Physics 1C Spring 2011: Final Exam Preparation 1 03.09.11 The following are additional questions that you may use to prepare for the final exam. You can find the answers at the end of the document, however, no solutions will be provided. Some of these may overlap with some of the quiz questions from this quarter. 1 . At the end of 14.0 minutes, 1/16 of a sample of radioactive polonium remains. The corresponding half-life of polonium is: a. λ = 0.875 minutes. b. = 3.50 minutes . c. = 1.75 minutes. d. = 1.14 minutes. e. = 4.67 minutes. 2 . A 0.20-kg block rests on a frictionless level surface and is attached to a horizontally aligned spring with a spring constant of 40 N/m. The block is initially displaced 4.0 cm from the equilibrium point and then released to set up a simple harmonic motion. What is the speed of the block when it passes through the equilibrium point? a. 2.1 m/s. b. 1.6 m/s. c. 1.1 m/s. d. 0.57 m/s . e. 0.32 m/s. 3 . How many possible subshells are there for the n = 4 level of hydrogen? a. 1. b. 2. c. 3. d. 4. e. 5. 4 . Calculate the binding energy per nucleon of carbon-12 ( 6 12 C ). Assume the mass of carbon is 11.996706u. a. 1.2 MeV/nucleon. b. 2.4 MeV/nucleon. c. 7.4 MeV/nucleon. d. 7.7 MeV/nucleon. e. 5.6 MeV/nucleon.

A ray of light in air is incident on the mid-point of a Lucite prism surface at an angle of 30.0º with the normal. For the Lucite, n = 1.50, and the prism apex angle is 60.0º (the prism is equilateral). What angle does the ray make
