Unformatted text preview: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY Physics 7A w Section 3 (Stahler) Spring 2001 FIRST MIDTERM EXAMINATION } Please do all your work on the front and back pages of this exam. Write your name on all pages. You should find these problems to be at the same level as the homework — so relax! YOu must attempt all three problems. If you become stuck on one, go on to another and return to the first one later. You should show all your reasoning, since partial credit will be allotted. Remember to circle your final answer. 3< Problem 1 (35 points) The motion of a point mass is given by fl/Y Here= w is a constant and t is the time.

It is prevented from sliding down the plane by application'of a horizontal force F and by friction between the block and plane. Let us be the coefficient of static friction. (a) Draw a free-body diagram for the block, carefully labeling all of the forces. (b) After choosing a convenient set of coordinate axes, apply Newton’s Second Law in the two orthogonal directions. (c) What is the minimum horizontal force needed to prevent sliding? Problem 3 (30 points) T .(_.

A friend on the groand tosses 'up a ball, which passes in front of the window along a curved path, as shown. Using a stopwatch, you find that it takes a time T for the ball to do this.
