At the end of line 2 of the solution, replace “130 m/s” by “88.5 m/s.”

On the second to last line of part (b), replace “60.58 m” by “59.79 m” and replace “38 cm” by “1.17 m”

On the last line, replace “a little more than a foot” by “a little less than 4 feet.”

Page 57, Solution for Problem 4.36

In the last two expressions in the displayed equation of part (a) and in
the whole of part (b), the symbols *m*
and *M* should be interchanged.

Delete the subscripts 1 and 2 from the two masses.

Page 68, Line 4 of Problem 5.17:

Replace the phrase “... and in the second the ...” with

“... and in the third the ...”

Page 103, line 3:

The last term on the right should contain a factor of *R*.

Page 106, second to last line

After the given expression for the frequency, insert

= sqrt(3 *g* / 2* r*_o), since
*l* / *m* = sqrt(*g r*_o^3)

Page 109, Equation (xiv):

The coefficient 8 of the second term on the left should be a 4.

Page 208, line 2 of Problem 13.10:

The plus sign in the first equation should be a minus.

Page 209, equation on line 1:

The plus sign before the term *K y *should
be a minus.

Page 209, lines 6,7, and 8:

Delete the minus sign in front of all four terms involving *K* and change the word “negative” to “positive.”
