ABOUT THIS BOOK
The AP Physics exam may appear daunting at first, but if you’ve prepared for the test throughout the year and take the time to use this book properly, it should not be that difficult. We have tried to make this a workable book. In other words, the book is set up so that you will be able to find the material that is necessary to study and be fully prepared when it’s time to take the actual test. The book begins with a Physics Diagnostic Test. The purpose of the Diagnostic Test is to help you get a handle on what you know and what needs more work. We have included material from the General Physics section, as well as questions from both the Physics B and Physics C exams. Take this exam (and all of the tests) under simulated exam conditions, if you can. What this means is that you should • • • find a quiet place in which to work set up a time or a clock take the test without stopping When you are finished, take a break and then go back and check your answers. Always reread those questions you got wrong, since sometimes errors come from merely misreading the question. Again, doublecheck your answers, and if they’re still not clear, read the review material. We also suggest that you answer all of the questions, regardless of the version of the exam you plan to take. Once you’ve completed the Diagnostic Test, it’s time to move on to the physics review. Study the material carefully, but feel free to skim portions of the review section that are easy for you. There are eighteen chapters in all. In fact, before you begin any of this work, it would be helpful to consult the suggested study plans that follow this introduction. Then, take the actual practice tests. There are two practice exams for Physics B and two practice exams for Physics C. These tests are designed to give you an idea of the types of questions you will encounter on the exam. While these are not actual exams, the questions themselves are the same types of questions you will find the on the actual AP Physics tests. As you complete each exam, take some time to review your answers. We think you’ll find a marked improvement in your scores from the time you take the Diagnostic Test to the time you complete all of the fulllength practice tests. As you go through the tests, circle those answers that you are not sure of, so you can go back and review them. Always take the time to check the review section for clarification, and if you still don’t understand the material, go to your teacher for help.
AP Success: Physics B/C v www.petersons.com 01fm.pmd 5 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM INTRODUCTION ABOUT THE TESTS
The Physics B exam is 3 hours long. The first section contains 70 multiplechoice questions, and the second is a freeresponse section that contains 6 to 8 questions. You will have 1½ hours to take each section of this test. The Physics C exam also consists of two parts, each 1½ hours long. One part covers mechanics and the other part covers electricity and magnetism. You may take either part, or you may take both parts, and you will get separate grades for each section. There are 35 multiplechoice questions in each section, and each part has a free response section as well. There are usually three questions in each free response section. TAKING THE TEST
1. Since you will have 3 hours in which to complete the exam, it is important to pace yourself. You should also make sure you are thoroughly familiar with the directions for the tests so that you don’t have to waste time trying to understand them once you’ve opened your test booklet. 2. Work through the easy questions first. The faster you complete those questions, the more time you’ll have for those that are more difficult. You may use your test book for scratch paper, but keep your answer sheet clean, since they are machinereadable, and any stray marks might be construed as an answer. 3. The multiplechoice questions have five lettered choices. As with any multiplechoice question, you should approach each one by first trying to select the correct answer. If the answer is clear to you, select it at once. If you’re unsure, the first technique is the process of elimination. Try to cross off any answers that don’t seem to make sense or that you know are completely wrong. This improves your odds of guessing the correct answer. If, for example, you can eliminate three choices, you have a 50/50 chance of guessing the correct answer. Otherwise, if you can’t eliminate any choices, you have only a 20 percent, rather than a 50 percent, chance of getting the answer correct. The penalty for an incorrect answer is onequarter point, so it may be advisable to guess. With diligent studying, careful preparation, and a positive attitude, you can help yourself succeed. Good luck! www.petersons.com vi AP Success: Physics B/C 01fm.pmd 6 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM RED ALERT
AP PHYSICS STUDY PLAN
When you begin to study for your AP Physics exam, the most important thing you should have is a plan. The first thing you should do is to estimate how much time you have before exam day. The more time, the better. If, however, you’re somewhat short on time, this study plan will be extremely valuable for you. We offer these different study plans to help maximize your time and studying. The first is a 12Week Plan, which involves concentrated studying and a focus on the sample test results. The second is the more leisurely 24Week Plan, the one that’s favored by schools. Finally, if time is running short, you should use the Panic Plan. We don’t want you to really panic—this plan is supposed to help you conquer that panic and help you organize your studying so that you can get the most out of your review work and still be as prepared as possible. These plans are supposed to be flexible and are only suggestions. Feel free to modify them to suit your needs and your own study habits. But start immediately. The more you study and review the questions, the better your results will be. THE 12WEEK PLAN—2 LESSONS PER WEEK WEEK 1
Lesson 1— Diagnostic Test.
The AP Physics Diagnostic Test is designed to help you determine what you need to know and where to focus your study. Take this test under simulated test conditions in a quiet room and keep track of the time it takes to complete the test. The test consists of three sections: General Physics, Mechanics, and Electricity and Magnetism. Each section consists of fourteen multiple choice questions and one freeresponse question. Regardless of which specific test you intend to take, you should answer all of the questions on this test to get an idea of your weakest areas. Once you have completed the test, carefully check all of your answers, and read through the explanations. This may take quite a bit of time, as will all of the tests, but it will enable you to select those Lesson 2— Diagnostic Test—Answers. RED 1 ALERT 02redalert.pmd 1 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM RED ALERT subject areas that you should focus on and spend the most amount of time studying. With this information, you can start reviewing the chapters in the rest of the book. If you’re short on study time, use the results of this test to focus your study efforts on the specific chapters in the review section that will better help you understand the material that you missed on the test. WEEK 2
Lesson 1—
Chapter One: Kinematics. The review section of this book consists of eighteen chapters. It’s an enormous amount of work, so you’ll have to be extremely diligent about reviewing this material. These chapters fall under five major sections: Newtonian Mechanics, Thermal Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, Waves and Optics, and Atomic and Nuclear Physics. Kinematics is the first chapter under the Newtonian Mechanics section, and 50 percent of the CLevel test consists of Newtonian Mechanics questions. Take your time to read through the first chapter. Underline or use a marker to highlight those areas that are unclear to you. Lesson 2— Chapter Two: Newton’s Law of Motion. Again, read through this chapter, mark whatever is unclear, and go back and read the material again, if necessary. WEEK 3
Lesson 1— Chapter Three: Work, Energy, Power. As you continue your lessons, try to
study in a quiet room, uninterrupted by others in your household or the TV, radio, or any outside noises. Lesson 2— Chapter Four: System of Particles, Linear Momentum. Again, read
through this chapter, mark whatever is unclear, and go back and read the material again, if necessary. WEEK 4
Lesson 1— Chapter Five: Circular Motion and Rotation. You can, of course, break
these lessons into sections. Work on half the chapter in the morning and the other half in the afternoon. Lesson 2— Chapter Six: Oscillations and Gravitations. Read through this chapter,
mark whatever is unclear, and then go back and read the material again, if necessary. You can always ask your teacher for additional information if you’re having difficulty. If you are taking the CLevel exam, you might want to spend the next week reviewing chapters one through six. www.petersons.com R ED 2 A LERT AP Success: Physics B/C 02redalert.pmd 2 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM RED ALERT WEEK 5
Lesson 1— Lesson 2—
Chapter Seven: Temperature and Heat. This is the first of two chapters under the Thermal Physics section. Chapter Eight: Kinetic Theory and Thermodynamics. If you find that you’ve finished reading and reviewing Temperature and Heat with time to spare, you can double up and complete Chapter 8. You will then have more time to reread these two chapters and go to the next lesson. WEEK 6
Lesson 1—
Chapter Nine: Electrostatics. The third unit is Electricity and Magnetism, and this material in the next five chapters represents 50 percent of the CLevel exam, so it pays to focus heavily on these chapters. Chapter Ten: Conductors, Capacitors, Dielectrics. This is the second chapter in this unit. Take your time to make sure you fully understand all of the material. Lesson 2— WEEK 7
Lesson 1—
Chapter Eleven: Electric Circuits. This is the midway point of this unit if you’re preparing only for the CLevel exam. These questions on Electricity and Magnetism also represent at least 25 percent of the BLevel exam, so it’s important to understand what you’re studying. Chapter Twelve: Magnostatics. Again, if you find yourself finished with a section faster than you anticipated, or the pace of this study plan is too slow, feel free to add additional reading to your lessons. Lesson 2— WEEK 8
Lesson 1—
Chapter Thirteen: Electromagnetism. This is the last chapter of this unit, and if you’re taking the CLevel exam, you have several choices. You can either reread the material in the two major units that are covered on your exam, you can skip to the final tests given at the end of this book, or you can continue to read through the rest of the chapters to make sure you have a complete understanding of AP Physics. Chapter Fourteen: Wave Motion. This chapter is part of the Waves and Optics unit that consists of three chapters. Lesson 2— WEEK 9
Lesson 1—
Chapter Fifteen: Physical Optics. If you find these chapters difficult, you might want to take a break from your reading. Give yourself a day or two to just relax—assuming you have the time. AP Success: Physics B/C R ED 3 A LERT www.petersons.com 02redalert.pmd 3 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM RED ALERT Lesson 2— Chapter Sixteen: Geometric Optics. This has been a very concentrated period of study, and you’re almost done. Make sure to keep highlighting anything you don’t fully understand. WEEK 10
Lesson 1—
Chapter Seventeen: Atomic Physics and Quantum Effects. This chapter is the first in the Atomic and Nuclear Physics unit. These last two chapters represent about 15 percent of the BLevel test. Chapter Eighteen: Nuclear Physics. The end of a long study road. This is the last review chapter. If you have time to spare when you’ve completed all of these chapters, you might want to go back and check any topics or questions that you didn’t understand, and make an appointment with your teacher to go over these topics. Lesson 2— WEEK 11
Lesson 1— AP Physics Practice Test 1, Level B. Take this test and answer all of the
questions you can, and then guess at those you don’t know. Circle the questions that you guessed at so that you can zero in on those specific answers. It’s important to evaluate what you know. Check all of your answers. Lesson 2— AP Physics Practice Test 2, Level B. Take this test and answer all of the questions you can, and then guess at those you don’t know. Circle those questions that you guessed at so that you can zero in on those specific answers. Check all of your answers. WEEK 12
Lesson 1—
AP Physics Practice Test 1, Level C. Take this test and answer all of the questions you can, and then guess at those you don’t know. Circle those questions that you guessed at so that you can zero in on those specific answers. It’s important to evaluate what you know. Check all of your answers. AP Physics Practice Test 2, Level C. Take this test and answer all of the questions you can and then guess at those you don’t know. Circle those questions that you guessed at so that you can zero in on those specific answers. Check all of your answers. Lesson 2— www.petersons.com R ED 4 A LERT AP Success: Physics B/C 02redalert.pmd 4 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM RED ALERT THE 24WEEK PLAN—1 LESSON PER WEEK
If you’re lucky enough to have the extra time, the 24Week Plan will enable you to better utilize your study time. You will now be able to spread out your plan into one lesson a week. This plan is ideal because you are not under any pressure, and you can take more time to review the material in each of the chapters. You will also have enough time to doublecheck the answers to those questions that might have given you problems. Keep in mind that the basis for all test success is practice, practice, practice. If you’re taking the CLevel exam, you can either shorten your study time or take the extra few weeks to reread everything. THE PANIC PLAN
While we hope you don’t fall into this category, not everyone has the luxury of extra time to prepare for the AP Physics test. Perhaps, however, we can offer you a few helpful hints to get you through this period. Read through the official AP Physics bulletin and this AP Success: Physics B/C book and memorize the directions. One way of saving time on this, or any, test, is to be familiar with the directions in order to maximize the time you have to work on the questions. On this test, the directions are pretty simple. You may also want to take the time to look at additional material on the Internet. You can find more information about the AP Physics test on the Internet at www.collegeboard.org/ap/physics/. Read the introduction to this book. It will be helpful in preparing for the test and give you an understanding of what you can expect on the exam and how much time you will have to complete both sections of the test. Take the Diagnostic Test as well as the practice tests. Focus whatever time you have left on those specific areas of the test that gave you the most difficulty when you took the practice tests. Whatever time you have before the exam, keep in mind that the more you practice, the better you will do on the final exam.

The correct answer is (E). For a change in temperature, the heat supplied is given by Q = mc∆T . To heat the ice to 0oC, Q = (200 g)(0.5 cal/gCo) (20Co) = 2,000 cal. At the rate of 100 cal/s, this will take 20 s. To melt the ice requires Q = mL, where L is the heat of fusion. Then Q = (200 g)(80 cal/g), requiring 16,000 cal or 160 s. To bring the water formed up to 100oC requires Q = (200 g)(1 cal/g–Co)(100Co) = 20,000 cal, or another 200 s. The elapsed time so far is 380 s, leaving 920 – 380 = 540 s for boiling. This will supply 54,000 cal. At a heat of vaporization of 540 cal/g, this is sufficient to boil 100 g of water. 3. The correct answer is (C).

KINEMATICS KINEMATICS
MOTION IN ONE DIMENSION DEFINITIONS Motion in one dimension is exemplified by motion along a straight line. Coordinate System—Motion is a change of position, so in order to discuss motion, we must first discuss position. To discuss position, we must choose an origin and a reference direction. These choices are arbitrary and must be made before the position can be defined. For example, the origin can be in the middle of a horizontal line, and the reference direction can be to the right. We will call the reference direction the “+ direction.” In one dimension, only one other direction is possible. In this example, that direction is toward the left. We call that direction the “– direction.” When we have identified a reference direction and origin, we say that we have defined the (one dimensional) coordinate system that we will be using. Position—The position of an object in one dimension is specified by stating two things: the distance from the origin and the direction from the origin to the object. Thus, an object with position –6 meters is 6 meters to the left of the origin. If it moves to a position of –3 meters, it is now 3 meters to the left of the origin. Displacement—The change in position is calculated by subtracting the initial position from the final position. In the subtraction, the + and – direction signs are treated as algebra signs. An object that moves from –6 meters to –3 meters has a change of position of +3 meters. The algebraic representation of this calculation uses x as the symbol for position and ∆x as the symbol for change in position. We write: ∆x is called the displacement of the object. ∆x = xFINAL − xINITIAL = −3 m − ( −6 m) = +3 m 41 04chap1.pmd 41 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM CHAPTER 1 Velocity—Velocity is defined as the rate of change of position. Average velocity, < v > , is defined as the change in position, ∆x , divided by the time required to make the change, ∆t : < v > = ∆x ∆t Instantaneous velocity is the limit of the average velocity as the time interval (and thus also the change in position) approaches zero. It is the time derivative of the position. v = lim ∆t → 0 ∆x dx = ∆t dt Velocity can be positive or negative, depending on the direction of the displacement. The velocity can be zero while the position is not zero. The velocity can be large at a time when the position is zero. Acceleration—Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Average acceleration, < a > , is defined as the change in velocity, ∆v , divided by the time required to make the change, ∆t : < a > = ∆v ∆t Instantaneous acceleration is the limit of the average acceleration as the time interval (and thus also the change in velocity) approaches zero. It is the time derivative of the position. a = lim ∆t → 0 ∆v dv = ∆t dt Acceleration can be positive or negative, depending on the direction of the change in velocity. The acceleration can be zero while the velocity is not zero. The acceleration can be large at a time when the velocity is zero. MOTION WITH CONSTANT ACCELERATION
EQUATIONS Position as a Function of Time—For one dimensional motion with constant acceleration, a, the position, x, as a function of time, t, is given by x= 12 at + v0 t + x0 2 where x0 is the position at time t = 0 (the initial position) and v0 is the velocity at time t = 0 (the initial velocity). The position is the definite integral of the velocity from t = 0 to t. Velocity as a Function of Time—For one dimensional motion with constant acceleration, a, the velocity, v, as a function of time, t, is given by www.petersons.com 42 AP Success: Physics B/C 04chap1.pmd 42 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM KINEMATICS v = at + v0, where v0 is the velocity at time t = 0 (the initial velocity). The velocity is the definite integral of the (constant) acceleration from t = 0 to t. It is also the time derivative of the position given above. Velocity as a Function of Position—The two equations give the complete solution for the motion of an object (for the case of constant acceleration). A partial solution can be created by combining those two so as to eliminate the time variable. The result gives the velocity as a function of position:
2 v 2 − v0 = 2 a( x − x0 ) This equation does not allow determination of the direction of the velocity since a velocity of either sign will satisfy it. This equation is replaced later, for any acceleration, by the workenergy theorem. FREE “FALL” It has been determined experimentally that any object falling without resistance near the surface of the earth has a downward acceleration of 9.8 m/sec2. This acceleration is said to be due to the earth’s gravity. An object moving vertically and subject to only the earth’s gravity is an ideal example of one dimensional motion with constant acceleration. It is important to note that the acceleration is the same whether the object is a. moving upward (with decreasing magnitude of velocity), b. moving downward (with increasing magnitude of velocity), or c. standing still at the top of the path (zero velocity). Problem solutions are typically set up with the origin at the lowest point in the problem and with t = 0 when the object begins its flight. In many physics exercises, cars are understood to accelerate forward at a constant rate when the gas pedal is pressed. They are understood to accelerate backward at a constant rate when the brake pedal is pressed. GRAPHS

