C HAPTER 13 Quick Quizzes 1. (d). 2. (c). 3. (b). 4. (d). 5. (b) and (c). An accelerating elevator is equivalent to a gravitational field. Thus, if the elevator is accelerating upward, this is equivalent to an increased effective gravitational field magnitude g , and the period will decrease. Similarly, if the elevator is accelerating downward, the effective value of g is reduced and the period increases. If the elevator moves with constant velocity, the period of the pendulum is the same as that in the stationary elevator. 6. (a). The clock will run slow . With a longer length, the period of the pendulum will increase. Thus, it will take longer to execute each swing, so that each second according to the clock will take longer than an actual second. 7. (b). Greater. The value of g on the Moon is about one-sixth the value of g on Earth, so the period of the pendulum on the moon will be greater than the period on Earth. 405

CHAPTER 13 Problem Solutions 13.1 (a) The force exerted on the block by the spring is ( )( ) 160 N m 0.15 m 24 N s Fk x =− =+ , or s F = 24 N directed toward equilibrium position (b) From Newton's second law, the acceleration is 2 24 N m 60 0.40 kg s s F a m + == = + = 2 m 60 toward equilibrium position s 13.2 (a) The spring constant is 3 -2 50 N 1.0 10 N m 5.0 10 m s F mg k xx === × .

It will then repeat this motion over and over again with a regular period. (b) From 2 1 2 yi y yv t a t ∆= + , with 0 yi v = , the time required for the ball to reach the ground is 2 2 2 4.00 m 0.904 s 9.80 m s y y t a ∆− = . This is one-half of the time for a complete cycle of the motion. Thus, the period is T = 1.81 s . (c) No . The net force acting on the mass is a constant given by F mg (except when it is contact with the ground). This is not in the form of Hooke’s law. 406
CHAPTER 13 13.4 The force the hand exerts on the handle is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the sum of the forces exerted on the handle by the springs, or ( ) 1234 4 h =− + + + FF F F F 1 F .

This point is in equilibrium, so 11 2 sin 32.5 0 y k x Σ = .

If the force constant of each of these springs is k and the elongation of each is 1 2 x x = , then gives 0 y F Σ= ( ) 2 sin 32.5 kx k x °= , or 1 2sin 32.5 2sin 32.5 2 k x x °° 4 5.60 4sin32.5 × ° 4 2.61 × 407
