X 7 m3/ Phy211 Spring 2012 Syracuse University Exam 1 (9:30 am) 4. A rollercoaster car is moving along the track shown below. Assume the rollercoaster moves without
friction and therefore moves with constant speed on horizontal section of the track, speeds up on
downward sections and slows down on upward sections. a) [18 pts] At each point indicated on the track, circle a number next to a vector which gives the
best description of the direction of the total acceleration. Do not pick 1 or 5 unless the
acceleration in exactly tangent to the track and don’t pick 3 or 7 unless the acceleration is exactly
perpendicular to the track. If the acceleration is zero, circle the number 0. true (circle one): (A) The direction of velocity can only be either 1 or 5. (B) The direction of velocity can only be either 3 or 7. @The direction of velocity can only be 1. (D) The direction of velocity can be either 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8.

reaches a cliff and becomes airborne. There is a vertical wall at a distance of 30 min the horizontal
direction from the edge of the cliff. At what height below the cliff does the rock strike the wall?
