Problem:
A train consists of a 50Mg engine and three cars, each having a mass of 30 Mg.
If it takes 80 s for the train to increase its speed uniformly to 40 km/h, starting
from rest, determine the force T developed at the coupling between the engine E
and the first car A. The wheels of the engine provide a resultant frictional tractive
force F which gives the train forward motion, whereas the car wheels roll freely.
Also, determine F acting on the engine wheels.

Problem:
Assuming that the force acting on a 2g bullet, as it passes horizontally through
the barrel of a rifle, varies with time in the manner shown, determine the
maximum net force F
0
applied to the bullet when it is fired. The muzzle velocity is
500 m/s when t = 0.75ms. Neglect friction between the bullet and the rifle barrel.
Solution:
Apply the Principle of Impulse & Momentum. Note that the total impulse is the
area under the curve shown in the plot. This is the area of two triangles.
Therefore, we can determine the total impulse to be:

Problem:
The 5.5Mg humpback whale is stuck on the shore due to changes in the tide. In
an effort to rescue the whale, a 12Mg tugboat is used to pull it free using an
inextensible rope tied to its tail. To overcome the frictional force of the sand on
the whale, the tug backs up so that the rope becomes slack and then the tug
proceeds forward at 3 m/s. If the tug then turns the engines off, determine the
average frictional force F on the whale if sliding occurs for 1.5 s before the tug
stops after the rope becomes taut. Also, what is the average force on the rope
during the tow?

Apply the Principle of Impulse & Momentum to solve for both forces.

Problem:
If a 150 Lbf man fires a 0.2 Lbf bullet with a horizontal muzzle velocity of 3000
ft/s measured relative to the 600 Lbf cart, determine the velocity of the cart just
after firing. What is the velocity of the cart when the bullet becomes embedded
in the target? During the firing, the man remains in the same position on the cart.
Neglect the rolling resistance of the cart.
Solution:
Consider the force diagrams shown below for the case just after firing and when
the bullet embeds in the target.
Note that the impulsive forces F
1
& F
2
are internal to the system and cancel each
other. This means that, if we apply the Principle of Impulse & Momentum,
momentum is conserved.
From kinematics in the horizontal direction, we can establish the relation between
the velocities of the bullet and the cart:

Problem:
The pile, P, has a mass of 800 kg and is being driven into loose sand using a 300
kg hammer which is dropped a distance of 0.5m from the top of the pile.
Determine the distance the pile is driven into the sand after one blow of the
hammer if the sand offers a frictional resistance of 18 kN. The coefficient of
restitution between the pile and the hammer is 0.1. Neglect the impulses due to
the weights of pile and hammer and the impulse due to the sand during the
impact.

Since all of the impulsive forces are neglected, apply conservation of energy to
