1 I. A mechanical device shakes a ball-spring system vertically at its natural frequency. The ball is attached to a string, sending a harmonic wave in the positive x-direction. +x a) The ball, of mass M, moves up and down 80 cm from its equilibrium position 2 times each second, and the wave travels down the string 1.2 m in each period of the oscillator. Write a function that describes the vertical displacement along the string for any time t. Include numeric values in your expression for all of the quantities that you know, and explain your reasoning. y(x,t) = b) The ball in part (a) is replaced by a ball of mass 4M which is attached to the string, and the mechanical device is tuned to the natural frequency of the new ball-spring system. What will the period, frequency and wavelength of the travelling wave be in this case? period = frequency = wavelength = c) Use a dashed line to draw the traveling wave that generated by the 4M oscillation on the axes below. The wave generated with the 1M mass is shown for reference. +x

2 II. A pipe of length 0.5 m is closed at one end and open at the other. Sound is created in the pipe at four different frequencies. The diagram shows the location of nodes (N) and antinodes (A) in the pipe for the four different modes. The table to the right has an entry for wave speed of the fifth harmonic. requency Wavelength Wave speed 340 m/s 0.5 m a) Complete the table, and please explain your reasoning in the space below. b) Write a function that describes the wave pattern of the third harmonic. Assume that the origin is at the left side of the tube and that the wave has an amplitude of 0.1 m. Include numeric values in your expression for all of the quantities that you know, and please explain your reasoning. y(x,t) =

3 III. A constant force of 1.5 N is exerted perpendicular to the edge (pointing into the paper on the diagram below) of a 5kg-disk (r=0.3 m) causing it to rotate about its fixed axis. The steady force is applied when the disk is at rest, and removed after 9.0 s. a) ind the angular momentum of the disk after 9.0 s. b) How much work was done by this force on the disk as the disk was sped up from rest to its final angular velocity? c) A 0.4 kg lump of clay is dropped straight down on the spinning disk halfway between the center and the edge. How fast does the disk spin after the clay has been dropped?
