Unformatted text preview: hysics 132-24 §@i art 1: Short Answer (Answer and explain in one or two sentences or equations.) Each question is worth 5 Exam 1, Winter 2005 NAME: points. 1. Write the equations which relate position x, velocity v, and acceleration a to time t for a simple harmonic oscillator of amplitude A, frequency a), and phase constant 0. 2. Write the general expression representing a one-dimensional wave traveling in the +x direction. Identify all symbols used in your expression, and designate which part of your expression represents the phase of the wave. 3. What two factors in general determine the speed of a mechanical wave? State the specific result for a wave in a stretched string. 4. An observer hears an increase in frequency of sound emitted by a source if the distance between source and observer is decreasing, yet the cause of the effect is fiindamentally different depending on whether it is the source or the observer that is moving. Explain the difference. Part II: Multiple Choice. Circle the one best answer to each of the following questions. Each question is worth 5 points. 1. 2. 3. A mass m oscillates with equency to at the end of a spring of stiffness k. If the spring is then cut in half and same mass attached one of the halves, the mass will oscillate with frequency (a) 0); (b) 20); (c) (9/2; 2 a); (e) (DH 2 If the amplitude of a simple h onic oscillator is increased by a factor of 2, then (a) the maximum velocity and maximum acceleration ch increase by a factor of 4; (b) the total energy increases by a factor of 2; creases by a factor of 2, but the maximum acceleration increases by a factor of 4; c the maximum veloc (@i e total energy increases by a factor of 4; (e) none of the above. third harmonic.

Part III: Problem Solving. Work each of the following problems. Show your work. Credit for your answers b0 depends on the quality of your explanations. Each problem is worth 20 points. 1. 2. 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
