Midterm Exam, March 5, 2009 NAME: Units must be included in final answers, where appropriate. Note on constants: Magnitude of gravitational acceleration = g = 9.8 m/s 2 Problem 1 A projectile is fired with a speed of 56 m/s at a launch angle of 30 with respect to level ground. a.) What is the maximum height attained by the projectile? b.) Sometime before reaching the top of the trajectory, the projectile has a vertical displacement of half the maximum height. What is the vertical component of the velocity of the projectile when it is at half the maximum height of the trajectory? c.) How far has the projectile traveled horizontally when it first reaches half the maximum height of its flight path?

Problem 2 h 45 A block of mass m = 25 kg slides down an incline of angle 45 . The coefficient of kinetic friction between the surface of the incline and that of the block is μ k = . 26. The block starts its motion at a height of h = 3 / 2 2 . 12 m above the ground. a.) Draw a free body diagram for the block. b.) What is the acceleration of the block? c.) What is the work done on the block by the friction of the incline as it moves from height h to the bottom of the incline?

### What students are saying

• 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.
