the ﬁgure below. Five possible vectors are also shown in the
ﬁgure; the letter E represents the zero vector. Which vector best represents the car's velocity at position 1?
Which vector best represents the car's acceleration at position 1?
Which vector best represents the car's velocity at position 2?
Which vector best represents the car's acceleration at position 2?
Which vector best represents the car's veiocity at position 3?
Which vector best represents the car's acceleration at position 3? Problem 2 The ﬁgure below shows block A sitting on top of block B.
A constant force F is exerted on block B, causing block B
to accelerate to the right. Block A rides on block B
without slipping. Which statement is true? 1. Block B does not exert a friction force on block A.
2. Block B exerts a friction force on block A, directed to the left. (9 Block B exerts a friction force on block A, directed to the right. Problem 3 As a roller coaster car crosses the top

3.0—Inhigh frictionless chute to a waiting truck. Unfortunately, the truck driver went on a
break without having removed the previous package, of mass 2m, from the bottom of the
chute (the bottom of the chute is on a horizontal frictionless surface). Suppose the packages make an inelastic collision and stick together. What is their

collision is elastic, kinetic energy is also conserved. An object of mass m]: 1 kg is moving to the right at speed 1 m/s. It makes an elastic
collision with a stationary ' f mass mg kg. After the collision, both m1 and m 2 are

masses attract with a force F = Gmlmzldz, where dis the separation distance. He then
appiied this law to planetary orbits around the Sun and found that the period T and radius
R of any planet’s orbit around the Sun are related according to T2 = (constant)*R3.
Suppose instead of the Law given above, he had tried the law F = Gm1m2/d4. What
would he have found for the relationship between T and R? Problem 8 The temperature of the air in a basketball increases as it is pumped up. Which one is
true? 1. The totai kinetic energy of the air is decreasing and the average kinetic energy of each atom is decreasing.
2. The total kinetic energy of the air is decreasing and the average kinetic energy of each atom is increasing
3. The total kinetic energy of the air is increasing and the average kinetic energy of r _ each atom is decreasing.
@ The total kinetic energy of the air is increasing and the average kinetic energy of each atom is increasing. Problem 9 An ideal gas is held in a container of voiume V at pressure P. The rms speed of a gas

Problem 10 Two blocks of copper, 1.00kg and 3.00kg, are at the same temperature. 1. Which block has more thermal energy? L49 2. If the blocks are placed in thermal contact, will the thermal energy of the blocks
change? If so, how?
No Problem 11 Refrigerators have a thermodynamic limit on their COP, given by COP < Tc/(Tt1 _ Tc),
where TC(K) is the temperature of the fridge, Th(K) is the environment temperature, and
COP is deﬁned as COP *—‘ (heat extracted from fridge)/ (input work). (I) the heat in Joules extracted ﬁ'om the fridge per cycle (2) the heat exhausted to the environment per cycle Problem 12 A 750g aluminum pan is removed from the stove and plunged i a sink ﬁll d with
