1 Problem Set 1 Solutions Chapter 1: Representing Motion Questions: 6, 10, 1, 15 Exercises & Problems: 7, 10, 14, 17, 24, 4, 8, 44, 5 Q1.6: Give an example of a trip you might take in your car for which the distance traveled as measured on your car s odometer is not equal to the displacement between your initial and final positions. Reason: The distance you travel will be recorded on the odometer. As you travel, the distance you travel accumulates, is recorded by the odometer, and is independent of the direction of travel. Your displacement is the difference between your final position and your initial position. If you travel around a 440 m track and end up where you started, you have traveled 440 m; however, since you ended up where you started, your change in position and hence displacement is zero. Assess: If you watch a track meet, you will observe the 440-m race. As you watch the race, it is obvious that the runners travel a distance of 440 m (assuming they complete the race). Yet since they end up where they started, their final position is the same as their initial position and hence their displacement is zero. Q1.10: Two friends watch a jogger complete a 400 m lap around the track in 100 s. One of the friends states, The jogger s velocity was 4 m/s during this lap. The second friend objects, saying, No, the jogger s speed was 4 m/s. Who is correct? Justify your answer. Reason: Since the jogger is running around a track, she returns to her starting point at the end of the lap. Since her final position is the same as her initial position, her displacement is 0 m. Velocity is defined as displacement in a given time interval velocity time interval So her average velocity is 0 m/s! However, though her displacement is 0 m, the actual distance she traveled is 400 m. Her average speed is not zero, since speed is defined in terms of distance, not displacement. Her average speed is then 400m 100s distance traveled in a given time interval speed time interval 4m/s. The second friend is correct. Since the motion of a runner is not uniform we can only calculate average velocity and average speed. Assess: This problem illustrates a very important difference between speed and velocity. Speed depends on total distance traveled. Velocity depends on displacement, which only takes into account the starting and ending points of a motion. Q1.1: A skydiver jumps out of an airplane. Her speed steadily increases until she deploys her parachute, at which point her speed quickly decreases. She subsequently falls to earth at a constant rate, stopping when she lands on the ground. Draw a motion diagram, using the particle model, that shows her position at successive times and includes velocity vectors. Reason: The initial velocity is zero. The velocity increases and the space between position markers increases until the chute is deployed. Once the chute is deployed, the velocity decreases and the spacing between the position markers decreases until a constant velocity is obtained. Once a constant velocity is obtained, the position markers are evenly spaced. See the following figure. 1

2 Assess: Knowing the velocity of the jumper will increase until the chute is deployed and then rapidly decrease until a constant decent velocity is obtained allows one to conclude that the figure is correct Q1.15: A car is driving north at a steady speed. It makes a gradual 90 0 left turn without losing speed, then continues driving to the west. Draw a motion diagram, using the particle model, showing the car s velocity vectors as seen from a helicopter hovering over the highway. Reason: Assess: The car (particle) moves at a constant speed v so the distance between the dots is constant. While turning v remains constant, but the direction of v changes. P1.7: Foraging bees often move in straight lines away from and toward their hives. Suppose a bee starts at its hive and flies 500 m due east, then flies 400 m west, then 700 m east. How far is the bee from the hive? P1.7. Prepare: We have been given three different displacements. The problem is straightforward since all the displacements are along a straight east-west line. All we have to do is add the displacements and see where we end up. Solution: The first displacement is x1 = 500 m east, the second is x2 = 400 m west and the third displacement is x = 700 m east. These three displacements are added in the figure below. 2

3 From the figure, note that the result of the sum of the three displacements puts the bee 800 m east of its starting point. Assess: Knowing what a displacement is and how to add displacements, we are able to obtain the final position of the bee. Since the bee moved 1200 m to the east and 400 m to the west, it is reasonable that it would end up 800 m to the east of the starting point. P1.10: The figure shows the motion diagram for a horse galloping in one direction along a straight path. Not every dot is labeled, but the dots are all equally spaced instants of time. What is the horse s velocity a. During the first ten seconds of its gallop? b. During the interval from 0 s to 40 s? c. During the interval from 50 s to 70 s? P1.10. Prepare: We can use Equation 1.2 to calculate the horse s velocity at the different times. Solve: Since the dots are spaced at equal intervals of time, and there is one dot between the time 10 s and 0 s, the spacing between the dots indicate a 10 s time interval. The dot between 10 s and 0 s will mark a time of 20 s. The horse is moving to the left, as time increases to the left, so the rightmost dot must be at 0 s. We will use the definition of velocity in Equation 1.2, v x/ t. Looking at Figure P1.10, it should be noted that you can t determine the distance information to better than 10 m and certainly not to 1 m. As a result 100 m has two significant figures (you know it is between 90 m and 110 m) and 50 m has one significant figure (you know it is between 40 m and 60 m). For this reason the answer to part (b) should have only one significant figure. (a) Referring to the Figure P1.10 in the text, xf 500 m, xi 600 m, tf 10 s, ti 0 s, so x 500 m 600 m 100 m v 10 m/s t 10 s 0 s 10 s (b) Here, xf 00 m, xi 50 m, tf 40 s, ti 0 s, so x 00 m 50 m 50 m v 5 m/s t 40 s 0 s 10 s (c) In this case, xf 50 m, xi 250 m, tf 70 s, ti 50 s, so x 50 m 250 m 200 m v 10 m/s t 70 s 50 s 20 s Assess: Displacement and velocities are signed quantities. Since the x-axis increases to the right and the horse is traveling to the left, we should expect all the velocities to be negative. P1.14: Convert the following to SI units: a s b..42 km c. 44 cm/ms d. 80 km/hour

