Unformatted text preview: Tl 0M Total grade: PH 1110 Summary Homework 2, C Term 2008 Name Section Number This assignment is worth 2.5% of your final grade and is our recommended means for you to assess your readiness for Exam 2. It is due in conference on Tuesday, January 29 and will be returned to you in conference on Thursday, January 31, the day before Exam 2. Please show your work and report your answers to no more than three significant figures. la. [10 pts] You want to reenact Galileo’s famous experiments with gravity. Instead of tossing masses of different sizes and weights, you use rotten tomatoes. You find a way onto the roof of Olin Hall, above a section of lawn. You realize that the tomatoes will make more dramatic Splats if you were to throw them onto the concrete walk a few meters away from the base of the building. For an initial height h = 19.6 In, and a minimum horizontal travel distance ofxmil1 = 5.00 m, what minimum horizontal speed vxm'“ should you give a tomato for it to land on the concrete? You launch the tomato in the horizontal direction.

[10 pts] A car of mass m traveling at a constant speed v slides on an icy patch of road (no fi-iction) where the road curves in a half~circle with a radius r. The road is banked at an unknown angle 6. The car slides neither up nor down the bank throughout the tum.

[10 pts} In Lab 3 you measured how your effective weight changed as you moved your forearms while you stood on the force plate. Below are rectangles representing your forearms, the entire rest of your body, and the force plate. Please draw vectors representing the forces acting on them. Assume that your arms were positioned symmetrically, such that all horizontal forces cancel. In other words, you need to draw vectors only up or down. Clearly label each force uSi'ng the form F A on B, where “A on B” means Object A acting on Object B. r '5'“ Fplmile W IMAM) Paws“ m imifl Force plate Foreanns Body 3b.

Name Section Number 4a. [10 pts] In Lab 4, the masses and hanger are connected to the cart by a string, just as in the picture in the overview of the lab instructions, or as in the sketch on the left below. PleaSC draw vectors representing the forces acting on of the masses and hanger (mh), as well as the cart on the steeply _sloped track (Inc), making sure to label the forces clearly.
