Homework # 18 – Monday
10.34 a) 1.03 seconds, b) 10.3 rev
10.38 coefficient of kinetic fric= 0.312 (USE torque equation since friction provides the torque that slows it down)

Homework # 20
14.6 Guage pressure is the difference between the absolute pressure (which could include the atmospheric pressure) and the atmospheric pressure. A) P= 1.01 *10^7 Pa B) 1.0*10^7Pa
14.8 F2= 225 N
14.10 Fb= 5.88 *10^6 N F= 196 kN on each end. F= 588 kN on each side
14.12 a)20.0 cm, Use density = mass/volume ,and volume = area*height
b) Use the fact that the amount of water below the horizontal level is the same as the volume of mercury above the level. So A1*h= A2*h_below
and then use the fact that the pressure at the lowest point of water is the same as the pressure at the same level on the other side. (ALL mercury below that level). Pressure on right is just due to water above and on left is just due to mercury. Using these two equations solve for h. =0.490 cm
14.20 h1=12.6 cm similar logic as above. Call the height in the middle as some h and that will cancel out when you equate pressure on both sides. Choose a level where the liquid below that level is the same on both sides.

17.39 write two equations for observed frequency. One for approach and one for going away. Use the two equations and find the siren frequency and ambulance speed.
17.60 First step calculate the frequency that the insect hears. Who is the observer who is the source? Next step insect’s body acts as the source and reflects the sound. Calculate the frequency of the echo the bat hears. Who is the observer ?

19.16 delta A= 0.109 cm^2,
19.18 T=437oC.b)3000oC will it work? What could happen before that?
Homework 25.
19.45. Find out how much the rod contracts by and do the same for the tape. The difference is the change in the reading. So if rod contracts more by x amount, then the reading is .950x
19.46. Find out what the mass m of 10 gallons is at 0 degrees. At 20 degrees the 10 gallons (Vo) becomes some new V gallons. So V gallons at 20 degrees are m kg. so
How much mass do 10 gallons have? What is the difference between this and m?
0.523 kg.
19.50 use P1V1/T1 = P2V2/T2 .
The new volume is V1 + Ah. New pressure has increased since the compressed spring exerts a force. Find the excess pressure . = P1+ kh/A. Solve for h.= 0.169 m, P2=1.35 *10^5 Pa.
19.56. Length expands. Find new time. Find the time lost per sec. a) delta T= 9.5*10^(5) seconds. find the time lost per week. 57.5 seconds.
20.7. Is interesting! You do not know if Aluminum will rise in temperature or drop in temperature. Find the heat needed for water to go up to 26 degrees. Call it Qw. Find the heat lost by copper to come to 26 degrees. Call it Qc. If Qw >Qc then the copper cannot take the water beyond 26 degrees. So the temperature is less than 26 and aluminum cools.
If Qw<Qc, then the temperature is more than 26 degrees. So once you know what the situation is you know if aluminum gains or loses heat!
20.16, 12.9 g of steam
20.18 Temperature is 40.4 degrees. SO all ice melts. You have do show it as done in class. B) 8.04 grams melts.
