ADVANCED DYNAMICS — PHY 4241/5227 HOME AND CLASS WORK – SET 10 (March 2, 2009) (33) One of the Apollo missions left a mirror on the moon. The McDonald Observa- tory in Texas Fashes a laser wave at this mirror, which is received back after an elapsed time 4 t . At what distance was the mirror, when it reFected the signal? Due March 5 in class (1 point). (34) Let (in arbitrary units) ( a ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 1 , x 2 = 2 , x 3 = 3 , ( b ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 1 , x 2 = 2 , x 3 = 3 , ( c ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 1 , x 2 = 2 , x 3 = - 3 , ( d ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 0 , x 2 = 3 , x 3 = 4 , ( e ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 0 , x 2 = 3 , x 3 = 4 , ( f ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 2 , x 2 = 3 , x 3 = 4 , ( g ) ct = 5 , x 1 = 0 , x 2 = 3 , x 3 = - 4 . Write down the row and column vector for each case and calculate x α x α . Due March 5 in class (7 points). (35) A particle of mass m and electric charge q moves under the inFuence of a con-
