Ch1-H2 – florin – (56950) 1 This print-out should have 30 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 7) 3.0 points A spacecraft is observed to be at loca-tion h200 m, 300 m, −400 mO relative to an origin located on a nearby asteroid, and 5 s later it is observed to be at location h475 m, 100 m, −650 mO . Find the average velocity of the spacecraft, v¯ = hv x , v y , v z O . What is v x in m/s? Correct answer: 55 m/s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: v¯ = ~r f ~r i . t Because ~r is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For v¯ x the value becomes: x = v 2 x v 1 x t = (475 m) − (200 m) (5 s) = 55 m/s 3 (part 2 of 7) 3.0 points What is v y in m/s? Correct answer: −40 m/s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: v¯ = ~r f ~r i . t Because ~r is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For v¯ y the value becomes: y = v 2 y v 1 y t = (100 m) − (300 m) (5 s) = −40 m/s 4 (part 3 of 7) 3.0 points What is v z in m/s? Correct answer: −50 m/s. Explanation: The average velocity of the spacecraft is calculated by finding the change of position over a change in time: v¯ = ~r f ~r i . t Because ~r is a vector, the average velocity will also be a vector and each component must be calculated separately. For v¯ z the value becomes: z = v 2 z v 1 z t = (−650 m) − (−400 m) (5 s) = −50 m/s 5 (part 4 of 7) 2.0 points What is |~v| in m/s? Correct answer: 84.4097 m/s. Explanation: The magnitude is calculated by: q |~v| = v x 2 + v y 2 + v z 2 q = (55 m/s) 2 + (−40 m/s) 2 + (−50 m/s) 2 = 84.4097 m/s 5 (part 5 of 7) 3.0 points
