631 Sample ARCH Exam F2008abn ARCH 631: Sample Exam Note: This is a sample exam with the types of questions that will be on mid-term exams. The subject is Physics 101. The exam is closed book. Part 1) Worth ~50% (~2.5 points each) Circle the answer which best satisfies the statement or question. 1. Center of mass can be best described as which of the following? A. The average mass location when two bodies, each with a mass, are separated by a distance x. B. The single point on a body that moves the way a single particle subjected to a force would move. C. The total mass of the system of particles. 2. The rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the resultant force acting on the body and is in the direction of that force is the definition of A. Linear momentum B. Angular momentum C. Conservation of energy 3. The figure shown to the right illustrates which principle? A. Harmonic oscillation B. Kinetic friction C. Potential energy 4. In order to determine the final velocity of a body under constant acceleration, which of the following must be known? A. Initial velocity, acceleration, and time expired B. Initial velocity, final distance, and time expired C. Rate of change of the acceleration, final distance, and mass 5. What other oscillating systems are analogous to mechanical oscillating bodies? A. Violin strings, and watch pendulums B. Radio waves, microwaves and visible light C. Deformation of elastic bodies obeying Hook's law 6. etc.... 1 ARCH 631 Sample Exam F2008abn Part 2) Worth ~30% (~10 points each) Provide a short, concise and legible answer to the following questions. Show work using any equations, decisions, and/or conclusions in the space provided. 21. A sculptor decides to portray a bird shown in the figure. Luckily the final model is actually able to stand upright. The model is formed of a single sheet of metal of uniform thickness. Of the shown, points which is most likely to be the center of mass and why? 22. How fast must a 1800-lb Volkswagen travel in mi/hr (a) to have the same momentum as a 5.8 k-Cadillac going 1 mi/min? (b) How fast must it go to have the same kinetic energy? v v p = mv v v dp v = ma F= dt v m0 v v p= 2 1- v 2 c K= 1 2 mv 2 1 k = 1000 lb 1 mi = 5,280 ft 1 ft = 12 in. 1 hr = 60 min 1 min = 60 sec 23. When two children play catch on a train, does the kinetic energy of the ball depend upon the speed of the train? Does the reference frame chosen affect your answer? If so, would you call kinetic energy a scalar quantity? Part 3) Worth ~20% (~20 points) Compose a response to the following series of questions with no more than 2/3 of a page of text. The content will be graded in terms of the accuracy, completeness, and relevance of the ideas expressed. The form will be evaluated for clarity, organization, correct spelling and grammar, and legibility. Content will have higher worth than form. Poor format will likely result in unrecognizable content. 24. Three resistors R1 = 25 ohms, R2 = 50 ohms, and R3 = 75 ohms each obey Ohm's law. Thes...
