1.Q1) (15 points) In the diagram below, M1 = 50 Kg, M2 = 20 Kg, mass and radius of the
g and 30 cm each, respectively. Both M1 and M2 rest on frictionless surfaces and the system starts from rest.
(a) Draw the fbd for each of M1, M2 and the pulley.
(b) Write the equations of motion for each of M1, M2 and the pulley.
(c) Calculate the linear acceleration of the two masses, as well as the angular acceleration of the pulley.
(d) Calculate the angular velocity of the pulley after M1 and M2 have been displaced linearly by 2 m.
Q2) (10 points) A basketball is thrown with an initial speed v0 of 10.8 m/s at 400 above horizontal, and it enters the hoop from above. The ball is released at 2.00 m above the ground. The hoop is 3.05 m above the ground and 10.0 m away from the player.
(a) Find the time at which the ball passes through the hoop.
(b) Find the ball’s velocity (express in component form) just when it enters the hoop.
(c) Find the ball’s maximum height.
Q3) (5 Points) An object is thrown up from the top of a building of height of 400 m with an initial velocity of 20 m/s.
(a) Find the position and the velocity of the object 5 s later.
(b) With what velocity will it hit the ground?
(c) At the same time the first object is thrown up, a second object is thrown up from the ground at 100 m/s. Will the two objects collide? If yes, calculate when and where,
4.A sphere of mass M = 20kg and radius R = 10cm has its mass distributed in a way where
mediately guess it’s moment of inertia. To investigate whether it behaves more like a solid sphere or hollow sphere, you roll it down a rough ramp inclined at an angle of 30° with respect to the horizontal. The sphere rolls without slipping and you measure the velocity of the center of mass to be 3 m/s as it leaves the bottom of the ramp. The ramp’s length is 2 m and you release the sphere from the top of the ramp, a height of 1 m.
a) What is the moment of inertia of the sphere?
b) What is the angular speed of the sphere as it reaches the bottom of the ramp?
c) What is the frictional force on the sphere?
