The slotted arm OA rotates counterclockwise about O such that when theta=pi/4 arm OA is rotating with an angular velocity of theta dot and an angular acceleration of theta 2 dots. Determine the magnitude of the velocity of pin B at this instant. The motion of pin B is constrained such that it moves on the fixed circular surface and along the slot in OA. Determine the magnitude of the acceleration of pin B at this instant.
At the instant shown, cars A and B travel at speeds of 70 mi/h and 50 mi/h respectively. If B is increasing its speed by 1100 mi/h2, while A maintains a constant speed, determine the direction of the velocity and acceleration of B with respect to A. Car B moves along a curve having radius of curvature of .7 mi.
The 800 kg car at B is connected to the 350 kg car at A by spring coupling. Determine the stretch in the spring if the wheels of both cars are free to roll. Neglect the mass of the wheels. Determine the stretch in the spring if the brakes are applied to all four wheels of car B, causing the wheels to skid. Take (Uk)B=.4
If the 10-lb block slides down the plane with a constant velocity when theta=30 degrees, determine the acceleration of the block when theata equals 45 degrees.
Crossing a River. As shown, a swimmer wants to cross a river, from point A to point B. The distance d1 (between A and C) is 200 m, the distance d2 (between C and B) is 150 m, and the river's speed vr is 5.00 km/h. The swimmer's velocity relative to the water makes an angle of 45 degrees with respect to AC. To swim directly from A to B, what speed v2, relative to the river's speed, should the swimmer have?
Rocket Height. A rocket, initially at rest on the ground, accelerates straight upward with a constant acceleration of 34.3 m/s^2. The rocket accelerates for a period of 10.0 s before exhausting its fuel. The rocket continues its ascent until its motion is halted by gravity. The rocket then enters free fall. Find the maximum height, ymax, reached by the rocket. Ignore air resistance and assume a constant acceleration due to gravity of 9.810 m/s^2.
