Unformatted text preview: Oregon State University PH 202 Winter Term 2012 Midterm Exam 1 (Wednesday, January 25, 7:00 p.m.) GENERAL DIRECTIONS: Fill out the cover sheet completely , as indicated—including your test form letter, which is C. Follow the specifc directions on each page o¡ the answer ¡orm . Use standard SI units unless directed otherwise; use three signifcant digits in all fnal numerical answers. Questions #1-4 are worth 8 points each; #5-7 are worth 10 points each; #8-9 are worth 12 points; #10 is worth 14 points. Physical constants and other possibly useful information V sphere = (4/3) p r 3 V cylinder = p r 2 h V cube = s 3 g = 9.80 m/s 2 1 atm = 1.01 x 10 5 Pa r water = 1000 kg/m 3 r Hg = 13,600 kg/m 3 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 1. Three blocks are placed in a tub (A) Block 2 has the largest buoyant Force acting on it. with water (see bottom oF page). (B) Block 1 must be more dense than block 2. The blocks have volumes V 1 , V 2 (C) Block 1 must have more mass than block 2. and V 3 . Only blocks 1 and 2 ¡oat, (D) All oF the above. and V 1 < V 2 < V 3 . Which is False? (E) A and B only.

(A) Archimedes’ Principle states that the buoyant Force is the ¡uid pressure exerted on the underside oF any part oF any object immersed in that ¡uid. (B) Pascal’s Principle states that pressure is the same throughout any body oF incompressible ¡uid. (C) Bernoulli’s equation equates the mechanical energy density oF any two points in a steady ¡ow oF incompressible ¡uid. (D) All oF the above. (E) A and B only. (¢) A and C only. (G) B and C only. (H) None oF the above. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 3. Which statement is False? (A) A manometer can indicate negative gauge pressure. (B) IF a barometer is 2 m tall, its ¡uid must have a density less than water. (C) Gauge pressure is never more than absolute pressure....
