The speed v4m of the larger piece immediately after explosion is:
(A) v4m = (1/4)v0
(B) v4m = v0
(C) v4m = (5/4)v0
(D) v4m = 5v0.
MC3: A mass m = 450 g oscillates from a vertically hanging light spring with a period of 0.55 s. It
started by being compressed 10 cm from the equilibrium position (where y = 0) and released. How
long will it take to get to the equilibrium position for the first time?
(A) 0.14 s
(B) About 0.28 s (one-half period)
(C) 0.55 s
(D) The mass will never reach equilibrium.
MC4: A damped harmonic oscillator involves a block of mass m = 2 kg, a spring with k = 10 N/m, and
a damping force with damping constant b = 0.1 kg/s. Initially it oscillates with amplitude of 20 cm.
After four complete cycles the amplitude falls to:
(A) 5 cm
(B) 10 cm
(C) 12.5 cm
(D) 15 cm
MC5: A boat is moored in a fixed location, and waves make it move up and down. If the spacing between wave
crests is 20 m and the speed of the waves is 5 m/s, how long does it take the boat to go from the top of a crest
to the bottom of...
