Unformatted text preview: schroeder (cs39963) Resource 7: Momentum, Work and Energy balasubramanya (1401310) 1 This print-out should have 40 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A 10 metric ton train moves toward the south at 40 m / s. At what speed must it travel to have five times its original momentum? A metric ton is 1000 kg. Correct answer: 200 m / s. Explanation: Let : v = 40 m / s and p final = 5 p initial . Since momentum is proportional to speed, its speed must be increased to v f = 5(40 m / s) = 200 m / s . 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points At what speed must it travel to have a momentum of 4 10 5 kg m / s? Correct answer: 40 m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 10 metric ton and p = 4 10 5 kg m / s . Since a metric ton is 1000 kg, p = mv v = p m = 4 10 5 kg m / s 10 metric ton 1 metric ton 1000 kg = 40 m / s . 003 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points If there were a speed limit for this train as it traveled through a city, but not a weight limit, what mass must be added to the train to slow it down to 30 m / s while at the same time keeping the momentum the same as in the second part? Correct answer: 3333 . 33 kg. Explanation: Let : p = 4 10 5 kg m / s , v = 30 m / s , and m = 10000 kg . p = mv m = p v = 4 10 5 kg m / s 30 m / s = 13333 . 3 kg is the required mass, so we must add m = 13333 . 3 kg 10000 kg = 3333 . 33 kg . 004 (part 1 of 4) 10.0 points Calculate the magnitude of the linear momen- tum for each of the following cases a) a proton with mass 1 . 67 10 27 kg mov- ing with a velocity of 6 10 6 m / s. Correct answer: 1 . 002 10 20 kg m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 1 . 67 10 27 kg and v = 6 10 6 m / s . Momentum is vectorp = mvectorv , so p = ( 1 . 67 10 27 kg )( 6 10 6 m / s ) = 1 . 002 10 20 kg m / s . 005 (part 2 of 4) 10.0 points b) a 1 . 6 g bullet moving with a speed of 312 m / s to the right. Correct answer: 0 . 4992 kg m / s. schroeder (cs39963) Resource 7: Momentum, Work and Energy balasubramanya (1401310) 2 Explanation: Let : m = 1 . 6 g and v = 312 m / s . p = (1 . 6 g)(312 m / s) 1 kg 1000 g = . 4992 kg m / s . 006 (part 3 of 4) 10.0 points c) a 8 kg sprinter running with a velocity of 13 . 3 m / s. Correct answer: 106 . 4 kg m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 8 kg and v = 13 . 3 m / s . p = (8 kg)(13 . 3 m / s) = 106 . 4 kg m / s . 007 (part 4 of 4) 10.0 points d) Earth ( m = 5 . 98 10 24 kg) moving with an orbital speed equal to 29400 m / s. Correct answer: 1 . 75812 10 29 kg m / s. Explanation: Let : m = 5 . 98 10 24 kg and v = 29400 m / s ....