Motion is a change of position, so to discuss motion, we must first discuss position. To discuss position, we must choose an origin and a reference direction. These choices are arbitrary and must be made before the position can be defined. DISTANCE/ANGLE METHOD As in one dimension, we may describe the position of an object by its distance from the origin and the direction in which it is displaced from the origin. We choose a location for the origin and a reference direction. Traditionally, the reference direction points to the right along a horizontal straight line. We draw an arrow from the origin to the object. The length of the arrow is a distance and is called the magnitude of the position vector. For us, a vector is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. The angle that the arrow line makes with the reference direction is taken as the direction of the position vector. COMPONENT METHOD For this description, we add a second reference direction. Calling the original direction (traditionally to the right) the x direction, our second direction is called the y direction. The y direction is by definition perpendicular to the x direction. Traditionally, this is taken to be upward on the page. When y points up (instead of down), with x to the right, we say that we have a right handed coordinate system. The component description of a vector tells how much of the vector is along the x direction and how much is along the y direction. The figures below show two different vectors and their components. AP Success: Physics B/C 47 www.petersons.com 04chap1.pmd 47 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM CHAPTER 1 VECTOR ALGEBRA Vector Addition and Subtraction—Vectors are added following rules that work for adding steps in a journey on foot. A + B is determined by placing the tail of the B vector on the tip of the A vector. The resultant vector, A + B is the vector from the tail of A to the tip of B , as in the figure below. The vector difference A − B is as the sum of the vector A , with the “reverse” of the vector B , called − B . As in the figure, − B points opposite to B . www.petersons.com 48 AP Success: Physics B/C 04chap1.pmd 48 8/4/2003, 10:53 AM KINEMATICS Using the component method as sketched above, the magnitude of the vector sum of A and B is A + B = [ Ax + Bx ]2 + [ Ay + By ]2 = [ A + B]x 2 + [ A + B]y 2 .
The angle, θ , between A + B and the reference direction (x=axis) is given by tan θ A+ B =
[ Ay + By ] [ Ax + Bx ] = [ A + B ]y [ A + B ]x . The results for the difference between A and B can be found by simply placing a – sign in front of each B above. Scalar Multiplication of a Vector—When a vector is multiplied by a scalar (a number with no direction), the magnitude (length) of the vector is multiplied by that number, and the direction is unchanged. Scalar (“dot”) Product of Two Vectors—The scalar product,
A • B = AB cos(θ) = [ Ax Bx ] + [ Ay By ] is the product of the magnitudes times the cosine of the angle between the two vectors. This product can be positive or negative, depending on the sign of the cosine. Vector (“cross”) Product of Two Vectors—The vector product of two vectors has magnitude / A × B / = AB sin(θ) . The vector product also has direction. It is perpendicular to the plane defined by the A and B vectors. There are two directions that satisfy that condition. The ambiguity is resolved with a righthand rule. If A and B lie in the page, and if A must turn clockwise to become parallel to B , then the direction of A × B is into the page. Note that A × B = − B × A . Displacement—The change in position is calculated by subtracting the initial position vector from the final position vector. The algebraic representation of this calculation uses r as the symbol for position and ∆r as the symbol for change in position. We write: ∆r = rFINAL − rINITIAL The arrows above r emphasize the vector nature of the position by reminding us that it has a direction as well as a magnitude. ∆r is called the displacement of the object.

Average velocity vector, < v >, is defined as the change in position, ∆r , divided by the time required to make the change, ∆t : < v >= The instantaneous velocity vector is the limit of the average velocity as the time interval (and thus also the change in position) approaches zero. It is the time derivative of the position. ∆r ∆t v = lim ∆r dr = ∆t → 0 ∆t dt Acceleration—Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Average acceleration, < a >, is defined as the change in velocity, v , divided by the time required to make the change, ∆t : < a >= Instantaneous acceleration is the limit of the average acceleration as the time interval (and thus also the change in velocity) approaches zero. It is the time derivative of the velocity. ∆v ∆t a = lim ∆v dv = ∆t → 0 ∆t dt THE EXPERIMENTAL SITUATION Near the surface of the earth, it is found that all freely falling objects have the same acceleration, a = ⎢9.8 , DOWNWARD ⎥ ≡ g . sec 2 Freely falling means that no force except gravity acts on the object. In particular, we ignore wind resistance. When an object is launched into the air with some initial velocity, it is freely falling after launch, even though it might not be moving downward. The motion of such an object near the surface of the earth is the simplest example of projectile motion. THE EQUATIONS OF MOTION AS A FUNCTION OF TIME If we choose our xaxis to be horizontal and our yaxis to be vertical (the traditional choices) then the acceleration in the x direction is zero, while the acceleration in the y direction is −9.8 ⎡ ⎣ m ⎤ ⎦ m . sec 2 www.petersons.com 50 AP Success: Physics B/C 04chap1.pmd 50 8/4/2003, 10:54 AM KINEMATICS In these coordinates, the projectile motion separates; the x motion is independent of the y motion (as long as the object is free falling). The equation of motion for the y component of the motion is y= 1⎛ m⎞2 ⎜ −9.8 ⎟ t + v0 y t + y0 2⎝ sec 2 ⎠ where y0 is the y component of the initial position, and v0 y is the y component of the initial velocity. (The x and y components of initial velocity are found from the magnitude and direction of the initial velocity. One uses the same trigonometric method as was used to find the x and y components of a position vector.) The y component of the velocity can be obtained by differentiation: m⎞ ⎛ vy = ⎜ −9.8 ⎟ t + v0 y ⎝ sec 2 ⎠
The x component of the motion is more simple, since there is no acceleration in the x direction: x = v0 x t + x0
and the x component of the velocity is constant: vx = v0 x
THE TRAJECTORY The trajectory is a plot of the y component of the motion versus the x component of the motion. Each point on the trajectory represents the position at a particular time. It can be found by solving the x equation for t and replacing t in the y equation: ⎡ x − x0 ⎤ 1⎛ m ⎞ ⎡ x − x0 ⎤ y = ⎜ −9.8 ⎥ + v0 y ⎢ ⎥ + y0 2⎟⎢ 2⎝ sec ⎠ ⎣ v0 x ⎦ ⎣ v0 x ⎦

In either case, the trajectory is a segment of a parabola, curving downward. We may ask, for example, for the x component of the position when the particle has returned to its initial height. The answer is often called the range of the projectile. 2 AP Success: Physics B/C 51 www.petersons.com 04chap1.pmd 51 8/4/2003, 10:54 AM CHAPTER 1 CIRCULAR MOTION
TWO DIMENSIONAL VECTOR DESCRIPTION For an object moving in a circular path, we choose the origin of the coordinate system to be at the center of the circle. The position vector has constant magnitude r and a direction that varies as the object moves around the circle. The velocity vector, v = dr , is nonzero solely because of the changdt ing direction of r . The velocity vector is tangent to the circular path and always perpendicular to r . The acceleration vector, a = dv , has two components—a radial dt component and a tangential component. The radial component is called the centripetal acceleration. It is directed toward the center of the circle and has magnitude aC = v2 . r The tangential component of acceleration is zero if the magnitude of the velocity is constant. Otherwise, it causes changes in the velocity magnitude. If the velocity is constant, v = 2 πr ,where T is the period of the T motion—the time to make one round trip. For constant velocity, aC = 4 π 2r , and the tangential acceleration is zero. T2 REDUCTION TO A ONE DIMENSIONAL DESCRIPTION If we narrow down our focus to the circular path, like a driver on a circular race track, circular motion can be described as one dimensional motion (on a curved path). Position is measured from a reference position on the curve (traditionally the intersection of the xaxis with the curve, with the xaxis passing through the center of the circle). Traditionally, counterclockwise is taken to be the + direction around the circle. We name the position along the circle s. s is a onedimensional vector. The velocity is also onedimensional: v = ds . v is tangent to the circle. dt When we use this one dimensional model, we ignore the centripetal acceleration. The only acceleration is the component tangent to the circle, a= dv . If the object moves at constant speed, v = constant , the onedt dimensional acceleration (tangential acceleration) is zero. www.petersons.com 52 AP Success: Physics B/C 04chap1.pmd 52 8/4/2003, 10:54 AM KINEMATICS ANGULAR DESCRIPTION Continue to use an xaxis that passes through the center of the circle as a reference. The position vector, r , makes an angle θ with the xaxis. Traditionally, θ is positive when it opens in the counterclockwise direction. Taking the magnitude of r as given, θ measures the angular position of the object. We define angular velocity, ω = dθ , and angular acceleration, dt α= dω . For constant angular acceleration, we have the usual equations dt 12 αt + ω 0 t + θ 0 and ω = αt + ω 0 , where the initial angular velocity 2 for one dimensional motion with constant acceleration: θ= and initial angular position are ω 0 and θ 0 , respectively. The relation between the angular and the linear description follows: s = rθ v = v = rω
aTANGENTIAL = r α
aCENTRIPETAL = rω 2
TWO DIMENSIONAL COMPONENT DESCRIPTION Taking the usual x and yaxes—x horizontal and y vertical, with the origin at the center of the circle, and using θ as defined above, we can write the vector components of the position of an object that follows a circular path: x = r cos θ and y = r sin θ We limit ourselves to the special case of zero angular acceleration. Then, θ = ω 0 t + θ 0 and ω = ω 0 , so θ = ωt + θ 0 . We have x = r cos (ωt + θ 0 ) and y = r sin (ωt + θ 0 ) . Then the velocity components are vx = −ωr sin (ωt + θ 0 ) and vy = ωr cos (ωt + θ 0 ) . The acceleration components are ax = −ω 2r cos (ωt + θ 0 ) and ay = −ω 2r sin (ωt + θ 0 ) .

NEWTON’S LAWS MOTION NEWTON’S LAWS OF MOTION
EQUILIBRIUM (FIRST LAW)
If you give an object a position and then arrange things so that it is “left alone,” it keeps the position that you gave it. If you give an object a velocity and then arrange things so that it is left alone, it keeps the velocity (both magnitude and direction) that you gave it. If you give an object an acceleration and then arrange things so that it is left alone, the acceleration drops to zero the moment that you release it. Sir Isaac Newton wrote, “Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a right [straight] line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it.”— Principia, Motte’s 1729 translation into English, revised by Cajori, University of California Press, 1934, p.13. DYNAMICS OF A SINGLE PARTICLE (SECOND LAW)
The second and third laws deal with the way that forces change the velocity of an object. A standard form for the second law is FTOTAL = ma , where a is the acceleration vector, m is the mass of the object, and FTOTAL is the vector sum of all the forces applied to the object. The news in the second law is not that ma is a force—that information is available in the third law. The news is in the word TOTAL and what it means. Forces add like vectors, and the total force is calculated by adding up all of the forces on the object, using the rules developed for adding displacedp , ment vectors. Newton wrote the law in terms of momentum: FTOTAL = dt where p = mv is the momentum. 55 05chap2.pmd 55 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM CHAPTER 2 AN EXAMPLE FOR THE SECOND LAW The figure shows most of the forces that appear in mechanics problems. The second law can be applied separately to the two blocks. The magnitude of the rope force is its tension, FR 2 = T2 and FR1 = T1 . If the pulley is ideal, the two tensions are equal. If not, the difference in the tensions provides the force necessary to move the pulley. For block 2, the y′ component of the second law is T2 − m2 g = m2 a2 y ’ where m2 is the mass of block 2. For block 1, there are more forces. Again, there is a force by the rope and the force of gravity, although now those two do not act along the same line. In addition, there are forces by the ramp. In the figure, two forces by the ramp on block 1 are named. N is the normal force, acting perpendicular to the ramp surface, and FFRICTION is the friction force, acting parallel to the ramp surface. In mechanics problems the magnitudes of those two forces are related in a fairly simple way: FFRICTION = µ k N , where µ k is called the coefficient of kinetic (or sliding) friction. The direction of the friction force is always opposite to the direction of the sliding motion. In the figure, it is assumed that block 1 is sliding down the ramp. www.petersons.com 56 AP Success: Physics B/C 05chap2.pmd 56 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM NEWTON’S LAWS OF MOTION If the block is not sliding, the relation is more complicated. The static friction force adjusts to whatever value is necessary to keep the block at rest. There is an upper limit to how much static friction force the ramp can apply to
MAXIMUM the block. It is calculated using FSTATIC FRICTION = µ s N , where µ s is called the coefficient of static friction. The two components (note that block 1 is using a different, tilted, coordinate system) for the second law in the case of block 1 are: • N − m1g cos θ + 0 = m1a1y = 0 for the y component, since the rope is parallel to the block surface and there is no acceleration of the block up off the ramp. for the x component, assuming • −µ k m1g cos θ + m1g sin θ − T1 = m1a1x
that the block is sliding downhill. When solving problems like this, it is useful to note that, because the rope does not stretch or break, the accelerations of the two blocks have the same magnitude, even though their directions are different. TWO FORCES
Near the surface of the earth, the force of gravity on an object of mass m is Fg = mg , where g is the gravitational field strength. The magnitude of g is 9.8m /sec 2 (the acceleration of a freely falling object) and the direction of g is downward. When a spring is displaced by a distance x from its equilibrium (relaxed) position, it exerts a force in the x direction, FSPRING = − kx . k is the spring constant for the spring. The force always acts to return the spring to its equilibrium position. AP Success: Physics B/C 57 www.petersons.com 05chap2.pmd 57 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM 05chap2.pmd 58 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM Chapter 3
ENERGY, POWER WORK, ENERGY, POWER
WORK AND WORKENERGY THEOREM
Unless otherwise stated, work is done on an object by a force (or combination of forces). In some cases, it is useful to study the work done by a particular force (among other forces) acting on an object, but work on the object will be our primary concern. • For a single constant force acting parallel to the (straightline) motion of an object, the work done on the object is equal to the product of the magnitude of the force and the distance traveled. If the direction of the force is antiparallel (opposite) to the direction of the displacement, the work is negative. The units of work are Newtonmeters. Work is given its own unit, the Joule. 1 Joule = 1 Newtonmeter • • For a constant force F acting on an object that moves in a straight line through a displacement, s , the work is the product W = F ∆s cos θ , where θ is the angle between the two arrows representing the force and the displacement vectors. (We use s rather than r to suggest that the path might be curved in other problems.) If the cosine function is negative for the angle in the problem, the work is negative. • For a force F (not necessarily constant) acting on an object that follows a path (possibly curved) S, the work by the force on the object is the integral W = ∫ F ds cos θ = ∫ F • ds = ∫ ⎡ Fx dx + Fy dy + Fz dz ⎤ ⎣ ⎦
A A A B B B 59 06chap3.pmd 59 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM CHAPTER 3 The integral is a path integral along path S, from point A on the path to point B on the path. ds is an increment along the path, which can be expressed in its x, y, and z components. In general, the work done when the object moves from point A to point B depends on the path, S, that is followed. A different path may be expected to produce different work, even though the beginning and end are the same. Now, we take the force in the definition of work to be the total force on the object. In that case, we can replace the total force using Newton’s second law. The work can be calculated in general. The result is ⎡1 2 ⎤ ⎡1 2 ⎤ ON WNET OBJECT = ⎢ mvFINAL ⎥ − ⎢ mvINITIAL ⎥ ⎣2 ⎦ ⎣2 ⎦ = KEFINAL − KEINITIAL = ∆KE
KE = 12 mv is called the kinetic energy of the object. 2 CONSERVATIVE FORCES AND POTENTIAL ENERGY
•
The formal meaning of conservative forces is if the work done by a particular force is independent of path, then the work done to move an object from A to B is simply a function of the positions, rA and rB . (In calculus terms, the integral is analytic. It may be done once and for all using the most convenient path for calculation. The integral is independent of the path.) This happens when the force is a function of position only. (The most common such force is the force of gravity. Near the surface of the earth, it is a constant function. Even at a great distance from the earth, the gravitational force on an object is a simple function of the distance to the center of the earth.) If we pick a reference point, agreeing to always take A to be at that point, the work to get from the reference point to a point r is simply a function of r . • When an object moves from point A to point B, the work done by a conservative force is exactly the negative of the work it does when the object moves from point B to point A. www.petersons.com 60 AP Success: Physics B/C 06chap3.pmd 60 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM WORK, ENERGY, POWER A potential energy example—If we lift a box from the floor (point A) up to a shelf (point B), the force of gravity does negative work in the process. If the box falls from the shelf to the floor (from B to A), the force of gravity does positive work equal in magnitude to the negative work that it did when the box was on the way up. The negative work done on the way up is a measure of the ability of gravity to do work on the box should it fall. We call that ability to do work potential energy and give it the symbol U. • • For a conservative force, the work done by the force is the negative of the change in the potential energy associated with the force. For gravity near the surface of the earth, U = mgh . This is the equation for the potential energy of an object of mass m, located at a height h above the reference location. For a spring, whose restoring force F is related to its displacement from equilibrium, x , by F = − kx , the potential energy is U SPRING = 12 kx . 2 In general, for a conservative force, F , ∆U AB = U B − U A = − F • ds .
A ∫ B Conversely, the force may be calculated from the potential energy function by differentiation. The x component of the force is Fx = − force. The derivative shown is a partial derivative, meaning that y and z are held constant while it is calculated. ∂U , with similar expressions for the y and z components of the ∂x CONSERVATION OF ENERGY
The workenergy theorem can be rewritten with each force that goes into the total force written separately. The work done by the conservative forces is the negative of their potential energy changes. After rearranging, the work energy theorem takes the form ∆U + ∆KE = WOTHER FORCES . There may be more than one potential energy. In that case, each is represented by a ∆U on the left side. The other forces are the nonconservative forces in the problem. The most common other force is the force of friction. AP Success: Physics B/C 61 www.petersons.com 06chap3.pmd 61 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM CHAPTER 3 If there are no nonconservative forces in the situation, then energy is said to be conserved. We write: ∆U + ∆KE = 0 or
U FINAL + KEFINAL = U INITIAL + KEINITIAL or
EFINAL = E + EINITIAL , where E = U + KE
is called the total energy of the object. POWER
Power is the rate of doing work. Power has the units Joule / sec = Watt . Power can be calculated in two ways: P= dW or dt P = F •v
Positive power means that energy is being added to the object. www.petersons.com 62 AP Success: Physics B/C 06chap3.pmd 62 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM Chapter 4
PAR ARTICLES, SYSTEMS OF PARTICLES, LINEAR MOMENTUM
CENTER OF MASS
The location of the center of mass of a system of N particles is calculated from RCM = ∑rm
i i =1 N N i , where the subscript i refers to the “ith” particle in ∑m
i =1 i the system. The numerator is the sum of all the products ri mi , one for each object. The denominator, the sum of all the masses, is the total mass of the system. For an extended object of density ρ , the sum becomes an integral: RCM = VOLUME ∫ r ρdV ρdV
, where dV is an element of volume. VOLUME ∫ For uniform objects, the center of mass is at the geometric center of the object. When forces are applied to a uniform object, such as a baseball, Newton’s second law correctly calculates the acceleration of the center of mass, using the simple vector sum of the forces for the total force. The velocity and position as functions of time (calculated from that acceleration) are the velocity and position of the center of mass of the object. IMPULSE AND MOMENTUM
When an object is involved in a collision, such as a baseball colliding with a bat, we often know the initial and final velocity of the ball and would like to calculate the force on the ball. If the time duration of the collision is ∆t , we can calculate the average force from F =m a =m −v v ∆v = m FINAL INITIAL . ∆t ∆t 63 07chap4.pmd 63 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM CHAPTER 4 We often do not know the time interval.

