Unformatted text preview: Problem 1 (25 Points) (a lOpts) A bar of aluminum has a length of 2 m and a cross-sectional area of 1 x 10‘4 m2. If the macrosc0pic spring stiffness of the bar is equal to 3.1 x 106 N/m, what is the Young’s modulus of aluminum. [AT/1’ A (leq M2) n... y, F/A : kL , (slump/Mm”) i=éan (b lOpts) The density of aluminum is 2.7 g/cm3 and the atomic mass is 27 g/mol. What is the interatomic spring stiffness for aluminum? (c 5pts) If you hit one end of the aluminum bar with a hammer, how long does it take before the other end of the bar experiences this perturbation? If you were unable to complete part (b), express your answer in terms of ksfl. (2»Sexlo"°m> Problem 2 (25 Points) A block of mass m hangs from two identical springs each with spring stiffness ks, as show in the accompa- nying figure. How much does each spring stretch when the block is in static equilibrium? Problem 3 (25 Points) A Ferris wheel is a vertical, circular amuse- ment ride with radius 5 m. The Ferris wheel rotates clockwise at a constant rate, going around once in 10 s. Consider a rider whose mass is 75 kg and sitting in the fourth seat. Note that the figure is not to scale and the an- gle between seat four and seat five is actually 6 = 40°. (a 4pts) In the space provided draw a diagram indicating the forces acting on the rider in the fourth seat. Note that the Ferris wheel rotates at a constant rate. \P/ F\ K East,“ :0 g) its,” has “i0 be a3 iohj 0L3 Lima)“ Rem to owl MW cod” 50 1:le I‘S lanai! ‘H‘Mn (mg); 0;? , (b 4pts) What is the parallel component of the rate of change of the riders momentum in the fourth seat?

For F5 ) Problem 4 (25 Points) (a 6pts) An electron of mass m is traveling in a straight line in the positive x—direction at a speed vi = 0.990, where c is the speed of light. A constant force brings this electron to a complete stop. What is the change in kinetic ener of the electron?

Once the electron is moving at this final speed, it enters a region containing a strong magnetic field. The result of the interaction between the electron and the magnetic field is that the path of the electron begins to curve. Since the speed remains unaltered, which components of the rate of change of momentum change and why?

(d 7pts) At some point along this curved trajectory, the osculating (or kissing) circle has a radius R = 0.5 m. If the magnitude of the perpendicular component of the force acting on the electron at this instant is F = 1.62 x 10‘10 N how fast is the electron traveling? at; r ‘Tlm’: o‘PPmecL 75 ian‘E‘ClL. _\ Z t”. : WW2 b/c [ill give: ‘<~J~-I>C‘ 0“ .L K ___ ~ Q,52x(0.'ol\l3(0.§m) I —_> \I if t l -23 ‘ (lt’l Xloq‘ms . m OHxlO log K \ x“ 522 mex‘i’ Pmyfi Qt correfi‘ QMSW Comet" ginHOM ‘3“ F:1£:Uy‘{: KW‘VZ: ‘ < 5m Cream '14 cu [u I/ Y P J 6x CAICU (A'Hr 4'th him you‘ H J05" ...
