# Calculate the Velocity of a Carrieage Moving on a Horizontal Rail

**Question**

The carriage weighs 64.4 lb and moves with negligible friction along the horizontal rail. A sinusoidal force F = 10 sin πt in pounds measured positive to the left acts on the carriage as shown. If the carriage has a velocity of 5 ft/sec to the right at t = 0, determine the velocity v_{1} of the' carriage when t = 1sec. By inspection, what is the velocity v_{2} of the carriage when t = 2 sec?

**Summary**

The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about a carriage moving with no friction on a horizontal rail. If the sinusoidal force F = 10 sin πt in pounds measured positive to the left acts on the carriage. The velocity of the carriage has to be calculated. The calculation has been given in the solution in detail.

JaneteHello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
