A rope has a cross section A = 8.18 m2 and
density ρ = 2270 kg/m3 . The linear density
of the rope µ, defined to be the mass per unit
length, can be written in the form µ = ρx Ay .
Based on dimensional analysis, determine
the powers x and y by choosing an expression
below.

Despite a very strong wind, a tennis player
manages to hit a tennis ball with her racquet
so that the ball passes over the net and lands
in her opponent’s court.
Consider the following forces:
1. A downward force of gravity,
2. A force by the hit, and
3. A force exerted by the air.
Which of the above forces is (are) acting on
the tennis ball after it has left contact with
the racquet and before it touches the ground?
1. 1 and 3. correct

Explanation:
The forces acting on the tennis ball after it
has left contact with the racquet are gravity
and air resistance. A force by the hit is no
longer acting on the ball.

A jet airliner moving initially at 786 mph to
the east where there is no wind moves into a
region where the wind is blowing at 414 mph
in a direction 79◦ north of east.
What is the new speed of the aircraft with
respect to the ground?

Explanation:
Which statement correctly describes the
car’s motion at point P on the graph?
Vwind
φ
1. The car is stationary.
2. The car is accelerating forward. correct
3. The car has zero acceleration.
6. The car’s direction is about 30◦ off the x
axis.
Explanation:
The graph depicts the velocity v(t) as a
function of time and NOT the position x(t).
At point P on the graph, the velocity is positive (indeed, v ≥ 0 at all times depicted on
the graph) and the curve v(t) slopes upward,
θ
Vjet
The new velocity of the aircraft is the sum
of the initial velocity and the velocity of the
wind:
4. The car is decelerating.
5. The car is climbing a hill.
V
~vf = ~vi + ~vwind = vx ı̂ + vy ̂
where
vx = vi + vwind cos φ
vy = vwind sin φ
with φ being the angle between vwind and vjet .
So the speed is

|~v | = vx2 + vy2 .

A toy cannon fires a 0.0714 kg shell with initial
Version 073 – midterm 1 v1 – shih – (58505)
velocity vi = 9.3 m/s in the direction θ = 44 ◦
above the horizontal. The shell’s trajectory
curves downward because of gravity, so at the
time t = 0.535 s the shell is below the straight
line by some vertical distance ∆h.

Thus, x = x̂ but y = ŷ − gt2 , or in other

9. 0.889232
10. 2.88262
Correct answer: 1.4025 m.
Explanation:
In the absence of gravity, the shell would fly
along the straight line at constant velocity:
x̂ = t vi cos θ ,
ŷ = t vi sin θ .
The gravity does not affect the x coordinate
of the shell, but it does pull its y coordinate
at constant downward acceleration ay = −g,
hence
x = t vi cos θ,
