52
a. An object that is free- falling is acted upon by the force of gravity alone. TRUE - Yes! This is the definition of free fall.

53
b. A falling skydiver which has reached terminal velocity is considered to be in a state of free fall. FALSE - Skydivers which are falling at terminal velocity are acted upon by large amounts of air resistance. They are experiencing more forces than the force of gravity. As such, they are NOT free-falling.

54
c. A ball is thrown upwards and is rising towards its peak. As it rises upwards, it is NOT considered to be in a state of free fall. FALSE - Any object - whether rising, falling or moving horizontally and vertically simultaneously - can be in a state of free fall if the only force acting upon it is the force of gravity. Such objects are known as projectiles and often begin their motion while rising upwards.

55
d. An object in free fall experiences an acceleration which is independent of the mass of the object. TRUE - The unique feature of free-falling objects is that the mass of the object does not effect the trajectory characteristics. The acceleration, velocity, displacement, etc. is independent of the mass of the object.

56
e. A ball is thrown upwards, rises to its peak and eventually falls back to the original height. As the ball rises, its acceleration is upwards; as it falls, its acceleration is downwards. FALSE - The acceleration of all free-falling objects is directed downwards. A rising object slows down due to the downward gravity force. An upward-moving object which is slowing down is said to have a downwards acceleration.

57
f. A ball is thrown upwards, rises to its peak and eventually falls back to the original height. The speed at which it is launched equals the speed at which it lands. (Assume negligible air resistance.) TRUE - If the object is truly in free-fall, then the speed of the object will be the same at all heights - whether its on the upward portion of its trajectory or the downwards portion of its trajectory.

58
g. A very massive object will free fall at the same rate of acceleration as a less massive object. TRUE - The acceleration of free-falling objects (referred to as the acceleration of gravity) is independent of mass. On Earth, the value is 9.8 m/s/s (the direction is down). All objects - very massive and less massive - experience this acceleration value.

59
h.The value of g on Earth is approximately 9.8 m/s 2. TRUE - Yes! Know this one!

60
i.The symbol g stands for the force of gravity. FALSE - Nope. g is known as the acceleration of gravity. It might be best to call it the acceleration caused by gravity. When it comes to the force of gravity, we have yet another symbol for that - F grav.

26. Consider drops of water that leak from a dripping faucet at a constant rate. As the drops fall they ____. a. get closer together b. get farther apart c. remain at a relatively fixed distance from one another SP1a,b

64
26. Consider drops of water that leak from a dripping faucet at a constant rate. As the drops fall they ____. a. get closer together b. get farther apart c. remain at a relatively fixed distance from one another Since the drops of water are falling (and probably free-falling), they should be getting farther apart as they fall. This is because the free-falling drops are accelerating and thus gaining speed. SP1a,b

70
29. The average speed of an object which moves 10 kilometers (km) in 30 minutes is ____. a.10km/hr b.20km/hr c.30km/hr d.more than 30km/hr The average speed is distance/time. In this case the distance is 10 km and the time is 0.5 hr (30 minutes). Thus average speed = (10 km)/(0.5 hr) = 20 km/hr SP1a,b

71
30. As an object freely falls, its ____. a. speed increases b. acceleration increases c. both of these d. neither of these SP1a,b

72
30.

77
33. Ima Rilla Saari is cruising at 28.0 m/s down Lake Avenue and through the forest preserve. She notices a deer jump into the road at a location 62.0 m in front of her. Ima first reacts to the event, then slams on her brakes and decelerates at m/s 2, and ultimately stops a picometer in front of the frozen deer. What is Ima's reaction time? (i.e., how long did it take Ima to react to the event prior to decelerating? SP1a,b

78
33. Ima's total distance traveled (62.0 m) can be broken into two segments - a reaction distance (d rxn ) and a braking distance (d braking ). The reaction distance is the distance Ima moves prior to braking; she will move at constant speed during this time of t rxn. SP1a,b

