Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A ball moves in the direction of the arrow labeled c in the following diagram. The ball is struck by a stick that briefly exerts a force on the ball in the direction of the arrow labeled e . Which arrow best describes the direction of vectorp , the change in the balls momentum? a b c d e f g h 1. d 2. b 3. h 4. e correct 5. c 6. a 7. g 8. f Explanation: Recall the definition of impulse: Impulse = vector F net t = vectorp. Therefore, whatever direction the net force points in, that will be the direction of the change in the balls momentum. We are told that the force is in the direction of e , so that is the correct answer. 002 (part 1 of 3) 4.0 points A hockey puck is sliding along the ice with nearly constant momentum vectorp i = ( 10 , , 8 ) kg m / s when it is suddenly struck by a hockey stick with a force vector F = ( , , 1400 ) N that lasts for only 8 milliseconds (0 . 008 s). What is the final momentum vectorp f of the puck? Begin by finding just the x component, p f,x . Answer in kg m / s. Correct answer: 10 kg m / s. Explanation: This is a straightforward application of the momentum principle. Let the system be the puck, and assume the only significant interac- tion on the system is with the hockey stick. vectorp = vector F net , sys t vectorp f vectorp i = vector F net , sys t vectorp f = vectorp i + vector F net , sys t vectorp f = ( 10 , , 8 ) kg m / s + ( , , 1400 ) N (0 . 008 s) vectorp f ( 10 , , 19 . 2 ) kg m / s . This gives us the answers to all three parts. The x component of the final momentum is p f,x = 10 kg m / s . 003 (part 2 of 3) 3.0 points Find p f,y . Answer in kg m / s. Correct answer: 0 kg m / s. Explanation: See the explanation to part 1. 004 (part 3 of 3) 3.0 points Find p f,z . Answer in kg m / s. Correct answer: 19 . 2 kg m / s. schopper (as55864) Ch2-HW1 Antoniewicz (56465) 2 Explanation: See the explanation to part 1. 005 (part 1 of 9) 2.0 points You were driving a car with velocity vectorv i = ( 27 , , 13 ) m / s . You quickly turned and braked, and your ve- locity became vectorv f = ( 9 , , 19 ) m / s . The mass of the car was 1000 kg. What are the components of the (vector) change in momentum vectorp during this maneuver? Start with the x component, p x , and give your answer in kg m / s. Pay attention to signs. Correct answer: 18000 kg m / s. Explanation: Lets go ahead and do the vector algebra for all three components. Were given the initial and final speeds, which are non-relativistic, and the mass of the car. Let the system consist of the car. We have vectorp sys = vectorp f vectorp i = m car vectorv f m car vectorv i = m car ( vectorv f vectorv i ) = (1000 kg) ( ( 9 , , 19...
