Unformatted text preview: gravity mg = ρV g = A(0.5 m)g downward, and the buoyancy force Fb = ρf Vd g = ρf (A(0.3 m))g upward. Thus at equilibrium ρA(0.5)g = ρf A(0.3)g =⇒ ρ = (1000 kg/m3 ) 3 (b) 0.3 = 600 kg/m3 0.5 B Suppose I use the same wood to make a block which is twice as wide. Which of the following pictures shows the way this new block will float? (A) same as above (B) 0.5m (C) 1m The level at which a block floats depends on density, not mass or volume. Page 10 21. Water flows through a pipe which widens from a crosssectional area of AL = 0.1 m3 to a cross-sectional area of AR = 0.4 m3 . The water enters the pipe moving at vL = 4 m/s. The pressure of the water as it leaves the pipe is PR = 105 Pa. 3 (a) A A) 1 m/s AR=0.4m3 AL=0.1m3 vL = 4 m/s PR = 105 Pa The speed of the water vR as it leaves the pipe is B) 2 m/s C) 4 m/s D) 8 m/s E) 16 m/s The flux Φ = Av must be the same at both ends. 3 (b) Find the pressure PL of the water as it enters the pipe, ignoring the effects of viscosity. 12 12 PL + ρvL = PR + ρvR 2 2 12 2 PL = PR + ρ(vR − vL ) 2 1 = 105 Pa + (1000 kg/m3 )((1 m/s)2 − (4 m/s)2 ) 2 = 105 Pa − 7500 Pa = 92500 Pa 3 22. Answer one of these two questions, or both for extra credit. (a) B Planet X has twice the radius of Earth and twice the mass of Earth. What is the acceleration due to gravity g on Planet X? A) 2.5 m/s2 B) 4.9 m/s2 C) 9.8 m/s2 D) 19.6 m/s2 E) 39.2 m/s2 M (so that R2 F = mg ). If we double M and double R, we end up with half the g we had before. The force on an object on the surface of a planet is F = G M m , so g = G R2 (b) A satellite orbits the Earth at an altitude of r above the Earth’s center. Write an expression for the satellite’s velocity v , in terms of the Earth’s mass M . The Earth’s gravity is the centripetal force which keeps the satellite orbiting: Mm mv 2 = r2 r GM =⇒ v 2 = =⇒ v = r G GM r which is about 70% of the escape velocity at that altitude (by the way).

It starts at rest, and then a 30 N force is applied to the top of the wheel. What is the angular velocity ω of the disk after the disk has made one complete revolution? 30N 5kg There are several ways to do this: by calculating the angular acceleration α and using kinematics, or by using angular momentum. I’m going to use energy here. The torque exerted on the wheel is τ = rF = (2 m)(30 N) = 60 N · m, and it is applied over one complete revolution, or an angular displacement ∆θ = 2π . Thus the work done by the force is W = F ∆θ = (60 N · m)(2π ) = 120π This work is energy which goes into kinetic energy, and so after one revolution 120π J = = = =⇒ ω 2 = =⇒ ω = 12 Iω 2 11 ( M R2 )ω 2 22 1 (5 kg)(2 m)2 ω 2 4 120π = 24π 5 √ 24π = 8.7 rad/s Page 12 2m...
