on the sled? (d) What is the total work done? Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 6</p>

The sled and victim, having a total mass of ,coming downward at slope at a constant speed is shown in the figure below. Step 2 of 6</p>

a) We need to find out the work done by friction as the sled moves along the hill.

The work done by friction is nothing but the sum of frictional force and the distance moved by the sled is given by, ..............(1)

We know that the coefficient of friction is So Put this value in equation (1) From figure Then distance Coefficient of friction Acceleration due to gravity angle Then work done by friction as the sled moves along the hill is Step 3 of 6</p>

b) We need to find out how much work is done by the rope on the sled.

Let T is the Tension of the rope.

from figure Implies We found out the value of Put this value in the above equation   Step 4 of 6

Step 5 of 6
