Acceleration 14E. Sketch a graph that is a possible description of position as a function of time for a particle that moves along the x axis and. at   = 1 s, has (a) zero velocity and positive acceleration; (b) zero velocity and negative acceleration; (c) negative velocity and positive acceleration: (d) negative velocity .and negative acceleration. (e) For which …

## QUESTIONS

QUESTIONS 1. Which of the following relationships between the acceleration a and the displacement x of a panicle involve SHM: (a) a = 0.5x, (b) a = 400×2, (c) a = -2Ox, (d) a = -3×2? 2. Given x’ =·(2.0 m) cos(5t) for SHM and needing to find the velocity at t = 2 s, should you substitute for …

## REVIEW & SUMMARY VECTORS

REVIEW & SUMMARY VECTORS Scalars and Vectors Scalars, such as temperature, have magnitude only. They are specified by a number with a unit C  and obey the rules of arithmetic and ordinary algebra. Vectors, such as displacement, have both magnitude and direction (5 m, north) and obey the special rules of vector algebra. Adding Vectors Geometrically Two vectors …

## PROBLEM SOLVING TACTICS

PROBLEM SOLVING TACTICS Tactic 5: Common Errors with Cross Products Several errors are common in finding a cross product. (I) Failure to arrange vectors tail to tail is tempting when an illustration presents them head to tail: you must mentally shift (or better, redraw) one vector to the proper arrangement without changing its  orientation. (2) Failing to use …

## Sample Problem

Sample Problem       SOLUTION: The Key Idea is that when two vectors are in unit vector notation. we can find their cross product by using the distributive  law. Here that means we can write       We next evaluate each term with  determining the direction with the right hand rule. For the first …

## Sample Problem

Sample Problem Vector if lies in the plane has a magnitude of  units. and points in a direction 250° from the positive direction of x. Also vector b has a magnitude of ,12 units and points along the positive direction. What is the vector product c = a x b? SOLUTION: One Key Idea is that when …
