1. (a) The second hand of the smoothly running watch turns through 2 radians during 60 s . Thus, 2 0.105 rad/s. 60 = = (b) The minute hand of the smoothly running watch turns through 2 radians during 3600 s . Thus, = = 2 3600 175 10 3 . r a d / s . (c) The hour hand of the smoothly running 12-hour watch turns through 2 radians during 43200 s. Thus, = = 2 43200 145 10 4 . r a d / s . 2. The problem asks us to assume v com and are constant. For consistency of units, we write v com mi h ft mi 60min h ft min = F H G I K J = 85 5280 7480 b g . Thus, with x = 60ft , the time of flight is t x v = = = com 60 7480 0 00802 . m i n . During that time, the angular displacement of a point on the balls surface is = = t 1800 0 00802 14 rev min rev . b g b g . m i n 3. We have = 10 rad/s. Since = 0, Eq. 10-13 gives = t = (10 rad/s)( n t ), for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, . For t = 0.20 s, we always get an integer multiple of 2 (and 2 radians corresponds to 1 revolution). (a) At f 1 = 2 rad the dot appears at the 12:00 (straight up) position. (b) At f 2 , = 4 rad and the dot appears at the 12:00 position. t = 0.050 s, and we explicitly include the 1/2 conversion (to revolutions) in this calculation: = t = (10 rad/s) n (0.050 s) 1 2 = , , , 1, (revs) (c) At f 1 (n=1) , = 1/4 rev and the dot appears at the 3:00 position. (d) At f 2 (n=2) , = 1/2 rev and the dot appears at the 6:00 position. (e) At f 3 (n=3) , = 3/4 rev and the dot appears at the 9:00 position. (f) At f 4 (n=4) , = 1 rev and the dot appears at the 12:00 position. Now t = 0.040 s, and we have = t = (10 rad/s) n (0.040 s) 1 2 = 0.2 , 0.4 , 0.6 , 0.8, 1, (revs) Note that 20% of 12 hours is 2.4 h = 2 h and 24 min. (g) At f 1 (n=1) , = 0.2 rev and the dot appears at the 2:24 position. (h) At f 2 (n=2) , = 0.4 rev and the dot appears at the 4:48 position. (i) At f 3 (n=3) , = 0.6 rev and the dot appears at the 7:12 position. (j) At f 4 (n=4) , = 0.8 rev and the dot appears at the 9:36 position. (k) At f 5 (n=5) , = 1.0 rev and the dot appears at the 12:00 position. 4.

Also, in our manipulations we will generally not display the coefficients with their proper number of significant figures. ... View Full Document
