Physics 125 Test IV
December 7, 1997
Solutions
This is a closed book exam. You have
70 minutes
to do the exam.
You may use a calculator.
Where appropriate, draw neat diagrams, labeling your axes and clearly
indicating what variables you are using. Use Cartesian coordinates.
Give solutions to 2 or 3 significant figures.
Grading is based on what appears on your paper. In general, the
answer to a problem by itself is not sufficient to obtain credit. The
grader should be able to determine, without guessing, the steps you
took to arrive at a solution.
REGRADES can go either way. That is, errors made in grading do not
always reduce your grade; they might have incorrectly increased your grade.
(Most requests for regrades yield no change. Usually the student just did not
understand how the grade was arrived at.)
If more than one answer is given
only one can be graded
. Please
indicate clearly which one you want to be graded.
Please remember to put your name on the test booklet and SIGN THE
PLEDGE.

An oscillator consists of a block of mass M = 0.500 kg connected to a
spring. The mass is pulled out such that the spring is stretched by 35.0 cm,
then released. It oscillates with a period T = 0.314 s, (
