```EGB211 β Problem solving Task
Solve all the following exercises, showing all the steps of your calculations and solutions. A total of
25 points are split among the three exercises as specified in each exercise title. Please highlight the
final answers to each part of each question. Submit your solutions using Turnitin. If you have any
technical issue at the moment of the Turnitin submission, please send a copy of your solutions via email
at [email protected] within the assignment deadline.
Exercise A. A car on a hill (8 points)
At the start of a hill, whose slope has an almost constant inclination of πΌ = 10°, a car with an initial
speed π£0 = 80 ππ/β, starts to accelerate. The friction coefficient due to the contact of the wheels is
π = 0.15. The air resistance in this case needs to be accounted for and is equal to 0.9 π£ 2 , π£ being the
speed of the car. The force exerted by the motor of the car is denoted by πΉπ .
For this exercise consider a car of mass π = 2,500 kg.

1. Draw the free body diagram of the car during the climb of the hill and draw your selected
coordinate system.

2. Obtain the equation of motion of the car as a function of the only unknowns π₯ (and/or its
derivatives) and πΉπ (i.e. express all other quantities numerically)

3. Given that the car acceleration π(π‘) is constant and equal to 1m/s2, obtain the analytical
expression of motor power in time.
Assuming the maximum power of the car is 425kW, for how long can the car maintain such
an acceleration?

Exercise B. Carousel Accident (7 points)
An accident, luckily with no casualties, happens at an amusement park. The accident involves a highspeed carousel, composed of:
ο· A series of radial arms of radius π = 10 m, mounted on a 3 m tall vertical shaft (β = 3 m),
rotating at a constant angular speed π0 = 2.5 rad/s
ο· a series of seats attached to the at the free ends of each arm (negligible mass)
One of the seats, carrying a 65 kg passenger (ππ ), brakes during operation at nominal speed. The
passenger is therefore released and after a short flight, he lands on a pop-corn kiosk (of negligible
height), luckily unharmed.
An investigation has been opened and you, as a member of the investigation committee, have been
asked to reconstruct the details of the accident. The carousel and pop-corn kiosk are installed on flat
ground (ie. the base of the shaft is aligned with the kiosk).
1. What was the radial tension on the arm due to the mass of the passenger immediately before
the accident occurred? (Show all working. INCLUDE A FBD) Hint: What forces are there
in the system?
Answer within the space provided by this box; the box can be expanded if needed
2. What was the velocity of the passenger just before the accident?
Answer within the space provided by this box; the box can be expanded if needed
3. What was the initial distance between the kiosk and the carouselβs shaft?

system to stop moving)?
