Cheu 0 Clearly Show all of your work. 0 Work: that is scratched out or erased will not be counted. 0 All answers must include units where appropriate. 0 Clearly indicate your answer by putting a has around it. 1. A thin, uniform ring of mass M has a radius R. A small mass m0 is located a distance 2
above the center of the ring as shown. (a) Find the gravitational potential due to the ring at a point 2 above the center of the ring. (b) Determine the force on the small mass as a function of z. (c) If the mass is released from rest at 2:, what is its velocity when it reaches the center of the ring? ‘3

(a) Calculate the moment of inertia of the cylinder. about its axis of symmetry. (b) Determine the velocity of the system after the bullet comes to rest if the cylinder rolls
t the bullet passes through without slipping on the horizontal surface. You can assume the
