Physics 1A- 9 AM class Quiz # 4 Nov. 21, 2008 Prof. Jose Onuchic MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) Geosynchronous satellites orbit the Earth at a distance of 42 000 km from the Earth's center. Their angular velocity at this height is the same as the rotation of the Earth, so they appear stationary at certain locations in the sky. What is the force acting on a 1 500-kg satellite at this height? Hint: recall that force is related to centripetal acceleration A) 457 N B) 85 N C) 510 N D) 333 N E) 404 N 2) A 0.30-m-radius automobile tire accelerates from rest at a constant 2.0 rad/s 2 . What is the centripetal acceleration of a point on the outer edge of the tire after 5.0 s? Figure 1 An 8 g bullet is shot into a 4.0 kg block, at rest on a frictionless horizontal surface. The bullet remains lodged in the block. The block moves into a spring and compresses it by 3.0 cm. The force constant of the spring is 1500 N/m.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
