Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A rotating bicycle wheel has an angular speed of 56 / s at 4 . 6 s and a constant angular acceleration of 21 / s 2 . With the center of the wheel at the origin, the valve stem is on the positive x -axis (horizontal) at t 0 = 1 . 4 s. Through what angle has the valve stem turned between 1 . 4 s and 8 . 5 s? Correct answer: 449 . 785 . Explanation: Let : ω 1 = 56 / s , t 1 = 4 . 6 s , α = 21 / s 2 , θ 0 = 0 , t 0 = 1 . 4 s , and t = 8 . 5 s . The initial angular velocity can be deter- mined from ω 1 = ω 0 + α ( t 1 t 0 ) ω 0 = ω 1 α ( t 1 t 0 ) = 56 / s (21 / s 2 ) (4 . 6 s 1 . 4 s) = 11 . 2 / s . This θ 2 = ω 0 ( t 2 t 0 ) + 1 2 α ( t 2 t 0 ) 2 = ( 11 . 2 / s) (8 . 5 s 1 . 4 s) + 1 2 (21 / s 2 ) (8 . 5 s 1 . 4 s) 2 = 449 . 785 . 002 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points A beetle takes a joy ride on a pendulum. The string supporting the mass of the pendulum is 190 cm long. If the beetle rides through a swing of 49 , how far has he traveled along the path of the pendulum? Correct answer: 162 . 49 cm. Explanation: Let : r = 190 cm , and θ = 49 . Arc length is defined as s = r θ = (190 cm)(49 ) · parenleftBig π 180 parenrightBig = 162 . 49 cm . 003 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points What is the displacement experienced by the beetle while moving theough the same angle 49 ? Correct answer: 157 . 583 cm. Explanation: Using the law of cosines, we have bardbl vector R bardbl = radicalbig r 2 + r 2 2 r r cos θ = r radicalbig 2 (1 cos θ ) = (190 cm) radicalbig 2(1 cos 49 ) = 157 . 583 cm . Alternative Solution: Divide the isosce- les triangle in half. Then bardbl vector R bardbl = 2 . 0 r sin parenleftbigg θ 2 parenrightbigg = 2 . 0 (190 cm) sin 24 . 5 = 157 . 583 cm . 004 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points If the pendulum at some instant is swinging at 1 . 7 rad / s, how fast is the beetle traveling? Correct answer: 323 cm / s. Explanation:

### 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.

• 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.
