Physics 7B Winter 08 Final Cover Sheet
INSTRUCTIONS:
Right now, as soon as you get this part of the exam:
1. Fill in this cover sheet completely.
2. Put your name and your DL section on each page of the exam. This is important!!!!
The pages are separated for grading!
3. Count the pages of the final exam. There should be 10 pages total with problems and
questions on pages 2 - 9. If you find this is not the case, inform the proctor
IMMEDIATELY. It is your responsibility to have a complete exam -- any missing
problems or questions will be given -0.5 points.
Remember:
*
*
You may not know the answer or immediately know what to do when you first read a question. You
are being tested on your ability to think. So think about how you can apply the general models and
methods you have learned to the particular situations discussed in the questions. *
Don’t Cheat!
We automatically report anyone suspected of cheating to Student Judicial Affairs.

1. A fluid circuit has a pipe containing water which rises a height h, and the cross sectional area decreases to
half its initial value as shown. The speed of the flow in the lower section is v1 = 10.0 m/s and the pressure is
P1 = 200 kPa. Any dissipation can be ignored.
ρw = 1000 kg/m3. Use g = 10 m/s2.
a) At which point (point 1 or point 2) is the speed of the flow
greatest and what is its value?
b) What is the greatest value h can have? Hint, the lowest value pressure can have it zero.

2. Firefighters use a hose to apply water to a fire. Such a hose is shown to
the right.
a) Why does the hose have a nozzle at the end (in other words, why does the
cross-sectional area need to be smaller at the end)? (Hint: does a firefighter
want to stand close to a fire or far from a fire?)
b) A small amount of water (approximately 1 liter) is shown at three different locations as it moves through
the hose. On the picture, draw a vector at each location showing the direction of the net force on this 1
liter of water when it is at that location. If the net force is zero then just write a 0 next to that location.

3. The figure to the right shows two circuits with a resistor with resistance R
and capacitor with capacitance C, and a switch which has been left open. In
circuit A, the capacitor is initially charged to a voltage V while in circuit B the
capacitor is initially uncharged. Circuit B also contains a battery having voltage
V. At time t = 0, the switch is suddenly closed. The graph below and to the
right shows curves for the voltage across the capacitor VC, as a function of time
for different values of V, R, C.
a) The table below shows the values of V, R, and C.and which circuit (A or B)
produced the curves in the graph. In the space beside each of these, write the
letter for the curve which it produced.

R (Ohms)

4. Consider the circuit shown in the figure to the right, in which
the battery has voltage V B and is connected across the resistor
circuit from point X to point Y. The resistors have the following
values: R1 = 32Ω, R 2 = 20Ω, R3 = 12Ω, R 4 = 24Ω. S is a switch,
and is initially in the open position as shown. The voltage across
R3 is V3 = 3V.
a) With the switch open (as drawn), find the equivalent resistance
of all the resistors in this circuit.
b) What is the voltage of the battery, VB?
c) If the switch S is closed, tell how each of the following quantities be affected and explain your reasoning:
i) The voltage across R1?
ii) The current through R2?
iii) The voltage across R3?
iv) The voltage across R4?.

5. Two students (each with a mass of 100kg) are lying in
hammocks (suspended between two posts) as shown in the
pictures to the right (θ is the angle between the cords holding
the hammock and the vertical direction). Consider a
particular hammock plus the strings holding the hammock up
plus the student in the hammock to be a single object. In this
problem you can take the gravitational field to be g = 10 N/kg.
a) Draw an appropriately scaled and labeled force diagram for each of these two objects shown in the
pictures (one force diagram in each grid below).
θ = 45°
θ = 25°
b) If the strings holding up the hammock could support any force (so they couldn’t break) would it be
possible to suspend the hammock so that the strings were both exactly horizontal (i.e. θ = 90°)? Explain.

6. A Cadillac traveling to the right and a Toyota traveling to the left with equal speeds of 20.0 m/s collide
head on and remain stuck together. The Cadillac has a mass of 2000 kg and the Toyota has 1000 kg.
a) Is this an elastic or inelastic collision?
b) Find the change in momentum of each car.
c) Find the change in velocity of each car.
d) Which car experiences the greatest average force?

7. A person must flee a burning building through a third story window. Rescuers have positioned a large
cushion below. The person drops off the window ledge, instinctively assuming a rather compact shape, and
falls for 1.5s before contacting the cushion. The cushion exerts a nearly constant force and brings the person
to rest in 0.30s.
a) Sketch three graphs, acceleration, velocity, and position, versus time from t = 0 s to t = 1.8 s. Attach
numerical values to your velocity and acceleration graphs.
b) Sketch two properly labeled and scaled force diagrams for the person, one while falling before contacting
the cushion, and the other while the cushion is bringing the person to rest.

8. A man holds his arm horizontally outstretched. His deltoid
muscle is attached to the arm at a point 15cm from the
shoulder joint and pulls on the arm in the direction indicated.
The weight of his arm is 40N and its center of mass is 30cm from the shoulder joint.
a) Determine the tangential component (Ftangential) of the force exerted by the muscle on the arm.
b) Make an extended force diagram showing the significant forces acting on the arm, with the tails of the
force vectors at the actual locations where the forces act. Your diagram need not quantify all forces, but their
approximate directions and relative magnitudes should be qualitatively correct. Briefly describe what physics
principle(s) you are applying to complete your sketch.
c) Suppose now that the person’s muscle suddenly goes completely limp, exerting essentially no force on the
arm. The person’s arm would begin to swing downward. Describe clearly how you would determine the rate
at which it would be swinging 0.1s after the muscle goes limp, indicating explicitly what quantity you would
actually be determining and specifying any additional information you would need to know. You are not
