P.1. A 35,000Mg ocean liner has an initial velocity of 4km/h.

Neglecting the frictional resistance of

the water, determine the time required to bring the liner to rest by using a single tugboat which
exerts a constant force of 150kN.

P.2. A 1300kg automobile is moving at a speed of 60km/h when the brakes are fully applied, causing
all four wheels to skid. Determine the time required to stop the automobile (a) on dry pavement
(=0.75), (b) on an icy road (=0.10).

P.3. A sailboat weighing 980 lb with its
occupants is running down wind at 8mi/h when
its spinnaker is raised to increase its speed.
Determine the net force provided by the
spinnaker over the 10s interval that it takes for
the boat to reach a speed of 12mi/h.


P.4. A truck is hauling a 300kg log out of a ditch
using a winch attached to the back of the truck.
Knowing the winch applies a constant force of
2500N and the coefficient of kinetic friction
between the ground and the log is 0.45,
determine the time for the log to reach a speed
of 0.5m/s.

P.5. A 2kg particle is acted upon by the force, expressed in newtons, F=(86t)i+(4t2)j+(4+t)k.
Knowing that the velocity of the particle is v=(150m/s)i+(100m/s)j(250m/s)k at t=0, determine (a)
the time at which the velocity of the particle is parallel to the yz plane, (b) the corresponding velocity
of the particle.

P.6. The system shown is at rest when a constant
150N force is applied to collar B. Neglecting the
effect of friction, determine (a) the time at
which the velocity of collar B will be 2.5m/s to
the left, (b) the corresponding tension in the

P.7. A 25ton railroad car moving at
2.5mi/h is to be coupled to a 50 ton car
which is at rest with locked wheels
(=0.30). Determine (a) the velocity of
both cars after the coupling is completed,
(b) the time it takes for both cars to come
to rest.

P.8. The coefficient of restitution between the
two collars is known to be 0.70. Determine their
velocities after impact.

P.9. Collars A and B, of the same mass m, are
moving toward each other with identical speeds
as shown. Knowing that the coefficient of
restitution between the collars is e, determine
the energy lost in the impact as a function of m,
e and v.

P.10. The Mars Pathfinder spacecraft used large airbags to cushion its
impact with the planets surface when landing. Assuming the spacecraft
had an impact velocity of 18m/s at an angle of 45 with respect to the
horizontal, the coefficient of restitution is 0.85 and neglecting friction,
determine (a) the height of the first bounce, (b) the length of the first
bounce. (Acceleration of gravity on the Mars=3.73m/s2.)

P.11. A load is to be raised 2.4m by the hoisting
system shown. Assuming gear A is initially at
rest, accelerates uniformly to a speed of 120rpm
in 5s, and then maintains a constant speed of
120rpm, determine (a) the number of
revolutions executed by gear A in raising the
load, (b) the time required to raise the load.

P.12. Collar B moves upward with a constant velocity of
1.5m/s. At the instant when =50, determine (a) the angular
velocity of rod AB, (b) the velocity of end A of the rod.


P.13. A completely filled barrel and its
contents have a combined mass of 90 kg. A
cylinder C is connected to the barrel at a
height h = 550 mm as shown. Knowing
=0.40 (static) and =0.35 (kinetic),
determine the maximum mass of C so the
barrel will not tip.
