Unformatted text preview: ortiz (lno236) Practice Homework 1 Solutions Weathers (17101) 1 This printout should have 73 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A sphere of metal has a radius of 6 . 7 cm and a density of 8 . 1 g / cm 3 . What is the mass of the sphere? Correct answer: 10204 . 6 g. Explanation: Let : r = 6 . 7 cm and = 8 . 1 g / cm 3 . Density is mass per unit volume, so = m V m = V = 4 3 r 3 = ( 8 . 1 g / cm 3 ) 4 3 (6 . 7 cm) 3 = 10204 . 6 g . 002 10.0 points To protect her new twowheeler, Iroda Bike buys a length of chain. She finds that its linear density is 0 . 72 lb / ft. If she wants to keep its weight below 1 . 7 lb, what length of chain is she allowed? Correct answer: 2 . 36111 ft. Explanation: Let : = 0 . 72 lb / ft and W = 1 . 7 lb . applying dimensional analysis, the length is defined by = W = 1 . 7 lb . 72 lb / ft = 2 . 36111 ft . 003 10.0 points A plastic tube allows a flow of 12 . 6 cm 3 / s of water through it. How long will it take to fill a 220 cm 3 bottle with water? Correct answer: 17 . 4603 s. Explanation: Let : r = 12 . 6 cm 3 / s and V = 220 cm 3 . cm 3 cm 3 s = cm 3 s cm 3 = s , so the time is t = V r = 220 cm 3 12 . 6 cm 3 / s = 17 . 4603 s . 004 10.0 points Evaluate [ r ]; i.e. , the units of r , in the expres sion r = radicalbigg ( s a ) ( s b ) ( s c ) s , where s = 1 2 ( a + b + c ) , and a , b , and c have units of meters. 1. [ r ] = m 3 2. [ r ] = 1 m 1 / 2 3. [ r ] = 1 m 4. [ r ] = 1 m 1 / 3 5. [ r ] = m 1 / 2 6. [ r ] = m correct 7. [ r ] = 1 m 2 8. [ r ] = m 2 9. [ r ] = m 1 / 3 Explanation: ortiz (lno236) Practice Homework 1 Solutions Weathers (17101) 2 The unit of measure for s = a + b + c 2 is also meters (we are averaging them), and the unit of measure for radicalbigg ( s a ) ( s b ) ( s c ) s is radicalbigg m m m m = m 2 = m . 005 10.0 points When an object falls through air, there is a drag force ( with dimension M L / T 2 ) that depends on the product of the surface area of the object and the square of its velocity; i.e. , F air = C A v 2 , where C is a constant. What is the dimension for constant C ? 1. [ C ] = T 2 L 2 M 2. [ C ] = T L 2 M 3. [ C ] = M T 4. [ C ] = M L 3 correct 5. [ C ] = T M 6. [ C ] = T 2 L M 7. [ C ] = M T L 2 8. [ C ] = T L M 9. [ C ] = M L 2 10. [ C ] = M T 2 L 2 Explanation: [ F ] = M L / T 2 , [ A ] = L 2 , and [ v ] = L / T , so [ C ] = [ F ] [ A ] [ v ] 2 = M L / T 2 L 2 (L / T) 2 = M L T 2 T 2 L 4 = M L 3 . 006 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Mount McKinley in Alaska is Americas highest mountain at 20,300 feet....