(Newton actually used momentum in his version of the second law, written in modern form as FTOTAL = We call the change in momentum of an object involved in a collision the impulse: IMPULSE = ∆p . If the time duration of the collision is known, the average force can be calculated as the impulse divided by the duration. If the duration is known, and the forces are known as a function of time, the impulse may be calculated as the integral,
END TIME START TIME ∫ FTOTAL dt = pFINAL − pINITIAL = IMPULSE . CONSERV CONSERVATION OF LINEAR MOMENTUM IN COLLISIONS:
B EFORE AFTER PSYSTEM = PSYSTEM If the total force on the object is zero, the final momentum is equal to the initial momentum, in agreement with Newton’s first law. In this case, momentum is said to be conserved. If two objects interact, they exert forces on each other, and we can expect the momentum of each object to change. There is an object in such a collision for which momentum is in fact conserved. This new, larger object is the system composed of the two objects together. We can define the momentum of the system as the sum of the individual momenta. In general, PSYSTEM = ∑m v
i =1 N ii for a system of N particles. If the collection of objects experiences no outside forces, then the momentum of the system remains constant, PSYSTEM = PSYSTEM , even though the momentum of some of the individual members of the system might change. Note that the momentum of the system is simply related to the velocity of the
BEFORE AFTER center of mass of the system: PSYSTEM = mSYSTEM vCENTER OF MASS . If momentum is conserved for the system, then the velocity of the center of mass remains constant, even though pieces of the system might go flying off in new directions. www.petersons.com 64 AP Success: Physics B/C 07chap4.pmd 64 8/4/2003, 10:55 AM SYSTEMS OF PARTICLES, LINEAR MOMENTUM Since the momentum is a vector, constant momentum means that each component of the momentum is constant, separately. Depending on the problem, this can mean that conservation of momentum during a collision gives two or even three equations to work with while solving the problem. One question must be asked before applying conservation of momentum, “Is the net force on the system zero?” Unless the answer is yes, the law of conservation of momentum cannot be applied to that system. Often the answer can be changed from no to yes by increasing the number of objects in the system. COLLISIONS THAT CONSERVE BOTH ENERGY AND MOMENTUM
If energy and momentum are both conserved in a collision, the collision is said to be elastic. If energy is not conserved, the collision is inelastic. ONEDIMENSIONAL CASE
In onedimensional elastic collisions between two objects, an explicit pair of equations can be written to relate the initial velocities to the final velocities. The equations are as follows:
⎡m − m ⎤ ⎡ 2m ⎤ ′ 2 2 v1 = ⎢ 1 ⎥ v1 + ⎢ ⎥ v and m1 + m2 ⎦ m1 + m2 ⎦ 2 ⎢ ⎥ ⎢ ⎥ ⎣ ⎣ ⎡ 2m ⎤ ⎡m − m ⎤ ′ 1 1 v2 = ⎢ ⎥ v1 + ⎢ 2 ⎥ v2 ⎢ m1 + m2 ⎥ ⎢ m1 + m2 ⎥ ⎣ ⎦ ⎣ ⎦ In these equations, the subscript 1 is attached to the mass and velocities of object 1, and 2 is attached to the mass and velocities of object 2. The ′ mark on a velocity indicates a velocity after the collision. Unmarked velocities are velocities observed before the collision. Without loss of generality, we may imagine that the plus direction is to the right, and that object 2 is initially to the right of object 1. The equations are useful in examples such as a ball bouncing from a wall or from a tennis racquet. TWODIMENSIONAL CASE
In two dimensions, there are not enough equations to solve for the final velocities in terms of the initial velocities. The conservation laws can be written in terms of momentum. We show the special case in which both objects have the same mass and object 2 is initially at rest.

MOTION ROT CIRCULAR MOTION AND ROTATION
UNIFORM CIRCULAR MOTION
Uniform circular motion is covered in Chapter 1. ANGULAR MOMENTUM AND ITS CONSERVATION POINT PARTICLES
We first define angular momentum for a point object moving on a circle of radius r . Taking the origin to be at the center of the circle, the position vector of the object is r . For circular motion, the velocity vector, v , is perpendicular to r and so is the momentum vector, p = mv . The angular momentum vector, L , is the vector product of the radius vector with the momentum vector: L = r × p . Traditionally, the angular momentum is positive when the rotation is counterclockwise. The vector product is discussed in Chapter 1. This definition works with all motion—not just circular motion. Pick an origin, and the angular momentum of a particle about that origin may be calculated, no matter what the shape of its path. For a system of several particles, the angular momentum of the system is the sum of the angular momenta of each particle. A rigid object may be treated as if it is composed of many small parts. The angular momentum of the rigid body is the sum of the angular momenta of each of its parts. For a rotating rigid body, every point in the body has the same angular velocity, ω . The tangential velocity of a point at position r within the body is v = r ω = rω . The momentum of each bit of the object can be calculated and added to find the angular momentum of the rigid object. 67 08chap5.pmd 67 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 5 Factoring out the constant angular velocity gives L = L = I ω , where I represents the geometrical arrangement of the mass within the rigid body. I is called the moment of inertia for the object. If we ignore the spokes and the thickness of the rim, the moment of inertia for a spinning bicycle wheel is I = mR 2 , where m is the mass of the wheel and R is its radius. (It is assumed that the wheel is spinning in the usual way on its axle.) ABOUT CENTER OF MASS For a rigid body, the moment of inertia about an axis of rotation through the center of mass is given by an integral over the volume of the object, ICM = VOLUME ∫ r 2ρdV . The density, ρ , is generally a function of position, but in most problems is a constant. r is the magnitude of the perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation to the volume element dV . Ignoring the hole in the center, the moment of inertia (about the center of mass) of a compact disk as it is spun in its drive is ICM = the radius of the disk and m is its mass. ABOUT ANOTHER AXIS: THE PARALLEL AXIS THEOREM If the moment of inertia for an object rotating about a particular axis through the center of mass is ICM , the moment of inertia about any axis parallel to the original axis is I = ICM + mD 2 , where D is the perpendicular distance between the two axes. For a rolling compact disc, the axis of rotation is at a point on the rim. The moment of inertia about this axis is
1 mR 2 . R is 2 I= 1 3 mR 2 + mR 2 = mR 2 . 2 2 PARTICLE MOVING IN A CIRCLE The parallel axis theorem shows that the moment of inertia of a small object revolving on the end of a long string is I = mR 2 , where R is the length of the string (and the radius of the circular path). ONSERVATION OF ANGULAR MOMENTUM
If an object rotates with no external influences, its angular momentum remains constant. In this situation, we say that angular momentum is conserved. www.petersons.com 68 AP Success: Physics B/C 08chap5.pmd 68 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CIRCULAR MOTION AND ROTATION If the object changes its moment of inertia by changing its geometrical shape and there are still no external influences, then angular momentum is still conserved. If the object changes its moment of inertia while angular momentum is being conserved, then the angular velocity must change to keep the angular momentum constant: L = I BEFORE ω BEFORE = I AFTERω AFTER . Skaters use this trick to spin faster by pulling in their arms and legs, thereby reducing their moment of inertia. TORQUE AND ROTATIONAL STATICS DEFINITION OF TORQUE The figure shows a box being lifted through height h by a lever. Two different methods are shown. In one case, a large force F1 is applied through a small distance D1 . In the second case, a small force F2 is applied through a large distance D2 . For a massless lever, the work done in each case is mgh, the change in gravitational potential energy of the box of mass m. Thus, the products F1 D1 and F2 D2 must be equal. A little geometry shows that the products R1F1 and R2 F2 must also be equal. AP Success: Physics B/C 69 www.petersons.com 08chap5.pmd 69 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 5 Torque is defined so as to represent this result: τ = rF sin θ , where θ is the angle between the force vector and the vector from the axis of rotation to the point of application of the force. When the
angle is 90 degrees, we have the simple expression τ = rF . Traditionally, a torque that tends to produce counterclockwise motion is taken as a positive torque. The two forces in the figure produce negative torques. Formally, the torque vector is defined as the vector product τ=r ×F .
The second static object must obey two conditions: 1. The total force on the object is zero. 2. The total torque on the object is zero. This condition can also be stated as “the total clockwise torque must equal the total counterclockwise torque.” In static equilibrium, the center of rotation for calculation of torque can be chosen for convenience. Typically, you choose the center of rotation through the point of application of one of the unknown forces on the object. That way, the torque due to that force is zero, and the torque equilibrium equation is simplified. ROTATIONAL KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS
Rotational kinematics is covered in Chapter 1. For rotating objects, the effect of force on acceleration is rewritten in terms of torque and angular acceleration. We restrict consideration to rotations in the xy plane, so that the torques are clockwise (–) or counterclockwise (+). τTOTAL = I α , where τTOTAL is the sum of all the torques applied to the object, + for counterclockwise and – for clockwise torques. α is the angular acceleration, and I is the moment of inertia of the object. The moment of inertia must be calculated for the same axis as the axis used for the torque. Because the object is rotating, the physical axis of rotation must be used; no other can be selected.

If Newton’s second law for an object results in an equation of the form ma = − kx , then the solution is known mathematically: x = A cos(ωt + φ) , where A is the amplitude and ω = 2π = 2 πf is the T angular frequency. In order for the solution to work, it must be true that ω= k. m T is the period of the motion, and f is the frequency of the motion. φ is a “phase angle” that is chosen to match initial conditions. It is often zero. If the cosine function is replaced by a sine function, the new expression is also a solution. Velocity and acceleration in this solution are: v = −ωA sin(ωt + φ)

SPRING EXERTS THE ONLY FORCE If a mass is attached to a horizontal spring and allowed to move on a frictionless horizontal surface, the only horizontal force on the mass is the spring force. We assume that the other end of the spring is fixed, so that the position of the mass, x, is also the displacement of the spring from its equilibrium length.

Near the surface of the earth, r2 M g = a = G 21 . Knowing the radius of the earth and G, this equation r allows us to determine the mass of the earth. www.petersons.com 76 AP Success: Physics B/C 09chap6.pmd 76 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM OSCILLATIONS AND GRAVITATION ORBITS OF PLANETS AND SATELLITES CIRCULAR
A planet orbiting the sun in a circular orbit has centripetal acceleration v2 . Assuming that the gravitational force is the only force acting, r 4π Newton’s second law yields T 2 = r 3 . This was originally derived GM SUN a=
experimentally as Kepler’s third law. If we measure the distance from earth to the sun, and know the period of our orbit, we can calculate the mass of the sun. A satellite orbiting the earth is particularly useful if its orbit speed keeps it above one spot on the earth’s equator—that is, it has a period of revolution equal to 1 day. Kepler’s third law tells us that there is only one value of r that will give such a geostationary orbit. GENERAL
KEPLER’S FIRST LAW The planets orbit in elliptical paths with the sun at one focus of the ellipse. Newton extended this to unbound orbits. All orbits are conic sections: circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas. Parabolas and hyperbolas are the unbound orbits. A visiting body on such a path goes by the sun only once. KEPLER’S SECOND LAW Planets sweep out equal areas in equal times. This is equivalent to the law of conservation of angular momentum for the planets. When the radius is short, the orbit velocity is large, keeping the angular momentum constant. KEPLER’S THIRD LAW The square of the period (of a bound orbit) is proportional to the cube of the semimajor axis of the orbit. (An elliptical orbit has two axes. The narrowest diameter of the ellipse is the minor axis and the largest diameter is the major axis. The semimajor axis is half the largest diameter.)

