Section 7.2 Work Done by a Constant Force
1.A block of mass m = 2.50 kg is pushed a distance d = 2.20 m along a frictionless, horizontal table by a constant applied force of magnitude F = 16.0 N directed at an angle = 25.0° below the horizontal as shown in Figure P7.1. Determine the work done on the block by (a) the applied force, (b) the normal force exerted by the table, (c) the gravitational force, and (d) the net force on the block.
2. A raindrop of mass 3.35 10–5 kg falls vertically at constant speed under the influence of gravity and air resistance. Model the drop as a particle. As it falls 100 m, what is the work done on the raindrop (a) by the gravitational force and (b) by air resistance?
3. In 1990, Walter Arfeuille of Belgium lifted a 281.5-kg object through a distance of 17.1 cm using only his teeth. (a) How much work was done on the object by Arfeuille in this lift, assuming the object was lifted at constant speed? (b) What total force was exerted on Arfeuille’s teeth during the lift?
4. The record number of boat lifts, including the boat and its ten crew members, was achieved by Sami Heinonen and Juha Räsänen of Sweden in 2000. They lifted a total mass of 653.2 kg approximately 4 in. off the ground a total of 24 times. Estimate the total work done by the two men on the boat in this record lift, ignoring the negative work done by the men when they lowered the boat back to the ground.
5. Q|C A shopper in a supermarket pushes a cart with a force of 35 N directed at an angle of 25 below the horizontal. The force is just sufficient to balance various friction forces, so the cart moves at constant speed. (a) Find the work done by the shopper on the cart as she moves down a 50.0-m-long aisle. (b) What is the net work done on the cart by all forces? Why? (c) The shopper goes down the next aisle, pushing horizontally and maintaining the same speed as before. If the friction force doesn’t change, would the shopper’s applied force be larger, smaller, or the same? (d) What about the work done on the cart by the shopper?
6.Spiderman, whose mass is 80.0 kg, is dangling on the free end of a 12.0-m-long rope, the other end of which is fixed to a tree limb above. By repeatedly bending at the waist, he is able to get the rope in motion, eventually getting it to swing enough that he can reach a ledge when the rope makes a 60.0° angle with the vertical. How much work was done by the gravitational force on Spiderman in this maneuver?
