## Problem exercises

A $5\text{.}\text{00}×{\text{10}}^{5}\text{-kg}$ rocket is accelerating straight up. Its engines produce $1\text{.}\text{250}×{\text{10}}^{7}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$ of thrust, and air resistance is $4\text{.}\text{50}×{\text{10}}^{6}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$ . What is the rocket’s acceleration? Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s laws of motion.

Using the free-body diagram:

${F}_{\text{net}}=T-f-mg=\text{ma}$ ,

so that

$a=\frac{T-f-\text{mg}}{m}=\frac{1\text{.}\text{250}×{\text{10}}^{7}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}-4.50×{\text{10}}^{\text{6}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}N-\left(5.00×{\text{10}}^{5}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{kg}\right)\left(9.{\text{80 m/s}}^{2}\right)}{5.00×{\text{10}}^{5}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{kg}}=\text{6.20}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\text{m/s}}^{2}$ .

The wheels of a midsize car exert a force of 2100 N backward on the road to accelerate the car in the forward direction. If the force of friction including air resistance is 250 N and the acceleration of the car is $1\text{.}{\text{80 m/s}}^{2}$ , what is the mass of the car plus its occupants? Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s laws of motion. For this situation, draw a free-body diagram and write the net force equation.

Calculate the force a 70.0-kg high jumper must exert on the ground to produce an upward acceleration 4.00 times the acceleration due to gravity. Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s laws of motion.

1. Use Newton’s laws of motion.
2. Given : $a=4.00g=\left(4.00\right)\left(9.{\text{80 m/s}}^{2}\right)=\text{39.2}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\text{m/s}}^{2}\text{;}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}$ $m=\text{70}\text{.}\text{0 kg}$ ,

Find: $F$ .

3.   $\sum F\text{=+}F-w=\text{ma}\text{,}$ so that $F=\text{ma}+w=\text{ma}+\text{mg}=m\left(a+g\right)$ .

$F=\left(\text{70.0 kg}\right)\left[\left(\text{39}\text{.}{\text{2 m/s}}^{2}\right)+\left(9\text{.}{\text{80 m/s}}^{2}\right)\right]$ $=3.\text{43}×{\text{10}}^{3}\text{N}$ . The force exerted by the high-jumper is actually down on the ground, but $F$ is up from the ground and makes him jump.

4. This result is reasonable, since it is quite possible for a person to exert a force of the magnitude of ${\text{10}}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$ .

When landing after a spectacular somersault, a 40.0-kg gymnast decelerates by pushing straight down on the mat. Calculate the force she must exert if her deceleration is 7.00 times the acceleration due to gravity. Explicitly show how you follow the steps in the Problem-Solving Strategy for Newton’s laws of motion.

A freight train consists of two $8.00×{10}^{4}\text{-kg}$ engines and 45 cars with average masses of $5.50×{10}^{4}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{kg}$ . (a) What force must each engine exert backward on the track to accelerate the train at a rate of $5.00×{\text{10}}^{\text{–2}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\text{m/s}}^{2}$ if the force of friction is $7\text{.}\text{50}×{\text{10}}^{5}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$ , assuming the engines exert identical forces? This is not a large frictional force for such a massive system. Rolling friction for trains is small, and consequently trains are very energy-efficient transportation systems. (b) What is the force in the coupling between the 37th and 38th cars (this is the force each exerts on the other), assuming all cars have the same mass and that friction is evenly distributed among all of the cars and engines?

(a) $4\text{.}\text{41}×{\text{10}}^{5}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$

(b) $1\text{.}\text{50}×{\text{10}}^{5}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$

Commercial airplanes are sometimes pushed out of the passenger loading area by a tractor. (a) An 1800-kg tractor exerts a force of $1\text{.}\text{75}×{\text{10}}^{4}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\text{N}$ backward on the pavement, and the system experiences forces resisting motion that total 2400 N. If the acceleration is $0\text{.}{\text{150 m/s}}^{2}$ , what is the mass of the airplane? (b) Calculate the force exerted by the tractor on the airplane, assuming 2200 N of the friction is experienced by the airplane. (c) Draw two sketches showing the systems of interest used to solve each part, including the free-body diagrams for each.

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej
Abigail
for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
