(a) 9—f=%= 52.9 km/h (b) x — 90.0 km (see above) 2.2 (a) In the first half of the trip, the average velocity is v = (X2 — x1)/ 20.0 s -= +50.0 m/20.0 s - +2.50 m/s (b) On the return leg, we have v = (X3 - X2)/22.0 s - (0 - 50.0 m)/22.0 s = - 2.27 m/s (c) For the entire trip, 17 = (X3 - x1)/42.0 s = 0/42.0 s - 0 2.3 (a) Boat A requires 1 h to cross the lake and 1 h to return, total time 2h. Boat B requires 2 h to cross the lake at which time the race is over, Boat B being on the other side of the lake or 60 km from the finish . (b) Average velocity is the displacement of the boat divided by the time required to accomplish the displacement The winning boat is back where it started, its diSplacement thus being zero yielding a zero average velocity. x 84 x 10'2 m 2.4 =—-——-—-‘ = . 4 = . 7 t v 3.5 x 10-6 5 24x10 8 66 h 9 min 21 s _ 60 min/h + 3600 s/h ' 1156 h . 385 yd . and 26 miles + 1760 yd/mile = 26.22 miles Thus, the average speed is 26.22 miles/2.156 h = 12.2 mph. 2.5 211+ 2.6 2.7 2.8 2.9 2.10 2.11 mfimm (a) V0,1==(X]_ — x0)/(At) -= (4.0 m- 0)/1.0 s = +4.0 m/s (b) V0’4 = (X4 - xo)/At= (—2.0 m» 0)/ 4.0 s = - 0.5 m/s (c) v15 = (X5 - x1)/At= (0 - 4.0 m)/4.0 s = - 1.0 m/s (d) v05 = (xs - xo)/At= (0 - 0)/5.0 s = 0 (a) The time for the faster car is 10 miles/70 mph -— 0.14 h, or 8.57 min. The time for the slower car is 10 miles/55 mph = 0.18 h or 10.9 min. The difference in time is 2.34 min. (b) When the faster car has a 15.0 min lead, it is ahead by a distance equal to that traveled by the slower car in a time of 15.0 min. This distance is given by: x= vt-= (55 0 mi/h)(15 0 mix—M) = 13 3 mi. ’ ‘ 60.0 min ' The faster car pulls ahead of the slower car at a rate of: Vrelauve = 70.0 mph - 55.0 mph = 15.0 mph. Thus, the time required for it to get 13.8 mi ahead is: x 13.8 mi ts Vrelative _ 15-0 Eli/h 0.92011 Finally, the distance the faster car has traveled during the time it is gainmg' a 13.8 mi lead is given by: X: Vt .. (70.0 mi/h)(0.920 h) = 64.4 mi. The distance traveled by the space shuttle in one orbit is 21c(Earth's radius + 200 miles) = 2::(3963 + 200) = 26,1563 miles . . . 26156.9 miles and so the required time IS —_—“—19800 miles/h= 1.32 h The total time for the trip is t= t1 + 22.0 min = t1 + 0.367 h, where I1 is the time spent traveling at 89.5 km/h. Thus, the distance traveled is x= v t= (89.5 km/h)t1 = (77.8 1cm/h)(t1 + 0.367 h) or, (89.5 km/h)t1 = (77.8 km/h) t1 + 28.5 km From which, :1 - 2.44 h for a total time of t”= t1 + 0.367 h - 2.81 h. Therefore, x= l7 t= (77.8 km/h)(2.81 h) = 218 km (a) The speed of the tortoise is Vt ——- 0.1 m/s, and the speed of the hare is Vh .. 20x0.1 m/s= 2.0 m/s. Xt=Xh + 0.2 m vtt= vh( t- 120 s) + 0.2 In, or (0.1 m/s)t= 2.0 m/s(t- 120 s) + (0.2 m). From which, t= 126 s. (b) xt= Vtt= (0.1 m/s)(126 s) = 12.6 m Let It be the maximum time to complete the trip. I total distance 1 1600 m 1 km/h t' needed average speed ' 250 km/h 0.278 m/s The time spent to complete the first half, q, is t half distance 800 m 1 km/h _1251& 1 = vlave 230 km/h 0273 m/s - -= 23.02 5. Thus, the maximum time that can be spent on second half of the trip is I: .. tt - t1 = 23.02 s - 12.51 s = 10.51 s, and the required average speed on the second half is 2.16 2.17 2.18 2.19 2.20 2.21 2.22 2.23 2.24 CHAPTER TWO SOLUTIQNS = (—2.0 In — 4.0 m)/1.5 s = -6.0 W15 3 = -4.0 m/s (c) V(t=3 s) =2 [X(t= 4 s) - x(t= 2.5 s)]/(4.0s - 2.5 s) = (—2.0m -(-2.0m))/ 1.5 s = 0 (d) V(t=4.5 s) = {x(t= 5 s) -x(t=4s)]/(5 s-4s) = (0 — (—2.0 m))/1.0 s = + 2.0 m/s From the definition of acceleration, Av == amt) = (0.80 m/sz)(2.0 s) = 1.6 m/s. From this, the final velocity is Vf = 7.0 m/s + 1.6 m/s = 8.6 m/s The average acceleration is found