billing (cab4763) – HW 2 – Opyrchal – (11109) 1 This print-out should have 17 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 10.0 points A car travels along a straight stretch oF road. It proceeds For 11 . 5 mi at 53 mi / h, then 22 . 5 mi at 44 mi / h, and fnally 47 . 6 mi at 33 . 8 mi / h. What is the car’s average velocity during the entire trip? Correct answer: 38 . 191 mi / h. Explanation: Let : d A = 11 . 5 mi , v A = 53 mi / h , d B = 22 . 5 mi , v B = 44 mi / h , d C = 47 . 6 mi , and v C = 33 . 8 mi / h . The total time the car spent on the road is Δ t = d A v A + d B v B + d C v C = 11 . 5 mi 53 mi / h + 22 . 5 mi 44 mi / h + 47 . 6 mi 33 . 8 mi / h = 2 . 13663 h , so the average velocity is v = Δ d Δ t = d A + d B + d C Δ t = 11 . 5 mi + 22 . 5 mi + 47 . 6 mi 2 . 13663 h = 38 . 191 mi / h . 002 (part 1 oF 3) 10.0 points Consider the plot below describing motion along a straight line with an initial position oF x 0 = 10 m. - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 0 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 b b b b b time (s) velocity (m/s) What is the position at 2 seconds? Correct answer: 11 m. Explanation: The initial position given in the problem is 10 m. b b b b b b b b 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 time (s) The position at 2 seconds is 10 meters plus the area oF the triangle (shaded in the above plot) x = 10 m + 1 2 (2 s - 0 s) × (1 m / s - 0 m / s) = 11 m ; however, it can also be calculated: x = x i + v i ( t f - t i ) + 1 2 ( t f - t i ) 2 = (10 m) + (0 m / s) (2 s - 0 s) + 1 2 (0 . 5 m / s 2 ) (2 s - 0 s) 2 = 11 m .
