Physics 53 Quiz 3a Fall 2007 Name ___________________________ Recit. Section _______ Circle the correct answer: 1. [2 points] Two identical objects are moved from the top of a tower down to the ground. The first object is dropped down vertically; the second object slides down along an incline. On which object does gravity do more work? a) Object 1. b) Object 2. c) The work done by gravity is the same for both objects. 2. [3 points] A 2.00 kg block is sliding over a horizontal surface with kinetic friction coefficient μ k = 0.200. It travels a distance of 2.00 m before it comes to rest. What was its initial kinetic energy? [Use g = 10.0 m/s 2 ] a) 2.00 J b) 4.00 J c) 6.00 J d) 8.00 J 3. [3 points] A 60.0 kg person sits in the cabin of a Ferris wheel with

Unformatted text preview: 25.0 m diameter that turns at a constant angular velocity once every 10 minutes. What is the total work done on the person between the lowest and the highest point she reaches during one revolution of the wheel? [Use g = 10.0 m/s 2 ] a) No work is done. b) 15 kJ. c) 30 kJ. 4. [2 points] The maximal angular velocity of a centrifuge is determined by the maximal centripetal force its walls can generate. If two otherwise identical centrifuges differ by a factor four in diameter, the larger centrifuge can be operated with a maximal safe angular velocity that is: a) The same as large as for the smaller one. b) Twice as large as for the smaller one. c) Half as large as for the smaller one....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
