Physics I – Exam 2 – Spring 2006 Answer Key Part A – 1: B, 2: C, 3: A, 4: B, 5: B, 6: A, 7: A, 8: C 4 pts each. B-1 20 Points The key to this problem is the conservation of mechanical energy and the Work – Kinetic Energy Theorem. Looking For KE curve is mirror image of PE curve KE goes from 1 J to max 2 J and back to 1 J. force curve is a straight line. force = 0 at x = 5 cm. force = +40 N at x = 0 cm. 10 5 PE (J) x (cm) 10 5 0 10 x (cm) x (cm) KE (J) Net Force (N) 0 5 0 0 1 40 3 2 1 4 -40 2

B-2 24 Points This problem uses a little bit of 2D projectile motion. Vx = 3. Vy = –9.8 t. x = (3) t. y = 4.9 – 4.9 t 2 . Only Z components are non-zero. τ z = (r x F) z = x (0.5) (–9.8) = –14.7 t l z = (r x p) z = x (0.5) Vy – y (0.5) Vx = –7.35 – 7.35 t 2 Looking For X and Y components of torque = 0. magnitude of torque = 0 at t = 0 sec. magnitude of torque = 14.7 N m at t = 1 sec.
