In a recent publication of Nature, Australian scientists determined that during the last ice age

(22,000 to 19,000 years ago) the sea level reached its low point, 425 to 440 feet below the

present level due to the change of sea water to glacial ice.

a) What approximate volume of ice would this correspond to?

b) If this additional ice were evenly divided between the polar ice caps, estimate how far the

northern hemisphere ice sheet would extend southward.

Two stones are released from rest at a certain height, one after the other.

a) Will the difference in their speeds increase, decrease, or stay the same?

b) Will their separation distance increase, decrease, or stay the same?

c) Will the time interval between the instants at which they hit the ground be smaller than,

equal to, or larger than the time interval between the instants of their release?

a) Hold a dime at arms length. What angle in radians is subtended by the diameter of the

dime?

b) Using your result from part a), estimate the length of the infinite corridor at MIT. In order

to do this, choose a reference height at one end of the corridor and estimate its height.

Then go to the other end of the corridor and measure what fraction of the diameter of the

dime corresponds to your reference height. You can now calculate the length of the

corridor by using similar triangles. The length is published by MIT. Can you find the

published value?

c) Now use your dime and wait until the moon is out (the moon is new on Sept. 14 so you

need to make a measurement as quickly as possible on the quarter moon) to try an

estimate the angular diameter of the moon. If you could not measure the moon, recall that

during a total eclipse, the moon is almost exactly the same angular diameter as the sun. If

it takes the sun two minutes to set (ignore atmospheric distortions), what is the angular

diameter of the moon? Once you have this estimate, what additional information would

you need in order to estimate the mass of the moon? Make some estimates regarding

these additional quantities and then estimate the mass of the moon. Look up the actual

value and compare it with your estimate. How did you do?

Chapter in course notes)

A person starts running with a constant velocity trying to catch a streetcar that is initially

2.0 101 m away from a person and has just started to accelerate from rest with a constant

acceleration of 0.9 m s 2 . The person runs just fast enough to catch the streetcar and hop on.

a) Describe the strategy you have chosen for solving this problem. You may want to

consider the following issues. What does a sketch of the problem look like? What type of

coordinate system will you choose? What information can you deduce from a plot of

distance vs. time for both the person and the streetcar? What conditions must be satisfied

when the person just catches up to the streetcar

b) Now show all your work in answering the following three questions. How long did the

person run? What is the velocity of the person when they just caught up to the streetcar?

How far did the person run?

September 15 (read Experiment 2)

Read Experiment 2 before you begin this problem.

In the Experiment 2: Projectile Motion, a ball of diameter is allowed to roll through a tube that

makes an angle with respect to the horizontal. The ball leaves the tube at a height h above the

ground. Just as it leaves the tube, the ball passed a photogate which measures the voltage across

a photo-transistor. The width of the graph of voltage vs. time at half maximum is T . The ball

has diameter D . Find an expression in terms of the given information for the horizontal distance

the ball traveled when it just hits the ground.
