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 12 points each; #5-7 are worth 15 points each; #8-9 are worth 18 points; #10 is worth 21 points. Physical constants and other possibly useful information (such as D, your test form letter). g = 9.80 m/s 2 1 atm = 1.01 x 10 5 Pa I = 10-12 W/m 2 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 1. Which statement is False? (A) IF you send the the same Frequency oF sound through 10°C air and through 30°C air, the wavelengths will be longer in the warmer air. (B) IF a 1-kg mass were oscillating horizontally on a spring oF stiFFness 4 N/m, a pendulum oF arm length ≈2.45 m would have about the same Frequency. (C) Simple harmonic motion can be described by either the x- or y-motion oF an object in uniForm circular motion. (D) All oF the above. (E) A and B only. (F) A and C only. (G) B and C only. (H) None oF the above. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 2. ReFer to the diagram below. At (A) Sound From A is louder than sound From C. point X, which statement is False? (B) You hear a higher Frequency From B than From D. (C) Speaker C is more powerFul than speaker D. (D) All oF the above. (E) A and B only. (F) A and C only. (G) B and C only. (H) None oF the above. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 3. ReFer to the diagram below. At (A) I B = 2 I A . point X, which statement is true? (B) b B > ( b D + 10 dB) (C) Sound From C will be twice as loud to your ears (brain) as sound From A. (D) All oF the above. (E) A and B only. (F) A and C only. (G) B and C only. (H) None oF the above. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– 4.
