AP Physics C 2022 Exam Question 1

  1. A block of mass m is pulled across a rough horizontal table by a string connected to a motor that is attached to the floor. The string passes over a pulley with negligible friction that is vertically aligned with the left edge of the table as shown. The string and pulley both have negligible mass. The pulley is at height H above the table. The motor exerts a constant force of tension FT on the string, and the block remains in contact with the table at all times as the block slides across the table from x = L to x = 0. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the table and the block is μk. Express all algebraic answers in terms of m, H, FT , x, mk, L, and physical constants as appropriate.

2. Cart 1 of mass m1 is held at rest above the bottom of an incline. Cart 2 has mass m2, where m2 > mk, and is at rest at the bottom of the incline. At time t = 0, Cart 1 is released and then travels down the incline and smoothly transitions to the horizontal section. The center of mass of Cart 1 moves a vertical distance of H, as shown. At time tC, Cart 1 reaches the bottom of the incline and immediately collides with and sticks to Cart 2. After the collision, the two-cart system moves with constant speed v. Frictional and rotational effects are negligible.
