A cart for hauling ore out of a gold mine has a mass of 423 kg, including its load. The cart runs along a straight stretch of track that is sloped 4.51

givent aht

mass m = 423 kg

coeffiecient of friction ? = 0.0127

accleration due to gravity g = 9.8 m/s^{2}

inclied angel ?_{2} = 4.51

inclined angel ?_{1} = 13.1

distance travelled d = 159 m

applied fore F = 535 N

the component of the force from the donkey in the direction of motion is

F_{2} = F_{1} cos?_{1}

=521.08
N

from the free body diagram

?F_{y} = N - mg cos?_{2} = 0

N = mg cos?_{2}

= 4132.56 N

?F_{x} = F_{2} - mg sin?_{2} - f =
ma

here f = ? N

=
52.48

F_{2} - mg sin?_{2} - f = ma

a = F_{2} - mg sin?_{2} - f/ m

= 0.337 m/s^2

work done by donkey

W = F_{2} d

=82851.72 J

work done by gravity

W = - mg sin?_{2} d

= -51828.53 J

work done by friction W = - fd

= - 8344.32 J

A frictionless cart of mass ? = 4.00 kg has a shape of a ramp
with an incline angle ? = 60.0°. The ramp is pulled by a constant
horizontal force ? = 15.0 N. Another frictionless cart of mass? =
2.00 kg can roll along the ramp and is attached to the top of the
ramp at point ? by a spring of constant ? = 300. N/m. The spring is
free to pivot without friction around point ?....

4) Two carts collide on a level track. Cart A has mass of 3 kg
and cart B has mass of 5 kg. Before the collision cart A moves
towards stationary cart B with the speed of 5 m/s.
a) What is the momentum of the system of two carts before the
collision?
b) What is the kinetic energy of the system of two carts before
the collision?
c) What is the momentum of the system of two carts after...

Hickock Mining is evaluating when to open a gold mine. The mine has 60,000 ounces of gold left that can be mined, and mining operations will produce 7,500ounces peryear. The required return on the gold mine is 12%, and it will cost $14million to open the mine. When the mine is opened, the company will sign a contract that willguarantee the price of gold for the remaining life of the mine. If the mine is opened today, each ounce of...

A 1.0-kg standard cart collides on a low-friction track with
cart A. The standard cart has an initial xcomponent of
velocity of +0.40 m/s, and cart A is initially at rest. After the
collision the x component of velocity of the standard cart
is +0.20 m/s and the x component of velocity of cart A is
+0.70 m/s . After the collision, cart A continues to the end of the
track and rebounds with its speed unchanged. Before the carts...

a cart with a mass of 100 kg is traveling down a 5% grade. the
coefficient of drag of the area is Cd = 0.05 based on a frontal
area of 0.6 m^2. coefficient of friction for the wheels is mu =
0.0062. Find terminal velocity? assuming started at a standstill
find distance to get to terminal velocity?

2. A mining company is evaluating when to open a gold mine. The
mine has 80,000 ounces of gold left that can be mined and mining
operations will produce 10,000 ounces per year. When the mine is
opened, the company will sign a contract that will guarantee the
price of gold for the remaining life of the mine. If the mine is
opened today, each ounce of gold will generate an after-tax cash
flow (= net or total cash flow)...

(5) A mining company is evaluating when to open a gold mine.
The mine has 48,000 ounces of gold left and mining operations can
generate 6000 ounces/year.
The required rate of return is 12%
It will cost $34 million to open the mine.
When the company opens the mine, it will sign a contract
guaranteeing the price of gold for the remaining life of the
mine.
If the mine is opened today, each ounce of gold will generate an
after...

Hickock Mining is evaluating when to open a gold mine. The mine
has 60,300 ounces of gold left that can be mined, and mining
operations will produce 6,700 ounces per year. The required return
on the gold mine is 11 percent, and it will cost $34.7 million to
open the mine. When the mine is opened, the company will sign a
contract that will guarantee the price of gold for the remaining
life of the mine. If the mine is...

Hickock Mining is evaluating when to open a gold mine. The mine
has 45,900 ounces of gold left that can be mined, and mining
operations will produce 5,100 ounces per year. The required return
on the gold mine is 11 percent, and it will cost $33.1 million to
open the mine. When the mine is opened, the company will sign a
contract that will guarantee the price of gold for the remaining
life of the mine. If the mine is...

EXCEL SOLVER: A gold processor has two sources
of gold ore, source A and source B. In order to keep his plant
running, at least three tons of ore must be processed each day. Ore
from source A costs $20 per ton to process, and ore from source B
costs $10 per ton to process. Costs must be kept to less than $80
per day. Moreover, Federal Regulations require that the amount of
ore from source B cannot exceed twice...
