2 PART I: MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS (question 1 to 1) For each question circle the one correct answer (A, B, C, D or E). 1. (.5 point) A ball is projected upward at time t = 0.0 s, from a point on a roof 90 m above the ground. The ball rises, then falls and strikes the ground. The initial velocity of the ball is 8.4 m/s. Consider all quantities as positive in the upward direction. The velocity of the ball when it is 73 m above the ground is closest to: A) -101 m/s B) -68 m/s C) -34 m/s D) -51 m/s E) -84 m/s Use v y = v 0y g( y y 0 ) v y = v 0y g( y y 0 ), with y 0 = 0, v 0y = 8.4 m/s and y = - 17 m. Note y is the final position above the ground, so if we take y 0 = 0 to be the initial position (on the roof) then the position of the ground is 90 m, it follows that 73 m above the ground is y = - 17 m. Hence v y = 8.4 m 9.8 m 17m 0 s s ( ) = 84.4 m s ANSWER: e, the answer is negative since at that point the ball is falling.. (.5 point) Two identical balls are thrown directly upward, ball A at speed v and ball B at speed v, and they feel no air resistance. Which statement about these balls is correct? A) Ball B will go four times as high as ball A because it has four times the initial kinetic energy. B) Ball B will go twice as high as ball A because it has twice the initial speed. C) The balls will reach the same height because the have the same mass and the same acceleration D) At their highest point, the acceleration of the ball is instantaneously equal to zero because they stop for an instant. E) At its highest point, ball B will have twice as much gravitational potential energy as ball A because it started out moving twice as fast Ball A has initial KE 1 mv, while Ball B has initial KE 1 m ( v ) = 4 1 mv, so it is clear that ball B has four times the KE of ball A. Only answer a) states this fact. At the highest point the KE is converted to PE equals to mgh. Since both A and B have the same mass, ball B will rise four times higher. ANSWER: A 3.

3 Use rad/s. The wheel is run at that angular velocity for 39 s and then power is shut off. The wheel decelerates uniformly at.6 rad/s until the wheel stops. In this situation, the angular acceleration of the wheel between t = 0 s and t = 10 s is closest to: A) 5.9 rad/s B) 7.6 rad/s C) 4. rad/s D) 5.0 rad/s E) 6.7 rad/s ω z = ω 0z + α z t α z = ω z ω 0z t 4rad / s 0 α z = 10s Answer: C = 4. rad s with ω 0z = 0 and ω z = 4 rad s, which gives 5. (.5 point) A packing crate rests on a horizontal surface. Three horizontal forces act on it: 600 N to the left, 00 N to the right, and friction force. The weight of the crate is 400 N. If the 600-N force is removed, the resultant force is: A) Zero B) 00N to the left C) 00N to the right D) 400N to the left E) impossible to determine from information given In the initial condition, the system is at equilibrium, there is an applied force of 400 N to the left, which must be balanced by a static friction force of f s = 400N to the right. This means that the maximum value of static friction is at least 400 N. In the second scenario, the 600-N force is removed leaving only the 00N force to the right, which will again be canceled by friction. Hence the net force will be zero. ANSWER A) 6.

The external force is removed, and the block is projected with a velocity v 1 = 1. m/s upon separation from the spring. The block descends a ramp and has a velocity v = 1.4 m/s at the bottom. The track is frictionless between points A and B. The block enters a rough section at B, extending to E. The coefficient of kinetic friction is The velocity of the block is v 3 = 1.4 m/s at C.

E).4 HINT: Using Hooke s law the force that holds the spring obeys the relation kx = 65N To answer the question we only need to consider all data in the vicinity where the box is in contact with the spring. Using the fact that the box start from rest and has a final speed of v 1 = 1. m/s, and using conservation of energy (no friction) we obtain 1 mv 1 = 1 kx, where x is the maximum (initial) compression of the spring.

For the left force the moment arm is r,l = m sin30 = 1m, giving ccw torque + of τ L = 5N r,l = 5N im. Net torque is τ net = τ L +τ R = 15N im. ANSWER D 1. (.5 points) A massless meter stick on a horizontal frictionless table top is pivoted at the 80-cm mark. A Force F 1 is applied perpendicularly to the end of the stick at 0 cm as shown. A second force F (not shown) is applied perpendicularly at the 60-cm mark. The forces are in the plane of the table top. If the stick does not move, the force exerted at the pivot on the stick: HINT: It is possible to infer the direction of by the information in the question A) must be zero B) must be in the same direction as and have a magnitude C) must be directed opposite to and have a magnitude D) must be in the same direction as and have a magnitude E) must be directed opposite to and have a magnitude If the stick does not move then it is in static equilibrium. The net torque about the pivot (or any other axes) must be zero. Since F 1 induces a CW torque ( F 1 (1m) ), F (BLUE ARROW) must point down to induce a CCW torque ( F (0.6m) ). The net torque must be zero or F 1 ( 1m)+ F ( 0.6m) = 0 F 1 = 0.6F, and F > F 1. For static equilibrium the net force must be zero. F 1 + F + F P = 0 F p = F 1 F. The pivot force, F p (RED ARROW). Since F > F 1, the direction of F 1 to cancel F 1 F. The magnitude is simply F 1 + F or F F 1. ANSWER: D For B 1.5 point 5

Initial speed v 0 = 6.7 m/s x 1.0 m a) Use the work-energy theorem or conservation of energy to find the speed (v 1 ) of the crate when it reaches the spring 1.00 m away from its initial position.

