Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Water flows over Victoria Falls, which is 128 m high, at an average rate of 1 . 56 10 6 kg/s. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 81 m / s 2 . If half the potential energy of this water were converted into electric energy, how much power would be produced by these falls? Correct answer: 979 . 43 MW. Explanation: Let : m t = 1 . 56 10 6 kg / s , h = 128 m m , and g = 9 . 81 m / s 2 . P = W t =- U t =- 1 2 ( mg h ) t =- 1 2 g h m t =- 1 2 (9 . 81 m / s 2 ) (- 128 m) (1 . 56 10 6 kg / s) MW 10 6 W = 979 . 43 MW . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A bead slides without friction around a loop- the-loop. The bead is released from a height 9 m from the bottom of the loop-the-loop which has a radius 3 m....
