8.01 Final Exam Solutions, Spring 2005 Name MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY Department of Physics Physics 8.01 Spring 2005 FINAL EXAM CORRECTIONS Tuesday, May 17, 2005 Problem 8a: Express your answer in terms of P E , M E ,and R E . Problem 9: Assume that the mass of the spring is negligible. Problem 10c: The skater is twirling about a fxed axis, and L denotes the angular momentum about that axis. Note on Procedure: If you decide that you do not want us to grade the make-up part of the exam, put an X over the grade box for the Make-Up Exam on the ±rst sheet of the exam. Remember, however, that if you want us to grade what you have written, there is no penalty. The Make-Up part of the ±nal will count only if it brings your average up. 2

8.01 Final Exam Solutions, Spring 2005 Name PART I: QUIZ 13 Part I is the frst oF two parts. It replaces Quiz 13, and will count toward your fnal grade the same as any other weekly quiz. The only di±erence is that lowest oF the frst 12 quizzes will be dropped, while Quiz 13 will not be dropped. Part I is intended to be one third oF the exam, but you are Free to divide your time as you wish. Part II, which is optional, starts on p. 12. Problem 1: Basic concepts about special relativity ( 20 points ) (a) ( 5po in ts ) Which oF the Following statements best describes the relativistic defnition oF momentum and its relationship to the Newtonian defnition, ~ p m ~ v ? (i) The relativistic defnition oF momentum is the same as the Newtonian defnition oF the momentum. (ii) The Newtonian defnition is consistent with all the principles oF relativity, but experimentally it has been Found to Fail at velocities near the speed oF light. It thereFore must be replaced by the relativistic defnition. (iii) The Newtonian defnition oF momentum is inconsistent with the principles oF rela- tivity, because the relativistic transFormation equations (i.e., the Lorentz transFor- mations) imply that iF the Newtonian momentum were conserved in one inertial Frame oF reFerence, it would not be conserved in other inertial Frames oF reFerence.
