Question #115668
Assignment 3 (Work, Energy and
Momentum) – Due Wednesday 20 May 2020
Question 1 (9 marks):
A block of mass 2.5 kg is pushed 2.2 m along a frictionless horizontal table by a
constant 16 N force directed 25° downward to the horizontal. Determine the work
done on the block by:
a) The applied force (3)
b) The normal force exerted by the table, and (2)
c) The gravitational force (2)
d) Determine the total work done (2)

Given data

Mass of block m= 2.5 kg

Acceleration due to gravity g= 9.80 m/s2

Applied force is F= 16 N

----------------------------------------------------------------

a)

The work done by the applied force is

"W_F=Fd cos25^o=(16 N)(2.2 m) cos25=31.9 N= 32 J"

b)

The work done by the normal force exerted by the table, is

"W_N= Nd cos90^o=Nd(0) = 0 J"

c)

The work done by the gravitational force is

"W_G= F_Gd cos90^o=F_Gd = 0 J"

d)

The total work done is

"W_Total= W_F+W_N+ W_G= 32 J"