TEMPERATURE HEAT TEMPERATURE AND HEAT
Just as time is the quantity measured by a clock, temperature is the quantity measured by a thermometer. Just as we intend for a clock to measure how long something takes to happen, we intend a thermometer to measure how hot something is. The MKS thermometer is calibrated in degrees Celsius ( °C ); 0 °C at the temperature of ice water and 100 °C at the temperature of boiling water. Temperature is given the symbol T. The conversion from Celsius to Fahren9 heit is given by T (°F ) = 32°F + T (°C ) . 5 MECHANICAL EQUIVALENT OF HEAT
To raise the temperature of an object, we heat it. There are two traditional ways to heat an object: • Thermally—e.g. place the object in a flame. We measure the heat added in units of the amount of heat (e.g. how long in the flame) that it
takes to raise 1 gram of water by 1 °C . This unit of heat is called a calorie. Heat transfer is given the symbol Q. • Mechanically—e.g., rub the object on a spinning wheel and let friction heat it up. We measure the work required to raise the temperature by measuring the work done by friction. The units here are Joules. Work is given the symbol W.
If we raise the temperature of an object by, say, 1 °C thermally, and then repeat the experiment using the mechanical method, we find that there is no difference in the heated object for the two methods. We cannot look at the object and determine which method was used to heat it. The mechanical work done by friction is equivalent to the heat added thermally. Experimentally, 4.184 Joule = 1 calorie. This is the mechanical equivalent of heat. 81 10chap7.pmd 81 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 7 SPECIFIC HEAT AND LATENT HEAT (INCLUDING CALORIMETRY) SPECIFIC HEAT (Note: this subtopic will not be covered by the Physics B exam.) Identical objects made from different materials require different amounts of heat to increase their temperature by 1 °C . If an object requires a large amount of heat to raise temperature by 1 °C , it is said to have a large heat capacity. The heat capacity of an object is proportional to its mass, m. The heat capacity for 1 gram of a material is called the specific heat for that material. Specific heat is determined experimentally for each different material, and the information is available in tables of data. Heat capacity is given the symbol C, and specific heat is given the symbol c. The heat required to raise the temperature may be calculated from Q = mc∆T = C∆T. The units of c above are either calories Joule or , depending on the g °C g °C units desired for the heat, Q. The specific heat may also be given using kg for the mass unit: calories Joule or . kg °C kg °C
The specific heat may also be given using moles for the measure of the amount of material. This is called the molar specific heat. The units are calories Joule or . mole °C mole °C LATENT HEAT
When a substance reaches a phase transition temperature, the specific heat equation fails. (Two prototype phase transitions are the melting of ice and the boiling of water.) In these phase transitions, heat is added without raising the temperature. The thermal energy is used to convert the low temperature phase (e.g., water) to the high temperature phase (e.g. steam). The amount of heat to convert one gram of material to the high temperature phase is called the latent heat, L. The heat required to convert a mass, m, can be calculated from Q = mL . The units are calories Joule or . As above, the units can vary g g between calories and Joules and between g, kg, and moles. www.petersons.com 82 AP Success: Physics B/C 10chap7.pmd 82 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM TEMPERATURE AND HEAT When a material is cooled to its lower temperature phase, the amount of heat that must be removed to convert a gram of material to the low temperature phase is calculated with the same equation. HEAT TRANSFER AND THERMAL EXPANSION
When two objects are able to exchange heat, heat energy will flow from the hotter to the colder object. If the objects are connected by material such as a solid piece of wire, the mechanism of heat transfer is called conduction. • • No material moves in heat conduction, but heat energy is transferred. For a wire of length L and crosssectional area A, the rate at which heat energy is transferred from the hot to the cold object by conduction is given by H =
dQ EA ( ∆ T ) , where E is called the thermal conductivity of the = dt L material from which the wire is made. • • The rate of heat flow increases with thicker wire and decreases if the wire becomes longer. The rate of heat flow increases if the temperature difference, ∆T , between the two objects is increased. If the objects are connected by a liquid, heat will flow by conduction according to the same formula as for a solid, but it will also flow by convection. • • In convection, material moves and carries heat from a hot region to a cold region. Typically, convection occurs because warmer liquid is less dense and rises, while cool liquid sinks. If a heat source is at the bottom of a pond, fluid will circulate, carrying heat to the surface with warm water, cooling at the surface, and returning cool water to the bottom. Objects also exchange heat energy via electromagnetic waves. This mechanism is called radiation. The rate of energy transfer typically falls as the inverse of the square of the distance between the objects. When the temperature of an object is increased, most objects expand. This effect is called thermal expansion. AP Success: Physics B/C 83 www.petersons.com 10chap7.pmd 83 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 7 • The length, L, increases by an amount ∆L according to the equation ∆L = Lα∆T , where α is called the thermal expansion coefficient, and ∆T is the increase in the temperature of the object. The volume, V, increases by an amount ∆V according to the equation ∆V = V β∆T , where β ≅ 3α is called the volume thermal expansion coefficient, and ∆T is the increase in the temperature of the object. • FLUID MECHANICS
Fluids are defined as materials that cannot sustain a shearing force. Thus, they take on the shape of the container they are surrounded by. In general, all liquids and gasses are considered fluids. HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE
Pressure on a body is the perpendicular force applied to a body per unit area. 2 Or more commonly, P = F/A. The SI units of pressure are N/m or Pascal 2 (Pa), where 1N/m = 1 Pa. Hydrostatic pressure is the pressure exerted on a body due to fluids that are at rest. The increasing pressure exerted on a submarine as it dives to the bottom of the ocean and the decreasing pressure exerted on a balloon as it climbs into the sky are examples of hydrostatic pressure. If we look at the figure above, the total pressure at any point p at any depth h is given by P = P + ρgh
o www.petersons.com 84 AP Success: Physics B/C 10chap7.pmd 84 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM TEMPERATURE AND HEAT where Po is the atmospheric pressure, ρ is the density of the liquid, and g is the acceleration due to gravity. The term ρgh is known as the gauge pressure or the pressure above the local atmospheric pressure and is independent of direction and volume. The gage pressure at the bottom of a lake behind a 50 meter tall dam is the same as that at the bottom of a 50 meter column of water in a small diameter tube. BUOYANCY When an object, usually a solid, is immersed in a fluid, usually a liquid, an upward or buoyant force is produced. (See above) This phenomenon, known as Archimedes’ Principle, states that the buoyant force (Fb) on a submerged body is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. For a solid submerged in water: Fb = m H2O g = PH2O V If the buoyant force is equal to the weight of the body, it floats. If the buoyant force is less than the weight of the body, it sinks. Since the volume of the object submerged is equal to the volume of fluid displaced and g is a constant, generally if the density of the object is less than the fluid it will float in that fluid. AP Success: Physics B/C 85 www.petersons.com 10chap7.pmd 85 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 7 FLUID FLOW CONTINUITY
There are two types of fluid flow. The first is laminar flow, where the flow is smooth. The second is turbulent flow, where numerous eddies are present. Eddies are small whirlpools in the flow stream where the flow is circular rather than linear. For a fluid in laminar flow through a pipe with no leaks or additions, the mass flow rate is a constant: ρ1A1ν1 = ρ2A2ν2. Most liquids can be considered to be incompressible fluids. Thus, ρ1 = ρ2. Therefore, for any two points along the pipe, we have the equation of continuity: A1ν1 = A2ν2. www.petersons.com 86 AP Success: Physics B/C 10chap7.pmd 86 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM TEMPERATURE AND HEAT BERNOULLI’S EQUATION
Daniel Bernoulli, in the early eighteenth century, concluded that if the velocity of a fluid increases, then the pressure decreases and that the converse was true as well. This conclusion is better known as Bernoulli’s principle. Bernoulli’s principle can be used to explain how a wing on an airplane creates lift, allowing the plane to fly. In the diagram below, the particles of air traveling over the top of the wing travel a longer distance than those traveling under the wing. Since the time to travel over/under the wing is the same, the particles traveling over the top of the wing have a larger velocity. This creates a lower pressure over the top of the wing compared to below the wing. The difference between the two pressures is called the lift. For fluids in laminar flow through a pipe, Bernoulli’s equation combines the static pressure in the pipe, the pressure needed to move the fluid through the pipe, and the added pressure resulting from changes in elevation into Bernoulli’s equation:

THEORY THERMODYN YNAMICS KINETIC THEORY AND THERMODYNAMICS
IDEAL GASES
An ideal gas is a dilute gas. Air is a reasonably good ideal gas. In atomic language, the gas is dilute enough that atoms of the gas rarely collide with each other. KINETIC MODEL
In this model, a volume, V, of gas is composed of N atoms that do not interact with each other (except when rectifying a departure from equilibrium). The atoms collide elastically with the walls of the container, producing the observed pressure as the wall recoils from the collisions. Because there is no friction in the collision, there is no component of force parallel to the wall on an atom. Thus, the parallel (to the wall) component of atomic momentum is unchanged by the collision. The wall is far more massive than an atom so that in the elastic collision, the normal component of the atom velocity (the component perpendicular to the wall) is reversed in direction by the collision. (The magnitude of the velocity does not change.) The average force by an atom on the wall is the impulse from one collision divided by the time it takes for the atom to return to the wall after bouncing off the opposite wall. The pressure, P, is calculated as P= 2 N ⎡1 2⎤ mv ⎥ . 3 V ⎢2 ⎣ ⎦ IDEAL GAS LAW
For an ideal gas, it is found experimentally that pressure, volume, and temperature are related by a simple equation of state, PV = nRT , where n is the number of moles of gas in the volume, R is a constant called the ideal gas constant, and T is the absolute temperature in degrees Kelvin. The conversion from Celsius to Kelvin temperature is T ( K ) = T (°C ) + 273K .
T = 0 K is a temperature called absolute zero. The two equations for pressure agree with each other provided that
2 ⎡1 2⎤ N mv ⎥ = nRT . 3 ⎢2 ⎣ ⎦ 89 11chap8.pmd 89 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 8 called the internal energy and given the symbol U. It is verified experimentally that U = ⎡1 ⎤ N ⎢ mv 2 ⎥ is the total kinetic energy of all the molecules in the gas. This is ⎣2 ⎦ 3 nRT , so that kinetic theory, 2 based on the atomic model, is experimentally vindicated. THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS, INCLUDING PROCESSES ON PV DIAGRAMS
The internal energy can be increased by ∆U in two ways—the same two methods used in Chapter 7 to raise the temperature—add heat to the system, and do work on the system. The result is ∆U = Q × W , where the work, W, is the work done on the system. That is the reason for the sign in front of W. Work done by the system removes energy from it. For an ideal gas contained in a cylinder with a movable piston, the work is W = P∆V , where ∆V is the increase in volume, provided that the pressure is constant. Then, the first law is ∆U = Q − P∆V . P∆V is the area under a plot of pressure versus volume for the gas in the system. If the pressure is not constant, then W = P∆V is incorrect, but
W is still the area under that curve. The figure shows some sample paths on the PV diagram for an ideal gas. www.petersons.com 90 AP Success: Physics B/C 11chap8.pmd 90 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM KINETIC THEORY AND THERMODYNAMICS Every point on the graph represents a state of the gas. Each has a value of P and a value of V, and from the ideal gas equation of state, PV = nRT, we can find the temperature, T. When two points on the graph (such as A and A1) are connected by a line, the line represents a process that carries the system from the first state to the second. Because the work done by the system is the area under such a curve, we can use the graph to estimate work done. If the system is carried from A1 to A, the area is the same as the process taking it from A to A1. The difference is in the – signs. When the system moves from A to A1, the volume expands and the system does work, so W is positive. When it moves from A1 to A, the volume contracts: Work is done upon the system. This means that W is negative. A curve labeled T1 is shown. It represents a process that takes place without changing temperature, called an isothermal process. The curve labeled T2 represents another isothermal process, with T2 > T1. If the temperature stays constant, then the internal energy also stays constant since for an ideal gas U = 3 nRT . If ∆T = 0 , the first law requires that 2 If the system moves from B to B1, all the heat input is converted to useful work. If it moves from C1 to C, all the work done on the system is converted to heat. On the upper path, heat must be added to the system to keep the temperature constant. On the lower path, heat must be removed to keep the temperature constant. A curve labeled S1 is shown. This represents a process in which no heat flow is allowed, called an adiabatic process. The first law tells us that 0 = ∆U = Q − W . That is, the heat energy in and the work out add to zero. − ∆U = W —work done by the system is equal to the decrease in internal— energy. Along path B1 to C1, internal energy is completely converted to work. Along path C to B, work is converted to internal energy. HEAT ENGINES
In the PV diagram on page 90, it is possible to select a sequence of paths that does two things: • • Returns the system to its original state, as if nothing had happened to it. Produces net work output. (i.e., the process converts heat to work). One such sequence is called the Carnot cycle, named because it is easy to analyze. It is the cycle B to B1 to C1 to C to B. AP Success: Physics B/C 91 www.petersons.com 11chap8.pmd 91 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 8 On the two adiabatic segments, the net work and the net change in internal energy is zero because the temperature difference is the same (but opposite) for the two segments. This means that the internal energy change is the same (but opposite) for the two segments and so is the work. The (positive) work done on the hotter isothermal path is greater in magnitude than the (negative) work done on the colder isothermal path. The net work for the cycle is the difference of the two isothermal works and is equal to the area inside the graph for the cycle. SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
The simplest statement of the second law of thermodynamics is this: When two isolated objects are in simple thermal contact, heat always flows from the hotter object to the colder one. The law can be restated in terms of a parameter called the entropy of a system. In the same way that internal energy and heat were defined in terms of changes in those quantities, the entropy, S, is defined in terms of how it changes. ∆S = ∆Q Q (Some books use ∆Q for heat flow and some use Q .) = T T In the example from page 90, the entropy of the hot object decreases while the entropy of the cold object increases. Because the cold temperature has smaller T, the entropy increase of the twoobject isolated system shows a net increase. This statement of the second law says that for an isolated system, the entropy always stays the same or increases. As a consequence, when the entropy is as large as possible, the system will stop changing. As an example, consider a system composed of hot, moist air from above the Pacific Ocean and the cold Sierra Nevada Mountains. When the air reaches the mountains, heat flows from the air to the mountains. The cold water vapor condenses and forms ice crystals, the most highly ordered form of water. The entropy of the system increased. The entropy increase drove the process of ice formation. It is sometimes said that when the entropy of a system increases, its disorder increases, so that the natural state of things is chaos. In the atomic model for a gas, there are many different microscopic arrangements of atomic positions and velocities that produce the same macroscopic observations of P, V, and T. The microscopic state can change among many states without changing our observations. The most probable macroscopic state is the one for which a change in microscopic state is least likely to cause an observable change in P, V, or T. Thus, the most stable macroscopic state is the one associated with the greatest number of microscopic states. www.petersons.com 92 AP Success: Physics B/C 11chap8.pmd 92 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM KINETIC THEORY AND THERMODYNAMICS An equally valid statement of the second law is that when the system has a maximum number of microscopic choices, the entropy is maximum and the macroscopic state is stable. In this way, stability is associated with choice rather than disorder. OTHER STATEMENTS OF THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS The most efficient possible engine is the Carnot engine, which works with zero change in entropy. The thermodynamic efficiency of an engine is the ratio of work output to energy input (as heat). It is a number between 0 and 1, with 1 representing complete conversion of heat to work. EFFICIENCY = η = WCYCLE QINPUT WCYCLE T = 1 − LOW . QINPUT THIGH The efficiency of a Carnot engine is ηCARNOT = The temperature ratio is the ratio of the temperatures of the high and the low isotherms of the Carnot cycle. • • No process is possible whose sole outcome is the conversion of heat completely to work. No process is possible whose sole outcome is the transfer of heat from a cold object to a warmer object.

