Question description

1 A bicyclist can coast down a 4o hill to descend the hill at 6 Km/h. The force of friction is proportional to speed v such that Ff = CV where C is a constant. Calculate the average force that must be applied in order to descend the hill at 20 km/h. The mass of the cyclistplus bicycle is 80 kg 

2 A car of mass m is going around a circular turn of radius R , that is banked at an angle θ with respect to the ground. The force that keeps the car towards the center of the circle F= mv2 /R. The coefficient of static friction between the tires and the road is μ . Let g be the magnitude of the gravitational acceleration. You may neglect kinetic friction (that is, the car’s tires do not slip). a) At what speed v0 should the car enter the banked turn if the road is very slippery (that is μ 0 ) in order not to slide up or down the banked turn? b) Suppose μ tan θ < 1. What is the maximum speed v max with which the car can enter the banked turn so that it does not slide up the banked turn? c) Suppose μ tan θ < 1. What is the minimum speed v min with which the car can enter the banked turn so that it does not slide down the banked turn? d) Suppose the car enters the turn with a speed v such that v max > v > v 0 . Find an expression for the magnitude of the friction force.
