Version 032/AACAA – Test #1 – Antoniewicz – (57420) 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0points The velocity of a particle moving along the x axis is given by v x = a t b t 3 for t > 0 , where a = 33 m / s 2 , b = 3 . 3 m / s 4 , and t is in s. What is the acceleration of the particle when it achieves its maximum displacement in the positive x direction? 1. -54.0 2. -66.0 3. -68.0 4. -64.0 5. -62.0 6. -60.0 7. -50.0 8. -58.0 9. -52.0 10. -56.0 Correct answer: 66 m / s 2 . Explanation: The time when it achieves maximum dis- placement is when its velocity is 0: v = a t b t 3 = 0 t ( a b t 2 ) = 0 . t = radicalbigg a b = radicalBigg 33 m / s 2 3 . 3 m / s 4 = 3 . 16228 s . The acceleration at this particular time is a x = d v x dt = d ( a t b t 3 ) dt = a 3 b t 2 = a 3 a = 2 a = 2 (33 m / s 2 ) = 66 m / s 2 . 002 10.0points One cubic meter (1.0 m 3 ) of aluminum has a mass of 2700 kg, and a cubic meter of iron has a mass of 7860 kg. Find the radius of a solid aluminum sphere that has the same mass as a solid iron sphere of radius 2 . 87 cm. 1. 2.91284 2. 6.45394 3. 6.06841 4. 6.33971 5. 4.09796 6. 5.49727 7. 6.82518 8. 4.78334 9. 5.64006 10. 3.78383 Correct answer: 4 . 09796 cm. Explanation: Let : m Al = 2700 kg , m Fe = 7860 kg , and r Fe = 2 . 87 cm . Density is ρ = m V . Since the masses are the same, ρ Al V Al = ρ Fe V Fe ρ Al parenleftbigg 4 3 π r 3 Al parenrightbigg = ρ Fe parenleftbigg 4 3 π r 3 Fe parenrightbigg parenleftbigg r Al r Fe parenrightbigg 3 = ρ Fe ρ Al r Al = r Fe 3 radicalbigg ρ Fe ρ Al = (2 . 87 cm) 3 radicalBigg 7860 kg 2700 kg = 4 . 09796 cm . 003(part1of3)4.0points A motorboat heads due east at 14 . 8 m/s across a river that flows toward the south at a speed of 3 . 4 m/s. a) What is the magnitude of the resultant velocity relative to an observer on the shore? 1. 14.2201

### What students are saying

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
