The only force acting on a 2.4 kg body as it moves along the x axis varies as shown in Fig. 7-33 (attached). The velocity of the body at x = 0 is 4.0 m/s.

(a) What is the kinetic energy of the body at x = 3.0 m?
(b) At what value of x will the body have a kinetic energy of 8.0 J?
(c) What is the maximum kinetic energy attained by the body between x = 0 and x = 5.0 m?

We know that work done is given by the change in kinetic energy.
That is,
W = Final KE - Initial KE = (1/2)m vf^2 - (1/2)m vi^2 ....(1)
where vf and vi are the initial and final velocities.

also, we know that the area under the force vs distance curve gives the work done.

We have, m = 2.4 Kg
v at x = 0, = 4 m/s

a) The initial KE = (1/2)m v^2 = 0.5 * 2.4 * 4^2 = ...

Solution Summary

The solution uses the area under the graph provided to answer the question of forces and work done.

An aircraft weighing 832 N is accelerated at 11.1 m/s/s for 5 seconds, at which time the aircraft launches. Assume the acceleration is constant. What is the force required to launch the aircraft?
Hint: this is a multiple step problem in which you must derive the variables needed in Newton's equation for force.

Hi, I need some assistance understanding how to solve the following problem.
Problem: A +5.0 micro-Coulomb charge experiences a 0.20 N force in the positive y direction. If this charge is replaced with a -2.7 micro-Coulomb charge, what force will it experience?

A student pulls a box of books on a smooth horizontal floor with a force of 100 N in a
direction 37.0 degrees above the horizontal. If the mass of the box and the books is 40.0 kg, what is the normal force on the box?

An airplane has a mass of 3.1 x 10^4 kg and takes off under the influence of a constant net force of 3.7 x 10^4 N. What is the net force that acts on the plane's 78-kg pilot?

An object falls off of a pier and into the ocean (sea water) where it displaces a total volume of 3.8 cubic meters of sea water. What is the buoyant force acting on the object in newtons? You will need to use the mass density form of the buoyant force equation in order to work the problem in the mks system.

A 5.0 kg block is pulled along a horzontal surface by a cord that exerts a force T = 12.0 N at an angle 35 degrees above the horizontal. There is no friction (A) Draw a free-body diagram of the block, labeling all forces. (B) What must be true of the sum of the vertical components of all forces? Why? (C) Determine the accelerati

Two blocks are in contact on a frictionless table. A horizontal force F is applied to M2, as shown. If M1 = 1.81 kg, M2 = 3.26 kg, and F = 5.50 N, find the size of the contact force between the two blocks.
(Block M1 is touching block M2, sitting on a table.)

Here is the actual problem:
A 1000 kg car pushes a 2000 kg truck that has a dead battery. When the driver steps on the accelerator, the drive wheels of the car push against the ground with a force of 4500 N.

Previously it was considered a force of the form f = ixy + jcx^2 + kz^3, and found a value of "c" from the following list such that this was a conservative force.
Note: there must really be extra 'constants' in front of each term, with magnitude 1 but the proper units (such as

Two horizontal forces act on a 5.0-kg mass. One force has a magnitude of 8.0 N and is directed due north (along +y axis). The second force has a magnitude of 6.0 N and is directed due east (along +x axis). What is the acceleration of the mass?
