PHYSICS 2210 – EXAM 1 FALL 2016

Each multiple choice question is worth 2 points, questions 4 – 7 are worth 6 points each, and question 8 is worth 10 points. Your
work must be shown on problems 4 - 8 in order to receive credit for these problems. Be sure to include appropriate units on your

1. At the instant t = 1 s, is the speed of A greater than, less than, or equal to the speed of B?

a. The speed of A is less than the speed of B.

b. The speed of A is greater than the speed of B.
c. The speed of A is equal to the speed of B.

2. A pilot drops a package from a plane flying horizontally at a constant speed. Neglecting air resistance, when the package
hits the ground the horizontal location of the plane will
a. depend on the speed of the plane when the package was released.
b. be behind the package.
c. be over the package.
d. be in front of the package.

3. Two identical objects A and B fall from rest from different heights to the ground and feel no appreciable air resistance. If
object B takes TWICE as long as object A to reach the ground, what is the ratio of the heights from which A and B fell?
a. hA/hB = 1/8
b. hA/hB = 1/√2
c. hA/hB = 1/4
d. hA/hB = 1/2

4. A small child gives a plastic frog a big push at the 5. A particle moving horizontally has an acceleration
bottom of a slippery (frictionless) 2.0-m-long ramp inclined at described by the function a = (10 −t) m/s2, where t is in
35ᵒ to the horizontal, starting it with a speed of 5.6 m/s. seconds. Its initial velocity is zero. At what time is the
What is the frog's speed as it flies off the top of the ramp? velocity again zero?
6. You walk 55 m to the north, then turn 60° to your 7 A ball rolls across a floor with an acceleration of
right (east of north) and walk another 45 m. How far are you 0.100 m/s2 in a direction opposite to its velocity. The ball has
from where you originally started? a velocity of 4.00 m/s after rolling for 1.5 s across the floor.
What was the initial speed of the ball?

8. A hiker throws a stone from the upper edge of a vertical cliff. The stone's initial velocity is 25.0 m/s directed at 40.0° with
the face of the cliff, as shown in the figure. The stone hits the ground 3.75 s after being thrown and feels no appreciable air
resistance as it falls.

a. What is the height of the cliff?

b. How fast is the stone moving just before it hits the ground?


1. b
2. c
3. c
4. 2.98 m/s
5. 20 s
6. 86.7 m
7. 4.15 m/s
8. 141 m, 58.2 m/s
