al-ameri (aoa434) – Hwk09 – Stokes – (19102) 1 This print-out should have 16 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. This is Online Homework No9. It is due before 6.00 am on Tuesday 7 April, Abu Dhabi Time (Monday 11.00 pm in Texas) 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Two small spheres of mass m 1 and m 2 are suspended from the ceiling at the same point by massless strings of equal length . The lighter sphere is pulled aside through an angle of θ i from the vertical and let go. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . g Before m 1 θ i m 2 g After θ f At what speed will the lighter mass m 1 hit the heavier mass m 2 ? 1. v 1 i = g ℓ cos θ i 2. v 1 i = g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) 3. v 1 i = 2 g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) 4. v 1 i = 2 g ℓ cos θ i 5. v 1 i = radicalbig g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) 6. v 1 i = radicalbig 2 g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) correct 7. v 1 i = radicalbig 2 g ℓ cos θ i 8. v 1 i = radicalbig g ℓ cos θ i Explanation: The velocity just before the collision v i can be determined by energy conservation. When particle 1 is at its initial condition, it is at rest and displaced by an angle θ i from the vertical. The total energy is all potential and is given by U i = m 1 g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) where (1 - cos θ i ) is the distance above the lowest point. Just before the collision, the en- ergy of sphere 1 is all kinetic energy, 1 2 m 1 v 2 1 i . Equating the two energies gives 1 2 m 1 v 2 1 i = m 1 g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) . Solving for v 1 i gives v 1 i = radicalbig 2 g ℓ (1 - cos θ i ) . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points After lighter sphere is let go and collides with the heavier sphere at the bottom of its swing, two spheres immediately bind together. What is conserved in this collision process? Let E = mechanical energy; P = momentum. 1. Neither E nor P 2. P correct 3. Both E and P 4. E Explanation: This is a perfectly inelastic collision. The speed of the two spheres after collision is de- termined by momentum conservation. 003 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points After the lighter sphere is let go and collides with the heavier sphere at the bottom of its

al-ameri (aoa434) – Hwk09 – Stokes – (19102) 2 swing, the two spheres immediately bind to- gether. What is the speed V f of the combined sys- tem just after the collision? 1. V f = parenleftbigg m 1 + m 2 m 1 parenrightbigg v 1 i 2. V f = parenleftbigg 2 m 1 m 1 + m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i 3. V f = parenleftbigg m 2 m 1 + m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i 4. V f = parenleftbigg 2 m 2 m 1 + m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i 5. V f = parenleftbigg m 1 m 1 + m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i correct 6. V f = parenleftbigg m 1 + m 2 m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i 7. V f = parenleftbigg m 1 + m 2 2 m 2 parenrightbigg v 1 i 8. V f = parenleftbigg m 1 + m 2 2 m 1 parenrightbigg v 1 i Explanation: This is a completely inelastic collision. The speed of the two spheres after collision is de- termined by momentum conservation m 1 v 1 i = ( m 1 + m 2 ) V f (1) where m 1 is the mass and v 1 i is the initial velocity of sphere 1 just before the collision, m 2 is the mass of sphere 2, and V f is the velocity of the combined spheres just after the collision. Note: v 2 i = 0.

    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.
