1 Name Rec. Section # / TA Name Physics 112 - Fall 2003 Final Exam Tuesday, December 16, 2003 Instructions and Info : 1. Pencils, pens and calculators are allowed, along with the provided equation sheet; books, notes, etc. are not allowed. 2. Use calculators only for calculating, not text/ equation storage, etc. 3. For the problems, show your work in the space provided so that the grader can understand the reasoning leading to your answers. If you don’t show your work, you will not get credit. For the short answer questions only the answers will be graded. 4. Try all of the problems – don’t get too hung up on any one. 5. Don’t give up if you have trouble with the first part of a problem. Often you can work the later parts even if you didn’t get the earlier parts. 6. Think about your answers – if they do not make physical sense, say so. You’ll get some credit for recognizing this. (You’ll get more for fixing whatever the problem is.) 7. Don’t forget to fill out your name, etc. above. 8. DO NOT GO TO THE NEXT PAGE UNTIL INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.

2 Problem 1 Short Problems (15 points) (a) A small child of mass m runs horizontally at speed v o onto a swing of the same mass m , initially at rest. What is the maximum height the child + swing reach as they swing to the right and up? Your answer may contain m, v o , and numerical or physical constants. H = _____ (b) A wooden block of mass M lies on a ramp slanted at an angle θ from the horizontal. With what minimum force F normal to the ramp should the block be pressed against the ramp so that it will slide down the ramp at a constant speed? The coefficients of static and kinetic friction between the block and the ramp are μ s and k , respectively. Assume the ramp is fixed in place. Your answer may contain M , s , k , , and numerical or physical constants. F = _________________________ m v o H m θ F

3 (c) A 25 kg mass just barely fits inside a water-filled cylinder and makes a watertight, but frictionless, seal. The cross-sectional area of the cylinder is A = 0.1 m 2 . A small hole exists in the cylinder 1 meter below the mass. Find the velocity of the water leaving the hole. v = _______________________ 25 kg 1 m v A = 0.1 m 2
