ANSWER ANY TEN OF THE FOLLOWINGTWELVE QUESTIONS. ‘1.) 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 xaxis. 3 makes an angle of 30° and 0 makes an
angle of 130“ with the positive xaxis.' a) Write each vector in unitvector 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 .

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

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.

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).
