3. E. Power is in units of (energy)/(time); 1 Watt = 1 Joule/s. So A, B and D are all Watts (1 Joule = 1 Newtonmeter). 1 eV = 1.6 1019 J, so C is also energy per second. (Recall that electric work is qV .) E is not

energy/time.

4. C. Newtons First Law: Fnet = ma, so M1 a1 = M2 a2 or

M1

a2

=

M2

a1

Thats the best that can be done here because F is unknown.

5. C. Galileo I: v = vo + at = vo gt. The slope is constant and negative, equal to g.

6. B. Galileo IV: 2ax = v 2 vo2 , so

10. E. The maximum velocity occurs when the displacement from equilibrium is zero; there the energy is all kinetic.

A and B describe the same positions (the endpoints); there the energy is all potential. C also describes the

endpoints. Halfway between equilibrium and the amplitude the mass-spring system has both kinetic and

potential energy. All the energy is kinetic at x = 0, the equilibrium point.

11. E. An application of Keplers Third Law;

r3

GM

T

If you know both r and T , you can find the mass M . Alternatively, use the satellite equation (for a circular

orbit, which may or may not be true):

Fnet =

mv 2

GM m

GM

=

v2 =

r

r2

r

For a circular orbit, v = 2r/T , so you recover Keplers Third Law (which is true even for elliptical orbits,

with a, the ellipses semimajor axis, replacing the radius r.)

12. C. Angular momentum is conserved because there are no external torques; momentum is conserved because

there are no external forces (like a peg to which the rod might be attached). The kinetic energy could be

conserved, but it isnt absolutely required to be. But p and L must be conserved.

13. E. This probably requires a diagram. Consider a passenger in the elevator as shown:

Newtons Second Law says FN mg = ma or FN = mg + ma. Clearly the normal force FN will be least

13. contd

when the acceleration is negative (when the elevator is nearing its destination at an upper floor.) The normal

force will be greatest at the beginning, when the elevator and passengers need to be accelerated upwards; in

the middle of the trip, the elevator is coasting (and the normal force equals the weight); at the end of the trip,

the elevator accelerates down, to reduce the speed of the elevator and passenger to zero. The acceleration is

most negative around t = 6 s; when the velocity graph has a tangent whose slope is most negative.

14. D. A standard problem: a = g sin k cos and FN = mg cos . Here, there is no friction, so a = g sin .

15. D. If the final kinetic energy K 0 equals one-fourth of the initial K, then

K 0 = 12 mv 0 2 = 14 K =

1

4

12 mv 2

which means v 0 = 21 v. But the direction is reversed after hitting the wall, so

v0 = 12 v

Hard to know why the exam didnt use any sort of vector notation; an arrow on top of the variable, bold

type, something... (as in questions 27 and 34.)

16. C. The parametric set C has v = (vx , vy ) = (dx/dt, dy/dt) = (A, B). The acceleration is dv/dt = (0, 0).

17. E. Neither set A nor set B have an acceleration constant in direction. From question 16, set C has a equal

to zero. The only options are D and E. The acceleration in D is constant; a = (2A, 2B). The velocity

in D is (dx/dt, dy/dt) = (2At, 2Bt); at t = 0 this is zero. Now, one could argue that the zero vector is

perpendicular to all vectors (it has, after all, a zero dot product with every vector.) If so, D would suffice.

But a better choice is E. Its acceleration a = (0, 2B) is constant and clearly perpendicular to the initial

velocity, vo = (A, 0).

18. A. Set A clearly describes uniform circular motion, in which the speed is constant and the acceleration is

non-zero but constant in size.

19. E. See question 14;

a = g sin k g cos

If the acceleration is zero (the skier is traveling with constant velocity) then

g sin = k g cos

k = tan

20. E. There are a couple of ways to do this. The most straightforward is to recall the definition that power is the

rate at which work is done. The work done is the change in kinetic energy;

W = K = K 0 K = 21 (2000 kg)(20 m/s)2 = 0.4 MJ

The time required to deliver this work is the time the car spends accelerating from rest to 20 m/s;

t =

Then

P =

20 m/s 0

3 m/s

0.4 MJ

= 6 104 W

Alternatively, use the formula P = F vavg = mavavg = 2000 kg 3 m/s 10 m/s = 6 104 W.

21. E. After the person has walked to the other end, the situation must be the mirror image of this one; the center

of mass will be shifted to a distance d to the left of the center of the raft. But the center of mass cannot

move as the person walks on the boat. Therefore, the boat must have moved a distance 2d to the right.

(This elegant solution comes from Zach Reneau-Wedeen, Lab School 10).

ma = mg kv

(taking the positive direction as downward.) But a = dv/dt, so

m

dv

= mg kv

dt

dv

dt

=

mg kv

m

Integrate both sides with respect to v and t and youre done. Note, however, the differences between answers

A and B: The limits in A are fine. In B they describe the wrong variable. Talk about fine print...

