The four balls in FIGURE Q6.9 have been thrown straight up. They have the same size, but different masses. Air resistance is negligible. Rank in order, from largest to smallest, the magnitude of the net force acting on each ball. Some may be equal. Give your answer in the form and explain your ranking.
The magnitude of net forces of each ball is ranked in order:
From the step 1 results, we get ranked in order:
An accident victim with a broken leg is being placed traction. The patient wears a special boot with a pulley attached to the sole. The foot and boot together have a mass of 4.0 kg and the doctor has decided to hang a 6.0 kg mass from the rope. The boot is held suspended by the ropes, as shown in FIGURE P6.41, and does not touch the bed a. Determine the amount of tension in the rope by using Newton’s laws to analyze the hanging mass. b. The net traction force needs to pull straight out on the leg. What is the proper angle u for the upper rope? c. What is the net traction force pulling on the leg? Hint: If the pulleys are frictionless, which we will assume, the tension in the rope is constant from one end to the other.
