Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. Kinetic Energy of a Car 07:01, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, nor- mal. 001 (part 1 of 1) 1 points A(n) 1600 kg car travels at a speed of 12 . 5 m / s. What is its kinetic energy? Correct answer: 125000 J. Explanation: Kinetic energy is K = 1 2 mv 2 = 1 2 (1600 kg)(12 . 5 m / s) 2 = 125000 J keywords: Drag a Crate 07:03, trigonometry, numeric, > 1 min, wording-variable. 002 (part 1 of 3) 1 points Sally applies a horizontal force of 462 N with a rope to drag a wooden crate across a floor with a constant speed. The rope tied to the crate is pulled at an angle of 48 ◦ relative to the floor. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . m F 462 N 4 8 ◦ How much force is exerted by the rope on the crate? Correct answer: 690 . 448 N. Explanation: Given : F h = 462 N , and θ = 48 ◦ . The horizontal component of the force exerted by the rope is defined by cos θ = F h F so that F = F h cos θ = 462 N cos 48 ◦ = 690 . 448 N ....
