hi guys :surprised
please help im really confuzzeled
Since this is a homework question, please show some work before we can help you.
unknown = a d = v1(time) + 0.5(a)(time)2 ....time is squared
time= 2.00s a = 1.55m/s/s
distance = 3.10 m
v1= 0 m/s
this is what i have so far. what do i do after this? plz help
can someone help me
Use Newton's second law to sum up the forces. Solve for the frictional force.
what do you mean?
what am i adding together?
i dont understand because right now i have the net force and acceleration.
can u please reply? thanks so much for the help =)
What forces are present? Can you tell me that? And their direction.
umm.....there is net force and frictional force and that's it.
No, the net force is the difference between these two other forces. What is causing the kid to go down the pole in the first place?
sorry for the wait. i dont understand what you're asking?
"a tree house has a vertical "fire pole" of smooth metal"
I'm asking what forces are acting on the child as he goes down the pole. The is the frictional force, and there is one more. Can you tell me what it is? (What makes things go towards the Earth?)
Do you know how to draw free body diagrams?
OK, so you have gravity acting downwards, right? The frictional force acts which way?
Eureka! gravity is the force and yes, i know how to draw FBDs.
sorry about the repost.
frictional force is upwards away from the object
Yes, that's right. So what is your net force then?
frictional force minus gravity (not sure)
Yes, that's the right idea. So use that in Newton's second law, solving for the frictional force.
You don't know Newton's second law? Does F=ma look familiar?
sorry i'm a little slow at this because it's very new to me
yes but how is being used with this situation ?
doesn't f=ma have to do with acceleration and mass multplied together to give us fnet?
