Practice 1: Energy Pie Charts

INSTRUCTIONS: Use pie charts to analyze the energy changes in each situation given. Designate your choice of system by explicitly listing the objects included. Divide the pies in a qualitatively accurate fashion, and label them with the energy storage mechanism involved. 1. ! A ball is held above the ground, and then is dropped so it falls straight down. (Restrict your analysis to the ball moving in the air, BEFORE it hits the ground.)

Draw a pie chart for each position

2.

A wind-up toy is wound up, then "walks" across a table and comes to a stop.

19. A moving block hits a spring, traveling at 5 m/s at the time of contact. At the instant the block is motionless, by how much is the spring compressed? Assume none of the initial energy ends up stored as thermal energy.

Practice 3: Problem Solving

21. Your cousin Throckmorton pulls a 50 kg box with a force of 100 N. The coefcient of kinetic friction is 0.15. The box starts with a speed of 1.2 m/s and moves 6 meters before you get bored watching your cousin pull a box.

22. A 24 kg child descends a 5.0 m high slide and reaches the ground with a speed of 2.8 m/s.

23. A chunk of rock of mass 50.0 kg slides down the side of a volcano that slopes up at an angle of 30.0 to the horizontal. If the rock accelerates at a rate of 3.0 m/s2, what is the coefcient of kinetic friction between the rock and the side of the volcano?

24. A man stands on the roof of a building that is 30.0 m tall and throws a rock with a velocity of magnitude 40.0 m/s at an angle of 33.0 degrees above the horizontal. Air resistance may be ignored.

25. A 0.500 kg block attached to a spring with length 0.60 m and spring constant 40 N/m is at rest with the back of the block at point A on a very low-friction, horizontal table. You pull the block to the right along the surface with a constant horizontal force of 20 N. When the back of the block reaches point B, you let go of the block.

26. A 2.00 kg package is released from rest on a 53.1 incline, 4.00 m from a long spring with a 140 N/m spring constant that is attached at the bottom of the incline. The coefcients of friction between the package and the incline are s = 0.40 and k = 0.20.

27. In a physics lab experiment, a spring clamped to the table shoots a 20 g ball horizontally. When the spring is compressed 20 cm, the ball travels horizontally 5.0 m and lands on the oor 1.5 meters below the point at which it left the spring.
