schopper (as55864) – Ch1-HW2 – Antoniewicz – (56465) 1 This print-out should have 30 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001(part1of7)1.429points A spacecraft is observed to be at loca- tion ( 200 m , 300 m , 400 m ) relative to an origin located on a nearby asteroid, and 5 s later it is observed to be at location ( 425 m , 75 m , 700 m ) . Find the average ve- locity of the spacecraft, ¯ v = ( v x , v y , v z ) . What is v x in m/s? Correct answer: 45 m / s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: ¯ v = vectorr f vectorr i Δ t . Because vectorr is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For ¯ v x the value becomes: ¯ v x = v 2 x v 1 x Δ t = (425 m) (200 m) (5 s) = 45 m / s 002(part2of7)1.429points What is v y in m/s? Correct answer: 45 m / s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: ¯ v = vectorr f vectorr i Δ t . Because vectorr is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For ¯ v y the value becomes: ¯ v y = v 2 y v 1 y Δ t = (75 m) (300 m) (5 s) = 45 m / s 003(part3of7)1.429points What is v z in m/s? Correct answer: 60 m / s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: ¯ v = vectorr f vectorr i Δ t . Because vectorr is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For ¯ v z the value becomes: ¯ v z = v 2 z v 1 z Δ t = ( 700 m) ( 400 m) (5 s) = 60 m / s 004(part4of7)1.429points What is | vectorv | in m/s? Correct answer: 87 . 4643 m / s. Explanation: The magnitude is calculated by: | vectorv | = radicalBig v 2 x + v 2 y + v 2 z = radicalBig (45 m / s) 2 + ( 45 m / s) 2 + ( 60 m / s) 2 = 87 . 4643 m / s 005(part5of7)1.429points

schopper (as55864) – Ch1-HW2 – Antoniewicz – (56465) 2 Find the unit vector in the direction of the velocity of the spacecraft, ˆ v = ( ˆ v x , ˆ v y , ˆ v z ) . What is ˆ v x ? Correct answer: 0 . 514496. Explanation: The unit vector for a vector is given as : ˆ v = ( ˆ v x , ˆ v y , ˆ v z ) = ( v x , v y , v z ) | vectorv | For example: ˆ v x = v x | vectorv | = 45 m / s 87 . 4643 m / s = 0 . 514496 006(part6of7)1.429points What is ˆ v y ? Correct answer: 0 . 514496. Explanation: The unit vector for a vector is given as : ˆ v = ( ˆ v x , ˆ v y , ˆ v z ) = ( v x , v y , v z ) | vectorv | For example: ˆ v y = v y | vectorv | = 45 m / s 87 . 4643 m / s = 0 . 514496 007(part7of7)1.429points What is ˆ v z ? Correct answer: 0 . 685994. Explanation: The unit vector for a vector is given as : ˆ v = ( ˆ v x , ˆ v y , ˆ v z ) = ( v x , v y , v z ) | vectorv | For example: ˆ v z = v z | vectorv | = 60 m / s 87 . 4643 m / s = 0 . 685994 008(part1of7)1.429points Here are the positions at three different times for a bee in flight (a bee’s top speed is about 7 m/s .
