smedley (tws933) – Homework 5, energy 19-20 – dowd – (WilsonRPHY11920 1) 1 This print-out should have 27 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0points This question is typical on some driver’s li- cense exams: A car moving at 48 km / h skids 15 m with locked brakes. How far will the car skid with locked brakes at 144 km / h? Assume that energy loss is due only to sliding friction. Answer in units of m. 002 10.0points Two identical objects are moving directly to- ward one another at the same speed v . vectorv - vectorv m m What is the total kinetic energy of the sys- tem of the two objects? 1. 4 m v 2 since (2 v ) 2 = 4 v 2 2. Zero since ( vectorv - vectorv ) 2 = 0 3. None of these 4. m v 2 since energy is a scalar 5. Still 1 2 m v 2 from the definition of kinetic energy 003 10.0points Shawn and his bike have a total mass of 51 . 7 kg. Shawn rides his bike 1 . 2 km in 12 . 4 min at a constant velocity. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . What is Shawn’s kinetic energy? Answer in units of J. 004(part1of3)10.0points The current theory of the structure of the Earth, called plate tectonics, tells us that the continents are in constant motion. Assume that the North American continent can be represented by a slab of rock 5300 km on a side and 37 km deep and that the rock has an average mass density of 2720 kg / m 3 . The continent is moving at the rate of about 4 . 8 cm / year. What is the mass of the continent? Answer in units of kg. 005(part2of3)10.0points What is the kinetic energy of the continent? Answer in units of J. 006(part3of3)10.0points A jogger (of mass 77 kg) has the same kinetic energy as that of the continent. What would his speed be? Answer in units of m / s. 007(part1of2)10.0points A force vector F = F x ˆ ı + F y ˆ acts on a particle that undergoes a displacement of vectors = s x ˆ ı + s y ˆ where F x = 8 N, F y = - 2 N, s x = 5 m, and s y = 2 m.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
