PHYS1413 Physics in a NutshellProblem set 1Due Date: 5:00 p.m., March 10, 2008
Answer all questions in this problem set.Please take

in all numerical problems except Q17 and Q18.
 
1. A ship
 B
is steaming on a straight course south-east at a uniform speed of 15 km/h. Another ship
 A
, is adistance of 10 km due north of 
 B
and steams at a speed of 12 km/h. Find the course that
 A
must steer inorder to get as close to
 B
as possible, and their minimum distance apart.2.
 
A projectile is fired with speed
3 / 4
gh
from the top of a cliff of height
h
, and strikes the sea at ahorizontal distance 2
h
from the gun. Find the two possible angles of elevation of the gun.3.
 
A wedge of mass
m
lies on a smooth horizontal plane and a particle of mass
m
is in contact with asmooth inclined face of the wedge. The inclination of this face to the horizontal is 30
o
. The system isreleased from rest with the particle at a vertical height
h
above the horizontal plane. Find(a) the acceleration of the wedge,(b)
 
the time taken by the particle to reach the horizontal plane.4.
 
With what force
must a man pull on a rope in order to support the platform on which he stands, if theweight of the man is
1
and that of the platform is
2
? What is the maximum weight of platform thatthe man can support? Assume that all pulleys are massless and frictionless.

Two particles
 A
, and
 B
, of equal mass are at rest on a smooth horizontal table, joined by a string whichis just taut.
 A
is projected with velocity
u
at 45
o
to
 AB
. Find the velocities of 
 A
and
 B
immediately thestring becomes taut again.6. Spheres
 A
and
 B
are moving with initial velocities
u
 A
and
u
 B
respectively (see figure). If 
 B
is brought torest after impact, and the kinetic energy of 
 A
is unchanged. Find the coefficient of restitution

.7. Two particles each of mass
m
are connected by a light inextensible string and a particle of mass
 M 
isattached to the midpoint of the string. The system is at rest on a smooth horizontal table with the string just taut and in a straight line. The particle
 M 
is given a velocity
along the table perpendicular to thestring. Prove that, when the two end particles are about to collide,(a) the velocity of 
 M 
is

An elastic string of natural length
a
is found to extend

mustbe less than
g/e
and greater than
g/(a+e).
10. A circular hoop rotates with uniform angular velocity

about a vertical diameter
 AOB
,
O
being thecenter. A smooth ring
P
of mass
m
can slide on the hoop. If 
α 
be the angle of inclination of the radius
