Phys 100 Fall 2011 Concepts of Physics: Class Test I 26 September 2011 Name: Total: /50 Instructions There are 10 questions on 5 pages. Show your reasoning and calculations and always justify your answers. Physical constants and useful formulae speed = distance traveled time elapsed s = d t acceleration = change in velocity time elapsed a = v t distance = 1 2 × acceleration × time 2 d = 1 2 × a × t 2 acceleration = net force mass a = F m net force = mass × acceleration F = ma earth’s gravitational force = mass × 9 . 8 F = m × 9 . 8 gravitational force = 6 . 67 × 10 - 11 × mass 1 × mass 2 distance 2 F grav = 6 . 67 × 10 - 11 × m 1 × m 2 d 2 Question 1 A chlorine atom ( Cl ) has a mass exactly 35 times that of a hydrogen atom ( H ). Hydrogen atoms and chlorine atoms can combine to form hydrochloric acid, HCl (one chlorine atom and one hydrogen atom). Suppose that this is decomposed giving exactly 5 kg of hydrogen. Which of the following (choose one) is the mass of the chlorine produced by this decomposition? a) 5 kg. b) 7 kg. c) 35 kg. d) 40 kg. e) 165 kg. /4
