Explanation: Let : m 1 = 800 kg , v 1 = 100 km / h , m 2 = 2110 kg , and v 2 = 44 . 8 km / h . m 2 v 2 p 2 p 1 m 1 v 1 p f = m f v f θ N During the collision, the total momentum of the two car system will be conserved: vectorp f = vectorp 1 + vectorp 2 = m 1 vectorv 1 + m 2 vectorv 2 p fx ˆ ı + p fy ˆ = m 1 v 1 ˆ + m 2 v 2 ˆ ı. Looking at the x and y components of mo- mentum, p fx = m 2 v 2 = (2110 kg) (44 . 8 km / h) × parenleftbigg 10 3 m km parenrightbiggparenleftbigg 1 h 3600 s parenrightbigg = 26257 . 8 kg m / s , and p fy = m 1 v 1 = (800 kg) (100 km / h) × parenleftbigg 10 3 m km parenrightbiggparenleftbigg 1 h 3600 s parenrightbigg = 22222 . 2 kg m / s . Since we are asked to find the angle from the y-axis instead of the x , tan θ = p fx p fy = 26257 . 8 kg m / s 22222 . 2 kg m / s = 1 . 1816 θ = arctan parenleftbigg 26257 . 8 kg m / s 22222 . 2 kg m / s parenrightbigg = 49 . 7584 ◦ . 002 10.0 points A hanging wire made of gold with diameter . 09 cm is initially 2 m long and a cubic atomic Version 012 – Midterm 01 – florin – (56930) 2 structure. When a 62 kg mass is hung from it, the wire stretches an amount 1 . 13 cm. A mole ( N A = 6 . 02 × 10 23 atoms) of gold has a mass of 197 g / mol, and its density is 19 . 3 g / cm 3 . Use g = 9 . 8 m / s 2 . Based on these experimental measure- ments, find the approximate value of the effec- tive spring stiffness of one interatomic bond in gold. 1. 46.7481 2. 54.6406 3. 66.3317 4. 40.2155 5. 51.9423 6. 60.4593 7. 41.8459 8. 43.4275 9. 40.9284 10. 42.5678 Correct answer: 43 . 4275 N / m. Explanation: Let M be the weight of the mass hung from the wire, let d be the diameter of the wire, and let l and x be the original length of the wire and the amount by which it stretches, respectively. The tension in the wire is equal to the weight of the hanging mass, since the wire’s mass is negligible. Therefore, using the definition of Young’s modulus, and letting Y = F A L Δ L = 4 M g π d 2 l x = 4(62 kg)(9 . 8 m / s 2 ) π (0 . 09 cm) 2 parenleftbigg 2 m 1 . 13 cm parenrightbigg = 1 . 69042 × 10 11 N / m 2 ....
