Problem 68GP

(a) If the horizontal acceleration produced by an earthquake is a, and if an object is going to “hold its place” on the ground, show that the coefficient of static friction with the ground must be at least μs = a/g. (b) The famous Loma Prieta earthquake that stopped the 1989 World Series produced ground accelerations of up to 4.0 m/s2 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Would a chair have started to slide on a linoleum floor with coefficient of static friction 0.25?

Step-by-Step Solution:

SOLUTION: Step 1 of 3 Any mass object thrown from earth surface after some time again it falls on the earth surface due gravitational full of earth and always which acts downwards. During the journey of the object one more force resist motion of the object and which acts on the body which is called drag force or air resistance Step 2 of 3 Net resultant force is not same when ball is moved in upward and downward Gravitational force and drag forces(air resistance) acts in same direction when the ball moves upward. Gravitational force and drag forces(air resistance) acts in opposite direction when the ball moves downward. But the resultant force is greater in the upward motion than the downward direction

This full solution covers the following key subjects: ball, later, beach, both, cases. This expansive textbook survival guide covers 35 chapters, and 3914 solutions. This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Physics: Principles with Applications, edition: 6th. Physics: Principles with Applications was written by Sieva Kozinsky and is associated to the ISBN: 9780130606204. Since the solution to 68GP from 4 chapter was answered, more than 266 students have viewed the full step-by-step answer. The full step-by-step solution to problem: 68GP from chapter: 4 was answered by Sieva Kozinsky, our top Physics solution expert on 03/03/17, 03:53PM. The answer to “(a) If the horizontal acceleration produced by an earthquake is a, and if an object is going to “hold its place” on the ground, show that the coefficient of static friction with the ground must be at least ?s = a/g. (b) The famous Loma Prieta earthquake that stopped the 1989 World Series produced ground accelerations of up to 4.0 m/s2 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Would a chair have started to slide on a linoleum floor with coefficient of static friction 0.25?” is broken down into a number of easy to follow steps, and 84 words.
