10 DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: conservation DIF: L2 OBJ: SHORT ANSWER 51. ANS: The kinetic energy of the golf ball suddenly increases as the club strikes it. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: kg m 2 /s 2 = ( kg m/s 2 ) m = N m = J DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: kinetic energy and potential energy DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: Sled B; it has less mass. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: Stretch it or compress it. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: visible light DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: because the thermal energy of an object is the kinetic and potential energy of its particles DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: Accept either of the following: The potential energy of stored water is converted into kinetic energy as the water falls; as the falling water does work on the turbine, it moves the turbine s blades (KE). The KE of the rotating blades is converted into electrical energy by the generator. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: The elastic potential energy of the bent bow and string is converted into kinetic energy of the arrow. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: fission and fusion

11 DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: Accept any two of the following: fossil fuels, such as oil, coal, and natural gas; uranium. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: Accept any two of the following: hydroelectric, solar (passive, active), geothermal, wind, biomass, nuclear fusion (future source). DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: Accept either of the following: The resource can be replaced in a relatively short period of time. The resource originates either directly or indirectly from the sun. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: Biomass energy is the chemical energy stored in living things. The chemical energy is produced as plants convert sunlight in the form of electromagnetic energy into chemical energy. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: The refrigerator uses less energy due to its efficiency, so over time, the total cost may be lower. DIF: L1 OBJ: PROBLEM 66. ANS: DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: decreased by 10 J = 10 J DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: DIF: L2 OBJ:

12 ESSAY 70. ANS: Biomass energy is energy that is available immediately from the chemical energy stored in living organisms. Biomass is classified as a renewable energy resource. Fossil fuels also contain chemical energy but were formed over a long period of time from once-living organisms. Fossil fuels are classified as nonrenewable energy resources. DIF: L2 OBJ: OTHER 71. ANS: 5 J; because the block gained 5 joules of energy, the spring had to do 5 joules of work on the block. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: elastic potential energy DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: The elastic potential energy of the spring has decreased. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: The block s kinetic energy would be less. Some of the elastic potential energy of the compressed spring would be converted into thermal energy due to friction. As a result, less of the springs s elastic potential energy would be converted into kinetic energy of the block. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: The block s kinetic energy has increased. DIF: L1 OBJ: ANS: C DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: The gravitational potential energy of the ball is the same at both locations; the height is the same. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: No; since the ball is always moving to the right between locations A and F, at every point between A and F, the ball has kinetic energy. Because the ball has kinetic energy at each point, it has some mechanical energy at each point. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS:

13 No; because the ball does not reach the same height each time it bounces, its maximum gravitational potential energy is decreasing from one bounce to the next. Because its gravitational potential energy decreases and its maximum kinetic energy does not increase, the total mechanical energy must be decreasing. DIF: L2 OBJ: ANS: The kinetic energy is less before the second bounce. Since its gravitational potential energy is zero each time it strikes the floor, its kinetic energy equals its total mechanical energy. Because the total mechanical energy has decreased with the first bounce, its kinetic energy has decreased as it strikes the floor just before the second bounce. DIF: L2 OBJ:
