None of these 3. 2.000 s correct 4. 0.250 s 5. 1.000 s 6. 0.500 s Explanation: Basic Concept: A pendulum passes through its equilibrium position twice each cycle. Solution: T = 2(1 . 000 s) = 2 . 000 s Question 2, chap 15, sect 6. part 2 of 3 10 points In Cambridge, England, a seconds pendu lum is 0.9942 m long. b) What is the freefall acceleration in Cam bridge? 1.

At t = 0, the particle has an x coordinate of 5 . 3 m and y > . x y (5 . 3 m , y ) Figure: Not drawn to scale. radius 6 . 6 m 18 rad / s Determine the x coordinate of the particle at t = 1 . 71 s . Correct answer: 6 . 59998 m (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: LET : x = 5 . 3 m , = 18 rad / s , t = 0 s , and R = 6 . 6 m , Since the amplitude of the particles mo tion equals the radius of the circle and = 18 rad / s , we have x = A cos( t + ) = (6 . 6 m) cos bracketleftBig (18 rad / s) t + bracketrightBig . We can find using the initial condition that x = 5 . 3 m at t = 0 (5 . 3 m) = (6 . 6 m) cos(0 + ) , which implies = arccos x R = arccos (5 . 3 m) (6 . 6 m) = 36 . 5796 = 0 . 638433 rad . Therefore, at time t = 1 . 71 s , the x coordinate of the particle is x = R cos bracketleftBig t + bracketrightBig = (6 . 6 m) cos bracketleftBig (18 rad / s) (1 . 71 s) + (0 . 638433 rad) bracketrightBig = 6 . 59998 m . Note: The angles in the cosine are in radians. Question 5, chap 15, sect 7....
