Unformatted text preview: hiarker (srh959) – oldhomework 06 – Turner – (58220) 1 This print-out should have 12 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A quarterback takes the ball from the line of scrimmage, runs backward for 11 yards, then runs sideways parallel to the line of scrim- mage for 16 yards. At this point, he throws a 22 yards forward pass straight downfield perpendicular to the line of scrimmage. What is the magnitude of the football’s resultant displacement? Correct answer: 19 . 4165 yards. Explanation: Let the x direction be parallel to line of scrimmage. Given : ∆ y 1 =- 11 yards , ∆ x = ± 16 yards , and ∆ y 2 = 22 yards . ∆ y tot = ∆ y 1 + ∆ y 2 =- 11 yards + 22 yards = 11 yards ∆ x tot = ∆ x = ± 16 yards The displacements are perpendicular, so d = radicalBig (∆ x tot ) 2 + (∆ y tot ) 2 = radicalBig ( ± 16 yards) 2 + (11 yards) 2 = 19 . 4165 yards . 002 (part 1 of 5) 10.0 points A commuter airplane starts from an airport located at the origin. First it flies to city A located 110 km away from the airport in a direction 36 ◦ North of East. Next it flies 52 . 4 km at 26 ◦ West of North to city B. Finally it flies 188 km due West to city C. A B C O a c b r α β γ N N E W What is the x-component of the vector vector b ? Consider E to be the positive x axis and N to be the positive y axis. 1. b x = b tan β 2. b x =- b sin β correct 3. b x = b cos β 4. b x = b sin β 5. b x =- b cos β 6. b x =- b tan β Explanation: Let : b = 52 . 4 km and β = 26 ◦ . For vectorv = ( v x , v y ) and vectoru = ( u x , u y ) , vectorr = vectoru + vectorv = ( v x + u x , v y + u y ) b β | b x | | b y | Also, for β < 90 ◦ (as in this problem), vector b is in the second quadrant; i.e. , its x component is negative and its y component positive: b x =- b sin β =- (52 . 4 km) sin26 ◦ =- 22 . 9706 km ....
