Physics 1C Spring 2011: Quiz 1 Version A 1 01.06.11 Closed book. No work needs to be shown for multiple-choice questions. 1 . Consider a mass on a spring that is undergoing simple harmonic motion. In this simple harmonic motion system, the magnitude of the acceleration is greatest when: a. the displacement is maximum. b. the displacement is zero. c. the speed is maximum. d. the force is zero. e. the speed is exactly half of its maximum value. 2 . In an engine, a piston oscillates with simple harmonic motion so that its position varies according to the expression: x(t) = (7.5 cm) cos(4.0 t + π /2), where x is in centimeters and t is in seconds. At t = 0 seconds, the magnitude of the velocity of the piston is: a. zero. b. 7.5 cm/s. c. 30 cm/s. d. 120 cm/s. e. 0.21 cm/s. 3 . A pendulum consists of a massive bob at the end of a string (as shown to the right). If the mass of the bob is doubled, what happens to the period of the pendulum? a. The period of the pendulum will decrease.

    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.
