P211 Spring 2004 Form A 1. A 2 kg block A traveling with a speed of 5 m/s as shown collides with a stationary 4 kg block B. After the collision, A is observed to travel at right angles with respect to the initial direction with a speed of 2.5 m/s. What is the magnitude of the impulse given to B by A ( in kg m/s)? A. 4.0 B. 11.2 C. 16.3 D. 25 E. 0 2. A 2.0 g coin is placed on a flat, horizontal turntable. The turntable is observed to make three revolutions in 3.0 s. The coin is observed to slide off the turntable when it is more than 8.0 cm from the center of the turntable. What is the coefficient of static friction between the coin and the turntable? Page 1

P211 Spring 2004 Form A 3. A flying saucer deep in interstellar space, free of external forces, rotates about its symmetry axis with angular velocity ω . The aliens inside the saucer rearrange the furniture to make room for a Christmas tree they have just procured from Elvis. As a result, the angular velocity of the saucer decreases to ω /2. If originally the rotational kinetic energy of the saucer was K, after the rearrangement its new rotational kinetic energy is: A. K/4 B. K/2 C. K D. 2K E. 4K 4. A disk of radius r and mass M has a moment of inertia given by I = 1/2 Mr 2 for rotations about an axis through the center of the disk as shown. If a second disk of twice the mass and half the radius is added as shown in the figure, the new moment of inertia of the combined disks is: R/2 R Page 2

    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.
