Test Ch5 FyBNVC07 Circular Motion


Physics B: FyBNVC07 Circular Motion

Instructions: Time: The Test 9:25-10:40.

Warning! There are more than one version of the test.

At the end of each problem a maximum point which one may get for a correct solution of the problem is given. (2/3/) means 2 G points, 3 VG points and an MVG quality. Approved formula sheets, ruler, and graphic calculator. You may use one page of a personalized formula sheet which has your name on it. This should be submitted along with the test.


Grade limits: Maximum score 32, where 15 of them are VG points and 2 (MVG) Lower limits for examination grade Pass (G): 11 points Pass with distinction (VG): 22 points of which at least 5 VG-points Pass with special distinction (MVG): 25 points of which at least 10 VG-points and you must show several Pass with Special Distinction qualities in at least three of -marked qualities. Problems number 4 and 5 are heavily graded and are of greatest importance for both VG and MVG. You may choose to solve these problems before solving the others.

In assessing your work with problems 4 and 5your teacher will pay extra attentio to: How well you plan and carry out the task. Which priciples of physics you use and how you justify using them How general your solutions are How well you justify your conclusions How well you cary out your calculations How well you present your work How well you use physical and matematical language. How clear your solutions are. 4 Earth Moon Earth-Moon distance At what distance from the Earth will a spacecraft traveling directly from the Earth to the Moon experience zero gravity?

Tarzan whose mass is 125.0 kg swinging in an arc from a hanging 10.0 m vine (rope). If his arms are capable of exerting a maximum force of 2500 N on the vine, a. Calculate the maximum speed he can tolerate in swinging. [1/3] b. Tarzan speeding at 36 km / h grabs the hanging 10.0 m vine and swings out over a lake. He releases the rope when his velocity is zero. Calculate the angle (the angle between the rope and the tree, i.e. vertical) when he releases the rope. [1/4/] c. Calculate the tension in the rope just before he releases it. [1/4] Free to use for educational purposes.
