Problem 1. Two swimmers leave point A on one bank of a river to reach point B lying directly across on

the other bank. One of them swims at the appropriate angle with respect to the water so that their velocity

with respect to the riverbanks is directed along the straight line from A to B. The other swimmer simply

starts swimming across, and is consequently pushed downstream. This second swimmer, after reaching the

other side, walks back along the riverbank to reach point B. What must be the walking velocity u of the

second swimmer so that both swimmers reach point B at the same time? The speed of the water is v0 = 2.0

km/hr, and the speed of both swimmers with respect to the water is v 0 = 2.5 km/hr.

Let ` denote the distance from A to B. We will refer to the swimmer who is moving in a straight line

from A to B as swimmer 1 and the swimmer who is being pushed downstream as swimmer 2.

be the velocity of swimmer 1 and v2 be the velocity of swimmer 2 (both with

Let v1 = v1x x

respect to the Earth). Let w = 2

y be the velocity of the water. We know

v2 = 2.5

x

and

|v1 w| = 2.5.

Since swimmer 1 is swimming in a straight line with respect to the earth, we know that

v1y = wy = 2.

2 + v 2 , which yields v

We also have v 0 = 2.5 = v1x

Let T1 be the time it takes swimmer 1 to cross the river. Since swimmer 1 is moving at a constant velocity,

we have

Similarly,

So, in order to figure out the distance D swimmer 2 is from point B by the time they have crossed the river,

Problem 3. Two crates, the left one with mass 4.00 kg and the other with mass 6.00 kg, sit on the frictionless

surface of a frozen pond, connected by a light rope. A woman wearing golf shoes (so she can get traction on

the ice) pulls horizontally on the 6.00 kg crate with a force F that gives an acceleration of 2.50 m/s2 .

a) What is the acceleration of the 4.00 kg crate?

The acceleration of the 4.00 kg crate is 2.50 m/s2 , as it is joined to the 6.00 kg crate.

c) What is the tension T of the rope between the crates.

Let m1 and m2 denote the masses of the 4.00 kg crate and the 6.00 kg crate respectively.

We have

T = m2 a = 4.00 2.50 = 10 N.

d) What is the net force on the 6.00 kg crate?

We have

Fnet = m1 a = 6.00 2.5 = 18 N.

e) What is the magnitude of the force, F .

By Newtons second law, we have

Fnet = 18 = F T = F 10.

Thus

F = 28 N.

Problem 5. If we know F (t), the force as a function of time, for straight line motion, Newtons second

law gives us a(t), the acceleration as a function of time. We can then integrate a(t) to find v(t) and x(t).

However, suppose we know F (v) instead.

a) P

The net force on a body moving along the x-axis equals Cv 2 . Use Newtons second law, written as

F = m dv/dt and two integrations to show that x x0 = (m/C) ln(v0 /v).

We have
