Hey everyone, can someone check a few of my homework questions for me? I got most of them right...having trouble with these six questions though. Thanks!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The same horizontal force is applied to objects of different mass. The resulting acceleration is measured for each object. Which of the following graphs correctly represents the experimental results? Assume that in each case the horizontal force is the only force acting on the objects.

My Answer: C

3. The values of the masses attached to an Atwood machine are listed below. For which case is the acceleration the largest in magnitude?

a. m1 = 200 grams, m2= 400 grams

b. m1 = 300 grams, m2= 300 grams

c. m1 = 100 grams, m2= 500 grams

d. m1 = 200 grams, m2= 400 grams

e. m1 = 150 grams, m2= 450 grams

My Answer: D

6. The values of the masses attached to an Atwood machine are listed below. For which case is the acceleration the largest in magnitude?

a. m1 = 200 grams, m2= 400 grams

b. m1 = 300 grams, m2= 500 grams

c. m1 = 100 grams, m2= 300 grams

d. m1 = 1200 grams, m2= 1400 grams

My Answer: E

7. The figure below shows the free-body diagram for a box as it is being dragged along a rough horizontal surface at a constant velocity. The background grid provides a scale for the magnitude of the forces. The normal force is not shown in the figure. Based on the scale provided what should be the magnitude of the normal force?

a. 100 N

b. 200 N

c. 300 N

d. 400 N

e. More information is needed to answer the question

My Answer: C

9. On a frictionless surface on earth you need to apply a force F to accelerate a heavy box. If you had to do the same thing on the moon (frictionless surface also) and obtain the same acceleration, you would need

a. much less force

b. much more force

c. the same force

My Answer: B

13. The figure below shows the free-body diagram for a box as it is being dragged along a rough horizontal surface. The background grid provides a scale for the magnitude of the forces. The normal force is not shown in the figure. Based on this diagram what is the acceleration of the box? Use g = 10 m/s2
