Physics : Exam 1 (80 Minutes, Maximum points: 120) Multiple choice questions 1-6: 10 points each 1. To the right is a free body diagram for a shoe sitting at rest on a tilted floor tile (tilted at an angle θ above the horizontal.) Identify all the mistakes in the free-body diagram. (a) r N S on Sh should be pointing vertically upwards (b) r N S on Sh is drawn too long (c) There is no friction in this situation (d) Both (a) and (b) are mistakes in the free-body diagram (e) Both (b) and (c) are mistakes in the free-body diagram 2. You are traveling in a car and when you are 40 m from a traffic light, you see it turn yellow. You are traveling at 20 m/s. You immediately hit the brakes (ignore any reaction time). You slow down at a rate of 8 m/s every second. Which of the following equations best represents the subsequent position of the car as a function of time? (Treat the moment you hit the brakes as the starting clock reading t = 0, take the traffic light as the origin of the co-ordinate system.) (a) x ( t ) = 40m + (20m /s) t + 1 2 ( - 8m /s 2 ) t 2 (b) x ( t ) = 40m + (20m /s) t + 1 2 (8m /s 2 ) t 2 (c) x ( t ) = 40m + ( - 20m /s) t + 1 2 ( - 8m /s 2 ) t 2 (d) x ( t ) = 40m + ( - 20m /s) t + 1 2 (8m /s 2 ) t 2 (e) Both (a) and (d) are correct. 3. You pull a 30-kg suitcase along the ground by means of a strap, which exerts a force of magnitude 50 N at an angle of 40 ° above the horizontal. What answer is closest to the magnitude of the normal force exerted by the ground on the suitcase? You can assume that the ground is smooth. (a) 32N (b) 38N (c) 50N (d) 268N (e) 300N 4. Imagine a book sitting on a table. Identify the third law pair force(s) of the forces shown in the free-body diagram for the book, shown to the right. (a) Newton’s third law applies to two interacting objects and there is only one object shown in the free-body diagram.

    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.
