Textbook Problem

Draw a free-body diagram for each of the following objects: (a) a projectile in motion in the presence of air resistance, (b) a rocket leaving the launch pad with its engines operating, and (c) an athlete running along a horizontal track.

(a)

To determine
The free body diagram for a projectile motion in the presence of air resistance.

Explanation

Projectile motion involves a body that is thrown from the Earth's surface which undergoes a curved path of motion under the influence of gravity.

Consider a projectile launched at an angle θ with respect to the horizon. Let m be the mass of the projectile.

The free body diagram for the projectile motion is,

  • Fair is the air resistance

(b)

To determine
The free body diagram of a rocket leaving the launch pad.

(c)

To determine
The free body diagram of an athlete running on a horizontal track.
