1. One lightyear is defined to be the distance light can travel in one year.

a) What is this distance in meters?

b) How long does it take for light to get to the Moon

2. Multiply 1.783 x 102 * 4.4 x 10-3, taking into account significant figures.

3. What is the surface area of a sphere of diameter 2.4 x102 cm?

4. What is larger 4000 L or 4 x 105 cm3 and you must show your reasoning.

5. A car travels 120 meters in one direction in 20 seconds. Then the car returns ¾ of the way back in 10 seconds.

a) Calculate the average speed of the car for the first part of the trip.

b) Find the average velocity of the car.

6. A sports car moving at constant speed travels 150 m in 4.00 s. If it then brakes and comes to a stop while decelerating at a rate of 6.0 m/s2. How long does it take to stop?

7. Explain a possible situation where you start with a positive velocity that decreases to a negative increasing velocity while there is a constant negative acceleration.

8. A stone is dropped from the roof of a high building. A second stone is dropped 1.25 s later. How long does it take for the stones to be 25.0 meters apart?

#### Determine weight of a nozzle

A vertical jet of water having a nozzle exit velocity of 15 ft/s with a diameter of 1 in. suspends a hollow hemisphere as indicated in Fig. P5.56. If the hemisphere is stati

#### Estimate the thrust needed from the propeller

The hydraulic dredge shown in Fig. P5.51 is used to dredge sand from a river bottom. Estimate the thrust needed from the propeller to hold the boat stationary. Assume the sp

#### Determine the mass of the deflector

A vertical, circular cross-sectional jet of air strikes a conical deflector as indicated in Fig. P5.55. A vertical anchoring force of 0.1 N is required to hold the deflector

#### Determine the diameter d so that the tank

Water flows steadily into and out of a tank that sits on frictionless wheels as shown in Fig. P5.63. Determine the diameter D so that the tank remains motionless if F = 0.

#### Estimate values of the x and y components of the force

Assuming frictionless, incompressible, one-dimensional flow of water through the horizontal tee connection sketched in Fig. P5.60, estimate values of the x and y components

#### Estimate the nozzle flowrate

A horizontal, circular cross-sectional jet of air having a diameter of 6 in. strikes a conical deflector as shown in Fig. P5.54. A horizontal anchoring force of 5 lb is requ

#### What is the vertical distance h

A vertical jet of water leaves a nozzle at a speed of 10 m/s and a diameter of 20 mm. It suspends a plate having a mass of 1.5 kg as indicated in Fig. P5.53. What is the ver

#### Determine the tension in rope b

Water flows steadily from a tank mounted on a cart as shown in Fig. 5.46. After the water jet leaves the nozzle of the tank, it falls and strikes a vane attached to another
