ESE 351 Quiz 1 Name: 9/2/2010 Sections 1.1—1.3 a. What state variable do you need to define if you see a mass in a me- chanical system? b. Let v denote the velocity of a mass M and its reference direction points to the right. This means that the mass is moving to the right when v ( t ) > 0 and that it is moving to the left when v ( t ) < 0. Let f i denote the inertial force generated by the mass due to a change in its velocity. Note that this force is an internal force of the mass and it will be generated as soon as there is a change in its velocity. Which way does the inertial force f i works when the mass is accelerating: d dt v ( t ) > 0? In other works, which direction is the reference direction for the inertial

Unformatted text preview: force f i ? To the left or to the right? c. What state variable do you need to define if you see an inductor with inductance L in an electrical circuit? d. Let v denote the voltage across a capacitor with capacitance C and let i denote the current through the capacitor. What is the equation these three quantities must satisfy? e. What name is given to the law which states that the algebraic sum of all the voltages along a loop in an electric circuit is zero? Recall that the algebraic sum means that any voltage whose direction is against the loop direction must be subtracted from the sum instead of added to the sum....

    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.
