The figure gives how the force varies as a function of the position. Such force is acting on a particle, which undergoes onedimensional motion. If the particle begins at rest at x=0, 1A Find the x coordinate at which the particle has the greatest kinetic energy ANSWER x = 3 m 1B Find the x coordinate at which the particle has zero speed ANSWER x = 6 m 1 N x (m) 2 N 2 N 1 N 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 F ______________________________________________________________________________ 2. At t=0 two small objects A and B of the same mass m are thrown simultaneously from the level z=0 and with the same initial speed of 10 m/s (the initial velocity makes 45 o with the horizontal.) ObjectA travels free in the air (its trajectory is indicated in the graph) while objectB moves along a frictionless surface of a 45 o ramp. z = 0 z = h 1 m m A B 2A Lets call h 1 the maximum height reached by the objectA. Calculate the horizontal component of the velocity of the objectA when it passes by the maximum height h 1 . ANSWER _____ 7.1 m/s ____________ 2B Calculate the xcomponent of the velocity of the objectB when it passes by the height level z= h 1 . ANSWER _____ 5 m/s _____________ ______________________________________________________________________________ 3. At t=0 two small objects A and B of the same mass m are thrown simultaneously from the level z=0 and with the same initial speed of 10 m/s (the initial velocity makes 45 o with the horizontal.) ObjectA travels free in the air (its trajectory is indicated in...
