Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points One cubic meter (1.0 m 3 ) of aluminum has a mass of 2700 kg, and a cubic meter of iron has a mass of 7860 kg. Find the radius of a solid aluminum sphere that has the same mass as a solid iron sphere of radius 3 . 12 cm. Correct answer: 4 . 45493 cm. Explanation: Let : m Al = 2700 kg , m Fe = 7860 kg , and r Fe = 3 . 12 cm . Density is ρ = m V .

Assume its density is 8 . 8 g / cm 3 . Correct answer: 13 . 747 kg. Explanation: Let : r 1 = 4 . 6 cm , r 2 = 2 . 9 cm , ℓ = 39 cm , and ρ = 8 . 8 g / cm 3 . V = π r 2 1 ℓ − π r 2 2 ℓ = π ( r 2 1 − r 2 2 ) ℓ, so the density is ρ = m V m = ρV = ρπ ( r 2 1 − r 2 2 ) ℓ = (8 . 8 g / cm 3 ) π × [(4 . 6 cm) 2 − (2 . 9 cm) 2 ] × (39 cm) 1 kg 1000 g = 13 . 747 kg . 003 10.0 points Suppose the volume V of some object happens to depend on time t according to the equation V ( t ) = At 3 + B t 2 , where A and B are some constants. Let L and T denote dimensions of length and time, respectively. lenoir (wml297) – oldmidterm 01 – Turner – (58220) 2 What is the dimension of the constant A ? 1. L 2 / T 2. L / T 3 3. L 3 / T 3 correct 4. L / T 5. L 3 · T 3 Explanation: The term At 3 has dimensions of volume, so [ V ] = [ A ] [ t ] 3 [ A ] = [ V ] [ t ] 3 = L 3 T 3 . 004 10.0 points Consider a car which is traveling along a straight road with constant acceleration a . There are two checkpoints A and B which are a distance 83 . 1 m apart. The time it takes for the car to travel from A to B is 5 . 26 s. A B 4 . 78 m / s 2 83 . 1 m Find the velocity v B for the case where the acceleration is 4 . 78 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 28 . 3699 m / s. Explanation: Let : Δ x = 83 . 1 m , Δ t = 5 . 26 s , and a = 4 . 78 m / s 2 . ¯ v = v A + v B = Δ x Δ t v A = 2 Δ x Δ t − v B and v B = v A + a Δ t = parenleftbigg 2 Δ x Δ t − v B parenrightbigg + a Δ t 2 v B = 2 Δ x Δ t + a Δ t v B = Δ x Δ t + a Δ t 2 = 83 . 1 m 5 . 26 s + (4 . 78 m / s 2 ) (5 . 26 s) 2 = 28 . 3699 m / s . 005 10.0 points A tennis ball with a speed of 24 . 2 m / s is moving perpendicular to a wall. After striking the wall, the ball rebounds in the opposite direction with a speed of 16 . 093 m / s....
