huynh (hph268) – HW #5 – clark – (56485) 1 This print-out should have 19 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points If a spring with a spring constant k = 10 N / m is stretched from its equilibrium position by 0 . 1 m , and released, what would be the maxi- mum kinetic energy at any time in its motion? Neglect friction. 1. 0.1 J 2. 0.05 J 3. 0.025 J 4. 1 J 5. Not enough information given 002 10.0 points Use the potential energy vs . position plot shown below to answer the following question. A particle is released from point A and moves in the potential U ( x ). Suppose the mechanical energy of the system is conserved. x U ( x ) T Y V A At which position(s) will the kinetic energy of the particle have its maximum value? 1. Points T and V . 2. Point Y . 3. Point T . 4. Point V . 5. The particle remains stationary at point A . 003 10.0 points A lunar vehicle is tested on Earth at a speed of 10 km/h. When it travels this fast on the moon, how does its momentum compare to the momen- tum on Earth? 1. None of these 2. less than on Earth 3. the same as on Earth 4. greater than on Earth 004 10.0 points Suppose the entire population of the Earth gathers at one spot and, at the sound of a pre- arranged signal, everyone jumps up. About a second later, 5 billion people land back on the ground. After the people have landed, Earth’s mo- mentum is 1. the same as what it was before the people jumped. 2. different from what it was before the peo- ple jumped. 005 10.0 points An open train car moves with speed 16 . 2 m / s on a flat frictionless railroad track, with no engine pulling the car. It begins to rain. The rain falls straight down and begins to fill the train car. The speed of the car 1. decreases. 2. stays the same. 3. increases.

    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.
