In analyzing a typical event, the velocity of the ball and catcher immediately after the catch was used to deduce the velocity of .the ball immediately before the catch. . . k What phys1cal concepts and assumptions are u: used to derive this particular relationship only? A <::::)conservation of linear momentum during the catch. B) conservation of linear momentum during the swing and catch. C) conservation of mechanical energy and linear momentum during the catch.

Measurements-of physical quantities are often quickly repeated several <5 times, one after the other. Which of the following is HQ: a good reason for this practice? A) To look for some degree of reproducibility in the measurements, a characteristic that is expected in many physical systems. To determine the average of a number of measurements, for the purpose of reducin any error of constant value which is present in all the w- “my” C) To estimate the random uncertainty in each measurement. D) To determine the average of many measurements, because such averages typically have smaller random uncertainties than the corresponding individual measurements. E) To determine if the measurement fluctuations are consistent in size with the type of system being observed and instruments being used. Protractors 7 Susoension from two cells: After checking the "zero" of each cell, suspend the chain between the two cells. Hook the chain seat near the center of the chain so that it is off the ground. Each student should sit on the seat and have a colleague record the magnitude (cell reading) and direction (read the protractor) of the force exerted through each cell. To minimize parallax, read the ptotractors from a considerable distance. Read or estimate your data to a precision of 0.1 lbs and 0.1 degrees. Two cells, chain, seat and you Right Cell reading ..

Which of Plate handle the following best describes the charge on the metal plate of the electrophorus when W insulating it (the electrophorus) is operated I normally. 9 ate Electrophorus A) The charge is negative, because conduction from the insulator to the metal is the dominant effect. B) The charge is negative, because like charges repel. C)‘ The charge is negative, because the cat becomes positive. D) The charge is positive, because conduction from the insulator to the metal is the dominant effect. @The charge is positive, because unlike charges are attracted to the metal when it is momentarily connected to the ground. we flirt #16 ‘ § 'arjcd 5 [Mm/Wm. a ...
