Unformatted text preview: Part 1: Circle the correct answer. Each is worth 5 points. 1. Two cars of the same mass start at the same speed. Car A undergoes a dramatic
crash with several bounces, some spinning and a little rolling. Car B simply hits a
wall head on. Both stop completely. Which car experiences the greater average
force? ' / ""T'Hx Car A LCaLB/X) Both are the same 2. Which car from #1 experiences the greater magnitude of impulse? __————._.‘

the ball at the same height, what do I have to do to keep my center of gravity in the same place as before? cm L M

A. Lean forwards.
CB) Lean backwards.
C. Nothing. 4. I drop a bowling ball from 1.0 m above a concrete ﬂoor, and it bounces to a
height of 0.13 m. The bowling ball’s collision with the ﬂoor is elastic in physics TRUE FALSE\ 5. A puppy jumps into my lap while I’m in an office chair, and we start to roll. If terms. the system is “the puppy, me, and the chair,” which of the following quantities is
definitely not conserved? "Mechanical Energy.

1 7. The centripetal force requiredto make a 1.0 kg mass go in a 1.0 m radius circle
at 1.0 m/s is 1.0 N. Ifa string is used to try to do this, but the tension in the string
is 1.5 N, what happens? @The mass moves to a smaller radius. B. The mass moves to a larger radius. 'C. The tangential component of velocity increases.
D. The tangential component of velocity decreases. 8. If I doubled the mass of ‘the Earth and the radius of the Earth, the acceleration of
gravity on the surface would stay the same. TRUE 9. “Choking up” on a baseball bat by holding it farther from‘the end lets y0u sWing

0.65kg and a radius of 0.34m. If a force of 25N applied perpendicular to the radius gives it an angular acceleration of 166 rad/s2, what is B? _ T'x. _ . 12. I’m sliding along ice (very low friction) at 1.1 m/s and mass 122 kg including
