Practicing: Scenarios Scenario #3: Cavorting Crustaceans Copepods are small, abundant crustaceans that form a significant percentage of the ocean’s biomass. One species forms much of the diet of herring. To escape capture, these copepods have evolved a very rapid escape response; typical speed vs. time data is shown in the graph at right. From 0.10 to 0.20 s, rapid swimming motion results in a thrust force that gives a large acceleration; from 0.20 to 0.40 s, the large drag force on this small animal (assume a mass of 1.8 mg) slows it to rest. In what follows, we’ll make the approximation that the drag force works like a kinetic friction force—it opposes the motion and has a constant magnitude as long as the creature is in motion. Speed (m/s) 0.80 0.60 0.40 0.20 0.10 0.20 0.30 0.40 Time (s) Multiple Choice Questions (3 points): 5) When the copepod is speeding up, what is the approximate magnitude of the acceleration? A. 7 m/s2 B. 14 m/s2 C. 20 m/s2 D. 30 m/s2 6) What is the approximate distance the copepod travels during the entire escape response, including both phases, the speeding up and the slowing down? A. 10 cm B. 20 cm C. 30 cm D. 40 cm Speed (m/s) 0.80 0.60 0.40 0.20 0.10 0.20 0.30 0.40 Time (s) Short Answer Question (6 points): Given that the copepod is floating in water, the upward buoyant force offsets the downward weight force. There are only two forces you need consider, thrust and drag. Draw force and motion diagrams for both phases of the motion: the speeding up and the slowing down. Now, compute: • What is the magnitude of the drag force while the copepod is slowing down? • What is the magnitude of the thrust force while the copepod is speeding up? How do these forces compare to the creature’s weight? Scenario #2: Lifting a Load Jordan is using a rope and pulley to raise a 20 kg crate, as in the diagram at right. The crate is being held at a constant height of 2.5 m above the floor. Multiple Choice Questions (3 points): 3) With the crate held at a constant height, what is the approximate tension in the rope? A. 50 N B. 100 N C. 150 N D. 200 N 4) Suddenly the rope breaks, and the crate falls to the floor. After the break, how much time does it take for the crate to reach the floor, to the nearest 0.1 s? A. 0.4 s B. 0.5 s C. 0.6 s D. 0.7 s Short Answer Question (6 points): Jordan now attaches a rope to the crate that can support a tension of up to 250 N—but no more. What is the minimum time required to raise the crate from the floor back to its original height? Scenario #4: Marsupial Motion A gray kangaroo bounding across a flat stretch of ground will execute a series of jumps, moving in a series of parabolic arcs. The following problem uses typical data for a kangaroo moving at a good clip. With each jump, the kangaroo leaves the ground at a speed of 12 m/s, at an angle of 20° with respect to the horizontal. The kangaroo then moves through the air. When the kangaroo lands, the vertical component of the velocity points downward. A short time later, the stout legs of the kangaroo have reversed this vertical motion. The kangaroo’s vertical motion is now upward, and the kangaroo leaves the ground again. The horizontal component of the velocity stays the same while the kangaroo is on the ground and in the air, so the kangaroo is bouncing up and down, but is moving forward at a steady speed. This particular kangaroo is female, and has a 0.51 kg baby—called a joey—supported in her pouch. Multiple Choice Questions (3 points): 7) At the highest point of her motion, what are the kangaroo’s vertical velocity and vertical acceleration? A. vy = +4.1 m/s; ay = 0 m/s2 B. vy = 0 m/s; ay = 0 m/s2 C. vy = 0 m/s; ay = -9.8 m/s2 D. vy = -4.1 m/s; ay = -9.8 m/s2 8) The kangaroo has landed, and her vertical speed is changing. At some instant, her vertical speed is zero, but her acceleration is upward at 30 m/s2—as is that of the joey. What is the joey’s approximate apparent weight at this instant? A. 5 N B. 10 N C. 15 N D. 20 N Short Answer Question (6 points) After the kangaroo leaves the ground, how far does she travel before reaching the ground again? Human vs. Horse How do humans stack up vs. horses in track events? Horses are faster, but humans are capable of greater acceleration. A typical running speed for a fast horse is 20 m/s, much faster than a human, but the horse can only accelerate at 6.0 m/s2, about half what a good human runner can achieve. Humans are also better jumpers; the world record broad jump for a human is about 9.0 m, while that for a horse is only 7.5 m. Multiple Choice Questions (3 points): If a horse starts from rest and accelerates at the maximum value until reaching its top speed: 1) How much time does this acceleration take, to the nearest second? A. 1 s B. 2 s C. 3 s D. 4 s 2) How much distance does the horse cover during this time, to the nearest 10 m? A. 10 m B. 20 m C. 30 m D. 40 m Short Answer Question (6 points) When humans do a long jump, they get up to top speed and then redirect their motion so that it has a vertical as well as a horizontal component. Horses can’t do this nearly as well as humans. Suppose a horse, running a top speed, could redirect its motion so that it took off at a 30° angle with respect to the horizontal, moving in a parabolic trajectory until landing. The horse could then do a jump that is much longer than 7.5 m! For this theoretical jump, • For how much time would the horse be in the air? • At the high point of its motion, how high would the horse be? • How much horizontal distance would the horse cover?
