Physics 140 Winter 2004 Midterm 1 1 1. (P) Three boxes of salamis with masses m 1 , m 2 and m 3 are being pulled to the right across a horizontal, frictionless surface using the light connecting strings shown. Which of the following combinations of masses m 1 : m 2 : m 3 (in kg) will produce a ratio of tensions T 3 / T 1 = 4? a) 1 : 2.5 : 0.5 b) 0.5 : 1.5 : 0.5 c) 0.5 : 0.5 : 1 d) both b) and c) e) both a) and c) 2. Consider co-planar vectors a , b , and c , shown below, with magnitudes a =3, b =4 and c =10. The angle between a and b is 30 degrees and the angle between b and c is a right angle. Which of the following expressions is false?

Physics 140 Winter 2004 Midterm 1 2 3. (P) A strong push sends a box of dill pickles sliding up the curved ramp outlined below. There is friction between the box and the ramp. As it continues to roll up the incline at the location shown in the picture, what happens to the magnitudes of the following: the force of kinetic friction f k , the normal force on the box from the ramp N , and the component of gravity parallel to the incline F g,|| = F g . i , where i is the unit vector in the direction of the velocity v ? a) f k decreases, N increases, and F g,|| increases b) f k increases, N increases, and F g,|| decreases c) f k decreases, N decreases, and F g,|| increases d) f k is constant, N decreases, and F g,|| increases e) all decrease 4. (P) The Spirit Rover is exploring rocks in a flat basin of Mars. Starting from its base platform, it first follows instructions to travel 30m in a direction 30 ° North of East (in Martian terms, of course). After a few soil analysis experiments, it then travels 40m in a direction 30 ° West of North where it visits the so-called “Michigan palm rock”. It is then instructed to return to its base platform to downlink data. If the rover travels at a speed of 0.25 m/s, in what direction must it go and how long will it take for Spirit to return to its base? v

    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.