23. E. This problem and the next are two of the most challenging Ive encountered on the C Mechanics exam. The

key is that t is not zero: The velocity remains zero for a few moments. During this non-instantaneous

interval, the acceleration also must be zero; otherwise, the velocity would change. By Newtons Second Law,

the net force must be zero;

Fnet = T mg = ma = 0

Then, as well need for the next question, T = mg.

24. B. There is an associated, famous problem about dropping a spool (with the cord held by a motionless hand).

In that case, you write Newtons Second Law for the forces

Fnet = mg T = ma

and for the torques,

= T R = I = I(a/R)

where one associates a with acm . Then T = Ia/R2 and

ma = mg Ia/R2

a=

mg

m + (I/R2 )

The problem here is, of course, that the center of mass acceleration is zero. In fact you have to think a little

more carefully. The typical relationship for rolling without slipping, a = R, still holds, but now it is the

tangential acceleration of the rim, which is equal to the upward acceleration of the cord (and the hand.)

Generally in rolling without slipping (on a horizontal surface, for example), the rims acceleration is the same

as the center of masss; that isnt true here. Here, the center of mass doesnt move at all during the time

interval t. But we can still say, with a the acceleration of the rim (equal to the acceleration of the hand),

= T R = I = I(a/R)

From the previous problem, we know T = mg. Then

mgR = I(a/R) = 21 mR2 (a/R) = 21 maR

Cancel mR on both sides, multiply both sides by 2 and obtain a = 2g. Unsurprisingly, 90% of those who

took the test got this one wrong.

25. C. The angular momentum cannot change, because there are no external torques. On the other hand, we have

the useful formulas

L2

p2

and K =

K=

2m

2I

As the skaters arms come in, I, which depends on the square of the average distance of mass from the axis,

is getting smaller. Since the kinetic energy depends directly on the square of the angular momentum and

inversely on the moment of inertia, and I here decreases, it follows K increases. Also, work has to be done

to draw the arms in; this work goes into increased kinetic energy.

26. E. A variation on the theme of question 25. Now set p2 = 2mK. If p1 = p2 , then p21 = p22 , and

2m1 K1 = 2m2 K2

m2

K1

=

K2

m1

27. B. The acceleration a = F/m = 0.5t/5 = 0.1 t. To find the velocity at time t = 4 s, integrate:

4

Z

v4 vo = v4 =

0.1 t dt =

0

1 2

20 t

16

20

= 0.8 m/s

because vo = 0.

28. D. Momentum is conserved. The initial momentum is m v + 2m (v) = mv in the x-direction. In A, the

final momentum has no x-component. In B and C it has a non-zero y-direction. E has its x-component to

the right. The answer has to be D.

29. E. The projectile motion equation for the y-component of the objects position is

y = yo + vo sin t 21 gt2 = vo sin t 21 gt2

Set this equal to zero and solve for t;

0 = t(vo sin 12 gt) t = 0 or t =

2vo sin

g

The object leaves the ground at t = 0; it hits the ground at the later time.

30. E. The centripetal force is Fc =

Then

mv 2

. This is the force provided by the string; Fc = Fs . But v = r = 2f r.

r

Fc =

m(2f r)2

= 4 2 f 2 mr

31. C. When the object is dropped,

Etop = mgh

and when it hits the ground, Ebottom =

the second case,

1

2

2 mv1 .

2gh. In

2gh = 2mgh

32. E. The key is that the center of mass cannot move. Imagine putting the masses on a seesaw, and the pivot at

the triangle. In A, B, C and D, its clear that the seesaw would not balance at the pivot. In E, though,

it might; youve got twice as much mass at half the distance (horizontally), and the masses are symmetric

about the x-axis.

33. A. For circular orbits,

Fnet =

34. D. As t , the speed v 0 exponentially (the problem is just like air resistance, but without the driving

effect of gravity.) The position increases so long as the velocity is positive, but as the velocity tends to zero,

the position tends to a limiting value; the appropriate values are shown by D.

35. B. For the mass not to fall, the net force in the y-direction must be zero. That is,

mg = fs s FN

For the mass to move in a circle, the net force in the x-direction must be Fcentrip ; this force is provided

uniquely by the normal force:

mv 2

Fnet, x = FN =

R

Substituting this into the previous equation gives

mg s

or

g s

mv 2

R

= s 2 R

R

2 R

which is answer B.

Discussion

There are many admirable questions on this test: questions 13 (elevator and graph), 21 (person walking on boat)

and 34 (air resistance) are simultaneously very physical but require at least some mathematical reasoning. A

number of questions are elementary (the first six are nothing a reasonably good AP Physics B student couldnt

answer; only about ten require techniques or concepts beyond the B syllabus). A handful (24, 30 and 33) were

easy to get wrong, either from inherent difficulty or from algebraic intricacy. At some point, though, what is

being tested by a problem like 33 is not physical understanding but algebraic technique; maybe this is not the

best sort of problem on a physics test. In question 22, answer B with the switched limits is a little petty (but at

least it wasnt put first, at A, where students in a hurry might well have chosen it without reading on to a correct

answer at B.) Nothing on elliptical orbits, calculation of moments of inertia (parallel axis theorem, say, or simple

integration) or pendulums, but on the whole a very comprehensive and fair examination.
