Unformatted text preview: Name: ................................. SID .............................. l. A mass m., initially moving with velocity v0 to the right, undergoes an elastic collision with an initially stationary mass m. After the collision, both masses are moving to the right, and the velocity of mass m. is one fourth the velocity of m; (V1 = i—Vz). What is the ratio ofthe two masses, ml/mg? Hint: It may be convenient to set m1 = ymg and solve for 7/. Initially your solution may appear to involve a quadratic, but in the end, it does not. Explain your work; substantial partial credit will be given if your steps are correct even if your algebra is wrong.

Kate, a bungeejumper, wants tojump off the edge ofa bridge that spans a river below. Kate has a mass m, and the surface of the bridge is a height h above the water. The bungee cord, which has length L when unstretched, will first straighten and then stretch as Kate falls. Assume the following: . The bungee cord behaves as an ideal spring once it begins to stretch, with spring constant k. . Kate doesn't actually jump but simply steps off the edge of the bridge and falls straight downward. . Kate's height is negligible compared to the length ofthe bungee cord. Hence, she can be treated as a point particle. a. How far below the bridge will Kate eventually be hanging, once she stops oscillating and comes finally to rest? Assume that she doesn‘t touch the water. b. What is the spring constant I? for displacements around the equilibrium position found in part a)? In other words, if Ax is the displacement from the equilibrium found in a), what is the proper value of E in the equation Fnet = 4—ch ‘?

    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.
