|How large a force is necessary to stretch a 2.0-mm-diameter steel wire (Y = 2.0*10^11 N/m^2) by 1.0%?
|A fountain sends water to a height of 100 m. What must be the pressurization (above atmospheric) of the underground water system? (1 atm = 105 N/m2)
|A mass of 0.40 kg, attached to a spring with a spring constant of 80 N/m, is set into simple harmonic motion. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the mass when at its maximum displacement of 0.10 m from the equilibrium position?
|A tiny spring, with a spring constant of 1.20 N/m, will be stretched to what displacement by a 0.005 0-N force?
|An object moving in simple harmonic motion has an amplitude of 0.020 m and a maximum acceleration of 40 m/s2. What is the frequency of the system?
|A figure skater on ice with arms extended, spins at a rate of 2.5 rev/s. After he draws his arms in, he spins at 6.0 rev/s. By what factor does the skater's kinetic energy change when he draws his arms in?
|A 1.00-kg duck is flying overhead at 1.50 m/s when a hunter fires straight up. The 0.010 0-kg bullet is moving 100 m/s when it hits the duck and stays lodged in the duck's body. What is the speed of the duck and bullet immediately after the hit?
|A bucket of water with total mass 23 kg is attached to a rope, which in turn is wound around a 0.050-m radius cylinder, with crank, at the top of a well. The moment of inertia of the cylinder and crank is 0.12 kg*m^2. The bucket is raised to the top of the well and released to fall back into the well. What is the kinetic energy of the cylinder and crank at the instant the bucket is moving with a speed of 8.0 m/s?
|Of the following systems, which contains the most heat?
|Systems do not contain heat.
|A trapeze artist, with swing, weighs 800 N; he is momentarily held to one side by his partner so that the swing ropes make an angle of 30.0° with the vertical. In such a condition of static equilibrium, what is the horizontal force being applied by the partner?
|In a two-body collision, if the momentum of the system is conserved, then which of the following best describes the kinetic energy after the collision?
|may also be conserved
|If a net torque is applied to an object, that object will experience:
|an angular acceleration.
|Which of the following involves the greatest heat transfer?
|One gram of steam at 100°C changing to water at 100°C.
|A 2 000-kg sailboat experiences an eastward force of 3 000 N by the ocean tide and a wind force against its sails with magnitude of 6 000 N directed toward the northwest (45° N of W). What is the direction of the resultant acceleration?
|74° N of W
|If a glass of water is on a table with a piece of paper under it, it is relatively easy to pull the paper out without disturbing the glass very much if the pull is done very quickly. This is because, with a quick pull:
|the time for the pull will be less.
