Physics 301 (Fall 1998) Second Exam (October 9, 1998) Name 1. [25 points total] A simple pendulum consists of a small ball of mass m = 200g swinging on a massless, inextensible string of length R = 7m. At time t = 0 the pendulum is released from the horizontal position, as shown below. A short time later, the pendulum reaches the bottom of its swing and encounters a nail sticking out of the page a distance L = 6m below the pivot point. The pendulum begins to wrap around the nail, and at time t = t top it is at the top of its first rotation. A. Is mechanical energy of the earth-ball system conserved during the interval from t = 0 to t = t top ? Explain your reasoning. B. Find the speed of the ball at time t = t top . (Assume g = 10 m/s 2 .) Show your work. C. Find the magnitude and direction of the acceleration of the ball at t = t top . Show your work. D. Find the magnitude and direction of the net force on the ball at t = t top . Show your work.

    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.
