Unformatted text preview: PHY 131.05 Midterm Exam NAME: Tuesday, February 5, 2008 Directions: You have 75 minutes. Support your answers. Correct answers
with no or unsatisfactory explanation, or supporting calculations (whatever is
applicable) will not receive any credit. You are allowed to use one page (only
one side) formula sheet, and a calculator. Solve the questions on the same page.
If necessary, you can use the back of the page as well. 1 A stone thrown upward [20 pts] A stone is thrown upward with 10.0 m/s at t=0. Assume there is no air resis
tance. (a) What is the acceleration (magnitude and direction) at t=1.50 s? (b) Where is the object at t=1.50 s? (c) Which direction does the object move at t=1.50 s? ( d) Is the object slowing down or speeding up at t=1.50 s? Figure 1: Figure for Question 1. 2 Velocity and Acceleration [20 pts] Motion diagram for an object moving in a curve is givean/L‘Q’
(a) Find the direction of the acceleration at point 4.
(b)Find the direction of the acceleration at point 10. Position, meters tA t3 Q Q, Time, seconds Figure 2: Figure for Question 2. 3 Position '03 time graph [20 pts] Position vs time graph for two cars moving along the same straight track are
given (one solid, the other dashed). (a) At what time(s) or in which time interval(s) have these cars met at a
point along their tracks? (Your answer should be in the form ” at 75A” or ”some
time between 75,; and t3”) Explain. ) At what time(s) or in which time interval(s) have these cars had the same
speed? (Your answer should be in the form ”at 73;” or ”some time between 15A
and t3”) Explain. (a) #4; fat: xi/Leif We: 1% / “HY jaw. WW”? 4 Galieo: The Movie [20 pts] Because of your physics background, you have been hired as a consultant for
a new movie about Galileo. In one scene, he climbs up to the top of a tower
and, in ﬁustration over the people who ridicule his theories, throws a rock at a
group of them standing on the ground. The rock leaves his hand at 30° from
the horizontal. The script calls for the rock to land 15 In from the base of the
tower near a group of his detractors. It is important for the script that the rock
take precisely 3.0 seconds to hit the ground so that there is time for a good
expressive closeup. The set coordinator is concerned that the rock will hit the
ground with too much speed causing cement chips from the plaza to injure one
of the high priced actors. You are told to calculate that speed. (First draw a
picture to visualize the situation.) 29 a:

M to Figure 3: Figure for Question 1. 5 Vector Algebra, [20 pts] Two force vectors are shown in the graph. Magnitude of A is 8.00 N, and that
of B is 10.0 N. (a) Find D = E — 2K, and express in component form.
(b) Find the magnitude of D. (c) Find the direction of D and Show it in the coordinate system. 9 : ~ Mogso“ 9:3 ; , Hamid?
