Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A particle is located at the vector position vectorr = (2 . 1 m) + (4 . 1 m) and the force acting on it is vector F = (5 . 2 N) + (2 . 4 N) . What is the magnitude of the torque about the origin? Correct answer: 16 . 28 N m. Explanation: Basic Concept: vector = vectorr vector F Solution: Since neither position of the par- ticle, nor the force acting on the particle have the z-components, the torque acting on the particle has only z-component: vector = [ x F y y F x ] k = [(2 . 1 m) (2 . 4 N) (4 . 1 m) (5 . 2 N)] k = [ 16 . 28 N m] k . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the magnitude of the torque about the point having coordinates [ a, b ] = [(2 m) , (8 m)]? Correct answer: 20 . 52 N m. Explanation: Reasoning similarly as we did in the pre- vious section, but with the difference that relative to the point [(2 m) , (8 m)] the y- component of the particle is now [ y (8 m)], we have vector = { [ x a ] F y [ y b ] F x } k = { [(2 . 1 m) (2 m)] [2 . 4 N] [(4 . 1 m) (8 m)] [5 . 2 N] } k = { 20 . 52 N m } k . 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points Given: Two vectors vector A = A x + A y and vector B = B x + B y , where A x = 2, A y = 1, B x = 5, and B y = 5. Find the z component of vector A vector B . Correct answer: 15. Explanation: It follows from the definition of cross prod- uct that ( vector A vector B ) x = A y B z A z B y = 0 ( vector A vector B ) y = A z B x A x B z = 0 ( vector A vector B ) z = A x B y A y B x = ( 3) (3) (4)(2) = 15 . 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Find the angle between vector A and vector B. Correct answer: 108 . 435 . Explanation: vector A vector B = A x B x + A y B y = ( 2) (5) + (1) (5) = 5 , A = radicalBig A 2 x + A 2 y = radicalBig ( 2) 2 + (1) 2 = 2 . 23607 , and B = radicalBig B 2 x + B 2 y = radicalBig (5) 2 + (5) 2 = 7 . 07107 . Therefore, using vector A vector B = | A | | B | cos , tokarski (at23678) Angular momentum Morozova (11104) 2 and solving for , gives = cos 1 bracketleftBigg vector A vector B A B bracketrightBigg = cos 1 bracketleftbigg ( 5) (2 . 23607) (7 . 07107) bracketrightbigg = 1 . 89255 rad = 108 . 435 . 005 10.0 points A ball having mass 3 . 4 kg is fastened at the end of a flagpole that is connected to the side of a tall building at point P . The length of the flagpole is 4 . 6 m, and it makes an angle 1 . 0472 rad (60 ) with the horizontal....
