Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) Advertisement for a certain small car claim that it floats in water. The car's mass is 900kg and its interior volume is 3.0 cubic meters. Water gradually leaks in and displaces the air in the car. What fraction of the interior volume is filled with water when the car sinks? A) 30% B) 50% C) 70% D) 90% E) 10% 1) 2) What's the closest wavelength to 480nm that can still be resolved as a seperate wavelength using a grating with 1000 gratings across 1cm. A) 480.04nm B) 480.1nm C) 480.03nm D) 480.00001nm E) 480.02nm 2) 3) "Vibrato" in a violin is produced by sliding the finger back and forth along a vibrating string. The G-string on a particular violin measures 30cm between bridge and its far end and is clamped rigidly at both points. It's fundamental frequency is 197Hz.

The can warns against temperatures in excess of 50 degree Celsius. What is the maximum safe pressure for the can? A) 500 kPa B) 600 kPa C) 1000 kPa D) 4000 kPa E) 7000 kPa 5) 6) A piece of glass (n=1.52) is immersed in diiodomethane (n=1.74). A light ray hits the glass at an incident angle of 40 degrees.
