3 Questions
Directions: Answer all three questions. The suggested time is about 15 minutes for answering each of the questions,
which are worth 15 points each. The parts within a question may not have equal weight. Show all your work in the
pink booklet in the spaces provided after each part, NOT in this green insert.
Mech. 1.
A ball of mass M is thrown vertically upward with an initial speed of 0 . It experiences a force of air resistance
k v , where k is a positive constant. The positive direction for all vector quantities is upward.
given by F
Express all algebraic answers in terms of M, k, 0 , and fundamental constants. u = u (a) Does the magnitude of the acceleration of the ball increase, decrease, or remain the same as the ball moves
upward?
____ increases ____ decreases ____ remains the same Justify your answer. u (b) Write, but do NOT solve, a differential equation for the instantaneous speed
as the ball moves upward. of the ball in terms of time t (c) Determine the terminal speed of the ball as it moves downward.
(d) Does it take longer for the ball to rise to its maximum height or to fall from its maximum height back to the
height from which it was thrown?
____longer to rise ____longer to fall Justify your answer.
(e) On the axes below, sketch a graph of velocity versus time for the upward and downward parts of the ball’s
flight, where t f is the time at which the ball returns to the height from which it was thrown. Copyright © 2005 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.

(b) Use your expression from part (a) and the assumption of circular orbits to derive an equation for the orbital
period T of a moon as a function of its orbital radius R.
(c) Which quantities should be graphed to yield a straight line whose slope could be used to determine Saturn’s
mass?
(d) Complete the data table by calculating the two quantities to be graphed. Label the top of each column,
including units.
(e) Plot the graph on the axes below. Label the axes with the variables used and appropriate numbers to indicate
the scale. (f) Using the graph, calculate a value for the mass of Saturn.

Mech. 3.
A system consists of a ball of mass M 2 and a uniform rod of mass M 1 and length d. The rod is attached to a
horizontal frictionless table by a pivot at point P and initially rotates at an angular speed , as shown above
1
left. The rotational inertia of the rod about point P is M 1d 2 . The rod strikes the ball, which is initially at rest.
3
As a result of this collision, the rod is stopped and the ball moves in the direction shown above right. Express all w w answers in terms of M 1 , M 2 , , d, and fundamental constants. (a) Derive an expression for the angular momentum of the rod about point P before the collision. u (b) Derive an expression for the speed of the ball after the collision. (c) Assuming that this collision is elastic, calculate the numerical value of the ratio M 1 M 2 . (d) A new ball with the same mass M 1 as the rod is now placed a distance x from the pivot, as shown above.
Again assuming the collision is elastic, for what value of x will the rod stop moving after hitting the ball? END OF SECTION II, MECHANICS Copyright © 2005 by College Entrance Examination Board. All rights reserved.
