Solution for On-Line Homework 9 Reference Frames II Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 9.1(Galilean Transformations) Problem: The relationship between measurements in an inertial frame and measurements in a non-inertial reference frame is given by the Galilean transformations. Select One of the Following: (a) True (b-Answer) False Solution False. Galilean transformations connect di±erent inertial reference frames. Total Points for Problem: 3 Points Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 9.2() Problem: Which of the following best de²nes and/or explains a zero-momentum reference frame and why it is valuable. (a)A zero-momentum reference frame: Select One of the Following: (a) is handy in examining collisions. It is often the reference frame that makes the calcu- lations simplest. 1

It is a mathematics trick you will often see in physics, where by picking the right reference frame or coordinate system, you can not only greatly simplify a caolculation, but you can see some of the important features of the system, such as available energy in this care, more clearly. Grading Key: Part (a) 1 Points Total Points for Problem: 1 Points Solution to On-Line Homework Problem 9.3(Convertible Knietic Energy) Problem: The convertible kinetic energy is the same in all inertial reference frames. Select One of the ollowing: 2 (a-Answer) True (b) False Solution True. Since the convertible kinetic energy is the kinetic energy in the zero momentum frame, it is frame indepen-dent.
