STUDENT NR: PHYS 1010 6.0: CLASS TEST 3 Time: 50 minutes; Calculators & formulae provided at the end = only aid; Total = 20 points. 1) [5] Alice ( m = 50 kg) is on a skateboard ( M = 2 kg) moving with v = 5 m/s on a flat stretch of road. She jumps off backwards such that the board is propelled forward to a speed of 8 m/s. What is her velocity with respect to the ground as she lands? Ignore friction and drag, and note that magnitude and direction are required (the board is moving in the + x direction). 2) [5] A squash ball ( m = 100 g) flies very fast horizontally towards a wall ( v x = 40 m/s), and makes a perfect rebound (no mechanical energy loss). Use the impulse-momentum theorem to calculate the impulse provided by the wall in SI units (be careful with the sign). Then sketch a possible F x ( t ) curve together with an average force estimate assuming the collision took Δ t = 10 ms. 1
