practice 02 – ALIBHAI, ZAHID 1 Latest unpenalized work: Jan 29 2007 Mon- day 04:00 (after this date you can not make a perfect score). Work cutoff: Jan 28 2007, 4:00 am. Question 1 part 1 of 2 10 points A person travels by car from one city to another. She drives for 31 . 2 min at 69 . 8 km / h, 8 . 5 min at 112 km / h, 47 . 4 min at 42 . 3 km / h, and spends 16 . 5 min along the way eating lunch and buying gas. Determine the distance between the cities along this route. Answer in units of km. Question 2 part 2 of 2 10 points Determine the average speed for the trip. Answer in units of km / h. Question 3 part 1 of 2 10 points A runner is jogging at a steady v r = 5 . 1 km / hr. When the runner is L = 6 . 8 km from the finish line a bird begins flying from the runner to the finish line at v b = 30 . 6 km / hr (6 times as fast as the runner). When the bird reaches the finish line, it turns around and flies back to the runner. Even though the bird is a dodo, we will assume that it occupies only one point in space, i.e. , a zero length bird. L v b v r finish line How far does the bird travel? Answer in units of km. Question 4 part 2 of 2 10 points After this first encounter, the bird then turns around and flies from the runner back to the finish line, turns around again and flies back to the runner. The bird repeats the back and forth trips until the runner reaches the finish line. How far does the bird travel from the be- ginning? ( i.e. , include the distance traveled to the first encounter) Answer in units of km. Question 5 part 1 of 1 10 points Identify all of those graphs that represent motion at constant speed (note the axes care- fully). a) t x b) t v c) t a d) t v e) t a 1. (a) only 2. None of these

Find the average acceleration in the time interval from t = 0 to 3 . 23 s. Answer in units of m / s 2 . Question 7 part 2 of 2 10 points Determine the acceleration of the particle at t f = 3 . 23 s.

    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.
