SOLUTION SET 1 Physics 2022 1. t = 14 x 10 9 years x 365.25 days/year x 24 hr/day x 60 min/hr x 60 sec/min = 4.42 x 10 17 seconds 2. a) D = d tan θ d = 0.026/2 m / tan (0.5 deg) = 1.5 m b) D = d tan θ d = 0.026/2 m / tan (0.5 deg / 60) = 89 m c) D = d tan θ d = 0.026/2 m / tan (0.5 deg / 3600) = 5360 m 3. a) θ = 1.4 deg (x 60 arcmin/deg) = 84 arcmin b) θ = 1.4 deg (x 60 arcmin/deg x 60 arcsec/arcmin) = 5040 arcsec 4. It rises 4 minutes earlier each day, so in one week it rises 7 x 4 = 28 minutes sooner, which is at 8:02 pm. 5. a)

Latitude = 40 o N Sun is at -23.5 o N Distance from the zenith is 40.0 – (-23.5) = 63.5 o Altitude from the horizon is 90.0 – 63.5 = 26.5 o 7. At 19 o north latitude the Sun is on the zenith at midday twice during the year because Mumbai’s latitude is less than 23.5 o . Problems 1, 2a, 3b, 4, and 7 are worth 1 point each. Problem 6 is worth 2 points....
