3 Part II. Free Response anchor 0 d 2d anchor 0 6. A block of ass rests on a rough surface, and has a light spring of spring constant k and unstretched length d attached to one side as shown, with the other end of the spring attached to an anchor. There is a static coefficient of friction µ s between the surface and the block, and when the block is placed to the right at position 2d, it reains stationary on the surface.

5 iv. At what position does the block have its axiu velocity as it slides? v. What is the axiu velocity of the block as it slides?

6 A r = 20 D h = 60 C E B 7. A roller coaster car of ass = 200 kg is released fro rest at the top of a 60 high hill (position A), and rolls with negligible friction down the hill, through a circular loop of radius 20 (positions B, C, and D), and along a horizontal track (to position E). a.

9 b. A second particle, also of ass, is released fro rest at x = 8. Briefly describe the behavior of this particle. c. Sketch a graph of the conservative force that produces this potential energy curve.

10 Practice Test Solutions:. The correct answer is b. Work done by an object is calculated according to the Work forula W=F x, or W=Fx cos Ø. There are a couple of distractors in this proble: the ass of the box is not needed in the solution, and the box s constant velocity isn t required. The fact that the box is traveling at constant velocity iplies that there is friction ipeding its otion, but evidently the energy lost to friction is equal to the work being done by the force F, so that the net Work done on the box by F and F friction = 0. None of this inforation is necessary, though, to solve the proble. 2. The correct answer is a. Stateent a is false because the work done by any single agent is W = Fx cosθ. Here, with the applied Force and the displaceent of the box being in the sae direction (or cosθ = cos(0) =), the Work being done by the applied force is positive, and goes toward increasing the box's kinetic energy. Of course, the net, or overall, Work being done on the box has to include the force of Friction, which is acting in a direction opposite that of the box's displaceent. Thus, Work done by friction is negative, which has the effect of converting soe of the box's kinetic energy to internal energy via heat. 3. The correct answer is e. The wheelchair carries a total ass of 00kg up to a height of 0, with 300J of Work being done by the wheelchair each second. The tie for the total Work does is calculated as follows: P = Work tie tie = Work Power = gh P tie = (00kg)(0 /s2 )(0) 300J /s = = 33s 4. The correct answer is c. This is a conservation of energy proble, in which we exaine the relationship between the particle s potential and kinetic energies. U i + K i = U f + K f 3U = 2U 0 + v 2 2 U 0 = v 2 2 v = 2U 0 5. The correct answer is a. The potential energy stored in the spring is calculated using the Work integral: U = U = x f x i x 0 U = 2k x 4 F dx 2kx 3 dx x 4 0 = 2 kx 4

11 Practice Test Solutions: 6. a. The block isn t oving yet, so the force exerted by the spring to the left equals the force exerted by friction to the right. Vectors should be labeled and drawn with lengths proportional to their agnitude. Soe instructors wish for vectors to be drawn with their point of origin beginning at the location where that force is applied, and soe instructors prefer that force vectors be drawn originating fro the center of the (point) ass. FNoral Fspring Ffriction Fgravity b. The friction force acting on the block at this point is equal in agnitude to the force applied by the spring: F net = a c. F spring F friction = 0 F friction = kx = kd i. The coefficient of static friction is based on the axiu force of static friction that the blocksurface can support. In this case: µ static = F friction F Noral = kx g = k(2d) g ii. The potential energy stored in the spring is siply based on U spring = 2 kx 2 : U spring = 2 kx 2 U spring = 2 k(2d)2 = 2kd 2 iii. The coefficient of kinetic friction can be deterined by using a Conservation of Energy analysis, taking into account the potential energy of the ass-spring syste at the beginning and end, as well as the energy lost to heat in the block s slide: U spring initial ΔE internal = U spring final 2 kx 2 i F friction d = 2 kx 2 f 2 kx 2 i µ k gd = 2 kx 2 f 2 k(2d)2 µ k gd = 2 kd 2 µ k = 3kd 2g 20, Richard White

