Problem 2 (25 pts.):
A block of mass
M
= 5.4 kg, at rest on a horizontal frictionless table, is
attached to a rigid support by a spring of constant
k
= 6000 N/m which is initially uncompressed.
A bullet of mass
m
= 9.5 g and velocity
arrowrightnosp
v
of magnitude 630 m/s strikes and becomes embedded
in the block. This compresses the spring and sets block and spring in simple harmonic motion.
Determine:
a) (
8 pts.
)
the speed of the block immediately after the collision.
b) (
9 pts.
)
the amplitude of the harmonic motion.
c) (
8 pts.
)
the frequency of the harmonic motion.

Problem 3
(25 pts.)
The figure to the right shows a block S
with mass
M
. The block is free to move along a horizontal
frictionless surface and connected, by a massless cord that
wraps over a frictionless pulley with mass
m
and radius
(
I=mr

/2) to a second block H also of mass
m
.
The hanging
block H falls as the sliding block S accelerates to the right.

Problem 4 (26 pts)
As shown in the figure, an
overhead
view of a thin uniform rod of length
0.80 m and mass
M
=1.0 kg rotating horizontally at angular speed 20 rad/s about an axis through
its center. A particle of mass M/3 initially attached to one end is ejected from the rod by a small
explosion and travels along a straight path that is perpendicular to the rod at the instant of
ejection. The particle's final speed
v
p
(after the ejection) is 11.0 m/s.
a)
(
6 pts.
) What is the angular momentum (magnitude and
direction) of the particle about the center of rod at the
moment before the ejection?
b)

10 pts.)
What is the final angular velocity (magnitude and direction) of the rod?
c)
(

) What is the change in kinetic energy of the system (the rod plus particle)?

Problem 5 (27 pts.):
A block of mass
m

rests on a frictionless inclined plane at a height
above a flat horizontal plane.
This mass is released and slides down the incline, eventually
colliding elastically with a second block at rest at
x
0 with mass
m

, with
m

Immediately after
the elastic collision, block number 2 moves to the
right with velocity

It encounters a region that has
friction with a coefficient of kinetic friction of
μ
