Answer: TRUE 2) Two cars collide, lock bumpers and eventually slide to a stop due to friction with the roadway. During this entire process, mechanical energy and momentum are both conserved. Answer: FALSE 3) Kinetic energy is conserved only in perfectly elastic collisions, but momentum is conserved in all collisions. Answer: TRUE 4) When a moving object hits a stationary object and causes it to move, some of the moving object s kinetic energy is transformed into momentum in the object that was at rest. Answer: FALSE 7

8 5) If a force acts perpendicular to an object s direction of motion, that force cannot change the object s kinetic energy or momentum. Answer: FALSE 6) A 2.0 kg stone slides from rest down a hill 5.0 m high and is observed to be moving at 6.0 m/s at the bottom. During this process, 62 J of thermal energy have been produced.

The greatest amount of kinetic energy this mass could gain after it is released is 2.81 J. Answer: TRUE 10.3 Conceptual 1) Describe the energy transfers that take place as you use a slingshot to shoot a rock into the air, it rises to a peak, then falls, and finally hits the ground and stops without bouncing. Answer: Chemical energy in your muscles is transformed into elastic potential energy as you stretch the slingshot; the elastic potential energy changes to kinetic energy of the rock as the sling is released; the rock s kinetic energy gradually changes to gravitational potential energy as it rises and stops at its peak; the gravitational potential energy is transformed back into kinetic energy as the rock falls; the rock s kinetic energy changes to heat in the ground and the rock itself, once the rock hits the ground and stops. 2) A child does work to climb to the top of a slide, thus giving herself potential energy. Explain what has happened to all this potential energy as the child, still moving, nears the bottom of the (not frictionless) slide. Answer: Some of the potential energy she had at the top of the slide has been transformed into kinetic energy of her motion; the rest of the PE has been transformed into heat in the slide, the air, and the body of the child. 8

9 3) Particle 1 has 1 the mass of Particle 2, yet they both have the same kinetic energy. Compare the 2 momenta of two particles. Answer: Since the kinetic energies of the two particles are equal, 1 1 mv = m v or p p =, where p= mv. 2m 2m Since m = m, we see that p = p = p ) Is energy conserved during a two-car collision? Answer: It depends how one defines the system to be observed. If the system only accounts for the kinetic energies of the cars, then it is not conserved. If the system accounts for the friction and deformation of the vehicles, then it is conserved. 5) A cannon recoils after it fires a shell. If you measure the range of the shell, can you find the energy released by the gunpowder? Answer: No. During the same time it takes the shell to clear the barrel of the cannon, there are frictional forces acting on it. These are external to the components of the explosion. 6) A rubber ball is dropped from a height h above the ground. Describe the motion of the ball for many bounces if the collision is completely elastic. Answer: If the collision is completely elastic, the ball will continue to bounce to the same height h after every bounce, forever. It should be noted that this is not completely realistic, which implies that the collisions are not 100% elastic in real life. 9

10 7) A person stands on the edge of a cliff. She throws three identical rocks with the same speed. Rock X is thrown vertically upward, rock Y is thrown horizontally, and rock Z is thrown vertically downward. Assuming the elevation loss of the three rocks is the same (the base of the cliff is flat), which rock hits the ground with the highest speed? A) They all hit the ground with the same speed. B) Rock X C) Rock Y D) Rock Z 8) Joe and Bill throw identical balls vertically upward. Joe throws his ball with an initial speed of twice as high as Bill. The maximum height of Joe s ball will be A) four times that of Bill s ball. B) two times that of Bill s ball. C) equal to that of Bill s ball. D) eight times that of Bill s ball. E) roughly 1.3 times that of Bill s ball. 9) A ball can be rolled down one of four different ramps, as shown below. The final elevation loss of each of the ramps is the same. Neglecting friction, for which ramp will the speed of the ball be the highest at the bottom? A) The speed of the ball will be the same for all ramps. B) Ramp X C) Ramp Y D) Ramp Z 10

11 10) A child swings on a ball of mass m on a rope in a uniform, vertical circle of radius r at a constant speed v. How much work is done by the centripetal force on the ball during one complete revolution? Answer: The centripetal force is always directed radially inward. Since theis force is always perpendicular to the displacement of the ball, we can conclude that the centripetal force does no work on the ball. Mathematically, W = Fxcos90 = 0 11) You push a heavy box of mass m up a frictionless inclined plane of length l and height h in some time t 0. Later, you push the same box up a similar inclined plane of length l/2 and height h in the same time t 0. What can you say about the relationship between your power output(s) during these two processes? Assume the box is moved at a constant velocity in both cases. Answer: Your power output was the same in both cases. Since the inclined planes are work mgh frictionless, the total work done is W = mgh. Since Power = =, the power time t 0 is the same in both cases. 12) A pendulum in a grandfather clock swings back and forth. Does the force of gravity do positive work on the pendulum at any point in its trajectory? If so, where? Answer: The force of gravity does positive work on the pendulum while the pendulum is swinging from a high-point to a low-point in its trajectory. The work is positive in this situation because there is a displacement component directed vertically downward (in the same direction as the gravitational force). 13) Viscous friction allows oil to reduce the heating and wear of moving machine parts. But viscous friction depends on velocity. Is that a nonconservative force? Answer: Yes, whatever the functional dependence of a force to other physical quantities, the fact that the frictional effect removes energy (heat) from the moving parts classifies it as a nonconservative force. 14) Two lumps of clay are thrown at each other such that they come completely to rest after the collision. Obviously, kinetic energy is not conserved. Where did the energy go? Answer: The kinetic energy of the two lumps of clay is used up as the pieces of clay deform. Some small amounts are also converted into heat and sound. 11

12 15) If one lifts a box and walks up a couple of floors, how would the change in potential energy be accounted for? Answer: The act of lifting the box gives some gravitational potential energy to the box with respect to the floor. Walking up the stairs increases the gravitational potential of both the worker and the box, with respect to the ground floor. However, the box still has the same potential as when it was lifted, with respect to the worker s feet. 16) Three cars (car F, car G, and car H) are moving with the same velocity, and slam on the brakes. The most massive car is car F, and the least massive is car H. Assuming all three cars have identical tires, which car travels the longest distance to skid to a stop? A) They all travel the same distance in stopping. B) Car F C) Car G D) Car H 17) Two cyclists, who weigh the same and have identical bicycles, ride up the same mountain, both starting at the same time. Joe rides straight up the mountain, and Bob rides up the longer road that has a lower grade. Joe gets to the top before Bob. Which statement is true? A) Ignoring friction and wind resistance, the amount of work done by Joe is equal to the amount of work done by Bob, but the average power exerted by Joe is greater than that of Bob. B) Ignoring friction and wind resistance, the amount of work done by Joe is greater than the amount of work done by Bob, and the average power exerted by Joe is greater than that of Bob. C) Ignoring friction and wind resistance, Bob and Joe exerted the same amount of work, and the average power of each cyclist was also the same. D) Ignoring friction and wind resistance, the average power exerted by Bob and Joe was the same, but Joe exerted more work in getting there. 12

13 18) A person drops one rock from rest and it falls 100 meters down a cliff before hitting the ground. The person then throws an identical rock downward. The amount of kinetic energy gained by the rock dropped from rest is that of the second rock, and the magnitude of the change in speed (between hitting the ground and its initial speed) of the rock dropped from rest is that of the second rock. A) equal to, greater than B) equal to, equal to C) less than, less than D) equal to, less than 13
