Unformatted text preview: Online Quiz #1 This quiz must be completed by Saturday, Sept. 30 at
midnight. All work should be your own, as per the honor
code. In other words, you may use your notes but not your friends. You may retry all wrong answers once. 1. Assume there are 50 million passenger cars in the United
States, and that the average fuel consumption is
20 miles/gallon of gasoline. If the average distance
traveled by each car is 10,000 miles /year, how many
gallons of gasoline would be saved per year if average
fuel consumption could be increased to 25 miles/gallon?
A. 5x106 B. 5x107 c. 5x10B D. 5x109 E. 5x10m 2. A ball is released from rest, and it rolls down a hill
with constant acceleration. At the end of one second,
it has traveled 3 meters. How far has it traveled at the end of four seconds?
A.12m B. 16m C. 24m D. 36m E. 48m 3. A bullet is fired from a gun at ground level with a
speed of 300 m/s. It hits the ground 3 s later. At
what angle above the horizon was the bullet fired? (Ignore air resistance.)
A. 3° B. 10° c. 30° D. 45° E. 80° 4. A river flows due east at 2 m/s. A boat crosses the
BOO—meter wide river by maintaining a constant velocity
of 10 m/s due north relative to the water. If no
correction is made for the current, how far downstream
does the boat move by the time it reaches the far shore? Whole number answer 5. A baseball leaves the bat with a speed of 40 m/s and an
angle of 37° above the horizontal. A very high fence is
located at a horizontal distance of 128 meters from the point where the ball is struck. Assuming the ball
leaves the bat near ground level, how far above ground level does the ball strike the fence? Answer to one decimal place ll 55? x/oé’ .* . PFKVSICJS LH Z  #7 60WWdﬂ/S
