Into the page Out of the page Toward the top of the page D. Toward the bottom of the page Use the following information to answer the next question. 22.0˚ A radar pulse projected at an angle of elevation of 22.0° is reflected from an aircraft and returned. (Note: The diagram is not drawn to scale. The height of the radar transmitter/receiver can be ignored.) Numerical Response 5. If the pulse takes 1.28 × 10–4 s to make the round trip, then the vertical height of the aircraft is __________ km. (Record your three-digit answer in the numerical-response section on the answer sheet.) 11 Use the following information to answer the next three questions.

(Record your four-digit answer in the numerical-response section on the answer sheet.) *You can receive marks for this question even if the previous question was answered incorrectly. 23. An alpha particle and a proton enter a magnetic field at the same speed. The radius of the alpha particle’s path is A. B. C. D. half the radius of the proton’s path the same as the radius of the proton’s path twice the radius of the proton’s path four times the radius of the proton’s path 12 24. Which of the following expressions that deal with electromagnetic waves has a constant value? A. λ B. f C. fλ D. f /λ Use the following information to answer the next two questions. Mass spectrometers are used in archeological studies to help date ancient artifacts. The relative amounts of carbon-12 and carbon-14 isotopes in a sample of organic material may be used to determine the age of the sample. Carbon-14 is a radioactive isotope that undergoes beta decay and has a half-life of 5 730 years. 25. The product of the carbon-14 decay is A. B. 14 8O C. 10 4 Be D. 26. 14 7N 12 6C An archeological sample is dated using the carbon-14 dating process and is found to be 2 865 years old. What percentage of the original carbon-14 remains? A. B. C. D. 25.0% 29.3% 70.7% 75.0% 13 Use the following information to answer the next four questions. Physicists have produced “optical cooling” by shining a laser onto glass that contains ytterbium ions (Yb3+). The glass with ytterbium ions absorbs the laser photons and radiates photons with a shorter wavelength, as shown below. This process decreases the temperature of the glass with ytterbium ions. Laser photons Emitted photons Glass with 3+ λ = 1 008 nm Yb λ = 995 nm Temperature decrease ≈ 0.03° C One theory suggests that the cooling occurs because of electron movement between energy levels in the ytterbium ions, as shown below. If a ground state electron in an ytterbium ion absorbs a small amount of thermal energy, it moves to the second energy level (n = 2). The ion then absorbs the laser photon, which moves the electron to the excited state (n = 3). The cooling occurs when the ytterbium ion emits a photon. Excited state Laser photons λ = 1 008 nm n=3 ? Emitted photons n=2 Heat absorption Ground state n=1 14 λ = 995 nm 27. When the glass cools, the ions lose both the thermal energy and the energy that was absorbed from the laser photons. The electron energy level transition that occurs is from energy level A. B. C. D. n=3 n=3 n=2 n=2 to to to to n=2 n=1 n=1 n=3 Numerical Response 7. The frequency of the laser photons, expressed in scientific notation, is a.b × 10cd Hz. The values of a, b, c, and d are _____ , _____ , _____ , and _____ . (Record your four-digit answer in the numerical-response section on the answer sheet.) 28. The energy difference between a laser photon and an emitted photon is A. B. C.
