Unformatted text preview: mayorga (jmm5387) Homework 03 Yao (58180) 1 This print-out should have 30 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points An ant starts at one edge of a long strip of paper that is 43 . 7 cm wide. She travels at 1 . 8 cm / s at an angle of 26 with the long edge. How long will it take her to get across? Answer in units of s. 002 10.0 points A ball is thrown and follows the parabolic path shown. Air friction is negligible. Point Q is the highest point on the path. Points P and R are the same height above the ground. Q R P Which of the following diagrams best indi- cates the direction of the acceleration, if any, on the ball at point R ? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. The ball is in free-fall and there is no acceleration at any point on its path. 8. 9. 003 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A colony of troglodytes has been in a lengthy feud with its neighbors on the adjacent cliff. Colony A finally develops an important mili- tary breakthrough: it rolls bombs off its cliff at known rates of speed, thus gaining pinpoint accuracy in its attacks. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . h x COLONY A COLONY B If the cliffs are separated by 47 . 6 m and a bomb is rolled at 6 . 2 m / s, how far down the opposite cliff will it land? Answer in units of m. 004 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points The troglodyte war continues, and a particu- larly offensive member of colony B is located 143 m below the top. At what speed must a bomb be rolled to get him? Answer in units of m / s. 005 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A ski jumper travels down a slope and leaves the ski track moving in the horizontal direc- tion with a speed of 22 m / s as in the figure. The landing incline below her falls off with a slope of = 53 . The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . mayorga (jmm5387) Homework 03 Yao (58180) 2 d 5 3 22 m / s v f y x Calculate the distance d she travels along the incline before landing. Answer in units of m. 006 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points Determine how long the ski jumper is air- borne. Answer in units of s. 007 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points What is the magnitude of the relative angle with which the ski jumper hits the slope? Answer in units of . 008 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points Denote the initial speed of a cannon ball fired from a battleship as v . When the initial projectile angle is 45 with respect to the horizontal, it gives a maximum range R ....