(10 points) A hockey puck B rest on a frictionless ice surface is struck by a second puck A, which was initially traveling at 40 m/s as shown in the diagram below. After the collision, the pucks are deflected as shown below. Assume the puck have the same mass. a) Find the speed of each puck after the collision 8

In part (b) it is shown that the kinetic energy decreases. Hence total mechanical energy is not conserved and the collision is not elastic. point 17. (10 points) In the figure to the left, a stuntman of mass 80.0 kg swings on a rope from a 5.0 m high ledge towards a 70.0 kg villain standing on the ground. Assume stuntman is initially at rest. Also assume that the stuntman velocity is horizontal just before he collides with the villain. A) What is the speed of the stuntman just before he hits the villain? This is found by using conservation of mechanical energy; basically the stuntman s energy at the top must equal his energy just before he hits the villain. grav Take the gravitational PE to be zero at the bottom, U bottom = 0 and U grav top = m s gh (m s = 80.0kg, h = 5.0 m) at the top. 1 Conservation of energy m sgh = msvs, where v s is the stuntman s speed just before collision. m s gh = 1 m v s s v s = gh = ( 9.8m / s )( 5.0m) = 9.9m / s (4 points) B) What is the horizontal component of the velocity of the stuntman just before he hits the villain? Hint: Look carefully at the diagram. Obviously, at the bottom just before the collision the stuntman s velocity is horizontal, so the horizontal component of the velocity is 9.9m/s. ( points) C) Just after they (stuntman + villain) collide, and become entangled, what is their speed as they slide on the floor? Assume the floor is frictionless.

10 Use conservation of momentum of the horizontal component before and after the stuntman + villain collision. m s v s = ( m s + m v )v f, m s = 70.0 kg and v f the final speed of the entangled pair. ( )( 9.9m / s) v f = m v s s = 80.0kg m s + m v 80.0kg kg = 5.8m / s (4 points) 18. (10 points) In the diagram below, a solid uniform ball ( I = 5 MR, R = 0.15 m) rolls without slipping with a linear speed of 5.0 m/s. It moves up the hill, and goes over a 8 meter high cliff. a) Calculate the linear, v T, and rotational, ω T, speed at the top of the hill. First use conservation of total mechanical energy between position 1 and. U g mv Iω 1 = U g + 1 mv + 1 Iω 1 mv Iω 1 = mgh + 1 mv + 1 Iω Since I = 5 mr 1 Iω 1 = 1 5 mr ω 1 = 1 5 m ( Rω 1). Using the condition for rolling without slipping v 1 = Rω 1 gives 1 Iω 1 = 1 5 mv 1, and similarly 1 Iω = 1 5 mv. 1 mv Iω 1 = mgh + 1 mv + 1 Iω 1 mv mv 1 = mgh + 1 mv mv 1 mv mv 1 = mgh + 1 mv mv 7 10 mv 1 = mgh mv ( points) v = v 1 10 gh = ( 5m / s 7 ) 10 7 ω = v /R = 10rad / s ( 9.8m / s )( 8.0m) = 15.6m / s b) Calculate the linear, v B, and rotational, ω B, speed when it lands on the ground. Now use conservation of total mechanical energy between position and 3. U g + 1 mv + 1 Iω = U g mv Iω 3 = mgh + 1 mv + 1 Iω = 1 mv Iω 3 Now note that as the ball roll up the hill, from position to 3, without slipping, the friction between the ball and ground induces a torque that changes its angular velocity. But as it leaves the cliff to go from position to 3 there is no friction to change the angular velocity: ω = ω 3. This gives mgh + 1 mv + 1 Iω = 1 mv Iω 3 mgh + 1 mv = 1 mv 3 ( points) v 3 = v + gh = ( 15.6m / s) + ( 9.8m / s )( 8.0m) = 7.9m / s ω 3 = v 3 /R = 186rad / s 10

