Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A rock of mass m is thrown horizontally off a building from a height h . The speed of the rock as it leaves the throwers hand at the edge of the building is v as shown. v h x How much time does it take the rock to travel from the edge of the building to the ground? 1. t = radicalbig hv 2. t = hv g 3. t = radicalBigg 2 h g correct 4. t = h v 5. t = 2 h g Explanation: The motion of the rock in the ydirection is a free falling motion from rest: h = 1 2 g t 2 t = radicalBigg 2 h g . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the kinetic energy of the rock just before it hits the ground? 1. K f = 1 2 mv 2 + mg h correct 2. K f = mg h 1 2 mv 2 3. K f = 1 2 mv 2 mg h 4. K f = 1 2 mv 2 5. K f = mg h Explanation: By the workenergy theorem, K f K i = W , where in the present problem, W = ( mg ) h and K i = 1 2 mv 2 . Thus, K f = K i + W = 1 2 mv 2 + mg h . 003 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points A bead slides starting from rest at position O on a frictionless wire. The gravitation field is in the y direction. x y Z S Y O At which position(s) will the speed of the bead have a maximum value? 1. Point Z . 2. Point S . 3. Point Y . correct 4. The bead remains stationary at point O . 5. Points Z and Y . Explanation: Since the total energy is constant, the max imum kinetic energy will occur when the po tential energy is a minimum. Thus point Y is the correct answer. burgin (lcb626) HW06 markert (56480) 2 004 (part 2 of 4) 10.0 points At which position(s) will the magnitude of the acceleration in the x direction of the bead have a maximum value? 1. Points Z and Y . 2. Point Z . 3. Point S . 4. Point Y . 5. Point O . correct Explanation: The acceleration is maximum at point O . The acceleration is along the path of the wire at point O . Therefore the x component of the acceleration is greatest at point O . 005 (part 3 of 4) 10.0 points At which position(s) will the speed of the bead have a minimum value? 1. Point S . correct 2. The beads speed is constant. 3. Points Z and Y . 4. Point Y . 5. Point Z . Explanation: Since the total energy is constant, the min imum kinetic energy will occur when the po tential energy is a maximum. Thus point S is the correct answer....
