Chapter 2 Review

Problem #1:   A skater goes from a standstill to a speed of 6.7 m/s in 12 seconds.  What is the acceleration of the skater?

slide2
Step 1:   Write down the equation needed for solving for acceleration.
  • a =  vf – vi =   Δv

            t              t

  • Step 2:   Insert the known measurements into the equation.Known :  The initial speed of the skater was zero since he was not in motion.  The skater finally reached a speed of 6.7m/s in 12 seconds, which is the final speed or velocity.  The equation will look like this:

a = 6.7m/s – 0m/s = 6.7m/s =                

12s              12s

answer
Step 3:   Solve.  Carefully put all measurements into your calculator. You must solve the change in velocity portion of the equation before you can do the division portion to solve for acceleration.  Don't forget that the SI unit for acceleration is m/s2  .

SOLUTION:The skater had an acceleration of  .56m/s2 .

a = 6.7m/s – 0m/s =

12s

6.7m/s = .56m/s2

  12s

Problem #2

  • A body with an initial velocity of 8 m/s moves with a constant acceleration and travels 640 m in 40 seconds. Find its acceleration.
  • You are given intial velocity (vi), displacement (Δx), and total time(Δt), But not final velocity…choose your equations
  • Your right!! Δx= vi2Δt +1/2a(Δt)2
  • Solve for a: a= 2(Δx - vi2Δt)…plug in values

(Δt)2

slide5

Answer

  • a= 2(Δx - vi2Δt)…plug in values

(Δt)2

  • a= 2(640m – 8m/s·40s)

(40s)2

  • a = 0.4 m/s2
problem 3
Problem #3
  • A car has a uniformly accelerated motion of 5 m/s2. Find the speed acquired and distance traveled in 4 seconds from rest.
  • You know that velocity initial (vi) = 0m/s, a=5 m/s2, and total time = 4s. You need to find final velocity (vf) and displacement (Δx)
  • Choose your equation….
  • Your right!!!... Use vf=aΔt then, Δx=1/2a(Δt)2
answer7
Answer
  • Use vf=aΔt, vf= (5m/s2)(4s)=20 m/s
  • Δx=1/2a(Δt)2, Δx=1/2(5m/s2)(4s)2=40m
problem 4
Problem #4
  • A marble is dropped from a bridge and strikes the water in 5 seconds. Calculate the speed with which it strikes and the height of the bridge.
  • You are given total time(Δt)= 5s, velocity initial (vi) = 0m/s, and acceleration due to gravity a=g=9.81m/s2. You are to find velocity final (vf) and displacement Δx
  • Choose your equation….
  • Your right!!! Use vf=aΔt then, Δx=1/2a(Δt)2
answer9
Answer
  • vf=aΔt, vf= (9.81m/s2)(5s)= 49.1m/s
  • Δx=1/2a(Δt)2= ½(9.81m/s2)(5s)2= 123m
slide10

Problem #5

  • A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly to a velocity of 80 ft/s after traveling 250 ft. Find its acceleration.
  • You are given velocity initial (vi) = 0m/s, velocity final (vf)= 80 ft/s (what is this???…we don’t work in ft/s, it’s fine because your distance is given in ft. You can express your acceleration in ft/s2. The equations do not care what units you use…they will work just the same.) And displacement Δx= 250 ft
  • Choose you equation…….
  • Your right!!! vf2= 2aΔx, solve for a
  • a= vf2

2Δx

answer11
Answer
  • a= vf2

2Δx

  • a=(80ft/s)2

2(250ft)

  • a=13ft/s2
problem 6
Problem #6
  • What velocity is attained by an object which is accelerated at 0.30 m/s2 for a distance of 50. m with a starting velocity of 0.0 m/s?
  • You are given acceleration, displacement, initial velocity…you are to find final velocity (vf)…
  • Choose your equation…..
  • Your right!!! (vf)2=2aΔx
answer13
Answer
  • (vf)2=2aΔx
  • Solve for vf, vf= √(2aΔx)
  • vf= √{2(0.30m/s2)(50.m)} =5.5m/s
problem 7
Problem #7
  • If a calculator falls off the side of student desk and hits the floor 0.39 seconds later, how tall is the desk and how fast would the calculator be traveling when it hits the floor?
  • You are given total time (Δt) = 0.39s, initial velocity (vi) = 0m/s, and acceleration due to gravity a=g=9.81m/s2, you are to find displacement (Δy), and final velocity (vf)
  • Choose your equation…..
  • Your right!!!! vf=aΔt and Δy=1/2a(Δt)2We call displacement y in this problem because the motion is up and down, the direction of the y axis.
answer15
Answer
  • vf=aΔt = (9.81m/s2)(0.39s)= 3.8m/s
  • Δy=1/2a(Δt)2= ½ (9.81m/s2)(0.39s)2
  • Δy= 0.75m
problem 8
Problem #8
  • If a rocket in space is moving at a constant velocity of 9.8 m/s and then uses its propulsion system to accelerate to 10. m/s during a 3.0 minute burn, what would be the acceleration of the rocket?
  • Your are given initial velocity (vi)=9.8m/s, final velocity (vf) =10.m/s, and total time (Δt)=3.0min. We will need to convert this value into seconds to be used with velocities expressed in m/s. We need to find acceleration(a).
  • Choose your equation….
  • Your right!!!! vf = vi + aΔt
answer17
Answer
  • vf = vi + aΔt
  • Solve for a
  • a= vf - vi

Δt

Convert 3.0min to seconds

3.0min 60s = 180s

1min

  • a=(10.m/s-9.8m/s) = 1.1x10-3m/s2

(180s-0s)
