over light, frictionless pulleys to mass A (4.00kg) and mass B (2.00kg). If the coefficient of
kinetic friction on the block is 0.5, what is the acceleration on the system? 2.1 m/s2 toward A
15. A 675 N punk brings his scale onto an elevator and stands on it. As the elevator begins to fall, he
sees that the scale reads 555 N. Find the acceleration of the elevator as it begins to fall. 2.12
m/s2 down
16. A wagon with rubber tires rests on a horizontal, wet surface. Calculate the mass of the wagon if
an applied force of 67 N [forward] would cause the wagon to start moving. The coefficient of
static friction is 0.6 and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.5. 11 kg
17. While standing on a horizontal frictionless surface, a 45.0kg baseball pitcher throws a 3.0kg

0.60m from rest to a velocity of 9.6 m/s. Calculate the acceleration of the pitcher when the ball
is released.
18. Bob is moving a steel box in shop class on a steel workbench. He pushes against the box with a
force of 25N. Will anything happen? What is the magnitude of the force of friction on the box? If
the box has a mass less than or equal to 6.2 kg, the box will move.
19. Two blocks of identical material are connected by a light rope on a level surface. An applied
force of 55N causes the blocks to accelerate. While in motion, the magnitude of the force of

by 10 meters? 𝟐. πŸπŸ’ × πŸπŸŽπŸπŸŽ 𝑡
23. A little furry creature (let’s just call it a furrythinga) climbs to the top of a mountain (let’s just
call it Mount Yournevercomingdowna). At the top of the mountain, it steps on a bathroom scale
and sees that it weighs 267 N. If the height of this mountain is 1.179 x 102 m, what is the mass of
the creature? 27.2 kg
24. The dwarf planet Pluto has three moons, Nix, Hydra, and Charon. Nix has a mass of 2.00 x 1018
