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 small block of mass M B = 0.50 kg is placed on a long slab of mass M S = 3.0 kg as shown above. Initially, the slab is at rest and the block has a speed u0 of 4.0 m/s to the right. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the slab is 0.20, and there is no friction between the slab and the horizontal surface on which it moves. (a) On the dots below that represent the block and the slab, draw and label vectors to represent the forces acting on each as the block slides on the slab. At some moment later, before the block reaches the right end of the slab, both the block and the slab attain identical speeds u f . (b) Calculate u f . (c) Calculate the distance the slab has traveled at the moment it reaches u f . (d) Calculate the work done by friction on the slab from the beginning of its motion until it reaches u f . © 2006 The College Board. All rights reserved.

A nonlinear spring is compressed various distances x, and the force F required to compress it is measured for each distance. The data are shown in the table below. x (m) F (N) 0.05 4 0.10 17 0.15 38 0.20 68 0.25 106 Assume that the magnitude of the force applied by the spring is of the form F ( x) = Ax 2 . (a) Which quantities should be graphed in order to yield a straight line whose slope could be used to calculate a numerical value for A ? (b) Calculate values for any of the quantities identified in (a) that are not given in the data, and record these values in the table above. Label the top of the column, including units. (c) On the axes below, plot the quantities you indicated in (a) . Label the axes with the variables and appropriate numbers to indicate the scale. (d) Using your graph, calculate A. The spring is then placed horizontally on the floor. One end of the spring is fixed to a wall. A cart of mass 0.50 kg moves on the floor with negligible friction and collides head-on with the free end of the spring, compressing it a maximum distance of 0.10 m. (e) Calculate the work done by the cart in compressing the spring 0.10 m from its equilibrium length. (f) Calculate the speed of the cart just before it strikes the spring. © 2006 The College Board.

A thin hoop of mass M, radius R, and rotational inertia MR 2 is released from rest from the top of the ramp of length L above. The ramp makes an angle q with respect to a horizontal tabletop to which the ramp is fixed. The table is a height H above the floor. Assume that the hoop rolls without slipping down the ramp and across the table. Express all algebraic answers in terms of given quantities and fundamental constants. (a) Derive an expression for the acceleration of the center of mass of the hoop as it rolls down the ramp. (b) Derive an expression for the speed of the center of mass of the hoop when it reaches the bottom of the ramp. (c) Derive an expression for the horizontal distance from the edge of the table to where the hoop lands on the floor. (d) Suppose that the hoop is now replaced by a disk having the same mass M and radius R. How will the distance from the edge of the table to where the disk lands on the floor compare with the distance determined in part (c) for the hoop? ____ Less than ____ The same as ____ Greater than Briefly justify your response.
