Unformatted text preview: pampalone (tp8327) HW#11 swaminathan (10500) 1 This printout should have 16 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 3 . 41 kg ball is attached to a 13 . 3 N fish line. The ball is released from rest at the horizontal position ( = 90 ). At what angle (measured from the verti cal) will the fish line break? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Correct answer: 82 . 3765 . Explanation: In the swing down to the breaking point, energy is conserved: mg r cos = mv 2 2 2 g m cos = mv 2 r . At the breaking point, consider the radial forces: summationdisplay F r = ma r T mg cos = mv 2 r T = 3 mg cos = arccos parenleftbigg T 3 mg parenrightbigg = arccos bracketleftbigg 13 . 3 N 3(3 . 41 kg)(9 . 8 m / s 2 ) bracketrightbigg = 82 . 3765 . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A ball of mass m is attached to a spring of negligible mass, and force constant k . The spring is freely pivoted at the opposite end from the ball, and the system is initially at rest and horizontal. L L + L If the ball is allowed to fall, what is its speed when the system is swinging through the vertical and the spring is stretched an amount L = L 10 , where L is the springs initial, unstretched length? 1. radicalBigg parenleftbigg k L m 11 g parenrightbiggparenleftbigg L 10 parenrightbigg 2. radicalBigg parenleftbigg k L 10 m 22 g parenrightbigg L 10 3. radicalBigg parenleftbigg 10 g k L m parenrightbiggparenleftbigg L 100 parenrightbigg 4. radicalBigg k L 2 mg 5.