ELECTROST OSTA ELECTROSTATICS
CHARGE, FIELD, AND POTENTIAL CHARGE
The mathematical law that governs the force between two charged objects (We name the objects 1 and 2) has the same form as Newton’s law for gravity. In the case of gravity, the inversesquare law force is proportional to the product of the two masses—it depends on how much material is in each object. The electrostatic force obeys a similar law, except that it depends on how much “electrical” material is in each object. This quantity is called the electric charge of an object. This quantity is given the symbol, q, and its unit is the Coulomb. Charge in this sense is similar to the sense of the “charge” of gunpowder put into an oldfashioned cannon. The more charge, the stronger the force. Objects can become electrically charged without a noticeable change in their mass. (It turns out that adding charge to an object does increase its mass very slightly. In ordinary laboratory situations, electrical force associated with the added charge is billions of times larger than the change in gravitational force caused by the additional mass.) Electrical charge can be moved from one object to another. If two objects are initially neutral and charge is moved from object 1 to object 2, then object 1 acts as if it were also charged. The charge on object 1 is opposite to the charge on object 2. That is, if each charge is brought near a third charge object (3), the electrostatic force on object 2 is equal but opposite to the force by object 3 on object 1. There are only two kinds of charge, which are named “+” and “–” because these sign designations will become useful later. Opposite charges attract and like charges repel. Charge is conserved. An object ordinarily has equal amounts of + and – electrical charge. If some – charge is removed, the object has an excess of + charge and is positively charged. If the – charge that was removed is placed on a second object, that object becomes negatively charged. Charge is not created or destroyed. It is moved about to create all the electrostatic effects that we see. Charge adds. If two positive charges are placed on a piece of metal, the total charge on the metal is just the sum of the two charges. If one charge is negative and one positive, for addition use the – sign on the negative charge, so that the net charge on the metal is the difference between the two charges. 97 12chap9.pmd 97 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 9 FIELD
An electrically charged object modifies the space around it by filling the space with an electrical field. If another charge encounters the electrical field, it feels a force determined by the field. There are many different arrangements of charges that can produce a desired field in a region of space. The force on a visiting charge depends only on the field and not on the details of the charges that created it. The electric field is a vector quantity, having magnitude and direction. The magnitude of the force on a charge, q, is equal to the electric field magnitude, E, multiplied by q. If q is positive, the electric force on it is in the same direction as E. If q is negative, the electric force on it is opposite to the direction of E. Formally, FELECTRIC = qE . The unit of electric field is Newton per Coulomb. The biggest virtue of the electric potential is that it can be easily measured in the laboratory. Charge and field can be measured, but there are no common charge meters or field meters. Potential is measured by a common instrument called a voltmeter. It is commonly said that a voltmeter measures voltage. The proper term is potential difference. The unit of potential and potential difference is the Volt. Like the electric field, the electric potential has a value at every point in space around a charge. The potential is a scalar instead of a vector. If a charge, q, is brought to the place where the potential has value V, then the electrical potential energy of that charge is U ELECTRICAL = qV . Electric potential is electric potential energy per unit charge. One Volt is the same as 1 Joule per Coulomb. If V is constant throughout a region of space, then that region has zero electric field. If V changes rapidly from one place to another, the electric field is strong. The potential difference determines the electric field strength. The electric field points in the direction of decreasing potential. Calculus users, note that the electric potential difference between two points, A and B, is calculated from the electric field by U B − U A = ∆U AB = − ∫ E • ds
A B . This integral is independent of path. The components of the electric field may be calculated from the potential using E x = − of this, the unit of electric field is often given as Volts per meter (equivalent to Newton per Coulomb). ∂U , etc. Because ∂x www.petersons.com 98 AP Success: Physics B/C 12chap9.pmd 98 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM ELECTROSTATICS INSULATORS AND CONDUCTORS
Some materials naturally hold charge in place. Objects that do not permit the charge that they possess to move about are called insulators. If a bit of charge is placed on an insulator, it stays in place. Real materials are not perfect insulators, but some, such as polystyrene and glass, are very good insulators. Some materials allow charges that they possess to move freely. Objects that allow freecharge movement are called conductors. Metals are very good conductors. Some materials become extremely good conductors at low temperature. In this low temperature state they are called superconductors. Superconducting material have properties (such as the Meissner effect) that make them more complex than if they were simply perfect conductors. Because of their conducting ability, the electric field inside a conductor (such as a metal) is zero. If charge is placed on a piece of metal, it arranges itself on the surface of the metal so that the electric field within is zero. All the charge placed on a metal resides on the surface. The inside of a metal is always neutral; the charge inside is zero. (This results from the metal having an equal number of electrons and protons so that the net charge is zero, even though there are many charges present.) COULOMB’S LAW AND FIELD AND POTENTIAL OF POINT CHARGES
The magnitude of the force between two charges, q1 and q2 , separated by a distance, r, is given by Coulomb’s law: FELECTRIC = k where k is approximately 9 × 10 9 Newton m 2 and Coulomb 2 q1q2 1 q1q2 , = 2 4 πε 0 r 2 r ε 0 = 8.85 × 10 −12 Coulomb 2 . Newton m 2 The direction of the force is attractive if the charges are opposite. (If the charges are opposite, one is + and the other is – so that the product q1q2 is negative.) The direction of the force is repulsive if the charges are
the same. (If the charges are the same, then the product q1q2 is positive.) The magnitude of the electric field due to a point charge q, as seen by 1q q . an observer located a distance r from the charge, is E = k 2 = 4 πε 0 r 2 r For a positive point charge, the direction of the electric field is away from the point charge. For a negative point charge, the direction of the electric field is toward the point charge. AP Success: Physics B/C 99 www.petersons.com 12chap9.pmd 99 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM CHAPTER 9 The electric potential of a point charge, q, is given by V =k q 1 q. = r 4 πε 0 r • • • If the charge is positive, then the potential is positive. If the charge is negative, the potential is negative. Note that the potential goes to zero as the position of the observer goes to infinity. The potential energy of a point charge, Q, in the presence of a point charge q is U ELECTRIC = k qQ 1 qQ . = r 4 πε 0 r If the product qQ is negative, the potential energy is negative. If qQ is negative, the pair of charges can lower their energy by moving so that they become closer together. If qQ is positive, the pair of charges lower their energy by moving farther apart. For calculus users: • The radial component of the electric force on a charge Q in the presence of a charge q is (the negative of) the derivative of the potential energy with respect to r. The radial component of the electric field in the presence of a charge q is (the negative of) the derivative of the potential with respect to r. • FIELDS AND POTENTIALS OF OTHER CHARGE DISTRIBUTIONS THE SINGLE MOST USEFUL CHARGE DISTRIBUTION IS THE DIPOLE.
A dipole consists of two charges of equal magnitude, q, and opposite sign, separated by a distance, d. The strength is measured by the dipole moment, p = qd. The direction of the dipole moment vector points from the negative charge toward the positive charge within the dipole charge pair. The dipole electric field points away from the positive charge and toward the negative charge, “wrapping around” in space, from the positive to the negative. www.petersons.com 100 AP Success: Physics B/C 12chap9.pmd 100 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM ELECTROSTATICS The magnitude of the dipole electric field falls more rapidly with distance than the field from a single charge. The electric field strength is proportional to 1 , provided that r is much larger than the separation of the r3 charges, d. The electric potential at an observation point due to a dipole is given by = 1p cos θ , where r is the magnitude of the vector from the center of 4 πε 0 r 2 the dipole to the point of observation. θ is the angle between the vector r and the direction of the dipole moment vector, p .

For a negative sheet of charge, the magnitudes are the same, but the potential increases as the observation point is moved away from the sheet and the electric field points toward the sheet (both above and below the sheet). Another planar charge distribution is the charge on the top surface of a large conducting sheet of metal, such as a sheet of aluminum foil. In order to make the electric field within the metal zero, the charge distributes equally on the top and the bottom of the metal sheet. The electric field is perpendicular to the sheet, pointing away from the sheet for a positively charged sheet. The magnitude of the electric field is • σ . ε0 Note the missing (compared to the field from a sheet of charge) factor of 2 in the denominator. This field is also uniform (independent of position) as long as the point of observation is near to the surface of the metal. • A metal allows no variation in electrical potential throughout itself. A metal enforces a region of constant V. SPHERICAL SYMMETRY
Outside of a spherical distribution of charge: If a distribution of charge has spherical symmetry, the electric field and the potential outside of the distribution is the same as if all the charge were concentrated at the center of the spherical distribution. The effective charge is the total charge in the distribution. For an observation point within a spherically symmetric distribution of charge, the electric field and potential are the same as if they were caused by a charge at the center of the spherical distribution. The magnitude of the effective charge is equal to the charge contained within a sphere of radius r www.petersons.com 102 AP Success: Physics B/C 12chap9.pmd 102 8/4/2003, 10:56 AM ELECTROSTATICS about the center of the distribution, where r is the distance of the observation from the center of the distribution. The electric field and the potential decrease to zero at the center of the distribution. A charge surrounded by a spherical metal shell centered on the charge produces the ordinary point charge field, except within the metal itself. Inside the metal, the field is zero and the potential is constant. The potential outside the metal is the same as for a point charge. The potential just inside the shell is the same as the potential outside. This constant reduction in potential inside is applied to every potential inside. For a charged solid metal sphere, all the charge resides on the spherical surface. The field and potential outside the sphere are the same as for a point charge at the center of the sphere. The effective charge is the net charge on the sphere. Inside the sphere the electric field is zero. The potential is constant and equal to the value just outside the surface of the sphere.

For a small area element, dA , the element of electric flux, dφ , is defined as d φ = E • dA = EdA cos θ , where θ is the angle between E and the area vector, dA . The direction of the area vector is perpendicular (normal) to the area itself. For a given electric field, the flux is greatest when the field is perpendicular to the area (i.e., E is parallel to dA ). For a large surface, the flux through the surface is the integral φ= AREA ∫ dφ = AREA ∫ E • dA = AREA ∫ EdA cos θ . Gauss law refers to a particular kind of flux: the flux through a closed surface. (A closed surface encloses a volume of space.) Gauss’ law states that the flux through the closed surface is proportional to the total charge within the surface: AREA of CLOSED SURFACE ∫ E • dA = qINSIDE , where the direction of dA is ε0 toward the outside of the enclosed volume. For the special case of a point charge at the center of a sphere, the field is constant over the entire area and is radial (perpendicular to the area and parallel to dA ). This makes the integration easy. The result is identical to Coulomb’s law for a point charge. Gauss law is useful in cases such as above, in which E • dA is constant over the entire area. This can happen, for example, if a. b. c. d. E is perpendicular to dA so that the integral is zero. E is zero.

The key to using Gauss’ law is that you get to choose the surface over which the integration is performed. If you choose the surface to match the symmetry of the charge distribution, you can make the integral easy to do. Typically, the integral breaks into parts that are separately easy to do. www.petersons.com 104 AP Success: Physics B/C 12chap9.pmd 104 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM Chapter 10

ELECTROSTATICS WITH CONDUCTORS
The electrostatics of conductors is discussed in Chapter 9. The most important fact to know is that a conducting object has the same potential at every point in the object. Charges and fields rearrange themselves to insure this result. The interior of a conductor is neutral, and the interior electric field is zero. All excess charge resides on the surface of a conducting object. Gauss’ law may be used to show that, if a conducting object has a sharp point on it, the electric field outside the object, near to the point, is large. Charge rearranges itself on the surface to make this so. CAPACITORS
A parallel plate capacitor consists of two parallel metal plates, each of area A, separated by a distance d. Charge is removed from one plate and placed on the other. Each plate has a charge, Q. It may help to visualize the charge on the upper plate as +Q and the charge on the lower plate as –Q. The electric field from each plate has magnitude σ Q , where σ = is 2ε 0 A the charge per unit area of one plate. The electric field due to the positive charge points away from the positive plate, and the electric field due to the negative charge points toward the negative plate. We neglect the “fringing” fields near the edges of the plate. Since the fields from each plate are independent of distance from the plate (as long as the plate dimensions are large compared to the separation), the field between the plates is σ , because the two fields add, pointing from ε0 the positive toward the negative plate. Outside the plates, the fields add to zero. The magnitude of the potential difference between the plates is ∆V = Ed = Qd . This is usually rewritten as Q = ε 0 A ∆V = C ∆V = CV , d ε0 A where C is called the capacitance of the pair of plates, and V refers to the 105 13chap10.pmd 105 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM CHAPTER10 potential difference, V = ∆V . Such a pair of plates is called a capacitor. The unit of capacitance is the Farad. 1 Farad = 1 F = 1 Coulomb . In Volt ordinary circuits, the capacitances used are typically measured in microfarad = µF = 10 −6 F .

The inner sphere has radius R1 and the outer sphere has radius R2. The electric field outside the outer sphere is zero, by Gauss’ law, since the two plates have equal but opposite charges. The electric field between the two spheres is determined by the charge on the inner sphere. This field will point radially toward the center of the spheres, and Gauss’ law tells us that its magnitude will be E = Q 4 πε 0r 2 , where r is the distance of the observation point from the center of the two spheres. The potential difference between the two spheres is the (negative) integral of the electric field: ∆V = − ∫ E • dr =

If two concentric metal cylinders are used as the plates of a capacitor, we may visualize the outer cylinder as the positively charged plate. The inner cylinder has radius R1 and the outer cylinder has radius R2. Both cylinders are very long compared to their radii. The electric field outside the outer cylinder is zero, by Gauss’ law, since the two plates have equal but opposite charges. The electric field between the two cylinders is determined by the charge on the inner cylinder. This field will point radially toward the central axis of the cylinders, and Gauss’ law tells us that its magnitude will be E= Q/L , where L is the length of the cylinders and r is the distance of 2 πε 0r the observation point from the central axis of the two cylinders.

Insulating materials are materials that do not allow free motion of charges placed on them. Insulators do, however, allow motion of charges within the molecules from which they are made. An electric field applied to the material pulls + charges one way and – charges the other. As a result, dipole moments are created whose dipole moment is proportional to the strength of the applied electric field. If the material is placed between the plates of a capacitor, the net effect is a shift of negative charge to the surface of the material nearest the + charged plate and positive charge to the surface nearest the – charged plate. This charge distribution produces an electric field within the material that tends to cancel the applied electric field. Because of this “antielectric field” response, the material is called a dielectric material. Since, for a given charge, Q, on the plates, the dielectric material reduces the electric field, the dielectric material also reduces the potential difference between the two plates. The capacitance of the capacitor is, AP Success: Physics B/C 107 www.petersons.com 13chap10.pmd 107 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM CHAPTER10 therefore, increased.

ELECTRIC CIRCUITS
CURRENT, RESISTANCE, AND POWER CURRENT
The flow of charge from one place to another is called a current. If an observer at a point in space sees charge ∆q move past that point in time ∆t , the current, I, is measured by the rate of that motion: I = called the current. The unit of current is the Ampere, abbreviated Amp or A. dq ∆q is → dt ∆t Amp = Coulomb . Observed currents can ordinarily range from hundreds second of Amps to milliAmps (mA) to microAmps ( µA ). RESISTANCE
In ordinary conductors, some energy from the moving charges in a current is converted to heat, so that energy is extracted from the flow. This characteristic of materials is called electrical resistance. In practice, the current is the same all along the conductor, and the heat energy transfer is reflected in a decrease in electrical potential energy. This, in turn, is reflected in a decrease in electrical potential, V, along the direction of current flow. In many practical situations, the size of the current flow through an object is proportional to the decrease in V across the object. The constant of proportionality is called the resistance, R: ∆VACROSS = ITHROUGH R or, more compactly, V = IR . This relation is called Ohm’s law. The unit of resistance is the Ohm, symbolized by Ω . Clearly, Ω = Volt . Resistances in Ampere ordinary objects range from microOhms ( µΩ ) to MegOhms (MegaOhms) ( M Ω ). The common unit in electrical circuits is the kiloOhm, ( kΩ ). 109 14chap11.pmd 109 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM CHAPTER11 POWER:
The rate at which electrical potential energy is converted to heat is the power, P, dissipated in the object. It is given by P = ITHROUGH ∆VACROSS , or more simply as P = IV . Ohm’s law can be used to show that V2 Joule P = IV = I R = . The unit of power is the Watt: Watt = . R Second
2 STEADYSTATE DIRECT CURRENT CIRCUITS WITH BATTERIES AND RESISTORS ONLY
Most electrical devices require a flow of current and a transfer of energy derived from electrical potential energy. The simplest systems with these two characteristics combine batteries (as a source of electrical potential energy) with objects that obey Ohm’s law (called resistors). A battery may be regarded as a charge pump, moving positive charges from one terminal (the – terminal) to the other (the + terminal) and increasing the electrical potential energy of each charge that it moves. A battery neither creates nor destroys charge. • • • The electrical potential energy per Coulomb of charge moved is the potential difference observed across the terminals of the battery. The potential difference across the terminals is loosely called the Voltage of the battery. If no current is flowing in the battery, the potential difference across the terminals is called the EMF of the battery. The EMF is given the symbol, , to separate it from “passive” potential differences. An EMF can supply power, while passive objects only receive (and transmit) power. ε • When current flows, the battery acts as if it has an internal resistance so that the observed battery voltage is less than the EMF. The difference is the product of the current with the internal resistance. If a resistor is connected across the battery terminals, + charges from the + (high potential energy) terminal flow through the resistor to the low potential energy (–) terminal, losing their potential energy to heat, which remains in the resistor. www.petersons.com 110 AP Success: Physics B/C 14chap11.pmd 110 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM ELECTRIC CIRCUITS More complicated circuits require schematic diagrams, using symbols to present a compact description of the circuit.

An ammeter is inserted to measure the current flowing through both the resistor and the battery. A voltmeter is connected above and below the resistor to measure the potential difference across the resistor. The figures below show two circuits with two resistors. In one circuit the resistors are in parallel, and in the other the resistors are in series. The current through the battery for each combination of resistors can be calculated as though the combination had been replaced by a single “equivalent” resistor.

The two Kirchhoff’s laws are: 1. {∆V1 + ∆V2 + ∆V3 + ...}LOOP = 0 . The sum of the potential differences around a loop must be zero. Some potential differences must be positive and some negative. This law derives from the conservative nature of the electric force and the fact that the electric potential energy at a particular point in the circuit is unique, independent of the path. 2. {I1 + I 2 + I 3 + ...}JUNCTION = 0 . where current into the junction of several wires is positive and current out of the junction is negative.

The strength of the torque that aligns the compass needle is proportional to the magnitude of the magnetic field, B = B . The strength of the magnetic field is measured in units of Tesla, abbreviated T. FORCES ON MOVING CHARGES IN MAGNETIC FIELDS
The force on a charge, q, moving at velocity, v , in a uniform magnetic field, B , is given by F = qv × B . The vector product describes the fact that the force is perpendicular to both the velocity and the magnetic field vectors. For positive charges, the direction of the force is given by the usual vector product right hand rule. For a negative charge, the force is opposite to that for a positive charge. A charge of mass, m, moving perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field (with no other forces present) will accelerate in a direction perpendicular to both the velocity and the field. It will execute circular motion. The radius of the circle is given by R = mv . R is called the radius of the qB cyclotron orbit. If a component of the velocity is parallel to the magnetic field, that component will experience no change. The velocity component parallel to B causes the path of the charge to be a helix, with circular motion in the plane perpendicular to the field. TORQUE AND FORCE ON MAGNETIC DIPOLES IN MAGNETIC FIELDS
The magnetic dipole is not made up of a pair of magnetic charges. Experimentally, the dipole is the most fundamental magnetic entity. No magnetic charge (called the magnetic monopole) has ever been experimentally identified. The dipole is given its inconsistent name because its magnetic field has the same fountainlike shape as the electric dipole field. The dipole moment is given the symbol → . In a uniform magnetic field, a dipole experiences no force. It does experience a torque, which tends to align the dipole moment with the external field. The torque is given by τ = p × B . 117 15chap12.pmd 117 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM CHAPTER12 In a nonuniform magnetic field, the dipole still tends to align parallel to the field.

