You are on an amusement park ride with your back against the wall of a spinning vertical cylinder. The floor falls away and you are held up by static friction. Assume your mass is 72 kg. (a) Draw...

You plan to fly a model airplane of mass 0.550 kg that is attached to a horizontal string. The plane will travel in a horizontal circle of radius 5.10 m. (Assume the weight of the plane is balanced...

Your moving company is to load a crate of books on a truck with the help of some planks that slope upward 33°. The mass of the crate is 98.0 kg, and the coefficient of sliding friction between it...

A curve of radius 138 m is banked at an angle of 11°. An 762-kg car negotiates the curve at 82 km/h without skidding. Neglect the effects of air drag and rolling friction. Find the following. (a)...

The radius of curvature of a loop-the-loop for a roller coaster is 14.0 m. At the top of the loop, the force that the seat exerts on a passenger of mass m is 0.35mg. Find the speed of the roller coaster...

Suppose you ride a bicycle in a 21.6-m-radius circle on a horizontal surface. The resultant force exerted by the surface on the bicycle (normal force plus frictional force) makes an angle of 13.8°...

A 0.70 kg stone attached to a string is whirled in a horizontal circle of radius 28 cm as in the figure below. The string makes an angle of 30° with the vertical. (a) Find the speed of the stone...

A block of mass m1 is attached to a cord of length L1, which is fixed at one end. The block moves in a horizontal circle on a frictionless tabletop. A second block of mass m2 is attached to the first...

A 0.30 kg stone attached to a 0.8 m long string is rotated in a horizontal plane. The string makes an angle of 15° with the horizontal. Determine the speed of the stone.

A 74.4-kg airplane pilot pulls out of a dive by following, at a constant speed of 184 km/h, the arc of a circle whose radius is 282.0 m. (a) At the bottom of the circle, what are the direction...

A sky diver of mass 66 kg can slow herself to a constant speed of 99 km/h by orienting her body horizontally, looking straight down with arms and legs extended. In this position, she presents the...

The coefficient of static friction between a rubber tire and the road surface is 0.85. What is the maximum acceleration of a 1042-kg four-wheel-drive truck if the road makes an angle of 12.7° with...

An automobile is going up a grade of 15° at a speed of 25.5 m/s. The coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is 0.70. (a) What minimum distance does it take to stop the car...

A rear-wheel-drive car supports 48% of its weight on its two drive wheels and has a coefficient of static friction of 0.60. (a) What is the vehicle's maximum acceleration? (b) What is the...

In the figure below, m1 = 3.2 kg, m2 = 5.8 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the inclined plane and the 3.2-kg block is μk = 0.25. Find the magnitude of the acceleration of the masses...

You are racing in a rally on a snowy day when the temperature is near the freezing point. The coefficient of static friction between a car's tires and an icy road is 0.170. Your crew boss is concerned...

A block of mass M = 16 kg with a pulley attached slides along a frictionless ledge. It is connected by a massless string to a block of mass m = 5.2 kg. (a) Find the acceleration of each block...
