Unformatted text preview: Phys 100 Fall 2011 Concepts of Physics: Class Test II 31 October 2011 Name: Total: /50 Instructions There are 9 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 final speed = initial speed + acceleration time v f = v i + a t acceleration = net force mass a = F m earths gravitational force = mass 9 . 8 F grav earth = m 9 . 8 KE = 1 2 mass (speed) 2 KE = 1 2 m v 2 gravPE = mass 9 . 8 height PE = m 9 . 8 h power = energy gain time elapsed P = E t efficiency = useful energy output energy input = E output E input frequency = 1 time per cycle f = 1 T wave speed = wavelength frequency s = f Question 1 Two balls are thrown upward above the ground. Ball A has mass 4kg and ball B has mass 2kg . At a given moment their positions are as illustrated and ball A moves with speed 8m/s while ball B moves with speed 10m/s....
