gilbert hlg574 HW02 tsoi 55730 This print out should have 18 questions Multiple choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering 001 part 1 of 2 10 0 points An elevator accelerates upward at 1 2 m s2 The acceleration of gravity is 9 8 m s2 What is the upward force exerted by the floor of the elevator on a n 65 kg passenger Correct answer 715 N Explanation 1 590 N 1 73 0N 601 N a What is the angle 1 which the righthand cable makes with respect to the ceiling Round up to four significant digits Express unit as degrees Correct answer 38 4808 degrees a Explanation Observe the free body diagram below N mg When the elevator is accelerating upward Fnet m a N m g N m a m g 002 part 2 of 2 10 0 points If the same elevator accelerates downwards with an acceleration of 1 2 m s2 what is the upward force exerted by the elevator floor on the passenger Correct answer 559 N Explanation a N mg When the elevator is accelerating downward Fnet m a m g N2 N2 m g m a 003 part 1 of 2 10 0 points Consider the 601 N weight held by two cables shown below The left hand cable had tension 590 N and makes an angle of with the wall The right hand cable had tension 730 N and makes an angle of 1 with the ceiling 2 F2 1 F1 Wg Note The sum of the x and y components of F1 F2 and Wg are equal to zero Given Wg 601 N F1 730 N 1 38 4808 2 90 Basic Concepts X Fx 0 F1x F1

year from his bosun s chair His weight is 710 N and the rope unknown to him has a breaking point of 405 N Explanation In the left figure Harry is supported by two strands of rope that share his weight so each strand supports only 355 N below the breaking point Total upward force supplied by the ropes equals weight acting downward giving a net force of zero and no acceleration 006 part 2 of 2 10 0 points One day Harry is painting near a flagpole and for a change he ties the free end of the rope to the flagpole instead of to his chair as shown at the right Why did Harry end up taking his vacation early To answer this find the tension in the rope Correct answer 710 N Explanation In the right figure Harry is now supported by one strand requiring the tension to be 710 N Since this is above the breaking point of the rope it breaks 007 part 1 of 5 10 0 points Given The pulley is massless and frictionless and attached to the ceiling A massless inextensible string is attached to the masses Mb and Ma where Mb Ma The tensions Ty Tz Tx and the gravitational constant g are magnitudes T Tz 3 T gilbert hlg574 HW02 tsoi 55730 Tx Mb Ma Mb g Ty Mb Ma g a Ma Consider the following possibilities and select the correct choice a R Since the larger mass will move down and the smaller mass up we can take motion downward as positive for Mb and motion upward as positive for Ma Apply Newton s second law to Ma and Mb respectively and then combine the results we have for mass Ma X Fx T Ma g Ma a 2 1 Ty Mb g and Tx Ma g 2 Ty Mb g and Tx Ma g 3 Ty Mb g and Tx Ma g 4 Ty Mb g and Tx Ma
