Unformatted text preview: reddy (ar38357) – Impulse and Momentum – clancy – (SCI411-2) 1 This print-out should have 11 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points On planet X, an object weighs 14 . 9 N. On planet B where the magnitude of the free-fall acceleration is 2 g (where g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 is the gravitational acceleration on Earth), the object weighs 33 . 5 N. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . a) What is the mass of the object on planet X? Correct answer: 1 . 70918 kg. Explanation: Basic Concept The mass of the object is constant, regard- less of the gravitational acceleration or the planet. Solution From Newton’s second law W B = mg B m = W B g B = 33 . 5 N (2) g = 1 . 70918 kg 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points b) What is the free-fall acceleration on planet X? Correct answer: 8 . 71761 m / s 2 . Explanation: The free-fall acceleration on planet X is g x = W x m = 14 . 9 N 1 . 70918 kg = 8 . 71761 m / s 2 003 10.0 points A man weighs 1030 N on Earth. What would he weigh on Jupiter, where the free-fall acceleration is 25 . 9 m / s 2 ? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 2722 . 14 N. Explanation: The man’s weight on earth is given by W e = mg e m = W e g e = 1030 N 9 . 8 m / s 2 = 105 . 102 kg His weight on Jupiter will be W J = mg J = (105 . 102 kg) (25 . 9 m / s 2 ) = 2722 . 14 N . 004 10.0 points If one knows only the constant resultant force acting on an object and the time during which this force acts, one can determine the 1. change in kinetic energy of the object.change in kinetic energy of the object....
