Patel, Kinal – Homework 4 – Due: Sep 14 2007, 7:00 pm – Inst: D Weathers 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10 points A particle undergoes three consecutive dis- placements: ~ d 1 = d 1 x ~ i + d 1 y ~ j + d 1 z ~ k ~ d 2 = d 2 x ~ i + d 2 y ~ j + d 2 z ~ k ~ d 3 = d 3 x ~ i + d 3 y ~ j , where d 1 x = 1 . 39 cm , d 1 y = 2 . 19 cm , d 1 z = - 1 . 94 cm , d 2 x = 3 cm , d 2 y = - 1 . 58 cm , d 2 z = - 4 . 51 cm , d 3 x = - 2 . 37 cm , d 3 y = 2 . 29 cm . Find the x component of the resultant dis- placement. Correct answer: 2 . 02 cm. Explanation: The resultant vector ~ R is given by ~ R = ~ d 1 + ~ d 2 + ~ d 3 = ( d 1 x + d 2 x + d 3 x ) ~ i + ( d 1 y + d 2 y + d 3 y ) ~ j + ( d 1 z + d 2 z + d 3 z ) ~ k = [(1 . 39 cm) + (3 cm) + ( - 2 . 37 cm)] ~ i + [(2 . 19 cm) + ( - 1 . 58 cm) + (2 . 29 cm)] ~ j + [( - 1 . 94 cm) + ( - 4 . 51 cm) + (0 cm)] ~ k = [2 . 02 cm] ~ i + [2 . 9 cm] ~ j + [ - 6 . 45 cm] ~ k so the answer to this part of the problem is R x = 2 . 02 cm . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10 points Find the magnitude of the resultant displace- ment. Correct answer: 7 . 35479 cm. Explanation: The magnitude of ~ R is R = q R 2 x + R 2 y + R 2 z = q (2 . 02 cm) 2 + (2 . 9 cm) 2 + ( - 6 . 45 cm) 2 = 7 . 35479 cm . keywords: 003 (part 1 of 2) 10 points Consider four vectors ~ F 1 , ~ F 2 , ~ F 3 , and ~ F 4 , where their magnitudes are F 1 = 57 N, F 2 = 39 N, F 3 = 30 N, and F 4 = 40 N. Let θ 1 = 150 , θ 2 = - 150 , θ 3 = 37 , and θ 4 = - 57 , measured from the positive x axis with the counter-clockwise angular direction as positive. What is the magnitude of the resultant vec- tor ~ F , where ~ F = ~ F 1 + ~ F 2 + ~ F 3 + ~ F 4 ? Correct answer: 37 . 9533 N. Explanation: Basic Concepts: Vector components fig- ure1 Solution: The x components of the forces ~ F 1 , ~ F 2 , and ~ F 3 are F 1 x = F 1 cos(150 ) = - 49 . 3635 N F 2 x = F 2 cos( - 150 ) = - 33 . 775 N F 3 x = F 3 cos(37 ) = 23 . 9591 N F 4 x = F 4 cos( - 57 ) = 21 . 7855 N .

    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.
