An adventurous archaeologist crosses between two rock cliffs by slowly going hand over hand along a rope stretched between the cliffs. He stops to rest at the middle of the rope. The rope will break if the tension in it exceeds 3.00×104 N. Our hero’s mass is 85.0 kg. Part A: If the angle θ is 13.0 ∘, find the tension in the rope (answer in form T= ? N. Part B: What is the smallest value the angle θ can have if the rope is not to break?

A 6.00-kg point mass and a 15.0-kg point mass are held in place 1.00 m apart. A point particle of mass m = 1.00 kg is released from a point between the two masses such that the net gravitational force on this particle is zero. Call the line connecting all the masses x-axis.
a. Find the center of mass of this system.
b. Find the exact position of this point mass.
c. Calculate potential energy of this system.
d. If the 6.00-kg mass is then removed and m is allowed to orbit the 15.0-kg mass, calculate (i) the gravitational acceleration due to the 15.0-kg mass at the location of m, (ii) the centripetal acceleration of m (hint: how does the centripetal acceleration relate to the gravitational acceleration?), (iii) the period of its revolution around the 15.0-kg mass, assuming that it stays at the same distance away from the 15.0-kg mass, and (iv) the orbital speed of m around the 15.0-kg mass.

A) Given that the blood flow through the body is 5 liters to minute, estimate the number of capillaries there are in the body using the following. Assume the diameter each capillary is 10 micrometers and the speed of blood through them is 0.03 cm/s

B) During a ventricle contraction, the average pressure pushing blood into the aorta is 100 mmHg. What is this pressure in Pascals? (use the density of mercury at 14 g/ml and the acceleration due to gravity of 10 m/s^2)

C) During a contraction, the heart pumps 75 ml of blood into the Aorta. Given the pressure above, how much work is done (in Joules) on the blood by the heart during a contraction?

D) Assuming a heart rate of 60 beats per minute, how many Calories (kilocalories) are burned just circulating blood during a day. (Take the approximation of 4 Joules per calorie.)

Michael Faraday unsuccessfully attempted to measure the potential difference across the River Thames due to the flow of water (which is a good conductor due to dissolved salts) in the earth's field. At Waterloo Bridge, where Faraday made his attempt, the river is 200 m wide and flows eastward at 2.4m/s . The earth's magnetic field here has a magnitude of 50 ?T and is tipped 65?from the horizontal, so it has both horizontal (north) and vertical (down) components.

Part B

What is the magnitude of the potential difference?

You are investigating the report of a UFO landing in an isolated portion of New Mexico, and encounter a strange object that is radiating sound waves uniformly in all directions. Assume that the sound comes from a point source and that you can ignore reflections. You are slowly walking toward the source. When you are 7.5 m from it, you measure its intensity to be 0.11W/m2.

An intensity of 1.0W/m2 is often used as the "threshold of pain". How much closer to the source can you move before the sound intensity reaches this threshold?
