Midterm 2 Review Sunday 4/1 in 1 Pimentel Ruza Markov Problem 1. A block of mass m is launched across a table using a spring of constant k . In the moment the block is released from rest the spring is compressed a distance x . After the block is launched it runs into a ramp of mass M . Assume that all surfaces are fric- tionless and that the block never reaches the top of the ramp. a) What is the maximal vertical height h a that the block reaches as it moves up the ramp if the ramp is attached to the table? b) What is the maximal height h b that the block reaches if the ramp is free to slide across the table? Problem 2. A thin metal plate of uniform mass density is cut into the shape shown: a) If the curved boundaries are given by y = ± Cx 1 / 3 find the constant C in terms of the maximal x value L and the maximal y value H . b) Find the position of the center of mass. Write your answer in the form ~ r cm = x cm ˆ x + y cm ˆ y . What is the distance r cm of the center of mass to the origin?

### What students are saying

• 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.
