Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. In class we did not cover the part of Ch. 3 dealing with vector products, and vector products will not be covered on this home- work or on Quiz 1. Vector products will be in- troduced in later chapters as they are needed for the concepts of work and torque. 001 10.0 points A hiker makes three straight-line walks A 16 km at 301 ◦ B 19 km at 359 ◦ C 31 km at 81 ◦ in random directions and lengths starting at position (41 km , 41 km) , listed below and shown below in the plot. A B C Scale: 10 km = Figure: Drawn to ok. Which vector will return the hiker to the starting point? All angles are measured in a counter-clockwise direction from the positive x-axis. 1. bardbl vector D bardbl = 32 . 2631 km , θ d = 273 . 996 ◦ 2. bardbl vector D bardbl = 26 . 5131 km , θ d = 172 . 211 ◦ 3. bardbl vector D bardbl = 22 . 5473 km , θ d = 301 . 08 ◦ 4. bardbl vector D bardbl = 60 . 135 km , θ d = 104 . 162 ◦ 5. bardbl vector D bardbl = 12 . 3751 km , θ d = 290 . 007 ◦ 6. bardbl vector D bardbl = 36 . 114 km , θ d = 207 . 315 ◦ cor- rect 7. bardbl vector D bardbl = 32 . 5179 km , θ d = 206 . 246 ◦ 8. bardbl vector D bardbl = 4 . 4293 km , θ d = 167 . 501 ◦ 9. bardbl vector D bardbl = 20 . 6618 km , θ d = 22 . 4451 ◦ 10. bardbl vector D bardbl = 45 . 172 km , θ d = 131 . 966 ◦ Explanation: Δ a x = (16 km) cos 301 ◦ = 8 . 24064 km , Δ a y = (16 km) sin 301 ◦ = − 13 . 7147 km , Δ b x = (19 km) cos 359 ◦ = 18 . 9971 km , Δ b y = (19 km) sin 359 ◦ = − . 331545 km , Δ c x = (31 km) cos 81 ◦ = 4 . 84945 km , Δ c y = (31 km) sin 81 ◦ = 30 . 6183 km , A B θ d C D Scale: 10 km = Δ x = Δ a x + Δ b x + Δ c x = 8 . 24064 km + (18 . 9971 km) johnson (mjj622) – HW 2 – Coker – (56625) 2 + (4 . 84945 km) Δ y = Δ a y + Δ b y + Δ c y = − 13 . 7147 km + ( − . 331545 km) + (30 . 6183 km) The resultant is D = radicalBig (Δ x ) 2 + (Δ y ) 2 = radicalBig (73 . 0872 km) 2 + (57 . 5721 km) 2 θ D = arctan vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 57 . 5721 km − (41 km) 73 . 0872 km − (41 km) vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = 207 . 315 ◦ ....
