CHAPTER 10 Conservation of Angular Momentum 1* · True or false: ( a ) If two vectors are parallel, their cross product must be zero. ( b ) When a disk rotates about its symmetry axis, w is along the axis. ( c ) The torque exerted by a force is always perpendicular to the force. ( a ) True ( b ) True ( c ) True 2 · Two vectors A and B have equal magnitude. Their cross product has the greatest magnitude if A and B are ( a ) parallel. ( b ) equal. ( c ) perpendicular. ( d ) antiparallel. ( e ) at an angle of 45 o to each other. ( c ) 3 · A force of magnitude F is applied horizontally in the negative x direction to the rim of a disk of radius R as shown in Figure 10-29. Write F and r in terms of the unit vectors i , j , and k , and compute the torque produced by the force about the origin at the center of the disk. F = - F i ; r = R j ; t = r · F = FR j · - i = FR i · j = FR k . 4 · Compute the torque about the origin for the force F = - mg j acting on a particle at r = x i + y j , and show that this torque is independent of the y coordinate. Use Equs. 10-1 and 10-7 t = - mgx i · j - mgy j · j = - mgx k 5* · Find A · B for ( a ) A = 4 i and B = 6 i + 6 j , ( b ) A = 4 i and B = 6 i + 6 k , and ( c ) A = 2 i + 3 j and B = -3 i + 2 j . Use Equ. 10-7; Note that i · i = j · j = k · k = 0 ( a ) A · B = 24 i · j = 24 k . ( b ) A · B = 24 i · k = -24 j . ( c ) A · B = 4 i · j - 9 j · i = 13 k . 6 · Under what conditions is the magnitude of A × B equal to A B ? A · B = AB sin q = A B = AB cos q if sin q = cos q or tan q = ±1; q = ±45 o or q = ±135 o . 7 · A particle moves in a circle of radius r with an angular velocity w . ( a ) Show that its velocity is v = w · r . ( b ) Show that its centripetal acceleration is a c = w · v = w · ( w · r ) . (a) Let r be in the xy plane. Then if w points in the positive z direction, i.e., w = w k , the particle’s velocity is in the j direction when r = r i (see Figure) and has the magnitude r w . Thus, v = w · r = r w j .
