Multiple Choice Problems: 5 Points Each 1. Consider two identical oscillators x 1 ( t ) and x 2 ( t ), oscillating with the same amplitude. The first oscillator is released at rest from its position of maximum displacement, the second oscillator is released at the same moment with positive velocity from the position x 2 = 0. If the two oscillators first have the same displacement ( x 1 = x 2 ) after 2.40 s, counting from the moment of their release, what is their common period? [Assume that the oscillators are not damped.] A) 9.60 s. B) 14.4 s. C) 15.1 s. D) 19.2 s. E) 24.0 s. 2. A bullet is fired into the air by a rifle at an (upward) angle of 60° with respect to the horizontal. If the initial speed of the bullet is 695 m/s and air resistance is neglected, what is the maximum height reached by the bullet on its trajectory? A) 6.04 km. B) 9.06 km. C) 12.1 km. D) 17.1 km. E) 18.1 km. 3. Three masses are to be balanced on a uniform board 8.00 m in length, which is pivoted about its center. Masses m A = 3.00 kg and m B = 2.00 kg are positioned at either end, as shown. At which location x (measured from the center, see figure) should a third mass m = 2.50 kg (shown in black) be positioned in order to balance the board?
