no outside assistance. Instructors will periodically enter the classroom, and
you are permitted to ask questions of them. However, remember that your
instructor is limited in the amount of information he can give. There should be
no communication with any other persons (verbal, electronic, etc.) other than
the instructor. The use of calculators on the exam is permitted, but is limited
to numerical calculation. Any other uses (unit conversion, formulas, graphing,
symbolic manipulation, etc.) are not allowed. Please Sign the honor code below as conﬁrmation that you have complied with this policy: “On my honor, I have neither given nor received any unauthorized
aid on this exam.” PHYS 125
Final Exam 18 December 2006 Short Answer (40 points) Each of the ten questions below is worth 4 points. 1. Three balls of equal mass and size start from rest and roll down different
ramps. All ramps have the same height Which ball has the greater speed at the bottom of the ramp?

(b) 2 (d) Same time for all balls 2. Paul and Todd are at the top of a building. Paul drops a ball to the
ground whereas Todd throws a brick with the same weight in the hori—
zontal direction (i. e parallel to the surface of the earth). On which object J does gravity do the most work during their Journeys to the ground? (a) the ball
(b the brick
(c) it is the same for both _____ “My” ,. M”,
(d) it depends on the speeds at which the objects are thrown. 3 A child throws a ball up into the air and then it returns to the ground At its maximum height above the ground, what is the acceleration on the
ball? , , '

Final Exam 18 December 2006 4. Paul is at the park swinging on a swing at its resonant frequency just
before thanksgiving After a very festive holiday season he returns to the
same park 1n January, 20 lbs heavier than before, He swings on the same
swing. What happens to the resonant frequency of the swing when the
heavier version of Paul is on it? (You can regard the swing—paul system
as a simple pendulum.) (a) The resonant frequency increases.
(b) The resonant frequency decreases.
”'m'l‘he resonant frequency remains constant. )/

which point is the torque on the tire the greatest? 8. Consider the situation depicted here. A gun is accurately aimed at a dan
gerous criminal hanging from the gutter of a building. The target is well
within the gun’s range, but the instant the gun is ﬁred and the bullet
moves with a speed no, the criminal lets go and drops to the ground. The
dotted line indicates the direction in which the bullet was aimed. What ha pens? The bullet

swering Archimedes’ e—mail while he is away. The following very important
e—mail comes that you must answer. Dear Archimedes, I hope this letter ﬁnds you well and that you are enjoying your
time away from Syracuse. I’m trying to determine if the crown
given to me is made of pure gold. I remember you told me to
suspend it from a scale and measure its weight in air and then
take another reading with itfully submerged in water. I did that.
The scale read 10. 00 N in air and 9.35 N in water. However,
I don’t remember how to solve for the density. Please calculate
the density and show your work so that I can repeat it in the
future. Sincerely, , {I ”‘4

Final Exam 18 December 2006 3. (30 points) On your ﬁrst trip to Planet X you happen to take along a
100 g mass, a 20~crn long spring, a meter stick, and a stopwatch, You’re
curious about the acceleration due to gravity on Planet X, where ordinary
tasks seem easier than on earth, but you can’t ﬁnd this information in
your Visitor’s Guide. One night you suspend the spring from the ceiling
in your room and hang the mass from it. You ﬁnd that the mass stretches
the spring by 15 cm. You then pull the mass down 500 cm and release it.
With the stopwatch you ﬁnd that 10 oscillations take 8.0 s. What is the acceleration due to gravity? PHYS 125
