Unformatted text preview: October 4, 2001 PAGE 1_ EXAM VERSION AEDBC Physics 103 Fall 2001 Exam 1 BEFORE BEGINNING THE EXAM Write and fill in your name, your 10—digit student ID number, and your section number (301 to 329) in the special codes boxes A, B, and. C on the answer sheet. Each exam has a five-letter code, such as ABCDE. Carefully enter this five— letter code as the first five "answers" on the anSWer sheet. For example, for exam ABCDE, number one on the answer sheet should be marked "A", number two "B", number three "C", and so on. Thus THE EXAM BEGINS WITH QUESTION NUMBER 6! Answer ALL 20 questions. Guessing is NOT penalized! Don't spend too much time on any particular problem, but move on and come back to it later. YOU MUST HAND IN THE EXAM TO YOUR DISCUSSION SECTION TA YOU MAY ONLY USE PENCILS, A CALCULATOR, AND YOUR FORMULA SHEET FOR THE EXAM MULTIPLE CHOICE Note the expression: y = X2. which statement is most consistent with this expression? a if y doubles, then X quadruples b y is greater than X c. if X doubles, then y doubles d if X doubles, then y quadruples e. X is greater than y In mechanics, physicists use three basic quantities to derive additional quantities. Mass is one of the three quantities. What are the other two? power and force velocity and time length and time force and time length and force (DO-DUN A furlong is a distance of 220 yards. A fortnight is a time period of 2 weeks.
