Calculate the ratio of new planet’s mass density to the mass density of the Earth. Correct answer: 0 . 222787 (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Let : R np = 11 . 2 R E and M np = 313 M E . The volume of a sphere of radius R is V = 4 3 π R 3 . The (average) density ρ of a body is the ratio of the body’s mass to its volume, ρ = M V . Planets are spherical, so the (average) density of a planet of a given mass M and a given radius R is ρ = M 4 3 π R 3 . Comparing the newly discovered planet to the Earth, we have ρ np ρ E = M np 4 3 π R 3 np M E 4 3 π R 3 E = M np M E parenleftbigg R np R E parenrightbigg 3 = 313 (11 . 2) 3 = . 222787 . Question 2, chap 1, sect 1. part 1 of 1 10 points A spherical balloon with radius r inches has volume 4 3 πr 3 . Find a function that represents the amount of air required to inflate the balloon from a radius of r inches to a radius of r + 5 inches. 1. 4 3 π ( r + 5) 3 2. 4 3 π ( 75 r + 5 r 2 + 125 ) 3. 4 3 πr 3 4. 4 3 π ( 25 r + 15 r 2 + 125 ) 5. 4 3 π ( 75 r + 15 r 2 + 125 ) correct Explanation: Question 3, chap 1, sect 2. part 1 of 1 10 points What is the mass of water required to fill a circular hot tub 4 m in diameter and 1 . 9 m deep? Correct answer: 23864 kg (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Let : d = 4 m , l = 1 . 9 m , and ρ = 1000 kg / m 3 . The volume of the tub is V =( πR 2 ) l = π d 2 4 l = π (4 m) 2 4 1 . 9 m = 23 . 864 m 3 . The mass is m = ρ V = (1000 kg / m 3 ) (23 . 864 m 3 ) = 23864 kg . Question 4, chap 1, sect 3. part 1 of 1 10 points Identify the equation below which is dimen sionally incorrect . A, x, y and r have units of length. k here has units of inverse length. v and v have units of velocity. a and g have units of acceleration. ω has units of inverse time. t is time, m is mass, V is volume, ρ is density, and F is force. 1.

The value of a trigonometry function ( e.g. cos( k x ω t )) is also dimensionless. So the right hand side has the dimension of length. [ y ] = L [ A cos( k x )] = L . This equation is dimensionally correct....
