It would appear since the acceleration is upward and the collar can only move at a path which is 45 degrees from the vertical, the acceleration force in that direction would be .707(4 meter/sec^2) Just a swag lol.

Thanks for replying but book answer says that a=7.49 m/s^2 at an angle of 22.8 degrees measured from neg-x axis counterclockwise.

It was just a guess (with some wrong thinkin)

|dw:1332554742554:dw| The collar C would have two accelerations - one in the upper direction, and one along the shaft AB. Can you find the resultant of these two vectors? \[a=\sqrt{a 1^{2}+a2^{2}+2a1a2\cos 45}\] a1=4 a2=4cos45

What about component of weight of collar C?, it doesnt come to the picture?

ans=6.324

Oh, yes you are right. The downward acceleration net will be mg-m4 and the inclined acceleration will be mgcos45-4cos45, Now see

I made a Free Body Diagram, could you review it please?

The component of the weight along AB is mgcos45 and perpendicular to it is mgsin45.

I was guessing with numbers and I got correct answer if a(c/a) =(g+4)*COS(45) at an angle of -45 deg measured from -X axis counterclock wise, but I cant set 2nd Newton's Law correctly for this.
anonymous
  • anonymous
a(c) = a(c/a) + a(a) (vectorial addition) gives the answer stated in the book. My problem is I cant get a(c/a) correctly.
Mani_Jha
  • Mani_Jha
The acceleration along the incline would be (g-4)cos45. I am pretty sure.
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[(g+4)SIN(45)\left\{ 225\deg \right\}+4\left[ 90\deg \right]\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got the same result, but with that value I cant get the answer stated in the book. This is pretty weird.
Mani_Jha
  • Mani_Jha
The answer is not important. gcos45 is the acceleration due to wight acting downwards, and 4cos45 is the acceleration due to A moving upwards. They are in opposite directions, see? Maybe the answer in your book is wrong.
anonymous
  • anonymous
A guy showed me the solutions manual for this problem, and the result is the same stated at the book, but I didnt understand how the author sets the 2nd Newton's Law.

It supossed that 2nd Newtons Law can only be expressed relative to an inertial frame, but AB is moving upward, and this is not an inertial frame!!!.
anonymous
  • anonymous
This book is plenty of problems of this caliber!!!.
Mani_Jha
  • Mani_Jha
Oh ok. then you've got to use 'fictitious' or 'pseudo' forces. We generally add a force opposite to the direction of the frame's acceleration. |dw:1332558039957:dw| a=4 Now if you take components you would get acceleration along the incline to be (g+4)cos45
anonymous
  • anonymous
¿such as an action-reaction pair?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Your pseudo force is directed downwards (-90degs)??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Did you mean this??See JPG

The component in the graph should be COS45. Sorry
Mani_Jha
  • Mani_Jha
No, it's not an action-reaction pair. From an inertial frame, we read measurements wrong because of the frame's acceleration. So,we just add a force in the other direction to make things right. Yup, pseudo force should be taken opposite to the direction of the frame's acceleration. The forces should be both downwards, so that mgcos45+mg=ma
anonymous
  • anonymous
But that's not resulting in (g+4)COS45. ¿Am I right?
Mani_Jha
  • Mani_Jha
Oh sorry, along the incline the net force would be macos45+mgcos45. ma and mg both act downwards and so their components must be in the same direction. get it now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I get now your point, but still cant dig ma downwards along with mg.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Numerically your model makes sense. but, ¿did you reviewed the jpg from the solutions? ma is directed upwards!!!!.

Haha, I live in Ecuador; if I would ask any universitary physics teacher about this, surely he would falls down and die of a brain attack. Anyway, many thanks to you for your efforts. You deserve a medal mate. Cheers.

|dw:1332580841706:dw| |dw:1332580956697:dw| the normal reaction shud balance 6cos45 in th upward direction of C so only 6sin45 operates in the direction toward AA right? how did u guys get 2 components of acceleration and direction of acceleration?

Hi Salini, Did you see this?, let me know your comments. http://assets.openstudy.com/updates/attachments/4f6d1696e4b0772daa0812c0-juancarlosquintero_ec-1332557149257-dibujo1.jpg

To make sense the analysis of the previous post: Net "Real" forces at X and Y sould "equal" "Pseudoforces", let me know what do you think about this.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What could be an accurate concept of Pseudo forces? any force caused by relative/alien accelerations to a body being analyzed?, if so, what about gravity (g)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
hi juancarlosquintero, i saw that i dint get the method...will tell u if i figure it out abt pseudo forces,dont worry abt them while solving problems as pseudo forces arent that necessary but when u do a perceived gravity concept,it might be more than helpful for example if u are accelerating in your car in the left direction then u perceieve or feel a force pulling you in the opposite direction to the cars motion(that is towards the right side) to get to know more abt this pseudo perceieved gravity concept take alookk at this video(it helps a lot!) http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-01-physics-i-classical-mechanics-fall-1999/video-lectures/lecture-7/ i will find the exact part and lett u know abt it
