Physics 213 Fall 2003 Midterm Form D 1. In the hydraulic press shown, the small piston "a" has diameter 3.8 cm and the larger piston "A" has diameter 53.0 cm. What force magnitude f on the small piston will balance a 2.0 x 10 4 N force F on the larger piston? A. 0.1 N B. 2.0 x 10 4 N C. 103 N D. 2.8 x 10 5 N E. 3.9 x 10 6 N 2. A 1024 Hz tuning fork is used to obtain a series of resonance levels in a gas column of variable length, with one end closed and the other open. The length of the column changes by 20 cm from resonance to resonance. From this data, the speed of sound in this gas is: A. 20 m/s B. 410 m/s C. 102 m/s D. 205 m/s E. 51 m/s 3. What fraction of the volume of an ice cube floats above the surface in a glass of water? Take the density of ice to be 917 kg/m 3 and water to be 998 kg/m 3 . A. 3% B. 90% C. 0.1% D. 10% E. 8% Page 1

    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.
