       1. Answer each of the questions below.
              a) What is the net force required to give an automobile of mass 1600 kg an acceleration of 4.5 m/s 2?

              c) What is the mass of a block of iron if a net force of 240 N causes it to accelerate across a smooth horizontal
                   surface at 2.5 m/s2?

       4. A 20 kg object is at rest. A force of 200 N is required to set the block in motion. Once the object is in motion, it will

           horizontal, and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.30, determine

                   a.    the normal force exerted on the crate by the floor
                   b.    the horizontal frictional force exerted on the crate by the floor
                   c.    the acceleration of the crate

       9. An 8.0 g bullet traveling at 400 m/s passes through a heavy block of wood in 4.0 x 10 –4 s, emerging with a velocity of
             100 m/s. Ignore any motion of the wood.

                  a) with what average force did the wood oppose the motion of the bullet?
                  b) how thick is the block of wood?

       10. A 0.22 caliber rifle shoots a bullet of mass 1.8 g with a muzzle velocity (exit velocity) of 500 m/s. If the barrel is 25
             cm long, what is the average force exerted on the bullet while it is in the barrel?

       14. A child’s wagon experiences a frictional force of 73 N whenever it is in motion, regardless of the load it is carrying.
            An applied horizontal force of 128 N causes the wagon to accelerate at 5.0 m/s 2. The same applied force, with a
            child on the wagon, causes it to accelerate at 1.0 m/s2. What is the mass of the child?

       15. A 10 kg box is pushed with a 50 N horizontal force. The coefficient of friction between the box and the ground is 0.4.
            Determine the acceleration of the box.
       16. A 45 N force is applied to a 10 kg toy causing it to accelerate at 0.58 m/s 2. Determine the coefficient of friction.

       17. A 15 kg box falls off the back of a truck traveling at 20 m/s. It comes to rest in 12 meters. Determine the coefficient of
            friction between the box and the road.
18. A gardener pushes down along the handle of a lawn mower of 20 kg mass with a force of 150 N. The handle makes an
      angle of 60° with the ground. Calculate the instantaneous acceleration of the mower if the frictional force between
      its wheels and the ground at that instant is 25 N.

19. A man drags a package across the floor by pulling it with a rope. He pulls with a force of a 40 N, but there is an angle
     between the rope and the ground. The mass of the package is 10 kg. If the acceleration of the package is 3.5 m/s 2,
     and friction can be neglected, at what angle to the horizontal does the man pull?

20. A boy with a mass of 30 kg pulls a cart with a mass of 100 kg towards himself by a rope. With what force does he
      have to pull on the rope to accelerate the cart at 2.0 m/s2? With what force must his feet push on the ground to keep
      him from moving towards the cart? If there is no friction between his feet and the ground, what is his acceleration?

21. A 12 kg sled is being pulled by a 100 N force at an angle of 50 o above the ground. The coefficient of friction between