11 C) In part b, if you did the question correctly, the final linear speed of the ball should be greater than the initial speed (5 m/s). Does the fact that this speed is greater than the initial linear speed means that the ball gains energy? Explain your answer in one or two sentences. It is noted that the linear speed at position 3 ( v 3 = 7.9m / s ) is greater than at position 1 ( v = 5m / s ), even though they are at the same height. This is explained by the fact that the kinetic energy includes rotational component. When the ball roll up the hill from 1 to it gains PE of mgh and it loses mgh in KE, which since there is friction both the linear and rotational component lose energy so that v 1 > v and ω 1 > ω. When it falls off the cliff from to 3 it regains mgh in KE, but only the rotational component cannot change so that ω = ω 3, meaning that the linear component v < v 3 regains the whole mgh so that v 1 < v 3, but also ω = ω 3 < ω 1, so the rotational energy at position 3 is less than at 1. However it is noted that the total kinetic energy (rotational + linear) are the same at position 1 and 3. ( points) 19. (10 points) In the figure below, box A and B are connected by a rope-pulley system. Box A moves to the right, and the rope moves over the pulley without slipping, and the pulley has a clockwise angular velocity, ω.

Draw a free body diagram of the pulley showing all the forces (including those due to the hinge) acting on it. The diagrams should include the direction of linear acceleration, a, of m A and m B, and the angular acceleration α of the pulley. The system will decelerate, so that the acceleration is left for A and up for box B. a n v a T B f k A T A B m A g m B g Now we draw a diagram for the wheel below T A α + Take counterclockwise (ccw) as positive Note that the angular acceleration, α, is ccw. R ω Note that angular velocity ω is cw or negative. R T B F Hinge (blue arrow) is the force of the hinge on the wheel that ultimately supports the wheel. b) Use Newton s law for translation and rotation to find the linear acceleration (magnitude and direction) a of m A and m B, and the angular acceleration (magnitude and sense of 11

12 rotation), α, of the pulley. The no-slip condition is useful. Assume the rope does not slip on the pulley. Note thatt A T B. Also you may want to assume that Box B accelerates up.

The man runs onto the carousel and grabs hold of a pole on the rim. +y +x Direction perpendicular to x-y plane indicates +z out of the page indicates z into page USE THIS CONVENTION TO INDICATE THE DIRECTION OF ANGULAR MOMENTUM a) Before the collision, what is the magnitude of the angular momentum of the rotating carousel, L C, with respect to the center of the carousel? What is the direction of L C? Directions (+x, +y, +z, -x, -y, -z) are as indicated in the above figure. 1

13 The magnitude of angular momentum is L C = I c ω c = kgim 1. rad = 9600 kgim s s The rotation is ccw, so using the right hand rule, the direction is out of the the +z direction.

What is the direction of L M? center of carousel R = 3.0 m p = mv = (80 kg) (5.0 m/s) = 400 kg-m/s The angular momentum of a particle is defined as L M = R p, where R is the position vector from the center of the carousel to the particle when it reaches the edge of the carousel, and p is the momentum. Since they are perpendicular the magnitude is simply L M = Rp = 3.00m 400 kgim = 100 kgim s s Using the right hand rule on the diagram above it is easy to that the direction is out of the page in the +z direction. (3.5 points) c) After the collision when the man is on the carousel, what is the magnitude of the final angular velocity of the carousel (with the man on it), ω fc? What is the direction of the final angular velocity ω fc? Note: I total = I C + mr First find the moment of inertia of the carousel with the man on it about the center I total = I C + mr = 8000kgim + 80kg ( 3.0m) = 870kg m. The conservation of angular momentum (only the z-direction is relevant) gives: 9600 kgim kgim L c + L M = I tot ω fc ω fc = s s = 1.4 rad 870kgim s Direction is +z. (3 points) 1.

At the top of the trajectory, the shell explodes into two fragments of equal mass. One fragment, whose speed immediately after the explosion is zero, falls vertically to the ground. 13

14 a) Determine the horizontal distance from the gun to the top of the trajectory (explosion). First find component of initial velocity: v 0x = v 0 cosθ 0 = 19 m s cos5 = 11.7 m s ; v 0 y = v 0 sinθ 0 = 19m s sin5 = m s At top v y = 0 = v oy gt t = v 0 y / g = 14.97mi s 1 9.8mi s = 1.53s The distance is x explosion = v 0x t = 11.7mi s s = 17.9m. (3 points) b) If the shell does not explode, determine the horizontal distance from the gun to the point where the shell hits the ground. Neglect the height of the gun above the ground. First find the time it hits the ground y = y 0 + v 0 y t 1 gt 0 = 0+ v 0 y t 1 gt t v 0 y 1 gt t = 0,t = v 0 y g = 14.97mi s 1 ( ) = 3.06s 9.8mi s The position is x range = v 0x t = 11.7mi s s = 35.8m (3 points) c) Use the result of part a) and b), and the fact that the center-of-mass (COM) position is not affected by the explosion, to determine the position of the second fragment when it hits the ground. For unexploded shell the COM position is x com = x range = 35.8m Let x position of fragment. Since the COM must remain constant we have x com = x range = 0.5mx +0.5mx explosion = x + x explosion 0.5m+ 0.5m x = x range x explosion = ( 35.8m) 17.9m = 53.7m (4 points) 14