Ampere’s law also involves an integral over a vector element, ds , but now the element is along a closed loop in the region where the field is to be calculated, rather than being associated with the currents that cause the field. For a closed loop, the integral of the magnetic field along the loop obeys this equation: LOOP ∫ B • ds = µ 0 ITHROUGH . In order to understand the current

ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION (INCLUDING FARADAY’S LAW AND LENZ’S LAW)
Faraday’s law is stated in two steps. Refer to the loop and magnetic field shown below. The magnetic flux through a loop of area, A, is defined as the product φ = AB cos θ . The angle, θ , is the angle between the magnetic field and the direction perpendicular (normal) to the loop area. (Calculus users, note that the formal definition of flux is φ = AREA OF LOOP ∫ B • dA .) The experiment shows that, for a loop of wire as shown, a potential difference is produced when the magnetic flux through the loop changes. If the flux stops changing, the potential drops to zero. Since this potential is not passive (it is capable of delivering power), it is called an EMF, following the practice for a battery. The EMF is said to be induced by a changing flux and is simply ε = (rate of change of) φ . 121 16chap13.pmd 121 8/4/2003, 10:57 AM CHAPTER13 • If a plot of flux versus time makes a straight line, the rate of change of flux (and the induced EMF) is simply the slope of the straight line. • • Calculus users, note that the EMF is given by sign is associated with Lenz’s law; see below. ε = (−) d φ .

LOOP minus sign now makes sense: Placing the fingers of the right hand along the direction of ds , the right thumb points in the direction of dA . Lenz’s law shows how to determine which terminal of the loop will be positive. • The law depends on the current that flows in the wire to produce the EMF. The positive terminal will be made positive by current flowing toward it. This current is called the induced current. The induced current creates, as if flows, its own magnetic field near the loop. This field adds with the original magnetic field, but it is useful to think of it separately. Lenz’s law states that the induced magnetic field acts to oppose the change in flux of the original field. • • The flux that induces the EMF can change in several interesting ways: • • • The original magnetic field changes magnitude. This is the basis of the electrical transformer. The original magnetic field changes direction. This is used in some magnetic navigation sensors. The loop changes direction.

If the sides of the loop are square, we can imagine the loop growing so that one straight side moves perpendicular to its length. The work done by the EMF created this way is the same as would be calculated using the force calculated from F = qv × B . Together, Faraday’s law and Lenz’s law take the place of the simple force equation above, for the magnetic force on a moving charge. • INDUCTANCE (INCLUDING LR AND LC CIRCUITS)
A coil of wire with N turns (loops) of cross sectional area, A, experiences a flux φ = NAB when a uniform field, B, is applied parallel to the axis of the coil. If the magnetic field is changing with time, an EMF is induced in each loop. The net EMF from one end of the coil to the other is the sum of the individual EMF’s. dφ dB . = NA dt COIL dt It is possible that the magnetic field above is caused by the same coil that is producing the induced EMF. To make this happen, a changing current must be passed through the coil. The magnetic field is proportional to the current flowing through the coil. The rate of change of flux is proportional to the rate of change of current. In this case, the induced EMF is proportional to the rate of change of the current, i, in the coil. The constant of proportionality is called the induc ε= tance, L: di ε = L dt . The unit of inductance is the Henry, Henry = Volt second .

When a coil is used in a circuit whose current can vary, the potential difference across the coil is a passive response to the changing current. Because the coil is passive and not a source of energy, the potential difference is represented by ∆V or V , just as for a resistor or a capacitor. Lenz’s law is used to determine the sense of the voltage. The potential across the coil acts in a sense to oppose the change in current: If the current is increasing, the coil potential acts to prevent the increase.

An EMF is induced in the coil that opposes the tendency of the current to fall. Kirchhoff’s loop law for this circuit is – L equation is i = i0 e − t / τ , where is τ = di − iR = 0 . The solution to this dt i0 = ε is the initial current and the decay time R ε is the final R L . If at t = 0 the switch is thrown the other way, connecting to the R −t / τ battery, the current is given by i = i∞ (1 − e ) , where i∞ = steady state current. LC CIRCUITS

WAVE MOTION WAVE MOTION
PROPERTIES OF TRAVELING WAVES
Any disturbance that maintains its shape and travels at a velocity, v, is a traveling wave. The waves most commonly described are sinusoidal, having the form shown in the figure below. The horizontal line in the figure represents the equilibrium position of the medium. It may be the undisturbed surface of a lake. The wave displaces up and down from equilibrium by equal amounts. The maximum vertical displacement is the amplitude, A. The wave travels from left to right with velocity, v. A single point in the medium, represented by a square dot, moves up and down as the wave passes. Each time a crest passes, the point reaches its highest displacement. The motion of the point is periodic. It repeats after a time, T, and is called the period of the wave. The separation of the wave crests is called the wavelength, symbolized by the Greek letter, λ . 131 17chap14.pmd 131 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER14 During one period, T, a wave crest advances a distance equal to λ . The speed of the wave crest (and the rest of the wave) is v = where f = λ = fλ, T 1 is the frequency in Hertz (Hz) of the wave (and of the vertical T
⎛ ⎝ x t⎞ − 2π ⎟ λ T⎠ oscillation of the square point in the figure). One Hz is one cycle per second. The mathematical form of the wave is y = A sin ⎜ 2 π Other forms for this equation include : ⎛ ⎞ • y = A cos ⎜ 2 π λ − 2 π T ⎟ . ⎝ ⎠ x t • y = A cos ( kx − ωt ) , where k = ω= 2π is the angular frequency in radians per second. T 2π is called the wave number, and λ • y = A cos ( kx − 2 πft ) If the wave travels to the left, then all the wave form equations above have the – sign replaced with a + sign. At a given value of x (such as x = 0), the equation for y is the equation of simple harmonic motion. Traveling waves can carry energy from one place to another. The wave from some source can do work on a distant object, even though no material moves from the source to the distant object. For a traveling sinusoidal wave, each bit of material executes simple harmonic motion. Each bit reaches its maximum displacement (amplitude) at a slightly different time from neighboring bits. As the wave crest travels to the right, a particular bit reaches maximum just a little later than the bit on its left, and just a little before the bit on its right. PROPERTIES OF STANDING WAVES
The most commonly considered standing waves involve simple harmonic motion of an extended object, such as a taut string. In the following figure, imagine that the taut string is (somehow) free at the left end and fixed at the right end. www.petersons.com 132 AP Success: Physics B/C 17chap14.pmd 132 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM WAVE MOTION In contrast to the traveling wave, each bit of material reaches a maximum distance from equilibrium at the same time. The solid line shows the distortion of the string at one time, and the dashed line shows the distortion of the string period, bits that had been displaced upward are now displaced downward and vice versa. The right end of the string is tied to a block and cannot move. The left end of the string is free to move. Some points on the string do not move at all. Those points are located in the figure above as the points where the dashed line crosses the solid line. These immobile points are called nodes. Halfway between neighboring nodes are located the antinodes, points at which the string experiences its largest displacements. The distance between maxima at any particular instant is equal to the wavelength of the standing wave. The distance between antinodes (and nodes) is only 1 period later. After half a 2 1 wavelength. 2 3 wavelengths 4 Note that for a string to exhibit a standing wave, its length must be specially related to the wavelength. Note that the string is 2 long. If both ends of the string were fixed, the string would have to be a whole number of halfwavelengths long. The same is true if both ends were free. If one end is fixed and one end is free, the string must be an odd number of quarterwavelengths long to exhibit a string wave. AP Success: Physics B/C 133 www.petersons.com 17chap14.pmd 133 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER14 The traveling wave equation v = f λ continues to hold for the standing wave. Because the boundaries allow only oscillations whose wavelengths “fit” the length of the string, most wavelengths are forbidden. This means that most oscillation frequencies, given by f = v are forbidden. λ • For both ends fixed (or both free), the allowed frequencies of a string of length L are fn = n v , where n is an integer. L/2 • If one end is fixed and one free, the allowed frequencies are fn = (2 n − 1) v . This formula ensures that only odd multiples of a L/4 quarter wavelength are allowed to stand on the string. The speed of the wave for the string is v = T , where T is now the tension µ in the string and µ is its mass per unit length. The standing wave may be represented in equation form: • y = A sin(ωt ) cos(kx ) • y = A cos(ωt )sin(kx ) • or Use the boundary conditions to select the most convenient form. For example, if the displacement is fixed at x = 0, then the second equation is convenient. DOPPLER EFFECT
The Doppler effect is exemplified by the change in pitch of sound waves, caused either by motion of the source of the sound or motion of the detector of the sound. Velocities of both source and detector are measured relative to the air. (We may imagine that the air is always stationary.) • • In this discussion, velocities are positive if they are in the same direction as the direction of sound travel. A detector has positive velocity if it is moving away from the source. www.petersons.com 134 AP Success: Physics B/C 17chap14.pmd 134 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM WAVE MOTION • A source has positive velocity if it is moving toward the detector. The source emits a steady tone of frequency f0 = 1 . T0 is the T0 period of the sound source oscillation. If the source is moving toward the detector with velocity vS , then the separation between wave crests is reduced by the motion of the source. The wavelength becomes λ = λ 0 ⎜ 1 − ⎛ ⎝ vS ⎞ , where λ 0 is the wavelength ob⎠ c⎟ served when the source is stationary in the air, and c is speed of sound in the air. Because of the shorter wavelength, the detector observes a higher frequency, given by f = f0 1 . vS 1− c If the detector is moving away from the source with velocity vD , the time between arrivals of crests is increased because the detector is “running away.” The observed period becomes T = T0 1 , and the observed vD 1− c frequency becomes f = f0 ⎜ 1 − ⎝ ⎛ vD ⎞ . ⎠ c⎟ Allowing for motion of both source and detector, we can write v⎞ ⎛ 1− D ⎜ c ⎟ = f ⎛ c − vD ⎞ . f = f0 ⎜ 0⎜ v⎟ ⎝ c − vS ⎟ ⎠ ⎜ 1− S ⎟ ⎝ c⎠
There are, unfortunately, many ways to express this relation. In the version above, remember that positive velocities are in the direction of sound travel. This means that if the detector runs away from the source, the pitch goes down. If the source runs toward the detector, the pitch goes up. SUPERPOSITION
When two waves arrive at the same place at the same time, they combine in the simplest possible way: their displacements simply add. This kind of combination is called superposition. AP Success: Physics B/C 135 www.petersons.com 17chap14.pmd 135 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER14 Since displacements can be positive or negative, the result of addition may be either smaller or larger than either of the original wave displacements. • If the amplitude of a wave is decreased when a second wave is added to it, the superposition is said to be destructive. In this case, the second wave is said to interfere with the first. It is said that the waves exhibit destructive interference. If the amplitude of a wave is increased when a second wave is added to it, the superposition is said to be constructive. It is said (somewhat incongruously) that the waves exhibit constructive interference. When two waves combine over an extended region of space, it is possible to have constructive interference in one place and destructive interference in another. The overall behavior is said to produce an interference pattern. • • When two sound waves of the same frequency but from different loudspeakers arrive at the ear, the sound may be loud or soft, depending on the path taken by the two waves. • If the paths are the same length, the two waves arrive with crests at the same time. They are said to arrive in phase. The same is true if the path lengths differ by a whole number of wavelengths. If the path lengths differ by an odd number of halfwavelengths, the interference is destructive. The sound is not loud. Moving the speakers or moving the ear changes the paths to the ear for the two waves, and one can hear changes from loud to soft and back to loud as the motion proceeds. • • When two sound waves from the same speaker, but with different frequencies, arrive at the ear, they are sometimes in phase and sometimes “out of phase,” interfering destructively. The ear hears a flutter or beat in the sound. The frequency of the perceived beat is equal to the difference in frequency between the two sound waves. Standing waves on a string may be generated mathematically by the superposition of two identical waves traveling in opposite directions. The trigonometric identities for sums of angles show that sin(ωt − kx ) + sin(ωt + kx ) = 2 sin(ωt )cos(kx ) and − sin(ωt − kx ) + sin(ωt + kx ) = 2 cos(ωt )sin( kx ) . The form that matches the boundary conditions at x = 0 is the form to be chosen. www.petersons.com 136 AP Success: Physics B/C 17chap14.pmd 136 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM Chapter 15

INTERFERENCE AND DIFFRACTION
• • •
Light is a wave with very high frequency, very high speed, and very short wavelengths. In practice, it is difficult to demonstrate beats between light waves of two different frequencies. In practice, the wavelike properties that are demonstrated all have to do with waves that have identical frequencies but arrive following different paths to the detector.
meters . second • • • The speed of light in a vacuum is c = 3 × 108 Light frequencies are on the order of f = 6 × 1016 Hz. Light wavelengths are on the order of λ = 5 × 10 −7 meters = 500 nm. 137 18chap15.pmd 137 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER15 • • • This interference pattern is called a twoslit diffraction pattern. The same equation holds for the bright directions when the two slits are replaced by multiple slits, all separated by a distance, d. A multipleslit device is called a diffraction grating. When light is passed through the grating, the bright light is concentrated much more at the exact angle of maximum intensity. If the beam of light passes through a single slit, light radiating from different parts of the slit will also interfere constructively and destructively. Referring to the figure below, destructive interference produces dark spots at an angle given by nλ = w sin θ DARK , where w is the width of the slit. When a beam of light strikes a pair of parallel surfaces, each of which is partially reflecting, the reflected beam is the superposition of the results of multiple reflections. • The reflection is inverted if it is caused by a surface of higher index of refraction. (The inversion of light reflected by a metal is an extreme case of this.) For reflection from a thin film of material, we may expect the reflection at one surface of the film to be inverted while the other is not. Consider only two reflections: the first reflection from the front surface and the first reflection from the back surface. • www.petersons.com 138 AP Success: Physics B/C 18chap15.pmd 138 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM PHYSICAL OPTICS • If the excess path of the back surface reflection were a whole number of wavelengths, we would initially expect a bright reflection at that wavelength. Because one surface inverts the reflected light and the other does not, we see instead no reflection when the excess path is a whole number of wavelengths. For an oil film, the light is bright if twice the thickness of the film is an odd number of half wavelengths:

