UIC PHYSICS 105 Spring 2012 Practice Exam 3 Page 2 of 7 MULTIPLE CHOICE (3 points each) Clearly circle the letter of the best answer. No points are deducted for incorrect answers. MC1: If Martian Orbiter I is sailing around the planet in a circle which has an orbital radius nine times that of Martian Orbiter II, who’s speed is v 2 , what is the speed of Martian Orbiter I? (A) v 1 = (1/9) v 2 (B) v 1 = (1/3) v 2 (C) v 1 = v 2 (D) v 1 = 3 v 2 MC2: A satellite moves around the Earth in a circular orbit of radius r with speed v 0 . Suddenly, an explosion breaks the satellite into two pieces, with masses m and 4 m . Immediately after the explosion the smaller piece of mass m is stationary with respect to the Earth and falls directly toward the Earth. The speed v 4 m of the larger piece immediately after explosion is: (A) v 4 m = (1/4) v 0 (B) v 4 m = v 0 (C) v 4 m = (5/4) v 0 (D) v 4 m = 5 v 0 . 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
