## Correct answer: 30.5567 .

Explanation:
Take the radially inward direction as the
x-axis and the vertical direction orthogonal
to the x-axis as the y-axis. With the above
choice for axes, the free body diagram leads
to the following equations,
Fcentripetal = max = mv 2 /R
This force must be supplied by the xcomponent of the normal force so
2

mv /R = N sin
Since the car only accelerates in the radially
inward direction, the y-component of the normal force must be equal and opposite to the
gravitational force giving

A body oscillates with simple harmonic motion along the x-axis. Its displacement varies
with time according to the equation
x(t) = A cos( t) .
Given the maximum acceleration amax =
1.5 m/s2 , the period T = 3 s, determine the
amplitude of oscillation, A.
Correct answer: 0.341959 m.
Explanation:
The acceleration is the rate of change
of the velocity and so its also the second
time derivative of the position of the object, i.e. a = dv/dt = d2 x/dt2 . Thus we
have a = 2 A cos( t), which has a maximum amplitude of amax = A 2 . We need
only the angular frequency which is related
to the period by = 2/T so in the end:

A ball of mass M = 9 kg is suspended from a
vertical inextensible string of length = 3 m.
A bullet of mass m = M/2
p travelling with
a horizontal velocity v = 9 g collides with
the ball and gets stuck inside. As a result
of the impact the ball moves in a vertical
circle of radius . Assume that the string
remains taut throughout the motion. What
is the velocity of the ball-bullet system at the
highest point of the trajectory? Remember
that g = 9.8 m/s2 .

Explanation:
From conservation of momentum,

(V)

Explanation:
When the electrons are fired, they have
both kinetic and potential energy. They gain
kinetic energy from to their Coulomb repulsion as they move apart and their electric
potential energy decreases to zero at so
that all of their energy becomes kinetic. If
they were fired at each other and collided,
all of their energy would be potential energy
and they would turn around where the total
energy graph intersects the potential energy
graph. Thus the correct answer is Figure (I).

A metal block of mass 3 kg is falling downward and has velocity of 1.16 m/s when it
is 0.8 m above the floor. It strikes the top
of a relaxed vertical spring of length 0.4 m.
The spring constant is 2000 N/m. After striking the spring, the block rebounds. What is
the maximum height above the floor that the
block reaches after the impact? Take g to be
9.8 m/s2
Correct answer: 0.8687 m.
Explanation:
Let :

m = 3 kg ,
vi = 1.16 m/s ,
yi = 0.8 m , and
g = 9.8 m/s2 .

Since the potentials involved are all conservative, the final energy is equal to the initial
energy. The spring only acts to reverse the
direction of the block so:

## 5. more momentum, and less kinetic energy.

Explanation:
If the collision is elastic, it almost exactly
reverses the momentum vector p of the golf
ball, while the momentum of the struck bowling ball becomes 2 p by conservation of momentum:

p p + pbb

However, it must also be true that the KE
of the recoiling golf ball is only slightly less
than it was initially (since it has nearly the
same speed), so the KE of the struck bowling
ball must be much smaller and equal to that
small difference.

## The heat lost by hot water equals the heat

gained by cold metal plus the water, so
mh cw (Th Tf )
= mAl cAl (Tf Tc ) + mc cw (Tf Tc )
(mh cw + mAl cAl + mc cw ) Tf
= mh cw Tf + mAl cAl Tc + mc cw Tc

Tf =

mh cw Th + mAl cAl Tc + mc cw Tc
mh cw + mAl cAl + mc cw

Since
mh cw Th + mAl cAl Tc + mc cw Tc
= (226 g) (1 cal/g C) (95 C)
+ (24 g) (0.215 cal/g C) (30 C)
+ (64 g) (1 cal/g C) (30 C)
= 23544.8 cal and
mh cw + mAl cAl + mc cw
= (226 g) (1 cal/g C)
+ (24 g) (0.215 cal/g C)
+ (64 g) (1 cal/g C)
= 295.16 cal/C ,

A 51.8 kg man sits on the back end of a 7.3 m
long boat. The front of the boat touches the
pier, but the boat isnt tied. The man notices

front, but by the time he reaches the front,
its moved 3.59 m away from the pier.
Assuming no water resistance to the boats
motion, calculate the boats mass (not counting the man).
Correct answer: 53.5315 kg.
Explanation:
In the absence of external forces, the center
of mass of the manboat system remains at
rest. So if the man moves distance Xman
and the boat moves distance Xboat , then we
must have

A bubble of marsh gas rises from the bottom
of a freshwater lake at a depth of 4.64 m and a
temperature of 4 C to the surface, where the
water temperature is 17.9 C.
What is the ratio of the bubble diameter at
the two locations? (Assume that the bubble
gas is in thermal equilibrium with the water
at each location.)
Remember that the final pressure at the
surface of the lake is atmospheric pressure,
i.e. Pf = Pa = 1.01 105 Pa, and at the
bottom of the lake the initial pressure is given
by Pi = Pa + g h.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2 and
the density of water is = 1000 kg/m3 .
Correct answer: 1.15053.
Explanation:

## Mman Xman + Mboat Xboat = 0 .

Now, lets be careful about the displacements. Taking the back-to-front direction to
be positive, we have the boat moving backward, so
Xboat = 3.59 m < 0.
As to the man, his displacement relative to the
boat is the boats full length (back to front),
so
Xrel = +Lboat = +7.3 m,

## A figure skater on ice spins on one foot so

there is minimal friction. She pulls in her
arms and her rotational speed increases.
Choose the best statement below:
1. When she pulls in her arms, her rotational potential energy increases as her arms
approach the center.
2. When she pulls in her arms, her rotational
kinetic energy is conserved and therefore stays
the same.
3. When she pulls in her arms, her rotational
kinetic energy must decrease because of the
decrease in her moment of inertia.
4. When she pulls in her arms, her moment
of inertia is conserved.
5. When she pulls in her arms, her angular momentum decreases so as to conserve
energy.
6. When she pulls in her arms, the work
she performs on them turns into increased
rotational kinetic energy. correct

Explanation:
The work due to a conservative force only
depends on the initial and final positions, being completely independent of the path taken.
This is true of the gravitational force, the
spring force, and the electric force, but is also
true for any force that is constant in both
magnitude and direction.
The directions of the forces of friction and
air resistance both depend on the direction
in which the object in question is moving,
and hence the particular path taken from the
initial position to the final position is important. These two are therefore not conservative
forces.
