PHY 2048 Midterm Exam Spring 2011 Use g = 9.80 m/s . 2 1. [20 points] A 56 kg astronaut drifting with a velocity of (+ 1.86 ) m/s is holding $ j a 9.86 kg module for the space station. She throws the module to another astronaut at a velocity of ( 2.59 – 2.38 ) m/s. $ i $ j (A) Find the (vector) velocity of the first astronaut after she threw the module. (B) Calculate the work done by the first astronaut when throwing the module. 2. [10 points] The position of a 1.87 kg mass is given by x(t) = (3.4 m) cos( [6.1 s -1 ] t ), where x is in m when t is in s. Determine the velocity of this mass. Give your answer as a function of time with numerical values specified with the correct number of significant figures and units. 3. [10 points] An electric motor produces a power of 68.2 W on the drive wheels of a 7.33 kg cart. If the cart is moving at 3.87 m/s, what is its acceleration at that moment? 4. [15 points]
