4. A 1800 kg vehicle is traveling down a 6

incline with an initial speed of

100 km/hr when the driver see a stalled car in the middle of the road 75m
ahead. The driver immediately applies the brakes resulting in a constant
braking force. (a) Mathematically model the situation. Go through the steps
used in the modeling process. Derive the mathematical model for this

situation. (b) What is the minimum braking force required to stop the car
before it reaches he stalled car?
5. Replace the springs by a single spring of an equivalent stiffness.

6. A 0.38 caliber revolver fires a bullet of mass 8 g. The bullet is fired at a


velocity of 250 m/s. If the bullet is fired at an angle of 30

with respect to

the horizontal from 250 m above a terrain that slopes downward 30 . (a)
What is the maximum altitude attained by the bullet (above the firing
position). (b) What is the range of the bullet? (c) What is the duration of the
bullets flight? (c) What is the bullets linear momentum when it hits the
ground? (d) What is the kinetic energy of the bullet when it hits the ground?
