ISBN 9781133947271 # A small object with mass 4.00 kg moves counter-clockwise with constant angular speed 1.50 rad/s in a circle of radius 3.00 m centered at the origin. It starts at the point with position vector $3.00\stackrel{^}{i}m$. It then undergoes an angular displacement of 9.00 rad. (a) What is its new position vector? Use unit-vector notation for all vector answers. (b) In what quadrant is the particle located, and what angle does its position vector make with the positive x axis? (c) What is its velocity? (d) In what direction is it moving? (e) What is its acceleration? (f) Make a sketch of its position, velocity, and acceleration vectors. (g) What total force is exerted on the object?

The new position vector of object is $\left(-2.74\stackrel{^}{i}+1.22\stackrel{^}{j}\right)m$.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Identification of given data

The mass of object is m = 4 kg

The constant angular speed of object is $\omega =1.50rad/s$

The radius of circle is R = 3m

The angular displacement of object is $\delta =9rad$

## Step 2: Conceptual Explanation

The angular speed of an object is the rate of variation of the angular displacement of the object with time.

## Step 3: Determination of new position vector

The angle for the new position vector is given as:

$\alpha =\delta \left(\frac{180°}{\pi }\right)-360\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\left(9rad\right)\left(\frac{180°}{\pi rad}\right)-360°\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=156°$

The new position vector of object is given as:

$\stackrel{\to }{r}=R\left(\mathrm{cos}\alpha \stackrel{^}{i}+\mathrm{sin}\alpha \stackrel{^}{j}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\left(3m\right)\left[\left(\mathrm{cos}156°\right)\stackrel{^}{i}+\left(\mathrm{sin}156°\right)\stackrel{^}{j}\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\left(-2.74\stackrel{^}{i}+1.22\stackrel{^}{j}\right)m$

Therefore, the new position vector of object is $\left(-2.74\stackrel{^}{i}+1.22\stackrel{^}{j}\right)m$ . ### Want to see more solutions like these?