12 Practice Test Solutions: Note that this result reveals that µ k = 3 " 2kd% \$ ' = 3 4 # g & 4 µ x, which is consistent with the principal that coefficients of kinetic friction are less than coefficients of static friction. iv. The block has its axiu velocity where the slope of the velocity-tie curve is 0, ie. where acceleration is 0. At that position, the force fro the spring and the force of friction are equal to each other: F net = a F spring F friction = 0 kx µ k F Noral = kx µ k g = 0 where x is the displaceent of the spring fro its unstretched length at d. Substituting in µ k fro the proble before: kx µ k g = 0 " kx 3kd % \$ 'g = 0 # 2g & kx 3 2 kd = 0 7. x = 3d, relative to unstretched length at d 2 Relative to the origin: 3d 2 + d = 5 2 d v. Now that we know the position of the axiu velocity, we can use Conservation of Energy again to calculate that velocity: U s initial ΔE int = K +U s final 2 kx 2 i F friction x = 2 v2 + 2 kx 2 f # 2 k(2d)2 µ k g d & % \$ 2 ' ( = 2 v2 + 2 k # % 3 \$ 2 d & ( ' # 2 k(2d)2 3kd & % \$ 2g ' (g # d & % \$ 2 ' ( = 2 v2 + 2 k # % 3 \$ 2 d & ( ' Solve to get v = d 2 k a. This is a conservation of energy proble, with the gravitational potential energy of the car U being converted to kinetic energy K as the car rolls down the hill. U = K 2 2 gh = 2 v 2 v = 2gh = = 34.3 /s

13 Practice Test Solutions: b. At position C, soe of the car s K has converted back to U. U i = K +U f gh A = 2 v 2 C + gh C v C = 2g(h A h C ) = 2 9.8(60 20) = 28 /s c. The free-body diagra for the car includes the only two forces acting on the car: the force of gravity, and the force of the track which is providing the centripetal force that keeps the car oving in a circle (usually considered as a Noral force). FNoral Fgravity d. The velocity of the car at position D is deterined using the sae technique as in (b): U i = K +U f gh A = 2 v 2 D + gh D v D = 2g(h A h D ) = 2 9.8(60 40) =9.8 /s e. The force of the track on the car at D can be deterined by using Newton s 2nd Law of Motion to the circular otion: F c = v 2 r F track + F g = v 2 r F track = v 2 F r g Here we re considering down (toward the iddle of the circle) to be in the positive direction, and we re assuing that the force of the track and the force of gravity are both pointing down: the force of gravity is providing soe of the force to keep the car oving in a circle, and the force of the track will provide the reaining. In soe cases, however if the car is traveling very slowly, for exaple a uch saller centripetal force will required, to the point that the track has to provide an upwards force. We would realize that this was the case if we calculated a Force for the track that was negative. Continuing with our calculation: F track = v 2 F r g F track = (200)(9.8)2 20 (200)(9.8) =960N

14 Practice Test Solutions: f. i. The horizontal braking force causes the velocity of the car to decrease as a function of tie t. The integral describing the car s otion is based on applying Newton s 2nd Law of Motion: F net = a kv = dv dt dv dt = k v dv v = k dt v dv t k = v 0 v dt 0 ii. Now solve the integral for v: v dv t k = v 0 v dt 0 v lnv v0 = k t lnv lnv 0 = k t \$ ln v ' & ) = k % v 0 ( t v = e v 0 k t k v = v 0 e t 8. Potential energy can be defined only for conservative forces, and diagras are one way of describing those forces. The relationship between the conservative force acting on a particle, its displaceent, and the potential energy associated with the force is described by the equation ΔU = F x dx, or F x = du dx. a. i. By exaining the graph, the potential energy U is about 5 Joules. ii. Using Conservation of Energy: U i + K i = U f + K f 5J + 0 = 3J + 2 v 2 v = 6 = 6 2 = 2.8 /s iii. At x = 4 there is a position of unstable equilibriu. At this point, based on F x = du, there is dx no acceleration applied by the conservative force (the slope of the U curve is 0), but here, the particle will continue oving past that position, based on the fact that it has 4 Joules of K energy.

15 Practice Test Solutions: iv. The particle does reach the position x = 7, and because it still has 2 Joules of K energy, it will continue to ove to the right, even though the conservative force is no longer causing any acceleration. b. A particle released fro rest at position x = 8 will not experience any conservative force, and so will not accelerate. It will reain at that location. c. The graph of the conservative force is effectively a graph of the negative slopes of the U-x graph. Key points to ake sure are included in the Force graph are positions where U graph inflects. The Force curve should cross the x-axis at equilibriu points (at x =, 3, and 5 eters, as well as for x > 7 ). Sketch in the rest of the curve based on your interpretation of the U graph.
