MIDTERM EXAMINATION Time: 7:00 —~ 9:00 pm ID. #2 W5 PROFESSOR: . SECTION #: SIGNATURE: IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS  READ CAREFULLY TO AVOID PENALTY 1. Use PENCIL. Mark your ID# and three digit “Section number”. Check that you have not
missed, or put double marks in any row in the answer ﬁeld. (Keep sheet face down when not in
use.) 2. Fill in name, etc, at upper right on computer sheet and on this page. 3. HAND IN SHEET AND BOOKLET SEPARATELY. Booklets will be returned later. 4. Check that your exam has 12 questions. All questions are of equal value, so don’t get hung up
and miss the easy ones. Formula sheet should be attached 5. There is no penalty marking for incorrect answers. However, in the event that the computer
sheet cannot be completely read, credit will be given to correct answers only if work is shown in
the space below the questions in this booklet. 6. If you need more space for your calculations, use the back of the previous page and label it with
the question number. 7. Good luck! ! g : 9.8 m/s2, 10 = 10'”W/m2 1 7

platform of mass 100 kg. The platform is attached to one end ofa giant slinky and the other end ofthe slinky to a tall crane. The systems oscillates in a vertical plane
beside a tall building with an amplitude of 20 m in SHM.
When the slinky is fully stretched and at a momentary stop
the platform just touches the ground. At this instant one
student steps off the platform. The second student continues
to oscillate for a while and then decides to step off the
platform when it reaches the highest point which also
happens to be the roof top of the building. If the slinky has