4 e. P1.14. Prepare: We first collect the necessary conversion factors: 1 s = 10 6 s; 1 km = 10 m; 1 m = 10 2 cm; 1 h = 60 min; 1 min = 60 s. f. Solve: 6 10 s 6 g. (a) 9.12 s (9.12 s) s 1s h. (b) i. (c) 1km 10 m.42 km (.42 km).4210 m 2 cm 10 m 1ms 2 44 cm/ms m/s ms 1cm 10 s km 10 m 1h 2 h 1km.610 s j. (d) 80 km/h m/s k. Assess: The conversion factors are applied in such a manner that we obtain the desired units. Scientific notation is used and the answer has no more significant figures than the starting number. P1.17: List the following three speed in order, from smallest to largest: 1 m per ms, 1 km per ks, 1 cm per ms. P1.17. Prepare: We are to rank order three speeds given in different units. The obvious strategy is to convert units so they are all the same. To make the comparison we could use any set of speed units (such as furlongs per fortnight) including any set of the given units. However, for practice in converting units we will convert them all to m/s. Solve: 6 mm mm 1 m 110 s m s s 110 mm 1s s km km 110 m 1 ks m ks ks 1 km 110 s s ms ms 110 cm 1s s cm cm 1 m 1 10 ms 1 m 2 The order from smallest to largest, then, is 1 km/ks, 1 cm/ms, and 1 mm/µs. Assess: This problem helps develop intuition about the relative sizes of the length units, which combined with the time units to give speed units. The fastest speed was obtained by travelling a very small distance (1 mm) in an even smaller time (1 µs). P1.24: Estimate the average speed with which the hair on your head grows. Give your answer in both m/s and m/h. Briefly describe how your arrived at this estimate. P1.24. Prepare: My barber trims about an inch of hair when I visit him every month for a haircut. The rate of hair growth thus is one inch per month. We also need the conversions 1 in = 2.54 cm, 1 month = 0 days, 1 day = 24 h, 1 h = 600 s, 1 cm = m, and1m 10 m. Solve: The rate of hair growth is 2 1(in) 2.54 cm 10 m 1 month 1d 1 h (month) 1in 1 cm 0 d 24 h 600 s m/s 6 9 m 10 m 600 s m/h s 1 m 1 h Assess: Since we expect an extremely small number for the rate at which our hair grows per hour, this figure is not unreasonable. P1.4: Interpret the problem by drawing a motion diagram (do not solve the problem). In a typical greyhound race, a dog accelerates to a speed of 20 m/s over a distance of 0 m. It then maintains this speed. What would be a greyhound s time in the 100 m dash? 4

5 P1.4. Prepare: Since the dog accelerates for 0 m, the position dots will be successively farther apart and the velocity vectors will increase for this part of the race. After the dog reaches its top speed (at 0 m), the position dots are uniformly spaced and the velocity vectors are all the same length. Solution: Assess: While the dog is accelerating, the dot spacing and the velocity vector must increase, and they do. While the dog is traveling at a constant speed the dot spacing and the velocity vector must remain the same, and they do. P1.8: Interpret the problem by drawing a motion diagram (do not solve the problem). The giant eland, an African antelope, is an exceptional jumper, able to leap 1.5 m off the ground. To jump this high, with what speed must the eland leave the ground? P1.8. Prepare: Since the eland has a positive velocity and a negative acceleration, the velocity will decrease to zero and the spacing between the position dots will decrease. The velocity vector at each position on the way up has the same magnitude but opposite direction as the velocity at each position on the way down. Solve: Assess: On the way up, the velocity vector decreases to zero as it should and the spacing between the position dots decreases as it should. The magnitude of the velocity vector at any position is the same on the way up as it is on the way down. This allows us to conclude that the figure is correct. P1.44: Write a one or two sentence story about a real object that has this motion diagram. Your story should talk about people or objects by name and say what they are doing. 5

6 P1.44. Prepare: Knowing the dots represent the position of an object at equal time intervals and the vectors represent the velocity of the object at these times, we can construct a situation to match the motion diagram. Solve: A bowling ball is at rest at the top of an incline. You nudge the ball giving it an initial velocity and causing it to roll down an incline. At the bottom of the incline it bounces off a sponge and travels back up the incline until it stops. Assess: The statement that you give the ball an initial velocity is consistent with the fact that the start position dot has a velocity vector. The statement that the ball rolls down the incline is consistent with the fact that the dots are getting farther apart and the velocity vectors are increasing in length. The statement that the ball bounces off a sponge is consistent with the fact that ball does not bounce back to its original position. P1.5: Motor neutrons in mammals transmit signals from the brain to skeletal muscles at approximately 25 m/s. Estimate how much time in ms (10 s) it will take for a signal to get from your brain to your hand. P1.5. Prepare: Knowing the speed the signal travels (approximately 25 m/s) and estimating distance from you brain to your hand to be about 1.0 m, we can determine the transmission time. Some unit conversion will be required to get the answer in ms. Solve: The transmission time for the signal may be determined by distance 1 m 10 ms t 40 ms speed 25 m/s s Assess: When you touch something very hot, it takes a fraction of a second to remove your hand. Keeping in mind, that in this case the signal must make a round trip, the answer, while very small, seems reasonable. 6
