Ph1a Solutions 8 Chefung Chan ([email protected]) 21 November 2004 Each homework problem is worth 5 points. Please disregard the point values listed on the problem itself. Use these instead. 8.1 Serway 12.24(6th)/12.22(5th) (5 points) 8.1.a (5 points) For the bricks to stay on the ledge, their combined center of mass must be directly above the ledge. We define x = 0 at the corner of the ledge and the overhang of the bottom brick as x 0 . The centers of mass of the two bricks are: CM top = x - L/ 2 CM bottom = x 0 - L/ 2 CM combined = 1 2 (CM top + CM bottom ) = 1 2 ( x + x 0 - L ) The conditions for support are: CM top x 0 x - L/ 2 x 0 CM combined 0 1 2 ( x + x 0 - L ) 0 x - x 0 L/ 2 x + x 0 L x 3 4 L 8.2 FP3 (5 points) 8.2.a (2 points) The volume flow rate must be constant which implies ( vA ) hose = ( vA ) end , where v is the speed of the fluid and A is the cross sectional area. Since A end = 1 / 2 A hose , v end = 2 v hose = 2 * 5 m / s = 10 m / s. 8.2.b (3 points) First, change units to SI units: P end = 1 atm = 1 × 10 5 Pa, P hose = 0 . 5 atm = 5 × 10 4 Pa. Bernoulli’s equation gives: P end + 1 / 2

### 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.
