2-2. Using spherical coordinates, we can write the force applied to the particle as rFθθφφ=++Feee (1)

But since the particle is constrained to move on the surface of a sphere, there must exist a reaction force that acts on the particle. Therefore, the total force acting on the particle is rrF−e

rR=re (3) where R is the radius of the sphere and is constant. The acceleration of the particle is

We must now express in terms of , re reθe, and φe. Because the unit vectors in rectangular coordinates, e, , e, do not change with time, it is convenient to make the calculation in

If the time it takes to cycle the ball through the juggler’s hands is 0.9sτ=, then there must be 3 balls in the air during that time τ. A single ball must stay in the air for at least 3τ, so the condition is 023vgτ≥, or . 1013.2msv−≥⋅ mg N point of maximum acceleration flightpath plane e a) From the force diagram we have ()2rmmvR−=Nge. The acceleration that the pilot feels is ()2rmmvR=+Nge, which has a maximum magnitude at the bottom of the maneuver.

b) If the acceleration felt by the pilot must be less than 9g, then we have

v R

A circle smaller than this will result in pilot blackout.


Let the origin of our coordinate system be at the tail end of the cattle (or the closest cow/bull).

a) The bales are moving initially at the speed of the plane when dropped. Describe one of these bales by the parametric equations


where , and we need to solve for . From (2), the time the bale hits the ground is 080 my=0x

b) She could drop the bale earlier by any amount of time and not hit the cattle. If she were late by the amount of time it takes the bale (or the plane) to travel by 30 m in the x-direction, then

2-7. Air resistance is always anti-parallel to the velocity. The vector expression is:

W wρ va

where 2wAmbcρ=. Solving with a computer using the given values and , we find that if the rancher drops the bale 210 m behind the cattle (the answer from the previous problem), then it takes 4.4 s to land 62.5 m behind the cattle. This means that the bale should be dropped at 178 m behind the cattle to land 30 m behind. This solution is what is plotted in the figure. The time error she is allowed to make is the same as in the previous problem since it only depends on how fast the plane is moving.

In order to calculate the time when a projective reaches the ground, we let y = 0 in (2):

Substituting (4) into (1) we find the relation between the range and the angle as

Eliminating t between these equations yields

We can find the x-coordinate of the projectile when it is at the height h by putting y = h in (7):

a) Zero resisting force (): 0rF= The equation of motion for the vertical motion is:

For t, v(t) = 0, then from (6), mt=

which can be rewritten as

0ln 1m kv kt

Since, for small z (z 1) the expansion

is valid, (8) can be expressed approximately as vk v kv t

which gives the correct result, as in (4) for the limit k → 0.

This equation can be solved exactly in the same way as in problem 2-12 and we find

2-12. The equation of motion for the upward motion is

22dx m kvdt

Using the relation d x dv dv dx dv v

we can rewrite (1) as vd v dx

Integrating (3), we find

log2 kv g x Ck where the constant C can be computed by using the initial condition that when x = 0: 0vv=

log2 C kvk

Therefore, kv g x

Now, the equation of downward motion is

22dx m kvdt

This can be rewritten as vd v dx

Integrating (8) and using the initial condition that x = 0 at v = 0 (w take the highest point as the origin for the downward motion), we find g x

At the highest point the velocity of the particle must be zero. So we find the highest point by substituting v = 0 in (6):

kv g x

Then, substituting (10) into (9), kv g g

Solving for v, g v

kv g v

We can find the terminal velocity by putting x → ∞ in(9). This gives t g v k

Therefore, we have

NEWTONIAN MECHANICS—SINGLE PARTICLE 39 and where C′ is a new constant. We can evaluate C′ by using the initial condition, at t = 0:

Substituting (5) into (4) and rearranging, we have aC e dx v

Now, in order to integrate (6), we introduce At−≡ue so that du = –Au dt. Then,

aC du A Cu u

Using Eq. (E.8c), Appendix E, we find

Again, the constant C″ can be evaluated by setting x = 0 at t = 0; i.e., x = 0 at u = 1:

Therefore, we have

Using (4) and (5), we can write

1 sin sin vava

From (6) we see that v → 0 as t → ∞. Therefore,

Also, for very large initial velocities,

lim sin sin 1

Therefore, using (1) and (12) in (10), we have

We know that the velocity of the particle continues to increase with time (i.e., 0dvdt>), so that

The initial condition v(t = 0) = 0 implies C = 0. Therefore,

We can integrate this equation to obtain the displacement x as a function of time:

Using Eq. (E.17a), Appendix E, we obtain

The initial condition x(t = 0) = 0 implies C′ = 0. Therefore, the relation between d and t is

From this equation, we can easily find dke

2-16. The only force which is applied to the article is the component of the gravitational force along the slope: mg sin α. So the acceleration is g sin α. Therefore the velocity and displacement along the slope for upward motion are described by:

At the highest position the velocity becomes zero, so the time required to reach the highest position is, from (1),

At that time, the displacement is


For downward motion, the velocity and the displacement are described by

where we take a new origin for x and t at the highest position so that the initial conditions are v(t = 0) = 0 and x(t = 0) = 0.

We find the time required to move from the highest position to the starting position by substituting (4) into (6):

Adding (3) and (7), we find

for the total time required to return to the initial position.

The setup for this problem is as follows:

R = 60 m. It must be at least h = 2 m high, so we also need 200sinvgτθτ−2hy−=. Solving for , we obtain 0v gR v

The angle that does this is 0.71 rad = 40.7°, and the ball now clears the fence by 1.1 m.

This trajectory is shown in Figure (b).

where v is the initial velocity. The distance from the point of projection is 0

0 x y r

Using (1), we have

v v t

For small values of α, the second term in (5) is imaginary. That is, r = 0 is never attained and the value of t resulting from the condition 0r= is unphysical.

Only for values of α greater than the value for which the radicand is zero does t become a physical time at which does in fact vanish. Therefore, the maximum value of α that insures for all values of t is obtained from r 0r >


2-20. If there were no retardation, the range of the projectile would be given by Eq. (2.54):

The angle of elevation is therefore obtained from

Rgv θ =

kV R

vk vgg θ θ

Since we expect the real angle θ to be not too different from the angle 0θ calculated above, we can solve (4) for θ by substituting 0θ for θ in the correction term in the parentheses. Thus,

4s in 1 kv v

Next, we need the value of k. From Fig. 2-3(c) we find the value of km by measuring the slope of the curve in the vicinity of v = 140 m/sec. We find ()()110 N500 m/s0.2 kg/skm≅≅. The curve is that appropriate for a projectile of mass 1 kg, so the value of k is

Substituting the values of the various quantities into (5) we find 17.1θ=°. Since this angle is somewhat greater than 0θ, we should iterate our solution by using this new value for 0θ in (5). We then find 17.4θ=°. Further iteration does not substantially change the value, and so we conclude that

If there were no retardation, a projectile fired at an angle of 17.4° with an initial velocity of 140 m/sec would have a range of

9.8 m/sec

This is an inhomogeneous differential equation that has both a homogeneous solution (the solution for the above equation with the right side set to zero) and a particular solution. The most general solution is the sum of both, which in this case is
