Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The position vector of a particle of mass 2 kg is given as a function of time by vectorr = (7 m) + (4 m / s) t . Determine the magnitude of the angular momentum of the particle with respect to the origin at time 6 s . Correct answer: 56 kg m 2 / s. Explanation: Let : vectorr = x + y , x = 7 m , y = v y t = (4 m / s) t, and t = 6 s . Basic Concepts: vector L = vectorr vectorp Solution: vectorv = vectorr t = v y = (4 m / s) . vector L = vectorr vectorp = m vectorr vectorv = m vectorr vectorr t = m ( vectorx + vectory ) vectorv = m xv y k = (2 kg) (7 m) (4 m / s) k = 56 kg m 2 / s k , and is constant as a function of time since = 0 . 002 10.0 points A solid cylinder of mass M = 11 kg, radius R = 0 . 33 m and uniform density is pivoted on a frictionless axle coaxial with its symmetry axis. A particle of mass m = 2 . 2 kg and initial velocity v = 16 m / s (perpendicular to the cylinders axis) flies too close to the cylinders edge, collides with the cylinder and sticks to it. Before the collision, the cylinder was not ro- tating. What is its angular velocity after the collision? Correct answer: 13 . 8528 rad / s. Explanation: Basic Concept: Conservation of Angu- lar Momentum, L particle z + L cylinder z = const . The axle allows the cylinder to rotate without friction around a fixed axis but it keeps this axis fixed. Let the z coordinate axis run along this axis of rotation; then the axle may exert arbitrary torques in x and y directions but z 0. Consequently, the z componenent of the angular momentum must be conserved, L z = const, hence when the particle collides with the cylinder L before z, part + L before z, cyl = L z, net = L after z, part + L after z, cyl . Before the collision, the cylinder did not rotate hence L before z, cyl = 0 while the particle had angular momentum vector L before part = vectorr vector P = vectorr mvectorv ....