79
33. The braking distance is the distance which Ima moves when her foot is on the brake and she decelerates from 28.0 m/s to 0.0 m/s. The braking distance can be computed first using the following kinematic equation: v f 2 = v o 2 + 2*a*d. The known information for this braking period is: v o = 28.0 m/s; v f = 0 m/s; and a = m/s/s. SP1a,b

80
33. v f 2 = v o 2 + 2*a*d. The known information for this braking period is: v o = 28.0 m/s; v f = 0 m/s; and a = m/s/s. d braking = (v f 2 - v o 2 ) / (2*a) = [(0 m/s) 2 - (280 m/s) 2 ] / (2 * m/s/s) = m SP1a,b

81
33. Since Ima's car requires m to brake, she can travel a maximum of 13.6 m during the reaction period. The relationship between reaction time, speed and reaction distance is given by the equation d rxn = v * t rxn SP1a,b

82
33. d rxn = v * t rxn Substituting 13.6 m for d rxn and 28.0 m/s for v, the reaction time can be computed: t rxn = (13.6 m) / (28.0 m/s) = s SP1a,b

Only an upwards accelerating object requires an upwards force. SP1f SP1a,b

85
34 c. After reaching a terminal velocity, the falling skydiver then opens a parachute. When the terminal velocity was reached, F a = F g. Then the parachute was opened, making Fair even greater than before. This is represented by the larger arrow. SP1f

86
34 d. An air track glider is gliding to the right at constant velocity. There is no rightwards force. A rightwards force would only be required if there is a rightwards acceleration. If the glider is gliding; there is no mention of it being pushed or pulled (F app ) and if there is a constant velocity, there must be balanced forces. SP1f

87
34 e. A car is skidding to a stop while traveling to the right. There is no rightwards force. A rightwards force would only be required if there is a rightwards acceleration. If the car is skidding (wheels are locked), friction acts in a direction opposite its motion to slow it down. SP1f SP1a,b

88
34 f. A downward moving elevator (held by a cable) slows down. The cable supplies the tension force. Since the elevator is moving downwards and slowing down, there must be more upwards force than the downwards gravity force. SP1f SP1a,b

89
34 g. A 25.0-N force is applied at a 30-degree angle to a crate in order to accelerate it rightward across a rough, horizontal surface. The applied force is upwards and rightwards. Its upward component contributes to the upwards F n to balance the force of gravity. (Note the relative size of F n.) SP1f SP1a,b

90
34 h. A picture hangs symmetrically by two wires oriented at angles to the vertical. The force exerted by a wire is a tension force. With two wires, there would be two upwards- pulling tension forces. The down force is gravity. SP1f

52. According to Newton's third law, every force is accompanied by an equal and opposite reaction force. The reason that these forces do not cancel each other is ____. a. the action force acts for a longer time period b. the two forces are not always in the same direction c. one of the two forces is greater than the other d. the two forces act upon different objects; only forces on the same object can balance each other. e.... nonsense! They do cancel each other. Objects accelerate because of the presence of a third force SP1a,d

149
52. Answer: D Action and reaction forces always act upon the interacting objects for the same amount of time with the same magnitude. So if object A pushes on object B, then object B simultaneously pushes on object A with the same amount of force. The force on object B will be one of perhaps many forces which will govern its motion. But the reaction force is on object A and cannot contribute to object B's motion since it is not acting upon object B. Action-reaction forces can NEVER cancel each other. SP1a,d

53. As you sit in your chair and study your physics (presuming that you do), the force of gravity acts downward upon your body. The reaction force to the force of the Earth pulling you downward is ___. a. the force of the chair pushing you upward b. the force of the floor pushing your chair upward c. the force of the Earth pushing you upward d. the force of air molecules pushing you upwards e. the force of your body pulling the Earth upwards f.... nonsense! Gravity is a field force and there is no such reaction force. SP1a,d

151
53. Answer: E The most common wrong answer is a - the force of the chair pushing you upward. As you sit in your chair, the chair is indeed pushing you upward but this is not the reaction force to the force of the Earth pulling you downward. The chair pushing you upward is the reaction force to you sitting on it and pushing the chair downward. So if the Earth pulls you downward, then the reaction force is you pull the Earth upward.
