Damped harmonic oscillator B has an initial amplitude of 20 cm and a damping constant b/m = 0.02 s". Damped harmonic oscillator C has an initial amplitude of 30 cm and damping constant b/m = 0.03 3". After 100 5 their amplitudes are respectively XA, X3 and Xc. Rank these amplitudes from smallest to
largest, indicate any equivalencies by using =. Smallest Largest Question 2b An automobile is traveling at 10.2 m/s and sounding its horn. Observer A, running at 3.4 m/s in the same direction as the car, but behind it, hears a sound of
frequency fA. Observer B, running at 3.4 m/s in the same direction as the car, but in front of it, hears frequency f3.
Stationary observer C in front of the car hears frequency fc. Rank these frequencies from lowest to highest, indicate any equivalencies by using =

pressures greater than about 1.O><106 Pa, the nitrogen in air becomes dangerously poisonous. At what
depth in water does nitrogen become dangerous? (the density of the ocean—water is 1030 kg/m3). Question 3b (8 marks) Water in a main pipe at the street level is at a gauge pressure of 170 kPa and is moving with negligible
speed. A pipe connected to the main pipe is used to deliver the water to a kitchen located on the third ﬂoor of a building, at a lSm height from the street level. What is the maximum possible velocity with
which the water can emerge from an open kitchen faucet? $‘)w%‘01 (“We

spring is stretched by 10.0 cm. The student then pulls the mass down 5.0 cm from its equilibrium
position and releases it at time t = 0. Assuming that there are no damping forces, a) What is the amplitude of the motion? b) What is the frequency of the motion? 0) Assuming that the upward direction is positive, deduce the equation of motion for the
displacement, y, from the point of equilibrium. Evaluate all constants. d) What is the kinetic energy of the system at y = 3.00 cm? e) If you took two springs identical to that above and connected them in series and then hung a mass of
2.0 kg on them, how much would you stretch the combined spring? worn to ’ Stasvo w

produce a note. i) Draw the displacement diagram showing the nodes and antinodes in the tube for the ﬁlndamental