as a =-AV/A t- (+8.0 m/s - 5.0 m/s)/(4.0 s) = 0.75 m/sz. — - I - I a= AV/At= WC ms 100 m/s =-1.5x103 m/sZ 12 x 10'3 s _ __n_11_'(0.447 m/s) . v1=55 h (1 [Di/h) =24.58m/s, and by the same method, Vf = 26.82 m/s. Thus; Av = 2.24 m/s, and from the definition of acceleration At= AV/a = (2.24 m/s)/ (0.6 m/sz) = 3.73 s. (a) am to 5 s) = AV/At= (0 -0)/5.0 s = 0 3(5 s to 15 s) = (+8.0 m/s - (-8.0 m/s))/(10.0 s) = +1.6 m/sZ. 3(0 to 20 s) = (+8.0 m/s -(—8.0 m/s))/20.0 s = +0.80 111/32. (‘0) At t== 2 s, the slope of the tangent line to the curve is 0. At t= 10.0 s, the slope of the tangent line is +1.6 m/sz. At t = 18.0 s, the slope of the tangent line is 0 (a) The average acceleration can be found from the curve, and its value will be a=Av/At= (16 m/s)/ 2.0s=+ 8.00m/sz. (b) The instantaneous acceleration at t = 1.5 3 equals the slope of the tangent line to the curve at that time. The line will have a slope of about +11.0 m/sZ. From v2 - v02 + 23x, we have (10.97 x 103 m/s)2 =0+ 2a(220 m), so that a = 2.74 x 105 m/s2 which is 2.79 x 104 times g! (a) From the definition of acceleration, we have V_‘KQ_0_-_M/_§_ 2 a“ t ‘ 5.0s "3'0W5' (b) From x= v0t+%at2 , we have x = (40 m/s)(5.0 s) + % (-8.0 m/32)(5.0 s)2 = 100111. v- VQ_0-100 tn/s (a) t 3 _ -5 W52 (b) x=9r+(z—‘”2—VQ)1=10%2’5"—020s=1000m=1.0m Therefore, the minimum distance to stop exceeds the length of the runway, so it cannot land safely. =205 11 EME—Two §6__‘Lunous 2.35 The initial velocity of the train is Vi = 82.4 km/h = 22.9 m/s and the final velocity is Vf = 16.4 km/h — 4.56 m/s. We also know that Ax= if It, so t-A—f‘ and ix =V—i-+2—Vf— = 13.73 m/s. v _400_m _ Therefore, t= 13.73 m/s — 29.1 s. 2.36 (a) Take t= 0 at the time when the first player starts to chase the second player. At this time, the second player is 36 m in front of the first player. Let us write down x= vot+ % at2 for both players. For the first player, we have X1 =Vot+ % at2 = 0+% (4 m/sz)t2, (1) and for the second player, X2= Vet-i- % at2 = (12 m/s)t+ 0 (2) When the players are side-by—side, x1 =xz + 36 m (3) From Equations (1), (2), and (3), we find r2 - 6t-18 = 0. The roots of this equation are t= - 2.2 s and t= + 8.2 s. We must choose the 8.2 5 answer since the time must be greater than zero. (b) AX1= V01t+%a1 :2 =0+ % (4 m/s2)(8.2 s)2 = 134m 2.37 (3) Use vz-V02+2aywith v-O. We have 0 = (25.0 m/s)2 + 2(-9.80 m/s2)ym This gives the maximum height, ym, as ym = 31.9 m. (b) The time to reach the highest point is found from the definition of 0 - 25.0 m/s_255$ (-9.8 m/sz) ' (c) From the symmetry of the motion, the ball takes the same amount of time to reach the ground from its highest point as it does to move from the ground to its highest point. Thus, t- 2.55 s. (d) We can use v= vo+ at, with the position of the ball at its highest point as the Origin of our coordinate system. Thus, v0 = O, and t is the time for the ball to move from its maximum height to ground level. This was found in part (c) to be 2.55 s. Thus, v=0 + (-9.80 m/s2)(2.55 s) = -25 m/s. acceleration as t= 2.38 Use y=voyr+%a:2 , or -76.0m=0+%(-9.80 m/s2)t2. This givest=3.94s 2.39 (a) After 2.00 s, we find that v= V0+ gt= -1.50 + (—9.80)2.00 = -21.1 m/s, so the speed is 21.1 m/s. 2 (b) Using X= vot+ gg- we have the distance the ball falls in 2.00 s as IQ, = (-1.50)(2.00) + (-9.80)(2.00)2/2 = - 22.6 In, and the distance the helicopter moves is Xc = (~l.50 m/s)(2.00 s) = - 3.0 m. Therefore, the mailbag is {-22.6 m) - (— 3.0 m) = — 19.6 m below the helicopter after two seconds. (c) Here we have after 2.00 s, v- v0 + gt: +1.50 + (-9.80)(2.00)2/2 = -18.1 m/s, or a speed of 18.1 W8 14 ...

    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.