Ordinary light does not come with a single wavelength. It is not monochromatic. • Light from an incandescent lamp bulb has a continuous distribution of wavelengths. The visible portion of this distribution covers about 800 nm to about 400nm. Each wavelength produces its own color sensation in the human eye. 800 nm is deep red, and 400 is violet, or deep blue. In between, the wavelengths track with the colors of the rainbow. For example, light of wavelength 560 nm is green. Light from gas lamps (such as mercury vapor or low pressure sodium vapor) has a more restricted sampling of wavelengths. • • Light is an electromagnetic wave. The range of wavelengths produced by a light source is called the spectrum of the source. • • The electromagnetic spectrum extends to wavelengths much longer and much shorter than its visible portion. Radio waves have wavelengths as long as many meters. Radar wavelengths are measured in centimeters, and infrared radiation is measured in micrometers. AP Success: Physics B/C 139 www.petersons.com 18chap15.pmd 139 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER15 • Ultraviolet light, Xrays, and gamma rays have wavelengths much shorter than visible light. Reconsider the equation developed for a grating and a monochromatic light source of wavelength λ : nλ = d sin θ BRIGHT . • • Imagine that we consider only n = 1 and allow multiple wavelengths in our light source. Each wavelength will be bright at its own angle, as determined by λ = d sin θ BRIGHT . • The grating disperses the light, showing how much intensity is present at each wavelength. For incandescent lamps and for sunlight, the grating reproduces the same separation of colors (wavelengths) as a natural rainbow. www.petersons.com 140 AP Success: Physics B/C 18chap15.pmd 140 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM Chapter 16
GEOMETRIC OPTICS GEOMETRIC
REFLECTION AND REFRACTION
When a light wave encounters a good conductor, its electromagnetic character determines the outcome. • • The conductor does not allow electric fields within it and adjusts its mobile charges to make the internal field zero. This charge motion radiates a reflected light wave at the same frequency. Experiment and theory (Huygens’ Principle) agree that when a light beam strikes a flat surface, the reflected light • • reverses the component of velocity that is perpendicular (“normal”) to the surface and does not change the component of velocity that is parallel to the surface. This result is summarized by saying that, “The angle of incidence equals the angle of reflection.” Traditionally, the angles are measured from the light beam to a line perpendicular to the surface. That line is called the “normal” to the surface. When a light beam encounters a dielectric medium, its electromagnetic character determines the outcome. The dipoles in the dielectric medium move in response to the electric fields, reducing the electric field within the medium. Some of the light is reflected because of the charge motion. As with a metal, the angle of reflection equals the angle of incidence. Some of the light continues to propagate through the dielectric medium. The frequency is the same as in a vacuum, but the speed of the wave is reduced. Experiment and theory (Huygens’ Principle) agree that the light changes direction when it enters the new medium. Rays that are bent because they move from one medium to another, are said to be refracted. Light rays in the medium with higher index of refraction (lower light speed) are oriented more toward the normal. 141 19chap16.pmd 141 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER16 Snell’s law describes the way that the direction changes: When light passes from medium 1 to medium 2, the angles to the normal (theta) of the ray in each medium are related by n1 sin θ1 = n2 sin θ 2 . n is called the index of refraction of the medium. The index of refraction is the ratio of the speed of light in the vacuum to the speed of light in the medium. It is 1 for a vacuum, and greater than 1 (typically less than 2) for all material mediums. The slower velocity in a dielectric medium makes the light wavelength shorter, for the same frequency. The short wavelength is calculated by dividing the vacuum wavelength by the index of refraction. When an observer looks down into a fish tank at a rock on the bottom, refraction bends the rays coming from the water to the air (and thence the eye) so that the rock looks closer to the surface than it really is. MIRRORS
Mirrors are used to create optical images of real objects. For a flat mirror, the image is the same size as the object and is located behind the surface, a distance equal to the distance from the object to the front of the mirror. • • This image is said to be virtual because no light actually passes through its location. This result may be proved using the law of reflection (angle of incidence equals angle of reflection) and ray diagrams. CONCAVE SPHERICAL MIRRORS
The behavior of a concave spherical mirror can be deduced from the way that it reflects a beam of parallel light rays. The rays are directed along the optical axis of the mirror. As long as the diameter of the mirror is small compared to its radius of curvature, the parallel rays are all focused to a point, the focal point. For a spherical mirror, the focal point is half way between the mirror and its center of curvature. The distance from the mirror to the focal point is called the focal length, and given the symbol, f. When light from a real object strikes the curved mirror, • • some of the rays arrive parallel to the optic axis and are reflected through the focal point. some arrive by passing through the focus and are reflected parallel to the optic axis. www.petersons.com 142 AP Success: Physics B/C 19chap16.pmd 142 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM GEOMETRIC OPTICS • the rays cross at the location of the image formed by the mirror. The location of the image is calculated from 1 1 1 + = , where DO DI f DO is the distance from the object to the mirror, DI is the distance from the
image to the mirror, and f is the focal length. The height of the image, hI, is given by hI = − ⎜ ⎛ DI ⎞ hO , where hO is the height of the object. The minus ⎝ DO ⎟ ⎠ sign indicates that if both Ds are positive, the image is inverted. If DO < f , DI will be negative. This indicates that the image is virtual, located behind
the mirror. The formula for the height continues to work, indicating that now the image is erect. CONVEX SPHERICAL MIRRORS
The behavior of a convex spherical mirror can be deduced from the way that it reflects a beam of parallel light rays. The rays are directed along the optical axis of the mirror. As long as the diameter of the mirror is small compared to its radius of curvature, the parallel rays reflect as if from a focal point located behind the mirror. This mirror is said to have a virtual focus. As before, the focal length is half the radius of curvature, but this time it is negative. When light from a real object strikes the curved mirror, • • some of the rays arrive parallel to the optic axis and are reflected as if they originated at the virtual focal point. some of the rays arrive along a line that would cross the focal point. They are reflected before they reach the virtual focus and travel away parallel to the optic axis. the rays do not cross. However, lines extended back through the mirror surface do cross at the location of the image formed by the mirror. the image is virtual. No light passes through it. • • AP Success: Physics B/C 143 www.petersons.com 19chap16.pmd 143 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER16 The location of the image is calculated as before, using 1 1 1 + =, DO DI f where DO is the distance from the object to the mirror, DI is the distance from the image to the mirror, and f is the focal length. • DO • is positive in our applications. f is negative for the convex mirror. is negative for our applications.

The minus sign indicates that if both Ds are positive, the image is inverted. In practice, for the convex mirror, the sign is plus and the image is erect. If the object moves to make DO < f , no particular change occurs for the convex mirror. LENSES
When glass or plastic presents a curved surface to a beam of parallel light rays, the rays strike the surface at a variety of angles. As a result, they are refracted at a variety of angles. If the surface is convex, the rays, bent toward the local normal, converge on a focus within the material. In general, the light exits the other side of the glass before reaching a focus. The curvature of the second glass surface modifies the location of the focus. • • The twosurface object is a lens. The lensmaker’s formula for the focal length of the lens is ⎛1 1 1⎞ = ( n − 1) ⎜ − ⎟ . f ⎝ R1 R2 ⎠ • R1 is the radius of curvature of the first surface (the one the light hits first).

R2 is positive if that surface bulges towards the incoming light. The focal length is the same on both sides of the lens. If the focal length of the lens is positive, it is called a converging lens. It focuses parallel rays to a real focal point. If the focal length is negative, the lens is called a diverging lens. Parallel light passing into the lens diverges as though it came from a point on the “incoming” side of the lens. This lens has a virtual focus.

DO DI f ⎝ DO ⎠ When the object sends light through the lens to form a real image on the other side, both the object distance and the image distance are positive. This real image will be inverted. As before, negative image distance means the image is virtual and erect. This means that the image is on the same side of the lens as the object. A lens used as a magnifier is placed so that the object is just inside the focal length. The lens produces a virtual erect image farther from the lens than the object. This allows the viewer to hold the object closer to the eye, making the image on the retina larger. The view of the object is magnified. LENS COMBINATIONS
The magnifier can also be used to magnify a real image. • If the real image is formed by a long focal length lens from a distant object, the lens combination is a telescope. The purpose of the long focal length lens is to gather light to make a bright image for the magnifier to work on. If the real image is formed by a short focal length lens from a nearby object, the combination is called a microscope. • If two lenses are placed sidebyside, the combination forms an image as if it were a single lens with an effective focal length given by 1 1 1 . + = f1 f2 fEFFECTIVE AP Success: Physics B/C 145 www.petersons.com 19chap16.pmd 145 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER16 • Because the inverses of the focal lengths appear in lens combinations, a new quantity called the power of the lens is defined as 1 . f • If the focal length is 1 meter, the lens is said to have a power of 1 diopter.

ATOMIC PHYSICS AND QUANTUM EFFECTS ATOMIC QU
ALPHA PARTICLE SCATTERING AND THE RUTHERFORD MODEL
Alpha particles are emitted by radioactive materials. They consist of two neutrons and two protons bound together. The nucleus of ordinary helium is an alpha particle. The charge is positive because there are two protons. The mass of an alpha particle is about 7,000 times that of an electron. In the nineteenth century, the atomic model of matter was not universally accepted. The conservative model of matter was that it was more or less uniformly distributed in space, even on a microscopic scale. There was very little experimental evidence to the contrary. Geiger and Marsden placed a gold foil in a beam of alpha particles. From the reduction in the beam intensity they could estimate the strength of the interaction between the alpha particles and the gold. They also determined what happened to the alpha particles that were removed from the beam by the gold. Some just stopped, but others were scattered out of the beam, leaving the gold in different directions. The surprising result was that some alpha particles bounced straight back. The only tenable explanation was that those alpha particles had collided with a particle in the gold and that the particle was much more massive than the alpha particle. Rutherford derived a formula for the distribution of scattered alpha particles, based on a model in which the positive charges in matter are concentrated in atomic nuclei. The formula fit the observations and gave the first strong evidence in favor of the Rutherford model of the atom. As the model developed, the atom was pictured like a tiny solar system, with the positive nucleus at the center and the small electrons orbiting like planets. In this “solar system,” the attractive force was the electrical force rather than the gravitational force. PHOTONS AND THE PHOTOELECTRIC EFFECT
The photoelectric effect was known in the nineteenth century but not understood. Two electrodes are enclosed in a vacuum with leads leaving the walls of the vacuum chamber. Light is shined onto one of the electrodes. It is observed that this electrode becomes positive while the other becomes negative. When the two electrodes are connected, a current is observed to flow between them. 149 20chap17.pmd 149 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER17 Electrons leave the illuminated electrode, migrate to the other electrode, and then return “home” via the external wire connecting the two electrodes. The energy of the ejected electrons was found not to depend on the intensity of the light. The current was proportional to the light intensity. That is, more intense light liberated more electrons. Einstein used an idea of Planck to propose a particle model for light: In the model, light consists of photons. • • • Each photon has an energy E = hf, where f is the frequency of the light, and h is a new constant called Planck’s constant. Since h = 6.6 × 10–34 Joule sec and f ≅ 6 × 1014 Hz, the energy of a single –19 photon is very small, on the order of 4 × 10 Joule. This energy is often reexpressed in units of electron volts, eV: 1eV = 1.6 × 10–19 Joule. Then, a photon has an energy of a few electron volts. Photons have zero mass and travel at the speed of light. Einstein predicted that the energy of the ejected electrons would be proportional to the light frequency, with slope equal to Planck’s constant. The prediction was verified by Millikan, and Einstein won the Nobel prize for this work. The prediction may be summarized with an equation for the kinetic energy of the “photoelectron” (the electron ejected from the electrode by an incoming photon): KE = hf − W , where W is called the work function. W is the work that must be done to unbind the electron from its metallic home. At low frequencies, the photon is not energetic enough to do this work, and no electrons are ejected. • • • THE BOHR MODEL AND ENERGY LEVELS
The diffraction gratings discussed in Chapter 15, Physical Optics, disperse light according to wavelength so that the experimenter can observe what wavelengths are present in light from any source. Low pressure electric discharge gas lamps, such as those made from neon, mercury, and sodium, are found to lack many of the wavelengths that make up the “rainbow” spectrum of an incandescent lamp. www.petersons.com 150 AP Success: Physics B/C 20chap17.pmd 150 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM ATOMIC PHYSICS AND QUANTUM EFFECTS Gas discharge lamps emit only a countable number of discrete wavelengths. The Bohr model of the atom was invented to account for this extreme limitation on allowed wavelengths. Einstein’s photons showed that if only a few wavelengths are emitted, then the photons that are emitted come in only a few different energies. Recall that EPHOTON = hf = h Conservation of energy and work by Planck on photon emission led to the idea that the electrons on an atom must exist only in a limited number of energy states. c . λ • • • When the electron emits a photon, it lowers its energy by moving from one state to a state of lower energy. If there are only a few such states, then only a few energies (and thus wavelengths) are allowed to the emitted photons. The energy of the atomic electrons is said to be quantized, meaning that electron energies must be chosen from a discrete list of values. Bohr adopted the idea that the angular momentum, L, of an orbiting electron is quantized: L = n of this quantization to a single electron orbiting a single proton (the hydrogen atom) leads to allowed energy states given by En = − E1 me 4 = 2 , where m is the mass of the electron. 2 22 (8 ) n ε 0 h n h = n , where n is an integer. Application 2π () () • • • For hydrogen, the ground state energy E1 is E1 = –13.6eV = –2.2 × 10–18 Joule. In this equation, if the electron energy is greater than zero, it is free—not bound to the proton. Energy differences between states with n = 1,2,3, etc., give excellent agreement with the photon energies measured for the light emitted by hydrogen. These allowed states had specific allowed circular orbit radii, given by rn = − (n ) h ε = (n ) a . πme

Evidence has accumulated over the past 100 years that an electron can act as a wave or as a particle, depending on the experiment in which it participates. Electron diffraction and interference have been observed, and yet a television picture tube successfully treats electrons as particles. One connection between the wave character and the particle character is in the relation of momentum to wavelength: λ = h . In this equation, p Planck’s constant (divided by 2 π ) and the momentum, p = mv are well defined. The wavelength, λ , when used in diffraction formulas, correctly predicts the pattern of diffraction of a beam of electrons. The wavelength is called the DeBroglie wavelength, after the man who proposed its existence. Another connection is the uncertainty principle. It is concerned with measurements of more than one property of a particle. The most straightforward example is the measurement of the momentum and position of a particle. In one dimension, the rule is ∆p∆x ≥ . • ∆p • and ∆x are to be interpreted as the uncertainties in the measurement of momentum and position, repectively. The rule says that if the experiment is designed to give a very small uncertainty in momentum, then the position cannot be well known. Another way to say this is that it takes a large distance to obtain a very accurate measurement of momentum. Classical physics did not have this limitation on accuracy. The only limit was thought to be the ability of the experimenter. Experiments have shown that the uncertainty principle is correct. • • DeBroglie found that he could derive the entire Bohr quantization scheme by requiring that an electron orbit contain an integral number of electron wavelengths along its circumference. This was the earliest strong indication that the wave character of particles was a real property. www.petersons.com 152 AP Success: Physics B/C 20chap17.pmd 152 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM Chapter 18
NUCLEAR PHYSICS
RADIOACTIVITY AND HALFLIFE
Some chemical substances, called radioactive, emit particles and transmute into different chemical substances. The process takes place one atom at a time. The transmutation of the nucleus is by far more energetic than the concurrent change in the electron orbits. The process is called nuclear decay, because the new atoms (the daughter nuclei) have smaller nuclei than the original atoms (the parent nuclei). Often, the emitted particles are also nuclei. In this case, each decay can have more than one daughter particle. If the two daughter particles are of roughly the same size, the process is called fission. Experimentally, it is impossible to predict when a particular nucleus will decay. It is only possible to give a probability that it will decay in the next second. If a large number of nuclei are present, this makes it possible to predict how many will decay in the next second. That number is called the rate of decay of the sample of radioactive material. The decay rate is proportional to the number of radioactive parent particles in the sample. RATE = dN = −λt , where N is the number of parent nuclei in the sample. dt λ is called the decay constant. It is different for each different kind of parent nucleus. This rate can be integrated to give N as a function of time: N = N 0 e − λt . The time for N to fall to half of its beginning value is called the halflife, T1 / 2 = ln(2) . λ NUCLEAR REACTIONS
In a nuclear reaction, the transmutation of a nucleus is caused by its interaction with another particle. Two numbers are important in nuclear reactions: • The number of protons determines the chemical species of the nucleus by determining the number of electrons on the atom. This number can change in a nuclear reaction. It is called the atomic number and is given the symbol Z. 153 21chap18.pmd 153 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM CHAPTER18 The mass number, symbolized by A, is the sum of the number of neutrons and the number of protons. The mass number is conserved in nuclear reactions. That is, the number of neutrons and the number of protons present may change, but the sum of all nucleons (neutrons plus protons) does not change. These numbers are given A in the form Z X for a chemical element named X. With the exception of hydrogen, A is always greater than Z. For a given chemical species, there is only one value for Z, but several values for A are allowed. This is because the number of neutrons can vary without changing species. • • • Typically, the number of neutrons is equal to or greater than Z. Nuclei with the same Z but different A are called isotopes. The chemical character of isotopes of the same species is the same for all isotopes, but the masses are all different. Some isotopes are stable, while others are not. When the nucleus of an unstable isotope decays, it may or may not decay to a new species, with new (lower) Z. • In nuclear reactions, charge is conserved in the following sense: the total charge of all the protons and electrons remains constant. In some reactions, a proton and an electron may disappear, while a neutron appears. The total charge remains constant. When a parent nucleus decays, it releases energy and decays to a system which has lower energy than the parent. • • In a very simple example, the nucleus emits a gamma ray and settles into a more strongly bound state. It is found experimentally that, after the decay and emission of energy, the total mass of the system (including all the masses of all decay products) is smaller. Calculation shows that the lost mass, ∆m , is related to the energy released by the decay by the famous Einstein equation, E = ( ∆m ) c 2 .
RELEASED • • Similar changes in mass occur when a chemical reaction occurs, but the change is very small because the energy released is much smaller than the nuclear energy released. www.petersons.com 154 AP Success: Physics B/C 21chap18.pmd 154 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM NUCLEAR PHYSICS The most commercial nuclear reaction is the uranium fission reaction: U absorbs a neutron and then (typically) breaks into two daughters plus neutrons. 235 92 • • • • Many daughters are possible, but they are of similar size. When the fragments are nearly equal, the process is called fission, because it resembles the fission of a biological cell. Most of the energy released appears as kinetic energy of the fragments, and eventually as heat, as they are brought to rest. Then neutrons are then available for capture by other 92 U nuclei. If this happens, the next uranium nucleus can repeat the process, as part of a chain reaction.
235 Typically, daughter nuclei are also radioactive, and a chain of radio active decays ensues, lasting until it ends in a nonradioactive nucleus. The most strongly bound, lowest energy nuclei are in the neighborhood of iron on the periodic table. This fact means that lighter nuclei can release energy by fusing together and making themselves into nuclei nearer in mass to iron. Once again, the Einstein equation relates the mass lost to the energy released. Fusion has been used for bombs but not for commercial power generation.

