Problem 21P

Problem 21P

A popular pastime is to see who can push an object closest to the edge of a table without its going off. You push the 100 g object and release it 2.0 m from the table edge. Unfortunately, you push a little too hard. The object slides across, sails off the edge, falls 1.0 m to the floor, and lands 30 cm from the edge of the table. If the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.50, what was the object’s speed as you released it?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 21P

Step 1 of 5

When an object is pushed, closest to the edge of a table, we need to find the speed of the object, when it is released.
