Unformatted text preview: Pickering, Tracey Homework 6 Due: Feb 3 2006, noon Inst: Drummond 1 This printout should have 9 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points A jet airliner moving initially at 636 mph to the east where there is no wind moves into a region where the wind is blowing at 853 mph in a direction 15 north of east. What is the new speed of the aircraft with respect to the ground? Correct answer: 1476 . 53 mph. Explanation: V jet V wind V The new velocity of the aircraft is the sum of the initial velocity and the velocity of the wind: ~v f = ~v i + ~v wind = v x + v y where v x = v i + v wind cos v y = v wind sin with being the angle between v wind and v jet . So the speed is  ~v  = q v 2 x + v 2 y . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points What is the direction of the aircraft (use coun terclockwise from due East as the positive an gular direction, between the limits of 180 and +180 )? Correct answer: 8 . 59917 . Explanation: The direction is = arctan v y v x . 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A dart gun is fired while being held hori zontally at a height of 0 . 865 m above ground level, and at rest relative to the ground. The dart from the gun travels a horizontal dis tance of 6 . 03 m. A child holds the same gun in a horizontal position while sliding down a 30 . 4 incline at a constant speed of 2 . 89 m / s. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 30 . 4 2 . 8 9 m / s x x 1 . 26m What horizontal distance x will the dart travel if the child fires the gun forward when it is 1 . 26 m above the ground? Correct answer: 6 . 39023 m. Explanation: Let : x = 6 . 03 m , y = 0 . 865 m , v = 2 . 89 m / s = 30 . 4 , and y 1 = 1 . 26 m First, find the initial velocity of the dart when shot horizontally, at rest, 0 . 865 m above the ground. From y = v y t + 1 2 g t 2 , with v y =0, and down defined as positive, we have t = r 2 y g = s 2(0 . 865 m) (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) = 0 . 420155 s , and x = v x t , thus v x = x t = (6 . 03 m) (0 . 420155 s) = 14 . 3518 m / s . Pickering, Tracey Homework 6 Due: Feb 3 2006, noon Inst: Drummond 2 Since we now know the initial horizontal velocity, we can find how far the dart will go...