A wire is suspended from the ceiling and wrapped around a cylinder of 2 cm diameter that is free to rotate about its axis, as shown above. A small mass m provides some nominal tension. The length of wire between the ceiling and cylinder is 180 cm. Attached to the cylinder is a mirror that rotates with the cylinder if the wire stretches. A horizontal laser beam reflects from the mirror and strikes the wall, 3 m away, 40 cm above the beam height. The wire is now heated with an air gun by 40 K. The spot on the wall moves up as the wire expands by 5 cm. (a) From the movement of the laser spot, determine the coefficient of thermal expansion for the wire. You should keep angles in radians for this problem.

Tilting up causes the angular momentum vector of the propeller (which is pointing at the pilot) to have a downward component and a smaller component pointing toward the pilot. The plane will conserve angular momentum by tilting counterclockwise and turning left, creating new angular momentum vectors corresponding to motion of the main body of the plane opposite to the changes in the propeller’s angular momentum vector. 2. The correct answer is (A).

The correct answer is (A). The bullet and the soldier fall at the same rate, so it will hit the soldier unless he hits the ground before it arrives. If he hits the ground first, it will hit the dirt and never get there. That will be in a little over a second, so it better be a low branch! 7. The correct answer is (E). Its displacement vectors (wind and air speed) form the legs of a 345 right triangle. The only sufficient wind speed is choice (E). 8. The correct answer is (A). Nothing will happen. The center of mass of the top two bricks is directly over the edge of the bottom brick. 9. The correct answer is (D). Centripetal force is the force that keeps the piece of rope moving in a circle and always points to the center of circular motion. 10. The correct answer is (C). A negative coefficient of friction would cause the creation of a force in the direction of motion, causing propulsion. The bottom brick would slide if the force provided by the friction can overcome its static friction with the table. Its normal force on the table is the weight of both bricks, so the negative coefficient of friction must be twice as large as its static coefficient of friction to allow this to happen. 11. The correct answer is (B). The increase in mass is the only explanation for the slow second acceleration. The new mass must be 1,100 kg to double the mass of the initial system (truck mass + driver mass), and if choice (D) were correct they would also be accelerating to 100 kph in less than 10 seconds on the second acceleration test. 12. The correct answer is (C). This is just an example of Newton’s third law. 13. The correct answer is (C). The normal force is µk (mg) = mg. Since F = ma, mg = ma, so a = g. The time to stop is 0.5 second, so the distance is 1.25 m. 14. The correct answer is (D). Total energy is conserved, choices (A), (B), and (C), and any other point in the swing has the same energy. 15. The correct answer is (A). The engine could be off, so the engine does no work. The speed and distance are superfluous because it’s not going up hill or working against friction on a “smooth” track. 16. The correct answer is (D). The elevator may exert a constant force of 9,900 N on the cable, but the distance it travels per second is increasing with time, so the power increases. Each second it gets faster and has to do more and more work against gravity and its own acceleration.

The second projectile has half its initial velocity vector in the horizontal direction, so it has 1 of its initial kinetic energy at the top of the arc. The rest ( 3 of the initial energy) has been converted into potential 4 3 energy (mgh), and so it has attained a height of that of the first projectile. 4 18. The correct answer is (B). The momentum of the second piece is equal to the initial momentum, but it has half the mass and, therefore, twice the velocity. The initial trip to the top of the arc is 0.5 km and takes the same time as the fall back to ground. In that time, the second piece will cover twice the distance (1 km) that it had originally, landing 1.5 km away. 19. The correct answer is (D). Static equilibrium is established if the torques balance, so for every 100 g added to the scale, the torque is 1.5 cm (100 g) 2 10 m/s = 1,500 Ncm. Then mass m must move 1 cm away, adding a 2 torque of 1(m) 10 m/s = 1,500 Ncm. m = 150 g satisfies this equation and provides the necessary torque in the opposite direction. 20. The correct answer is (D). The runner’s feet must supply a force, so all the answers with kg are out. To maintain constant velocity, the force provided by the feet along the road’s surface must equal the force of gravity on the runner along the plane of the hill, or 4 m ( g ) sin (30 ) = mg = 400 N . 2 21. The correct answer is (B). The situation is like bouncing the ball off the truck at speed v. It would approach and recede from the truck at speed v because of the elastic collision. Since it would be receding from the truck at v and the truck would still essentially be moving at speed v, its total velocity would be 2 v. 22. The correct answer is (D). If you selected choices (A) or (B) you made the mistake of leaving the mass in grams and not converting to kilograms. Because the rocket will have moved up against gravity, it will be just under 30 m/s. (0.1 seconds is too short for the rocket to slow down significantly.) 23. The correct answer is (D). Conservation of energy in an elastic collision requires the angular kinetic energy to go somewhere, and that means into translation. The exact final speed depends on the exact angular momentum and initial speeds. www.petersons.com 182 AP Success: Physics B/C 22Bexam1.pmd 182 8/4/2003, 10:58 AM ANSWERS AND EXPLANATIONS 24.

They could collide at an angle due to the orbit shift of the first satellite, but to be in circular orbit at the same height above the earth they must be moving at the same speed in their orbits. 26.

The drawing with a sudden kink showing the same would be a strange twostep process and not a single expansion. 35. The correct answer is (D). The work extracted by a heat engine is the area enclosed by its cycle diagram on the PV plane. The area of the rectangle is 2 3 20 N/m (0.1 m ), or 2 J. Attention to units helps with this type of problem; the answer must be in N⋅m (or Joules), so the quantities must be multiplied in some way. 36. The correct answer is (E).

The voltage decreases. The electric field from the plates of charge does not change, but the distance between the plates decreases. Much like a ball falling toward the earth, the potential (mgh) decreases. In this case, the electrical potential decreases when the attracting objects (oppositely charged plates) approach one another. 43. The correct answer is (D). The charge density increases (same charge in half the area), doubling the field. The distance stays the same, so the voltage between the two plates doubles. V2 110 2 v = P.

The capacitor will fully charge and current will stop flowing. That means no potential drop across the resistor, so the entire potential difference is across the capacitor. 47. The correct answer is (E). The capacitor will again charge, and current will flow through the resistor. But they are connected in parallel, so the entire 100 V potential change will be across each element. 48. The correct answer is (C). No current flows through the circuit in question 42, as explained in the previous answer, so no power is used. The power in the second circuit is given by P = V 2 , or 500 W. R 49. The correct answer is (D). The antenna will receive radio waves with wavelengths of approximately 1 m. The speed of light, c, is 300,000,000 m/s. That means that it travels 1 meter 3 * 108 times per second, giving it a frequency of 300 MHz. 50. The correct answer is (D). By Lenz’s law, the direction of the field created by the new current must oppose the change in the magnetic flux through the opening. That means a clockwise current, creating a force on the bar and moving the bar to the left. As that loop closes, the flux will be decreasing, causing a counterclockwise current that will bring the bar to a stop.

Conservation of energy leaves us an energy of 700*0.4 eV, or 280 eV given up by the electron and converted into photons. This is closest to 270 eV, but that means creating energy from nowhere. It is more likely 300 V, with the remaining 20 eV of energy lost heating the phosphor atoms. 52. The correct answer is (A). By applying two versions of the righthand rule to first find the direction of the magnetic field of wire 1 on wire 2, and then finding the direction of the force on wire 2 by that field, we can see that it will be toward wire 1. 53.

Eddy currents in the car in response to the changes in the magnetic field (picking it up and dropping it) will cause the car to heat up. The response field it creates would tend to stick it to the magnet longer, so choice (B) is wrong. 56. The correct answer is (C). The spring will get a current through it (Faraday’s law), and since the wires conduct the current in parallel directions, they will tend to attract, compressing the spring. 57. The correct answer is (B). Superimposing the waves tells us exactly how far up or down the individual pieces of string end up. 58. The correct answer is (D).

The correct answer is (A). The photons of twice the wavelength have half the frequency and therefore half the energy. They don’t have enough energy to overcome the work function of the metal and eject electrons, no matter how many of them there are. 66. The correct answer is (E). The radius of an electron’s orbit in a Bohr orbit is proportional to n 2 , where n is the state number it is in. The energy of the orbit is inversely proportional to the radius. The first transition would be from infinite n to an energy level 1 that of the ground state. The second 4

ground state from infinity, or 3 times the first transition. 67. The correct answer is (A). Because it contains a few valence electrons that are free to move throughout the metal, the solid filament can emit a continuous spectrum. The individual atoms still have specific energy levels—all atoms do. 68. The correct answer is (B).

After the heating, the angle is 0.149 radians. The angle change should be twice the angle change of the mirror (the beam reflecting from the mirror will change both its incident and reflected angles), or 0.008 radians. From the formula for the arc length of a circle, s = rθ, we know that 0.008 cm of wire were wrapped around the cylinder. That means that

K (b) This is somewhat easier. 0.008 cm of wire is wrapped around the cylinder, so the mass is less by 2 g/m(0.00008 m). The mass density is less by 0.00016 g = 0.000088 g/m , so the new mass density is 1.8 m 1.999911 g/m. The fundamental frequency of a wave on a stretched string of length L is f = ⎜ L ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ .

Blue light has a higher frequency (hence, higher energy photons) than red light. In the photoelectric effect, higher frequency light causes the emission of more energetic electrons. 66. The correct answer is (B). Some of the incident photon’s energy is given up to release the electron, so the scatter photon has a lower energy. The energy of a photon is proportional to its frequency. 67. The correct answer is (D). The smallest increase in energy allowed for the atom in its lowest state is E2 − E1 = Eo ⎜ − ⎛ 1 ⎞ ⎛ 3 ⎞ .

Mech1 For a ball to roll on a flat surface without slipping or skidding, the velocity of the ball’s center of mass v and its angular velocity ω must satisfy the equation v = rω (for motion on a straight path). Mech2 Consider a uniform, solid ball of mass M and radius R that rests on a table. If one applies a horizontal force to the ball at a point on its surface, as shown in the above figure, the ball will gain some forward momentum and it will also begin rotating. Whether the ball rotates backward or forward depends upon how far above or below center the ball is struck. Calculate the height above (below) center at which point a horizontal force will cause the ball to immediately roll without slipping. Calculate this height in terms of the ball’s radius and its mass. Consider a small block of mass M resting at the top of a large fixed frictionless sphere of radius R. If you perturb the block slightly, it will begin to slide down the surface of the sphere and the block will eventually lose contact with the sphere.

The vertical velocity component is positive when Jack throws the ball. When the ball falls to the same height above the ground again, the vertical component has the same magnitude but the opposite sign. When it falls below the starting height, the velocity component is even more negative. 6. The correct answer is (D). The horizontal component increases as the block accelerates down the incline. The force of gravity is vertical. The only force with a horizontal component is that of the incline. AP Success: Physics B/C 317 www.petersons.com 27Cexam4.pmd 317 8/4/2003, 11:01 AM PHYSICS C – TEST 2 7. The correct answer is (E). The velocity is the derivative of the position: v(t) = 3t2 + 6t. Setting this to zero and solving for t results in t = 0 or t= – 2. The acceleration is the second derivative: a(t) = 6t + 6. Evaluating at –2 and 0 results in a( –2) = –6 and a(0) = 6. 8. The correct answer is (C). The net force is zero since there is no acceleration. The only forces acting on the mass are gravity and the (vertical) normal force of the surface. 9. The correct answer is (B). The net force on the mass is zero, so the acceleration is also zero, which implies that the velocity is constant. 10. The correct answer is (E). The velocity is v(t) = 2t + 5; the acceleration is constant, a = 2. 11. The correct answer is (A). Momentum is always conserved in the absence of external forces. Kinetic energy is only conserved in elastic collisions. 12. The correct answer is (D). The minimum y component of each velocity for each mass is 0. If both vectors are parallel to y, the y components are each v. So the total y component of velocity is between 0 and 2v. Since the final momentum is zero, the y component of velocity of the third mass must be equal and opposite to the sum of the y components of the other two masses. 13. The correct answer is (B). The cube is in equilibrium because the net force and net torque is zero. The equilibrium is unstable because a slight perturbation results in a torque that will result in further departure from equilibrium. 14. The correct answer is (C). In the absence of friction, the energy required to move an object in a gravitational field only depends on the initial and final positions. 15. The correct answer is (E). The gravitational potential energy is converted into kinetic energy, which is then converted to elastic potential. Hence, the ⎛ 1⎞ elastic energy is equal to gravitational energy: mgh = ⎜ ⎟ kx 2 , which ⎝ 2⎠

The block returns to its initial position. 18. The correct answer is (D). The center of mass of Donny and Marie remains fixed. If the origin is defined as being at the center of mass, and x is Donny’s position, then 75x = m( 1 – x) or m = 75 x , where m is Marie’s mass. The boat moves (1 − x ) 1 1 4 m , so x – (1 – x) = . Solving for x results in x = . Inserting this in 7 7 7
⎛ 4⎞ the previous equation results in m = ⎜ ⎟ 75 = 100kg . ⎝ 3⎠ 19. The correct answer is (E). The acceleration is constant and equal to 10 N . 5kg Thus, the velocity is 2t. The work is the time integral of the force times the velocity, 10*2t. The kinetic energy of the block is equal to this work, 40 J, added to the initial kinetic energy, 10 J, which is 50 J. 20. The correct answer is (D). The impulse is equal to the change in momentum, (0.1 kg)(6 m/s). Divide by the time interval, 0.01 s. 21. The correct answer is (A). Momentum is conserved in the collision: (5 kg)(2 m/s) = (5 kg + 15 kg)v, so v = 0.5 m/s. 22. The correct answer is (C). The centripetal force is equal to the force of gravity: mv 2 = Mg .

The rider feels weightless when the centripetal acceleration is equal to the acceleration of gravity: v2 = g or v = R gR . 26. The correct answer is (C). The angular acceleration is the torque divided 4N − m
2 by the moment of inertia: ⎡0.2 kg ( 0.5m ) ⎤ ⎣ ⎦ angular speed is the product of the acceleration and time: 40 rad/s2 2 s = 80 rad/s. This is added to the initial speed of 30 rad/s. 27. The correct answer is (D). The center of mass of the books must remain on the left of the table’s edge. If the edge of the table is taken as the origin, the center mass of the books is given by
−L ⎛ L⎞ 2L +⎜x − ⎟ = x − . The condi6⎝ 2⎠ 3 = 40 rad s 2 . This change in the tion for equilibrium is that the location of the center of mass is less than zero: x <
2L . 3 28. The correct answer is (A). The moment of inertia is smallest for the direction with the smallest dimension, H. The angular acceleration is inversely proportional to the moment of inertia, so it is greatest for the axis with the smallest moment. 29. The correct answer is (E).

w h (d) The solid is in equilibrium when F = 0. Hence, tan θ = Mech3 (a) The kinetic energy is conserved since no work is done on the mass by the string. The speed of the mass remains constant, so v0 = r (t )ω(t ) and ω (t ) = v0 r (t ) . (b) Each time the mass makes one revolution, the length of the string decreases by 2 πa . Hence, dr = − a ω (t ) . dt v = −a 0 r (t ) www.petersons.com 328 AP Success: Physics B/C 27Cexam4.pmd 328 8/4/2003, 11:01 AM ANSWERS AND EXPLANATIONS (c) Separate variables and integrate: r ′ dr ′ = − av0 dt ′ r0 2 ∫ r ′dr ′ = − ∫ av0 dt ′

(d) L (t ) = mv0r (t ) . The angular momentum decreases with time. There is a torque on the mass about an axis through the center of the post. SECTION II—ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETISM
E1 (a) The electric force is in the + y direction, while the magnetic force is in – y direction, so they can cancel each other. According to the Lorentz force law, F = q(E + vxB). Hence, if v = to zero. (b) If the velocity has a smaller magnitude, the electric force will be larger and the particle will spiral, drifting toward the + y direction. You get half of the credit for y drift and half for spiral. (c) Fx = vy B Fy = QE − vx B (d) The initial motion of the charge is in + y. As it begins to move, it curves to the right. Each part is worth half credit.

(b) Since the current is flowing in opposite directions, the magnetic force is repulsive. (c) When the small loop is in the xy plane, the magnetic flux is not changing, so the induced emf is zero. (d) After passing through the xy plane, the direction of the current reverses, so it is in the same direction as the current in the large loop. E3 (a) The initial current is greatest through the lefthand resistor, zero through the capacitor, and equal in the other resistor and inductor. (b) The voltage across the lefthand resistor plus the voltage across the inductor and resistor equals V. The capacitor’s voltage is equal to that of the righthand resistor plus the inductor. (c) There is equal current in the two resistors and the inductor. The current in the capacitor is zero. The voltage across the two resistors and the capacitor V . There is zero voltage across the inductor. 2 (d) Only resistors dissipate power. The current in the lefthand resistor is greater, so the power dissipation is also greater.
