Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10 points A ball tied to the end of a string swings in a vertical arc under the influence of gravity, as in the figure. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 9 . 8 m / s 2 . 7 8 5 m 1 . 3 8 m / s 2 3 . 8 Find the magnitude of the radial accelera- tion. Correct answer: 2 . 42599 m / s 2 . Explanation: Let : v = 1 . 38 m / s , r = 0 . 785 m , = 23 . 8 , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . g r a r a a v 6 = 0 v = 1 . 38 m / s Since v = 1 . 38 m / s and r = 0 . 785 m, we find that the magnitude of the radial acceler- ation at this instant is a r = v 2 r = (1 . 38 m / s) 2 (0 . 785 m) = 2 . 42599 m / s 2 . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10 points When the ball is at an angle 23 . 8 to the vertical, it has a tangential acceleration of magnitude g sin (produced by the tangential component of the force m~g ). Therefore, at = 23 . 8 , using the formula a = g sin , we obtain a = 3 . 95475 m / s 2 . Find the magnitude of the total accelera- tion at = 23 . 8 . Correct answer: 4 . 63955 m / s 2 . Explanation: Since ~a = ~a r + ~a t , and the vectors ~a r and ~a t are perpendicular, the magnitude of k ~a k at = 23 . 8 is a = k ~a k = q a 2 r + a 2 = q (2 . 42599 m / s 2 ) 2 + (3 . 95475 m / s 2 ) 2 = 4 . 63955 m / s 2 . 003 (part 3 of 3) 10 points Calculate the angle between the total acceler- ation ~a and the string at = 23 . 8 . Correct answer: 58 . 4735 . Explanation: From the figure we see that a a r = tan , so = arctan a a r = arctan 3 . 95475 m / s 2 2 . 42599 m / s 2 = (1 . 02056 rad) (57 . 2958 deg / rad) = 58 . 4735 .
