Baby Bounce with a Hooke Description: Application of Hooke's Law One of the pioneers of modern science, Sir Robert Hooke (1635-1703), studied the elastic properties of springs and formulated the law that bears his name. Hooke found the relationship among the force a spring exerts, , the distance from equilibrium the end of the spring is displaced, , and a number called the spring constant (or, sometimes, the force constant of the spring). According to Hooke, the force of the spring is directly proportional to its displacement from equilibrium, or . In its scalar form, this equation is simply . The negative sign indicates that the force that the spring exerts and its displacement have opposite directions. The value of depends on the geometry and the material of the spring; it can be easily determined experimentally using this scalar equation. Toy makers have always been interested in springs for the entertainment value of the motion they produce. One well-known application is a baby bouncer,which consists of a harness seat for a toddler, attached to a spring. The entire contraption hooks onto the top of a doorway. The idea is for the baby to hang in the seat with his or her feet just touching the ground so that a good push up will get the baby bouncing, providing potentially hours of entertainment. http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrint?assignmentID=1144577 9/17/2008 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Page 8 of 20 Part A The following chart and accompanying graph depict an experiment to determine the spring constant for a baby bouncer.

This set of data follows the form of where so is the slope of the line and is the y intercept. For all springs, the force is 0 when the displacement is 0 . This leaves the slope of the line to determine the relationship between displacement and force. What is the slope that you get from the graph? Hint A.2.a Slope equation Slope is given by the change in divided by the change in . In this case, . Express your answer as a fraction in unsimplified form. ANSWER: = All you need to do now is to convert the fraction to its decimal value. Express your answer to two significant figures in newtons per meter. ANSWER: = Part B One of the greatest difficulties with setting up the baby bouncer is determining the right height above the floor so that the child can push off and bounce. Knowledge of physics can be really helpful here. http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrint?assignmentID=1144577 9/17/2008 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Page 9 of 20 If the spring constant , the baby has a mass , and the baby's legs reach a distance from the bouncer, what should be the height of the "empty" bouncer above the floor? Hint B.1 How to approach the problem Use Hooke's law to determine the displacement of the spring from equilibrium given the force the spring must exert to hold up the baby. The displacement must lower the baby toward the floor until the baby's feet can touch. Hint B.2 Which force to use The force the spring exerts is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction to the force exerted on it by the weight of the baby. Part B.3 Find the force exerted by the baby The weight of the baby is equal to the force exerted on the spring. What is the weight of the baby? Hint B.3.a Formula for weight Recall that the weight of an object is given by , where is the mass of the object and is the acceleration due to gravity. Express your answer in newtons to three significant figures. ANSWER: = Part B.4 Find the displacement of the spring Use Hooke's law to determine how far the spring would stretch downward once the baby is placed in the seat. How far does the bottom end of the spring move? Express your answer in meters to two significant figures. http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrint?assignmentID=1144577 9/17/2008 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Page 10 of 20 ANSWER: = To finish the problem, you must consider the length of the baby's legs. Express your answer in meters to two significant figures. ANSWER: = for the spring holding up a baby may not seem very large but you must consider A displacement of how small babies are. Also, once the baby begins jumping up and down, the extra energy allows the spring to stretch further than 0.22 and a resonant frequency may be achieved. At resonance the bouncing may become too violent, leading to a potentially dangerous situation for the little bouncer.

Also, find how many grams of fat a hummingbird needs to fly across the Gulf of Mexico without feeding. Small birds can migrate over long distances without feeding, storing energy mostly as fat rather than carbohydrate. Fat is a good form of energy storage because it provides the most energy per unit mass: 1 gram of fat provides about 9.4 (food) Calories, compared to 4.2 (food) Calories per 1 gram of carbohydrate. Remember that Calories associated with food, which are always capitalized, are not exactly the same as calories used in physics or chemistry, even though they have the same name. More specifically, one food Calorie is equal to 1000 calories of mechanical work or 4186 joules. Therefore, in this problem use the conversion factor . Part A Consider a bird that flies at an average speed of 10.7 average rate of 3.70 and releases energy from its body fat reserves at an (this rate represents the power consumption of the bird). Assume that the bird consumes without stopping for feeding. How far will the bird fly before feeding again? of fat to fly over a distance Hint A.1 How to approach the problem From the average speed of the bird, you can calculate how far the bird can fly without stopping if you know the duration of the flight.

Hint A.3.a Definition of power The average power (measured in watts) is the ratio of the energy transformed in the time interval : Note that power measures either the rate at which energy is transferred (or transformed) or the rate at which work is performed. Hint A.3.b Power: units Power is measured in watts. One watt is equal to 1 joule per second (i.e., Express your answer in hours. ANSWER: = ). Part A.4 Find the distance in terms of average velocity traveled in the time interval at an average speed ? Which of the following expressions gives the distance ANSWER: Now use this expression to find the distance traveled by the bird. Make sure that the units are consistent! Express your answer in kilometers. ANSWER: = Part B http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrint?assignmentID=1144577 9/17/2008 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Page 16 of 20 How many grams of carbohydrate Hint B.1 would the bird have to consume to travel the same distance ? How to approach the problem As stated in the introduction of this problem,1 gram of fat provides about 9.4 Calories, while 1 gram of carbohydrate provides 4.2 Calories. Express your answer in grams ANSWER: = This is more than twice the amount of fat that was needed! In addition, to store 1 gram of carbohydrate (in the form of glycogen, the most common form of animal carbohydrate) about 3 grams of water are needed. Therefore, if energy were stored as carbohydrates, the bird would need to carry more than eight times the fuel mass to perform the same migratory flight! Part C Field observations suggest that a migrating ruby-throated hummingbird can fly across the Gulf of Mexico on a nonstop flight traveling a distance of about 800 . Assuming that the bird has an average speed of 40.0 and an average power consumption of 1.70 , how many grams of fat does a ruby-throated hummingbird need to accomplish the nonstop flight across the Gulf of Mexico? Hint C.1 How to approach the problem In Part A you were given the amount of fat consumed over the entire flight and were asked to calculate the distance traveled by the migrating bird. Now you need to solve the reverse problem. That is, given the distance traveled, calculate the amount of energy required to perform the flight. Thus, apply the same method as the one used in part A, only in reverse. From the information on distance and average speed, calculate the duration of the nonstop flight. Then use your result and the given power consumption to determine the amount of energy required for the flight. Finally, calculate how many grams are needed to provide that amount of energy. Part C.2 Find the duration of the flight will the ruby-throated hummingbird fly to travel a distance of 800 at an average speed of How many hours 40.0 ? Express your answer in hours ANSWER: = Part C.3 Find the energy required for the nonstop flight Given that the hummingbird consumes energy at an average rate of 1.70 during the nonstop flight over the Gulf of Mexico? Hint C.3.a How to use power and time , how much energy will it require Remember that power is energy transferred (or transformed) per unit time. Make sure you are using the correct unit for time. http://session.masteringphysics.com/myct/assignmentPrint?assignmentID=1144577 9/17/2008 MasteringPhysics: Assignment Print View Page 17 of 20 Express your answer in joules. ANSWER: = Now calculate how many grams of fat are required to provide this amount of energy. Recall that 1 gram of fat provides 9.4 Calories of energy. Express your answer in grams. ANSWER: = Considering that in normal conditions the mass of a ruby-throated hummingbird is only 3 or 4 grams, the bird will need to almost double its body mass to store enough fat to perform the nonstop flight.
