pasha (sep635) – HW 9-1 – Antoniewicz – (56445) 1 This print-out should have 24 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A man whose mass is 80 kg and a woman whose mass is 50 kg sit at opposite ends of a canoe 5 m long, whose mass is 35 kg. Assume the man is seated at x = 0 and the boat extends along the positive x axis with the woman at the other end. Where is the center of mass of the system consisting of man, woman, and canoe? Correct answer: 2 . 04545 m. Explanation: With the man ( m 1 ) at the origin, we have x CM = m 1 x 1 + m 2 x 2 + m 3 x 3 m 1 + m 2 + m 3 = 0 + (50 kg)(5 m) + (35 kg)(2 . 5 m) 80 kg + 50 kg + 35 kg = 2 . 04545 m . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points Suppose that the man moves quickly to the center of the canoe and sits down there. How far does the canoe move in the water? Correct answer: 1 . 21212 m. Explanation: Assume that the net force on the canoe is zero. Then its center of mass momentum (and velocity) remains constant, which is zero in this case. So the center of mass of the system remains stationary. Place the origin at the left end of the canoe (where the man was sitting in part 1) and the new center of mass is at x CM = m 1 x 1 + m 2 x 2 + m 3 x 3 m 1 + m 2 + m 3 = (80 kg)(2 . 5 m) + (50 kg)(5 m) 80 kg + 50 kg + 35 kg + (35 kg)(2 . 5 m) 80 kg + 50 kg + 35 kg = 3 . 25758 m . At first, the center of mass was 2 . 04545 m from the left end. Now the center of mass is 3 . 25758 m from the left end. But the center of mass never moved! This means the boat moved 3 . 25758 m - 2 . 04545 m = 1 . 21212 m to the left as the man walked 1 . 21212 m to the right. 003 (part 1 of 3) 7.0 points A string is wound around a uniform disc whose mass is 3 . 5 kg and radius is 0 . 58 m , see figure below. The disc is released from rest with the string vertical and its top end tied to a fixed support. The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 . h 0 . 58 m 3 . 5 kg ω As the disc descends, calculate the tension in the string. Correct answer: 11 . 4333 N. Explanation: Let : R = 0 . 58 m , M = 3 . 5 kg , and g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Basic Concepts F = m a τ = I α Δ U + Δ K rot + Δ K trans = 0 Solution F = T - M g = - M a and (1)

    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.
