1. If a cord is pulled upward, making an angle of 27º with respect to the horizon line, produces a force of 365N and can pull a box over the floor with a weight of 55.2 kg at a constant speed of 20.5 centimeters/sec - which is the magnitude of the friction force that opposes the movement of the box?

2. A boat pulls a water-skier at a constant speed of 13.5 meters/seconds. The tension of the cable is 165N - which is the magnitude of the friction force that the water and the air produces against the skier?

3. A parachuter of 72 Kilograms falls at a constant speed of 9.1 meters per second. The parachuter has a mass of 6.5 Kilograms - a) What is the parachuter's weight? b) How big is the ascendant force that the air exercises on the parachuter and on the parachute?

1. If a cord is pulled upward, making an angle of 27º with respect to the horizon line, produces a force of 365N and can pull a box over the floor with a weight of 55.2 kg at a constant speed of 20.5 centimeters/sec - which is the magnitude of the friction force that opposes the movement of the box?

Since the box is moving with constant velocity ( i.e. no net force) , frictional force- horizontal component of force in the cord=0 or frictional force= horizontal component of force in the cord

T= force in the cord= 365 N

horizontal component of force in the cord= T cos 27= 325.2 N =365*0.89101

Answer: magnitude of the friction force that opposes the movement of the box= 325.2 N

2. A boat pulls a water-skier at a constant speed of 13.5 meters/seconds. The tension of the cable is 165N - which is the magnitude of the friction force that the water and the air produces against the skier?

Since the water -skier is moving with constant velocity ( i.e. no net force), tension in the cable-frictional force=0 or tension in the cable=frictional force

Answer: magnitude ...
