ES 62 Problem Set Instructions: Write your solutions with corresponding illustrations/figures in a clean, short bond paper.

Submit this on or before July 7, 12:00 pm at my table in the CerE/ChE/MetE Department. Problem sets passed beyond this deadline will not be accepted. 1. A motorcycle starts from rest at t = 0 and travels along a straight road with a constant acceleration of 6 ft/s2 until it reaches a speed of 50 ft/s. Afterwards it maintains this speed. Also, when t = 0, a car located 6000 ft down the road is travelling toward the motorcycle at a constant speed of 30 ft/s. Determine the time and the distance travelled by the motorcycle when they pass each other. 2. If the effects of atmospheric resistance are accounted for, a freely falling body has an acceleration defined by the equation m/s2, where v is in m/s and the positive direction is downward. If the body is released from rest at a very high altitude, determine (a) the velocity when t = 5 s, and (b) the body s terminal or maximum attainable velocity (as ). 3. Pin A, which is attached to link AB, is constrained to move in the circular slot CD. Knowing that at t = 0 the pin starts from rest and moves so that its speed increases at a constant rate of 0.8 in./s2, determine the magnitude of its total acceleration when (a) t = 0, (b) t = 2 s.

4. An elevator starts from rest and rises 40 m to its maximum velocity in T seconds with the acceleration record shown in the figure. Determine (a) the required time T, (b) the maximum velocity, (c) the velocity and position of the elevator at t = T/2.

5. (b) the corresponding time required for the puck to reach the net. Determine (a) the largest value (less than 45°) of the angle for which the puck will enter the net. . The initial velocity v0 of a hockey puck is 170 km/h.
