Unformatted text preview: smith (js57698) – HW01 – criss – (024809) 1 This print-out should have 18 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A person walks 27 . ◦ north of east for 3 . 98 km. Another person walks due north and due east to arrive at the same location. a) How large is the east component of this second path? Correct answer: 3 . 54621 km. Explanation: Δ y Δ x 3 . 9 8 k m 27 ◦ Note: Figure is not drawn to scale. Basic Concept: Δ x = d (cos θ ) Given: θ = 27 . ◦ d = 3 . 98 km Solution: Δ x = (3 . 98 km)(cos27 ◦ ) = 3 . 54621 km 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) How large is the north component of this second path? Correct answer: 1 . 80688 km. Explanation: Basic Concept: Δ y = d (sin θ ) Solution: Δ y = (3 . 98 km)(sin27 ◦ ) = 1 . 80688 km 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A submarine dives 138 . 0 m at an angle of 17 . ◦ below the horizontal. a) What is the horizontal component of the submarine’s displacement? Correct answer: 131 . 97 m. Explanation: Δ y Δ x 1 3 8 m − 17 ◦ Note: Figure is not drawn to scale. Basic Concept: Δ x = d (cos θ ) Given: d = 138 . 0 m θ = − 17 . ◦ Solution: Δ x = (138 m)[cos( − 17 ◦ )] = 131 . 97 m 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) What is the vertical component of the sub- marine’s displacement? Correct answer: − 40 . 3473 m. Explanation: Basic Concept: Δ y = d (sin θ ) Solution: Δ y = (138 m)[sin( − 17 ◦ )] = − 40 . 3473 m 005 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A descent vehicle landing on the moon has a vertical velocity toward the surface of the moon of 29 m / s. At the same time, it has a horizontal velocity of 54 . 8 m / s. a) At what speed does the vehicle move along its descent path? Correct answer: 62 . 0003 m / s. smith (js57698) – HW01 – criss – (024809) 2 Explanation: v h v v v θ The speeds act at right angles to each other, so v = radicalBig v 2 h + v 2 v = radicalBig (54 . 8 m / s) 2 + (29 m / s) 2 = 62 . 0003 m / s . 006 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) At what angle with the vertical is its path?...
