PHY2048 Unit 3 Assignment Show all your steps and draw diagrams where necessary. Add explanatory notes where necessary. 1. A particle oscillates back and forth in a frictionless bowl whose height is given by h(x) = 0.22x 2 where h and x are meters. (a) Show graphically how the potential and kinetic energies of the particle vary with x. (b) Where does the particle have maximum kinetic energy? (c) If the maximum speed of the particle is 0.4 ms -1 , find the x-coordinates at which the particle has maximum potential energy. 2. A spring of spring constant k = 340 Nm -1 is used to launch a 1.5-kg block along a horizontal surface by compressing the spring by a distance of 18 cm. If the coefficient of sliding friction between the block and the surface is 0.25, how far does the block slide? 3. A 1000-kg compact car moving with a velocity of v 1 = (32 i + 17 j )ms -1 collides with a 450-kg wagon moving with a velocity v 2 = (12 i + 14 j )ms -1 . If the two stick together after collision, what is the velocity of the wreck?
