Unformatted text preview: PHYS 121 (SPll) NAME (print clearly): EXAM 4 50 pts maximum Discussion Section (required): You can bring a 3x5 inch index card. Only non-programmable and non-graphing calculator is allowed. Write legibly and present your solutions in an organized and coherent form. Use pencil. You must show all work, not just the answers. A correct answer alone will receive zero point. For full credit for C21, 02 and Q3, your solution must include proper diagrams, a description of your plan for solving the problem from fundamental equations, and an answer to the question posed in the problem. Q1. Your friend is trying to raise a 7.5-m—long, 50-kg flagpole that has a hinge at the base by pulling on a rope attached to the top of the pole, below is the draft his design. Since you are taking physics, he asks you to check his design. You see the rope is rated at 300 N from its package. What will you advise? (12 pts} . trim/:1: ~"Ei‘fl-"Wfifilef ..

Now let’s modify it by replacing the light string with a thin rod with mass M/2 and length L, so here is your question. A clay ball of mass M and speed v0 traveling in the horizontal direction strikes a block of mass 3M that’s suspended from a thin rod with mass M/2 and length L. The moment of inertia of a thin rod of mass m and length d is md2/3 about a perpendicular axis through one of its end. 0 . . Hin e a) Determine the speed of the clay ball just after the collusuon, g in terms of any or all of the following: up, M, L, fundamental mathematical and physical constants.

You solved an Atwood machine problem on Exam 2 by considering the pulley is massless. The correct answer is (m2g ~ mlg)/(m1+ m). Now let’s make it more realistic by considering the pulley does have mass, so here is your question. Atwood machine consists of two blocks of masses m1 and m2 tied together with a massless string that passes over a fixed and frictionless pulley, the pulley has mass mp. The moment of inertia of the pulley is mpRZ/z about a perpendicular axis through the center. A55ume m1 < m;, find the acceleration of m1. Represent your answer in the simplest possible form in terms of any or all of the following: m1, mg, mg, R and any universal physical or mathematical constants. Verify that your answer agree with the answer for the previous Atwood machine problem if you set mp=0. (15 pts) W5) mi: If W “12' “ha 1\ J] l i limp.“ l 41"! _ mj TI—mrj : mm _J Page 3 of4 (14. Your little brother hands you two steel spheres. They have the same mass, the same radius and the same exterior surface. He challenges you by claiming that one sphere is solid and the other is hollow but there is no way you can tell. Can you determine which is which without cutting them open? If so, how? If not, why not? (2 pts) (P; , am (an, 17?” Wille MT ‘l’lfnl arm, it?” fi/i’ fl/atw M a” fly/Mfl iii yet; to tie 1mm ML 75 #e 50M 72%. fi/L/ s1“ A45 kg pmwf 4fmerh~a Am) 74? hollmfl on?

If you are using a wrench to loosen a very stubborn nut, you can make the job easier by using a "cheater pipe." This is a piece of pipe that slides over the handle of the wrench, as shown, making it effectively much longer. Explain why this would help you loosen the nut.
