Dear Recipient, You are privileged to obtain a partial collection of answers for MEG 207 Dynamics. This document was compiled from PDF files collected during Fall of 2002 and Spring 2003. I have complied them into one document with Bookmarks to aid you in quickly finding the solutions you need. Unfortunately this isn’t a complete compilation of all of the answers, butcomprehensive enough to help complement your studies. Engineering Mechanics, Dynamics, Second Edition. ISBN: 0-471-05339-2

Enter SI units in all answer spaces with brackets ( ). 1. (15 points) A vehicle traveling at 108 km/h suddenly decelerates at a rate of3 m/s . a) Determine the time needed for the vehicle to come to rest. b) Determine the distance traveled between the beginning of braking, and the full stop.

3. (20 points) Pin P moves at constant speed of 3 m/s in a counterclockwise sense around the circular slot with radius r = 2 m. Determine (a) the angular velocity of P. (b) the totalacceleration vector ( Use polar coordinates: er and eθ directions) of pin P when θ = 30 degrees. (c) the magnitude and angle of the resultant acceleration vector in Cartesian x-y coordinates. (b) no radial or angular accel. In neg. er direction we 2 2 have r*ω = - 2*2.25 m/s (c) Resultant Acceleration is purely inward, thus: o o ax = -4.5*cos 30 and ay = -4.5*sin 30

(magnitude and angle in x-y coordinates) 4. (25 points) Wind-driven rain is falling 0 with a speed of 30 m/s at an angle of 20 to the vertical as shown at left. Determine the angle ψ at which the rain is seen by passengers inside the bus. The bus is traveling at 72 km/h. Vrain = VBus + VRain/bus Vbus = 20m/sψ
v = 72 km/h
x-and y-components of VRain/bus: v R/B,x = -Vbu -- VR*sin(20deg) = -30.2 m/s v R/B,y =-- VR*cos(20deg) = -28.19 m/s = tan (29.19/30.2) = 43 deg.

5. (20 points) In the pulley system shown at left, the cable is attached at C. Mass B moves to the left at vB = 3 m/s, and accelerates y 2 Balso to the left at aB = 0.5 m/s . Using the x-y x C frame with origin at C, determine: (a) the velocity of A (b) the acceleration of A
Differentiation gives: 2 vB = vA and 2 aB = aA
