Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A vertically pulsed laser fires a 800 MW pulse of 200 ns duration at a small 12 mg pellet at rest. The pulse hits the mass squarely in the center of its bottom side. The speed of light is 3 10 8 m / s and the acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . t h y T b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b v T is the time to reach its maximum height h 12 mg 800 MW 200 ns If the radiation is completely absorbed without other effects, what is the maximum height the mass reaches? Correct answer: 100 . 781 m. Explanation: Let : P = 800 MW = 8 10 8 W , t = 200 ns = 2 10 7 s , m = 12 mg = 1 . 2 10 5 kg , L = 6 cm = 6 10 6 m , c = 3 10 8 m / s , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Applying conservation of energy, we obtain K f K i + U f U i = 0 . Since U i = K f = 0 and K i = p 2 i 2 m , we have p 2 i 2 m + U f = 0 p 2 i 2 m + mg h = 0 . (1) Using conservation of momentum, p i = p em = U c = P t c . (2) Substituting p i from Eq. 2 into Eq. 1, we obtain parenleftbigg P t c parenrightbigg 2 2 m + mg h = 0 P 2 ( t ) 2 2 mc 2 + mg h = 0 . (3) Solving Eq. 3 for the maximum height of the pellets trajectory gives us h = P 2 ( t ) 2 2 m 2 g 1 c 2 (4) = (8 10 8 W) 2 (2 10 7 s) 2 2 (1 . 2 10 5 kg) 2 (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) 1 (3 10 8 m / s) 2 = (0 . 000100781 m) (1 10 6 m / m) = 100 . 781 m . 002 10.0 points A thin tungsten filament of length 0 . 367 m radiates 79 . 1 W of power in the form of elec tromagnetic waves. A perfectly absorbing surface in the form of a hollow cylinder of ra dius 3 . 07 cm and length 0 . 367 m is placed concentrically with the filament. Assume: The radiation is emitted in the radial direction, and neglect end effects. The speed of light is 2 . 99792 10 8 m / s. Calculate the radiation pressure acting on the cylinder. Correct answer: 3 . 7271 10 6 N / m 2 . Explanation: Let : r = 3 . 07 cm = 0 . 0307 m , = 0 . 367 m , c = 2 . 99792 10 8 m / s , and P = 3 . 7271 10 6 N / m 2 . terry (ect328) homework 34 Turner (59130) 2 The intensity of the radiation reaching the walls of the cylinder is I = ( S ) = P 2 r , so the radiation pressure on the walls is p = I c = P 2 r c = 3 . 7271 10 6 N / m 2 2 (0 . 0307 m) (0 . 367 m) (2 . 99792 10 8 m / s) = 3 . 7271 10 6...
