Nguyen, Don – Final 1 – Due: Dec 8 2004, 5:00 pm – Inst: Charles Chiu 1 This print-out should have 21 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices be±ore answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 o± 1) 10 points The velocity, v , o± a sound wave traveling in the air depends on B , the bulk modulus, and ρ , the density o± the air. The bulk mod- ulus is defned by the variation o± pressure Δ P = - B Δ V/V , where Δ V/V is the ±rac- tional change o± the volume. Assume v = B x ρ y . The powers o± x and y may be determined based on a dimensional analysis. Through equating the powers o± M, o± L and o± T, one arrives at correspondingly a set o± three equations. Choose the correct set. 1. 0 = x + y , 1 = x + 3 y and 1 = - 2 x 2. 0 = x + y , 1 = - x + 3 y and - 1 = - 2 x 3. 0 = x - y , 1 = x - 3 y and 1 = - 2 x 4. 1 = x + y , 0 = x - 3 y and 1 = - 2 x 5. 0 = x + y , 1 = - x - 3 y and - 1 = - 2 x correct 6. 0 = x - y , - 1 = x - 3 y and - 1 = - 2 x 7. 0 = x - y , 1 = x + 3 y and 1 = - 2 x 8. 0 = x - y , 2 = x + 3 y and - 1 = - 2 x 9. 0 = x + y , 1 = x - 3 y and 1 = - 2 x 10. 0 = x + y , 0 = x - 3 y and 1 = - 2 x Explanation: Denote the dimension o± a quantity by a square bracket. [ v ]=L/T, [ B ]=[ F/A ], [ ρ ]=M/L 3 . The last two equations lead to [ B x ρ y ] =(ML/(TL) 2 ) x (M/L 3 ) y . Now we write [ v ]=[ B x ρ y ]. Equating the power o± M gives 0 = x + y . Equating power o± L gives 1 = - x - 3 y , and powers o± T gives - 1 = - 2 x . 002 (part 1 o± 1) 10 points The graph shows position as a ±unction o± time ±or two trains running on parallel tracks. At time t =0 (origin) the position o± both trains is 0. Which is true: position time t B B A 1. Both trains speed up all the time 2. In the time interval ±rom t =0 to t = t B , train B covers more distance than train A 3. At time t B , both trains have the same velocity 4. Somewhere be±ore time t B , both trains have the same acceleration 5. Both trains have the same velocity at some time be±ore t B correct Explanation: The slope o± the curve B is parallel to line A at some point t < t B . 003 (part 1 o± 1) 10 points Consider a man standing on a scale which is placed in an elevator. When the elevator is stationary, the scale reading is S s .
