,. Phys. 116 Final Exam May 15,2001 L (5 points) In the situation shown below, a person pulls a suing attached to block A, which is in turn attached to another, heavier block B via a second suing The blocks are accelerated together with a non-zero acceleration. How does the force ofsuing I on block A compare with the force ofsuing 2 on block B? Explain your answer. string 2 string 1 F CiJ (5 points) Imagine that a rigid cylinder 0.01 m in diameter and I m long is spinning with an angular momentum La. About which rotation axis A or B (both ofwhich run through the center ofmass) would the kinetic energy be greater? Explain. B ~ ;kWp. . /'") o (5 points) Compare a ball initially at rest which rolls down an inclined plane without slitming, to a block without friction sliding down the same inclined plane. The ball and the block have the same mass m, lithe ball and the block travel the same vertical distance, which arrives at the bottom with a greater velocity? (Or do they have the same velocity?) Why?
