Morby, Grant – Homework 14 – Due: Feb 24 2006, noon – Inst: Drummond 1 This print-out should have 13 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices be±ore answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 o± 2) 10 points A 78 . 3 g bullet is fred ±rom a ri²e having a barrel 0 . 783 m long. Assuming the origin is placed where the bullet begins to move, the ±orce exerted on the bullet by the expanding gas is F = a + bx - cx 2 , where a = 15400 N, b = 5720 N / m, c = 36300 N / m 2 , with x in meters. Determine the work done by the gas on the bullet as the bullet travels the length o± the barrel. Correct answer: 8003 . 05 J. Explanation: The work is ±ound by integrating the ±orce over the distance. W = Z x f x i F · ds For the ±orce in this problem we have, W = Z 0 ( a + bx - cx 2 ) dx = ax + 1 2 bx 2 - 1 3 cx 3 f f f 0 = (15400 N)(0 . 783 m) + 1 2 (5720 N / m)(0 . 783 m) 2 - 1 3 (36300 N / m 2 )(0 . 783 m) 3 = 8003 . 05 J . 002 (part 2 o± 2) 10 points I± the barrel is 0 . 953 m long, how much work is done? Correct answer: 6800 . 85 J. Explanation: For the barrel o± length n = 0 . 953 m m, we need only change the limits o± integration, W = Z n 0 ( a + bx - cx 2 ) dx = ax + 1 2 bx 2 - 1 3 cx 3 f f f n 0 = (15400 N)(0 . 953 m) + 1 2 (5720 N / m)(0 . 953 m) 2 - 1 3 (36300 N / m 2 )(0 . 953 m) 3 = 6800 . 85 J . 003 (part 1 o± 1) 10 points A block starts at rest and slides down a ±ric- tionless track except ±or a small rough area on a horizontal section o± the track (as shown in the fgure below). Itleavesthetrackhorizontally, ²iesthrough the air, and subsequently strikes the ground. The acceleration o± gravity is 9 . 81 m / s 2 . μ =0 . 3 1 . 4 m 451 g h 2 . 1m 3 . 53 m 9 81m / s v At what height h above the ground is the block released? Correct answer: 4 . 00344 m. Explanation: Let : x = 3 . 53 m , g = 9 . 81 m / s 2 , m = 451 g , μ = 0 . 3 , = 1 . 4 m , h 2 = - 2 . 1 m , h = h 1 - h 2 , and v x = v .
