A stone is thrown vertically upward with an initial velocity of 20 mls from a 60 m high building. a) Find the maximum height. above the ground, reached by the stone. b) Find the time the stone spends in the air. (From‘ the top'of the building to the ground). c) Find the velocity of the stone just before impact with the ground. d) Find the total displacement of the stone and the total distance traveled by the stone. 2.) a) Three vectors A, B and C are each 10 units long. A lies along the x-axis. 3 makes an angle of 30° and 0 makes an angle of 130“ with the positive x-axis.' a) Write each vector in unit-vector notation. b) Find a vectorD such thatA+ B + c + D =0 c) Use graphical methods to find vector D. Given the two vectors P = 3 1+ 1.7? and Q = s i — 4.23 . Find the angle between P and Q using the scalar (dot) product of the two vectors. 3.) I ,_ _ _ A cannon fires a ball with an initial velocity of 50 mils at 53° elevation. The cannonball hits a hillside target at a height Of 60m as it is on its way down. Find: a) The maximum height reached by the projectile. 60*" b) The distance from the cannon to the hillside. c) The acceleration of the cannonball just before it hits the target. i 4.)

Find the tension in all three ropes. 0'9“ A 0.2 kg and afira kg box are placed. one behind the other, as shown. . One cord is attaching the 0.2 kg box to the 0.8 kg box. a second cord from the 0.8 kg box passes over a frictionless pulley and a 0.4 kg block hangs from the free end of this cord. The coefficient of friction is pk = 0.10 between all surfaces, a) Draw free body diagrams for each of the three blocks b) Find the acceleration of all three blocks and the tension in the two ropes. T.)

A 4 kg block, initially at rest, slides down a 5.0 long inclined plane. The plane makes an angle of 37° with the horizontal and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the plane is pk = 0.25. a) On a carefully drawn free body diagram show all forces acting on the block and calculate the work done by each force during the displacement of 5.0 m. --b) - Using the work—energy theorem calculate the speed of the block at the bottom of the incline. ~— 10.) ‘ I ' _ ill? 11.) A 0.3 kg brick is dropped from a height of 8 m. The brick stops as it hits the ground. a) what is the impulse exerted by the ground on the brick? b) If it takes 1.3 ms from the time the brick first touches the ground until it stops completely. what is the average force exerted on the brick by the ground? A roller coaster cart of mass 50.0 kg is accelerated from rest by a compressed spring (point ‘A'). The track is frictionless and the spring. a spring constant k = 2000 Nlm is initially compressed by 2.00 m. If the heights of the various sections of the track are as shown find the following: What is the speed of the cart at point B while still at ground level? By how much did the potential energy of the cart change, as it moved fron B to 6? Assuming that the cart stays on the track everywhere, what is its speed at points 0 and at point D? l A 1500 kg cartraveling north at 70 kmlh collides at an intersection. with a 2000 kg car traveling west at 55 kmlh. The two cars stick to each other. a) What is the total momentum of the sytem before the collision? b) Express this total momentum in x and y components. c) Find the magnitude and the direction of the velocity of the wreckage just after the collision. 12.) The engine of an automobile accelerates eta constant rate from 200 revlmin to 3000 rev/min in 7.0 seconds, after which it runs at a constant speed. a) Find the angular velocity and the angular acceleration at t = 0 (just after the acceleration begins) and att 1: 10's (just before the acceleration ends).
