PHY 201 Practice test 2 Summe r 05 1. Two billiard balls of equal mass undergo a perfectly elastic head-on collision. If one ball’s initial speed was 2.00 m s , and the other’s was 3.00 m s in the opposite direction, what will be their speeds after the collision? Let A represent the ball moving at 2.00 m/s, and call that direction the positive direction. Let B represent the ball moving at 3.00 m/s in the opposite direction. So vA 2.00 m s and vB 3.00 m s . Use Eq. 7-7 to obtain a relationship between the velocities. vA vB vA vB vB 5.00 m s vA Substitute this relationship into the momentum conservation equation for the collision, noting that mA mB . mA vA mB vB mA vA mB vB vA vB vA vB 1.00 m s vA vA 5.00 m s 2vA 6.00 m s vA 3.00 m s vB 5.00 m s vA 2.00 m s The two balls have exchanged velocities. This will always be true for 1-D elastic collisions of objects of equal mass. 2. A 95-kg fullback is running at 4.0 m s to the east and is stopped in 0.75 s by a head-on tackle by a tackler running due west. Calculate (a) the original momentum of the fullback, (b) the impulse exerted on the fullback, (c) the impulse exerted on the tackler, and (d) the average force exerted on the tackler.

A wheel of diameter of 68.0 cm slows down uniformly from 8.40 m/s to rest over a distance of 115 m. (a) What is the total number of revolutions the wheel rotates in coming to rest? (b) What is the angular acceleration? (c) How long does it take for the wheel to come to the stop? See Example 8-7 p. 202-203 4. A hollow cylinder (hoop) is rolling on a horizontal surface at speed v 3.3 m s when it reaches a 15º incline. (a) How far up the incline will it go? (b) How long will it be on the incline before it arrives back at the bottom? (a) Assuming that there are no dissipative forces doing work, conservation of energy may be used to find the final height h of the hoop. Take the bottom of the incline to be the zero level of gravitational potential energy. We assume that the hoop is rolling without sliding, so that h v R . Relate the conditions at the bottom of the incline to the conditions at the top by conservation of energy. The hoop has both translational and rotational kinetic energy at the bottom, and the rotational inertia of the hoop is given by I mR 2 . v2 Ebottom Etop 1 mv 2 1 I 2 mgh 1 mv 2 1 mR 2 2 mgh 2 2 2 2 R 3.3 m s 2 v2 h 1.111 m g 9.8 m s 2 h 1.111 m The distance along the plane is given by d 4.293 m 4.3 m sin sin15o (b) The time can be found from the constant accelerated linear motion. Use the relationship 2x 2 4.293 m x 1 v vo t t 2.602 s . v vo 0 3.3 m s 2 This is the time to go up the plane. The time to come back down the plane is the same, and so the total time is 5.2 s . 2 5. A 140-kg horizontal beam is supported at each end. A 320-kg piano rests a quarter of the way from one end. What is the vertical force on each of the supports? Let m be the mass of the beam, and M be the mass of the L L/4 piano. Calculate torques about the left end of the beam, with counterclockwise torques positive. The conditions of equilibrium for the beam are used to find the forces that the support exerts on the beam.

A mass sitting on a horizontal, frictionless surface is attached to one end of a spring; the other end is fixed to a wall. 3.0 J of work is required to compress the spring by 0.12 m. If the mass is released from rest with the spring compressed, the mass experiences a maximum acceleration of 15 m s 2 . Find the value of (a) the spring stiffness constant and (b) the mass.
