oldhomewk 32 – PAPAGEORGE, MATT – Due: Apr 28 2008, 4:00 am 1 Question 1, chap 15, sect 3. part 1 of 3 10 points A mass of 357 g connected to a light spring of force constant 12 . 7 N / m oscillates on a horizontal, frictionless track. The amplitude of the motion is 4 cm. Calculate the total energy of the system. Correct answer: 0 . 01016 J (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: The total energy of the system is equal to its potential energy when the displacement is equal to A : E = 1 2 k A 2 = 1 2 (12 . 7 N / m) (0 . 04 m) 2 = 0 . 01016 J . Question 2, chap 15, sect 3. part 2 of 3 10 points What is the maximum speed of the mass? Correct answer: 0 . 238577 m / s (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: When the mass is at x = 0, the potential energy is zero and the total energy is E = 1 2 mv 2 max ; therefore, the maximum speed is v max = radicalbigg 2 E m = radicalBigg (2) (0 . 01016 J) (0 . 357 kg) = 0 . 238577 m / s . Question 3, chap 15, sect 3. part 3 of 3 10 points What is the magnitude of the velocity of the mass when the displacement is equal to 1 . 81 cm? Correct answer: 0 . 212754 m / s (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: From conservation of energy, 1 2 m v 2 + 1 2 k x 2 = E = 1 2 k A 2 so the velocity of the mass when the displace- ment is equal to 1 . 81 cm is v = radicalbigg k m ( A 2 - x 2 ) = 0 . 212754 m / s . Question 4, chap 15, sect 3. part 1 of 2 10 points A 1 . 24 kg block at rest on a tabletop is at- tached to a horizontal spring having constant 16 . 7 N / m. The spring is initially unstretched. A constant 21 . 8 N horizontal force is applied to the object causing the spring to stretch. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 21 . 8 N 1 . 24 kg 16 . 7 N / m Find the speed of the block after it has moved 0 . 25 m from equilibrium if the surface between block and tabletop is frictionless. Correct answer: 2 . 81932 m / s (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Given : m = 1 . 24 kg , x f = 0 . 25 m , k = 16 . 7 N / m , and F = 21 . 8 N . Applying the work kinetic energy theorem, F x f = 1 2 m v 2 f + 1 2 k x 2 f m v 2 f = 2 F x f - k x 2 f v 2 f = 2 F x f - k x 2 f m = 2 (21 . 8 N) (0 . 25 m) 1 . 24 kg

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
