1) A mass on a string is swung in a vertical circle at a constant speed. The string will break if the tension in the string exceeds a critical value. At what part of the circle is the string most likely to break, and why?

Answer: The string is most likely to break at the lowest point in the circular path, because the tension in the string is greatest at this point. This follows from Newton’s Second Law:

* =* T – mg at the lowest point ⇒ T = + mg at the bottom of the arc.

- B) The force of friction needs to be twice as large.
- C) The force of friction is the same for both speeds since the radius of curvature is the same.
- D) None of the above

Answer: A

Var: 1

6) If there is no such thing as a centrifugal force, why does someone in a car making a turn feel as if he or she is being pulled toward the outside of the curve?

Answer: The car is making a turn, but the person in the car is __not__ part of the car. According to Newton’s First Law, you will move in a straight line until acted on by an outside force – thus, you move in a straight line while the car turns (at least until you run into the door. At this time, the car exerts a force on you, causing your direction of motion to change.).

Var: 1

7) Explain, from a force standpoint, why you need to reduce your normal driving speed around curves when it rains.

Answer: In order to safely negotiate a curve at a given velocity, frictional forces between the tires and the road must be large enough to provide the necessary centripetal force.

The coefficient of friction μ decreases when it rains, so the frictional force decreases.

Var: 1

8) How is it possible for someone to remain in her seat (without any straps) while upside down on a loop-the-loop roller coaster?

Answer: If the velocity of the roller coaster car is sufficiently large at the top of the loop, the person (and car) will remain on the track. For lower speeds, the normal force on the person goes to 0 before she reaches the top, meaning that she comes out of the seat.

(This follows from N = – mg.)

Var: 1

9) Astronauts in orbit are weightless, but they are not beyond the pull of Earth’s gravity. How can this be?

Answer: Astronauts in orbit are moving in uniform circular orbits; the centripetal force is provided by gravitational attraction. The net force experienced by an astronaut is 0, thus the astronaut is weightless. (The astronaut is in a continual state of free fall while in orbit.)

Var: 1

10) Can a satellite be in an elliptical orbit under uniform circular motion?

Answer: No. A satellite in an elliptical orbit would experience tangential acceleration. By definition, a satellite under uniform circular motion can have no tangential acceleration component. Therefore, its orbit can only be a circle.

Var: 1

11) If I set the car cruise control at a certain speed and take a turn, the speed will remain the same. So, why am I accelerating?

Answer: If you observe a car actually performing this maneuver, you will notice that the tires will skid at high speeds, or the car will bank in one side. This means that the car is actually accelerating, it is changing the one-dimensional speed to a two-dimensional velocity. But the speedometer cannot detect it. If you had a gyroscope on board, as airplanes do, it would register an acceleration.

Var: 1

12) In uniform circular motion we have an acceleration and the speed doesn’t change. But in projectile motion the speed does change under constant acceleration. Why are they both classified as uniform acceleration phenomena?

Answer: Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Respecting this definition means that we observe the entire velocity vector’s behavior. Speed is only a constituent of velocity, therefore observing only the speed gives a partial and sometimes misleading picture of the physical phenomena. The fact is that in both cases the acceleration vector is uniform in a particular framework (coordinate system).

17) If an astronaut were exactly half way between Earth and the Moon, the net gravitational force exerted on the astronaut by these two objects would be

- A) directed toward Earth.
- B) zero.
- C) directed toward the Moon.

Answer: A

Var: 1

18) For astronauts in space, there is no atmosphere to slow their orbit. Why don’t they just fly away to the moon?

Answer: The astronauts were initially placed there by a capsule or shuttle. Therefore they have the same speed as the craft. If the craft was launched with enough energy to make a certain orbit, the extra energy must be gotten elsewhere. If the astronaut pushes hard enough on the craft, he will convert part of the work into kinetic energy and fly away. The problem is that to cover the distance in some kind of realistic time travel, he would have to push harder than a Titan.
