A particle goes from x = − 2 m, y = 3 m, z = 1 m to x = 3 m, y = − 1 m, z = 4 m. Its displacement is: A. (1 m) ˆ i + (2 m) ˆ j + (5 m) ˆ k B.

A jet plane in straight horizontal f ight passes over your head. When it is directly above you, the sound seems to come from a point behind the plane in a direction 30 ◦ from the vertical. The speed of the plane is: A. the same as the speed of sound B. half the speed of sound C. three F fths the speed of sound D. 0 . 866 times the speed of sound E. twice the speed of sound ans: B 8. A plane traveling north at 200 m / s turns and then travels south at 200 m / s.

Two bodies are falling with negligible air resistance, side by side, above a horizontal plane. If one of the bodies is given an additional horizontal acceleration during its descent, it: A. strikes the plane at the same time as the other body B. strikes the plane earlier than the other body C. has the vertical component of its velocity altered D. has the vertical component of its acceleration altered E. follows a straight line path along the resultant acceleration vector ans: A 10. The velocity of a projectile equals its initial velocity added to: A. a constant horizontal velocity B. a constant vertical velocity C. a constantly increasing horizontal velocity D. a constantly increasing downward velocity E. a constant velocity directed at the target ans: D Chapter 4: MOTION IN TWO AND THREE DIMENSIONS 37 11.
