Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A wheel starts from rest at t = 0 and rotates with a constant angular acceleration about a fixed axis. It completes the first revolution in 6 . 2 s. How long after t = 0 will the wheel com plete the second revolution? Correct answer: 8 . 76812 s. Explanation: In the conventional notation θ = s r ω = d θ dt = v r α = d ω dt = a t r , we use “ θ θ = ω t + 1 2 α t 2 ” at time t 1 to find the acceleration. The wheel starts from rest ( ω = 0) θ 1 = 0 + 1 2 α t 2 1 ⇒ α = 2 θ 1 t 2 1 = 0 . 326909 rad / s 2 . If we use the same equation again at time t 2 θ 2 = 0 + 1 2 α t 2 2 ⇒ t 2 = r 2 θ 2 α = s 2 θ 2 t 2 1 2 θ 1 = r θ 2 θ 1 t 1 = √ 2 t 1 , because we know θ 2 = 2 θ 1 (two revolutions). Notice that the result does not depend on how many revolutions the wheel went through, only the relative number of revolutions θ 2 θ 1 . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A bicycle is turned upside down while its owner repairs a flat tire. A friend spins the other wheel of radius r = 0 . 4 m and observes that drops of water fly off tangentially. She measures the height reached by drops moving vertically. A drop that breaks loose from the tire on one turn rises h 1 = 59 . 2 cm above the tangent point. A drop that breaks loose on the next turn rises h 2 = 54 . 3 cm above the tangent point. The height to which the drops rise decreases because the angular speed of the wheel decreases. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Assume: The angular deceleration is con stant. h . 4 m radius ω Find the magnitude of the angular deceler ation of the wheel. Correct answer: 0 . 477664 rad / s 2 . Explanation: The first drop has a velocity at the point of leaving the wheel given by 1 2 m v 2 1 = m g h 1 or v 1 = p 2 g h 1 = 3 . 40635 m / s . In the same way the second drop has velocity v 2 = p 2 g h 2 = 3 . 26233 m / s . Patel, Kinal – Homework 14 – Due: Oct 26 2007, 7:00 pm – Inst: D Weathers 2 From ω = v r we obtain ω 1 = v 1 r = 8 . 51587 rad / s ω 2 = v 2 r = 8 . 15583 rad / s . Using the kinematic equation 2 α ( θ f θ i ) = ω 2 f ω 2 i the angular acceleration is α = ω 2 2 ω 2 1 2(2 π ) = g [ h 2 h 1 ] 2 π r 2 = (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) [(54 . 3 cm) (59 . 2 cm)] 2 π (0 . 4 m) 2 = . 477664 rad / s 2 , and  α  = 0 . 477664 rad / s 2 . keywords: 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The speed of a moving bullet can be deter mined by allowing the bullet to pass through two rotating paper disks mounted a distance 85 cm apart on the same axle. From the angular displacement 42 . 7 ◦ of the two bul let holes in the disks and the rotational speed 729 rev / min of the disks, we can determine the speed of the bullet....
