1/ (20 pts) To stretch a spring 3.00 cm from its unstretched length, 12.0 J of work must be done.
(a) What is the force constant of this spring?
(b) What magnitude force is needed to stretch the spring 3.00 cm from its unstretched length?
(c) How much work must be done to compress this spring 4.00 cm from its unstretched length and what
force is needed to stretch it this distance?
2/ (20 pts) A particle with mass m is acted on by a conservative force and moves along a path given by x =
Acost and y = Bsint, where A, and B are constants.
(a) Find the components of the force that acts on the particle.
(b) Find the potential energy of the particle as a function of x and y. Take U = 0 when x = 0 and y = 0.
(c) Find the total energy of the particle when x = A.
3/ (30 pts) A 60.0-kg skier starts from rest at the top of a ski slope 65.0 m high.
(a) A frictional forces do 10.5 kJ of work on her as she descends. How fast is she going at the bottom of the
(b) Now moving horizontally, the skier crosses a patch of soft snow. where k = 0.20. The patch is 82.0 m
wide and the average force of air resistance on the skier is 160 N. How fast is she going after crossing the
(c) The skier hits a snowdrift and penetrates 2.5 m into it before coming to a stop. What is the average force
exerted on her by the snowdrift as it stops her?
4/ (20 pts) A 28-kg rock approaches the foot of a hill with a speed of 15 m/s. This hill slopes upward at a
constant angle of 40.0o above the horizontal. The coefficients of static
and kinetic friction between the hill and the rock are 0.75 and 0.20, respectively.
(a) Use energy conservation to find the maximum height above the foot of the hill reached by the rock.
(b) Will the rock remain at rest at its highest point, or will it slide back down the hill?
(c) If the rock does slide back down, find its speed when it returns to the bottom of the hill.
